Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Calming Facial Lotion & Gentle Facial Exfoliating Scrub - Review
I won these beauty skincare minis (I am not sure if these are sold in the shops but they would be perfect as travel miniatures) on twitter.
Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Calming Facial Lotion
A light, fast-absorbing lotion specifically designed for sensitive skin prone to irritations.
A special blend of natural ingredients such as Chamomile and Aloe Vera helps reduce the appearance of redness, calms and soothes sensitive skin while leaving it lightly hydrated without a greasy feel. With continued use skin feels fresh, calm and healthy.
Contains Patented MLE (Multi Lamellar Emulsion) Technology: This special emulsion of plant derived ingredients mimics the structure of skin's own natural moisture. MLE helps in the restoration of the skins' protective barrier, which prevents skin from further drying due to environmental factors.
This facial moisturiser had a faint scent of cocoa butter and a soft, silky texture. It left my skin feeling comfortable, silky soft and not at all greasy. I really did feel like it was helping reduce redness in my cheeks/face and was perfect for my post holiday skin.
Would I consider buying it? Yes I would.
Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Gentle Exfoliating Scrub
Micro-fine crushed Cocoa Beans polish skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing the new smoother skin beneath. This daily facial scrub will enhance the skin's surface allowing it to better absorb the Daily Calming Facial Lotion and Night Renewal Cream.
Gentle enough to be used 2-3 times a week.
The scrub had a pleasant cocoa, chocolatey scent. The crushed cocoa beans made a good gentle polish for the skin. I did feel like I got smoother, softer skin using the scrub and it didn't irritate my skin but there was nothing in particular that made it stand out over and above other scrubs on the market.
I would be unlikely to purchase this product as I have other scrubs that I prefer.
