Kiss your chapped lips goodbye !

Hi my loves, hope youre all having a fabulous week! Today Im coming up with one of my favorite product for review – A Lip Balm. I feel it is a must have or a staple product that has to be in the purse.

We don’t need lipsticks all the time, a little lip balm to have a smooth & plump lips will do more than a dry, patchy, streaky shade of colors on the chapped lips. Don’t you agree ?

And thats what came into a box of surprise for me, for this Valentines Day 2018. Palmer’s surprised me with their all time favorite Lip balm and a box of candies making the perfect v-day gift !

Overall, I loved its packaging, its simple, neat, user friendly and also travel friendly.The lip balm stick is faint yellow in color. It has soft and creamy texture. In fact, I love the fragrance of the lip balm. The twist up mechanism works great, as the lip balm goes down slowly and completely.

My experience with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balm SPF 15.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balm SPF 15 glides smoothly so that   you don’t have to rub too much for even application. Also, it doesn’t feel waxy or too runny on the lips. The lip balm is lightweight and doesn’t apply glossy. 

Whilst talking about the Dark chocolate with cherry one, the flavor of this lip balm tastes exactly like a  cherry pop  to me! Seriously, it’s got that same candy-like cherry note mixed with chocolate, and it SMELLS just like a Cherry  Pop as well! Both the flavor and fragrance are strong during application but they fade pretty quickly.

And they layer a beautiful red-pink tint on the lips, which looks like a natural lip tint.

It instantly softens dry and rough lips and regular application heals the dry and chapped area on the lips. The moisturization  it provides is quite long lasting. Moreover, its a perfect  one  to be used for overnight. I apply this lip balm at night and in the morning, my lips feel soft and supple. In fact, the lip balm can be used as a lip primer  / a base to have a smooth application of lipstick.  It comes with SPF 15 which is an added bonus.

Direction for use

  • Use a water resistant sunscreen if you are out in the sun  or beach or swimming. 
  • Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure.
  • Then reapply at least every 2 hours.

“Overall, I am totally impressed with this Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Ultra Moisturizing Lip Balm SPF 15. It is a great lip balm that provides a boost of hydration and also long lasting .  It can heal dry & chapped lips  quickly, plus it also comes with sun protection, with SPF 15.  A very good lip balm at a very affordable price!

A perfect winter care with Palmer’s.

Hi ! my lovely people, hope you are all doing good. Now that the winters have officially begun, and yes, its time for winter care, an extra care that our skin needs during this time.

What do you do during winters ? A moisturizing cream or a oil or a gel ? Mine got sorted with Palmer’s . Do you want to know how , keep reading !

IMG_7332

These are my current winter favorites , featured here.

  • Palmer’s Cocoa butter formula Moisturizing Body oil.
  • Palmer’s Cocoa butter formula with vitamin E .

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing body oil :

IMG_7336

Key Ingredients : Vitamin E , Soybean , Sesame and safflower.

The product claims as a light oil specially formulated with pure cocoa butter and vitamin E to help soften , soothe rough and dry skin. This is a rich formula that gets absorbed into the skin easily.

Palmer’s cocoa Butter formula cream :

IMG_7341

Key Ingredients : Vitamin E.

The product claims as a rich and luxurious cocoa butter formula with original solid that provides deep hydration all over. This unique formula melts into the skin, creating a protective barrier that locks the moisture.

My take on the product : I have absolutely fallen in love with the oil more than the solid honestly. I have a extra dry skin on my feet which has been completely taken care of. Especially, during the winters they are even more drier, and the skin totally loses the hydration. But not any more, with this super quick absorbing oil.

Formulated with Vitamin E, one of the vital ingredient to have a soft smooth skin does exactly what is supposed to do. Sometimes, I would like to add 1-2 drops of this oil to the warm water and have my shower, or mostly I apply it to my damp skin, so that moisture is locked to my skin and they remain soft all day long.

The cocoa butter solid does contain vitamin E, and i love to keep this in my handbags, which means I can keep them even on the go. Did you hear it ? I said yes, even on the go.

IMG_7342

A simple plastic container that is completely filled with the cocoa butter solid is perfect for face, skin, lips and all also for the stretch marks. I have used the tummy butter during my pregnancy which gave me the best results, and I am sure with constant use this would definitely help with the marks .

IMG_7340

Both the cocoa butter range smells so yummy! Being a chocolate lover, I could hardly resist from eating them ( no joke :p ). Formulated without parabens and pththalates. 100% it relieves the rough and dry skin. Can be used both day and night , or as over might treatment.

