Palmers Facial Oil | Review

Serum is sort of a new step to my skincare routine and they aren't something I have really explored before. I have always used the same one, so when my previous serum ran out I saw it as a chance to test out a new one.

I eventually decided on the Palmers Face Oil, mainly because currently serums aren't something I want to spend a lot of money on and this was £10 from Tesco, secondly, I love the Palmers as a brand so I was quietly confident it wouldn't fail me now. I love how this palmers oil is full of 10 natural oils along with vitamin C, cocoa butter and retinol. The cocoa butter and oils help to moisturize and smooth scars and even out uneven skin tones and the vitamin C and retinol brightens and tones your skin.

When I applied the serum the first thing that hit my was its scent, like all products it smells almost exactly like cocoa and I am not complaining. I love palmers products and have had great experiences in the past so you could say I had high hopes for this. I massaged around 4 drops of the oil into my skin after I had cleansed, toned and applied my eye cream.  It is quite a heavy oil compared to my previous one, but immediately after I the oil had sunk into my skin it felt hydrated and nourished. In the morning when I woke up my skin still felt nice and moisturized and after looking in the mirror at my morning face, when my skin would usually look dead and tired, I am pleased to say I was surprised. My skin looked healthy and glowing after just the one use of the oil, my face felt plump and rejuvenated. After a week of me using this serum I have noticed my scars from spots have begun to fade and also my skin tone appears more even with less redness. Maybe I have found my new holy grail skin care item.

If you are on the look out for a new serum and suffer from dehydrated, uneven skin, I recommend this product to you and wish you good luck in testing it out.
