Palmer's Skincare

I first came across the Palmer's range whilst I was pregnant with C. I bought one of their stretch mark creams but to be honest, I ended up using it for a few days then completely forgetting about it.

A couple of months ago I was given the opportunity to try a few items from the Palmer's range and now that I've used them all up, I wanted to share my thoughts.

Firstly, I received the Massage Cream For Stretch Marks (125g). After having two children, I have horrid stretch marks on my tummy. I'm not one of those ladies who have amazing genetics and didn't get a single one. My tummy is covered in the silvery ones.

This cream has an amazing cocoa scent and leaves your skin feeling soft and smelling beautiful. It is recommended that you massage it onto your tummy, hips, thighs and other areas prone to stretch marks in a circular motion. I'm awful at remembering things so I aimed to do it every night before I went to bed. The cream is thicker than I thought it would be and it absorbs into the skin easily. It doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy, sticky or wet. The Elastin helps your skins elasticity and the combination of vitamin E, shea butter and cocoa butter leaves your skin feeling supple and soft. After around two months of usage, my stretchmarks don't seem as ugly and horrible as they once were.

Secondly, I tried out the Bust Cream (125g). I didn't get any stretchmarks in that area with C but I got lots with E. This cream differs from the regular stretch mark cream as it has been developed specifically for the delicate skin around the bust area. It's a little runnier than the stretch mark cream and I did find that my bra or t-shirt would stick to it if I put it back on right away. This cream doesn't have that strong cocoa smell, it's more of an aloe one but it is just as beautiful.

Finally, E has been trying the Bottom Butter (125g). E at 8 months old is silently teething and due to that, she has had a bit of a nappy rash. This bottom butter is really thick but it does spread okay. I thought this might a bit of a problem. It's a brownish-grey colour which may put people off (alongside the strong cocoa scent) but it really has worked wonders for her. Within a few days, her rash had cleared up and her skin was nice and soft again due to the Pro Vitamin B5. I would definitely recommend it.

You can find out more about the range at the Palmer's website or you can follow them on Facebook and Twitter.
