This lotion works like a charm for me. Winter is very harsh on my hands and the lotion I've been using for the last couple of years just couldn't hold up any longer. My hands get ashy and dry, and then I ran across this and gave it a try. The lotion is light, absorbs quickly and is not greasy. Even only after a few days, my skin has been day and night. I'm very pleased by the results. My wedding is coming up in a month and a half and I believe this lotion will get my hands in top shape.

As with a lot of reviews. The scent is strong. Granted it does read cocoa butter and it was expected. I did not think it would be this strong. Now it's a sweet chocolate smell and is tolerable since I only use it on my hands however they could have toned it down.

With how effective this lotion is, I can't complain much and am glad I decided to give it a try.

I was so ready to love this lotion. With Cocoa butter, AHAs, shea butter, Vit. E--it seemed to be the Holy Grail of moiturizers. Until I smelled it. Ugh. I always thought people complaining about fragrance were making mountains out of molehills, etc. This stuff smells overwhelmingly like frosting. Like you just bathed in it. Even my 12 yr. old daughter who loves all those dessert-scented products thought it was disgusting. My dog followed me all over the house trying to lick my legs. If Palmers could come up with an unscented or even just lightly scented version of this, I'd buy it, but this, no way.

    Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula, For Dry, Ashy Skin, 13.5 fl oz:

    I don't agree with the reviews about scent. It has cocoa butter so it smells like cocoa, or more familiarly, chocolate. It is quite yummy actually. Ever since Jergens changed their smoothing formula lotion I've been searching for a placement with alpha hydroxy power and I finally stumbled onto this lotion that's been in front of my face the whole time. Resolves dry skin, esp on the legs. No more bumps on back of lower arms. Even the delicate skin on my chest is smooth after the summer sun exposure. With so many women buying scented lotions such as those a BBW, this is a real treat and for more than half the cost.

      I am a budget buyer, but this is the best lotion for the price that I have found, and it just happens to be my favorite too. It is wonderful!

        I really wanted to like this product, but it just didn't meet my expectations. Hours after I applied it, my elbows would still be dry. And I agree with the others who commented on the smell--its too overpowering. It almost makes me sick to my stomach. Would not purchase again.

        Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula, For Dry, Ashy Skin, 13.5 fl oz:

        I really want to love this lotion; in fact the three stars is because it is fantastic--my skin feels amazingly smooth after using it, and I have had rough, bumpy skin for years. But the smell is just horrible. It's strong, and it's awful--it just plain smells bad. If the scent was changed, I think this would be the best lotion ever made.

        I have used everything under the sun. This is hands down the best. However .... the scent (!!-uugh!) Why, oh why do they perfume it?? Other than that, I have used everything from La Mer to Vaseline (all 'flavors') and this is the only lotion that feels good, smoothed out my texture/tone, (even minimized stretch marks), and overall improved my dry, blotchy, rough/bumpy skin. Perfect all-around body lotion - would have gladly given it 5 Stars were not for overpowering scent.....

        Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula, For Dry, Ashy Skin, 13.5 fl oz:

        This lotion is awesome. I've gotten only compliments on the fragrance. It's a very yummy cocoa butter/shea butter scent. I definitely wouldn't wear perfume and this fragrance - that would be too strong. I have very dry/ashy skin, so when I saw the label, I jumped and bought it. Usually I have to apply lotion to my legs at least 2x a day. Not so with this product! I also strongly recommend Neutrogena Emulsion, this is a fail proof product available without any fragrance.

        Not bad, but I like Godiva and Women of color better. But, my favorite Palmer's product is there Stretch mark cream and not lotion, because it has collagen and elastin, which makes my skin look healthier and more youthful. I have less blemishes.
