Scrubbing with Chocolate // Palmer's Cocoa Body Scrub


Being a total body scrub snob, I initially dismissed the Palmer’s Cocoa body scrub when I bought a cheap pack which contained it alongside a body butter. The idea of a lotion-like scrub filled with sparse particles put me off, but being a fan of the brand I threw it into the shower anyway. I should know by now not to judge a book by its cover (or a product but the formula!) as this silky scrub has changed my opinion of what a body scrub can be. The chocolately scent is pure heaven (and has been helping me steer clear of Smarties…) while the texture of the scrub is really working for me. It is moisturising without leaving a noticeable film behind (pet hate right there!) because of the shea butter, cocoa butter and Palmer’s staple vitamin E, so it is almost like applying a body butter, in the shower! The scrublets in this are actually crushed up cocoa beans, which I think is pretty rad, and they do a top job of smoothing out my skin. All in all, this impressed me greatly considering I didn’t have high hopes for it at all. In fact, since it is only $10.99, I am going to repurchase when the chocolately goodness runs out, lest my skin get mad at me.
 

Are you a fan of foodie scents in the shower? Does the thought of scrubbing yourself with chocolate turn you on, or off?
 
 
*Bought this all by myself. Honesty, always.

  2. I love foodie scents in the shower. I am totally obsessed with my soap and glory breakfast scrub, which smells exactly like pancakes with maple syrup!

    Will have to try this one too :)

  9. Sounds VERY tempting! I've actually been using The Body Shop's Chocomania scrub in the shower lately and I love its rich chocolate scent too!

    1. @Vita I have had my eye on that scrub, I wanted to get the butter too but it doesn't smell as good as the shower gel does-in fact, it doesn't smell nice at all. I am getting into chocolately scents, just delicious!

  10. Mmmm you have convinced me to try with your lovely explanation of this scrub. When you showed me the scent it didn't win me over, but the scrub and body butter combo is tipping me towards it. In need of a new scrub :)

    1. @Candi aw thanks, it smells amazing when you use it, not sure why it wasn't an awesome scent in store. I guess that just happens sometimes ;P It is really moisturising too!
