Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Body Lotion & Oil Review

Palmer’s is on a roll. They keep on impressing me over and over again. First I was completely blown away by the Coconut Oil Formula hair care range. BLOWN AWAY! I have not bought another shampoo since trying the range last year. You can read my review HERE. Then I tried the new Raw Shea Butter body lotion. Once again it was love. My full review is over HERE.

Today I introduce to you yet another fab range by this truly fantastic brand.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula Body Lotion and Body Oil

Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Body Lotion & Body Oil

Coconut treats that deeply hydrate and pamper… you’ve hit the nail on the head Palmer’s. That’s exactly what these two beauties do.

Both the body lotion and body oil is formulated with ethically and sustainably sourced coconut oil  and Tahitian Monoi Oil. If you want soft, smooth, hydrated and delicately scented skin, I highly recommend both of these budget-friendly treats.

The body lotion is rich and moisturising and leaves my skin feeling soothed and calm. My skin is very dry and becomes extremely sensitive with change of season, and this lotion is exactly what it has been craving for. It is thicker than the Raw Shea Butter lotion and it is ideal for winter when my skin needs a little extra care. Brownie points for the pump bottle!

The body oil is just as lovely. It’s light and fast absorbing and works great when applied to damp skin straight after a bath or shower. It doubles a hair treatment, but I have yet to try it on my locks.

Another reason I adore Palmer’s is that all of their products are extremely gentle and nasties-free. I use all of their body care products on my little girl’s delicate skin as well.

The oil and the lotion retail for a steal at only R63 each and are available at Clicks and Dis-Chem.

Palmer’s Raw Shea Body Lotion Review

It’s not often that a budget body lotion is worthy of it’s own blog post. Does the Palmer’s Raw Shea Body Lotion deserve it? One thousand times YES!

Palmer’s Raw Shea Body Lotion

Palmer’s combined African Marula Oil, Vitamin E and Oatmeal Extract with Raw Shea Butter and created a lotion that makes my heart skip a beat. How can you get that excited about a body lotion, you may ask?

I have very dry, super sensitive skin that gets lathered in lotion or cream after every shower. From top to toe. I go through a lot of product very quickly. My ultimate body lotion should leave my skin soft, smooth, nourished and it should not break the bank. I also need it to keep my skin looking and feeling moisturised for the whole day and work with my sensitive (often temperamental) skin.

Palmer’s, your body lotion ticks all the boxes. I seriously love it.

What also impressed me is the fact that even though the lotion is not very thick, it still feels rich and nourishing. It absorbs quickly and will not make your skin feel suffocated which makes it great for summer.

The key ingredients of this beauty are:

  • African Raw Shea Butter: deeply moisturizes and softens skin
  • Marula Oil: improves texture and radiance
  • Oatmeal Extract: calms and soothes irritation
  • Vitamin E: rejuvenates and combats free radical damage
  • Grapeseed Oil: keeps skin looking youthful
  • Sunflower Seed Oil: balances tone and texure
  • Soybean Oil: helps prevent skin dehydration

The formula is also paraben-, phthalates-, sulphate-, mineral oil-, gluten- and dye free.

I was worried about the scent…

I know that Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula is a cult favourite, but I do not like it at all. The formulations of all the products in the range are gorgeous, yes, but the sweet scent has always put me off. I was worried that I would have the same experience with the Shea Formula, but this lotion smells amazing. Think subtle and clean. It is gorgeous. Really and truly.

I am so happy with Palmer’s Raw Shea Body Lotion and it will be bought over and over again. And I don’t have to feel guilty as 400ml goes for only R60. Make sure to grab one next time you’re in Clicks or Dis-Chem. You won’t be sorry.
