When it comes to summer skincare I adopt a less is more attitude. I don't want to layer on tons of skincare, so I rely on 'one and done' formulas to give me a healthy glow. When it comes to body care, I adopt the same attitude. I go for a light lotion and then cover myself in sunscreen. I adore summer scents (sunscreen, coconut, monoi oil, light florals) and I will always give preference to summer scented products over wearing perfume as I find my favourites are often too heavy for the heat and humidity of summer.
I was recently given the opportunity to try three NEW product's from Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula
and I am just a little bit obsessed! The scents are fabulous and they're so hydrating - a definite win! And if you stick around til the end of my review, it could be a win for you too 😉
These new additions to the Palmer's
range drench the skin in rich moisture for dewy, radiant skin that looks lit from within. These products are free of harsh chemicals, contain ethically and sustainability sourced Coconut Oil and Tahitian Monoï Oil, infused with Tiaré Flower Petals. Did I mention they smell like a summer dream?!
My favourite of the three has got to be the Coconut Oil Body Lotion
. It's light, fast absorbing and gives my skin 24 hour moisture. It smells like delicious coconut and monoi, without being overpowering, and its formulated without parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, gluten, sulfate or dyes. This lotion is the bomb dot com and I can see myself using it year round reminiscing of carefree summers.
Palmer's Coconut Oil Body Oil
contains the same hydration benefits as the lotion but in concentrated oil form. This Body Oil
doesn't smell quite as strong as the lotion which is a slight let down for me, but it still smells nice. It adds an instant touch of radiance to my skin and I am here for it! This oil sinks in and doesn't feel heavy on but it is an oil and I'm not that into oils in the summer. Having said that, I would wear it if I were going out in the evening because it adds such a lovely glow.
Lastly, Palmer's Coconut Oil Luminous Hydration Facial Oil
. I wasn't expecting much from this facial oil and I'm not exaggerating when I say that it's really good.
This oil is non-greasy, fast absorbing and very hydrating. It features 10 pure, precious oils to boost hydration, nourish skin and add radiance. These are the miracle working oils you will find in Palmer's Coconut Oil Luminous Hydration Facial Oil
(in no particular order)
·Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera)
·Tahitian Monoi Oil (Gardenia Tahitensis Flower)
·Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis)
·Macadamia Oil (Ternifolia)
·Argan Oil (Argonia Spinosa)
·Grapeseed Oil (Vitis Vinifera)
·Maracuja (Passionflower) Oil (Passiflora Edulis)
·Sunflower Oil (Helianthus Annuus)
·Apricot Oil (Prunus Armeniaca)
·Sesame Oil (Sesamum Indicum)
Now I haven't been using this consistently so I can't really say what the long term effects are. I will say that upon application my skin looks glowing (not super dewy - thank goodness) and it feels super smooth. Surprisingly enough it's fast absorbing and my skin is perfectly balanced requiring no additional creams or lotions. I can see myself really getting into this come fall when I want to glow and need the extra boost of hydration. Currently, I'm only using it in the evenings when I need a little pick me up.
Oh, and I should note that it's important to exercise caution when using oils in the summer. Make sure to always apply sunscreen and use oils sparingly - you will burn otherwise. I learned this lesson the hard way many years ago.
