REVIEW: Palmer’s Ultra Gentle Facial Cleansing Oil

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Ultra Gentle Facial Cleansing Oil

Price: £7.99

Stockists: Superdrug

Pros: A wonderful opportunity to put Palmer’s coca butter formula to work on your face and neck and décolleté. Their patented ingredients that do so much good for your body are now going to transform your face.

Cons: Unless you have an allergy to one of the ingredients which would mean it’s not for you then it has no cons in my eyes.

Conclusion: Oils have been around in cleansing for thousands of years and at last people are being less suspicious of the concept. Applying oil does not give you oily skin!

Palmer’s have been rocking the body lotion world for simply ages. Always there sitting quietly on the shelf not showing off or screaming ‘look at me’ with gimmicks and fancy packaging. Now they have added their cocoa butter to 8 pure oils and botanicals to produce a wash off foaming oil cleanser. A quick splash of water then pump (carefully) a small amount into your hand and smooth over and you can see your make up dissolving even before you add more water to create a silky smooth foam. As usual the scent is calming and comforting and the texture very pleasing. You need barely any so pump with caution – of course it’s not a disaster if you dispense too much you can just include your décolleté in the action and you should do this in any case but it’s not always practical. I suggest keeping this in the shower for the mornings. My skin was moisturised and soft and not a jot of oil in sight.

I am very keen on this product and will be a repeat customer. I love the packaging which is still true to their ideals but with a little lift and sassiness.


Yes! 5 stars
