I was a big fan of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Lotion back in the day, until the strong chocolate fragrance gradually became too much for me. But when I came across a free sample of the Olive Butter Formula Lotion in a magazine recently, I decided it was worth a try and ended up being rather impressed by it.
Formulated with organic extra virgin olive oil (and quite a high percentage of it too, as it’s the second ingredient listed after water), this lotion spreads really easily on my skin and sinks in well. If you found the Cocoa Butter Formula too heavy and rich, this lotion might be more to your liking. The fragrance is much lighter than the Cocoa Butter too – it’s fresh and pleasant, with a touch of olive, but isn’t strong or overpowering. Packed with anti-oxidants from the olive oil and the addition of vitamin E, this lotion will keep your skin soft and supple and the light texture is perfect for summer.
Buy the lotion now in Boots for the bargain price of €5.19 and you’ll also get a bonus free tube of the Olive Butter Concentrated Cream – perfect for smoothing and softening dry heels, elbows and knees.
