BeautyTipToday Crowns Queen Helene Cocoa Butter Winner
We can't help it, we are ADDICTED to cocoa butter!
We love the smell of it, but most importantly, we can't believe how super soft it makes our skin.
Our hands used to look so dry and rough, especially during the very cold winter months. And that's when we started making cocoa butter an important part of our daily beauty routine.
And Beauty Tip Today is excited to crown the Cocoa Butter Winner:
This brand of effective moisturizer has been around for a very long time---80 years to be exact. The good news--Queen Helene is cheap, can be bought at your local drugstore, and works as well, if not better, than the very expensive cocoa butters out there.
We are in love with 2 of Queen Helene's cocoa butter products:
1. Cocoa Butter Hand and Body Lotion. Just $3.49 for a 32 oz. bottle at Walgreens.
2. Cocoa Butter Creme. Only $5.79 for a 15 oz. tub at CosmeticSolutions.
So, what's in Queen Helen's cocoa butter products? A blend of cocoa butter and pure lanolin. Maybe that's the beauty magic. You can appply it to your crow's feet, stretch marks, your entire body for instant softness. It absorbs wonderfully.
Both smell divine, especially their hand and body lotion.
We did a little research on the benefits of cocoa butter. And if you having been using it, continue to do so. Cocoa butter is full of great things for your skin. We found that out at the bodyshop.com blog:
"Cocoa butter is, first and foremost, arguably one of the best natural emollients to be found. It’s a traditional moisturizer, as the EGCG blog points out, used for centuries to keep people’s skin in many nations soft and protected. And because it melts at body temperature, it is more easily and readily absorbed by the skin. Its natural, subtle chocolate scent also makes your skin smell like dessert, and who doesn’t want to smell like a cupcake?"
You're right. It's good to smell like a cupcake!
