Product Review: Nadinola Cocoa Butter Cream

Hi guys! As we all know (at least in my opinion), the worst thing about winter is that it leaves your skin screaming for moisture. I've had my share of moisturizers in the past, so I think I'm experienced enough to conclude that Nadinola Cocoa Butter Cream is one of my favorite moisturizers.

Here's the detailed review:


Name: Nadinola Cocoa Butter Cream

Price: Dirt cheap! I got my for 99 pennies at Walmart.

Where to get it: I got my at Walmart by the ethnic hair care products, along with fade cream and all that jazz.

Packaging: Plain old white jar, unoriginal, not really sanitary.

Ingredients: Water, Theobroma Cacao (cocoa) Seed butter, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Petrolatum, Cocos Nucifera (coconut) oil, Mineral oil, Cetayl Alcohol, Clyceryl Stearate, Stearyl Alcohol, Glycol tearate, Porpylene Glycol, Triethanolamin, Lanolin, Dimethicone, Tetrasodim EDTA, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Fragrance, Yello 6.

Overall rating: 4.5 out of 5

Will I repurchase: YES!!

Pro:

--Smells AMAZING!!!! White chocolate anyone? It doens't smell like the synthetic chocolate that makes me sick, it's SOO light and natural! I love it!
--Very moisturizing. I use it on my body and face alike, and it works very well either way.
--Its texture. It looks really thick, but it's almost whipped at your finger's touch. It's AMAZING!
--Fast absorbtion. I don't have to wait 30 mins before I put on clothes.
--CHEAP!!! Need I say more?
--It doesn't break me out
--Cocoa butter is the 2nd ingredient on the list! Usually it's like the 5th one.

Con:

--The packaging.
--It doesn't come in a bigger size, at the rate I'm using it, I think I need new one every month.

Some close ups:

See how thick it looks?


Whipped cream anyone?


It's almost liquidy when it touches your skin!


How it looks after 1 minute:


Overall, GREAT product!


That's it y'all! Have a great week!

Nice review! Although, it looks too thick for my oily skin.

That cream looks really good! How come we don't have cheap stuff like that in Canadian Wal-Marts...

I bought it after reading great reviews on MUA and I like it. However, I've also heard that paraben is bad and this cream has it. Any thoughts? BTW Thanks Tao! You're too cute!

I've look for it several x's, no luck, only found the fade cream. But, I need to finish 20 oz cetaphil & 6 oz nivea cream before consider trying this. If it works, it's a really good deal, thanks.
