Treatments (Face) -Palmer's -Skin Therapy Oil - Face

This is probably my favorite facial oil. It doesn't have a cloying scent, absorbs quickly, and makes my skin soft, and smooth. I'm not sure if the retinol has done anything to my forehead wrinkles yet, but time will tell. Will repurchase.

Skincare - Body -Palmer's -Skin Therapy Oil

I was using bio oil to relieve itch on my body but this was cheaper. I tried both the rose hip and cocoa version and love both. They absorb into the skin, relieve itch, light and smell so nice especially the cocoa one. Cheap and good packaging. Mineral oil like baby oils don’t work well for me, but for some strange reason this did not cause itch for me. I tried it on the face and it is too rich and causes acne. Strictly on the body for me .

Moisturizers -Palmer's -Night Renewal Cream

foto

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula with Vitamin E has had this Night Renewal Cream in their facial line up of products for quite a few years now. This is no longer called Night Renewal Cream but 'Moisture Rich Night Cream'.

First of all why isn't this in the best of beauty blogs or in ALLURE or INSTYLE magazine! This is without a doubt department store worthy.

First of all the formula is filled to the brim with ingredient's research has shown makes a visible difference in the appearance of skin, how much we will never know for sure (unless your a cosmetic chemist) but judging from the ingredient listing I suspect the ingredients are in effective concentrations.

By law ingredients must be placed in order of concentration from highest to lowest, usually most drugstore brands(and some department store brands for that matter) are incredibly watered down and contain nothing but colouring agents, wafting fragrance, thickeners and preservatives, if there are fancy ingredients they are most likely placed behind the preservative or PH adjuster which is a guarantee that those fancy ingredients they are claiming will do wonders for your skin, are only really below 1% which is not enough to make differences to skin.

Here is the ingredient listing/formula

Water (Aqua), Cetearyl Alcohol, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Extract, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glyceryl Stearate, Peg-100 Stearate, Cyclohexasiloxane, Glycereth-26, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Diethylhexyl Sebacate, Glycerin, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Tocopherol, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Retinol, Aloe Barbadenis Leaf Juice Powder, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide-7, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Flower Extract, Hydrolyzed Milk Protein, Tetrasodium EDTA, Ceteareth-20, Sodium Polyacrylate, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, N-Hydroxysuccinimide, Fragrance (Parfum), Steareth-20, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, BHT, Propylene Glycol, Benzyl Benzoate, Coumarin.

Cocoa Extract and Butter, Glycerin, Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Sunflower Seed Oil, Retinol!, Aloe Vera, Coconut Oil, 2 Peptides!, Evening Primrose Extract and Hydrolyzed Milk Protein. All wonderful research proven ingredients and definitely in efficacious amounts. It contains something called N-Hydroxysuccinimide an ingredient I often find in eye creams and products designed for the elimination of dark circles, although research on this particular ingredient for those concerns is lacking and so far at the bottom of the listing it's most likely a dusting.

The cream's texture is quite thick and rich but applies surprisingly smooth and almost matte on the skin whilst leaving skin feeling beautifully moisturised without feeling the least bit slick,greasy or heavy.

Fragrance is something this product definitely needs work on! The previous formula 'Night Renewal Cream' as with most of the Palmer's Facial line of products a few years back had a pleasant universal scent with Fresh White Lily. That too was slightly overpowering but I definitely prefer that to the artificial chocolate-y heavy scent it is now. It's quite cloying.

I have used this new version and the previous formula on and off for a few years now and it is one of the best hands down moisturisers at the pharmacy/drugstore/chemist. Such a great value and a generous size of 75 grams which will usually last me exactly one month.

It is extremely rare to find a drugstore cream with Retinol in such a high amount and kudos to Palmer's for producing a great, quality, effective product that actually does what it claims. Palmer's is one of the few family owned companies left in America and they are great brand with a large variety of options for all skin concerns, their Skin Success line is also extremely affordable and effective and I will be writing reviews on that line soon.

This cream should win an award! Please do try it!

Cleansers -Palmer's -Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil

Perfectly breaks down a full beat with 1 pump! Smells like roses too. I remove with those disposable pads, I do not rinse off. You get 6.7 Oz versus the 4 Oz that Neutrogena has, plus this has a pretty rose scent and no mineral oil. Neutrogena is mostly mineral oil.


Conditioner -Palmer's -Coconut Oil conditioner

on 4/7/2018 5:52:00 AM

I imagine there are two versions of the 'Palmer's coconut oil conditioner', because the one I bought is DEFINITELY not a conditioner. It is a hair wax, something that is only obvious from the very, very small user instructions on the side (which were illegible in the store, hence me buying the wrong thing). On the front it only says 'conditioner' and 'hair balm', two things that do not scream 'wax' to me. Does it to you? Nowhere on the front does it mention that it's a leave in product and not for wet hair. I think the store also unaware of what it was because they put it in the 'hair mask and conditioner' section.

I mistakenly used this product as what I thought it was (and what is says it is on the tin): a coconut conditioner. Two days later, after copious washing, I am still stuck with the goopy wax residue in my hair (which has done nothing to make hair less dry, as you can imagine). Fortunately I only applied it to the ends of my hair and stopped quickly - it is not easy to apply. Glad it's nowhere near my scalp, I'd cry if it was.

Even as a wax I would struggle with this. The hard substance (which looks like normal hard coconut oil, the sneaky thing) does not seem to melt. It stays lumpy and thick. For short hair it might work as a sculpting wax, for long hair it is all but useless.

I can't comment too much on it as a wax, all I can say is that it fails completely as a conditioner. They really should change the packaging. As a conditioner it is hands down the worst product I've ever used. Even as a wax I'm not sure it can live up to the claim of 'moisturizing dry hair'. It made my hair sticky, goopy and still frizzy despite all that.

It does smell really good, though. I want to eat it. The coconut smell is fantastic. So there's that...
