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.

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.

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 .

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.

post

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 !

REVIEW : PALMER’S SHEA FORMULA MOISTURE REPAIR RAW SHEA SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER.

I often experience dull, dry, frizz and lackluster hair for days. I try to use different shampoo and conditioner along with the hair serums & styling products that gives some shine to my hair. But after trying a shampoo & conditioner, from the Shea range, it was a total game changer for me. Continue to read on how I revitalize my hair from boring to full of life again. 

 

shampoo & conditioner

Palmer’s Shea formula moisture repair raw Shea shampoo & conditioner :

The first thing that I noticed from the packaging is that both the products contain no sulfates , parabens or mineral oil.

Its common that most of the shampoos contain sulfates or otherwise called as Sodium Laurel sulfate , SLS. However sulfates are too effective and it can dry the scalp, and people like me having an existing dry hair issue, using these kind of shampoos worsen them.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH PALMER’S RAW SHEA MOISTURE SHAMPOO & CONDITIONER:

The raw Shea butter included in this range is sustain ably resourced in West Africa, and its well known for its rich and super moisturizing properties. And this shampoo helps to enhance the shine and replenish moisture. If your hair is colored, then absolutely you don’t have to worry, these babies got you covered.  I absolutely loved the smell of the duo, and it can be tolerable to the ones who feel its quite overwhelming. 

MAIN INGREDIENTS :

  • RAW SHEA BUTTER – It deeply moisturizes and repairs.
  • ARGAN OIL – It adds lot of shine.
  • GRAPE SEED OIL – Prevents dullness and protects the color on your hair.

UPON SHAMPOOING & CONDITIONING :

This shampoo gently cleanses my hair and it leaves my hair look well nourished. The shampoo is free from parabens , dyes and silicone and as it contains the raw Shea , it has helped me to tame my frizz hair. I also have a dry scalp, using this twice- thrice a week, it helps to get rid of that dryness giving them a hydration to the hair, and keep them moisturized. 

I prefer to leave the conditioner for about two minutes on the wet hair. This conditioner helps to remove the product build up, and the raw Shea, argan oil and grape seed oil helps to clean and leave my hair feeling refreshed. This conditioner doesn’t weigh down my hair, but is great for leaving hair feeling soft, smooth and restores moisture loss.

However the  shine is seen from using it twice a week.

STYLING : Styling is quite easy after using this. Once i blow dry, the hair becomes very soft and due to its texture, i feel that my hair looks very clean and blow drying or flat ironing or curling them are so easy! 

And above all, they both come in a large 473 ml bottles which will last you quite a while.

Here are few tips , to get that silky , clean hair while using a Sulfate free shampoo :

  1. Thoroughly wet your hair before applying sulfate free shampoo.
  2. Use less product than you think.
  3. Apply more water, instead of more product, the water will help activate the shampoo and spread it through your hair. 
  4. shampoo twice.
  5. Rinse your hair thoroughly.

WOULD I USE THEM AGAIN ?  Yes, definitely.

WHERE CAN I BUY THEM ? They are still not available in the UAE, soon this amazing product is going to hit all the stores. 

HOW MUCH ARE THEY PRICED AT ? Priced at $26, for the duo. And is currently available in the Amazon US and other US and UK stores. 

Being the brand ambassador, of Palmer’s  this product was sent to me for personal use and for the purpose of reviewing them , however all my opinions are honest , tried & tested !

Until then,

A chic Treat ! with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Foot Magic

Hi guys, hope you are all doing well ! As you read the heading, I have been a big fan of Palmer’s cocoa butter , especially claiming to be a Tummy Butter Mama. Right from my teens, I was quite intrigued by this brand, and I started using the tummy butter during my pregnancy time, I was completely dissolved into their mild soothing fragrance. 

As  you all know, now its the summer, and your skin is ever thirsty ! Especially, if you have dry feet like me, then you have to keep applying the cream every now and then to avoid getting dry and making them hydrated!

I like lotions and potions, but I was not disciplined enough to go through the moisturize and wear cotton socks routine every night, but after I got this Foot Magic , I started the routine and have been sticking to it for quite some days. Let me start my review by introducing the product.

WHAT DOES PALMER’S SAY ? An intensive balm that deeply moisturizes rough, dry skin and soothes tired feet. Pure Cocoa Butter, enriched with Vitamin E and other natural emollients, provides a deep penetrating treatment for the feet. This unique formulation moisturizes, softens and smooths even the roughest, driest skin. 

LET’S HAVE A LOOK AT THE INGREDIENTS : 

  • COCOA BUTTER: Cocoa Butter addresses skin concerns such as roughness, loss of elasticity, scars and dryness. Cocoa Butter is an all natural skin conditioning plant extract loaded with essential fatty acids. It softens and protects by diminishing water loss – keeping skin hydrated and supple.
  • VITAMIN e : Vitamin E is contained in all Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula products and is absolutely essential for the face. This top antioxidant diminishes the appearance of lines, wrinkles and scars by keeping skin cells hydrated.

Apart from cocoa butter it also contains Mango Seed Butter , Shea Butter , Peppermint Oil and Eucalyptus Oil.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE  : 

  • Apply to rough, dry, calloused  feet daily to achieve and maintain soft , supple skin.
  • Especially effective when applied to feet at night then covered with cotton socks.

MY TAKE ON THIS PRODUCT :

This is a foot cream which claims to transform dry, rough and calloused feet. Now don’t worry I’m not going to show you them but my feet aren’t in the best condition. I’ve been thinking to get a pedicure for ages but haven’t gotten around to it so I was delighted to use  this cream as my feet badly need it for this dry summers.

Because it’s a Palmer’s Cocoa Butter product I immediately expected it to have that chocolate smell but when I opened it I just got the smell of a  refreshing peppermint. The product contains Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E, Mango Butter and Peppermint Oil. I also expected this to have a creamy consistency but it’s more of an thick ointment texture which I really like. I’ve used this before bed for a few days now and I can definitely notice my feet are softer. The peppermint also gives a lovely cooling tingle to the feet which is great for summer.

MY FINAL VERDICT : Even with just four   days of use, I saw an improvement and  my feet have become well moisturized and the dry patches have disappeared. The best thing about this balm is that you can forget to use it or skip using it on alternate days, but the effect does not wear off. This is what suits me very well. My feet have become softer and smoother.

AVAILABILITY : Palmer’s brand is available at most of the Super markets, hypermarkets like Lulu Hypermarkets, Carrefour UAE , Spinneys , Megamart , Geant , and also few of the leading pharmacies like Boots Middle East . 

Finally, as the Brand Ambassador for Palmer’s Middle East , I hope to be bringing to your attention more of their skin and hair care products, and if you would like to find out more about what they have , simply head over to their website. For regular updates, you can also find them on Facebook , Instagram, and Twitter.
