Palmer’s Raw Shea Body Lotion Review

It’s not often that a budget body lotion is worthy of it’s own blog post. Does the Palmer’s Raw Shea Body Lotion deserve it? One thousand times YES!

Palmer's Raw Shea Body Lotion Pretty Please Charlie

Palmer’s Raw Shea Body Lotion

Palmer’s combined African Marula Oil, Vitamin E and Oatmeal Extract with Raw Shea Butter and created a lotion that makes my heart skip a beat. How can you get that excited about a body lotion, you may ask?

I have very dry, super sensitive skin that gets lathered in lotion or cream after every shower. From top to toe. I go through a lot of product very quickly. My ultimate body lotion should leave my skin soft, smooth, nourished and it should not break the bank. I also need it to keep my skin looking and feeling moisturised for the whole day and work with my sensitive (often temperamental) skin.

Palmer’s, your body lotion ticks all the boxes. I seriously love it.

What also impressed me is the fact that even though the lotion is not very thick, it still feels rich and nourishing. It absorbs quickly and will not make your skin feel suffocated which makes it great for summer.

The key ingredients of this beauty are:

  • African Raw Shea Butter: deeply moisturizes and softens skin
  • Marula Oil: improves texture and radiance
  • Oatmeal Extract: calms and soothes irritation
  • Vitamin E: rejuvenates and combats free radical damage
  • Grapeseed Oil: keeps skin looking youthful
  • Sunflower Seed Oil: balances tone and texure
  • Soybean Oil: helps prevent skin dehydration

The formula is also paraben-, phthalates-, sulphate-, mineral oil-, gluten- and dye free.

I was worried about the scent…

I know that Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula is a cult favourite, but I do not like it at all. The formulations of all the products in the range are gorgeous, yes, but the sweet scent has always put me off. I was worried that I would have the same experience with the Shea Formula, but this lotion smells amazing. Think subtle and clean. It is gorgeous. Really and truly.

I am so happy with Palmer’s Raw Shea Body Lotion and it will be bought over and over again. And I don’t have to feel guilty as 400ml goes for only R60. Make sure to grab one next time you’re in Clicks or Dis-Chem. You won’t be sorry.

  1. I was also usually put of by the sweet smell of the rest of the Palmer’s product range. So if you say it’s not the same, I’m definitely going to give this one a chance, thanks for the review!
