Di Palomo Products: First Impressions

Hi there Sweethearts. Today's post is one that I am really excited about and as I go on you will see why. In my September Beauty Box from feelunique.com I received a product from Di Palomo. This is a company I have never heard of before, but the point of these beauty boxes is to try out new products so that I can discover new companies, which is exciting to me. Here is a link to the post of this Beauty Box and the Wild Fig & Grape Enriching Hand & Nail Cream from Di Palomo, Link :)

As you can probably tell from my review I fell in love with this product instantly. It truly is my most favourite hand & nail cream to date. The smell alone has me captivated. Anyway after seeing my review Di Palomo contacted me to see if I would be interested in reviewing further products for them. I was so excited and went straight onto their website to see if I would find things that I would actually use as I didn't want to waste their time and I want to try products that appeal to me, not just so I can get free products. I passed my details on saying I would be happy to review more products, but I was astonished at the amount of things that I received. Take a look below.






I thought it would be nice to start with their Wild Fig & Grape range as this range is where my initial Hand & Nail Cream came from. Left to Right: Luxurious Cleansing Bar, Enriching Hand & Nail Cream & Sumptuous Hand & Body Lotion.


Luxurious Cleansing Bar

Hand made vegetable soap especially formulated for healthy & beautiful skin. Fig & Grape are rich in antioxidants, which help maintain a healthy skin tone.

Ingredients
 
Natural ingredients:

Shea Butter
Fig (Fruit) Extract
Grape (Seed) Extract

This retails at £8.00 for 275g. 


I do not use soap at all, but I will definitely give this a try as I love the scent. The bar itself is engraved with the Di Palomo signature which is a nice touch. I think this bar will last a long time so for £8.00 I think that's pretty good value. It will be interesting to see if this changes my mind about soap as it's not something I would ever choose to buy. I would like to know if this is safe to use on the face as I think I may use it more for that. If anyone knows the answer please tell me :)

I love the little autumn leaf tied around the top. It adds to the whole theme of this range. This has the same consistency as the Enriching Hand & Nail Cream. I like the fact that I now have a product of the same scent to apply all over my body too. I like the pump design. I much prefer this to squeezing product from a tube.

Overall I really like the smell of this Wild Fig & Grape range. I think it's a nice choice for heading into Autumn/Winter. The packaging of these products adds to that autumnal feel. The terracotta packaging makes me think of something warm, natural and herbal.

Other products that I want to try in this range are the Bath & Shower Gel, the Bath Syrup, the Body Butter, the Dry Oil, the Eau De Parfum and the Fragrant Candle (Wooden Bowl).

Moisturising Bath & Shower Cream

This has a very subtle scent to it. Very fresh, yet soft. The product itself is a milky, creamy consistency.

Hand & Body Lotion

This has the same consistency as the Wild Fig & Grape Sumptuous Hand & Body Lotion. It's smooth and sinks into the skin straight away.

Enriching Hand & Nail Cream

Again this has the same consistency as the other creams and lotions so far and sinks into the skin just as well.

I think this set would be great for travelling. I do not travel really, but I do stay at my boyfriend's house a lot so it's perfect for that. It also gives me the oppotrunity to try products in smaller sizes to see if I like them.

Again I love the touch of the leaf added to the bottle and the fact that it has a pump. This is the larger version of the one that came in the Bath & Body Treat set.

This product really surprised me as I expected this to be a lot more loose like a thick lotion consistency, but it feels more like a creamy wax. When applied to the skin it feels very creamy and sinks in beautifully. It really is instantly absorbed as it says on the website. I think this product will take ages to use beacause you don't end up using more than you need to. A great value product I think.

My thoughts on this White Grape With Aloe range are that it is pleasent and fresh. I would reccomend this range to someone who prefers a subtle scent. It is not at all overpowering. The packaging gives this vibe I think as it has a very clean appearance.

Other products that I would like to try from this range are the Bath Elixir, the Dry Oil, the Eau De Parfum and the Fragrant Candle (Glass Vase/Glass).






These products are from the Orange Blossom with Wild Honey & Olive range. Left to Right: Irresistible Eau De Parfum & Bath & Body Treat.


Irresistible Eau De Parfum

A soft, sweet fragrance, inspired by an early evening walk through orange & olive groves above the Bay of Naples. Top notes of, bergamot, mandarin & orange blossom lead to middle notes of jasmine, honey & geranium, resting on a base of sandalwood, olive, amber & musk.

