Palmerâ€™s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil Review
How are you all doing? I am trying to be floatier and less moody so itâ€™s a really busy time for me.
Before I talk about todayâ€™s product, let me share my recent discovery- I have found out a kohl pencil by a brand Skin Shades which is probably the in-house product of Schwan Stabilo Cosmetics. It is the same company that manufactures makeup for Lakme. I am not enjoying the new Eyeconic at all but this Skin Shades thing is the bomb. It is ultra dark and doesnâ€™t budge all day. You cannot remove it with plain water even if you rub. New love for sure!
Now the product review on hand! Today I am reviewing an oil that Ana sent me. Palmerâ€™s is a great brand for skin care so I was excited about using this oil. Letâ€™s find out more.
About Palmerâ€™s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil
Price– INR 460 for 60 ml
The oil comes in a transparent bottle with a white flip top cap. The cap shuts tightly but Iâ€™ll not risk carrying it without packing it in a plastic bag.
Texture and Fragrance
The oil smells like chocolate! I mean a chocolaty oil is like a dream come true. It is very light and gets absorbed into the skin easily. The oil is yellowish in color.
My experience with Palmerâ€™s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil
So, it is light and smells amazing but does it do what it claims? It is a good face moisturizer but does nothing more than that. I havenâ€™t noticed any change in uneven skin tone. I think I have the worst hippo-skin I use it every alternate night while the directions on the pack say to use it thrice daily. So maybe I am not getting results as I am not following the instructions. I have been using it since last one month and I cannot use the same product thrice on my face. I prefer using different products for day & night skin care and thatâ€™s it. Three-time skin care is not for me so even if this product works when used in the prescribed way; I would never find that out. Using a product thrice a day is asking too much and I donâ€™t like the idea. I tried applying it during the day but itâ€™s heavy for day usage on oily skin.
Even though I used it just at night it gave me a few pimples so I donâ€™t think that itâ€™s the best thing for oily skin.
For the rest of the body, it is too light to provide proper hydration. My skin feels stretchy even after applying it. I think this oil is more suitable for climates that are somewhat humid. Scars, I donâ€™t have and I havenâ€™t seen any difference on stretch marks on my thighs
To me, itâ€™s just a light moisturizer for face and body that is asking for too much attention.
What I like about Palmerâ€™s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil
- The chocolate laden fragrance.
- Light moisturizer for face.
- Girls with dry skin can use it on face during day as well.
What I donâ€™t like about Palmerâ€™s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil
- As per instructions, it needs to be used thrice a day that is too much for me.
- Does not provide adequate hydration to dry body-skin.
- Not effective on uneven skin tone and stretch marks.
- Needed to be used thrice a day.
- It is light but still not fit for oily skin as it might cause breakouts.
Do I recommend? Just for its heavenly scent.
