Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E Concentrated Cream

Happy Friday!

Since I started blogging, I noticed that I've acquired quite a number of lotions and moisturizers. It's actually funny how a girl who couldn't care less to put lotion on before now has different kinds and brands of moisturizer!
But then again, you can never have too much of that stuff! ;)

I try to rotate what I keep on my bedside table, and right now one of the creams I have is:

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E Concentrated Cream


Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Concentrated Cream, made with Pure Cocoa Butter and enriched with Vitamin E in a soothing emollient base, heals and softens rough, dry skin, smoothes marks and scars and tones skin. It is an excellent all-over-the-body moisturizer and after tanning butter and is especially ideal for hands, elbows and knees. Apply immediately following exposure to the sun and wind.

Available sizes:
3.75 oz
2.1 oz

Price: around $4, depending on where you buy it

I think we all know that cocoa butter works wonders on skin. And when you say cocoa butter, Palmer's is definitely one of the best brands out there.

I love this lotion. It goes on smoothly and skin absorbs it quickly. It makes my skin soft and smooth. It moisturizes really really well! Use this on your dry spots -- it works great!

You can use this to moisturize your whole body or just save it for stretch marks, knees, elbows, hands, feet... it's up to you.

I use it before I sleep to soften my hands and feet. And of course, to lighten stretch marks.

It is concentrated, so make sure to not get more than you need.

It is affordable and handy -- keep it on your bedside table or toss in your bag and bring it with you anywhere.

I don't think there's anything negative I can say about this except maybe to not use it when it's extremely hot because you will sweat, haha! ;)

  1. Thanks for the review! I agree with you, this is not a summer cream but it does work great on dry skin. I also like the scent, sweet and warm.:D

    I have my BBW's Aromatherapy Sleep products on my bedside table.:D

    Happy weekend!

  2. Marie-- sweet and warm are such good words to describe this lotion! and yeah, it's perfect for winter. ;) i love bbw's aromatherapy products, btw!

  3. I've never heard of this brand and the combination
    of cocoa butter and vitamin E is really good for the skin!

    I'm also someone who never really puts on lotion =p
    but I've been taking care of my feet the past 2 years
    because I always wear heels XD I take care of my hands
    once in a while during the winter because they crack
    when they're dry :(

    $4 is really cheap and affordable!
    I wonder if we have this in Canada

  4. Peiji-- i knooow, those are amazing for our skin! i really hope this is available in canada, it's really amazing especially for cold weather. :)

  5. You can't go wrong with cocoa butter. It's definitely my go to lotion. I love how this is travel size. Perfect for roadtrips. ;)

    Lots of love, B

  15. Diane-- i'm glad to know it really helps lessen stretch marks! i've been trying to decide whether or not it does. ;)
