What if I told you there’s one beauty product that has 101 uses? This is not a drill, gals! I’ve used cocoa butter for years on stretch marks and scars, but I recently learned how incredible resourceful I could be by using this product. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula has been around since 1840 and is a jar brimming with opportunities. I put the substance to the test, and I’m so excited to report that I have five special beauty hacks with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter to share with you!
The Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Original Solid Jar provides 24-hour hydration and absorbs quickly into your skin, helping achieve instant soothing and comfort. It also creates a protective barrier that locks in moisture. Made with natural Cocoa Butter and Vitamin E, the Jar heals & softens all skin types. I have had eczema since I was in middle school, so having a substance like Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Solid Formula has been helpful at treating my condition. As someone who has hypothyroidism, my skin is also naturally dry and I’m constantly looking for relief.
Outside of its moisturizing capabilities and anti-aging benefits, the solution can even be used for things like shoe polish! I love finding products that are natural and multi-use. I’m all about sustainability, so having a catch-all product like Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Solid Formula helps me feel like I’m cutting down waste and investing in quality brands.
While treating my own skin conditions is enough of a reason for me to fall in love with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Solid Formula, I found that there are so many other unique ways to use this product. For this special blog, I wanted to showcase the versatility of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Solid Formula and show you “how I jar.”
Eye Shadow and Lipstick Primer
Believe it or not, cocoa butter makes a fantastic primer for your eye shadow and lipstick. Using cocoa butter as a base is a great way to keep your shadow intact without making your skin feel and look greasy. When I tried this method, my eye shadow stayed stationary for hours throughout the day. When it came to priming my lips, I felt that cocoa butter added a nourishing component to my routine and made my lips feel smooth before putting on my lipstick.
Miracle Makeup Remover
Before working on this project, I had no idea what a potent makeup remover cocoa butter could be! When I opened my jar to take off my nightly makeup, I was surprised to see that my face was clean in a few quick wipes. Cocoa butter is also great for softening skin and fighting fine lines, so using it as a makeup remover has multiple benefits.
Shaving Cream Substitute
No shaving cream? No problem. Save money on shaving cream by lathering your legs with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Solid Formula. The solution works like a charm and will soothe your legs in the process. You can even mix your cocoa butter with essential oils and soap to make the perfect lather.
DIY Sugar Lip Scrub
Winter weather can wreak havoc on your lips. Harsh temperatures and dry weather leave lips feeling cracked, chapped, and anything but kissable. I swear by DIY sugar lip scrubs and love treating myself with a lip treatment. The benefits of exfoliating your lips 2-3 times a week are endless. To create your own luscious lip scrub, use 1/2 cup cocoa butter, three tablespoons of olive oil, and 1/2 cup of sugar. Combined together, the ingredients will congeal into a nourishing lip scrub.
DIY Pore-Refining Face Mask
Raise your hand if you ever feel victimized by your pore-size. I think we all can agree that enlarged pores are a pressure point in skincare. While pore size is genetic, egg white is proven to help minimize the appearance of pores. When mixed with cocoa butter and honey, the solution also targets moisture and blemishes to create the perfect trifecta of a face mask.
BONUS: Pamper Your Pets!
If you didn’t think I’d find a way to include Minnie in my beauty journey, you are so wrong, friend! When the temperature changes, dogs paws are subject to burns from the hot pavement as well as dryness from winter snow. Treat your dog to a little pampering by utilizing Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Solid Formula’s healing properties. I like to dab a little bit of cocoa butter on the bottom of Minnie’s paws and massage her until the formula seeps into her skin. Dogs deserve a little R&R, too!
