Palmer’s Body Lotion Review

When winter really embraces you,  you got to look for more hydration options.  For this, I trust a long time known brand,  Palmer’s.  It has been in the industry for so long.  If you don’t know Palmer’s,  what you have been doing in life? Jokes apart, today I will talk about Palmer’s various body lotions.

Without further ado, let’s get started. 
1. Palmer’s Olive Oil Body Lotion :
Palmer’s Olive Oil Body Lotion is formulated with antioxidant-rich Extra Virgin Olive Oil , which is a natural moisturizer, fights free radicals while hydrating skin, Vitamin E , a powerful antioxidant that helps reduce the appearance of scars, stretch marks and imperfections on the skin, giving a more even, toned and youthful appearance and Anti Aging Peptide Complex that helps build Collagen for increased skin firmness and elasticity.  It has a slight and mild fragrance. It is not at all greasy and easily absorbed in the skin. 
2. Palmer’s Coconut Oil Body Lotion : 
Palmer’s Coconut Oil Formula contains Coconut oil which deeply nourishes and soften the skin, Tahitian Monoï Oil,  which hydrates and pampers the skin and Sweet Almond Oil that soothes and comforts the skin. It is also infused with Tiaré flower petals.  These raw and natural ingredients deliver luxuriously rich moisturisation for decadantly pampered skin. It also contains high levels of naturally occurring fatty acids and proteins that are essential in keeping skin radiant and healthy. I just love the natural fragrance and it is easily absorbed in the skin.

3. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion :
I am sure most of us must have surely tried this earlier . I have used it before and loved it absolutely.  It is lovely for rough and dry skin. It is infused with Cocoa Butter, a rich natural moisturizer that transforms even the roughest and driest areas into buttery soft skin and Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant as mentioned above. This rich and luxurious Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula daily body lotion provides deep hydration all over. This velvety soft formula absorbs quickly, creating a protective barrier that locks in moisture. From Normal to eczema prone skin, this emollient rich lotion effectively heals and softens leaving skin smooth, supple and beautiful.

4. Palmer’s Raw Shea Butter Body Lotion :
I am sure all you beauty lovers are aware about the benefits of Shea Butter. Palmer’s Raw Shea contains raw and natural Shea Butter that is sustainably sourced in Africa. Palmer’s Raw Shea Butter body lotion combines Shea Butter that deeply moisturizes and softens the skin, Marula, that improves the skin texture and radiance, Oatmeal Extract, that calms and soothes irritation, Vitamin E that rejuvenates and combats radical damage, Grapeseed Oil, Sunflower Seed Oil and Soybean Oil that help in keeping skin youthful,  balances tone and texture and prevents skin dehydration.

All the above body lotions are Free of Parabens, Phthalates, Mineral Oil, Gluten, Sulfates or Dyes and provide 24 Hour Moisture for your skin.

It is hard to pick one of these as my favourite. I hope you enjoyed reading this, until next time, see you and Happy Holidays! 

Cath Kidston Limited Edition Disney Collection Launch

Launching on the 6th December, the
second limited edition Disney x Cath Kidston collection, pays tribute to
Disney’s most iconic character, Mickey Mouse, and his equally beloved
girlfriend Minnie. You must have seen the pics on my Instagram. Let’s know more about it.

Once again, Cath Kidston has been granted
access to Disney’s archive in order to source the perfect original character
illustrations to blend into the brand’s signature prints. For this one-off
collection, Cath Kidston carefully selected five iconic
print designs to receive the Mickey and Minnie treatment.
You’ll find Mickey and Minnie woven into famous
florals and classic spots as well as cute novelties and a scenic, story-telling
print. These unique designs, which were created in close collaboration with
Disney, will delight Cath Kidston and Disney fans alike. They’re full of fun,
with a playful energy that nods to Mickey and Minnie’s roots as mischievous
cartoon characters, and star in a limited edition collection that includes
women’s fashion and accessories as well as designs for home and kids.

