As you have seen from my recent trip to New York, I was fortunate enough to meet AZ Araujo the Brazilian fashion designer with amazing swimwear designs for men and women. I had the opportunity to walk in his show over Fashion Week here modelling his Summer 2013 collection, inspired by exotic islands and adorned with fruits and tropical plants. I also participated in a photo shoot in front of Lincoln Centre here and in Times Square here with Adriana de Moura from “The Real Housewives of Miami”.

Palmer’s is always very present at all of AZ’s shows and press launches as they promote each other, it is the perfect partnership between swimwear designer and skin care range. Palmer’s uses only the finest ingredients to provide consumers with the highest quality formula’s at affordable prices. Available in over 80 countries offering the #1 Cocoa Butter brand in the world, they are also involved in various charities and foundations.

In preparation backstage for my runway and photoshoots I was prepped with the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil which was neither sticky nor wet, it finished with a dry shine that made my legs look more defined and lengthened. I have used the Palmer’s Cocoa Body Butter in the past and always loved it so I was delighted when AZ Araujo left me with a goodbye package full of Palmer’s products! I have had such a great time trying them all out and have now decided to do a write up now that I know each product after using them for the last few weeks.

As a woman I love to try new products, Palmer’s skin care formula features the use of Vitamin E, an antioxidant that soothes dry skin, reduces the appearance of scars, aging, corrects skin tone unevenness and prevents different types of skin damage leaving your skin feeling silky soft and glowing.

About Cocoa Butter
Cocoa butter, an antioxidant with a high content of skin-moisturizing vitamin E, comes from the vegetable fat of the cocoa bean. It naturally hydrates the top layer of the skin, sometimes reaching the middle layer, while also reducing the appearance of scars. It also contains natural preservatives, which makes the cocoa butter scent long-lasting without the harsh chemicals used in other skin-care products.


A big thank you to my dear new friend AZ Araujo for his generosity and kindness to my mother and I when we were alone in a foreign country. Also to Palmer’s for their great products and skin care formulas, I wish you and AZ all the best in all your future endeavors together.
