Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E Body Lotion Review


Hi everyone,

Today I will review the body lotion from palmer’s which is their famous cocoa butter body lotion.  This is one product that I liked a lot after some time that also went into my favortie list, I am sure some of you might have also used it.  Go on to read the review of my impressions on it.



     £3.75 for 200 mL (≅ ₹ 370); Available online from

 Ingredients & About the Product:

Water, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Extract, Glyceryl Stearate, Petrolatum, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut Oil), Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum), Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Elaeis Guinneensis Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Dimethicone, Tocopheryl Acetate, Hydroxyethylcellulose, PEG-8 Stearate, Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Butylene Glycol, Stearalkonium Chloride, Cellulose, Sodium Acetate, Fragrance (Parfum), Phenoxyethanol, Sorbic Acid, Benzoic Acid, Stearyl Alcohol, Myristyl Alcohol, Yellow #5 (CI 19140), Orange #4( CI 15510),Benzyl Alcohol


      The lotion comes in a sturdy opaque plastic bottle which is travel-friendly.  The lotion is almost like a thick cream and so you have to squeeze the bottle well to get the product out especially when it is near to getting finished.  The lotion smells so nicely with cocoa butter scent like a pastry product thus feels edible but soothing and I just loved using in in winter as the scent was so relaxing.   But, some might not like the smell of this so much as they get a feeling of applying a chocolate or cocoa-based edible product like my husband.  I purchased this body lotion during my trip to the UK as Palmer’productsts are not available in Turku and I was so happy I got this.  This lotion was a delight to use during winters and kept my dry skin well nourished.  It also doubled up as a face cream and left my face intensely moisturized, plump and healthy looking.  My face skin also gets dry during winters and when I used it on the face one night it got absorbed immediately inspite of this thick texture and did not leave any greasiness.  So, I also used it in the morning and put my Lakme CC cream or Bourjois foundation and it applied well on the skin and at the end of the day, my skin did not feel any dryness or stretchy.  So, this became just an all round product for me as it suited my skin very well.  It will be heavy for summers but for the European fall and winter season this is really good.  This goes into my favorite list here, and I can keep on repurchasing it but the problem is I am not able to get this in Finland or then the shipping rates are high.  So, I am planning to buy it in big size either from India or through my friends in the UK or the USA during the next winter.  I am also very much impressed by Palmer’s Cocoa line that I am planning to try out few of their products also in the future.

Prettykooll rating: 4.5/5

I heard from some of my friends who have used Palmer’s products abroad that sometimes Palmer’s products that you buy online in India is not very good or near expiry or smells not so good, so getting a good genuine product is sometimes a challenge, but not always.

    I love this body lotion, it’s quite thick almost like a body butter but easier to blend in. My skin absolutely loves this.

    Cocoa butter sounds yumm! 😀 I used to think that Palmer’s body lotions must be really expensive, but 370/- isn’t a lot. 🙂 nice review!
