Sample Sunday: Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Review

I was looking though my stash of product samples and I got really excited when I saw this particular one. I have memories of using this particular cocoa butter cream years ago, when my mom had some while pregnant with my sister (this works wonders on stretch marks, apparently). I remember I used to love using this cream too because it smelled like a mixture of chocolate and marshmallows.

Having tried it again, I can see why this is a well known brand for solving skin dilemmas such as stretch marks. This is a very hydrating cream while also being super comfortable. Meaning: your skin will be silky soft without ever having that sticky feeling so many super hydrating body lotions seem to have.

Trying out this sample seriously has made me consider buying myself a bottle. This is such a great cream to have on hand in the summertime. Your freshly shaved legs will never be softer than when you use this afterwards!

But the question you're probably all wondering... does it really/still smell like chocolate and marshmallows? Sadly, I think my childhood knowledge of scents was a bit underdeveloped 10 years ago, because while this cream does have a sweet cocoa butter-esque scent, it's not quite s'mores scented!
