Pros: nice scent, reduces red marks and scars, smoothes and softens skin, very moisturizing

Rich and luxurious, this body lotion from skin care experts Palmer’s is a must-have item in my skin care regimen. Offering deep moisturization, without leaving any sticky or greasy residue, this body lotion is one of the best on the market.


Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula is available in a squeeze bottle, and a pump bottle. Featured in this review is the pump bottle version of the product, which holds an impressive 400ml. The product’s packaging is chic, but simple. It features Palmer’s signature brown, white, blue and orange colors.

Formulation and Application

Rick and creamy, the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Body lotion has a beautifully moisturizing formulation. It has a fairly thick consistency that feels beautiful on the skin. The lotion, which contains no parabens, feels incredibly creamy and smoothing when applied. While thick, the lotion melts into the skin easily.

To apply the product, you simply press down onto the pump, and press the lotion onto your hands. Application is a joy, as the product simply glides over the skin. You only need a small amount of the body butter, as a little goes a long way.The product’s scent is also gorgeous. It has a chocolate fragrance, which smells delightful.


Soothing, moisturizing and incredibly rich, the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter formula leaves your skin feeling soft, smooth and supple. According to the product’s packaging, the lotion smoothes marks and scars, and tones your skin. This is completely true of the product. It reduces any redness on the skin, and it also reduces the appearance of scars.

In terms of wearability, the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion is fantastic. After just one application, you skin is left feeling soft, smooth and hydrated for the whole day. It truly does provide you with 24 hour moisturization.

One of the best aspects of this lotion is that it’s fast absorbing too. Unfortunately, most moisturizing body butters tend to take too long to absorb into the skin, and they leave a greasy residue behind. The cocoa butter lotion absorbs quickly, leaving behind no greasy residue.

    I am not familiar with Palmers products, but this item got my attention because of the cocoa butter formula with Vitamin E. Cocoa butter has proven to give wonders to the skin and the same goes with Vitamin E. Read more

    I started using Palmers quite a few years ago, and I have tried several other products, but I always come back to this. It smells divine to start with, it's chocolatey but not too sweet and sickly. Read more
