Palmer's Rapid Moisture Spray Lotions - review

The (fairly recent) introduction of spray-mist moisturisers to the beauty market was kind of a revelation for me - I'm a reluctant moisturisee at best, so anything that speeds up the process or makes it less sticky and time-consuming pleases me greatly.

I was introduced to these Palmer's offerings around a month ago, and I have to say I'm pretty impressed. The gradual tan in particular is lovely - it soaks in nice and quickly due to its veil-like, spray application. Best of all it smells like chocolate, which just makes me want to slather it onto my body all the more. Although the dreaded fake tan smell does surface eventually (and it always does), it's pretty mild and bearable. It gives a good, natural glow - I'd call it sunkissed - which you can build over a few days or just use on occasions when you want a bit of colour. The only thing I'd say is that the mist can get everywhere which is a bit of a pain, and there's no guide colour so you have to be careful to apply it evenly. 

The moisturiser is a nice product as well, although unfortunately mine has a fault with the spray nozzle, so it doesn't have the same mist consistency as the former. This time, the scent is coconut - not as delicious as the chocolate, but pleasant all the same! This I'd more recommend as a mid-week moisturiser when you're feeling lazy, unless you're not really prone to dry skin. It feels nourishing, but it's not going to pack the same punch as a lotion or body butter if that's what you're used to. I also like using it as a barrier cream when applying a normal tanning mousse - I rub it onto my elbows, wrists and feet to stop any pesky clinging. 

Incidentally, Palmer's is one of the only bodycare brands I haven't had to clear out of my cupboards since going cruelty-free, so they're a good one to look out for if you're in the market for moisturisers, creams, or something else of that ilk.

'Ilk'... what a word.
