Palmer’s Cocoa Butter (new additions!)

The fans of Palmer’s are legion (and include Beauty Bible testers who’ve regularly declared products from the range worthy of one of our Awards…) Good news, then: there are two innovative ways to enjoy the nourishing, skin-smoothing, suppleness-restoring benefits of Palmer’s – and they couldn’t be easier to use, because they both come in spray formats.

If you like a lotion, opt for the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion: it spritzes on (from around 3-4 inches away), is non-greasy, and blends rapidly into skin for instant softness (and enduring moisturisation: Palmer’s promise a full 24 hours). It features what’s called ‘RapidSorb technology’, which tells you all you need to know about the fact this really does sink in fast.

Prefer an oil? There’s one of those, too: Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Skin Therapy Oil Spray, which is so easy to use (possibly the easy-peasiest of any body oil we’ve tried), once again it sprays on – and can then be massaged into skin. It’s said to contain ingredients which work on stretch marks and scars – but what we’re liking it for is an instant ‘gleam’ on summer legs, which seem to dry out so fast…

Butterlicious, all round.
