The interesting thing about this product is that it's not just marketed as a lip balm/chapstick. It's used as a spot treatment for dry skin and rough marks as well. Very smart advertising, Palmer's! Cocoa butter does help with all those issues. I'm glad to see that they haven't limited themselves by having this product labeled as a plain lip product. The half-oz size is great, too. This is a thick tube and with just two swipes your lips are covered. You get a lot of product for your money.

It smells heavenly. The cocoa scent isn't too strong; it's just right. I was expecting it to be a flesh tone/neutral brown color when I first popped open the lid. I appears as though Palmer's uses the deodorized/processed type of cocoa butter because this stick is white. Cocoa extract is the first ingredient, however, so it is something of a trade-off. Maybe in manufacturing cost?

On the lips it is divine. Not too shiny and not too matte. Would make a great primer and lip protector to wear under lipstick. For my own personal use I think I'm going to push the product out into a bowl, mix it with more pure cocoa butter(the raw kind), heat it up, mix it, then pour it back into the applicator when it is nearly cooled. The second ingredient in the product is mineral oil and the third is microcrystaline wax. I prefer a thicker lip balm than what these two ingredients can help create.

As much as I like the product I really think I have to give it an 8.5 on a 10 point scale. I would have liked to have seen this with a higher butter content than a synthetic ingredient such as mineral oil.

I do like this as a lip balm because of the light scent and the texture, but it has not healed my dry, chapped lips that I am experiencing as part of pregnancy. I was hoping this would be my miracle cure, but still no cigar, bummer.

    Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick, .5 oz:

    This stuff has been around for a long time. And let me tell you, I had very bad acne as a teen. I was on some kind of prescribed medication that dried my skin out and I had scabs all over. I was so scared that I would be scarred or have pock marks once this whole hormone deal was done. So I started a ritual. After I washed my face I would apply this to my dried out areas and scabs and let it sit for at least 10-15 minutes twice a day, sometimes 3x. Once my hormones took a chill pill and my major acne disappeared....no scars. My skin was beautiful. So now that I'm 43 years old, any time I get a cut or maybe a random zit, I'll pack this stuff on daily. Especially when it comes to my face. I had a friend that had surgery on her arm and I bought her some of this. Once it had healed over she started applying this multiple times a day and you can hardly see her scar at all. I only notice it because I know it's there. I've heard it works great while you are pregnant too to keep from getting stretch marks.

            Just received my cocoa butter swivel sticks in their new package. Checked the ingredients list and saw " Zea Mays (corn) oil". Why did Palmer's start adding this GMO dominated crop to the product?

              Great lip balm! I usually use lip balm with SPF in the daytime, but I love this for night! Hubby uses, too, since smells a little like chocolate, but not "foofy"! I LOVE that it is not tested on animals!

              I saw an online blogger say that she used this on her eyes for crows feet. It makes sense seeing as people have been using coco butter for stretch marks etc. Although I do like putting it around my eyes at night, it is entirely too greasy to put on in the morning....no makeup would stay with this under it. I also found that it works well on chapped lips.

                Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick, .5 oz:

                I've used and liked other Palmer's products, so I was pleased to find this portable lip/skin balm. It is easy to apply since the surface area is larger than other stick-type lip balms. It is also handy to use on other areas of dry, winter-damaged skin (like hands, elbows, etc.). It has a pleasant fragrance and lasts a long time, swivels up smoothly and caps closed securely.
