The Palmer’s Cocoa Butter family has recently introduced two new products. Let us introduce you to the Firming Body Lotion and Exfoliating Body Lotion:

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Firming Body Lotion visibly firms, tightens, and tones the skin.

Its unique formula includes Cocoa Butter, Collagen, Elastin and Shea Butter to support the skin’s elasticity and provide deep 48 hour hydration.

Ginseng, Vitamin E and Co Enzyme Q10 work together to directly address any loss of tightness, leaving skin feeling rejuvenated and toned.

Additional benefits of regular, ongoing use include protection against the oxidative stress caused by free radicals (known to accelerate the ageing process).

After eight weeks, participants of an independent study* reported:
• 100% more visibly toned skin
• 94% smoother, less dimpled skin
• 90% improved firmness and texture

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Exfoliating Body Lotion visibly smoothes rough, bumpy skin.

In an exciting development for the brand, this lotion contains Alpha Hydroxy Acids (AHAs) to exfoliate dead skin cells and smooth bumpy skin, to keep it looking radiant. Cocoa Butter, Coconut and Shea Butter act as powerful skin prebiotics, while the AHAs provide a healthy dose of postbiotics.

Together, this supercharged combination not only helps to maintain healthy skin microbiome, it leaves skin feeling smoother and softer.


After four weeks, participants of an independent study** reported:

• 100% improved skin texture
• 100% improved skin smoothness
• 94% reduced appearance of bumpy skin

Both products have been tested by dermatologists and are free of nasties such as parabens and phthalates, while both formulas have been clinically proven to deliver powerful results.

Palmer’s new Cocoa Butter Firming Body Lotion and Cocoa Butter Exfoliating Body Lotion are available to purchase for $13.99 per 400ml bottle from leading retailers including Chemist Warehouse, Priceline, Big W and Kmart.

* Independent in-use test; 52 subjects after 8 weeks
** Independent clinical in-use test; 38 subjects after 4 weeks

  1. Palmers Cocoa Butter is well known for it’s naturally based and affordable skin care products, so I was excited to trial two of their newer products – Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Firming Lotion and Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Retexture Renew Exfoliating Body Lotion.
    I like that all Palmers skin products are paraben and phthalate free. I also like the fact that it is part of their company philosophy to ethically and sustainably source any of the ingredients they use. Big wins!
    Both Palmer’s products absorb into the skin well and have plenty of nourishing ingredients that leave your skin well hydrated – with no greasy residue, and they do make your skin feel lovely. In addition, the large 400ml bottles mean they are great for everyday use.
    Both have a fairly neutral fragrance but I preferred the exfoliating lotion smell – it has a lovely, fresh citrus scent.
    I really liked each product, and after aprox 2 weeks trial use, I can say that both seem to work well and do leave my skin silky soft.
    Of the two products my favourite is probably the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Retexture Renew Exfoliating Body Lotion. I like that my whole body gets exfoliated with daily use, providing my skin with a gentle revitalising effect ( and I do enjoy the lemony smell).

  2. Thank you Beauty and Lace for the offer to review these body lotions. My skin gets extremely dry in winter so I was looking forward to trying them. I was not disappointed as I loved them both. I especially loved the exfoliating body lotion as I really saw a difference with my skin. Instead of dry and flaky my skin was smooth and moisturised. I am so happy with both of these body lotions and would recommend them to everyone.

  3. After spending the last two weeks in hospital my skin was in dire need of moisturising! Palmer’s Firm Tones Firming Body Lotion was the first lotion to go on my sorely neglected skin. First impression was that the smell is amazing!! As a lover of chocolate this definitely appeals to me on a sensory level and the lotion goes on smoothly and absorbs perfectly. My skin just inhaled it! This will be my go to body lotion as my skin continues to feel baby soft all the time now, I even bought some for my mums Christmas hamper this year.
    Palmer’s Retexture Renew Exfoliating Body Lotion, while not as thick a lotion as the firming lotion, does absorb well and also smells quite decadent. I have only used this a couple of times so far on the rough bumpy parts of my skin but so far the results have been pretty good, another couple of weeks should hopefully show improvement in those areas.
    All in all I was impressed with both of these lotions, but my favourite is definitely the firming lotion and looking forward to my mum trying it as well!

  4. Thank you Palmer’s and Beauty & Lace for this opportunity to review these products…. just loved them.  I was pleasantly surprised when the Palmer’s products arrived, such generously sized bottles as I tend to use lots of moisturiser everyday!   I love these products especially the usual fragrances and how lovely they moisturise your skin, I must say I prefered the fragrance of the exfoliating  moisturiser best.  I used each product on different sides of my body to check the differences.  I must say I loved how the  exfoliating moisturiser did help reduce the peeling I had ony knee and would say it is my favourite of the two bottles.  

    I think these moisturisers are good value and offer really good benefits.  I will be looking for these products to form part of my normal beauty routine and recommend them to anyone looking for a quality product that lives up to its promise.

  5. Thank you for the Palmer’s Retexture Renew Exfoliating Body Lotion and Firms Tones Firming Body Lotion.

    I have used Palmer’s products previously and like the feel and scent of them and the way they are absorbed.

    These two were no different. The Retexture Renew Exfoliating Body Lotion has an okay scent, but definitely different to the Cocoa Butter, and a good feel. It was absorbed easily and seemed to smooth my skin and soften rough areas. You don’t need to use much, so it lasts really well.

    The Firms Tones Firming Body Lotion has a nice consistency and an even better scent. Again, I didn’t need to use a lot to get the job done. I feel my skin feels firmer with not too much to notice physically yet, although I feel this will come with more time. It does feel like I’m treating myself.

    These two creams work well together and I definitely recommend.
