Coconut oil is such an amazing product and a product that has received so much hype, well deserved hype at that, of late. I use coconut oil for near enough anything lately – oil pulling (swilling coconut oil around your mouth for between 5 and 15 minutes – it’s great for your teeth), cooking, as a mask for my hair and more recently as a moisturiser, thanks to Palmer’s. Is there anything that coconut oil isn’t good for? I think not. When Palmer’s released this range a few months back, I traveled to around four different Boots to try and track it down because I am impatient and I didn’t want to order it online. I ended up ordering it online anyway as I couldn’t find it on the shelves but now it’s everywhere. I can’t recommend it enough. This body lotion contains ethically and sustainably sourced coconut oil, Tahitian Monoi oil and Tiare Flower Petals – all raw ingredients that contain naturally occurring fatty acids and are high in proteins to help keep skin looking and feeling tip top. The ingredients combine together to make the most wonderful formula that absorbs in to the skin like a dream, helping to retain moisture, leaving the skin feeling soft, supple and absolutely incredible. I really do love the original Palmer’s Body Lotion but sometimes I feel that the scent can be a little bit too overpowering but the results are amazing, my skin absolutely loves the stuff. When Palmer’s released the coconut oil version (coconut being one of my favourite scents ever by the way), I instantly chucked the original formula to the back of the shelf and replaced it with this beauty. It is a winning formula that softens, soothes, comforts, hydrates and moisturises the skin – ahh, it’s bloody wonderful!
