How are you all doing? I am waiting for the rains to come and make the weather pleasant. Although I like rains only when I am home ; ) As you all know about this much raved range from Palmer’s “ Cocoa Butter”. I got these lip butters from the same range. The reason why I got this was it claimed being up up of dark chocolate and fruits. Who wouldn’t like chocolate products? So here we are to test this one, let’s see how it went using this one.
Price: Rs. 220 for 10 g
Product description by Palmer’s:
A richly moisturizing lip butter, with the delectable aroma of dark chocolate and peppermint, which leaves lips soft and glossy. This one of a kind lip butter works to combat even the driest lips. Softens and soothes chapped lips. A special formulation of Palmer’s 100% pure Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E provides ultra-moisturisation and a hint of gloss.
My take on Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate and Peppermint Lip Butter
I have a lot of stuff from this particular range and have till date loved every bit of the product. I seriously cannot resist this range, so I keep on buying something or the other. This lip butter has a white and brown packaging. It comes in an inverted tube similar to Vaseline tubes. It is tiny so pretty handy as well and comes at a good affordable price. It claims to contain cocoa butter, vitamin E and petroleum jelly which are all good for the maintenance of our lips. It does not contain SPF which is a minor con for me. The gloss or lip butter rather has a consistency similar to a clear gloss. It is not that thick so calling it a lip butter would be pretty inappropriate. It glides smoothly on the lips without bleeding. I expected it to be a tinted one. But to my disappointment it has no tint. It was a normal clear gloss. Certainly I did not need this because I recently got a lot of lip balms and glosses without a tint. The lip butter adds an amazing glossy effect to the lips and makes it look very healthy. Sometimes when you want your eye make-up to stand out this would be perfect to go with. It has a shine which can be noticed from afar. It has a lovely fragrance of a blend of dark chocolate and peppermint as they claim. It smells like the famous chocolate “Lindt” in mint and chocolate flavour which I am sure all of you must have enjoyed once in a while. It feels like I have applied that chocolate on my lip. The peppermint gives a super cooling and tingling sensation for a while.The fragrance stays on the lips for an hour and then fades. It does soften up the lips after using it for a week or so. It is excellent for treating chapped lips. You apply it for a night and the chapped lips vanish away the next morning. I think it is a good product for winters for daily application. Overall I would say it would have been a better product if it had a tint to it.

Cons Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate and Peppermint Lip Butter
Will I recommend/repurchase Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate and Peppermint Lip Butter?
Yes, it is a great one for winters. It is one of the best for treating chapped lips. But do not fall for the claims, lip butter and the flavor because they are pretty okay and nothing extra-ordinary.
IMBB Rating: 3/5
Do give it a try in winters as it is cost-friendly! But if you remove the glossy effect and the fragrance of dark chocolate and peppermint, it is a mere tube of Vaseline; and you obviously know how much a tube of Vaseline would cost? So this may be not really worth it.
