Palmers kindly gifted the Palmers Coconut Oil Hand Cream to me, and it’s one of those products where I can’t remember if I’ve tried it before. As a blogger, I’m always trying new products and it’s sometimes difficult to remember which products you’ve tried. I’m sure I’m not the only blogger that utilises their search box on their blog, to see if they’ve reviewed the product before and I can’t see that I’ve featured the Palmers Coconut Oil Hand Cream on my blog before, so I guess I can’t have tried it.
Palmers Coconut Oil Hand Cream
“Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula products contain ethically and sustainably sourced Coconut Oil and Tahitian Monoï Oil, infused with Tiaré flower petals. These raw, natural ingredients deliver luxuriously rich moisturisation for decadently pampered skin. Palmer’s Coconut Oil Hand Cream envelopes hands in a glove-like protective barrier, that locks in moisture and softens skin’s texture.“
The Palmers Coconut Oil Hand Cream is £2.49 for 60g which is very affordable, and the hand cream is packaged within a plastic tube. The cream has a very thick consistency, and is one of the thickest hand creams I’ve tried. It has almost a body butter consistency, which takes a little while to massage into the hands and even longer to absorb. It’s so rich, it’s not the kind of hand cream you can apply then straight away use a touchscreen device, as your hands feel quite tacky for some time after applying it.
In terms of scent, the hand cream has a very strong coconut scent. If you don’t like heavily scented hand cream, you won’t like the Palmers Coconut Oil Hand Cream as it’s very heavily scented. It makes the whole room smell of coconut, and it’s that strong it gets comments from anyone else that enters the room so it’s probably not ideal if you work in an office environment or within a small space, as everyone around you will smell the hand cream for upto an hour – it really is that heavily scented.
The scent lingers on the skin for hours too. I love coconut scents so it doesn’t bother me, but I had to mention it as it’s remarkably strongly scented. The formula is very thick, but it doesn’t offer as much hydration as I would have liked. It makes my hands feel soft, but within a couple of hours I feel the need to reapply as my hands are dry again and I don’t see the point in a hand cream that needs to be reapplied throughout the day. Instead, I’ve been using the Palmers Coconut Oil Hand Cream as a foot cream at night before applying socks to try to hydrate my feet and it works a lot better for that use.
