Treating Dry Winter Skin with Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula

Man oh man has this winter been rough here in Canada! While I normally suffer from dry skin during the cold season, it seems like this clingy polar vortex we've been dealing with has made my skin 10 times worse! You know when your skin is so dry that it starts itching out of nowhere and the only way to relieve it is to scratch the **** out of it until your skin turns horribly red? Well, that was me just a few weeks ago, but thankfully Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula has come to the rescue and my skin is forever thankful!

First off, I must address the scent of the Cocoa Butter Formula range - it is pure sweetness heaven! It seriously smells like freshly baked chocolate chip cookies, and the scent actually lasts throughout the day. Another key ingredient of the line is Vitamin E, one of the best ingredients to combat dry skin. I am so excited to share these three wonderful products with you - they have made my skin oh-so-happy and I think they are the best you can get at the drugstore!

The Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Lotion* is a wonderful everyday skin care product. This non-greasy yellow cream is quick to act as it gets absorbed within seconds. I also really like that it comes with a pump dispenser with a lock, as I know I will be taking it with me when I travel as it is so conveniently packaged!

The Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Concentrated Cream* is an intensive treatment for the most stubborn dry patches and is also an effective stretch mark and scarring smoother. This thick cream is thus especially beneficial used on the knees, elbows, hands and feet. Despite its rich consistency, it still absorbs very quickly and keeps my skin moisturized all day long.

The Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Body Oil* I was a little intimidated to try. While I am no stranger to body oils as I like to use coconut oil as an all-over moisturizer, I didn't think I could find anything that would compare. Well, my beloved coconut oil has finally met its match! This body oil delivers silky goodness without that leftover greasy feel. I like using this right after I shower to lock in all that moisture, but it can also be poured directly into your bath for some spa-like intensive hydration.

I am super impressed by all of these products, and think you definitely cannot go wrong with trying any one of these! If you are looking for that dry skin savior, I say look no further and give Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula a go, it certainly won't disappoint! :)

I guess I will check out the online shops if they have something for my combination skin and perfect for summer months. I wonder if the brand has shea butter item too.
