As the word says, this foundation gives you the right amount of coverage, for the perfect InstaSelfies, and they are designed for everyday life.

  • SEPHORA COLLECTION CREAM LIP STAIN : When you combine the perfect color, of this lip stain with its long lasting staying power, its hard to beat the price point. I would prefer this even for chapped lips, as they do not settle into fine lines. Thanks to the stain hydrating ingredients, Vitamin E and avocado oil, it moisturizes well.

  • SEPHORA MICRO SMOOTH BAKED POWDER : This one is one of my favorite powder , when it comes to setting the makeup. In a nutshell, the finish is natural, the texture is lovely and you get a lot of product. It will need extra concealing, but looks great on top of foundation as well as worn on its own. And will feel light weight through out the summer heat.

Holds the curl well, adds length , stays put for 6-7 hours and they come off easily with an eye makeup remover, hassle free ! This golden one is a limited edition one, and yes, they are absolutely waterproof!

  • SEPHORA SMOOTHING PRIMER : An amazing primer, which has a soft, transparent gel consistency. when applied to the skin adsorbs super quick and doesn’t feel sticky. It feels very light and smooth. On the skin, it transforms into a gorgeous , silky finish which makes your skin feel super smooth, and velvety, creating an excellent base for makeup to slide on, holding it in place all day, by minimizing the pores as well.

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.

  • 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.