The cocoa butter moisturizing body oil comes in a seal able, plastic bottle weighing 250 ml, and the cocoa butter solid comes in a 100 ml tub, both are quite sufficient in quantity for a few months use as a little bit goes a long way.

Will I Repurchase  ? Yes, definitely.

The price range is affordable, really inexpensive and are available at Boots Middle East, and few hypermarkets like Lulu , Al Manama , Megamart and other leading pharmacies. 

What’s your winter care ? do share with me !

My key to a Perfect Hair care with Palmer’s.

Hello everyone, hope you’re all having a fabulous day. Today, I am coming at you with two wonderful products, that work so good on your hair. If you have a healthy hair, its going to nourish your hair well and make them strong. If you have a color treated hair, its still going to work great on your chemically treated hair, as it has got some amazing components. Last, if you have a dry and frizzy hair like me, then its just a savior. 

Being a Brand Ambassador, Palmer’s sent me their new Olive oil formula collection. Kudos to Palmer’s for those two amazing products.

As you see in this picture, these are the two products that gave my hair a new life !

If you notice, Palmer’s came up with this range of products ,

  • With 100% Pure Jamaican Black Castor Oil ( JBCO) – Replenish moisture and nutrients. 
  • 100% Pure Olive Oil – Smoothes the frizzy hair
  • Vitamin E – Cleanses thoroughly
  • Moisture rich formula.
  • No sulfates.
  • No Parabens.
  • No Phthalates.
  • No Mineral Oil.
  • No gluten.

Sounds interesting right ? Lets have a look at each of these products individually.

PALMER’S OLIVE OIL SHAMPOO :

 For Unruly, Frizz- prone hair with Jamaican Black Castor oil, Vitamin E and Extra virgin olive oil smoothes out frizzy hair, replenishes moisture and nutrients, Removes the product build up. Makes the hair more softer with a smoother texture.

Palmers shampoo

The packaging is very simple and looks very nature inspired one with the Olive oil representation on the label. Since its plastic, always easy peasy to carry and also can easily be changed into smaller containers for the travel as well.

The shampoo is very runny in texture. . I found the scent pleasant although I don’t think it smells like olive or Jamaican black castor oil.  It also had enough slip for finger detangling and it was easy to pull out shed hair and de-tangle while shampooing. I was super impressed on how soft it left my hair after the first rinse. On the second rinse, my hair was clumping which is an indication for me that it is getting moisture! My hair felt smooth, I could see  my scalp was clean. My dry and tangled hair before shampooing were back to its moisturized detangled state! By the end of shampooing that day,  my hair felt so soft and clean without feeling stripped of its natural oils.

The shampoo didn’t fail the next time I used it. Same for detangling and it delivered the same moisture and softness to my hair.

 This  is a very good shampoo with pure oils that suit natural or color treated hair. I would say be careful with it as it’s very runny so it’s easy to waste it by pouring too much. Since,  400 ml of product is there which will last you a long time. The shampoo delivers on its promises and so far it’s one of my favorite products in the Palmer’s Olive Oil Formula collection!

Along with this shampoo, there comes the Leave -in conditioner.

leave in

Palmer’s Olive Oil Strengthening Leave In Conditioner is a leave-in conditioner that nourishes and repairs dry, frizzy hair. The lightweight spray helps control frizz, adds shine, reduces split ends, detangles and acts as a heat protectant from styling damage. The formula is enriched with Jamaican Black castor Oil,  extra virgin olive oil and vitamin E. It can be used on wet or dry hair to detangle and moisturize, leaving it more manageable. 

And I must say, its the best detangler and conditioner ever. A little goes a long way, in a better word I can say Its pure Magic  with a few sprays. The comb glides on my hair so easily after it is sprayed on my hair. My hair feels more smoother, softer and shinier.
I am extremely pleased with this product and I would definitely recommend for all types of hair. 

The shampoo and the leave-in conditioner retails for AED 32, at selected BOOTS PHARMACY. 

Before I say goodbye to you all, I just hear one question from my lovely readers.

Does this olive oil & Jamaican black castor oil infused product leave your hair oily ? Or does it get oily fast ?

This oil infused one, enriches the hair well and thus making the hair very soft. It doesn’t leave your hair oily at all, and you can trust me on this ! It gets all the oil out for fresh soft hair. 

Let me know what do you think, after using this product !
