Palmer's Cocoa Butter Foot Magic is a concentrated thick, oil/cream "ointment" that not only leaves skin hydrated and glossy in an instant, it also smells great and refreshes feet. Palmer's Cocoa Butter Foot Magic is made with pure Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E, Mango Butter, Shea Butter and Peppermint Oil

I only needed a dime sized amount of  Palmer's Cocoa Butter Foot Magic to use on both feet.  It felt a bit oily at first (wait a few seconds before walking in bare feet if you're using it on the bottom of your feet!).  Within a minute, it melted into my skin and it absorbed into my dry heels and feet. I loved the subtle, fresh peppermint scent and how soft, smooth and glowing my skin looked.

If you want the effects overnight,  Palmer's Cocoa Butter Foot Magic is perfect to apply to your feet with a pair of socks before bed.  In the morning, your feet will look as good and feel as soft as a baby's.  Sometimes, when I was in a rush in the morning, I would then add a touch just on my heels right after a shower, and my feet were moisturized and soft the rest of the day.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Foot Magic is the perfect foot treatment for giving yourself an at home pedicure, or giving yourself or your significant other a pampering foot/leg massage, since the peppermint works to relax the muscles as well.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Foot Magic is a travel-friendly size that is perfect for adding to your travel bag or gym bag.  If you find yourself with dry feet in a pair of sandals you can add a quick touch and your feet will look like new! Stock up on this one for summer. - RLB

Beauty Find - Supergoop Defense Setting Mist SPF 50


Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum SPF 50 
I'm always attracted to new and innovative sun protection products, and one of my favorite suncare lines, Supergoop! has one I love. 



Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist Broad Spectrum SPF 50 has everything I look for - it multi-tasks as a sun protection spray, makeup primer and setting spray.  Best of all, it's so lightweight that I'm able to add additional spray during the day if needed without disturbing my makeup or making my bare skin feel sticky or greasy.



To begin using, as directed, I gave Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist a good shake before using.  The mist is very fine and lightweight, and I needed about 3 sprays to cover my face   I love the light, fresh scent, which is made with rosemary and mint.  On bare skin, the finish is a natural matte, which didn't irritate my t zone or make me appear more oily, thanks to their optical diffusing silica silylate further helps to control oil and reduce shine—leaving skin feeling soft and smooth with a matte finish.

Spectrum SPF 50 1 oz/ 30 mL

I used  Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist both over makeup and on bare skin.  To use with makeup during the week, I applied after cleansing and a light serum. 

Then I applied my makeup, which worked well with the spray.  Afterwards, I did one last spray to set my makeup and leave a natural matte finish.  

During the day, my makeup stayed fresh, with very little wear off or melting/running.  
While I did have to blot about 1-2 times during the day, especially on very hot/humid days, the amount of oil was reduced by at least half and with a quick spritz my skin was back to matte.





On bare skin or just using minimal eye/lip makeup, my skin remained fresh and naturally matte throughout the day, with no oily or greasy feel.



Since Supergoop! Defense Refresh Setting Mist is so convenient, it's also ideal to keep in my day bag to apply to my little one when we're in sunny areas or stop by the park/beach. Because it feels completely weightless on skin, kids won't complain about having it on either!

I love having such a easy way to add SPF 50  to my daily routine.  Now there's also a travel version which I keep in my beauty bag at all times, which is a 1 oz/ 30 mL size. - RLB
