Been using this for years, and is one of my most favourite product of ALL TIME. Here's why...
>> It smells divine, like warm cookie dough. Melds deliciously with my Vanille Extreme perfume. YUM!
>> Its so inexpensive!
>> Leaves my skin feeling looovely.
>> Comes in a tiny travel bottle too, which carry in my bag. (I top up from my big bottle)
>> Speaking of which- it comes in BIG oober-value bottles. So much bang for your buck!
>> All-over versatile product; body oil, make-up remover, hair mask, bath oil....
I love this! I had eczema and my skin dried out super bad. This saved it and even my boyfriend notices how baby soft my skin is! I love the smell also.
Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil is a nourishing body treat without the grease, instantly hydrates, smoothes and softens dry skin. Love it!!!! I use this oil every day during winter.. smooth my skin right away.. bye... bye... dry skin..
I absolutely love this stuff! The smell is amazing and works wonders your skin. I am prone to really dry skin and using this has definitely helped reduce this. The one thing i must say is not to use this product on specific areas if you have eczema or really sensitive skin like me, it makes your skin really itchy and irritated so it tend to use it on my face and other parts of my body that dont have eczema. Oh and also the cap on the bottle sometimes leaks which is quite annoying if you're travelling. I know it says on the bottle it is for after showers or baths but sometimes in the morning i put a little on my face before applying makeup, it's helped reduce my spots and dry skin ALOT! :)
I love this product! I had a skin allergic reaction a few months ago, once it was cleared up- I was left with these dark marks on my skin. I purchased this product to reduce the appearance of these marks before the summer season. In the beginning I used this product 2 to 3 times a day as recommended. I saw great results. The marks were much lighter in color and reduced in size. Once the marks were not as noticeable I stopped using it 3 times a day, I use it once a day now. The marks aren't completely gone, but I didn't expect them to be so soon. Its great for moisture, it makes you skin look amazing after. I can't comment on its effectiveness for reducing the appearance of stretch marks since I don't use this product for that purpose. The only things I dislike about this product are the scent and the packaging. It has a baby oil cupcake kind of smell- some people may enjoy it but I personally don't. The scent usually doesn't last too long though so I can overlook it. The packaging isn't very good for traveling. No matter how I tried to wrap the bottle or protect it from leaking, it always did leak. If you're planning on traveling with this product, I would recommend just transferring it to another container altogether.
I am obsessed with Palmers products. I add a couple of caps to the bath, it leaves my skin really soft. Also I have very sensitive skin and it helps soothe the skin if I shave in the bath with this. I follow by palmers skin firming butter.
Love: great for dry skin - apply after showers Only. I also tried layering vaseline's cocoa lotion (or butter in winter) - excellllent combination :)
Scent ; very chocolately - BUT even with the above combination it doesnt last long and i do wear perfumes without worrying about clashing.
Used for: years!
What i hate ; the bottle has GOT TO change ! i place it on a soap dish cuz it ALways leaks on surfaces. Or just pour into to a spray bottle.
This is a great product! It absorbs really nicely (especially when compared to bio oil), feels nice on my skin, is non-irratating, is quite cheap and moisturises well....what more could you want? I can't comment on if it helps with stretch marks as I haven't used it regularly or for long enough. Given it's moiturising effect I'd use it regardless of if it helps with stretch marks anyway. I do know that it gives me skin a nice glow and makes it look healthy. I'd repurchase, and I'm disappointed that I bought bio-oil first as this is superior!
I love this stuff, and recommend it frequently! Unused to have irritated dry skin, but not anymore!
I love the vaguely chocolatey smell of this, but also like that it's not overpowering. I use it straight after my shower - I literally step out, and before yowling, slosh some of over my wet skin. The water makes the oil spread more easily. I then pa dry, and the job is done! I use this nearly every morning (some mornings I use a normal moisturiser) and my skin has never been better. As a pervious reviewer said, don't let water get in the bottle as it almost curdles, and smells yuk! I had to throw one away after it got wet. Screw the lid back on tightly after removing the paper seal, or you'll end up with it leaking everywhere.
For the money, an excellent product, have repurchased lots of times. On daily use a bottle last 2-3 months
I'm surprised there aren't more reviews on this!
The first time I used this, I was blown away. Usually a user of only moisturiser, this oil left my skin feeling like silk and very supple. There are a few tricks to it:
1.) Make sure the bottle lid is as tight as possible. This stops the product from leaking, alternatively put it in a spray bottle.
2.) Use it while the skin is still wet, at the end of the shower step away from the stream of water and use this liberally. It means you use less product because the water helps it disperse over your body, and also it locks the moisture into your skin better and absorbs more thoroughly.
3.) Do NOT leave the cap open! If you do and water gets in, it creates this odd cloudy mess at the bottom of the bottle and smells odd.
4.) Avoid using it on dry skin as it doesn't sink in properly and stays greasy.
I use this religiously after every shower and always get compliments on my skin. I also use a non-scented moisturiser after just to make myself even softer. I love the cocoa butter body lotion, but honestly this oil works a lot better.
Cons: The strong smell, sometimes I wish was unscented so i could wear perfume without it being disturbed! Also, the packaging.
Overall fantastic, lasts a long time and works beautifully. I will use this as long as they make it! Highly recommended (:
