When it comes to my skincare routine, I normally like to stick to the same products – ones I’ve tried, tested and ones that I know work with my skin type. However, I sometimes come across a gem that blows my mind and I instantly know that I just have to include into my skincare regime – and share it on the blog, on course!
A couple of months ago, I received the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Exfoliating Facial Scrub in a Latest in Beauty Box. I must admit, I don’t regularly use facial scrubs as most of them tend to leave my face feeling dry and tight. However, I knew that from using other products from the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter range, this one should be moisturiisng and I was curious to give this one a go.
After having a closer look at the product, I discovered that it’s actually packed with nourishing ingredients such as Cocoa Butter (of course!), and Evening Primrose Oil – 2 ingredients that I love in my skincare products. It also contains cocoa powder and finely crushed walnut shell to gently buff away any dead skin cells and help reveal smooth, glowing skin.
One thing I really love about the product is the scent – it smells exactly like a malty chocolate milkshake. Apart from that, the exfoliating particles are really fine so it feels really gentle when massaged onto the skin, and there’s no dry and tight feeling on my skin after using this. It leaves my skin feeling super soft and looking radiant. I love following this with a hydrating mist such as the First Aid Beauty Vitamin Hydrating Mist or a light moisturiser like the L’Oreal Hydra Genius Aloe Water.
