Doing Drugstore: Palmer's Dark Chocolate Peppermint Lip Butter

Doing Drugstore: Palmer's Dark Chocolate Peppermint Lip Butter

I have a hard time going into Walgreens without picking up some sort of lip thing or other, and my initial purchase of Palmer's lip butter ($2) was no exception. I've always loved Palmer's cocoa butter — my dear mama swears by the stuff, and even sometimes sends me care packages with sticks of it — but I've only used it as a hair and elbow/knee moisturizer.

I assumed anything made with cocoa butter would be creamy and need a little heat to deliquesce, so I was pleasantly surprised by the lip butter's moist, gel texture (I think the result of added vitamin E). It's clear and not sticky, but gives you a little more shine than a Blistex or Lip Smacker, the dark chocolate peppermint flavor isn't at all artificial, and I didn't need to reapply all the time, which is a boon when you're trying not to look like a crazy lip balm obsessive. If you want a traditional gloss shine, this isn't the product for you, but at $2 it's a total steal, and it's made in the US, so you can feel good about its origins, too. My overall verdict: Yum!

I saw an ad at pregnancy.org about Palmers being involved in a class action suit regarding their cocoa butter products. I believe the link they were posting is at palmerssettlement.com. PLease look into this if you have ever used it .
