Palmers Cocoa Butter Skin Therapy Oil Review + Giveaway!

Uncategorized / Tuesday, August 14th, 2012


I don’t know about you, but I think I suffer even more with dry skin during the summer months than winter. I blame it on the A/C, fans, super dry Okanagan air and the sun! I’ve been flaking and itching all over my body and have been struggling to find something ultra hydrating yet light feeling on the skin. The last thing I want is to feel like I’m covered in plastic wrap and grease in this 36 degree (Celsius) heat, example, thick body butters that never seem to soak in. I really didn’t think an oil would soak in and feel light, but boy I was wrong!


This Palmers Cocoa Butter Skin Therapy Oil  is a dry, and lightweight oil. It absorbs almost instantly but leaves skin feeling and looking very hydrated and healthy! I’m a big fan of body oils in the winter but never thought to use them in the summer as the ones I typically use are heavy and sort of greasy feeling to lock in moisture.



This oil contains 6 key ingredients to target not only dryness but other skin problems as well! At the base is Cocoa Butter which helps with scars, stretch marks, dry skin, uneven tone and fine lines. Next is Vitamin E, also known to help all the same conditions. Sesame oil is added to provide extra, quick absorbing hydration and Cetesomate-E and Rosehip oil help all conditions as well. This oil absorbs so quickly I noticed I could snap my fingers immediately after application yet my skin still felt very hydrated and looked much more healthy.



This really is a huge amount of therapy in a generous sized bottle! And the price and availability make it an even more inciting option for dry skin! I love applying this right out of the shower to lock in the moisture. But want to know the best part of all of this? You can win it and more!

    Hi there! I’m so glad you reviewed this product. I have seen Palmers’ products but never tried them and have been curious.

    I am pretty good about moisturizing my skin, but in the summer when I spend more time outside I can often get a little too much sun. When that happens, in addition to the painful burn, my skin feels very uncomfortable and dried out. I need to replenish the lost oils. I think this product might help relieve the discomfort and replenish my skin.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    Sometimes, my skin acts up and becomes dry for seemingly no reason (like now). Pretty baffling, and quite frustrating!
