I found this at the dollar general to use on a new tattoo. the tattoo artist said to use cocoa butter or unscented lotion and everything else I saw was scented or had alcohol, which makes it sting and isnt good for a new tatoo, so i bought this and i love it. Its easy to apply just rub it on and thats it.

this stick is really good for healing stretch marks. i got stretch marks on my chest in between the girls as a teenager because i was "growing". after a few years of being sick of being able to see these stretch marks when i wore bikinis, i saw this and bought it because it was 100% pure cocoa butter in a convenient easy-to-apply solid stick. i used it religiously on said stretch marks twice a day everyday for about 2 months, and now you can hardly tell they were even there! and it's been about 5 years since this treatment and they are still not visible (though I can still kinda feel them). this stuff also makes an excellent lip butter for really dry or chapped lips. i'd recommend this product to those who have mild - moderate stretch marks and want to visibly reduce their appearance. [I also have deeper stretch marks on my inner thighs and tried this product on them, but it didn't make as much of a drastic difference (though it did help a little); that's why I recommend it for mild - moderate stretch marks].

This is wonderful stuff. Can use this on chapped feet, lips, cold sores, elbows....(of course, different sticks, lol).
The smell is chocolate-y, an added bonus as just the smell satisfies the chocolate craving and I do not have to gobble my daily quota of chocolate *candy*.
Never really tried this on wrinkles or fine lines, etc so I dunno about that aspect of this magic stick.
Packaging is also okay, for the price.

I picked this up at Dollar General some time ago. I kinda forgot about it until the other day. I don't know why I didn't use it until now. I really love it. The stick form makes it really nice and convenient to use as a lip balm. For like a buck, you can pick one of these up and it will last you forever. In fact, I plan to get a few more tomorrow!

There's been this weird dry, semi-scaly, slightly itchy patch on my leg; my body lotion doesn't seem to have much an effect on it. I started using this product on that dry patch, also on my knees where I have a scar and a stretch mark.
The cocoa butter stick worked pretty well on the dry patch. It's almost all gone now (after almost 2 months or so of rigorous application?). As for the scars and stretch marks, I haven't seen any noticeable change. Not that I was really expecting any miraculous healing power...
The product is very greasy upon application (which makes me skeptical about using it on the face), though it absorbs readily. I also tried using it as lip balm, but that didn't work out for me.
Like other reviewers noted, the packaging leaves much to be desired; probably why it's so cheap. Personally, I just find the stick form too much of a hassle to use, so, while it might be a good moisturizer---and I'm glad it got rid of that annoying dry, scaly patch---I'd rather just stick with lotion.

My twin sister and I used cocoa butter all throughout high school and our early 20's before eventually switching to shea butter. Cocoa butter kept our skin supple, but oily. There was minimal fading of dark spots (hyper pigmentation) and stretchmarks, so it was nothing remarkable. In a pinch Cocoa butter is great for moisturizing after washing your face at night. It is a staple in my home after all these years for moisturizing my daughter's face.I have it on hand just in case I'm run out of shea..

I love the moisturizing qualities of 100% cocoa butter. It sinks in fast compared to other base oils and it keeps my skin feeling moist for a long time. It's my favorite thing for healing cracked lips and gardener's hands. The aroma is lovely. The packaging could be improved upon, but the price is right.

I bought this at the drugstore because an east coast winter plus a cold has turned my skin into scales. I've always liked the cocoa butter lotion, but I never realized that this smells like CHOCOLATE! It seems to be a great moisturizer, but the packaging is so cheap that I'd hate to put this in my purse for fear it would melt all over everything. But for a dollar, I'll put up with it.

Really great moisturizer for the price about $1.25 a tube. Smells really good. Only use for my skin. Just make sure you don't leave in a hot area because it will melt quickly. Can be oily at first but it does go away and moisturize the skin and the smell goes away. Its great that its 100% natural and not any mineral oil in it.

Definitely will repurchase again.
Perfect for my lip balm since it melts and oily and doesn't left any white residue on my lips. I t become soft and supple. I use it for my stretch marks but haven't got any results since i rarely use it. Very moisturizing and smells great too.
Too bad I can't use it on my face since I broke easily.
Plus the packaging is very ugly but I only care for the package as long it works so I give them a big 5.

Its a nice cocoa butter product in what I call a cute not necessarily convenient packaging. Can be used on elbows & knees, not yet tried it on my lips or anything. Just melted solid cocoa butter & applied it all over & it was great. I am thinking of buying this if I want to use cocoa butter in the pure form in some homemade recipies although I hear that it may not be 100 % cocoa butter. Anyways overall an okay product if one is into cocoa butter.

I love devouring dark chocolates, so of course, I am enamored with the scent. It is pretty moisturizing when you rub it onto your skin. Nevertheless, the one thing that I really do not like about this is that it is quite hard to melt onto your skin (it does melt quite easily onto your lips though), unlike coconut oil. This would make a great lip balm or elbow/knees moisturizer. It just doesn't work well as a face/body moisturizer, because the rock-solid consistency makes the stick drag your skin down, which is not good. So, back to coconut oil I go. Personally, I would probably buy cocoa butter again, just not in a stick form.

This works so well and it's dirt cheap! Plus this cocoa butter stick smells just like chocolate.

Iím surprised at how different Queen Heleneís 100% cocoa butter is from Cococareís100% cocoa butter.
I got the Cococare from walgreens for 59c because they are not going to carry it in the store any longer, and the Queen Helene was from the dollar general for just over a buck.
The first thing I noticed was the smell was different on them, with queen heleneís smelling stronger, which I donít get since they are supposed to be the same thingÖ
Cococare seems to be a little harder than the qhís and it seems much better for skin than for lips as its not to moisturizing or long lasting on the lips, I still have my favorites for lips that these canít replace,lol :)
I can easily use both on my face, hands, cuticles, wherever, and they will sink in, but I usually use it lips or dry spots.
Qhís goes on a little smoother, and melts faster, with cococareís I feel like I have to rub it more, or on my hand to start up the melting.
I would definitely keep buying the queen helene one since cococare isnít being sold at the walgreens by me anymore.

I love this! It smells like chocolate, of course, and is a great moisturizer.

This stuff is great I bought it for about $2.00 at Riteaid. I put it on my hands, elbows, knees, and ankles. I even use it on my lips and under eyes when they get dry. I recommend buying more than one.

I love everything but the packaging. Maybe they could do a twist tube like chapstick?
I keep mine in my car which keeps it warm this time of year. I apply it to rough spots as I sit in traffic or at stop lights.
If it isn't warmed up it doesn't seem to soak in very well, so find a way to warm before using.
UPDATE: Uh oh! After 90+ degree heat the other day, my stick melted out into the cupholder in my car. Don't leave in car in weather like that!

I looooove this stuff! It smells exactly like chocolate, which isn't surprising. I use it mainly on my elbows, which are dry and rough. It makes a huge difference. It's cheap, portable and lasts a long time. A no brainer beauty staple for me.
