I’ve joined the coconut revolution with Palmer’s (giveaway time)


Walk into any drugstore or superstore like Target and Walmart and you’ll be sure to see this logo. Palmer’s has been around helping us out for years. But they aren’t the same old Palmer’s of your youth. They are new and improved and keeping up with the times.

My blog partner Lisa is a coco-NUT. Anything that has the scent of coconut is something she’ll try so I had to sneak today’s products by her so that I could see what the fuss was all about. And now I do. Palmer’s has created two great Coconut Oil Formula products that I’m the one getting nutty about.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm

Cleansing Balms are a great alternative to regular cleansers since they are so gentle on your skin. This one by Palmer’s uses their Coconut Oil Formula which uses only ethically and sustainably sourced Coconut Oil and Tahitian Monoi Oil that’s been infused with Tiare flower petals. Sounds fancy doesn’t it? But this is just $8 and will last for so long.

Upon opening you’ll find a slightly solid texture that you use on dry skin. Work it onto your face with just a small amount of warm water and it will transform into a rich and creamy texture to gently remove everything from the day from dirt and impurities to  makeup. It feels wonderful while on and you’ll enjoy massaging this in. I use warm water and a wash cloth (usually a flannel cloth from The Body Shop) to remove this.

So why this cleansing balm as compared to some of the more expensive ones?

  • No Phthalates
  • No Parabens
  • No Mineral Oil
  • No Gluten
  • No Sulfates
  • No Dyes
  • Natural Coconut Oil & Monoi

Not only is this effective but the smell is intoxicating! My skin doesn’t feel stripped and this adds just the right touch of hydration especially as the weather is flip flopping around.


Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask

As a certified (or is it certifiable?) mask lover I am totally impressed with the Hydrating Facial Mask from Palmer’s. The first time I used it I was bowled over by it. This is one of the gentlest masks I’ve ever used and it’s definitely the least messy mask I’ve used. I can’t rave about this enough and for sure I’ll stop at Walmart to pick this up when I’m done with this tube.

It shows up as a pure white on my skin so my pictures wouldn’t show you anything. This Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask feels so light on yet when I wash it off my face my skin is totally replenished and feels soft for days. It only takes 10 minutes to use and then I massage it onto my skin before rinsing. While it makes no promises to reduce pores and make me look 10 years younger, it does tighten up my pores and makes my skin look its best. I can use this as many times a week as I want because it’s as gentle as a lamb.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask

It’s made with pure coconut water along with a rich blend of natural oils (Coconut Oil, Monoi Oil, and Sweet Almond Oil).

  • No parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, sulfates and dyes
  • No gluten
  • Made with natural coconut oil and monoi
  • Formulated with ethically and sustainably sourced ingredients
  • With raw coconut sugar
  • Made with natural vitamin E

I’m flipping over Palmer’s FlipBalm

Palmer's FlipBalms

Palmer’s FlipBalms

Three of the cutest products came my way from Palmer’s and I can’t get enough of these. These are a ball of fun this summer. palmers flip balmThis is a new debut for Palmer’s and they use their patented Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E but in the most luscious flavors/scents. There are just these three flavors but I hope they are successful enough to create some fall and winter FlipBalms.

Each of the FlipBalms contains something special – Juicy Watermelon (my favorite) contains watermelon extract, Creamy Coconut contains coconut oil, and Ripe Mango contains mango extract. They smell so true to the real product that it’s like having a fruit salad at your service.

These are just too cute for words but they are also effective as a wonderful lip balm. They are very moisturizing and last for a great amount of time. They flip open and then lock into place so they are easy to apply. They say they are a one handed flip design but as an oldie I need two hands.

When I started using these I kept thinking of all the ways I’d love to gift these $3.50 balms. My kids used to go to a sleepaway camp for 3 weeks in the summer and these would be perfect to send in camp goodie mailer. The kids aren’t allowed to receive food there anymore but these would be close to food, at least with their sniffers. I also envision putting one in a child’s backpack for going back to school. What a fun surprise for them to open their backpack and find one in there. Another reason I hope these become available in more cold weather flavors is for their stockings hung by the chimney with care.

These can be found at mass retailers, drugstores and grocery stores. MSRP is $3.50 so avoid Amazon with their inflated price. Target has these for $2.99. No Parabens – No Phthalates – No Petrolatum – No Gluten.

As Palmer’s says “Flip, Click, Smooth”. Good advice!
