Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Calming Lotion ★★★★★
About: Moisturising body lotion designed to soothe dry and sensitive skin. Packaged in a white plastic bottle with a flip-top lid.
Review: Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Calming Lotion is a gorgeous body lotion with a lightweight consistency. This hypo-allergenic lotion provides relief for irritated and sensitive skin types with its blend of pure cocoa butter, glycerine, urea, soy and oat. The formula also contains alpha hydroxy acids to gently exfoliate dry skin without irritating. Being paraben-free I was surprised that Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Calming Lotion rubbed into the skin so easily and was absorbed almost immediately without any oily or greasy residue. While Palmer's claims the body lotion is fragrance-free, I have noticed it has a very light scent, similar to the smell of plain soap and the scent lingers on the skin all day. After applying the lotion, I noticed that it left a light pleasant sheen on the skin. The effects of the lotion were immediate - from the very first application my skin felt cool (hence the “calming” property), hydrated and super soft. Hours later and my skin was still soft, smooth and appeared hydrated. I would generally describe my skin's condition as 'normal' with the odd dry patch and overall, Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Calming Lotion worked its magic on all areas of my skin so there was no need to apply two different moisturisers to my different skin types. For less than $10, this is a fantastic buy, especially seeing that Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Calming Lotion is paraben-free and suited to all skin types. I would happily purchase this product in future.
