Forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.
– Kahlil Gibran
For centuries a woman’s hair and her feet were always a part of poetry and romance, there is so much a woman does to maintain her appearance, from ironing her hair to pumicing her heels was all part of the ancient beauty regime, and thus has always been an important factor for a woman which was passed onto generations.
That being said, these days the extreme measures of the environment has been a contributing factor harming our wellbeing, and this reflects on our body from our hair to our feet, internal factors such as hormonal issues and stress can contribute to devastating results for your hair. Falling for commercial products filled with harmful chemicals cause even further damage to our hair follicles. We all strive for perfection, including our beauty but we all know though perfect and healthy hair is a strong attribute, we are unable to completely have control in this area.
Hormonal imbalance and thyroid also contribute to dry and cracked heels, and prolonged standing or ill-fitting shoes can also be a contributing factor to our feet’s health. Though there can be a medical condition to these factors, this should not stop us from caring for ourselves and researching products that can help us heal, especially natural products that can help repair the damage already done.
I’ve been a victim to hormonal imbalance and as you can see from what I’ve mentioned above, there were a lot of damaging factors done to my hair, from hair loss to dry and frizzy hair, this made me realise that by falling for commercial, chemical filled products I was only causing further harm to myself and decided to put a stop to them. Ever since I have now switched and trying my best to use only natural products for my beauty and skincare routine.
Recently I’ve been invited to be a part of the Palmers Brand Ambassador program, where we get sent a kit with products every second month to try out and review. What was special to me about this brand was, that it was a part of my childhood, how you ask? My mom has been using Palmers ever since I was a baby and to know that I now have been a part of their program was definitely heartwarming.
Have you heard of the Palmers? I’m sure almost all of you have, but for those of you who aren’t aware of the brand, here’s a little history about the brand.

PALMERS COCONUT OIL FORMULA – DEEP CONDITIONING PROTEIN PACK
My hair can be extremely dry and frizzy as mentioned, due to my hormonal factors, I was quite excited upon receiving this protein treatment, something that I’ve always been looking for a natural product containing ethically and sustainably sourced coconut oil, as an eco-blogger the 2 winning words for me are “Ethical” & “Sustainable”.
- Coconut Oil
- Coconut Milk
- Tahitian Monoi
- Tiare Flower petals infusion
Good to know
No Sulfates • No Parabens • No Phthalates • No Mineral Oil • No Gluten • No Dyes
How it looks/feels
The formula is thick, white, and creamy; it has a pleasant and tropical coconut smell; it comes in single-use packets.
Shampoo your hair as normal and rinse off, apply this the cream by distributing evenly through your hair, focusing on the ends and leave for 10-20 mins (best to put a shower cap and wrap your hair to help the treatment work better)
- You don’t need to use the whole sachet, I used 1/3rd of the cream, you can use this sachet for another 3-4 times.
- You don’t need to use a conditioner after the treatment
- You can distribute the cream evenly by using a wide-toothed comb, this way you don’t have to waste the product.
The product was a winner for me, I could immediately see and feel the difference in my strands, my curls were back with life, soft and bouncy. The best part was I didn’t have to use a conditioner! Though I was skeptical at first, the result was amazing! My hair condition was so bad, I would have more than 10 strands of hair fall while showering, but I noticed when I used this treatment it was down to 4-5 strands! Such a miracle treatment for the hair! The tropical fragrance of coconut lingers in your hair even after you shower. This product not only replenishes and restores your hair but also helps with hair fall. Its definitely the natural goodness and quality of the ingredients that make this product a winner for me.
This result was just with one try, imagine how efficient the product would work with multiple uses? This should be a must have for all women with damaged hair and a must for their hair care routine!
COCOA BUTTER FORMULA – VITAMIN E – FOOT MAGIC
Maintaining the appearance of your feet can definitely be a hassle, I’ve always had a dry feet condition. No matter how many pedicures I go for and how much I care for them, they generally dry up and crack, I’ve always had to apply petroleum jelly on my heels to help with the dryness but never made the effort to go through the “moisturize- wear cotton socks” regime. But when I received this product and tried it on, it worked like magic!
- Pure Cocoa Butter
- Vitamin E
- Peppermint oil
How it looks/feels
A yellowish gel-like substance similar to a balm, with a peppermint fragrance
- Apply Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Foot Magic to rough, dry calloused feet daily to achieve and maintain soft, supple skin.
- When at home, use a pumice stone to smooth your heels, apply a foot scrub
- Effective when applied to feet at night then covered with cotton socks.
The words “Foot Magic” definitely does justice to this product, it worked wonders in just a few tries, I used to have dry and rough feet along with a few cracks, which made me feel very conscious to wear my flip flops during this summer season, this product is a definite rescue! With just 2 days of use, my feet were moisturized helped soothe my dry patches and healed my cracks, leaving a soft, smooth and relaxed minty feet (The peppermint oil is the highlight ingredient!)
I would definitely recommend Palmers Protein treatment and Palmers Foot magic, both the products have worked wonders for me, and most definitely would work for you,
This brand has my confidence, from my mom to me a brand close to my heart.
