Pregnant & love it!! I also purchased the tub of cocoa butter, but when I am lazy & don't feel like getting greasy; the nights I seem to just fall into bed, I don't have to feel guilty... I just use this! Goes on very, very easy, & doesn't hurt my tummy to rub on. I don't think this is very greasy at all. The smell of the cocoa butter in the tub is like Cocoa Puffs, but this is very light. I also love that, at 31 weeks, this is the easiest way to get lotion on my legs. Haha. Wonderful!!

I was very skeptical when I purchased this as I prefer body butters for moisturization. I was looking for a Cocoa butter but due to the fact that I am pregnant and can't stand any smells/perfumes, I wanted something that isn't overpowering. The SA recommended this as its a stick and hence to use it only on the stomach (or trouble) areas. So I bought it and lets just say that I loveeee it. I use it only on my tummy area right now and it melts wonderfully onto my skin and yes, there is a cocoa smell but since its only concentrated in my stomach area, it isn't overpowering. (Btw, I generally love the Cocoa Body Butter). Anyway, it is the perfect product to provide intense moisturization to specific areas. it does leave a greasy film or feel but it doesn't bother me since I put it on and sleep overnight with it. I won't purchase this because the stickiness lasts even the next day until i take a shower.

Being from Canada where the Winters can be harsh on your skin, I thought I'd give this a try. I love the scent and I love the packaging - makes it so easy to get the cocoa butter where you need it. It isn't greasy at all and soaks right in giving you soft, smooth skin! I'll definitely repurchase - especially over the Winter months.

i've never tried anything like this before and when i saw it in the store I was like hm, interesting.
Well i bought it, and so far I like it. I perfer lotions rather than some sort of butter stick but this is really good, it melts onto your skin when you roll it on. And it really makes your skin soft and moisturized!
But i find it can be a little greasy.
Overall a little bit pricey compared to the normal lotions i get but i like it and its lasts a long time!

Love the stick applicator this product comes in!! That way i don't have to get my fingers all greased up. Could be more moisturizing though - 1 lippie off for that. Would repurchase - but i think this is discontinued :(

Got this recently on sale and love it! It's helping to heal my stretchmarks and it is so easy to apply. I'm not smelling chocolate or vanilla like other reviewers have commented. This has a light, inoffensive shea type smell. It's not foody in the least. This is a handy little stick. Sometimes I get really lazy and don't feel like using a body butter and this is so quick and easy to use. I love this because there's no mess or body butter to dig out from underneath my fingernails.

It's pretty grainy, thin, and a little greasy. Doesn't really do anything once it sinks in. Smells nice, though.

I don't understand why people're saying it's preventing strech marks?
Well, it did NOT AT ALL. I got one on sale several years ago and used it for about two months or so and stopped.
I tried to apply numerous times a day, after shower, when going to the bathroom and at night, it's greasy. and it leaves some fatty residues on your skin as my skin is not absorbing it well enough so it usually gets on to jeans too. the smell is ok, but I really don't like the package, the stick is easily contaminated and is drying. When I tried to reapply the product I scratch off the dry surface to let the bottom moist come up.

Even though I always seem to be buying body butters and lotions, I find myself never actually using them. I finally realized it was because I hated getting my hands greasy! This cocoa butter stick is exactly what I've been looking for. I can get the moisturizing elements of a butter and at the same time, not get my hands covered in greasiness. I don't smell the chocolatey scent everyone raves about but it's a very inoffensive shea smell so I don't mind. The stick is very handy to tote around and I won't have to worry about it melting on me. Hurrah!

I tried this at TBS, although I didn't end up buying it because I prefer their tub body butter. It seems like a really great product, but I think it might not be so great for cold climates. The store was kind of on the cold side, and the stick was really hard. It melted a little from my body heat when I rubbed it on my hand, but not enough to really get on my skin and moisturize. This is why I like their body butters better, although I will definitely consider getting this stick if I ever decide to have a baby or move to a warmer climate. It does smell fantastic, although the tester smelled exactly like an ice cream shop rather than cocoa or vanilla. I definitely have to give it props for its no-mess stick form and it would be a fantastic buy if you need to moisturize a bodypart but don't want to get any on your hands. It's also a good point that it won't spill, unlike carrying around a tube or bottle of liquid cocoa butter, but it's huge so it's pretty darn bulky- easier to carry the travel size body butter, which is also spill-resistant.

I thought that this is quite a brilliant idea, as I am the type of person who hates getting greasy hands from applying body lotion. It is very convenient, and the smell is absolutely wonderful. I find it suitable for late summer and autumn, might switch to the cocoa butter during the harsher winter times.

The three lippies are purely for the scent. This chocolatey/vanilla scent is soooo yummy, i wish they made everything in this scent. However, as a moisturiser for my dry skin, it absolutely sucks. Did nothing for my skin, in fact it made it even my dry and scaley. Would buy it again just for the scent.

Ok now this doesn't smell anything like chocolate, i dont know where everyone gets that from. It doesn't stink or anything, but i dont know what it smells like. I use this only on my shoulders cause they seem to get alot of sun damage, i think its making the skin alot softer but i haven't been using it very long, so i will keep u updated. So far i love it.

Wow I bought this a few weeks ago and i LOVE this, it smells like chocolate, is not messy, wont spill in your purse, it does a really really good job moisurizeing. This is one of my favorite products right now. I bought them for all my friends. I carry it with me everywhere I go and use it on my knees and elbows, and my shoulders cause they are always in the sun. I also use in on my stomach sometimes just so i can go to bed smelling like chocolate.

I got this when I was 2 months pregnant, it worked great. I didn't get a single stretch mark, and my entire family has them. I would highly suggest buying this as soon as you find out you are pregnant. It melts with your body heat, but it can be a bit greasy, I would use before going to bed.

I like the concept, although I fail to see the point. I have dry skin but not that dry. It is too hard, and I think would hurt severly dry skin, making it not a good product to use! I tried it on my feet and although it worked on my heels, it is not worth the trouble. Give me traditional lotion anyday over this chunk o butter

A tattoo artist recommended cocoa butter for tattoo care when your skin felt dry, so I went straight to TBS. This is the perfect moisturizer for when you don't want the hassle of lotion. It's portable and not slippery or greasy feeling. A bit on the expensive side but the quality, package and delicious scent is worth it.

I love the whole TBS cocoa butter line. I bought this when I first found out I was pregnant and have been using it for 2 months' now. I don't actually believe it does anything for strech marks, it's more like a small treat to myself, the smell is to die for, plus it provides a good moisture to the skin! I really enjoy using this product and find the packaging very convinient. I would not however use it as an antri-stretch marks' product (there are plenty of specific products out there for that).

I adore this, it's one of my can't-live-without-it staples. The scent is the most lovely chocolate, sophisticated and warm with vanilla yumminess underneath. Won't spill in my purse, either! None of the ickiness that usually comes with fake chocolate scents; nope, this is good stuff! Delicious-smelling, great moisturization, an all-around perfect product. Just wish it were a tad cheaper! Oh well, it's worth every penny. I'll keep buying this as long as they keep making it. Palmer's and Cococare make great products, but TBS's cocoa butter stick is simply more dreamy and lovely.

I used this on my belly when I was pregnant. I know it worked to prevent stretch marks because, being a naive first time mom, I only applied this to my belly and nowhere else. Well I never got stretch marks on my belly but I did get them 'elsewhere'!. This melts with your body heat and smells great too.
