It’s no secret that I am a sucker for just about all things chocolate. From candy and desserts to a chocolate scented heat wrap and cocoa butter lotion, I’m always on the lookout for my next chocolate fix. When I heard about the new Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate & Cherry Lip Butter, I couldn’t be more excited to try it. In addition to being completely enamored with chocolate, I am a total lip balm fanatic. It came as absolutely no surprise to me upon trying it for the very first time, that this Dark Chocolate & Cherry Lip Butter by Palmer’s is an absolute must-have product for anyone who loves chocolate and lip balms. I’m truly smitten.
First, you remove the cap on the generous tube of lip butter to unleash a tantalizing aroma that reminds you of the most decadent chocolate desserts and sugary concoctions. (We also once tried a chocolate-cherry wine that also hit similar chords of pure bliss.) The scent alone makes this product one you won’t leave home without. As you smooth the creamy lip butter onto your lips, the texture is so soothing and delightful that you can’t imagine you’ve lived without this lip product until now. Chapped, dry, and even wind-burnt lips gain instant relief from this incredible product.
Of course, what you really want to know is all about the chocolate and cherry flavors. Paired together, this is an unbeatable combination that brings memories of holiday cherry cordials and Valentine’s heart boxes with only the best chocolates inside. I swear I could even taste a bit of the tantalizing chocolate and cherry flavor on the first application. The sweet scent lingers as long as you wear the lip butter, and I’m glad to say that reapplication is needed much less frequently than typical lip products. Oh, and the lip butter is a clear and creamy gel with a petrolatum base that adds a touch of glossy shine to your lips – you can wear it under or over your regular lip color products.
The scent and texture alone make this product a complete steal for the unbelievably low $2 or $3 that you’ll pay for a .35 oz tube, but you’re going to love all the other benefits that come along with it. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate & Cherry Lip Butter contains Vitamin E and real Cocoa Butter to soothe your lips while softening, adding moisture, and warding off dryness and that chapped appearance that is so common for so many of us this time of year. The cherry and Vitamin E ingredients bring the power of antioxidants while the Cocoa Butter adds protection and healing properties each time you apply. And in case you didn’t know, the addition of dark chocolate triggers the endorphins for a blissful state of mind.
In full disclosure, I received one tube of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate & Cherry Lip Butter for the purpose of this review. The fact that I got this lip goodie for free plays no part in my review – I would have gladly paid double the MSRP for this product based on how it’s performed and how much I like it so far. (But don’t tell Palmer’s that!) Even using this product just three times since receiving it, I can’t be happier with the results. The emollient lip butter keeps my lips soft, smooth, and hydrated, which is so important to me, especially in the wintertime.
Lastly, whether you are attached or single, Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Dark Chocolate & Cherry Lip Butter is truly a feel-good product that you should pick up for yourself in time for Valentine’s Day. Even if you are planning to celebrate Anti-Valentine’s Day, you really can’t blame the chocolate. The flavor and fragrance make this one of my honest-to-goodness, must-have products – seriously, if you love chocolate and lip gloss products, trust me on this one. For a meager $2.25 retail price per tube, you will not be disappointed. In fact, you might just retire some of your other go-to lip products.
