Palmer's All-In-One Mini Everywhere Balm - review


I received this product in a Priceline goodies bag and it took me a while to open it because I've had a few of these kinds of balms show up as GWPs over the past year, so it's been in a queue.

I was interested to see how it went because I usually find these kinds of balms to be rubbish for the lips (they're too slippery and greasy for me), but at least this one doesn't claim to be a dedicated lip balm and Palmer's is a brand I trust.

Happily I do like it, and while I don't use it as a lip balm, it's the best one of these kinds of balms that I've tried to date.

Palmer's claims/product details:

  • Combines 100% pure and natural cocoa butter, shea butter and coconut oil 
  • A super rich, superstar formula that's the ultimate beauty-on-the-go essential
  • The handy, 'take everywhere' sized tube fits easily in your handbag
  • Nourishing formula works perfectly as a lip balm and gloss, and softens cuticles and hydrates any dry spots
  • Free from artificial fragrance, yet smells absolutely delicious: like rich dark chocolate
  • RRP $5.99 AUD for 30g, but do shop around


This is a great product and I recommend it.

It's a standard, clear balm with the texture you'd expect from a product like this, although it's not as thick and greasy as some and it spreads and applies well. It does have a dark chocolate scent, although it's not a strong fragrance so it's not overpowering.

What I like about this is that it's one of the few balms of this nature that I can handle wearing on the lips. Most of them are too greasy and slippery for me so I end up tasting them all the time (and they transfer in a heartbeat), but this one sits on the lips better and also nourishes them better than the others I've tried - as opposed to sitting on top of them and travelling everywhere without delivering moisture.

Nevertheless I prefer to use this for other things. Eg my feet have been very dry and flaky recently after using a dud hand cream that I relegated to the foot-care department, and this balm helped clear the dryness up very quickly. It also sinks into the skin so well that my feet don't have that balm-covered sticky feeling after use: instead they feel soft and silky.

I've also been using it on some dry skin I have on my knees. Again, it's been great for that and it's helped smooth the skin out so I no longer have dark patches on my knees after I've self-tanned (never a good look ; )) because the balm has removed the dry patches so they don't cling to the tanner.

You could of course use this on the cuticles too, and if you've had issues with cuticle treatments being too slippery, you may find that this one works better for you.

Overall I think this is a great product that generally meets its claims and I recommend it. Plus it's cheap (especially if you can find it on special), and it's the best one of these kinds of balms that I've tried to date.
