REVIEW: PALMER’S CLEANSER & MAKEUP REMOVER
Last week, I told you guys how much I love Vitamin E based skincare and shared a little review which included the benefits of introducing it into your regime.
It comes as no surprise that I therefore love the Palmer’s Creamy Cleanser and Makeup Remover, which has been enriched with Vitamin E, alongside a selection of alternative, nourishing ingredients.
I was treated to this goodie by the PR team, and while it isn’t my ‘everyday go-to’, it’s definitely a product I turn to if my skin is a little sensitive or extremely dry and needs to be replenished with a creamy, cocoa butter based formula.
Retailing at just over £5 in the UK and available at a selection of stores, including Superdrug, this is a great ‘2-in-1’ if you’re looking for a product which removes makeup and cleanses your face simultaneously.
Enriched with Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E and Shea Butter, the formulation is also free of Parabens, Phthalates and Dyes – making it a great choice for fans of ‘natural’ skincare.
The scent (as you would expect from a cocoa based product) is rich and chocolatey – a common feature across the Palmer’s range.
I’m not completely against this, but it is quite strong when applied to the face, so if I could change one thing, it’d probably be how overpowering this can be (especially in the evening).
The formula itself – a cream which foams very slightly – should be applied directly onto wet skin and massaged into the face. After doing so, I tend to use either a spin brush or flannel to wipe away impurities.
One thing I’ve definitely noticed when using this product is how soft my skin feels afterwards, which is largely down to a combination of moisturising, skin-loving ingredients.
The inclusion of cocoa butter within the cleanser means that your skin is going to feel really hydrated… BEFORE you apply your moisturiser.
