I’m going to just jump right in and declare without shame that I’ve been using cocoa butter in some fashion for nearly my whole life. An influential woman in my life recommended cocoa butter as her go-to beauty treatment for night cream, moisturizing, make-up removal, and the diminishing of any manner of beauty flaw with consistent use. I’ve tried other products, but have always come back to my reliable ole friend: cocoa butter.
It’s hard to say which brand I prefer better between Queen Helene and Palmer’s, both formulas are affordable and consistent. Of all the formulas available on the shelf I tend to reach for the sort specific to stretch marks; the creamier the better. I want that thick cream, or hard butter, compared to the runny lotion. I could be wrong, but I feel like the more solid the product the longer the moisturizing benefit will last. Someone educate me on the proper science!
The humidity and endless summer conditions of Hawaii make it challenging to sport a full face of makeup each day. I still like to even out my skin tone, however, while still maintaining a dewy glow, so I mix a bit of cocoa butter with my foundation and treat it like a tinted moisturizer. I get a light even coverage of color along with the skin quenching benefits I’ve come to love from the consistent use of cocoa butter.
