Skincare should always be in our attention but we can get away with it while we are young, meaning under 30. As I am already 40 and after two pregnancies, my skin started to show aging signs. Therefore, I started to give my skin some priority and I was very happy to start a collaboration with Palmer’s Middle East, as one of their brand ambassadors in UAE. Palmer’s started as a family business in the middle of the nineteenth century and was sold only in 1971 to E.T. Browne Drug Company, one of the longest standing proprietors of skin and hair care products in the United States.
As I have already mentioned, tighter and smoother skin can become an obsession starting from a certain age and the search for a good product to help in this battle is starting. Of course, we must find the right product for our skin and keep in mind that what works for someone might not work for us. In this post, I’ll tell you everything about the Coconut Oil Body Firming Sheet Mask from Palmer’s, which targets toning for hips, thighs and upper arms.
First of all, I love coconut oil for its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties and is also a very good moisturizer (it can also be used as sun protection). Palmer’s improved the coconut oil formula enriching it with Vitamin E, an antioxidant preventing skin aging and wrinkles. For this product, Guarana extract and Cupuacu butter were added, helping to improve microcirculation. Have I mentioned the smell? Every time I have Palmer’s products from the Coconut Oil Formula range I want to eat it. Better used with coconut cookies on the side, to have the smell and the taste at the same time.
The Mask pack contains two sheet masks for simultaneous treatment of proper size to fit the body’s curves. The Body Firming Sheet Mask is very easy to use in 3 steps:
1. I made sure my skin is clean and dry. I took the first mask and unfold it completely (yes, tempted to lick the coconut cream on it)
2. I applied it to my targeted area, the thighs, with a gentle press. It can be applied also on your hips, upper arms even stomach and buttocks. After I made sure it stays in its place, I unfolded the other sheet and applied it on the other thigh. You don’t have to use both sheets if not needed. In this case, you must make sure it is in a sealed bag to avoid evaporation.
3. I left them for 10 minutes and at some point a felt a slight tingling sensation.
After removing the sheets, I massaged the rest of the coconut cream in my skin. I was left with smoother skin and my daughter kept sniffing my thighs saying: “You smell very nice, mummy!”. Better results are seen after four weeks.
