Hello gorgeous ladies,
Happy winters finally!! I went out yesterday night and I could actually feel that chilly breeze. And the time has come for us to enter into the hoarding phase of lip balms and lip butters. I have so many lip balms that it will take almost 6 months to finish them up but some of them are in tubs so whenever I see any stick lip balm then I am attracted to pick it up. The online store was offering a good discount so I picked this up. This range from Palmer’s and the olive oil range are quite famous and the stuff is trustworthy too. So let’s go in a detail about this stick.
Rs. 240 for 14 g (I got it for Rs. 168)
What Palmer’s says:
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.
My experience with Palmer’s cocoa butter formula with vitamin E swivel stick
I got this for my night time use as the best treatment of the lips could be done overnight when you are fast asleep. I was already using the biotique’s aloe vera lip balm and that was in a pot form and this came out with a stick so I am currently using it for night time. It pretty much looks like the blue and yellow coloured fevi-stick; the looks are the same and the size as well. It has a blue, orange and a brown packaging with all the details written over it and the stick is white in colour. Now the double benefit that I get from this one is that it treats my marks or blemishes I would say as well as will heel my chapped lips during winter. This can also be used on the entire face and I think it will be great for dry skin but not for oily skin as it is a bit greasy and heavy. It is easy to carry and use as well but is huge in size as compared to other lip balms. The quantity is also quite more for the price that they take. The packaging is a twisty one, as you twist the lower portion the lip balm comes out. The colour of the stick is off white and the texture being very soft, a lot of product may get used in one swipe and now I come to the best part of it that is the fragrance. It smells like the yummiest cocoa butter in the entire world.
It smells exactly like milkybar chocolate and I think even better than that. I was constantly preventing myself from taking a big bite lol. It smells heavenly and delicious. This has convinced me to buy more of the cocoa butter range products as well. Any-time I am getting bored I just go and smell this lip balm and it gives me such a good feeling. It does not have any SPF content and I think if they improve upon this then it would become a perfect lip balm. It keeps my lips hydrated for a long time but it lasts completely for about 2 hours but I only use it when I am home and at night as well because it feels a little heavy on the lips and it does not give any colour and I like tinted lip balms better when I am out. But it is a very good night treatment for chapped and dry lips. It can also be used on scars but the thing it direct application from the stick can be done either on lips or scars because applying it on scars and then lips is totally yuck! I apply it on scars by taking a little on my fingers. My scars are bad so I dint attach a picture but in 6 days my scars have totally reduced after using it twice a day. Reduction can be noticed every day. I clicked a picture and kept and I could see it but not all kinds of stubborn scars can be treated by this so do not expect very fast results. Overall it is a nice one for a night treatment.
Pros of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E Swivel Stick
-Available everywhere so easy to obtain
-Affordable and the quantity is quite more than the normal lip balms and the size is big as well
-Has a twisty thing at the bottom so you twist it up and the lip balm comes up
-Handy and convenient to use as compared to lip balms that come in a tub or a pot
-The fragrance is the best cocoa butter fragrance ever that I have sniffed and smells like milk chocolate somewhat like lindt milk chocolate or milky bar
-Will treat dry and chapped lips and can also be used to treat the dryness on face
-It can also be used on blemishes or scars and I could see a difference in the size of the scars and redness in 6 days
Cons of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E Swivel Stick
-Does not contain SPF
-I don’t apply it in the morning as it feels very heavy on the lips and you get a waxy feeling
-It does not give out any colour, I like tinted lip balms more for outings
-Can be used as a moisturiser for dry skin but not for oily skin because it will feel heavy and will make the face more greasy and may cause break outs
Will I repurchase/ recommend Palmer’s cocoa butter formula with vitamin E swivel stick?
Yes I will for winters as it is heavy so will treat the dry and chapped lips completely and it does have a heavenly fragrance which I am sure everyone will love. I have loads of lip balms to try currently so haven’t decided whether I will get one more of this or not.
