My initial introduction to the cocoa-butter-based face range from Palmer’s is a facial. Got to love that. Anything that involves lying down and having someone else cleanse, exfoliate and moisturise my face is on a winning streak.
Palmer’s is a household name, famous for its ethically sourced cocoa butter formula which is the basis for its renowned body products that are also chock full of vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C and E, flavonoids and polyphenol, which helps fight ageing free radicals and also has a mega moisturising hit.
Step one in my mini facial is a double cleanse with the Creamy Cleanser & Makeup Remover, $9.99.
The double cleanse follows much the same principle as shampooing your hair twice, once to get rid of the build up of the day’s grime and makeup and the second sweep to thoroughly cleanse and prep the skin.
Step 2 is the Micro Fine Exfoliating Facial Scrub, $9.99, with finely crushed walnut shells that combine with cocoa butter to gently exfoliate.
Step 3 in my mini facial is the Moisturising Day Cream, $14.99, with SPF15.
We love a two-in-one product that moisturises and protects. The therapist massages the cream in, in an upward motion for best results.
The finishing touch: the essential Illuminating Eye Serum that hydrates the delicate skin around my eyes.
