Budget Beauty Tuesday: Editor’s Pick-Keep Your Summer Glow with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Gel Oil SPF 15
I have two shades of brown — my winter color — which is a tad bit on the pale side, and my summer color — which I love. My summer color is a golden brown. Like the perfect piece of toast or pecan pie. Yummy. It took me a long time to figure out why my friends of a fairer persuasion compared tan lines with me and spent major moolah on tanning oils and sun lamps in high school, but with the “Tanning of America” I am very clear on the reasons now. (I think dated myself here…)
Today spray on tans, self-tanner and bronzers are the way to go when it comes to perfecting and maintaining a summer glow. We can all most certainly agree that a golden brown glow, particularly when it’s natural, is a thing of beauty.
We do know that it’s just not safe to bake in the sun. It causes a plethora of evils — burns, skin cancer and that ugly leather skin. But we can fake a bronzed golden glow, and prolong that golden glow throughout the year. I’m into budget beauty, and Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Gel Oil SPF 15 is favorite budget beauty product that is part of my own beauty arsenal.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Gel Oil SPF 15 $7.99
Contains an exclusive blend of pure cocoa butter, vitamin E, shea butter, jojoba oil, with the added benefit of SPF 15 UVA/UVB sun protection
This oil is on the thick side, so a little goes a very long way. I suggest putting it on after your bath or shower, as it seems to just melt into the skin. It keeps you moist and glowing all day. Plus you have the benefit of spf 15, so you get double duty!
