bye bye goose man!

Chris had been mentioning that he had developed tiny bumps on his upper arm and bicep, and I was clueless as to how to fix his problem. He said 'you're the beauty blogger!help me!' and so off I went to find out what to do. Okay, so as I googled I became distracted reading some of my favourite blogs, but lo and behold there the answer lay!

Vita from Making Up 4 My Age is one of the sweetest bloggers I know, and she mentioned the Palmer's Skin Smoothing lotion in her empties here. Vita mentioned that it contained alpha/beta hydroxy and worked well at keeping her keratosis (or goose flesh!) under control! I connected the dots and realised that my man was suffering from keratosis as well, so I nicked up to Priceline and picked him up a bottle.

Palmer's Skin Smoothing lotion claims that it will "remove dry skin cells...[and] uncovers healthier looking skin".
The lotion is based on the Palmers cocoa butter formula with vitamin E. Palmer's says that
"This fast-absorbing lotion helps redue the appearance of fine line and wrinkles and evens skin tone. Your skin will feel soft, smooth and healthy with no greasy after-feel."

Chris is much more confident since using this smoothing lotion and his skin is moisturised and goose-flesh free. I am absolutely enthralled with the fresh yet masculine scent it has, and can't help but snuggle up to Chris once he applies it. It's so refreshing to find a product that does exactly what it promises plus more, and is affordable and easy to find.

This is a definite repurchase for me, it is a lovely lotion even without the benefits of the Alpha/Beta Hydroxy, and so Chris is happy to use this each night over any other I've purchased for him. If you suffer from keratosis or know someone who is driven crazy with it, let them know about this!

Palmer's Skin Smoothing Lotion retails for $9.95 for 250ml and is available from Priceline, Target, Kmart, Big W, Price Attack, Hairhouse Warehouse, pharmacies and supermarkets.
More information about Palmer's can be found here.

Have you ever suffered from keratosis?
 What producs from the Palmer's range do you love?

This product was purchased with my own moolah. Honesty, always.


  1. I am so glad it worked for Chris. I always have a bottle in my bathroom because its the best affordable treatment for my keratosis. Great review by the way! xoxo

    1. I'm so glad you mentioned it, he is so happy now. It's so cheap, I am happy too. Thanks for commenting :)xxx

  2. I've always had keratosis ony arms but I've noticed it's getting especially bad lately. I will definitely be checking this out! Thanks!

    1. I do hope this works for you Kimberley! It's a wonder product, I love the smell of it it's lovely.

  3. Hi Emma, A Beta-hydroxy acid such as salicylic acid is even better as it penetrates the pore. It is also an anti-inflammatory as an extra bonus! :)

    1. Oh I didn't know that, I'll keep that in mind. Do you know of any good lotions with this, for the body?
