Whilst researching a beauty feature for a newspaper this week, I came across Palmer’s facial skincare range- and am ashamed to admit I had no idea it existed!
It launched at the start of this year, and there are seven products in total, all at really competitive prices, so it’s perfect for a budget beauty routine.
I adore Palmer’s Cocoa Butter, so I was intrigued to try this range. The Palmer’s Perfecting Facial Oil (£9.99) has won awards in Australia, and is definitely the hero of this range.
It claims to solve all skincare needs, from moisturising and perfecting, through to anti-ageing. It contains nine pure oils – argan, macadamia, apricot, passion fruit, sunflower seed, coconut, sweet almond, sesame and grape seed oils which work together to create a powerful formula to perfect, and nourish skin to the fullest.
It also contains retinol and resveratrol – a natural anti-oxidant found within the skin of grapes with powerful anti-ageing benefits. Retinol helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation.
There’s also an oil cleanser in this range. Palmer’s Ultra Gentle Facial Cleansing Oil (£7.99) is at the budget end of the market, but it works. It isn’t my favourite formula because it emulsifies into a foam, which I don’t love but it does take the makeup off. It contains eight botanical pure oils.
There’s the Palmer’s Cleanser & Make-up Remover (£5.49) as an alternative. This gentle creamy cleanser and make-up remover contains a unique blend of cocoa butter, vitamin E, shea butter, aloe and evening primrose extract to
gently remove impurities, oil and make-up while helping skin retain its own moisture balance. You can take all your eye makeup off with this no problem.
The Palmer’s Exfoliating Facial Scrub (£5.49) contains NO nasty plastic microbeads, but is packed with crushed walnut shells and cocoa powder to make this scrub a very gentle exfoliating product.
The Palmer’s Enzyme Mask (£5.49) contains natural kaolin clay which is a face mask staple – because it works. This one also contains papaya fruit acids to clear away those surface skin cells.
To moisturise, it’s simple – there’s a day cream, and a night cream. Palmer’s Moisturising Day Cream SPF 15 (£7.99) keeps skin hydrated and works as a primer too. It contains aloe, shea butter and peptide complex. The SPF 15 protection helps to protect skin from sun damage during all four seasons.
The Palmer’s Night Cream (£7.99) has been formulated to deeply replenish and nourish whilst you sleep. The cream contains vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C and E to deeply hydrate, whilst anti ageing super ingredient retinol helps to regenerate skin whilst you sleep.
I’m impressed with this budget range – check it out. It’s available from Superdrug
