I was sent two different lotions to try: Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula body lotion and Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Concentrated Cream. I first tried the body lotion and applied it just after I showered. The first thing that struck me about it was the amazing scent. It smelled like actual cocoa butter without it being too overbearing. The lotion went on easily and absorbed pretty quickly. And a small dab goes a long way. Although the lotion did make my skin feel soft and moisturized, the feeling did not last by the end of the day. This would be an excellent moisturizer for the summer or after tanning, or for people who do not suffer extremely dry skin during the winter.
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Concentrated Cream is much better suited for extremely dry skin. This cream is much thicker and absorbs a little more slowly than the body lotion. The Concentrated Cream has the amazing cocoa butter scent and kept my skin smooth and soft including my elbows and knees.
Both Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion and Concentrated Cream are enriched with Vitamin E, paraben free and not tested on animals. Palmer's also claims that both "helps smooth and blend unattractive scars" and "is widely recommended for stretch marks, during and after pregnancy". Although I haven't noticed any smooth or blending of scars, I have only been using Palmer's for couple of weeks. I will update you know if I notice any change in any of the scars on my legs in the future. Also, I am not pregnant (whew!) so I can't comment on the pregnancy stretch mark claim.
Have you tried Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion or Concentrated Cream? Do you like it? Did it help with your stretchmarks or dry skin? I would love to know!

Disclosure!: Even though I was sent these products to sample and review, all my statements and opinions are true and reflect my actual viewpoint.
And P.s!: Since a little goes a long way with both Palmer's products, they will last for several months! Also the scent of my cocoa butter body wash mixed with the cocoa butter smell of Palmer's is almost intoxicating!
