For the past few months, my skin was appearing too dull and dark, plus I had my never-ending exams going on, so couldn’t really pay attention to it. I convinced mom to take me to the Beauty Center just for some fresh air (I love the smell of cosmetics more than fresh air) :P, because I absolutely love that place. We shopped for a lot of hair products! But then I found one miracle product! I had a few stretch marks over my legs and a lot of scars from all the falling and fighting with my sister! 😛 Actually my mom spotted this and I instantly threw it in the shopping cart! 😀
I have heard a lot about Palmer’s products for dry skin beauties and dull skin, so I thought maybe this will help me with my condition. I was more excited to buy it because it had vitamin E and Cocoa Butter both of which have great qualities of improving skin texture. So, read on to find out if this really did make the catch for me.
Around Rs. 700 for 60 ml (I lost the outer box, it had the price).

My Take on Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil:
AMAZING!!! Talking about the packaging it is small plastic bottle which is sturdy and doesn’t deform easily. It has a firm flip cap. It can be carried around as it doesn’t leak. The quality of bottle is good. The bottle is clear which helps indicate the amount of product. The oil is clear and light peach in color.
I use a lot of oils on my skin, like olive, almond and coconut. This one is equivalently as amazing as the other oils. Plus it sticks to its claims of being non-greasy and non-staining. Also, it has this fragrance of rosehip. In winters, I apply this after bath instead of a body lotion and it has never stained my clothes.
Coming to the results, after applying this oil, it made my skin brighter over the days. It never broke me out. It does effectively work on treating uneven skin tone. Over 3-4 weeks of usage, it helps improve scars and stretch marks to a certain extent. It makes skin softer. I apply it before going to sleep, and I never woke up with oily skin. It gets absorbed well and I get a dewy look, which I like! 😀 It doesn’t clog my pores, but one has to use this product religiously; regular usage will definitely benefit you.
I use this to get even-toned feet and it has helped a lot. Also, it has made the abrasions on my skin smoother, like on the elbow and heels. This is my next favorite after TBS cocoa butter for feet, but cocoa butter is way too oily.
The oil spreads well, so you tend to use less. The quantity is very much justified to the price and quality of the product. Also, one should avoid using this if you have very oily skin or to areas sensitive and prone to breakouts.
