WINTER SKIN SAVIOUR FROM PALMER’S
To keep my skin from being battered by the cold wintery weather, I’ve been slathering on a lot of Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula products! Coconut Oil is the ingredient that’s causing a buzz in the beauty industry at the moment.
Just like how a lot of new beauty launches from the last couple of years has contained Hyaluronic Acid, this year has been all about the coconut oil! It’s just in everything at the moment!
I’d describe the scent like coconut ice-cream/Malibu Rum! There’s no denying that this is scented with tropical coconut, it is very strong! I have been using the body oil, the body butter, and body lotion (body lotion is not pictured, because I was using it at the time and forgot to take it out of the bathroom!).
It will leave your skin feeling so soft and smooth. The lotion is similar but it’s slightly lighter (and slightly cheaper in price), and the body oil is for those who want a quick and easy way of moisturising, especially in the mornings after a shower when you don’t want to faff about with creams and lotions.
However, Palmers Coconut Oil Formula Co-Wash feels very strange on my hair, like you’re using a lotion or conditioner to wash your hair. It doesn’t contain SLS or any other harsh ingredients, so it didn’t expect it foam or lather up. But it just didn’t leave my hair feeling very clean afterwards.
Maybe I will only use this on the ends of my hair to condition it, rather than applying it to my scalp and leaving my hair feeling greasy and heavy.
As well as Manuka Honey, it also contains cocoa butter and shea butter (uh, hello you amazing, moisturising ingredients!). Same goes for the leave-in conditioner* – it detangles and de-frizzes hair. With the wind and rain, us girls need all the de-frizzing products on stand-by. Am I right?!
