This week we share with you the ins and outs of one of our favourite brands here at bb - Palmer's!
Who are Palmer's?
In case you are one of the few people who hasn't slathered on their weight in lotion of the Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula, let bb fill you in! Palmer's is one of the leading skincare brands in the world. It is hard to believe, but Palmer's has been moisturising skin for over 170 years! Founded in 1840 in the States, Palmer's made its Australian debut in 1997 with the now-famous, aforementioned Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula, which today enjoys a cult following thanks to its creamy formula with a sumptuous scent. No surprise that Palmer's is the number one brand in Cocoa Butter, available in over 80 countries. That is a lot of smooth and nourished bods right there! With a now extensive range, Palmer's is also very affordable and easily available - just another couple of feathers in the Palmer's cap!
What is the Palmer's range?
Palmer's have perfected their product range to provide for every skincare need; Hand and Body, Facial Care, Stretch Mark Care, Hair Care and Body and Shower. Each product contains a special formulation using the richest, most luxurious ingredients including Cocoa Butter, Olive Butter and Shea Butter. Palmer's products are also "cruelty free" and no tests are conducted on animals.
Here at bb we are big fans of the Cocoa Butter range, which uses ingredients sourced from the fruit of the Cacao Tree, a tropical plant of the equatorial Americas. The reason it is so moisturising is that it is made from 100% pure Cocoa Butter enriched with Vitamin E to smooth and soothe with long lasting effects - 100% Cocoa Butter means no watery fillers that will evaporate from your skin. Instead everything that you rub onto your skin is there for pure nourishment!
The Cocoa Butter range includes product for haircare, hair removal, mother and baby, men, face care, bath care and body care. Apart from the Cocoa Butter Formula, we recommend trying the Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturising Body Wash, which smells as divine as the lotion, and also moisturises during the cleansing process, whilst being free of sulphates. Put simply, it will make your skin happy!
Our product pick
Our current product pick made it to the top because it is truly amazing- after all, it has its work cut out for it considering the amazing range of the Palmer's products it was up against! Palmer's Night Renewal Cream is a richly moisturising, anti-ageing night cream that your skin will love so much it will drink it in, absorbing super fast. Targeted skin-firming and smoothing ingredients work hard while you sleep to maintain skins moisture levels, so that your face will continue to feel nourished and fresh the next day. To use, simply apply all over your face after cleansing at night and go to sleep - and that's it! The active ingredients, such as Vitamin E, Evening Primrose, Milk Proteins, Peptides, Retinol, Shea Butter and of course Cocoa Butter will do all the work while you dream away, restoring and renewing your skin in the process.
Why we love Palmer's?
We love Palmer's because their products smell amazing and they are super nourishing on the skin. Katy Perry is also a fan, plus Palmer's is easily available. Oh, and did we mention they smell so good, you kind of want to eat them? I have also been known to take to my empty container of Cocoa Butter Formula with scissors, cutting it open to try and scrape out every last bit of moisturiser left inside. Moisturiser that drives you to beauty insanity? It must be good!
Giaan Rooney is also a huge fan, and to get into the Olympic Spirit, she shared her London 2012 Palmer's travel kit via the Palmer's Blog. Check it out here.
