Brand Love: Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula

Hey everyone! Today I have a brand I want to rave about. It isn't a new brand, it's a brand that has been on our shelves for a while, a brand i've been using for years but never really given enough credit to! Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula is a brand that uses cocoa butter in all their products and have some of the yummiest smelling moisturisers and body washes on the market! Today I want to share with you a few of their products i'm absolutely loving at the moment. All these products can be found at Priceline and selected pharmacies nationally.

Anti-Aging Smoothing Lotion (RRP $7.40) - This cream, enriched with Alpha/Beta Hydroxy claims to reveal younger looking skin. As i'm already still young, I don't see those benefits, but what I like about this product is that it feels really oily when you first apply it, but it absorbs really well into the skin, leaving it feel super hydrated and soft and not at all oily. It has the signature cocoa butter smell with a hint of lemon.

Eventone BB Cream (RRP $9.99) - This BB cream is a really light-weight formula with low-medium coverage. It blends really well and gives a very natural-dewy look to the skin. I love the way this product makes my skin look and feel and doesn't look greasy after a whole day of wearing considering it contains spf15!

Cocoa Butter Body Wash (RRP $5.99) - This moisturising body wash has a gorgeous rich scent of cocoa butter and lathers up really well. I use this on a loofah all over my body and it makes my skin incredibly soft and I smell good all day!

Natural Bronze Instant (RRP $9.39) -  I'm generally not one to apply bronzers, fake tans or gradual natural tanners as i'm already quite naturally tan... but after coming back from Europe looking very pale (for my standards) I was glad to try this out! It is a chocolate brown lotion that instantly tints the skin to a natural looking colour. I wasn't able to notice the sunless tanner develop quickly and wasn't sure how long to wait as there is no guide on the packaging. I've been tanning by the pool now (I know, i'm sorry!) and have already gotten quite a good tan, i've still been using this product on my legs and have definitely noticed how bronzed they look! I am actually surprised by this product and love the way it smells too!

Purifying Mask (RRP $9.99) - This mask is a product i've been using on and off for the last 3 or 4 years. It contains kaolin clay that helps to draw impurities and dirt out from the skin and I really love this mask. It is how a mask should be! I apply it thinly all over my face and let it dry for 10 minutes. I do this once a week. If I see a pimple (or pimples) forming then I will apply the mask directly to the pimple and not cover the entire face, and notice that it helps to keep my skin balanced, smooth and really clean! It has a clay-like smell.

So these are a few of my favourite products by Palmers, what's your favourite product from them? I'd love to know!
