Palmer's Lotion - Review (And a Giveaway)

Are you looking for a skin care line that is affordable and works wonderfully? Well I would like to introduce you to Palmers. Now I am sure some of you are familiar with the Palmers brand, they have been around for 50 years. But for those who are not familiar with Palmers, here is a little info from the website:

E.T. Browne Drug Company is one of the longest standing proprietors of skin and hair care products in the United States.  The company has been family owned since the middle of the nineteenth century and has been under the current ownership since 1971. E.T. Browne Drug Company has been headquartered in New Jersey for over 50 years.

Under the current ownership, the revolutionary brand Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula was created and introduced to the world. Since that time Palmer’s has expanded on its vast knowledge and heritage, developing brand ranges such as Skin Success, Shea Butter Formula, Olive Butter Formula, Coconut Oil Formula, Olive Oil Formula and Hair Success. These brands give E.T. Browne a strong presence in important market segments such as skin care, pregnancy, skin fade care, and hair care. Palmer’s has a global presence; available in over 80 countries offering the #1 Cocoa Butter brand in the world. This unique heritage and commitment to quality has stood the test of time, making Palmer’s a trusted household name, used by families for generations.  
My Review:

Yes Palmer s has been around for fifty years, but I had no idea that they had such a vast line of items. I knew they made a great Cocoa Butter lotion but they have so much more than just the hand lotion.  I was so very fortunate to be able to review the entire line of Palmer's, it took me a few weeks to really get a good review of each of the products.

I will have to start out with my favorite of all the products

Palmers Night Renewal cream:

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Night Renewal Cream. a deep penetrating anti-aging skin treatment, is loaded with beneficial targeted ingredients: Cocoa and Shea butters to moisturize, Retinol to encourage skin renewal, Peptides to support skin's structure,  and Evening Primrose to sooth stressed skin.  The unique structures of these ingredients penetrate deep into skin’s layers for visible results over time. 

I loved the ease of use of this product. I used it before bedtime, and it went on smoothly and did not feel greasy, and after using it for a while I have seen a difference in the feel of my skin. It seems to be getting smoother. What a wonderful product!

Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick:
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick provides on-the-spot help for marks and blemishes and is ideal for touch-up moisturizing on face and body.  Also may be used to moisturize and soothe dry, cracked, chapped lips.

This will be a great travel item, I carry so many things in my purse all the time, and it is great when I have compact items that are useful. This little swivel stick is just the right size and it has 30 SPF. So I will be sure to pack this for our trip to Disney World next June!

Cocoa Butter Formula Lotion –

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion, made with pure Cocoa Butter, enriched with Vitamin E, in a soothing emollient base, heals and softens rough, dry skin, smoothes marks and tones skin.  An excellent all-over-the-body moisturizer and after tanning butter.  Also available in a fragrance free formula.

Now this is what I think of when I think of the Palmers brand, I have used this in the past on my dreaded stretch marks  and I have seen then lighten, and that was wonderful!  If you have marked skin such as stretch marks, make sure you try this. You will be glad you did. And the smell is great, not medicine like, just a great lotion smell. My husband also loved the lotion. He is a hand washer, he washes his hands a LOT during the day. So this leaves him with ultra-dry and cracked hands. He tried the lotion and it really helped give some moisture to his dry hands. 

Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Facial Lotion
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Daily Facial Lotion SPF 15, a lightweight moisturizer, provides the perfect balance of moisture and protection. SPF 15 blocks the sun’s damaging rays and is essential for daily use. Containing powerful antioxidants and wrinkle-fighters that work in conjunction with the natural Cocoa and Shea Butters, continued daily use leaves skin soft and radiant without irritation.

I used this lotion daily, this was an easy fit in my  morning beauty routine. This lotion absorbed quickly, and I loved the spf 15 that is always a plus.  I am not outside for a lot of time during the day at work but protecting my skin from the sun is still important to me. As I am getting older (ack! perish the thought!) I am glad that the lotion has antioxidants that are wrinkle fighters, because I have noticed more wrinkles popping up. Hopefully this will help stop more before they come!

Cocoa Butter Formula Line Smoothing Eye Cream 


Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Line Smoothing Eye Cream, a soothing blend of anti-aging and moisturizing ingredients specifically for the sensitive eye area.  This smooth formula glides on, diminishing the appearance of fine lines, and softens the eye area.

As I mentioned I am starting to see more wrinkles, not a lot mind you.. But some that I can notice. My most troublesome “wrinkles” are  my laugh lines, I just smile too much (that is not a bad thing right?) But I have noticed fine lines that were not there a few years ago. So I know I have to step up and take better care of my skin while I can. I used the Line Smooting Cream on my problem areas, and I am looking forward to less lines and a smoother look to my skin.

Cocoa Butter Formula Gentle Exfoliating Facial Scrub 


Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Gentle Exfoliating Facial Scrub is formulated specifically for use in conjunction with the other Cocoa Butter Formula Facial Products to enhance their effectiveness.  Micro-fine crushed Cocoa Beans polish skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing the new smoother skin beneath. This allows skin to easily absorb the other treatment products.  Gentle enough to be used 2-3 times a week.

I love the feel of new skin, to me it feels like a little baby’s skin. So soft and new.  The gentle exfoliating scrub helps my skin achieve that baby feel that I love. I have tried exfoliating scrubs before, and they are rough and a bit painful to use. I have very sensitive sin and other exfoliators’ have left my skin red and sore. But not Palmers, when they say gentle, they mean it. The scrub gently lifted the dead skin and left me with the soft skin I love.

Cocoa Butter Formula Gentle Daily Cleanser 


The first step in any skin care routine is the right cleanser.  Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Gentle Daily Cleanser has a soothing creamy consistency and foams to remove oil and impurities.  Milk proteins and antioxidants brighten and hydrate, leaving skin soft, fresh and glowing without over-drying.

I have to admit even in my early 30’s I am still prone to breakouts. The main reason I tend to get breakouts is dirty skin. I have very sensitive skin, and when it gets dirty it seems to rebel against me and I have patches of breakouts.  I have been using the daily cleanser for a while now, and I have had clean and clear skin. I am impressed, the cleanser really gets my skin clean. And my skin is no longer mad at me! I have not had a breakout in weeks.

Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter and Dark Cherry & Chocolate Lip Butter – 

 Soften and soothe your dry, chapped lips with Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate and Cherry Lip Butter.  Made with a special formulation of Palmer's pure Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E and Petrolatum, it provides your lips  ultra-moisturization and a hint of gloss with the delectable aroma of dark chocolate and cherry.  This one-of-a-kind lip butter works to combat even the driest of lips.

As you all know I am a lip balm lover! I just like them so much more than lipstick. They let your natural lip color shine though. The Palmers lip butter is like a lip gloss and they both have great scents. I love the glossy look my lips have after applying the butter. And my lips feel so very soft as well. I just put one in my purse and I am set for the day.

So overall I loved all of the skincare items I received. It is rare to have one brands line impress me so much. What can I say, when a product is a quality product, I appreciate that. And I am a Palmers fan for life!
