Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Review

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Review

I’m not sure if it’s the Chicago water, weather, or a combination of both but my skin is not loving it. Over the past couple of weeks my skin has been dry and yucky like I didn’t think possible. I wake up in the morning and my hands are rough and flaky. My face looks like something out of the Thriller video and my skin feels like it is cracking open.

It’s like I’ve stepped into the seventh level of hell and have no way to moisturize!

I was eager and excited to try out a couple of products from Palmer’s (sent for review purposes) to see how they could improve my dry skin issues. The fact that Jennifer Love Hewitt is a spokesperson said a lot for me, her skin is amazing!

The products I tried were the Daily Skin Therapy and Skin Therapy Oil. Both of these are made with a cocoa butter formula. I have always loved using cocoa butter because it makes my skin feel so soft and delicate. What I wasn’t used to was the way the Daily Skin Therapy lotion smelled.

Oh. Em. Gee.

I seriously wanted to lick my skin after I put it on. It smells amazing, like fresh-baked chocolate. But it doesn’t stop there. The lotion is nice and thick and it rubs in perfectly without any oily/greasy nonsense left behind. My hands and legs feel amazing after I use it but my face isn’t as lucky. I would definitely suggest using this as a body moisturizer but if you have sensitive skin I wouldn’t suggest using it for your face.

Palmer‘s Cocoa Butter Formula – $5.50

Provide deep hydration all over with this velvety soft formula that locks in moisture leaving skin smooth, supple and beautiful!

Loved by Candice Swanepoel, Jennifer Lopez and Katy Perry!

The Skin Therapy Oil doesn’t have the same scent as the Daily Skin Therapy. It has a smell reminiscent of baby powder which is kind of weird because I would expect it to smell more like baby oil. Go figure.

Palmer‘s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil – $10.95

Perfect skin with this advanced multi-purpose product for all over the body use that helps to improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, dry and damaged skin, uneven skin tone and fine lines and wrinkles!

I have been using the oil on a daily basis, mainly when I get out of the shower. I have a yucky scar from my gallbladder surgery and the Skin Therapy Oil offers to help with that. I haven’t noticed any changes yet, but I’m not giving up! I am still hesitant about using it on my face even though the label states that as one of its suggested uses. It is formulated to help diminish stretch marks, scars, and uneven skin.

The label on the Skin Therapy Oil states that it is a stain free formula that doesn’t leave an oily residue behind. On first use this could seem misleading since there is, in fact, some oil left behind. This isn’t unusual though and if you’ve ever used any kind of skin oil you’ll understand. The oiliness absorbs and disappears within a couple of minutes and you can see an instant difference. The smell seems to fade away as the oil sinks in.

Both of these products are helping me combat dry skin and I know they’ll be sticking around for the harsh winter weather to come! You can find Palmer’s skin care products on their website.

Sonia Kashuk – Bath & Body GIft Sets

I absolutely adore gift sets. You get all of the necessities and sets are usually cheaper than buying each piece individually. Not only that, but gift sets make amazing presents for the holidays. Especially for last minute shoppers like me! I always end up getting at least one person on my list a gift set just for the fool-proof factor.

This year I’m excited to have been introduced to a new brand, Sonia Kashuk. There are 2 sets that I received for inspiration and I am loving them both so much. The first here is the Purple Seductia travel set. Pomegranate, rose and patchouli make this a sensual fragrance set that stands out. The scents are bold and flirty and subtlety isn’t the objective here.


The second set is the Red Promisia travel set. Sandalwood, jasmine and vanilla make this a earthy set that is not at all overpowering  I can see anyone liking this set as the subtle smell is suitable for even the more sensitive noses.


Both of these sets are available at Target! The best part – they are under $20 – well, $19.99 – but still under $20.00! They both come with a reusable carrying case that makes keeping the contents handy easy. Each set includes perfume, body butter, and shower gel in matching scents.


Just as awesome is the fact that these are just the right sizes for travelling with. That means they are a wonderful gift for the frequent flyers and nomads. And now my favorite thing to share – the good that Sonia Kashuk does.

Sonia Kashuk supports the following charities & organizations:

  • Cosmetic Executive Women, Inc. (CEW)
  • Cancer and Careers
  • The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (Sonia Kashuk is a breast cancer survivor!)
  • Target House

There are so many reasons to be a fan of Sonia Kashuk so be sure to connect with her on her social media channels. Also be sure to head over to Target to check out the Sonia Kashuk line and make someone happy this holiday season.
