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

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.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm

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.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Cleansing Balm

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

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.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hydrating Facial Mask

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

Not only am I happy that I’m now part of the coconut family but two of you will be able to win these products thanks to Palmer’s.  —  Marcia

MARCIA’S trio of wonders:

Bye Bye Pores Blush, Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush, and Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder

Bye Bye Pores Blush, Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush, and Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder

I’ve chosen to tell you about the powders and brush that are in this TSV since I’m incredibly impressed with these. I purchased Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder shortly after it was released (review) and it’s a pleasure to have a new one especially with the brush that I’m going to be gushing about. This translucent powder gives an airbrushed finish when I swirl a brush over it to lightly finish my skin and set my makeup. It’s a wonderful powder to use with the new Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination in this kit.

Bye Bye Pores Airbrush Brightening Blush in Naturally Pretty is a dream color for me. In the compact it looks like a coral with a touch of pink but when applied it’s a beautiful salmon – pinky peach shade. This is highly pigmented so don’t go overboard. It blends perfectly. It’s buildable for those of you that need more pigmentation but for me it’s a perfect shade.

I love that the Bye Bye Pores Pressed Powder will blur my imperfections and the new Heavenly Skin Bye Bye Pores Powder Brush makes it even better. If you’ve ever experienced IT’s brushes then you know how wonderful they are. This powder brush though is the softest and most luxurious brush ever. If you are a brush fanatic like I am, you need this set even if it’s just for the brush. All I can say is OMG. I want to sleep with it. Even though I just want to brush this over my skin it’s so effective that I’ve given in to use it with the powder.

Three perfect products but there’s more with LISA’S Dynamic Duo:

IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Makeup and Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination

I’ve always felt that if I have a great cleanser and a great concealer, I am pretty much set. Two of the new products in the #ItsYourByeBye Collection are in that ‘great’ category – in fact, they’re so awesome I think they are worth the collection price all by themselves.

The Bye Bye Makeup™ 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm is a unique take on a cleanser. It’s not a cream, it’s a solid that melts immediately with body temperature, and it’s applied to dry skin like cleansing oil. I was initially very conservative with it, just sliding my fingers across the top and then smoothing it on, but I finally realized that it was ok to ‘dig in’ and get a chunk. The cleanser has a nice, light citrus scent that is very pleasant and doesn’t hang around long.

First and foremost, the 3-in-1 Makeup Melting Cleansing Balm definitely cleanses! It takes off all makeup, including eye makeup, without the need for a separate makeup remover. Second, it is one heck of a moisturizer, leaving skin not only cleansed but also crazy soft and hydrated. The 3 in the 3-in-1?  It’s also an anti-aging skin serum. Normally, I think that any sort of treatment is wasted in a cleanser – after all, it’s getting washed off and going down the sink, right? But this one is activated as soon as it touches your skin, and it actually creates a sort of barrier keeping moisture in while also giving skin a glowy radiance. I have nothing but raves for this excellent paraben- and sulfate-free cleanser.

The second of my dynamic duo is the new Bye Bye Under Eye Illumination™ Full Coverage Anti-Aging Concealer. I am a long-time fan of the original Bye Bye Under Eye™, and this new version is the classic formula along with IT Cosmetic’s Drops of Light Technology™. It combines everything I love about the classic concealer – long wear, full coverage, skin-loving ingredients – along with a luminescence that helps it conceal blue and red areas to perfection.
I have the Medium shade swatched above. I used the tiniest bit of concealer – just a dot goes an incredibly long way. I find the best way to use this is to spread the concealer on the back of my hand as my body temperature helps to warm up the concealer so it spreads easily. Then I dot it on under my eyes and around my nose, continuing to gently pat to blend it in.
 .
Between Marcia’s trio of wonders and Lisa’s dynamic duo, the #ItsYourByeBye Collection is one quality quintet of products!  Today, Friday March 25th, is the only day for this awesome set at the incredible $59.96 TSV price. What are you waiting for? Head over to QVC now before it sells out!!
