Palmer’s Eventone Suncare

I can’t express how important sun protection is – whether you are training outdoors regularly, or someone who just has exposure on a regular basis.  It isn’t just about aging – pesky lines and spots – either!  It is about being preventative with you skincare so as to avoid dangerous conditions as much as possible.

I used to train (figure skating) on an outdoor rink all winter as a child – for YEARS.  I was also a rollerblader who would frequent the beach trails or 10-mile outdoor paths in one go.  We didn’t know as much at the time, and I’d not be surprised if I had forgone my sunscreen back then.  These days, I still need to be better about arms, neck, shoulders, ears (the generally exposed areas when it’s warmer), but I ALWAYS have at least 30 SPF on my face.  Even then, I could reapply more frequently, but I definitely do make an effort.  

IT MATTERS.

I recently saw this new Sincere products from Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula at Target.  I love their regular Cocoa Butter (the scent reminds me of cookie batter!), so I was excited to see that SPF has been added to these.

I also love sprays because they are much easier to maneuver for the tough-to-reach spots like the back, back of neck, back of shoulders etc.

Whether or not you like THIS brand, or others, it’s worth checking out the sunscreen aisle – yes, ALL times of the year.  Your epidermis will thank you, as will your body down the line.

Palmer’s Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil has definitely gotten some major praise over the last year or two, and has come to the forefront in all sorts of cosmetic products.  Palmer’s, who is known (I think it’s fair to say) for its Cocoa Butter formulas (I have some myself!) has recently posted some new products on its Instagram page, all made with Coconut Oil.

By the looks of it, there are four items in the lineup:

  • Body Lotion
  • Body Cream
  • Body Oil
  • Hand Cream

One of the things I have always liked about Palmer’s Cocoa Butter is the scent – it reminds me of baking! I’d be curious to see what these smell like – good coconut scent is delicious.  

(There are, by the way, other Palmer’s Coconut Oil products out….but this does appear to be a new range all together!.)
