I also hate, hate, haaaate that thick, sticky texture of many body products. This puts me off mosturising my body, although I should given that I have heredity dry skin and pretty bad stretch marks across my lower tummy from of course, my double pregnancies.
Which is why this new range of moisturising spray lotions by Palmer's is excellent for a busy or lazy (but totally need to mosturise) person like me.
If you are familiar with Palmer's, you would know that the key ingredient in any Palmer's product is of course, Cocoa Butter. Cocoa Butter really is superfood for skin. It is a rich natural moisturizer that provides superior soothing properties and helps skin retain its natural moisture, leaving skin soft and supple. So it is no surprised that the spray lotions contain this key ingredient.

Back to the products. All are scented and they smell slightly different from each other. Palmer's Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion Deep Moisture has the best smell, in my opinion. With ingredients like cocoa butter and shea butter, it smells like dessert on my skin.
To use, simply twist the top anti-clockwise to unlock the cap. The locking mechnism ensures that there aren't any accidental sprays or leaks if you take it with you while you travel. As recommended, hold the can 3-4 inches from skin and spray in continuous motion. I found that I didn't need to spray too long as the amount dispersed was sufficient. It is also easy to apply on hard-to-reach spots like my back!
The lotions are also parabens and phthlates free and the spray mechanism doesn't use any propellants so all that is released onto your skin is pure product.
I sprayed this on just before I headed out into the hot sun and there was absolutely no stickiness whatsoever. I'm taking this to my Phuket vacation next week. The Aloe Vera formula will be a refreshing treat on skin after spending a whole day on the beach.
At first I thought the light formulation wouldn't be hydrating enough for my super dry skin. But I was wrong. My skin feels well moisturised and remain soft to touch the entire day. After about 3 days of continuous usage, the scaliness on my skin seems to have improved. What do you think?
Palmer's Stretch Mark Spray Lotion is probably the greasiest of the lot. But this fact should NOT scare you off. This is because the whole range of spray lotion is pretty darn lightweight.
This one contains of the superfood pure Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E, Soy Lechithin and Bio C-Elaste which is a powerful combination of Centella Asiatica, Collagen, Elastin, Sweet Almond Oil and Argan Oil that absorbs quickly into skin while providing 24 hour stretch mark fighting moisture.
The lotion provides deep moisture, soothes dry itchy skin and supports skin elasticity while reduce the chances of scarring and markings on skin
Slight improvement for ONE week but according to this video below, stretch marks do fade overtime, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed. The video has some very interesting myths and facts about stretch marks, so have a look if you are curious to find out more.
