Palmers Swivel Stick | Review

Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick *

Having dry skin can always be an issue for me no matter what time of year. Occasionally I get dry patches on my face or my hands, which just looks plain stupid and is pretty uncomfortable to suffer… I don’t really own a compact face cream that I can fit in my handbag in order to carry it with me wherever I go. 

When I heard about Palmers Swivel Stick, I was really intrigued to see what it was like. I’m already a fan of its Daily Calming Lotion, so was hoping for the same results with the Swivel Stick.

The Swivel Stick aims to soothe and soften dry, chapped lips, but it's also great to apply on other areas to moisturise your skin. With added SPF30, it's useful to keep with you for added protection for your cheeks, nose and other exposed areas when in the sun (although obviously don't swap your suntan lotion for this).

It definitely lives up to its Palmers brand name. The smell of cocoa butter is insane. I’m still not a fan of the strong scent – I just can’t get used to it. Whenever I apply this product on my face, all I smell is chocolate. It’s even worse when I apply it around my nose. I can’t get away from it then!

The size and shape of the product means it’s great to keep in your handbag for emergencies or a skin care pick-me-up. It's helped save my skin from any sudden dryness during the winter months, but it won't be replacing my favourite lip care product. 

For around £6, it's useful to have but it's not essential. I won't be repurchasing it though, purely because of the extreme smell of chocolate lingering around my nose (it doesn't even smell like nice Cadburys chocolate. I could handle that). It is useful to have for emergencies though, and the product will last a very long time as you only need to use a minimal amount at a time, so it's worth the money!
