Palmer's Skin Therapy Face Oil

Palmers skin therapy oil

Don't you just love picking up a bit of skincare in the supermarket? If you're food shopping, which is, let's face it a chore, then throwing some skincare or a bit of make up in your trolley is like a little reward. And if you can include it in your food shop bill, even better!  So when I go in to a supermarket, I always have a mooch in their beauty section just to see what's about and if there are any offers on.

So I'm having said mooch in Sainsbury's, as I was after a day moisturiser but I came across the Palmer's skin therapy face oil.  We all know Palmer's for their cocoa butter body cream, and its good, thick, creamy, has that love it or loath smell but it does work to lighten scarring.  But Palmer's seem to have picked up their game lately as I'm seeing more facial products coming out from them.  And they are so reasonably priced, this 30ml bottle was only £6.00.

The box says the oil visibly rejuvenates and helps to improve the appearance of - 

  • fine lines & wrinkles
  • dark spots
  • uneven skin tone
  • aging skin
This is a pipette bottle and at first I didn't like how runny the oil was, because I had previously been using Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair oil, which is much thicker.  But once I got used to the consistency of the oil, everything was ok.  I warm the oil up in between my fingers and apply on my face at night, after cleansing and before my night cream.  You can apply this without a night cream but in winter I like to go a bit overboard.  This has a rosehip fragrance which is neither strong or unpleasant.
It's a great facial oil.  It's full of good ingredients. It's £6.00. I like it.  

I've been using this for about 3 weeks now, most nights and I prefer it to the Estee Lauder night oil, which costs a lot more.  My skin does look better, brighter and I really think my dark spots (age spots/moles) aren't so visible.

This oil is easy to use, no fuss, almost unassuming, it just quietly gets on with its job, and it does it well.  The packaging and price point do not shout from the roof tops but don't hold that against it.  If you're looking to try a facial oil, without spending crazy amounts on other well known showy off brands, give this a try.  Sometimes it's the quiet ones you have to watch out for!
