I’m adding two more products in my arsenal against dry skin. Today’s favorites are from Palmer’s Middle East. A brand with a great range of skincare products which use the finest natural ingredients. They got four key formulas their products are made from: Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Olive Oil.
March is my B-day month and I’m literally spoiling myself with all these beauty and skincare products that you can see going on here on my blog, on my Instagram and on Snapchat. (Yesssss, I have Snapchat :))) Find me by my full name: NicoletaBuru). As I have already a miracle jar of Shea Butter DXB for my famous dry skin (see the full review HERE) I decided to try Cocoa Butter formula from @PalmersMe
WHY Cocoa Butter?
Cocoa Butter is a rich vegetable fat extracted from the fruit or pods of the cacao tree (the same ingredient contained in the yummy confection, chocolate). This tree only grows in a specific geographical zone, approximately 20 degrees north and south of the Equator, including countries like Nigeria, Ghana, Brazil, the Dominican Republic, Venezuela and the Ivory Coast. Cacao trees produce fruit in the form of large green pods with each containing approximately 30 to 40 beans. At maturity, these pods are harvested from the trunks and branches of the cacao tree with a curved knife on a long pole. Pods are separated by colors that correspond to the quality of the bean; those with poorer aromas and flavors may be used for industrial chocolate, while the higher quality beans are used in Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula. After drying, fermentation and roasting, the beans are crushed and pressed to extrude the rich, creamy vegetable fat…Cocoa Butter.
Good for Dry Skin
Cocoa Butter is a skin-conditioning agent that coats the skin with a fine, non-greasy film, thereby diminishing water loss and leaving skin softened and protected against any harsh elements.
Cocoa Butter is unique among vegetable fats because it is a solid at normal room temperature, but melts at body temperature. (I love this part most of all 🙂 :)) It is easily absorbed into the skin, contains rich emollients and Vitamin E, a skin conditioner that enhances the soothing and softening effects.
Foot Magic (the small one in the picture) deeply moisturizes the rough and dry skin especially on feet where extra care is needed. Enriched with Vitamin E, with Peppermint Oil, Cocoa and Mango butter. Has a strong smell due to its Peppermint content and at feel is like a vaseline. Soothes tired feet at max.
Cocoa Butter Formula (the big bottle) is sooooooo nice, guys. My favorite from these two. The texture smells , feels and looks soooo yummy 🙂 I am literally in love with this product. Amazing daily lotion for deep hydration, smoothes and softens from normal to dry skin. Velvety soft effect after using it, quickly absorbing and a good protective barrier that locks in moisture (Love, Love, Love this). Plus (for those facing this problem) it is good for eczema prone skin. Sum up facts: Contains Pure Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E, Paraben Free and Phthalate Free, Provides 24h moisture, Suitable for Eczema prone skin, Fast Absorbing, Soothes Skin After Sun Exposure, Smoothes Marks and Scars.
