#CoconutEscape: Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Range
*pours coconut oil over entire life*
As a self-confessed coconut oil addict, I was ecstatic when I was invited to the Palmer's #CoconutEscape event for the launch of their new beauty products that have been added to their award-winning coconut oil formula range. Palmer's transformed the rooftop of the Ham Yard Hotel in London into a tropical paradise lovingly decorated with coconuts, where I sipped rum punch, tasted the delicious coconut-inspired canapés and of course, slathered myself in the new products from the range.
Palmer's coconut oil formula is made with a nourishing combination of raw coconut oil, monoi oil and sweet almond oil. Using products infused with coconut oil means that they contain naturally high levels of fatty acids and proteins that are essential for keeping skin radiant and healthy. Basically, if you didn't already know, coconut oil has superpowers. It's naturally anti-fungal, anti-bacterial and penetrates skin better than most oils - AND - it smells like heaven.
So, if you're looking to add a few more coconutty products to your daily beauty regime -
have a read below :)
Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Body Cream - £5.00
With thanks to their wonderful formula of coconut oil, monoi oil and sweet almond oil, Palmer's Body Cream deeply softens, hydrates and pampers dry skin. As well as smelling absolutely divine, the formula is rich and creamy but easily absorbed by the skin - so there's no waiting around for hours before you can get dressed.
My favourite thing about this product is that your body remains streak-free from white lotion marks after application, which means you can apply it quickly and daily moisturising isn't a chore. As this product is full of tropical goodness, it makes a perfect aftersun cream which gently soothes the skin, so make sure you pack some in your suitcase before you jet off to warmer climes.
Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Body Oil - £7.00
Oils can work wonders for our skin (and hair and nails and everywhere else you want to put it!) and the Palmer's Body Oil is the perfect tropical indulgence for soft, hydrated skin. Lightweight, nourishing and heavenly scented, this body oil allows you to feel pampered all day long.
This is my favourite product in the range as it leaves your skin feeling silky soft without any stickiness. It can be used directly on the skin for ultimate absorption or in the bath / shower for a luxurious bathing experience. I like to use it directly on my skin as it gives a gorgeous dewy glow that makes skin look beautiful and healthy. But be careful of the pump; it can become a little over-excited!
Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Body Lotion - £4.00
When skin is in need of a little bit of TLC, bring it back to life with a squirt of body lotion. This milky and creamy formula is ideal for those who prefer a lighter moisturiser that still provides enough hydration for the skin to feel soft and smooth.
I prefer a cream so this is my least favourite product in the range. It moisturises well and makes skin feel beautifully soft but it just doesn't feel as rich and luxurious as the body cream. However, the fact that it smells so wonderful is enough to keep you using it!
Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Hand Cream - £2.40
We use our hands all the time, so a good hand cream is essential for keeping them soft and supple. Palmer's Hand Cream offers 24hr protection to prevent dry, cracked hands with a creamy, fast-absorbing formula that locks in moisture.
I love the texture of this product as it is thick, moisturising and doesn't leave a sticky residue on your hands, meaning you can go about your daily business without your hands feeling 'unclean'. As it is jam-packed with organic oils, skin instantly feels replenished and soft and smells gorgeous! When applying it, make sure you pay particular attention to your nails as massaging them with a nourishing oil-based formula stimulates growth and keeps them strong.
