Being spoiled this summer with such sunny and hot weather here in Montreal, I've been making the best of it and have been spending a lot of time outdoors! Not having A/C also means I have been spending a lot of time cooling off in the pool. Since I have been soaking up the sun and taking dips so much, I've been reaching for more body care products to repair and moisturize my skin after sun and chlorine exposure. Call me obsessed, but whenever I see that a product contains coconut oil or has a coconut scent, I am immediately drawn to it. So when I heard about the new Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula line*, I knew I wanted to see just how good these actually are. I've been a fan of Palmer's for many years (their Cocoa Butter Formula body products and face oil are ones I highly recommend!), so I'm excited to be sharing these new additions with you.
What I appreciate so much about the Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula skincare range is that it contains a bunch of natural ingredients that have been ethically and sustainably sourced from around the world. The raw coconut oil comes from South East Asia, monoï oil from Tahiti, sweet almond oil from Spain, and added vitamin E work together to envelop the skin in a fresh and sweet scent, with the antioxidant-rich formula also being infused with Tiaré flower petals. All products are free of parabens, phtalates, mineral oil, gluten, sulfates and dyes.
The Palmer's Coconut Oil Body Oil (C$5.99, 150 mL), while sounding quite heavy, is actually very light and quick-absorbing once applied. It comes with a pump dispenser, making application a breeze. Within a couple of minutes, the oil is dry to the touch and leaves my skin looking extra glowy and smooth and I don't have to worry about a greasy residue that will transfer onto my clothes. The base is made out of soybean oil and contains added canola oil, safflower oil, grapeseed oil, macadamia seed oil, sunflower oil, argan oil and even cocoa butter. You can just imagine what a delight it is to slather my skin in the stuff! It also provides 24-hour moisture and the rich tropical scent lingers for a couple of hours. I like applying this body oil as soon as I step out of the shower to lock in that moisture!
The Palmer's Coconut Oil Body Lotion (C$5.99, 250 mL) not only contains coconut oil, but it also includes coconut milk to give it a creamy texture. Just like the Body Oil, it sinks into the skin very quickly without leaving a white layer behind. You also don't have to worry about feeling sticky or greasy following application. The scent is again very uplifting and sweet (I would say it is more pronounced compared to the Body Oil) and it also lingers, and my skin stays moisturizing all day long! I have especially been loving using this lotion on my feet and elbows at bedtime since they can always use some extra care. Best part? Every time I slather my skin in this stuff, I start daydreaming about being on holiday somewhere tropical!
