I started using the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter range in my teens and fell in love
with its buttery, delicious formula and incredible scent (it smells just like
chocolate). Fast forward many years later and I still use their
products daily, so when I was contacted by Palmer’s to sample some of their
product range, I jumped at the chance!
I was sent three products from their Coconut Oil Formula range: The Coconut
Oil Body Scrub, the Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm and the Coconut Oil Body Oil. All three products are infused with Coconut Oil and Tahitian Monoi Oil, which are two scents right up my alley! Today I’ll be sharing my thoughts on each product, so keep reading for my
The Coconut Oil Body Oil* contains sustainably sourced Coconut Oil and
Tahitian Monoi Oil to deeply nourish and hydrate the skin. It claims to offer
24 hour moisture, which after using over the past two weeks I can attest to. I
absolutely love this body oil and the level of moisture it offers my skin. It
has a pump to dispense the oil which is so convenient to use; a few squirts is
enough to hydrate the whole body. I love the ease of a body oil and actually
prefer it to body butters and moisturisers; they are just so convenient to
apply and sink into the skin quicker. The scent is lovely and light, and leaves
a subtle coconut scent on the skin after application. I am really loving this
body oil and have been reaching for it every night after my shower.
The Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm* is a paraben free, gluten free and mineral
oil free cleanser which melts grime and makeup off the skin. Coconut
Oil and Tahitian Monoi Oil help to keep the skin deeply hydrated . I don’t often
use cleansing balms as I prefer the ease of ordinary cream cleansers, however I
was really blown away by this product. After a few seconds of massaging the
balm into my skin, all of my makeup completely dissolved. My skin was left
feeling very soft and clean, and ready for the next step of my skincare
routine. The balm transforms into a creamy cleanser when it comes into contact with the skin, so it feels really rich and luxurious. I’ve tried out a few cleansing balms in the past and this is definitely the best one I’ve ever used. I like the fact that it doesn’t strip any oils from the skin and leave it with that ‘tight’ feeling, as my skin is on the drier side. This cleanser is perfect for removing heavier makeup or when you feel like treating yourself to a decadent pamper night.
The Coconut Oil Body Scrub* is a grainy scrub infused with Coconut Oil and Tahitian Monoi Oil to
leave skin feeling smooth and moisturised. I had just run out of my current
scrub so this came at the perfect time. Firstly, I really like the
formula of this scrub; it’s nice and grainy, so I feel it gives the skin a good
scrubbing! I normally apply it with my hands and scrub my body in circular motions, and my skin feels so soft and smooth after use! There is nothing worse than using a scrub that leaves the skin dry and itchy, and this scrub did an amazing job of leaving my skin incredibly hydrated. I also love the convenience of the flip top- I find screw tops very fiddly (especially in the shower) so this was appreciated! The Coconut Oil Body Scrub is a great, everyday exfoliator to keep in the shower, and especially great for prepping the skin for fake tan.
It’s no surprise that I adored all three products, seeing as I’m obsessed with coconut anything! I actually use quite a lot of Palmer’s products in my everyday life so it was nice to have the chance to sample some of their newer releases!
Have you tried anything from the Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula range? What did you think?
