When it comes to what we put on our faces, we’ll buy the latest anti-aging cream that promises to work miracles on those nasty crow’s feet, and tend to spend far too much time dutifully performing each of the four to five steps in our skin care regimens. As for tending to the rest of our skin, we couldn’t care less.
So when we run out of lotion, we swing by our local store and pick up whatever’s on sale. Dermatologists say this is a dumb move. That’s because just like the products you use on your face, your body lotion should cater to your skin type. So if you’re extra dry or tend to break out, have oily skin or live in a super-dry climate, you’d ideally use a lotion designed specifically to deal with what your skin needs.
People have the brand Palmer’s in their homes since they could remember it. It has been passed on from one generation to another. It could only be attributed to the proven benefits of the variety of product Palmer’s has. Mothers start taking care of their kids’ skin especially girls with Palmer’s body lotions due to their rich ingredients and smoothening and softening qualities. People believe that Palmer’s products have helped them a lot to keep their skin looking great always.
Palmer’s has a range of body lotions. It is a misconception that Palmer’s only caters to pregnant women and stretch marks. It may be beneficial to preggers, but their products are for all, regardless of the age or sex. They sent me a gift set of miniatures of their best body lotions. I will be reviewing them in this blog post to help you decide which one is the best for you.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E
The lotion is pale yellow in color. It has a soft smooth melted-butter like texture that feels very fluffy and light weight. It easily gets absorbed into the skin. It feels light and non-sticky. If you are a cocoa lover you will love the fragrance. It does not contain parabens and phthalates. It smooths marks and clears skin tone. It makes skin feel soft and look healthy. Although it says 24 hour moisture but it keeps the skin moisturized for 5-6 hours. It is ideal for people with chronic dry skin, sensitive skin and also eczema sufferers.
Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula with Vitamin E
A rich, creamy body lotion containing certified organic extra virgin olive oil and vitamin E for the highest concentration of antioxidants to fight ageing free radicals. It is not as thick as cocoa butter formula and it is white in color. Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula Lotion soothes dry skin, leaving it looking and feeling youthful. I found that this moisturiser was just as good as the original cocoa butter however the scent wasn’t as addictive. But I still love its calming scent. It has a thick creamy consistency and absorbs fairly quickly. It is great for dry or cracked skin.
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula with Vitamin E
I’ve become a little obsessed with trying coconut products and was very excited to try this one. It has a strong coconut scent which I simply love and this isn’t watery and thin like some moisturizers. It is white in color and not as thick as the cocoa butter formula or even the olive oil formula.. Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula with Vitamin E Body Lotion is a body lotion that works to deeply moisturize and hydrate the body. The formula features organic coconut oil, vitamin E, sweet almond oil, coconut water, coconut milk, macadamia nut oil, shea butter and cocoa butter. It is lightly scented with coconut and monoi. It is free from parabens, phthalates, mineral oil, gluten, sulfates or dyes.
Palmer’s Shea Formula with Vitamin E
Palmer’s Shea Butter Moisturizing Body Lotion is a rich body lotion formulated with ethically and sustainably sourced raw African shea butter, which can help act as a natural sunscreen, helps assist cell regeneration, helps heal small wounds, scars dermatitis and cracked skin, helps repair signs of skin ageing, keeps skin soft, and is enriched with vitamins to promote healthy skin. The formula also contains African marula oil which is rich in omega 6 and 9 fatty acids and helps reduce redness while nourishing, healing and moisturising the skin as well as improving its elasticity. It contains four times as much vitamin C as an orange, and is rich in vitamin E, to improve skin radiance.
Although I love to use a different smelling moisturizing body lotion everyday as variety is the spice of life but if you ask me to pick my favourite out of the four then I would go with the classic which is the cocoa butter formula. It is a classic for a reason. Because so many people love it for its rich texture and its soothing scent. I have actually reviewed the products in the order of my liking. From most favourite to the least favourite.
