I’ve completely fallen in love with Goe Oil by Jao Brand. It’s a 100% natural semi-solid all over body oil that turns to a liquid when slightly warmed between your hands, it smells gorgeous as it is lightly scented with Monoi Tiare from Tahiti.

What’s in it? It contains 28 plant, fruit, flower oils & butters as follows…

Jojoba Butter, Sunflower Oil, Jojoba Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Avocado Butter, Grape Seed Butter, Grape Seed Oil, Cocoa Butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Rose Hip Oil, Soy Lecithin, Pumpkin Seed Butter, Mango Butter, Cupuacu Butter, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Hemp Seed Oil, Kukuinut Oil, Chamomile Oil, Beeswax, Calendula Oil, Essential Oils, Tocopherol, Vitamin E, Acetate, Rosemary Extra

It’s a multi-tasking product you can use from head to toe, their tagline on their packaging is “HANDS. HAIR. BODY & SOUL” which couldn’t be more true.

Verdict It keeps my skin soft and hydrated all day and is also great for spot applying on dry patches. Some use it as an intensive hair mask which I think will suit very course/curly or frizzy hair which soaks up moisture like a sponge. I tend to use a very tiny amount on dry hair to tame my fly-aways.

Summary I love this product and already have my second tube ready to go. It costs £35 so it’s not cheap however well worth every penny and a very little goes a long long way, you can buy your here

A customer I recommended it to at work came back two weeks later to personally thank me as she had received so many compliments on the overall look of her skin and being asked “what are you wearing” due to the soft scent. She also has long luscious ringlet naturally curly hair and this has defined her curls making her hair look healthier and shiny. This feedback made my day!

Jao Brand have been kind enough to send me their lip-balm and skin cream to try out what a lucky girl I am! keep posted for my review of them soon.

Thank you for reading, let me know if you’ve tried this oil or any similar as I’d love to hear from you.

Butter me up!

A good all round Body Butter, a bit if an old classic that really works. Palmers Cocoa Butter Formular has been around since the middle of the 19th century but under its current ownership since 1971, we all seem to have memories of this cocoa Formular mainly down to it’s rich cocoa smell.

20130707-145707.jpg This concentrated Formular derived from the cocoa bean also contains Vitamin E.

20130707-145950.jpg The cream is satisfyingly thick and creamy with a rich chocolatey aroma you either Love or hate.

20130707-150214.jpg It’s easily applied and obsorbes really well with no sticky residue. Even though the level of moisture is high the finish is matt (there are glossy versions available) personally I love the smell and do not find it over powering, more comforting. If you dislike the smell Palmers have a fragrance free version and also a line of olive oil based products, a coconut oil line and a Shea butter line.

20130707-151025.jpg This handy 60g tube is great on the go in your handbag and it’s a really good after sun moisturiser, or perfect in winter for dry elbows/knees.

20130707-151325.jpg All in all I do like a bit of Palmers Cocoa Butter from time to time but have to say if I was to use it daily I fear I would get sick of the smell. I use it occasionally or use it on my knees elbows ankles and between my fingers before I apply a gradual tanning product.

Palmers have a very wide range of skin care from basic moisturisation to glistening glosses to gradual tans, and it doesn’t stop there they have a whole facial skin care range too.

Palmers are also PARABEN FREE and against Animal Testing.
