Palmer's Cocoa Butter Natural bronze Body lotion

Hey everyone! 

This is my third review about gradual tanning moisturisers! Talking today about a brand I love from Uk, Palmer's!

The smell of all their range is just ridiculously amazing! This cocoa butter makes you feel you have chocolate on your body!

On to the gradual tanner.
First and most important, it gives you a brown color from your very first application. It is certainly  not a regural gradual lotion for me that takes too long to see the color. On the third day you could actually see that you have more than a sunkissed color! An actual brown one. I find that if you apply it more than 4 days with no shaving in the middle, you might become a little bit orange. So thats a part you need to pay attention to. That happens because it gives you the desirable color from the very first time and you think, wait; it's a gradual lotion so I need to apply it every day. No! 3 days are enough and boom! Fabulous tan saving money on the same time I would say, as you don't need it regularly.
When you shower, I find that it doesn't fade away as most gradual tanners do, only a little bit of color goes away with the water. I think that you won't need neither after your shower to reapply it! That's what amazed me. 3 days per week and I'm ready! 

When it comes to moisturisation... Hmm, it's definitely a thick formula, not that lightweight feeling some expensive lotions provides. Personally I can feel that it's a drugstore product from that factor but ok, it doesnt' bother me. When you put it on, you don't need too many circular motions to blend it in as it dries out quickly, becoming a thick moisture layer on your skin. I could say that if you use one full pump per leg, it could be hard for your body to absorb such an amount. I find that a little less than a pump is enough for each leg and arm so as not to become a sticky mess. I can feel that I'm moisturised, that I can have something on, but for me it takes too long to actually put my clothes on and go out, so I need to have this on before I do anything else.  A couple of hours later you can see that your skin is soft and smooth. 

Now for the smell.. I believe that there are two group of people, one who would hate it and the other who would love it! It has the most sweet and biscuity smell, like a chocolate cake. Too sweet only with a pump, really. The reason I do love the smell is only because I'll keep using it when the summer comes to its end and when the summer is going to start, periods that I tend liking those sweet smells. In the middle of the summer, with so much heat, I think I would be in the first group of people who would kind of hate the smell. For my taste it's too heavy. There are plenty other smells out there that could do the same job in hot days. I'm saying that so as you to know that I do use it with so much joy but not all year long.



It's the combination of those3 factors that made me love this product and keep reaching more bottles!
The immediate from the first use brown, not orange color, the real moisturisation it provides and its sweety perfum that leaves your skin with!
I believe that the key of its success is that it can be used from all skin tones, which means that you won't have to worry about choosing the light version for fair skin, the medium or the dark one.

As for the package, I love the handy pump it has that allows you not to make a mess in your bathroom/room keeping it clean every time you apply .
It's a 250ml for 6 Euros. You can find it many times for less too.
That's why I'll keep repurchasing it! 
Palmer's has soooo many good value products that they deserve at least one try, trust me! 


My mum also has the Facial scrub and the Firming Butter wich she loves! ( both the smell and the job they do). 

The scrub exfoliates gently your skin, while it leaves you with a super smooth result. Baby face, amazing!
The firming lotion leaves you with that tight skin, like you are out in winter time with no clothes!

We also use the facial mask! Yes, we are both of us huge Palmer's followers :)
