Palmer's Cocoa Butter Skin & Bodycare Review

Palmer's Original Cocoa Butter has been the only body lotion that I've used for as long as I can remember. I love their cocoa butter formula above all others, from the deep moisturizing properties to the yummy scent. After trying out more from the line instead of just one favorite product I have about 10 :) From individual targeted body products, skin oil, even a hair masque. A huge portion of my lotions and potions this Winter have been from Palmer's. Now that the weather's warming up it is the perfect time to get your skin Spring wardrobe ready.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Firming Butter
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Firming Butter, a unique formula that is specifically designed to restore your body to its natural, original firmness any time, even after pregnancy or weight loss.  The unique combination of Cocoa Butter, Collagen, Elastin and Shea Butter firms and tones while maintaining skin elasticity and texture.  In addition, Ginseng and Vitamin E help soften and relieve stressed skin.  Co Enzyme Q10 is an antioxidant that helps smooth and revitalize skin.

It wasn't easy to make the switch from my beloved original cocoa butter formula to the firming butter but I'm happy I did. Firming Butter has a lighter cocoa butter scent than the original and it's not as heavy. As I lose weight firming my skin has become very important. After finishing up this bottle I see a definite difference in the firmness in my skin. Being not as heavy of a moisturizer the Firming Butter is a great moisturizer for Spring/Summer months. It's like an Anti-Aging lotion for the body.

Palmers Cocoa Butter Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Rapid Moisture Spray Lotion provides deep moisture in an instant. This non-greasy formula sprays on easily and our RapidSorb® Technology allows for quick absorption, leaving skin soft and smooth with 24 hour moisturization. Paraben & Phthalate Free.

Rapid Moisture is one of the newest products in the line. A spray lotion that works just like you've applied a cream lotion. For those days when you don't have time to apply your body lotion a spray is nice to have. Give it a quick spray and you're done. Rapid Moisture sinks right in and doesn't feel greasy so you can get dressed right away. They also have a spray lotion for stretchmarks and skin oil.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion For Stretch Marks
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Massage Lotion helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks with a special blend of pure Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Bio C-Elaste®. Bio C-Elaste® is a powerful combination of Collagen, Elastin, Centella Asiatica, Sweet Almond Oil and Argan Oil.  This non-greasy, all over body lotion helps improve elasticity and suppleness of stretching skin during and after pregnancy.  Also recommended for stretch marks associated with weight fluctuations.

The stretch mark lotion resembles the original formula but has a weird medicinal scent. I'm assuming it is from the extra special ingredients in this one. Nothing I can't tolerate, I just don't prefer the scent as much. The lotion itself is moisturizing and firming. Cocoa butter is known to help reduce the appearance of stretch marks and this formula targets the issue even more. I don't have any new stretch marks so I wasn't able to test it that way, but I applied it to my older ones and my skin tone did show improvement. I plan on keeping this around in the future for my baby belly. I still prefer the original cocoa butter to this one though.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Bust Firming Cream
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Bust Cream is a specially formulated cream that glides on like a gel. It will firm and tone your bust area even after pregnancy and weight loss.  Made with a unique blend of pure Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and Vitamin E, to maximize your skin's moisturization, while Collagen, Elastin and other proven ingredients help support the skin around the bust area and increase tone and firmness.

I probably never would have bought this in the store because well it's a little embarrassing!  I will be happily embarrassed now. Bust Cream is specifically formulated for the bust to tone and moisturize your bust area. The cream is barely scented, and you only need a pea size to moisturize with. Just like all Palmer's moisturizers this sinks right in with a velvety soft feel. As weird as this will sound, I love how my girls feel after applying this cream. It really makes your skin feel firmer and keeps everything soft and moisturized.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Lotion Swivel Stick
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick provides on-the-spot help for marks and blemishes and is ideal for touch-up moisturizing on face and body.  Also may be used to moisturize and soothe dry, cracked, chapped lips. This stick formula is wonderful for keeping in your purse or on the night stand. It quickly eliminates and soothes any dry skin and is an excellent as a lip balm.

Palmer's Coconut Oil Protein Pack
This moisture-intensive treatment is perfect for when your hair is in need of more than just your daily conditioner. Deeply nourishing Coconut Milk and Coconut Oil replenish moisture and restore high-gloss shine while Keratin and Silk Proteins help to strengthen and repair weak, fragile or damaged hair. Suitable for: damaged, processed, color treated or natural hair. Free of Sulfates, Parabens, Phthalates and Dyes.

Trying a hair product from Palmer's never crossed my mind, but this one with Coconut Oil peaked my interest. Coconut Oil is an amazing oil, I often use it in the pure form on my hair as an overnight treatment. I would have paid a lot more for this protein pack. It is a protein treatment that not only builds strength but leaves your hair feeling soft and silky at the same time. I was able to get a good 5 uses out of this one pack and will be repurchasing. I only wish it came in a tub! Such a phenomenal product for putting strength and softness back in to your hair and less than $5.

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil Face
Transform your skin with a powerful blend of 10 pure precious oils, Retinol, Vitamin C and our exclusive Cetesomate-E® Complex. Skin restorative oils along with natural Cocoa Butter, Retinol and Vitamin C deliver multi-purpose, anti-aging skin benefits.

Ten Pure Oils help moisturize and smooth fine lines and wrinkles while Retinol and Vitamin C help improve and brighten tone and texture.

Skin looks younger-looking with a more glowing and firm appearance.
Hypoallergenic - Paraben Free - Phthalate Free - Dermatologist Tested

Skin Oils have become all the rage in skincare. Argan, Jojoba, Coconut, you name it. So why not Cocoa Butter. Except this goes way beyond that and contains 10 oils along with Retinol and Vitamin C. Normally I would have to use these products separately so having one loaded oil like this and for this price is fantastic.

Not having dry skin I was a little hesitant to try this oil. No need for hesitation as this oil isn't too heavy for my combination skin and doesn't cause breakouts. The effects mimic what Cocoa Butter does for the body. Moisturized, evened tone, and a non-greasy feel. The oil has a rosehip scent, which I don't love, but it dissipates. The oil sinks in quickly and gives your skin a soft glow so you can use it under makeup. I get the same effect from this as I do Tarte's Maracuja Oil which is $50! Palmers Skin Therapy Oil is only $13. I will definitely be alternating this with my other skincare oils and serums. Really amazing skin oil and you can get it right at the drugstore.

 Looking forward to trying the Palmers Eventone Suncare line with SPF come Summer :)
