Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil Face Review

I’ve been hearing about Palmers Skin Therapy Oil for the Face for a minute and I finally got my hands on it!. I’ve always been a big fan of Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Lotion and the Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil Body is awesome.  Although I don’t mind the cocoa butter (chocolate) scent of the lotion and oil for the Body, I was a bit concerned that the face oil would have the same scent.  Relief… It doesn’t!

Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil

What is Palmers Skin Therapy Oil?

Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil claims to improve a multitude of skincare issues including dark spots, fine lines & wrinkles, skin tone and skin texture.  With Retinol and Vitamin C, this Skin Oil is a fraction of the price of many higher end Retinol formulas.  The ingredient list in this face oil is quite impressive.  Let’s take a look…

Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil Face Review
Palmers Skin Therapy Oil Face includes 10 Pure Oils, Cocoa Butter, Retinol & Vitamin C which work together to address a multitude of skin concerns.

Ingredients in Palmers Skin Therapy Oil

Palmers Oil has 10 pure oils:  Sweet Almond Oil, Sesame Oil, Coconut Oil, Macadamina Nut Oil, Apricot Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Argan Oil, Rosehip Oil, Camelina Oil and Sunflower Oil.  WOW!  Combined with Cocoa Butter, these oils provide moisture and work to improve fine lines & wrinkles.  It also has Retinol AND Vitamin C which help to brighten the skin, even skin tone and texture and firm the skin.

Palmers Oil comes in an amber glass dropper which I appreciate.  Amber glass helps protect the oil and prevent it from breaking down.  I use 3-4 drops of the oil every night.  The oil is lightweight and absorbs easily into the skin.  It leaves a slight dewy finish to the skin and a nice glow!  I have normal to combination skin.  My skin is hydrated but not greasy or oily and I do not have to apply a moisturizer after applying the oil.  During the drier months that may change and those with dry skin may need to apply a moisturizer after the oil.

The amber bottle helps protect the ingredients in the face oil from breaking down.

The results I’ve seen from using Palmers Face Oil for a few weeks are quite impressive.  My skin tone has improved and my face appears brighter with a glow to it.  I have not seen much difference in fine lines/wrinkles after using this oil for a few weeks.  I have been using retinol in my skincare routine for many years and may not see a noticeable difference.  Overall,  Palmers Skin Therapy Oil Face is a keeper and I will purchase it again.  You can’t beat the price and the impressive list of ingredients.
