I started using this after I discovered that some marks from acne weren't disappearing as quickly as I had hoped. I switched from aloe vera to this - and I absolutely SWEAR by this. It's only been a few months, but I see AMAZING results.

There are hardly any more marks, and the oiliness of my skin has disappeared (because of proper moisturization from two products). After I get out of the shower, I will moisturize with Clean&Clear Dual Action Moisturizer on my back, let it sit and soak up - and then take a few dollops and spread it across my back, but ONLY a thin layer. I don't want to have that heavy greasy feeling that comes with too many layers, and a sweaty day at school. I USED to have a lot bacne and lots of oil on my back, but this regiment definitely cleared it up. It hydrates the skin and clears up past scars like nothing else can. I wouldn't recommend putting on a huge layer, unless you're planning to go to sleep and shower in the morning (which I sometimes do for better results), but otherwise, it's got a little heavy/greasy feel if you put too much on. It's got a yummy smell and definitely helps my skin.

I absolutely loved this formula in the short, cylindrical jar - the original formula which this company has built an empire upon. But sadly, it could not resist the temptation to cheapen it to death with the addition of even more mineral oil. Had they opted for flax based 3-6-9 omega oil, they could have had a true improvement on their hands. Sadly, they went the cheap route. Look for © 1999 on the back of the last remaining jars of the old formula and © 2011 on the back of the new formula.

    Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula With Vitamin E, 3.5 oz:

    I've been diabetic since childhood, so I am VERY particular about taking care of my feet. I use this cream after every shower/bath, and to keep the skin soft, moisturized and free of cracks.I put on a pair of quarter socks (yes, I wear these socks to bed)to aid absorption and to prevent rubbing off on the sheets. My hands and face love it, too, and I even use this Palmer's around my eyes. The only fault is there isn't a travel size available that can go through the TSA checkpoints.

    Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula With Vitamin E, 3.5 oz:

    Okay I love the smell, but it is kind of greasy. So I mix it with other lotions that I find to be either too watery or that don't have a smell or that I just want to get rid of but don't like all that much and would not want to be wasteful. Anyway, really moisturizing and easy on sensitive skin (which I have...like REALLY REALLY sensitive, can get a rash from just about anything).

      Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula With Vitamin E, 3.5 oz:

      I swear by this stuff. I've used this religiously with my two other pregnacies & I am using it again for the third. I use it twice a day, everyday. I do not have any stretch marks and don't plan to get any! Plus, I love the scent.
      I also highly recommend Bio-Oil or Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil in addition to the cocoa butter.

            Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula With Vitamin E, 3.5 oz:

            For this product -- Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula -- I am definitely a "brand buyer." I have tried many other cocoa butter products, but none perform as well. I use it winter and summer -- year 'round -- and I'm never without an extra container on the shelf. A great product for those prone to "heat rash." Nice, subtle scent. It's the best product for skin care I can name.

                My husband gets very dry, chapped hands and feet particulary in winter. We have tried many other products but this one is the best for lubricating without feeling greasy. We both use it and like the smell.

                  Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula With Vitamin E, 3.5 oz:

                  I don't know what I'll do if they ever discontinue this product. This is my night cream. I sort of figured out that what really helps prevent wrinkles and keeps skin looking nice is moisturization. This stuff is ridiculous...much of it is still on my face in the morning and, even after washing with Clean and Clear face wash, my skin is still dewy. I hate to sound arrogant but I get a lot of compliments on my skin, finally, after being made fun of for being pale my whole life. Stay out of the sun has helped, but so has Palmers. I can't imagine using this on my body, post-shower, it's like body grease, you can swim the English Channel in this stuff, but it is perfect as a night cream...I slather it on.

                    Comments about Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula With Vitamin E, 3.5 oz:

                    I ordered two jars because this product is getting hard to find in my area. One of the jars had a loose lid when it arrived. In that jar the cocoa butter inside showed a large crack in the middle indicating that it had been drying out somewhat for a while. It probably hasn't hurt the product any. But you should check your jars and make sure that the lids are on tight enough.
