Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Balm
Advantages: Easy to use, works well, makes my lips soft & supple, helps with healing.
Palmers Cocoa Butter is a small range of products that are designed to stop premature ageing of the skin. This particular lip balm contains SPF15 to keep skin protected during the warmer days (if they ever return!) and the balm also protects against chapped, cracked or wind-burned lips. This is something that I definitely suffer from and despite the fact that I take care of my lips and use a scarf on the walk to work over the bottom of my face I still suffer. It is the cocoa butter within this balm that really helps my lips the most and it works well with the added Vitamin E to help sore and chapped lips.
This balm comes in quite a standard tube really and you just pull off the lid and then twist the bottom to make the balm go up or down in the tube. This is straight forward to use and means that when I need some more I can just twist it up and I can also twist it back down when I am putting the lid back on. This is just standard packaging really, it is functional and simple to use. When first purchased this is on a blister card hanging up in the supermarket. this is a little over the top I always feel but then I guess it would be difficult to just have these lying around individually as a) people might steal them easily and b) it'd take forever to stock check them.
When it comes to actually using this that also is very simple. I just remove the top, twist it up and then run it across my lips. I do not need to use a brush or anything else with this so it takes just seconds to apply and is simple too. This lip balm is a nice creamy consistency and it smells quite sweet and delicate. As I spread this across my lips it applies smoothly and with ease. There are no clumps released from this balm and it makes me feel like my lips are protected from the moment that I apply it. This balm is wonderfully soft on my lips and within minutes it makes my lips feel softer and more supple. This doesn't really have a taste at all but this is not a problem for me as flavoursome lip balms tend to be off putting for me. There is no greasy feeling to this lip balm either despite the inclusion of cocoa butter and this is just fantastic for me.
This is a lip balm that leaves my lips feeling absolutely fantastic. Within about 10 or 15 minutes of wearing this my wind burned or chapped lips are relieved extremely and within just a day or so of re-applying this several times a day my lips were back to perfect condition and feeling amazing too. My lips feel moisturised after using this and even one use is enough to stop my chapped lips from feeling so sore and start them healing for me.
I love that this is simple to just put in to the zip pocket at the front of my handbag. I can locate it in just seconds when needed and this lip balm is ideal for the Winter months when I am walking to work in the cold. This works fantastically well at moisturising lips and repairing damage caused at times when I have not been using this for whatever reason. Sometimes I forget to apply this and then notice that my lips are sore once it is too late and they have become dry and cracked once again. Just a day or so using this repairs that damage and my lips look full, moisturised and fantastic again in next to no time. My lips look glossy and well cared for when I am wearing this lip balm and I like to know that my lips are soft and kissable for my husband when we see each other after a day or two of working different hours.
I really feel that this lip balm is absolutely fantastic. It doesn't have a nasty taste or an overpowering smell at all which is fantastic and the cocoa butter makes my lips feel absolutely fantastic. I would firmly recommend this lip balm and I am rating it 5/5. The price is fantastic and I will definitely continue to use this lip balm during this cold snap we are having to keep my lips protected, moisturised and looking fantastic too.
Summary: A fantastic product from Palmers.
