Palmer's Cocoa Butter Natural Bronze Body Lotion


The sun has finally started shining and I've been desperate to get my legs out but they're far too pasty for the human eye and I didn't want to get all St Morized up. I'm usually a Garnier Summer Body kind of girl but I'm no stranger to Palmer's Cocoa Butter which I love so I couldn't resist giving this a whirl. The smell of this is still that familiar Palmer's smell we all know and love but I do think that once it's applied it does have a 'processing tan' whiff about it but it's nothing offensive! I applied this on Saturday afternoon and after one application I went a lovely golden colour which was a lot darker than I thought it would be, not two weeks in the Carribean, more two really sunny afternoons in the garden but it's definitely buildable to a much darker colour. I haven't reapplied it since and people are still commenting on the colour it's left me so it's definitely long lasting. I wasn't left patchy or streaky and the pump makes it super easy to dispense and I find a lot less messy than a squeezey bottle. Just remember to give your hands a scrub after you've applied to avoid orange stains in between your fingers, this is definitely a Summer staple for me now!

  3. I've noticed this in Superdrug a few times but have always been in two minds about buying. I'm not usually a tanning kinda gal, but my legs are almost transparent! They need a little colour for summer :P
