After using the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula on my body for a good chunk of the winter season and loving the massive dose of hydration and cocoa butter scent, I knew I had to try the newest product from Palmer’s - Skin Therapy Oil FACE ($9.99 CDN).
Skin Therapy Oil FACE is an age-defying, multipurpose skin perfecting oil. This non-greasy, paraben-free facial treatment is formulated with all of the same great ingredients used in the bestselling Skin Therapy Oil, but amped up with even more face-loving, anti- aging ingredients.Forget the past with this lightweight anti-aging facial treatment. Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil FACE is specially- formulated with the Cetesomate-E Complex to deliver targeted anti-aging skin care benefits directly to the face and rejuvenate skin, while restoring and brightening skin tone and texture.
Skin Therapy Oil FACE is formulated with all of the same ingredients as the Skin Therapy Oil, which is an all-over oil so it works for both the face and body. The FACE version of this oil contains extra oils like Sweet Almond Oil, Sesame Oil, Coconut Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Apricot Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Camelina Oil, Sunflower Oil, Rosehip Oil and Argan Oil that all act to lift and firm skin while improving any uneven skin tone and texture. This face oil also contains retinol (anti-aging) and vitamin C (antioxidant).
Oils can sound a little scary at first and we have definitely seen quite a number of facial oils emerge in the beauty market in the last little while. I have used high end oils before and while they did work to hydrate and moisturize my skin in a whole new way, I honestly found the Palmer’s face oil to be the same if not better! First of all, I thought I was going to have a face smelling like cocoa, but it is actually fragranced with rosehip oil which is absolutely lovely. It’s so subtly floral that you barely even noticed it once on your face. All I needed was 2-3 drops for my face and even though the oil can take awhile to absorb, my skin looked MUCH BETTER by morning. Less redness, more even toned and fewer dry patches.
The Skin Therapy Oil FACE took anywhere from 1-2 hours to completely absorb which I think is fairly understandable for facial oils. I only use it at night for this reason because God knows, I don’t have the time in the morning to wait that long! My skin has been freaking out from testing makeup and other skincare lines and has been manifesting its anger in the form of red bumps and patches of dryness on my cheeks and forehead. Using this oil definitely mellowed my skin out and forced it to behave. The blend of oils seemed to soothe my patchy red skin and I was actually quite pleasantly surprised at the effect it had! I feel like for the price and the results, if you have skin like mine or just want to give your skin an anti-aging treat, try this oil and see what you think!
Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil FACE is available at Wal-Mart.
