Lotions/ Creams -Palmer's -Olive Oil Body Lotion

on 11/10/2018 3:51:00 AM

Decided to give Palmer's Olive oil body lotion a try, as I was looking out for a 'cleaner' lotion that smells fresh.
It is my first time using Palmer's olive oil body lotion, and I think it is a reformulation of the discontinued Olive Butter Formula. This one comes in a white bottle with a light green sticker in the front and back.

** Palmer's Olive oil body lotion is marketed as containing
- No parabens
- No phthalates
- No mineral oil
- No gluten
- No sulfates
- No dyes

** Palmer's Olive oil lotion vs. Palmer's Cocoa butter firming lotion
I've tried the cocoa butter firming lotion years ago and didn't like the sweet smell of that lotion.
This one, the olive oil body lotion smells citrusy, and fades eventually to the typical olive scent.
It is not heavily scented (as compared to the cocoa butter lotion) and easy to wear out.
If I remember correctly, the firming lotion has similar claims as omitting the nasties (such as parabens, sulfates, etc.)

** Palmer's Olive oil lotion vs. Watsons Naturals Olive body lotion
Sometime ago, I fell in love with the housebrand natural range Olive body lotion from a drugstore - Watsons. That one uses organic olive oil and olive fruit extracts from Italy. It claims to be free from parabens, mineral oil, silocones, colourants, isothiazolinone (MIT, CMIT, BIT).
I like the scent of Watsons Naturals a lot more. It is 'fresher' compared to Palmers'.

For me, the Watsons' housebrand Natural range olive oil lotion is perfect for the higher humidity months, but I think Palmer's olive oil lotion will do better in the other months in the year. Palmer's is marketed as providing 24-hour moisture, but not the other brand. Palmer's also claims to be formulated with an anti aging peptide complex. Both lotions absorb quickly and do not leave any sticky feeling.

** My final thoughts.
I love both Palmer's Olive oil lotion and Watsons Naturals Olive lotion equally.
They are great in their own ways. I'll repurchase both.
Palmer's being a tad heavier in texture will be used at night, while Watsons Naturals will be used in the day. The scents are also well-matched to their time of use - with the 'fresher' Watsons Naturals used in the day.

Skincare - Body -Palmer's -Cocoa Butter Formula jar

on 11/8/2018 12:52:00 PM


This stuff makes a great face moisturizer! I was quite hesitant to put it on my face, as I am very, very acne-prone, and I had read in multiple places that cocoa butter is comedogenic. However, I was not having luck with any other moisturizer I tried, and I really needed something to get rid of the dry, flaky patches!

Some people find the smell to be overwhelmingly sweet; I find it to be so delightful, I can’t stand it. The texture is hard and balm-like and requires a bit of smushing to get it on your finger. You don’t need a lot though, as too much can turn your face greasy. The easiest application method for me is rubbing it between my fingers so it smooths out, and then patting it on my face.

The best thing about this cocoa butter besides the smell (and the $3 price tag) is NO BREAKOUTS! Honestly, I thought I was going to have to give up on moisturizer, as every one I tried resulted in pimples, whiteheads, and irritated skin. But my skin has been looking so much better since I started using this. Hopefully, it will stay that way!

Lip Treatments -Palmer's -Cocoa Butter Formula Moisturizing Lip Balm w/Vitamin E & Spf 15

on 11/2/2018 4:04:00 AM


This is the first time a lip balm actually caused my lips to sting and burn.

Totally love their body lotions and so decided to give the lip balm a try.
There is something in the lip balm that is causing the adverse reaction.

Tried over days to make this work, but it still burns my lips.

Skincare - Body -Palmer's -Skin Therapy Oil

on 10/28/2018 1:32:00 AM


I've been using this 1-2 x a day for about 4 months now, umm holy WOW, this oil is amaze balls. I use this directly on my skin (at night)after toning, let it absorb for about 20 minutes, then proceed with the next step in my routine, wow, this has made my 49(just turned yesterday🤪) year old skin look ahhhmazing. I will sometimes add a few drops to my moisturizer in the morning and let it absorb well before applying primer. The bottle states that 93% of users have seen a difference in scars, stretch marks, dry damaged skin, uneven skin tone, and aging skin. I don't have any scars or uneven skin tone except darkness under my eyes, but it has dramatically smoothed the lines around my mouth that are small but they bug me, and just given my skin and overall clarity and freshness, as if I had an expensive peel or laser, and people have complimented me.. I can't say enough about this product, I definitely recommend.

Moisturizers -Palmer's -Multi-Effect Perfecting Facial Oil

on 10/26/2018 12:01:00 AM


This is the first facial oil I ever used. I bought it because it was on sale in the health and beauty aisle in my local supermarket (I'm such a cheapskate this is normally how I find and try new skincare products or cosmetics!).

I have had acne in the past, and my skin can be very dry in winter. However, I get minor hormonal breakouts, and breakouts according to my diet, so my skin is quite sensitive and reactive.

This oil was great. It's not too thick, no strong smell. My face felt very soft and moisturised and I never had so much as a hint of a breakout from it. I used a few drops on my face and neck right before bed.

If I found it on sale again I would probably repurchase.
