TESTING OUT PALMERS SKIN CARE!

I feel like my blog content has mainly been about skincare these days, not that it's a bad thing but how much is too much you know? I mean, let's just be happy that I'm finally looking after my skin and ditching the makeup wipes life. This skincare post is entirely dedicated to my babe's at Palmers, Palmers is most famous for being the best damn smelling brand in the beauty industry (in my opinion). Everything just smells like cocoa butter and if it was edible I certainly wouldn't be using it for my face if you know what I mean...  the lovely Corene from Fuel Pr emailed me a few weeks back asking if I wanted to test out a few of their new skincare bits and of course I had to say yes. I actually had no idea that they even made skin care, I've tried their shampoos, tanning lotions and body creams but never in my life, have I seen any skin care items from them... so I'm pretty gassed if you can't already tell.


They sent me three products, the Ultra Gentle Facial Cleansing Oil, Micro Fine Exfoliating Facial Scrub and the Coconut Oil Body Lotion. I've never tried a cleansing oil before and if I'm honest, I have oily skin so I really wasn't expecting much from this product, the scrub, on the other hand, is a product I definitely knew I would love because the texture of it is something I've never seen before. The texture of the product is kind of rough and my first impressions of the product was that it was going to be way too rough for my skin but, it's that kind of product that you can actually feel working away on your skin (in a good and pleasing way). 

It looked as if it had tiny little microbeads in it but when I did a bit of research on the product, I found out that the beads are actually crushed walnut shells! No wonder the product felt a bit rough (rough in a good way) and I'm totally fine with that because it's so much better for the environment. The product claims that it's gentle enough to use 2,3 or more times a week and I have to admit, I did question that at first but honestly, it's so gentle on your skin and it actually exfoliates your skin, unlike other scrubs I've tried in the past. I have oily skin but the actual feel of it is incredibly dry, the exfoliating scrub has literally brought my skin back to life and if you could feel my face right now you would know that it's softer than a babies bum and my dry patches have literally disappeared.

Right, back to the oil. I LOVE this... no joke it's honestly something I was hesitant to try but my skin has never looked better. It's one of those oils that you use to take your makeup off at the end of the day and you get so much of it (192ml to be precise). I use it as an actual cleanser for when I wake up in the morning and I've also used it to remove my foundation, I haven't applied it around my eyes as it slightly scares me a little that I might rub my eyes too hard and end up blind. It does say that it removes eye makeup so if you're braver than me and you're looking for an eye makeup remover, this product is definitely for you! 

 I thought that as it is an oil, that it wouldn't be quite right for my skin type but in the few weeks that I've been using this product, my skin feels more hydrated than oily and my skin doesn't feel so much like sandpaper anymore. I used to have these dry patches on my chin and my under eyes and I was using a lot of matte products and a tonne of powders to combat my oily skin, I think this completely dried my skin out  (as well as not drinking a lot of water) and I've noticed such a difference by using this oil. 

It has 8 pure oils, Argan Oil, Apricot Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil, Sesame Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Soybean Oil and Grape Seed Oil and botanicals. Now, I have absolutely no idea what any of this actually means but all I know is that my skin feels so smooth and soft that I'm definitely not complaining and I would 100% buy this again. It's also free of parabens, phthalates and dyes and caters to all skin types which is fab! I use around 3 pumps on my face and I just rub it into my skin for a few minutes and then I rinse it off with some water and, voila! Clean, fresh and silky smooth skin.

I must admit, I'm not the best when it comes to looking after my skin. The body cream they sent me is coconut based and I'm not the biggest fan of the smell (if you like coconut you will love this) so I haven't reached for it as much as I thought I would. However, despite the smell the product makes my skin super smooth and soft, I don't really have a lot of hair on my arms or legs so it kind of bothers me that they're not the softest things in the world. When I have used it, my skin feels so soft and the consistency of the product is quite thick so you don't really need a lot of it, it's the perfect product to apply onto your skin at night or straight after a bath so you can wake up with super soft skin.

If you love body creams and coconut, you should try out the Palmers Coconut Formula Body Lotion... which you can find here
