the thing is i absolutely love what this body balm does to my skin , i have the olive body balm but i cant get over the smell!!!
it smells like mortein or something like that, for an organic product the fragrance is very unpleasant and should be fragrance free or very subtle, my partner wont allow me to put this on , he says it smells horrible,and i cant handle the smell either, eeeekkkkkk.
Review is for the new Concentrated Cream. I love this stuff. I like the smell, and it feels like it should be working. Not olive-y at all. Plus no mineral oil, which many Palmer's products contain! Great for rough skin anywhere.
If you have trouble finding this, it might be because Palmer's gets relegated to the "Ethnic" section a lot. Brooklyn's Fulton Mall has every conceivable permutation of their products, check in any of the beauty supply stores. Or you can buy your shea butter on the street there! It's a fun adventure even if you're not looking for Palmer's. Fulton Mall is like the African / Caribbean / Central American discount beauty supply Mecca. Especially good for hair products. Or you can buy a gold-plated grill or bootleg kung fu movies! In a few years it will be torn down for more of Bruce Ratner's dystopian corporate vision for Downtown Brooklyn, so get your authentic experience while you can.
I received a trial size bottle of this in the mail and I love it! I have dry skin and a lot of other lotions burn when I put them on right after I have shaved-this is one of the few that does not burn and it stops that super tight feeling that my skin has where I feel like my skin is going to split right at the shins.
I got this as a sample in Allure magazine and putting out samples was the best thing Palmer's could have done in my opinion! I am a cosmetics snob and am drawn to products based on advertising and their packaging (I know, shallow!) Anyway, I heard of several stars using Palmers, but due to the packaging, I swiftly passed it in in the local grocery store aisles. However, after trying several formula samples, I have found this to be a really good brand and had I not known that it was Palmer's, the lotions could be mistaken for L'Occitane. I will definitely start buying different lotion formulations from them, but will hide them in prettier pump bottles and I guess it will just be my little secret!
I love this! Feels so nice on my hands and feet. I have the worst dry hand and heels. I would repurchase this.
I'm guessing there is more than one version of this? Anyway I am on my 3d or 4th bottle of the stuff (with Vit E) and I LOVE it! It has a faint but pleasant smell and it absorbs nicely. The best part is I have the softest, smoothest skin I could ever hope for.
This is a very good lotion. I don't find the scent problematic. It moisturizes well and absorbs quickly.
I LOVE THIS MOISTURIZER, I was born 2 months premature and I have always had dry skin on my body because I was in an incubator for about half a year after my birth. NOTHING has gotten rid of my dry skin like this has without making it greasy!
This lotion leaves my skin feeling extremely soft with no greasiness. It sinks in quickly and moisturizes all day! The smell of it does not bother me at all and most lotion scents bother me... A lot of posters have talked about the scent- I found it to be light and not overpowering at all. Cheap, moisturizing and not smelly!
I bought this lotion at Walmart. It comes with GWP olive concentrated cream. To be honest, both of them smell so chemical and fake. And they add color in this lotion which is not necessary. I don't like the smell and color, and the quality is just ok. Though the price is cheap, I won't buy again. My husband suggest me throw it away because he can't not stand the smell. I agree.
