Palmer's Review

Today i woke up and decided to do a review on my Palmer's products.

I've got the Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter, the Moisturizing Lip Balm and the Cocoa Butter Formula 'Fragrance Free' Lotion.

Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter;

The scent of this product is amazing! It really does smell of dark chocolate and peppermint!

It doesn't taste as nice as it smells, but i like the taste of it. They use to do this Lip Butter in Dark Chocolate & Cherry but i can no longer find it in stores or online, i was so tempted to buy this flavour after such a good experience with the Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Flavour so i was quite disapointed when i went to buy it and couldn't find it!

This product is meant to moisturize your lips, and with most lip products you find that they don't really do that but with this one, OMG my lips feel so soft after using this!

It soaks into your lips in under an hour, and your lips feel like a baby's bum!

The simple ingredients is also a bonus, this product only contains Petrolatum (Vaseline), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil and Flavour.

You can buy this product in your local drugstore for under £3/$3.

Moisturizing Lip Balm;

This product is an amazing little lip balm! I've always seen it in stores but never sure whether to buy it or not, but when Asda had it down to £1 i couldn't not buy it.

This lip balm is formed in a semi-transparant, yellow block and stored in a cylindrical tube (a stick). I like how it's in a tube because i hate putting my fingers into a pot, i find it really unhygienic, so the product being in a stick is a bonus!

When you apply the lip balm it doesn't leave your lips sticky, it goes on really easy and instantly rehydrates your lips. There is a slight scent to the balm, but when applied you can't taste anything on your lips. On the tube it says ' Helps prevent & protect chapped, cracked or win burned lips' and i totally agree with it. A huge plus to this product is that it has a SPF 15 so you know your lips are protected at all times, and you don't have to buy a separate product to protect them!

This product is £1.69 to buy from most stores, but asda are doing it for £1 at the moment, so get down there for a good bargin!

Cocoa Butter Formula (Fragrance Free) Lotion;

I always like to moisturize my legs after i have shaved them and when imogen (http://www.imogenfoxylocks.blogspot.com/) said that this was a good moisturizer i thought i'd give it a go! And i don't regret buying this product one bit, i love how soft it makes my skin. It doesn't take that long to sink into your skin which i love, because i hate sitting around waiting for a moisurizer to dry.

I love the packaging of this product, the bottle is so unique and different from the rest. It's got a teardrop shape bottle which is white then the writting is purple. When you first use it the product takes quite a bit of sqeezing to get out of the bottle, i find it easier if i tip the bottle upside down and squeeze.

When i bought this they had one with blue writting and the other with purple and because i have never purchased this before i didn't know what the difference was because it did not say on the bottle. When i got home i searched on the internet and found that the blue one has a fragence while the purple is fragrance free. If i would of known this at the time i would have gone with the blue. Also they do this with an SPF 15 but they had ran out so i was left with just a moisturizer, althought it would have been nice to have the SPF 15 one i'm overly happy with what i bought!

You can get this at all drugstores for under £5/$5 but Asda have got it for £2 at the moment so hurry up and get yours before the offer is over.

I purchased all these products with my own money, and i am not affiliated with the company or products mentioned above. I was not paid to do this review and everything i write was my opinion.
