Palmers Skin Therapy Oil Face - Review + Giveaway


From previous posts, you know the importance I place on using face creams and how important it is to truly take care of you skin once you've hit that lovely "mid-twenties" mark.

The latest trend that's sweeping the skin care aisles are oils. Not oils for your body, but for your face. To many, this sounds absurd! But there are many benefits to using oils on your face.

Most oils are rich in antioxidants and vitamins. Because of their super nourishing powers, it helps against dry skin. And for those of you who live in Canada (or Boston & area), you're probably suffering from dry skin at this very moment.

Up until recently, I've never used Palmer's products. However I've been using two of their oils (one body, the other face) and I'm in love.  Keep reading for review & giveaway!


Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil Face is said to help reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, improve the look of dark spots and uneven skin tone and moisturize - all while being light weight to be able to wear year-round!

It contains pure cocoa butter, which they are known for using, to provide moisturization, Cetesomate-E Complex which is supposed to help the oil absorb quickly into your skin, Retinol, which is we know is one of the most powerful anti-aging ingredients out there, as well as 10 essential oils that deliver quite a punch!

I've never looked into the powers of oils for you skin up until now, and let me tell you, I'm converted!  These are the oils that are found in Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil Face, and you might be surprised at how these can help you.

- Grapeseed Oil:  This oil can help regulate your natural oil production.
- Argan Oil: Contains a high level of fatty acids and vitamin E.
- Rosehip Oil: Not only dose it add a nice natural smell, this oil contains vitamin C and A (which is a natural retinol) and  helps fade scars.
- Coconut Oil: Naturally antibacterial and anti-fungal, this is a great moisturizer and smells amazing.
- Sweet Almond Oil: Rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and E, making it a good moisturizer for dry skin (without blocking pores), wrinkles, fine lines, blemishes, dark spots and promotes blood circulation which can help prevent stretch marks.
- Sesame Oil: Naturally antibacterial, antiviral and an anti-inflammatory. Rich in antioxidants and can help prevent blackheads, clear away pimples and even help fade dark spots.
- Macadamia Nut Oil: Contains a high concentration of palmitoleic acid which is supposed to help against wrinkles. Also a great emollient that penetrates deeper into your skin for longer lasting moisture.
- Camelina Oil: Contains vitamin E, moisturizing (great for eczema or psoriasis) and helps repair damaged cells (anti-aging).
- Apricot Oil: A light oil that is great for sensitive skins and highly emollient.
- Sunflower Oil: Contains vitamin E and essential fatty acids, helps reduce acne, prevent premature aging and moisturizes.

At this point, you're probably wondering if it's as good as it sounds. The answer is YES!

After a few weeks of testing this out, my skin loves it. My skin soaked it up quickly and I was able to apply my makeup within a few minutes. I was afraid that I was going to be oily throughout the day, however I wasn't any oilier than I'd normally get.

With that combination of oils, it must smell funny, right? Nope. There's a very light scent of roses thanks to the Rosehip oil and that's it. When I applied it, I couldn't smell it. Only if I applied it directly under my nose could I smell it for about 5 seconds and that was it.

But, what about breakouts? None. I was actually going through the "purge" phase of using my Clarisonic, and it was either the end of the purge or Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil Face that helped clear it. Either way, it didn't cause any breakouts!

I don't have any wrinkles, fine lines or darkspots, so I can't report on those, but with all the beneficial properties that Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil Face has to offer, I'll be using this to combat these early signs of aging.

While you should always wear sunscreen, it is especially important to where some when using a product that contains Retinol. 

Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil Face retails for $9.99 for 30ml and is available at Walmart.  A little goes a long way, so this bottle will last for several months.  Visit Palmers.com to see their full line of products (I was surprised at how much they had!)

Palmer's & I would like to give the opportunity to 5 of my Canadian readers to try their Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil Face for themselves and see the benefits that these oils have to offer.
