Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Lip Balm review


As you can see from the photo, this tube of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Lip Balm has been well used. I first mentioned it back in March when I put together a Spring Rejuvenation Kit. It’s been knocking about in various coats and bags ever since and has sadly come to the end of its life. Although I like to try out new lip balms, I think I’ll be stocking up on a few of these as I now know it does a good job, didn’t give me any skin reactions and only costs £1.89.

The sudden cold and damp weather we’ve been having in the UK has meant that my skin has become quite dry and sore. This Palmers lip balm has done a very good job at keeping moisture locked in and also lasts for a good few hours before needing to reapply -though I’m sure a lot of you are like me and find yourself reapplying liberally throughout the day. I should probably point out that the product has a light scent of chocolate but is in no way sickly or overwhelming – so don’t worry if you do have a habit of using too much lip balm. The best thing about the product is that, although it gives your skin a lot of moisture, it doesn’t leave you with that shiny greasy feeling that some lip balms do.

There are a few added bonuses with this lip balm. Firstly, the shape and size of  the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter lip balm is handy; you can easily pop it into the pocket of your jeans or jacket if you aren’t taking a bag out. Secondly it has SPF 15, which will help to protect this delicate and thin area of skin from the sunshine. Finally, the application is very smooth and also pretty hygienic as you don’t have yo apply it with your finger.

Which lip balms are you using at the moment? I’ve been a fan of Palmer’s other products for quite sometime, their body butter is fantastic. I’m keen to try out some of their dark chocolate lip balms when I next see them.
