Palmer’s Cocoa Butter products are a familiar sight on the shelves of many UK high street pharmacies and shops, and we’re used to an inexpensive brand with a reasonable reputation. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Bust Cream is no exception. So is it the bargain its price suggests?
The cream (which Palmer’s claims ‘smoothes on like a gel’) contains a number of typical ingredients often found in these products, such as Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and Vitamin E. As with all of these bust creams, there’s the predictable ‘exclusive’ element, which here is the Bio C-Elaste™ – a combination of Collagen, Elastin, Centella Asiatic, Sweet Almond Oil and Argan Oil. Palmer’s promises that this concoction will ‘help moisturize and support skin around the bust area for increased tone and firmness.’
What’s interesting about this promise is the clear absence of claims that the cream will magically lift the bust, provide an invisible bra, or increase its size; something most bust creams feel the need to shout about. So on that basis alone, I will review the product on its moisturising effectiveness relative to its bargain basement price.
There’s no fancy bottle to display on your bathroom shelf. This cream looks just like everything else produced by the Palmer’s brand: an unassuming blend of brown and orange on a plain white background. It also smells exactly the same too – users of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Stretch Marks Cream and their Original Ultra Moisturising Lip Balm will be familiar with the not unpleasant, biscuity fragrance.
The cream absorbs easily and, immediately after application, my breasts felt moisturised and smooth. Used regularly each day over a month this effect continued, and I had no complaints whatsoever. This is clearly not a ‘miracle product’, nor is it claiming to be, so for that reason alone I reckon it’s a solid and worthwhile part of your daily beauty routine.
Verdict: A familiar product at a purse-friendly price, which makes no unreasonable promises and does what it says on the tin. Highly recommended for tight budgets and dry skin.
