Palmers offered me the chance to try out some of their Body Butters, and offered me some more "manly" scents, I was intrigued. Palmers, to me, means cocoa butter, and much as I love it, it's not exactly manly. I shouldn't have been concerned. I received two tubs, the Shea Body Butter, and the Coconut Body Butter.
The coconut is a much lighter smell than I imagined, and SqueakyDaddy, who I enlisted as chief tester, said he liked it. Strong words indeed. It's subtle, and after 5 minutes, the smell has pretty much worn off, so he can use it before work, and by the time he's driven there, no-one would be any the wiser that he might be the kind of man who uses *shock horror* moisturiser!
|L-R: Coconut Body Butter, Shea Body Butter|
It might be an unusual gift for a man, but you know they're not going to get the same from anyone else. Whether you've got a style-conscious teen in the house, a metrosexual man about town, a sunburnt hubby in need of a bit of TLC, or grandpa who's great at administering hugs, I think a Palmers Body Butter would make a great stocking filler. Oh, and they're pretty cool for women too! At £4.99 for a 170g tub, they're an affordable bit of luxury against the winter weather and a perfect Christmas treat.
