Mia's Review: Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil for face [Sponsored]


video

If you're not familiar with Palmer's, they're founded in America more than 170 years ago in 1840, and has become one of the world's leading names in skincare, a brand that women around the world have grown up with. Their unique heritage and commitment to quality has stood against the test of time. Generations of families have loved the fantastic moisturising qualities of Palmer's skincare range, and millions of women around the word agree.
Their number 1 formula, Cocoa Butter Formula, is one of of Palmer's key offering in its wide range of skincare. Palmer's is committed to creating affordable products that really do work, and is growing to provide a Pamer's product for every skincare need: hand and body care, facial care, stretch mark care, hair care and personal care.
Using nature's richest, most luxurious ingredients, Palmer's key ingredients include Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and has created a Palmer's product for ever skincare need.
In addition, Palmer's is against animal testing and all of the products are cruelty free. Majority of Palmer's products are free of parabens, phthalates and sulphates.




Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil is a multi-purpose skin perfecting dry oil for both face and neck, and delivers a pure shot of nine super oils blended with Retinol and Vitamin C to breathe new life into the skin. With Palmer's unique Rapidermal Absorption Systeme, the ingredients is penetrated deep into the epidermal layer. What's more, Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil is hypoallergenic, free of parabens and phthalates too!

These remarkable super oils together with Retinol (Vitamin A) and Vitamin C help to heal, moisturise, reduce appearance of lines and wrinkles, lighten dark spots and even skin tone. To put it across simply, retinol helps to rejuvenate our skin by reducing our cells' turnover time and help prevent the breakdown of collagen, and vitamin C helps even out our skin tone and texture, and prevent sun damages to our skin. 

This lightweight facial oil treatment helps to:
1. Reduce lines and wrinkles
2. Lighten dark spots
3. Moisturise dry, aging skin
4. Brighten skin tone
5. Even skin tone


It comes in a handy bottle with a dropper attached capping that allows us to control how much oil to dispense each time. 

As to my usage, I apply 3 drops of the oil all over my face, and another 2 to 3 drops to my neck, and massage gently for better absorption. But being an oil, it still absorbs to a slightly oily sheen so I definitely recommend that you only use it at night, unless you do not put on any form of make up in the day. 

And after using it for a few nights, let's see how this treatment oil has worked for me.

Before

 After

As I've expected, I've experienced some initial (comedone-like) breakouts on my chin (my most breakout sensitive zone), probably due to the retinol (do google and read up on "initial breakout from retinol-a") but overall, there's definitely an inprovement in terms of skin tone and texture. You can also see a vast improvement in my acne depression scar (or was it chicken pox) on my left cheek (right cheek in the picture).

Before

After

Although the improvement at my neck is less obvious, (my 2 deep neckline didn't disappear) but they have definitely grown slightly lighter!

  3. I think for serums like this, it caters to certain types of skin. Yours had an obvious improvement. Definitely, this product will be good for a lot of people. It wouldn't last this long if it wasn't effective.

  4. I've heard a lot about this product, but my face is too sensitive to try anything! Thanks for sharing this product though!

  5. Seems a good result on you. But I've heard that the products don't suit with all skin type.

  7. I'll be checking our Watson's store here for it. What I now have for reviewing is all organic Maracuja oil, I'm just not sure it's for the face. I never thought I'd say this, but I'm interested to check out the skin therapy oil for my wrinkles.:))

  10. What would you do if you did not like a sponsored product review? Is there an expectation to be honest about your opinion? Or do the sponsors have the right to stop the publishing of your negative opinion? Please advise.

    1. so far it hasn't happened that i have nothing to like about a sponsored product. but if it ever happens (the product harmed me in one way or another), then obviously i won't be publishing a post to say that it's good. that's pure scam.

  11. I didn't really see the visible effect though. I can't see it in the pictures of before and after. Hmmm, might be because of the picture's quality.

  12. I could definitely see a slight difference in your before and after photos, maybe you could post again after finishing the regimen?

  13. Heard a lot about PALMER'S product and this one is new to me. Just give us more updates about the effect. Thanks.

  14. I'm palmer's product user and pretty satisfied with their products..

  15. The changes are not much but I'm sure in a few weeks it would be more evident. I guess this would also be relaxing to the skin.

  16. The company has always made great products for the skin. I'm glad the oil helped improve your skin.

  17. To be honest, Palmer's products have never worked for me. I've tried their moisturizers and lip balms, but never felt that they're very hydrating on my skin. I've never tried their oils though.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I haven't tried any of Palmer's products yet. Would love to try this all-around oil 'cause it does seem very handy! I'll definitely try and look for this on my next visit to the drugstore. :)

  19. I began using a retinol cream two days ago and stopped today after noticing irritation. My skin feels and looks papery and it gives me the appearance of being wrinklier and older. I'm wondering if this is a normal side effect while getting used to retinol or if I shouldn't be using it at all. Thank you!
