This is a thick rich feeling cleansing oil that will not strip skin. It does feel like there is some residue after you rinse.This is my new favorite western cleansing oil - and it delivers in the way I expect a cleansing oil to work. It's got an almost full to real oil viscosity so it's easy to apply and massage onto your face to really get ride of makeup. However the downside to this more oil rich formulation is that the emulsification for removal isn't the cleanest I've used so I sometimes feel like I have a bit of residue. I usually only use this in a double cleanse routine. It's not always foolproof at removing Asian waterproof mascara, but great for most non waterproof formulations. I removed a lippie for the smell - which is very strong and if you don't like a floral scent, can be a bit overwhelming. At the price point I definitely recommend it (probably more so if you like florals and have very dry skin).For reference: I have normal-dry combination skin with rosacea.

Been using this as a body oil for 3 months now and I’m amazed by the results. I stopped using lotions/creams years ago because they always left a residue and never felt comfortable on my skin no matter how light it was advertised as. I usually use almond oil on my body but I thought I’d give this a try since I have some scarring on my arms (had a nasty breakout after waxing) and I also have stretch marks on my tummy from having two kids. Since using this, my skin feels amazingly smooth and soft. I apply it when my skin is slightly damp after a shower and it absorbs right away, no greasy or sticky residue AT ALL but my skin is so moisturized. There’s been a subtle glow to my skin ever since using this and will be using this unless I come across any issues. The only thing I don’t like is the funky odor of the cocoa butter. It dissipates after 30 min or so but I understand it’s made out of cocoa butter. Something I can deal with

my hands get so dry and they start to burn during the winter. I love hand salves but hate the residue, I use them at night. I wanted a simple thick lotion during the day. Although it is cheap my hands have been soft for days now.

This one is a definite miss for me.It's a solid balm that liquifies instantly on contact with skin, and is supposed to be water rinsible. It does look as if it is water rinsible as it starts to wash off when you mix it with water. Unfortunately, even after trying to wipe it off with a face cloth, it left a greasy residue. I had to double cleanse very thoroughly. I have other cream cleansers that don't leave a residue so this is a definite no no. I haven't binned it yet. I might use it in winter when I don't want to strip my skin, and when I want a slight residue left to protect against harsh weather, but apart from that, this just doesn't work for me.

Palmer's Skin Success Fade Cream, in fact the entire Skin Success line is just that Skin Success. Very few product in the drugstore and very few brands are able to deliver sound, good quality and effective skin care at an affordable price. Palmer's does just that. This is a review for the formulation of Skin Success Fade Cream for Oily Skin. There are three versions of the cream, one for all skin types, one for dry skins and one for Oily. This oily skin version leaves a beautiful matte finish, the texture may appear and feel somewhat thick but it definitely settles to a matte finish, light enough to wear under make-up. Also contains some sunscreen to protect from day time sun damage. It contains the usual ingredients Palmer's has rostered for their Skin Success line, that being Hydroquinone at the effective concentration of 2%, it also contains a generous amount of Retinol, Vitamin E, Vitamin C and Alpha Hydroxy Fruit Acids. All in a base of skin protecting mineral oil and lanolin, It contains a light fragrance but nothing too heavy. I've yet to come across such an a jam packed cream at such an affordable price, please be on the look at as there are versions with a 25% bonus. I recommend using this in conjunction with the Palmer's Skin Success Complexion Soap and Complexion Toner for all skin types. Also available in the line is a Serum, Fade Milk for the Body, and Fade Gel. All highly recommended. Thank you Palmer's for making something that actually does the job! I saw results for my post breakout marks and hyperpigmentation in as little as three weeks! No kidding!
