I have always loved cocoa butter for its subtle nutty, vanilla and chocolate like scent and it is very rich and moisturizing too. I especially liked Palmers Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick, but unfortunately I cannot find this product anywhere anymore. Luckily, I stumble upon The Body Shop’s Cocoa Butter Moisturizing Stick and it was on sale! I picked one up and really liked it so far.
From reading the forums and other reviews, a lot of ladies use this to try to avoid stretch marks and pregnant ladies use these to moisturized their stomachs. I mainly used the cocoa butter stick as a deep moisturizer for my hands, feet, knees and elbows. I have had an on going flare up of eczema on my elbows this year and my elbows are very dry from using hydrocortisone and I find that the cocoa butter helps soothes the chafing and peeling. It is also very moisturizing for my hands and feet too without being too greasy as it absorbs into my skin quickly. It is also less mess then lotions in jars, tubes and pump bottles, as I tend to get to much product out from these apparatus or I spill and drip product everywhere. When I carry a larger purse, I like to take this with me, as opposed to carrying a tube of lotion because it is neater and cleaner. Before and after every use, I clean the surface with a tissue to prevent bacteria from forming on the stick.
My favourite aspect of this stick is the scent! I love the nutty smell with the very subtle vanilla and chocolate scent. It is chocolately without it being too sugary and artificial.
