The temperatures have been well below freezing lately, and my skin has been paying the price. I’ve always struggled with eczema on my face, but it’s only recently that the weather has taken a toll on my body. Luckily enough, the good folks over at Palmer’s reached out just in the knick of time.
Palmer’s is one of those beloved American brands that has been around forever. You most likely know them from their Cocoa Butter products, but the brand actually has several skincare (and even haircare) lines. I had the pleasure of trying out a few products from their Coconut Oil Formula. Three to be exact, the Body Lotion, Body Cream and Body Oil.
I’m not usually picky about creams vs. lotions, but in this case I’m a cream gal all the way. This cream has a beautiful, almost whipped texture that feels like something you would expect from a luxury skincare brand. The lotion on the other hand is much more liquidy. Both, however, melt in to the skin without leaving any sort of greasy residue.
So by now I’m sure you’re thinking ‘great, another coconut scented cream’ – but this isn’t just any coconut scent. At first I thought it might just be in my head, but after a few weeks of using the cream and lotion, I swear, they smell just like the now discontinued Laura Mercier Creme de Pistache. Well, it might not be an exact match – this one is slightly more coconut-y, but a great dupe nevertheless.
The body oil is a beautiful product on it’s own, but it definitely doesn’t smell the same – it’s more of a pure coconut scent. Whatever your preference, lotion, cream or oil, these are definitely ones to check out!
Want to try them out for yourself? Well I’ve teamed up with Palmer’s to give away the trio to a couple of lucky followers! How do you enter? Head over to my Instagram, follow and like this post – it’s that easy!* Good luck xo
