If you have been reading this blog, you know I am a huge Palmers fan. I have the CocoButter stick in my car at all times for lips, cuticles, knees and elbows, and of course, the unscented Palmers Coco Butter Lotion is a staple in my moisturizer arsenal. During the deep cold dry months of winter, the Coco Butter Formula solid in the jar is often the only the only thing that helps.
So I was quite happy to hear that Palmers released their Skin Therapy Oil. My readers also know I am a lover of skin oils, especially when bare legs are on display. This Skin Therapy oil is preservative-free, and fairly lightweight, although it’s not quite what I’d call a “dry oil”. It contains an exclusive blend of key ingredients formulated to help improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks, dry, damaged skin, uneven skin tone, aging skin and fine lines and wrinkles. Sort of along the same lines as the lotion. I definitely notice a difference in skin tone the appearance of stretch marks from diligent use of the Palmers lotions so colour me a lover of palm oil for the skin.
Palmers Skin Therapy Oil has sesame oil in it, which I love. It is light and delicate and feels like it sinks right into the skin. There is a touch of silicone in this product but its just enough to give the product a nice slip when applying. If you have oily or acne prone skin, as I do, I would not recommend using the Skin Therapy Oil on your face. But, it is amazing on the body. I have been using it at bedtime and definitely notice a difference in how my skin looks in the morning. Smooth soft knees, elbows and feet (yes feet!) and it is especially nice after bathing when you’ve spent a long day in the sun. Amazing.

It does have that yummy chocolate-y Palmers scent, which is lovely, but these days I prefer scent free body products. Granted, it does not last long, but it does interfere with my perfume so my solution is to be sure I apply it well in advance of leaving the house, or the night before. If you like using a skin oil, I highly recommend giving this a try! For around $10 for big 150ml bottle at Walmart, this is an easy buy!
