I’ve been a fan of Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula range for a while now but had yet to try some of their options for firming. They’ve also started a range of facial skincare products that I was also keen to check out - here’s a selection of what I’ve been using lately.
Firming Butter - this is designed for post-pregnancy and weight loss and is packed with the goodness of Cocoa Butter, Elastin, Collagen, Vitamin E and Shea Butter to tighten and tone the skin. It’s a lovely light consistency and absorbs quickly into the skin without feeling greasy or heavy. I really loved using this and it left my skin feeling well moisturised and the texture and tone has definitely improved in the few weeks I have been using it. I’m pretty active and go to the gym at least 4 times a week (which is always going to help if you’re looking to really tone up) but I think it deserves praise for improving the appearance and feel of my skin too!
Body Gloss - I loved using this for night’s out as it’s a much thicker, richer consistency leaving skin feeling ultra nourished and the subtle shimmer in this looks amazing and works really well at highlighting areas you want to draw more attention too (yes please legs, arms, shoulders, collarbone, decolletage!)
Bust cream - Wahey! This is one I’m sure all partners would be more than happy to help apply for you! Right, now the obvious is out the way - It’s advised you use this twice a day but due to my rather haphazard freelance life I only ever seem to get to use this in the mornings! It is fab though and again a thicker, richer feeling cream which is lovely to use but I think needs more thorough use before I can really comment!
Last but by no means least…
Line smoothing eye cream - Now this is something I have been really impressed by! As I’m scarily close to leaving my 20s behind me I have been more aware of taking care of my skin and trying to keep it looking as good as possible. I’d started to notice more fine lines around my eyes so was after something that would fend off any more of the little blighters from getting to me! This cream is brilliant! It’s lovely and light but a little goes a long way. I’ve used it morning and evening for 2 weeks and I feel like those lines that bothered me before aren’t as noticeable and generally my eye area looks much brighter and less dull than before. I have been making more of an effort to drink more water and green tea though and as always I really recommend trying to cut out as much processed junk as possible as your skin (and body generally) will thank you for it by looking much better in return! But credit where it’s due I really think this a brilliant product and have been singing its praises to anyone who’ll let me harp on about it!
So there you have it - some excellent ‘solution’ products for you to take stock of and maybe try for yourself - which one stands out for you?
