I am a big fan of cooking with olive oil, as I’ve learned its delicious seasoning ability from my late grandfather. Pair olive oil with some salt and pepper, rosemary, and garlic, marinate your chicken for a few hours and voila… the perfect entrée for a family meal. So we know olive oil has many excellent qualities in cooking… but is it also as phenomenal in beauty and skincare uses too?
I set out to determine the answer to this question by trying out Palmer’s Olive Butter Formula with Vitamin E. My particular bottle of lotion came in a pink container, as it is part of Palmer’s campaign to fight for a cure to breast cancer. The company donates 10 percent of the sale price of their pink-bottled products to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. Already, Palmer’s has found favor in my book.
The product’s packaging is sleek, sturdy, and attractive, boasting a baby-pink plastic bottle, a predominantly green label, and boasts all the juicy tidbits you might like to know about Palmer’s Olive Butter Formula with Vitamin E. For starters, the front label confirms that this product is made with certified organic olive oil. Furthermore, the lotion is rich enough in antioxidants to also mention that on the front label.
In addition to certified organic extra virgin olive oil, Palmer’s Olive Butter Formula with Vitamin E contains coconut oil and lots of antioxidants to keep skin looking young and healthy. The lotion features a unique lipid structure to moisturize skin instantly, according to the package, and I would have to agree. This time of year, the skin on my hands, legs, knees, feet, and elbows become especially dry and dull.
I am happy to report that immediately after using Palmer’s Olive Butter Formula with Vitamin E, my skin stays feeling softer, smoother, and moisturized much longer than the average lotion application. The tone of my skin becomes brighter and even radiant compared to the dull and dry appearance it had only seconds ago.
The lotion is a pretty pastel green color that feels soft on the skin. Palmer’s Olive Butter Formula with Vitamin E is lightly fragrant with a pleasant, organic aroma that lessens over time. This is an especially great quality for anyone who does not want an overpowering lotion fragrance.
All in all, I really enjoy Palmer’s Olive Butter Formula with Vitamin E. I especially love that it contains certified organic extra virgin olive oil. I feel good about using this lotion because I feel like I am making a healthy choice for my body.
An 8.5 fl oz. bottle of Palmer’s Olive Butter Formula with Vitamin E retails for roughly $5 – $8. You can buy your own bottle of Palmer’s Olive Butter at Amazon.com.
