Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Lip Balm Review

Before going into the review and all i have to say today is a lovely day in the French Riviera ! Blue skies , our view on Saint Paul de Vence is soooo clear as well . It's just one of those days where all you want to do is hang by the pool and listen to More To Luv by Minnutes. If you have not listened to this song you SHOULD . I'm addicted to it right now ! Anyway , let's get to the serious stuff .




I bought this at the end of this winter thinking it would be a great lip balm for the sunnier days because it has SPF15 , Vitamin E and it helps prevent & protect chapped , cracked or wind-burned lips . I guess it's also great for people who ski a lot ! 


Excuse all the dirt and the pink stuff on it ! It's just lip gloss and lipstick ... 


Now , let's talk about the results of this product. First of all ,  I have to say i had high expectations from this product as i am quite familiar with their body moisturizers ( which i adore ). The first time i actually applied this  on my lips it kind of stung which is kind of weird coming from a lip balm ! I didn't give up on it straight away though . I went on to use it a few times always hoping that i would be pleased with it but sadly that time never came... I mean don't you think it's weird that each time i apply this balm on my lips it burns my lips !? Shouldn't it be doing anything but that !? It does smell amazing though especially if you love cocoa butter ! All in all , as i said i'm really disappointment in this product ! :/ 

Vaseline is still ( i find ) the best lip balm / moisturiser if you have dry / chapped lips ! It works marvelously and i may just do a review soon ... 

There you have it guys !

  1. I have this and i don't like it either. I find that it just sits on top of my lips and doesn't do anything, tastes horrible too! x

  5. There is not much that beats Vaseline - it is the best multipurpose product generally but petroleum is not ideal when you consider the environment! :( I will write a blog about some vaseline alternatives I have tried and am developing some blends too!
    Have you tried Lanolips also thats prety good?

  8. I purchased some Plamer's "Coco Butter Formula" lip balm a couple of days ago and it gives a real burning/stinging sensation (ouch!) I'm concerned that this product is doing more damage than good and I won't be continuing to use it.

    I've used Carmex, Blistex and Vaseline in the past and all have worked perfectly. I enjoy using the other Palmer's cocoa Butter Formula products so thought I'd try the lip balm too but I don't recommend it!

  9. OMG, I just bought this and was SOOO excited to try it but just like you BURNS!!! I googled "Palmer's lip balm burns" and you wouldn't believe how many people said the exact same thing. What is in this stuff? As we speak, it feels like someone took a million little needles dipped in hot sauce and poked them into my lips simultaneously. Going straight in the trash.
