...I smell like a human chocolate bunny...
When I read the reviews, I had no idea just how chocolately this smelled. I sniffed it in the store and was pleased by it, but I will say: it is intense! Not for the faint of...nose. I see a lot of people put off by smells in products, and if you have a fussy nose, do not buy this formula! It is good they have a fragrance-free version, but I will repurchase the Hershey syrup; I kinda like it. lol
Anyway, more importantly, this stuff is nice. Softening, thick, feels moisturizing. It lingers on the hands a while, and needs to be rinsed off, but overall this is a great lotion. I will update to see if it improves my skin tone at all (not really looking for that, just a nice lotion) or if I see any changes. Good product!
EDIT: I put this lotion on at 8pm yesterday. Today, by nearly 3pm, I still smell like chocolate. Unreal! lol
7/20/11: Oohhhh my skinnn! It's so beautiful and soft, I suspect this will fade my old stretch marks a bit, I am noticing them less after only two uses; no lie.
Very good moisturiser! I suffered from a period of pityriasis rosacea, a very itchy skin rash that has no apparent cause and goes away after couple of weeks. This was the only moisturiser that managed to ease the itchiness during that period. I still use it now, it makes my skin nice and smooth. I use the fragrance free one, can't bear the smell of the cocoa, smells like puke to me over time. The fragrance free pump version can be found on iherb at a great price.
Best moisturiser I've ever used! Smells gorgeous - just like chocolate! Makes your skin look and feel really smooth and gives a nice glow. It's not tested on animals either so overall a really great product!
I've been using this for over a year and I use it all over my body, including face.
I know that people will say that you shouldn't because it might be to heavy for your face, but I used it anyway, so you can't exactly do much about it now lol.
I have a really oily t-zone and acne prone skin, this stuff doesn't give me breakouts, but it doesn't stop my oily skin, but it doesn't make it worse either.
I just wanna say that I really do like this stuff.
It does smell like chocolate too, but I guess it depends on who you are, because my friend said it smells like fake/cheap chocolate but I got her into using it hah.
I started getting this stuff because I use to wear my bra to bed and I noticed I had these marks on the side under my arms from wearing it all the time, and I thought this stuff would get rid of it, and it has! After 3-4 months those marks are gone! I thought that because they were so dark I would never get rid of them, but this helped.
Overall this is good stuff! It melts so easily onto your skin, is a good moisturiser, contains vitamin e, and evens out my skin tone a bit.
Rich and creamy, a little goes a long way and leaves skin feeling buttery soft. The scent is heavenly, and fades to a faint candy/chocolate aroma. I've tried many more expensive and organic lotions; this is my go-to product from now on.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this lotion. I love it's smell and I love how it softens my skin! It also helped my stretchmark turn from red to a lighter color that's closer to my skin tone!
Unfortunately I haven't seen it in stores/pharmacies and only the baby's formula has been on the shelves, so I'm using that now!
I only bought this today. but love it!
I noticed a lot of people don't like this product because of the smell, but their is a fragrance free one! slightly more expensive
I used it on my hands straight after I bought it and did the mistake of putting way too much on, so my hands where really slippy, around two hours ago I put a tinny amount on and it worked a treat! I cant help but rub my hands together! silky smooth softness!
I tested the product out on one hip when I got home, just to see how fast it absorbed and if it gave that sticky feeling. No sticky feeling and absorbed really quick.
I compared how both of my hips felt and you can really feel the difference!
I will do another review in a few weeks to tell you guys how i got on!
I love Palmers. I love this product. I really like it's thick creamy texture (it adsorbs quite quickly considering) and the smell. Just using it once off in winter when my legs are dry makes them nice and soft again without that awful white dead cold skin look.
Bought a once off Cosmo magazine a month ago and got a free sample...... Horrible!
I applied this to my legs when I woke up for college and it was a bad day! The smell alone turned my off my breakfast and lingered on my hands after vigerous washing :(
It was sticky, thick and did not dry in well!
my jeans were stuck to me all day, the smell came with me everywhere and just put me in bad mood.
Glad I did not buy a full bottle!
Really would not recommed at all to anyone
I absolutely ADORE this! Recently, due to it being winter in Australia, I became really slack with moisturising my body because I was too cold to do it (I know, silly, right?), but then my legs broke out with ingrown hairs galore and my thighs looked awful. So I thought I'd grab my trusty cocoa butter. Well, it's been a week of using it twice a day and all the red marks are completely gone and my skin is looking and feeling great! I love how smooth and soft this product makes your skin feel. I also LOVE the scent! I just want to eat it up. :) The only issue I have with this is the bottle... I find that even though there's quite a large amount of butter left, the pump wont get it out. Oh well, I still adore this stuff!