The spotlight’s on Mickey and Minnie in this
playful take on one of Cath Kidston’s classic designs, Button Spot.

Minnie’s in full bloom, and woven seamlessly
into the fabric of a signature Cath Kidston ditsy floral.

Minnie strikes a pretty pose amongst Cath
Kidston’s delicate florals.

Mickey pays a visit to Cath Kidston’s London
hometown! This print puts a modern spin on vintage cartoons.
A Mickey and Minnie love story in print form,
brimming with hearts and flowers.

Paese Long Cover Fluid Foundation, Paese Lush Satin Brightening Foundation and Paese Liquid Powder Double Skin Foundation Review

Hello sweeties ! I hope you are enjoying the winters. Recently, I have been trying a lot of makeup from Paese Cosmetics. Heard a lot about them specially their oil and serum. Since there are lot of products, I decided to break the review into several parts. Today I will talk about their several foundations.

About Paese :
Paese is an award winning Polish Cosmetics Brand, whose name is derived from an Italian word meaning ‘Country’ (Pa’eze). Their main factory is from Poland where they are doing very well. The brand may not be known much here but their products are amazing and I am sure you will love them too.
I attended their bloggers meet and got several foundation sachets to try and I will share my views with you. Paese foundations are created from highest quality ingredients and therefore provide skin care aspect.
1. Paese Long Cover Fluid Foundation :
This foundation is good for dry, normal and sensitive skin. It contains filter SPF6. It has a decent coverage. It perfectly evens the skin colour and hides all imperfections. It has creamy, rich consistency and very comfortable to apply, I prefer applying with a beauty blender but it gives flawless look with the foundation brush too.  Gives a long lasting coverage, making skin look fresh , radiant and natural all day long. It really moisturises the skin thanks to the ingredients like Shea butter and also soothes the skin irritation as it is rich with Provitamin B5. It also contains Vitamin A, C and E that ensures skin nourishment and protection against UV Rays. The ones with dry skin needn’t apply powder on the top, but the ones who have oily skin need to brush powder after the foundation to help it stay intact. It comes in 8 shades.
I got a dark shade to try, hence I mixed with light foundation or used it to create a bronzed, sun-kissed look.
2. Paese Lush Satin Multivitamin Brightening Foundation :
This foundation has exotic fruits extract. It is induced with Mango, Papaya and pomerange extracts that smooth, nourish, revitalize and improve the skin colour and Vitamin PP, A, C and E that moisturises dehydrated areas of the skin.. It also contains lifting polymers that smooths wrinkles. This is mainly for dry, grey and tried and normal complexion. This foundation ensures fresh looking, healthy and even skin.
I got a light shade and it did brighten my skin and give it a fresh look.
3. Paese Liquid Powder Double Skin Foundation :
This is a new launch. It is a light weight, moisturizing foundation for dry skin but can be used for people with normal skin as well. It creates gentle waterproof film on the facial surface ensuring perfectly smooth and flawless skin. It doesn’t leave oily layer and it doesn’t dehydrate the skin. Specially selected flaked pigments ensure even natural colour. It is induced with Vitamin A, C, E and F and silk amino acids that nourish skin enhance its hydration and support the synthesis of collagen. It ensures the non-transfer effect.

It has a nice coverage and stay put for a long time.

Paese has a wide colour range for foundations and hence it is easy to find a suitable shade for any skin tone, but it very fair, medium or very dark tones.

Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Cream Review

It is winter time and you need more hydration for your skin. Himalaya New Cocoa Butter Intensive body cream has soon become one of my favorite body cream. It smells amazing and makes by skin and body super smooth too. My skin has become as soft as kids skin. My skin feels totally nourished, supple and hydrated. It is super rich, thick and moisturizing cream.  It is not at all greasy unlike other creams.

It comes in 2 sizes. 50ml – AED 6 and 150ml – AED 12. That is not at all heavy on anyone’s pocket. It is total value for money.

This cream is available in all supermarkets across UAE. 

Look how thick is it !
