This is my go to lotion. It's very moisturising & cheap, too! I slathered my belly with this while I was pregnant & avoided getting stretch marks! I liked using this rather than the Palmers Tummy Butter because the consistency of this made it much easier to spread around whereas the Tummy Butter was thick & difficult to work with. I've been using this Cocoa Butter for a few years now & still love it!
Mmmm,smells like hot cocoa mix:)
moisturizes well,cheap $4,smells lovely(wishes the scent would linger longer on the body tho)
I really like this product, I find it really moisturising and it smells lovely too. I have dry skin anyway and it seems to soften and smooth it nicely and leave it looking hydrated. The fragrance on my skin doesn't last very long though which is slightly annoying, having been a faithful user of the Soap and Glory Righteous Butter for so long I'm used to it staying on my skin for a while. I really love the smell of Palmer's too, so I wanted it to stay longer. But other than that, it's a good all round moisturiser and not too expensive either.
This product did not work for me at all, I have very dry skin that needs daily moisturizing and had high hopes for this, but it did absolutely nothing for me, was very dissapointed since this seems to work on EVERYONE, as a quick fixe while I searched for a better lotion, I purchased a $2 Suave cocoa butter lotion at wal-mart that worked better than this, also when I applied it to my skin it exuded a rancid smell instead of the famous chocolatey fragrance that everyone speaks of, the bottle was brand new and not expired, I don't know If I had a bad batch, but it did not work for me =(
i love this product, judging from other reviews so does everyone else. Its cheap & moisturising and smells divine! i cannot live without this product i have tried many moisturisers in my time but am always coming back to this one.
This is my go - to body lotion during Winter. When I walk out of the shower, I want a body lotion that will moisturize my dry skin and sink in as fast as possible so that I can slip into my pj's immediately!
This is an excellenct moisturizer ; rich and creamy with a smooth texture that's easy to apply and massage into your skin without leaving behind a greasy, sticky residue.
The scent of this is also quite pleasant and cozy. To me it smells like creamy cocoa, a little darker than milk chocolate. For the record, I am a chocolate lover and over the years I've tried out many body lotions and perfumes that smell like chocolate, but unfortunately, my chemistry didn't agree with them and I ended up smelling like cooking oil, ick! But luckily for me, Palmer's cocoa butter just keeps on smelling like yummy hot cocoa on me. ;-)
An absolute favorite during the colder months when your skin begs for a little pampering, smells gooooood and it's affordable. I'll definately repurchase.
This is the best lotion/cream I've ever tried on my body. It has definitely soften and toned my my skin. I spend a lot of time outdoor and in the sun and since a month ago my skin started becoming very dry and itchy (due to using a bad sunscreen that didn't work) After using Palmer's for two weeks, the dryness and itchiness stopped and even some of the scars on my legs have become less apparent. I was hesitant in buying it at first because of the smell (overly sweet and chocolaty), but the smell grew on me and now I barely notice it. It absorbs very well and does not feel greasy at all. I will continue to buy this product. Best lotion ever!
I have purchased this product in both the 8.5 oz bottle and the 3.5 oz jar. I should have paid closer attention to the ingredients, because they're not the same. I LOOOVE the cream in the bottle. It is smooth, creamy, and sinks in immediately. It is not particularly 'natural,' and i would certainly not try it on my face, but for the rest of my body, it's amazing. The cream in the jar, however, is much thicker and waxier. The ingredients list is completely different, as well. It still does the job, but it is very, very greasy and remains sticky on my skin long after it should have been absorbed. It also seems more strongly scented than the bottled cream. I have found that it makes a rather nice cuticle, elbow, and foot cream, however. The lotion in the bottle is absolutely HG, tho! <3
This is a great lotion/creme. Really very nice, looks like delicious custard and smells like sweet chocolate cake! Lol. It does make my skin noticeably more toned and even and does give it a glow. I have been getting a lot of compliments lately on how "beautiful" my skin looks. Yay =] the only reason i gave it 4 lippies though is due to a few ingredients..dimethicone, a silicone, and some artificial colors. But, these are at the end of the list so its not so bad. I like to tan in tanning beds so i use this every day to keep my skin young. I usually buy the kind of expensive lotions you get at the salons before you use tanning beds ..but i might try using this instead. It will be an experiment and I'll have to update.
Try this and you'll NEVER want to buy another cream! It's a little hard to find in Canada, but worth the search (Try London Drugs, most Shoppers' don't seem to have it). There are tons of cocoa butter products out there but this is the only one I would really recommend. I grew up using PURE shea butter (the lard-type stuff) and cocoa butter, and most other products that claim to use it aren't really that great and full of chemicals.
I'm usually an all-organic/natural/homemade kind of person when it comes to skincare. The ingredients list is not very frightening, so don't worry. Yes there are a few ingredients that aren't "great" but I'm not a total snob about it and it's impossible to completely avoid all the nasties! It smells awesome, not fake perfumey, so if you're sensitive to fragrance you should be able to use this. Goes on really nicely and absorbs right away - not greasy, and you can layer it on. It's great for after the shower or before bed, but my favourite is like the bottle suggests, right after being outside in the sun! It's cooling and soothing. I actually put this on BEFORE sun exposure.. No sunscreen.. And haven't had a sunburn all summer. I'm almost see-through light skinned.
Keep using this and you'll actually notice a difference in the appearance of your skin. My skin looks glowing and even in tone! I will sometimes use this on my face after cleaning (lightly, obviously... Just pat it on) and it's great. Makes a nice cuticle/nail cream, too.
Like I said, you'll never use anything else!