Ingredients

Alcohol Denat, Aqua (Water), Parfum, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Benzyl Salicylate, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hydroxycitronellal, Linalool, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Geraniol, Citronellol, Citral.

This retails at £22.00 for 50ml.


First off let me say yet again that I love the fact that they have added a little flower to the bottle. It's the little touches that please me as much as the overall feel and look of a range as it makes me feel like they have put thought and effort in. I would describe this as a light/medium perfume in terms of strength. I think you could wear this for day and evening. Great for going out straight from work. This is both musky and sweet as it describes and I can definitely smell the mandarin and orange notes. I think that this would suit a lot of tastes as it is a kind of in between perfume. Not to strong, yet not so subtle that you don't notice it. Someone added a review on the website saying that the scent holds longer when used with the Dry Oil.

Moisturising Body Wash

Now that I am smelling this product I can really smell the honey too. This has the same consistency as the previous Body Wash. I really like this scent.

Hand & Body Lotion

This has the same consistency and works in the same way as the previous Hand & Body Lotion.

Enriching Hand & Nail Cream

Beautiful consistency and works in the same way as the previous Hand & Nail Cream.






This product is also from the Orange Blossom with Wild Honey & Olive range, but I did not realise this at first because the blue shade of the packaging is on the inside with the outside being white. This is the Dry Oil.
 

This unique blend of luxurious oils blended with vitamin E and extracts of orange blossom & honey is instantly absorbed into your skin. Dry Oil can also be used on your hair as an intensive leave-in conditioner.

Ingredients

Natural ingredients:

Grape Seed Oil
Olive Oil
Sunflower Seed Oil
Orange Blossom Extract
Honey Extract

Full ingredient list:

Cyclopentasiloxane, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Parfum (Fragrance), Diisopropyl Adipate, Octyldodecanol, Isopropyl Myristate, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Mel (Honey) Extract, Bht, Hexyl Cinnamal, Limonene, Benzyl Salicylate, Butylphenyl Methylpropional, Hydroxycitronellal, Linalool, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Geraniol, Citronellol, Citral.

This retails at £15.00 for 50ml.


Dry Oil

You already know by now that I love the wee flower on the bottle :) This is the product that someone suggested on the website to apply with the Orange Blossom with Wild Honey & Olive Irresistible Eau De Parfum to make it last longer. I just applied this to my skin and it sank in straight away just like the creams and lotions. That really impresses me as I absoloutely hate greasy, oily products that take ages to sink into my skin. The fact that it doubles up as a leave in conditioner is great. I don't think you would mind leaving this in your hair as if doesn't feel slick on your skin I can't imagine it making your hair greasy as it is so light-weight. It literally sank into my skin in 2 seconds. This product is something that I would definitely buy.

The packagaing of this range has a slightly oriental and pretty appearance. It's my favourite packaging of these three ranges. I really am loving this scent. I would say it is quite a sexy aroma. Again I think that the Bath & Body Treat set is great for a traveller or someone wanting to test products out before purchasing the full sizes.

Other products I would like to try in this range are the Bath Nectar Glass Decanter, the Body Butter, the Eau De Parfum and the Fragrant Candle (Glass Vase).


There is also a Spa range on the website, but I do not have any products from that, sorry. I would like to try though the Bamboo & Sisal Back Exfoliator, the Bamboo Face Cloth & the Bamboo Foot File.


Damn I smell good after testing out all of these products while writing this post, haa haa. I am so happy that I have had the opportunity to try all of these products thanks to Di Palomo. I have fallen in love with all of them so far, but I will update you on my thoughts after using them for some time. 


Pros for me:

  • Appealing packaging
  • Great scents
  • Great consistency/texture of products
  • Extra touches with the flowers/leaves added :)
  • Travel/smaller size options
  • Variety of ranges
  • Great prices

Cons for me:

  • The White Grape With Aloe range and the Orange Blossom with Wild Honey & Olive range varying slightly in packaging, but only slightly. I would have preferred them to be consistent like the Wild Fig & Grape range as it's easier to identify that products are from the same range.


I would like to clarify that all products in this post were sent to me for review purposes. This is with the exception of the intial product that came in my September feelunique.com Beauty Box which I purchased myself. My opinions I assure you are still my own.


Please check out these links to both feelunique.com for details of the Beauty Box and dipalomo.com to view these products and more.


Have you tried Di Palomo products before? What are your thoughts on them? Do you have any likes/dislikes and why?


Love to you all
