Hello my lovelies,
I’m back with another skincare post, for me skincare is so important not just for your face but for your whole body. For your skin to feel smooth, hydrated and soft – you just can’t beat it. Palmer’s over the summer have recently launched their Coconut Oil Formula range which I was lucky to receive part of their range to try out. Palmer’s for me are a brand renown for being kind to skin and always strive to hydrate the skin and ensure it is in the best possible condition.
When I was asked to try out some of the new range infused with coconut oil I just thought it would be rude not to! We all know coconut oil is an incredible ingredient not just in the beauty world but even down to adding it to food! I’m a big lover of coconut the smell and I just thought it was perfect to try out and to obviously report back to my lovely readers.
The range as a whole is targeted getting moisture back into the skin, which is always a big thing to me and I am sure a lot of other people. The coconut oil is also formulated with Vitamin E which is great as this is an antioxidant! All the range contains no parabens, no gluten and no sulfates which is a massive bonus as there are a lot of products on the market that have so many artificial ingredients and half the time you don’t know what you are putting onto your skin!
So as a whole the products are pretty fab – they are scented which is mainly coconut (obviously) but it is lightly fragranced and nothing too overpowering. I do find with lightly fragrenced products that the smell doesn’t linger around too long which for me is a shame because it’s half the reason I apply body moisturisers! However, this is different and I presume because it is coconut oil it is long lasting. There is nothing better than getting a waft of your skin halfway through the day – I know this sounds weird but trust me I’m sure you know what I am on about!
All the products easily absorb into the skin, there is no waiting around for 10 minutes waiting for the product to sink into the skin so you can put some clothes on. For me this is a massive bonus – a lot of products I use I sit around aimlessly waiting. Valuable minutes lost in life! Another note to add is that all the products have left me with smooth, supple skin and not just for a few hours this is a constant thing!
Coconut Oil – Body Cream
So this I treat as a body butter, as it’s in a tub it’s easy to get out but I would say it is more like a cream in consistency – but remember a little goes a long way! I use this around 3 times a week and apply when I get out of the shower of an evening. A little pamper after the shower, it leaves me feeling so fresh and it perfect to apply while you have a face mask on. I always feel like it’s a treat to put this on because it just feels so luxurious and does wonders to my skin. I think this one is my favourite, only just though!
I this think this is because it’s more rich, it contains 3 different oils. Of course the first is coconut oil, the 2nd is Monoi Oil which hydrates & pampers and finally sweet almond oil which soothes and comforts skin. What more could you want from a body cream!?
Coconut Oil – Body Lotion
This is something I use on a daily basis and actually I have included it in my daily morning routine. I can’t leave the house without applying this to at least my legs and arms, it just makes me feel ready for the day. I think people really do underestimate what smooth hydrated skin really does to you. I feel like a more put together woman in the morning and I always get asked about what I apply because it just smells so damn good!
Coconut Oil – Body Oil
For me, oil is something I have a love hate relationship with. Overall I have never really been a fan. I just feel as though they are too rich and they never sink into my skin properly. But, the girl I am I have to try everything. I was expecting not to like this as a lot of oils I have tried just don’t work for me and my skin. However, I was completely surprised that I fell in love with it.
Now it isn’t something I use that often mainly because I like to save this for those all out pamper evenings. You know where you go all out on a Sunday afternoon/evening where you paint your nails, wash your hair, face mask, complete skincare routine and obviously moisturise. Well this oil is now part of my pamper routine. It really is a luxury product after I have applied it I feel like I’m adulting well, my life is blooming good and ready for the week ahead. Who doesn’t love some pamper time!?
Overall I love these products and don’t really have a bad word about them. I would seriously go and try these out they aren’t your average range of products I promise you and if you love the scent of coconut then it truly is a win win!
Go check out their full range of the coconut oil range here – I really want to try the shampoo and conditioner now, watch this space! Do let me know if you have tried this range and what your thoughts are – I would love to know!
p.s. I was kindly gifted these products and was not asked to write a review I just want to share it with you guys. All the opinions are my own 🙂
