COCOA BUTTER FORMULA PRODUCTS - ROAD TESTING SKINCARE PRODUCTS REVIEW !




Hi beauties,

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula has always been on my skincare agenda such as their body lotions. I tend to use them during winter because they're super moisturising and really thick in consistency. For this review, I discovered that there's way more than a body care lotion -IN FACT they product other skincare products which I have tested out and I was intrigued by their other range of products such as: 
  • Palmer's Cocoa Butter - Multi Effect Perfecting Facial Oil 
  • Palmer's Cocoa Butter - Skin Perfecting Moisturizing Day Cream
  • Palmer's Cocoa Butter - Creamy cleanser & Makeup remover 
  • Palmer's Cocoa Butter - Moisture Rich Night cream
PALMER'S COCOA BUTTER - MULTI EFFECT PERFECTING FACIAL OIL REVIEW

Known for a type of facial oil containing a rich blend of cocoa butter with the nine anti-ageing oils which acts to benefit skin by making it look super rejuvenated, glowing, radiant and of course more youthful looking. The product contains retinol (Vitamin A) which works to smooth out the skin and look to reduce pigmentation and decrease the appearance of wrinkles. This oil is jam packed with Vitamins C and E and with the following oils of argan, macadamia nut, apricot, rosehip, coconut, sweet almond, grapeseed and sesame! There's is sooooooo many types of oils in this product --- it's really good at helping to nourish your skin. Although I wasn't able to use this in the long-term as I was just testing out the sample vial bottle, I found that it made my skin look more radiant and glowing the next morning after using the product at night. After cleansing my skin, I would apply a small amount and massage it in circular motions to ensure the product is well absorbed onto my skin. 

The product felt really lightweight and it was definitely super easy to use. I would consider purchasing the whole product the next time I am at Priceline stores and see if it would benefit my skin in the longer term. I am very picky when it comes to facial oils because I don't want it to be too oily for my face but I am glad I got to try this one out. Overall, it's a 4/5 stars for me! 

For nearest stockist of this product, you can check out their online website (http://www.palmersaustralia.com/or alternatively you can pick this up at Priceline, Chemist Warehouse and selected pharmacies.


PALMER'S COCOA BUTTER - SKIN PERFECTING MOISTURISING DAY CREAM

It's said to be a very lightweight and fast absorbing cream containing SPF 15+ -- I'm always eager to see what products with SPF15+ can offer my skin and this day cream certainly offers daily protection from the sun's UV rays. The cream also works to help relieve any irritations or redness on skin. It includes many antioxidants, a peptide complex along with much needed vitamins such as Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C and E... which benefit the skin by giving the much needed moisture and rebalancing the skin again. 

Upon using the sample of the product, the texture of the product was thick and creamy. I felt it absorbed really well on skin and it smelt amazing and fresh. I love how the product is completely free from any harsh parabens and dyes making it super healthy and safe to use. I like the formulation of the product but I feel that the day cream can be a little over-moisturising and for those with oily skin, it's not really suitable because it will leave your skin feeling a tad oily. Nevertheless, it kept my skin feeling really hydrated which is what I look for in a day cream. The product basically stayed on my face for the whole day and I did not experience any dry or itchy skin. 

I enjoy the subtle cocoa butter fragrance of the cream as it smells pleasant and makes me want to even use more. However, I just used a small amount the next day to ensure that it doesn't get oily on my skin - and so far that's working! If you have dry skin and are looking for a day cream with the added benefits of moisturisation, then this product may be for you! 
Overall I am giving this a 4/5 stars! 



PALMER'S COCOA BUTTER - CREAM CLEANSER AND MAKEUP REMOVER

Palmer also stocks cleansers to remove make up and grime from your skin. I tested out their cleanser and make-up remover and have found the texture to be really creamy and it foams up really well when rinsed with water. Interestingly, I found that the cleanser contains cocoa butter, Vitamin E, shea butter, Aloe Vera and Evening primrose which are all natural goodies that certainly benefit skin by gently removing any dirt and impurities from the skin - especially if you have oily typed based skin - this cleanser will make your skin breathe and feel super refreshing. 

I found my skin to feel more balanced and not uncomfortable after using the cleanser and I have found no redness or irritations after using it. My skin did not feel dry but instead it felt more hydrated and moisturised. Even though I used a sample of this tube, I quite enjoyed the product overall. I experienced no breakouts from using the cleanser and left my skin feeling super soft and smooth. I can see a natural glow after cleansing and of course, I would follow up with a good type of moisturiser to rebalance my skin. I felt that the cleanser was not harsh and this is really important for me because when cleansers make your skin feel irritated and uncomfortable - there's really no point in using them, but for this cleanser it was amazing! Overall, I am giving this a 4.7/5 stars! 



PALMER'S COCOA BUTTER - MOISTURISING RICH NIGHT CREAM

The Palmer's Moisture rich night cream is an amazing product that works wonders.... I felt that it gave me smoother and softer looking skin. My complexion was glowing and very radiant the next morning. I used the cream overnight after my cleansing process to see whether it would work for me and found that it left my skin really hydrated and well conditioned. 

The product contains 100% cocoa butter, antioxidants A, B1, B2, B3 and C and also Retinol where it's made to replenish skin and make it more youthful looking. If you're looking for a product that doesn't block pores and help with scarring, then this is the perfect cream as it's lightweight and does not feel sticky when applied onto skin. The cream will seem like it's super thick but when you really massage this onto your skin, you'll find that it absorbs well on skin. My skin felt tighter and firmer the next morning after using this night cream and I can visibly see results with my skin. 

For the longer term, I would need to use this over a few weeks to truly see results with my skin in terms of fine lines and wrinkles. In terms of fragrance, the product has a pleasant smell and I don't think anyone can flaw this aspect of the product.  (I mean how can you NOT like butter formulas!) It's really sweet smelling and I am person who loves the sweet scent in creams. Overall I am giving this a 5/5 stars for being a really good hydrating night cream to use. 

Happy reading!

Cheers,
Livia xo
