Review: Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E Body Scrub, May Smell Like Chocolate Milk Drink But Not Chocolicious Enough For Me

Are you a fan of chocolate milk drink? Yes? Then this review is for you 😀

I love chocolate. Not so much on chocolate milk because I can get quite jelak (satiated in English) if consumed too much. On one random sample redemption at Palmer’s roadshow back in May, I bought the Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E Body Scrub because the sales girl that attended my request were very nice and polite to me. It is very rarely nowadays to encounter such an excellent customer service eventhough I am just there to redeem sample. And of course coincidently I ran out of body scrub 😀

When I ask to try out Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E Body Scrub on the back of my hand, I wasn’t aware that this is made from cocoa. The strong cocoa scent immediately rushed into my nostril, as if slapping me back to my senses. There and then…I realized I may like chocolate as food but not for my body care.

The jar is a huge one but it’s a standard size, just like The Body Shop’s. It’s clear so the content is visible from the outside. Looks oh so tempting eh? 😀

Unscrew the cap and you will find another protective separator made from clear, thin plastic. I can only assume the scrub is too runny that a separator is needed to hold the content in place. Imagine what will it be if the separator is not there. Oh gosh. It would be so messy!

The scrub is just as how I expected it to be – runny. I’m not a fan of the texture. It is just too runny. I have to be careful so that I don’t spill it everywhere. Because I use this after my normal shower, when my body is still wet…once I slap on and start scrubbing this Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E Body Scrub, I find the walls and floor in my bathroom is all spattered with the scrub. It’s really one messy routine 🙁

However, the scrub comes with loads of generous cocoa beads. I’m also not a fan of the strong chocolate scent. It’s too overwhelming. Even for chocolate lover like myself.

I asked the sales girl on how long should I scrub my body. She told me to scrub and scrub until the cocoa beads broke into smaller pieces. I must warn you. The beads is quite harsh. You might not like it if you are into softer scrub. Me on the other hand like the scrub beadss. I have a philosophy on scrubs. A scrub is suppose to be like how scrub should be – feeling the beads. To me it’s like a spa massage.

Do I smell like chocolate milk shake? You bet I do. And I’m not liking it. It’s too overwhelming. Usually I’d just quickly get the routine done asap and rinse the scrub off asap. Even rinsing would take some time due to all the scrub beads that is all over my body.

Do I still smell like chocolate milk after rinsing? Hmmm just a bit thank God lol.

Eventhough I don’t quite fancy the scent nor the runny texture, I actually quite like the scrub because of the generous cocoa beads. It does exfoliating job pretty good and left me with a softer skin. However I don’t think so I’d repurchase it. I would prefer something else that smells better 😀

  • Oh, I think I am allergic to Palmer’s cocoa butter products. I bought their cream for stretch marks and overnight my skin became inflamed with a creeping rash on the areas I had applied it.
    The thing is love chocolate and eat heaps of it but this was the first time a single product caused me to flare up so quickly. I don’t think it has anything to do with Palmer’s. I just think I am allergic to one of the ingredients in the formula in the same way some people are allergic to nuts or cat hair. Such a shame because I have heard good reviews about Palmer’s Cocoa Butter products but it’s off limits to me, I’m afraid.
    My favorite scrub is the St Ives Apricot Kernel one with salicylic acid.

    • Oh! Yes Jude, judging from what you had mentioned…you are definitely allergic to one of the ingredient. Nah, not Palmer’s fault :). Just the culprit ingredient in it. I’m finishing this jar in another use. Going to try St Ives one 😀

  • Omg! It’s been such a long month I feel and I finally I have time to read you blog. Haha, time to stalk all your previous posts! 🙂

    I was so close to buying this the other day but thank god I didn’t. I can stand smells that are too overpowering. They give me a headache 🙁

    • No worries Neesha. A month passed by in a jiffy :D. Exam?

      This does a pretty good job but I don’t like to smell like a chocolate milk shake hahaha. It’s like I dropped my chocolate ice cream on me 😛

  • Sounds yummy! I love the beads too. Too bad, with the mess and smell, maybe I’ll pass on it.

    • It’s a chocolate mess in the bathroom lol.
