Hello lovely ladies! It’s that time of the year when we all have to deal with chapped lips and dry skin. Don’t forget to drink lots of water besides using hydrating products for your skin. A must-have product for Fall/Winters in every lady’s purse is a lip balm and the product under the spotlight today is “Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter”!
Palmer’s have an extensive skin care, hair care and lip care range. Their lip butters are available in three options: Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Butter with SPF 15 Cocoa, Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate & Cherry Lip Butter and Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate & Peppermint Lip Butter.
Softens and soothes your dry, chapped lips. Made with a special formulation of Palmer's pure Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E and Petrolatum, it provides your lips ultra-moisturization.
DirectionsMay be used under or over lipstick or alone for a natural, glossy look.
IngredientsPetrolatum, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate, Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) Oil, Saccharin, Flavor.
What Do I Think?
Where should I begin with? Packaging or the scent? Ok let’s leave the more exciting part for later :D The product comes in a squeezable palm sized soft tube which has a flat mouth with a little hole to dispense the product, the opening is very appropriately sized considering the product’s consistency. The tube has a secure screw cap so you can easily throw it inside your purse. The flat smooth mouth of the tube allows the product to spread evenly and easily on the lips. The product itself is a clear one with thick gel-like consistency which, let me tell you, is not at all sticky. You get 10g of product which might sound not much but a little goes a long way; you only need a little bead-sized product to cover your whole lips. Now the exciting part! It has an ah-mazingly delicious chocolate peppermint smell! (and it tastes sweet too) I love it! I can smell it all day to be honest :D. That was too much, wasn’t it? But this is the most deliciously-scented product I have in my stash right now. The strong scent might be a downside for some people but hey! It’s chocolate after all and who does not like chocolate? The peppermint in this product gives a slight tingling feeling which I felt to be refreshing. The strong scent fades away though after some time of application. It stays on the lips for 1 to 2 hours with eating and drinking and you might need reapplication depending upon the severity of your chapped lips.
Another great thing in my opinion is that this lip butter is available in two flavours and one without any flavour for people who detest strong scents.
The Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate & Cherry Lip Butter smells and tastes of Chocolate and Cherries. Sounds delicious, right? :)

I found this lip butter to give my lips a smooth surface to apply lipsticks especially the matte ones. I have used it underneath the most matte lipstick I have in my stash right now that is Colour Studio Pure Matte (Lust) and it made the lipstick easy to apply and also gave it a slight sheen (not glossy), and yes it did work on keeping my dry lips hydrated when wore alone. This product can be a great help for those people who want to wear matte lipsticks in Fall/Winters but cannot do so due to dry lips.

Oh yes I have also tried it over the lipsticks and it gives them a glossy look when worn that way.
All in all I really like it and would definitely recommend it to those who are looking for a pocket-friendly lip butter for this season.
