Palmer's Cleanser & Makeup Remover Review

Back at it again with another Palmer's face wash review. Yes oh yes! If you missed it, last time I reviewed Palmer's Skin Success Eventone Facial Milk cleanser (read here) — one of my favorite facial cleansers ever! This time around I opted for something creamy rather than foamy from the Palmer's range. Let's see how it held up.


The Packaging

The packaging states it's a cleanser & makeup remover that gently removes oil, impurities, & makeup. It says it's a lightly foaming formula that rinses cleanly. Technically its full name is Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Cleanser & Makeup Remover, but who has time for that? It comes in an easy-to-use squeeze bottle.


The Formula

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Cleanser & Makeup Remover is incredibly rich & creamy. The cleanser looks somewhat like a lotion due to its lushness. I didn't find that it foamed up, but it lathered slightly.


The Effectiveness

Although it cleansed my face, it was not effective in fully taking off my mascara. I'd often have to wash it twice to remove it. However, my face was clean & washed without feeling stripped. If you have some intense makeup going on, start off with micellar water then work your way to this cleanser.


The Ingredients

This includes ethically sourced cocoa butter from the cacao tree. It's loaded with vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, C, & E, as well as flavonoids & shea butter. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula recognizes the importance of supporting sustainable farming practices, & that's something I can get behind.


The Price

You can't go wrong with the price. For around $10, Palmer's Cleanser & Makeup Remover is affordable & conveniently available online or in most drugstores. You don't need much product due to the creaminess, so a little goes a long way.

Although I still prefer the Palmer's Skin Success Eventone Facial Milk cleanser, this creamy face wash held its own. I don't find that it was as effective as the packaging claimed, but it worked well & would be a great option if you want a budget facial cleanser.

How does Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Cleanser & Makeup Remover sound to you? What face wash are you loving right now? :]

    It sounds really nice but it's a shame that it doesn't take mascara off properly. I never tried this cleanser but It's nice to know more about it! :D Thanks for sharing, Carmen!

  2. I have very sensitive skin and find that I need to exfoliate everyday to keep blemishes away. Unfortunately for my skincare routine (but better for the environment), St. Ives, which is what I use, will no longer be making their microbead facial cleanser so I will be in the market for a new one! Palmer's is a great brand and I wouldn't have thought to try out their cleanser so I may have to now!

  3. Sounds like a wonderful product lovely! I love palmers products, their body lotions are amazing. I've never tried this cleanser before, but it does sound lovely and nourishing. Definitely a shame about the makeup removal, but I do find that happens with so many cleansers, it's so annoying! Great review lovely! Xx

  7. It sounds so good with the ingredients, but annoying with the mascara though! Yet to find a product that makes it all go away at once! Xx

  8. I'm serious when it comes to cleansing so I also like to use a micellar water before I go in with a proper makeup remover. This one sounds like it works great :)

  15. I always have a hard time removing heavy eye makeup and mascara too, but my dermalogica face cleanser seems to do the trick! I"ll have to try out this one though, it sounds really moisturizing and gentle! Thanks for the review :D

  16. I love Palmers! I had no idea they came out with a makeup remover. It is a shame it doesn't work with mascara, but I love how it doesn't make you feel dry!

  19. This sounds so much better than your average cream cleanser, a lot I found didn't do much but smell chemically. Will have to try their skincare, probably their milk cleanser moreso xx

  20. That's an easy fix with some micellar water. :]

  21. I love using their apricot scrub. It uses natural exfoliants! :]

  22. Yes, this cleanser was so creamy. :]

  23. You're so right! Mascara can be pretty difficult to get off no matter which cleanser. :]

    ReplyDelete
  24. Micellar water is the way to go! Works every time. Still looking for a cleanser to get it all off though; we'll see. :]

  25. Cocoa butter scent is not my favorite, so the smell wasn't up my alley. :]

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeah, I've tried a couple cleansers & loved them. :]

    ReplyDelete
  27. This one is seriously milky! I prefer their foaming one, but it may be too stripping for some skin types. :]

    ReplyDelete
  28. Minus the mascara, overall it worked great. :]

  29. Palmer's has such a wide range! :]
