Brand Spotlight: Palmer's Skincare

Palmer's cocoa butter skincare

I've been testing out some amazing skincare from Palmer’s recently so thought I’d give you a little overview of the range and share my thoughts on the products that I’ve been using. Palmer’s are really well known for their gorgeous smelling cocoa butter infused bodycare products, but I’ll be honest, I had no idea they had a skincare range as well. I’m kind of kicking myself on this one as it’s a bit of a winner! Palmer's skincare and lip care range consists of a few more products than what’s featured here so I highly recommend checking out the full range.

Let’s jump straight in with Palmer’s Ultra Gentle Facial Cleansing Oil*. This is a delicious blend of 8 pure oils which dissolves makeup and leaves the skin feeling soft and nourished. It’s quite a lightweight formula which emulsifies with water and doesn’t leave any stickiness or a film on the skin afterwards. The cleansing oil easily melts away my mascara and eyeliner so there’s no rubbing or any of that nonsense. I’ve been really suffering with hayfever this year so my eyes are really sensitive. I’ve never had it before so I have a new found sympathy for regular sufferers, how do you guys cope?!

The Palmer’s Purifying Enzyme Mask* is a nice treat for dull or congested skin, best used once or twice a week. It’s a kaolin clay based mask which detoxes the skin, but it also contains papaya fruit acids for gentle exfoliation. As far as clay masks go when they dry down, this one is really comfortable, it’s really creamy which must be down to the cocoa butter – which smells heavenly I might add, so no fear of your face feeling like it’s about to crack! My skin is looking much more radiant and smoother as a result and it also means that my serums and oils sink straight in to do their job.

Which brings me nicely onto the Palmer’s Multi-Effect Perfecting Facial Oil*. Probably my favourite product of the four I have, this is quite a luxurious little oil for the price point. I tend to use oils in the evening so this is lovely to massage in at the end of my skincare routine. It comprises of a blend of anti-ageing oils, cocoa butter, resveratoral – an antioxidant derived from grapes, but most surprisingly it also contains retinol. I love retinol for helping tackle ageing so was very happy to see it in the ingredients. Retinol can be quite harsh on the skin but the Palmer’s oil is very gentle and doesn’t cause any peeling or discomfort. I’ve been using it for a few weeks and so far my skin is very soft and nourished feeling – definitely hiding the late night Netflix sessions so I’m going to keep going with this!

To complement the oil, in the day I’ve been enjoying the Palmer’s Skin Perfecting Moisturising Day Cream* as my morning moisturiser. It’s fairly thick so I just use about half a pump a time. It’s the most scented of the four, but I love cocoa butter so that’s no issue for me. Although it’s quite thick, it sinks in super quickly, and leaves my skin nourished and soothed. It’s also packed with anti-oxidants and includes SPF 15 so perfect for city-dwellers and commuters like me, although as you know I always add on a separate SPF afterwards. Some things never change…

If you love cocoa butter and you’re looking for an affordable range definitely check out Palmer’s as they have pretty much everything covered!
