Palmer’s is #1 stretch marks brand in USA and known to be used by pregnant ladies for keeping away the stretch marks. Stretch mark problem is probably there with every girl, it’s not that they appear only on women who are pregnant, even a teenage girl can get them. Not only this, they have other ranges also like lip care, hair care, baby care and more. I have a small pack of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion which I got with one of my fabbag 2-3 months back, keep reading to know what I have to say about this-Price- INR 425/- for 250ml, INR 545/- for 400ml (Mine is a 50ml pack)

This velvety soft formula absorbs quickly, creating a protective barrier that locks in moisture. From normal to dry to eczema prone skin, this emollient rich lotion effectively heals and softens, leaving skin smooth, supple and beautiful.Ingredients-My Take on Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion- I got a 50ml deluxe sized sample of it in my monthly subscription box service as I have already mentioned. I was happy to have got it because I always wanted to try on Palmer’s products for their hype all over the world. I love experimenting with body lotions, and I must admit that I’m having a good time using this one. It is yellowish in color and has a very sweet refreshing aroma. To be honest, it smells like Nestle Milkybar (yes! that’s the most closest thing I could find to compare it’s fragrance with 😛 ) . It has the goodness of Cocoa butter and Vitamin E. The label on the front says Paraben and Phthalate free which is a good news for those who look at ingredients list carefully. It’s consistency is on the thicker side, it takes little efforts and few extra seconds to get into skin, but the moisture it provides is totally outstanding which I truly didn’t expect from this body lotion. About the 24 hour moisture, I am not very sure because I take 2 showers a day. This lotion provides deep moisture for 12-14 hours on me and my skin doesn’t feel itchy or dry at all, I don’t feel the need of re-application thus. It doesn’t give me greasy or sticky feeling until I put it more than required 😛 .It manages well to keep winter dryness at bay for my dry skin, but it’s just not the right product for summers. We need extra-light formula for skin during scorching summers and this will not be apt for those times. The fragrance it has might not be preferred by light scent lovers, chocolate lovers will love the way how it smells 😀 . I have stretch marks but they are way too old, so couldn’t test its effectiveness on smoothening them.
I wish it came with SPF, it would have been an added benefit because these days brands have started including SPFs in their lotions. It contains mineral oil, so people who are allergic to it or get I am surely going to repurchase it. 🙂
Here’s a swatch-
Overall, a slightly high priced body lotion if compared to other body lotions in Indian market but totally worth the price. It softens my skin like a baby. A good choice to bid goodbye to winter dryness.
