Skin Type: Combination and acne-prone (I have some acne scars too)
Palmer’s makes the best products for mommies but they also make some really good products for other women too. I always try their products when I have uneven skin tone or some acne scars on my face. I have a habit to prick pimples which leave behind scars. Read on further to know whether this scar serum really works for scars, marks and stretch marks or not!
$13.99/INR 900 for 30 ml.
Product Description by Palmer’s:
Contains the ingredients most recommended by doctors. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Vitamin E Scar Serum combines five powerful ingredients to reduce the appearance of scars resulting from surgery, injury, burns, stretch marks, C-section, cuts, scrapes, and insect bites.
My Experience with Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Scar Serum:
The serum comes in a big box with all the big fonts and instruction written over it. The serum bottle is a small glass one. I love how pretty and luxurious the serum bottle looks. It also has a pump dispenser which makes it very easy to use and also it is super handy due to the 30 ml size. The price is expensive but yet fine because it does good for the skin and does what most of the products cannot do. Also, it contains natural ingredients great for skin, like cocoa butter and vitamin E.
The serum is a clear one but the consistency is super heavy and gooey. I do not like the thickness and heaviness on my skin. When I apply it on my face, my hair keeps sticking to the serum, which is a bit irritating. I cannot go out after applying this oil, so I usually apply it during the day time when I am at home. The smell is of cocoa butter but it does smell a bit weird too. I am not a big fan of the smell, but it fades after a while.
This serum showed results slowly but the results were really good. Most products that claim to work on acne scars and stretch marks do not really show results, but this one did! It did manage to fade away my acne scars to a good extent and gave me a clear face, but I had to wait for 3 months to see really good results. If you are very impatient and want it to do magic, then this is not for you.
Also, it did not clear away stretch marks, but it did help them fade away. They look a lot lesser than before. Also, I had scraped my knee once badly and this serum helped clear that scar too, but the results showed up after a long time, so some people would get frustrated and stop using this in a month or so. Overall, a great product to treat your imperfections!

Would I Recommend Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Scar Serum?
This bottle will go a long way, so wouldn’t repurchase a new one anytime soon. I would recommend this serum to those who want to get rid of scars and imperfections, but be patient with it since it won’t do any magic overnight! The cocoa butter formula works really well, so if you do have imperfections on the skin, try this brand!
