New In! Palmer's SPRAY LotionThursday, May 28, 2015
Earlier on this month, I received these three very interesting lotions from Palmer's. Despite using body moisturizers for so many years, this is my first time experimenting with lotion emitted from a spray bottle!
I'm sure everyone has heard of Palmer's. Founded in America more than 170 years ago in 1842, it has become one of the world’s leading names in skincare. Their #1 Cocoa Formula Butter is my absolute favourite. I remember when I was expecting both Dylan and Alexis, I used Palmer's Anti-Stretch Mark Cream religiously!
Having absolutely zero stretch marks from both pregnancy, I am convinced to say that it really works. With this Cocoa Butter Formula, Palmer's continued to provide a Palmer’s product for every skincare need: hand and body care, facial care, stretch mark care, hair care, body care and personal care.
Palmer’s is against animal testing and all of the products are cruelty free. Majority of Palmer’s products are free of parabens, phthalates and sulphates.
This new age moisturizer in a can is no different - using their key ingredient Cocoa Butter it now uses a unique delivery system and Rapidsorb ® Technology which is non-aerosol based and uses NO propellants to deliver fine sprays which allow the lotions to be very quickly absorbed into the skin.
Rapid Moisture Instant Cooling and Deep Moisture Spray
My husband is out in the sun very often, and sometimes, he comes home with angry sunburnt skin on his shoulders. A fortnight ago, a situation like this occurred and as soon as he came wincing out from the shower, I applied the Rapid Moisture Instant Cooling on him to see how well it works!
I like it that the consistency of the lotion is thinner as compared to regular lotion (it even reminds me of the little snowflakes!). It is also very easy to use, just hold the spray bottle about 3 to 4 inches away from your skin and spray evenly.
Believe me, the lotions get absorbed in seconds! Also, its super-lightweight, non-staining and non-greasy formula allows you to get dressed in a jiffy.
Watch this video to see how easy it is to apply!
The spray bottle gives a quick application from my shoulder to wrist in just two seconds and all I needed to do is to massage it in gently. Its lightweight bottle (200g!) also means convenience in leaving it in your workbag or gym bag and extremely suitable for people on the go.
The Instant Cooling lets out a gentle cooling sensation after application, soothing his angry red skin, burnt from the sun. I alternate the Deep Moisture Spray with the Instant Cooling Spray to keep his skin constantly hydrated as it heals.
Another thing I like is that the moisturising effect is so powerful, it is able to keep our skin hydrated for 24 hours! For someone like my husband who barely finds time to moisturise his skin, I am thankful that the coat I gave him in the morning before he leaves for work can last him all the way until he comes back in the evening. Hurray!
Wife 1, husband 0. Hehehe.
All three variations of Palmer's Spray Lotion contains Cocoa Butter, which is a rich natural moisturizer that leaves skin soft and silky, tranforming even the roughest, driest areas into buttery soft skin. Watch this video for a deeper explanation!
Apart from that, they also contain Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and imperfections on the skin, giving a more even and toned appearance, and Shea Butter that will deeply moisturize and nourish the skin, giving it a soft and radiant glow.
Spray Lotion for Stretch Marks
Before we begin, I'd like you to take a look at this informative video about the 6 facts of stretch marks:
One of the scariest thing is that a whopping 50% of women WILL get stretch marks in our lives. Regardless of size, we get stretch marks through pregnancy, pre-teen period when we have hormonal changes, or when we gain or lose weight drastically.
Even though stretch marks will fade over time, it is almost impossible to remove them completely - which is why it is important that we prevent it from happening in the first place!
I believe I've shared with you all that I used Palmer's Anti-Stretch Mark Cream religiously when I was pregnant. Every day, I will apply twice - once in the morning and once before I go to bed. With this new spray bottle, applying stretch mark lotion is even easier because you can reach difficult to reach places, and the fast absorption that I really appreciate makes it a breeze because I don't have to walk around flashing my belly while waiting for the cream to be completely absorbed, haha!
All three ranges of Palmer's Spray Lotion is available at Watsons, Guardian, Fairprice, Robinsons, BHG, John Little and leading cosmetics stores.
