I’ve been using Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil for almost two weeks now and I’m impressed.
A pump nozzle to dispense the oil makes it easy to use and avoids spilling all over the place. Pumping the right amount does take a bit of getting used too though because when you push the pump all the way down it shoots out a lot of oil.
I applied Skin Therapy Oil on four areas – face, neck, CS keloid and stretch marks.
Surprisingly, oil was easily absorbed in all areas.
Stretch Marks: Creams I used during pregnancy did not work on my skin. Almost two years after giving birth via CSection to two kids, marks became faint white lines – no noticeable change so far. I have accepted the fact that my pregnancy marks will stay with me forever and I’m happy with that.
CS Keloids: Occasionally my stitch gets really itchy, makes me want to cut it open and scratch the insides. Therapy Oil didn’t solve problem but it eased itchy level by half.
Face & Neck: I stopped using a day & night cream to fully embrace benefits Palmer’s oil has to offer. I pump oil directly on my palm and use my fingers to apply. As expected it felt greasy at first but as soon as I move from forehead to cheeks, shine and greasy feel gone. I have a pimple scar on my chin and it has become lighter. However, I have not tried going out exposed in the sun with just the oil on my face. I did put on Clinique’s BB cream 10 minutes after applying oil in my face and it didn’t feel heavy or greasy, it actually helped even distribution of BB cream.
Will I purchase and recommend Palmers Skin Therapy Oil?
Yes I will. This is the first time that I’ve tried oil product on my face, I used coconut oil before and my skin had a negative reaction. My face definitely feels softer and that is just after two weeks. My husband even said that I look well rested (I’m still breastfeeding LittleMiss 3 to 4 times at night) and face is smoother.
Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil retails for AED 42 (may differ slightly on stores). AED 1 from every purchase will be donated to Breast Cancer Arabia.
