Happy Friday Everyone-

I hope you’re having a lovely week and are gearing up for the weekend! If you follow along on my instagram/instagram story, you’ll see that I’ve been at my parent’s lake house. Today, I have a delightful blog post for all of you. I’m featuring a few of the products that I’ve introduced into my skin care regimen. From stunning packaging to an absolutely beautiful company, I present Palermo Body. I remember scrolling through my instagram and seeing Palermo pop up on my instagram instantly intrigued me. As a man who loves packaging, I wanted to dig deeper. I started looking through Palermo’s website and reading through the products and I started picking out things that I really enjoyed. I messaged Jessica, to learn more about her company and if she wanted to do a collaboration and here we are. Being an advocate for the betterment of people and all things, that does include taking care of one’s self and that includes skin care. I’m a HUGE advocate for taking care of your skin. It is the largest organ of the human body. Jessica is a purveyor of this and I would love to tell you more!

Here’s more about Jessica and the history of Palermo:

Say hello to Jessica.

The Founder of Palermo Body ︴

Palermo Body is a collection of truly natural skincare products formulated by our founder, Jessica Morelli. Each product is consciously formulated by choosing every ingredient with purpose, and mindfulness of its benefits to your skin and effect on the environment. Each product is made and packaged with attention and style in Brooklyn, New York.

The philosophy behind Palermo Body began with Jessica's Nonna Vincenza. She lived her entire life based on the foundation of natural holistic living while ingraining this value and tradition on Jessica. She taught Jessica the importance of cooking with the freshest ingredients, how to garden, and how to use natural remedies for bumps, burns and beauty.  

Years later, Jessica began creating products inspired by her Nonna; each product would be truly natural without exception. It only seemed fitting to tribute the business to her Nonna by naming it Palermo Body, after the city where her grandmother was born. 

Palermo Body is the culmination of all things Jessica lives and loves. From creating unique formulas, beautifully designed packaging, to being environmentally conscious of where ingredients are scoured. Palermo Body celebrates the vibrancy, color and purity in the life around us.

Jessica is originally a west coast native but has been living in New York City since 2010.  She began making her products in 2008 and knew she was on to something special.  A crafty hands-on person by nature, her interests range far and wide but at the center of it all is natural skin care.


When the package arrived in the mail a bit ago, I wanted to completely try everything out. I’ve been learning more about my skin and how it interacts with ingredients and I think these were the perfect way to start that adventure. Here are the descriptions of the three products that I’m featuring:

COFFEE BODY SCRUB - COFFEE + LEMON -

Caffeine firms and tightens skin’s elasticity as well as promoting the growth of collagen. Organic fair trade coffee + raw sugar polish your skin with gentle exfoliation while shea butter + coconut oil nourish skin leaving it feeling supple and moisturized.

Exfoliation is an essential part of maintaining healthy beautiful skin. The gentle abrasion removes dull skin and encourages circulation.

TO USE:

Massage scrub in circular motions into warm, damp skin until sugar begins to dissolve. Allow to remain on skin for a few moments for absorption. Rinse when desired.

VITALITY AROMATHERAPY OIL - (This product is my favorite)

Our Aromatherapy oils are harmoniously blended for solidarity of the senses and evoking nostalgia. 

Jasmine | Sandalwood | Cardamom

For spontaneity and inner-confidence. This romantic blend is enticing and intended to spark curiosity. Use this oil for a touch a spirit. 

TO USE:

Apply to pulse points, temples, and chest. Breathe in and enjoy!

GRAPEFRUIT + JUNIPER WITH ACTIVATED CHARCOAL SOAP -

Activated bamboo charcoal draws out oil and impurities while grapefruit + juniper detoxify and tone your skin. This bar is ideal for oily or blemish-prone skin and is gentle enough for daily use.

4 oz / 113 g Bar of detoxifying + toning soap

Thanks again to the Palermo team for sending over this goodie box and I can’t wait to continue indulging my skin with your products. If you would like to purchase some of these wonderful products for yourself check out their social media down below!
