Palmer's Cocoa Butter
Thank Zeus I bought this product. Not only does it go on very nicely, and smell amazing, but it literally feels like you've just applied it... even two days later. Who can say that about their skin cream? After one use the cracks on my legs are gone, and my knees, elbows and feet are nice and moisturized. I'm also quite happy that I will be able to use this as a soothing solution for when I get a little too much sun this summer (hey, it happens.) Palmer's is supposed to smooth out stretch marks and scars as well, which is why this product is definitely known as the go-to item for all those knocked up gals out there.
You used to only be able to find this stuff in holistic or African stores, but now I'm seeing this brand a lot at the regular drug store. If you're worried about the chemicals in this product (there actually aren't THAT many) then you can just get yourself 200 grams of cocoa butter (which is not that easy to spread on the skin by itself) or you can try your luck at an organic or natural health food store which usually carries natural alternatives.
If you want to use this on your face, I recommend trying it as a night treatment so it has time to absorb in your skin before you put makeup on the next day.
