Review - Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Gentle Exfoliating Facial Scrub

I have using this scrub for a few weeks now and absolutely love it. I've always been a big fan of the Palmer's range and this scrub is no exception.

This is quite a grainy scrub which I like. I try to be open minded with exfoliators but I must say that deep down I don't really believe an exfoliator can truly work without scrubby bits!

One thing that can be a bit of a problem is that because this scrub is so thick it is quite hard to squeeze out of the tube. You really have to put some effort into getting this product out which can be a good thing I guess because you will never squeeze out more than you need.

After using this in the shower my skin feels so super soft and my moisturiser just sinks straight in. This is a very heavy scrub so due to my sensitive skin I have found that using it every 3rd or 4th day is ideal for me. Any more than that and my skin can feel a little dry. I haven't noticed any irritation at all from using it and the smell is just divine! It's not the usual cocoa butter smell but a little bit more floral. The pack calls it a White Lily fragrance.

I've even been using this as a lip scrub occasionally and love how soft and supple it makes my lips feel after use.

Overall, if you're a fan of grainy scrubs then you should definitely try this one. As with all Palmer's products it's reasonably priced and I'm expecting my tube to last for at least another couple of months at the rate I've been using it.

Are you a Palmer's fan like me?

  1. I tried this last year and it really irritated me! Think red dry patches with little pimples! Total disaster.

    1. Wow, your skin and mine must be like polar opposites! I expected irritation due to how rough it is but haven't had any. Maybe my skin is finally snapping out of it's stupid phase?

  2. i really like your blog..have fun reading it
