I was so excited to see this. I mean - Mint and Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is one of my favourite flavours. 

But the excitement was short lived. This has an SPF content - which I knew when I bought it, but I thought it'd be ok, because Palmer's is a well known and trusted brand, that the making your tongue numb thing wouldn't be an issue. But it was. I know it's not just me that has this issue, as when I told Anissa, she replied, 'oh, I hate that' So, while I love the smell, I'll only keep it to smell, or just throw it out cos I'll never use it again.
Also, what is with the oval shaped tunes? Am I the only one that finds them hard to apply? 
While I am at it, why, does a company as big as Palmers still release a product with their cocoa butter still lumpy? It it truly an awful sensation when you apply it.
I am not a negative person, usually, but the only positive thing about this product is the scent!

Be kind.
