When you speak of Palmer’s, naturally the products that come to mind would be their body lotions, stretch marks cream, etc. I’m not a fan of cocoa butter, so I don’t use Palmer’s cocoa butter range (although I have to say, their olive butter range is pretty fab).
Imagine my surprise when I found out about Palmer’s new daily face care range at Priceline. Apparently, Australia is the first international market to have access to this new product launch.
I was curious, so I flipped the cap of their facial cleanser to give it a bit of a sniff. Hey, it did not stink! (I’m not a fan of cocoa butter) So I’ve decided to give it, and the scrub, a go (review of the scrub coming up tomorrow).
This creamy cleanser foams lightly to remove dirt, oil and impurities without over-drying. Milk proteins and antioxidants brighten and hydrate, leaving skin soft, fresh and glowing. Use morning and evening to jump start your skincare routine.
First impression of the cleanser? It comes in cream-form, but boy, it’s mighty thick. I had to squeeze the tube really hard just to get the cleanser out. In fact, I’ve been squeezing the darn thing so hard, that I popped the bottom (or is it the top?) of the tube
As the cream was really thick, I had an awful feeling that it would be quite harsh and stripping. I’m very glad to be proven otherwise. As thick as it was, when it went on my skin, it applied ever-so-smoothly, and there wasn’t a squeaky feel to it. My skin felt refreshed, and best of all, not tight and dry after cleansing.
The cleanser does have a hint of cocoa butter fragrance, but it’s fairly mild, so it wasn’t revolting at all.
Palmer’s Gentle Daily Cleanser is suitable for all skin types, especially more for those with dehydrated skin. It costs AU$10, and is available at selected supermarkets and pharmacies.
What I like about it: Does not leave the skin feeling tight, cleanses skin well.
What I do not like about it: Very thick cream, makes it rather difficult to squeeze out of the tube.
