Spray lotions seem to be so popular again this year. Today I have a new spray lotion review on Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion.
About the Product and Claims Etc.
- Cocoa Butter & Aloe
- Instant Cooling
- Fast Absorbing
- 24 Hour Moisture
- Even Application
- Paraben & Phthalate Free
For best results, hold can 3-4 inches from skin and spray in a continuous motion. Rub gently into skin
- Cocoa Butter: a rich natural moisturizer that leaves skin soft and silky, tranforming even the roughest, driest areas into buttery soft skin.
- Vitamin E: a powerful antioxidant that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and imperfections on the skin, giving a more even and toned appearance.
- Aloe: cools and soothes skin
I feel a little conflicted on how I feel about this spray lotion. Let's start with the pros. I like the instant cooling from the spray and the aloe does help cool and soothe my skin. This is a great spray to use when your in a rush, or just for everyday use. The lotion has nice light chocolate scent mixed with aloe and the spray is non greasy. The spray is easy to use, it's very light weight, and it absorbs rather quickly. If you don't like thick textured lotions, then you may want to look into getting this product. I also like how this product is free of parabens and phthalates.
As for the cons, I really wish this spray provided more moisture. After an hour and half, my skin felt kind of dull and dry. The only claim I find to be untrue the 24 hour moisture. I typically don't have dry skin as problem, so I know it was the lotion that made my skin feel dry. Throughout the day I reapplied the this lotion about 3 times. To help provide more moisture to my skin, I added a little of the Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula that's in the jar in addition to using the spray lotion and the problem of lack of moisture was solved.

This is the type of cocoa butter I was talking about that I use to add extra moisture to the rapid spray lotion.
That's really the only con I have with this product, the lack of consistency in moisture. I probably would purchase this spray lotion because my pros outweigh my cons list. If you don't mind reapply a few times throughout the day (maybe you won't encounter the same issues I had), then I recommend giving this a try.
