$15.27 for 50 ml
-Lightweight nourishing cream
-Ideal for dry skin
-24-hour moisture lock.
Dr Organic Cocoa Butter is sourced organically from the exotic and rural plains of the Dominican Republic. This lightweight, dermatologically-tested day cream has specifically designed to moisturise and nourish the skin.
One of nature’s most enriching and pure moisturizers, Cocoa Butter has been used for millennia by the native population of the Dominican Republic due to its unrefined qualities. Dr Organic Cocoa Butter Day Cream is boosted by a whole host of bioactive extracts such as Aloe Vera Juice, Avocado Oil and Apricot Fruit. This deeply nourishing emollient is particularly useful on areas of dryness and helps to leave the skin feeling softened and smoothed.
My Experience with Dr Organic Cocoa Butter Day Cream:
The product comes in an unsealed cardboard box. It is brown all over depicting the cocoa and has this chocolate pictures all over which is a little tempting. There is information of the product on the box.
Once you open the box, the jar of day cream resides in it. The jar is made of thick glass and has a white plastic cap. There is very little information available on the glass jar. The product comes unsealed, but you can clearly see if anyone has scooped out because it has a very fine finish in the jar.
The screw cap closes well and you can make sure that there is no leakage. The product is travel-friendly. The tub packaging makes it a little unhygienic.
The day cream is creamy and is light brown in color. It has a delicious smell of cocoa, but not very strong. Probably because it is natural, I assume the fragrance is faint. It smells a little bit like dark chocolate. The consistency is like that of body butter.
The product has a thick texture and with a little massage, it gets completely absorbed into the skin. It doesn’t leave any greasy residue. It creates a matte effect. The cream is very soft and kind of melts like butter onto the skin. The product once absorbed onto the skin can be hardly felt and it is definitely lightweight. I have combination skin, but nose corners are very dry. From the first time I used the product, I noticed that the dryness was long gone. The product makes it a perfect product for dry skin. However, you can use it for all kind of skin types except oily skin, but it might be a little heavy for summers especially for normal and combination skin types. The product is also suitable for sensitive skin and doesn’t cause any breakouts.
The product contains Aloe vera, Avocado and Apricot oil for added benefits. The product makes skin very soft and smooth. You can feel the suppleness on the skin. The product is well moisturizing and nourishes the skin well. It eliminates any dry flakes from the skin. While the product has very good moisturizing abilities, after a while, you will feel a little less moisturisation felt on the skin. The product moisturizes for around 8-10 hours which is very good. The product also provides a good base for makeup too. The product is organic and is free from parabens, colorants, sulfates and any artificial chemicals which is great. The product is a little expensive and also it doesn’t contain SPF and I wish that it contains a little for that added sun protection. So summing up
