This is soooo close to being the perfect lotion! It is thick and creamy but absorbs like a dream with absolutely no greasiness or that gross slick goopy feeling. It leaves your skin soft, hydrated and with just a slight glow. Its not so rich that it causes body breakouts but definitely nourishing enough even for dry hands and feet. Its cheap, natural and easy to find. The ONLY bad thing I have to say about it is that it reeks. The cocoa butter scent is not my favorite and it seems to last. my husband loathes the smell of this :( If this smelled better or not at all it would be my HG for life! As it is, I will repurchase untill I stumble on something better (or DH says he cant handle it). I got it for $7.99 CAD at London Drugs.
I find this lotion very moisturizing and keeps my skin soft all day, and never dry or ashy. It absorbs quickly and doesn't irritate my skin, even the eczema on my hands can tolerate this. I like that it's a natural product, and contains some good ingredients. However, I can't give it full marks because it is way too fragranced. I think it's in poor taste when a company that is supposed to be "natural" adds artificial/chemical fragrance to their product. The smell is too strong, and lasts a long time. Fortunately I don't find the smell bad, so I don't mind it. Really, my boyfriend loves it for his skin so that's why I will repurchase. And it doesn't rank bad on the Skin Deep site for toxicity etc.
I am loving this! It's fairly light, sinks in quickly, and leaves my skin super soft. The texture is WAY nicer than Palmers Cocoa Butter lotion, which I find doesn't sink in well (and takes a long time before you can get dressed). And unlike the Palmers, it's paraben-free. I know that logically, topicals can't help prevent pregnancy stretch marks but that doesn't mean I'm not going to try!
I love this product. I was uising the jason 5000 iu vitamin e cream alpong the same time I was using this. This lotion made my dry,cracked hands soft,moisturized and glowing. Ilove the smell-nice,natural,and comforting.it might take some getting used too. I would definately get this again. I love it!!! If you want soft skin,this produt delivers.
I was very disappointed with this lotion!! The smell was very gross. After applying my whole body with this, I wanted to take a shower again! The smell also stays for awhile before it dissipates. It is average as a moisturizer but I would not purchase again simply because of the scent.
There are a lot of good natural/ organic beauty products out there nowadays that are effective, pure AND a pleasure to use.
This smelled more like coffee cake than cocoa butter and lasted on my skin for a very long time, something I did not expect or enjoy. The texture was creamy and made my skin very smooth. I always liked Palmer's, but I prefer this to Palmer's. It's lest thick and greasy. It's not that expensive and worth a try if you like foody scents.
this is the only cocoa butter lotion that sickened me to the gut. this thing stinks!!! the first time you apply it smells yummy and delicious, but after a while, it starts to smell gross!
I like the smell of cocoa butter but the smell of this is a little off for me. Still I buy it because it is cheap and effective. I have a more expensive cream (mode de vie) with cocoa butter in it and I mix the two to make the expensive one last longer :-) Unlike the earlier review though, i found it aggravates my KP (chicken bumps) so i only use it on my hands and legs.
I've had this on my desk for months and I'm still loving the yummy scent of this. I tend to get sick of most cocoa butter scents after a while but this stays fresh and natural. It's cheap enough that I can slather it on in luxurious amounts and it absorbs decently too.
hmmm - not sure about this one. really intrigued by all the reviews - bought today & used on hands. nice smell - though not strong enough. doesn't seem all that moisturizing - actually felt 'watery' in the end.. like the cream was actually a gel or something. weird. my hands weren't dry afterwards, but can't say they were really moisturized either. will try on body in the morning & write my review on that. EDIT EDIT EDIT: okay so now i've tried it 2nd day - weird - consistency changed a bit but still not as creamy as i'd like. not bad though & not greasy thus leaving my worksheets clear of greasy spots. continued >>
