1-REVLON NATURAL HONEY LOTION FOR DARK SKIN IN NIGERIA
Revlon natural honey lotion has gone a long way with me. It is one of the creams for dark skin in NIgeria that has been around for a very long while. It’s not written on the body that it is specific for dark skin, but the ingredients used helps one to maintain their complexion while keeping their skin healthy and plump and that’s why I highly recommend it as a cream for black skin. Also, on the body of revlon natural honey lotion, it is written “designed for African skin” Although one thing about revlon lotion is that it dries off more than other moisturizing lotions containing honey. Revlon lotion costs 2,500 Nigerian Naira.
Some of the ingredients present in revlon natural honey lotion includes ;
I know two variants of girlfriend hand and body lotion that could be used by people with dark skin types, they are;
Girl friend cocoa butter with coconut oil hand and body lotion and
Girl friend fantasy lanolin hand an body lotion
The girl friend fantasy lanolin hand and body lotion has a more moisturizing effect and exotic fragrance that the girlfriend cocoa butter with coconut oil hand and body lotion but I would still pick the girl friend cocoa butter with coconut oil over the other one as a good cream for dark skin.
I especially love anything that has cocoa butter and then with the mix of coconut oil that helps to attain a glowing skin, it’s a must.
This lotion is a good lotion for a dark skinned family in Nigeria because it is big and it is absolutely lovely.
Girlfriend hand and body lotion costs 2,000 Nigerian Naira.

Palmer’s cocoa butter formula is another good cream for dark or chocolate skin in Nigeria. I have used this particular lotion and I love everything about it just that I wouldn’t advice anyone with an oily skin to use Palmers cocoa butter lotion on their face because it could clog their pores and cause breakouts.
I wrote an entire review about Palmer’s cocoa butter lotion.
5- NIVEA RICH NOURISHING DEEP MOISTURE CREAM FOR DARK SKIN
Nivea rich nourishing cocoa is another good cream for dark skin that is also a good moisturizer. It contains almond oil and vitamin E serum which helps to lock in moisture.
Here are the ingredients used in the production of Nivea rich nourishing deep moisture cream ;
PEG-40 sorbitan perisostearate
Prunus amygdalus dulcis oil
6- VASELINE COCOA BUTTER
Vaseline cocoa butter like other vaseline products contains cocoabutter and helps to keep the skins moisture intact while maintaining the skins complexion although some people complain that it makes them darker, but i would say that it works just fine for dark skin tones.
I have a dark skinned friend in Nigeria that uses this cocoa care lotion for her dark skin. So far she has been using it, about two years now, its been great on her skin and I would recommend it to other persons with dark skin. Cocoa care lotion costs 1,000 Nigerian Naira.
Here are the cocoa care lotion ingredients;
11- DOVE SILK GLOW BODY SILK CREAM FOR DARK SKIN
Dove silk glow body silk cream is another good option for dark skin. Dove silk glow cream helps the body to maintain a moisturized and silky skin look although it feels a little bit greasy on the skin after you have applied it on your skin, but overall, it is a good cream for people with dark skin.
