Perhaps known best as a brand for pregnancy, I started to use Palmer’s while pregnant after noticing my skin drying. Over time, it only seemed to get drier so knew I needed a solution (and I found one quickly!). Despite giving birth, Palmer’s products are still part of my skin rejuvenation routine. With this in mind, I wanted to provide a brief overview on both Palmer’s Moisturizing Night Cream and Palmer’s Multi-Effect Perfecting Facial Oil.
Palmer’s Perfecting Facial Oil
In terms of ingredients, you’ll find five main offerings (before the oils) and I’ve broken down their uses below;
• Vitamin E – Perfect for the prevention of cell oxidation
• Resveratrol – An antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals
• Cocoa Butter – A plant extract that adds protection
• Vitamin C – Aims to brighten tone and complexion
• Retinol – Fights the signs of aging and increases cell turnover
Of course, the main attraction for many is the number of oils found in the products. In addition to sweet almond oil, it offers apricot seed oil, grape seed oil, sunflower seed oil, rosehip oil, coconut oil, and argan oil. What’s more, all essential vitamins can be absorbed thanks to Cetethomate E complex; this should also keep the skin moisturized.
The facial oil can improve uneven tone, reverse the signs of aging, and reduce the appearance of dark spots. What about the product itself? Well, it comes in a small glass container and the first smell you’ll notice is likely to be argan oil. However, you may also pick up hints of coconut and other ingredients.
Personally, I like to use the product both in the morning and in the night. With four drops, my skin feels moisturized without being too greasy. Of course, you can adjust the schedule to how you feel comfortable. For example, last summer, when applied in the morning, it felt as though it was just sitting on my face so I only applied it in the evening.
Palmer’s Night Cream
I also to use Palmer’s Night Cream to complete my night routine. This contains;
• Peptide Complex
• Cocoa Butter
• Shea Butter
• Vitamin E
As the name suggests, this cream is designed for overnight renewal and fighting the signs of aging. It comes in a thick container and doesn’t have a spatula. The cream is actually quite thick and it has the signature fragrance of Palmer’s.
For around two years, I’ve been using the Facial Oil and Night Cream and couldn’t be happier with the results. With the right schedule, my skin feels moisturized throughout the day and even first thing in the morning (something that has been a problem for many years!). Especially when dealing with acne scars and my dark spots, Palmer’s has played such an important role. There’s no doubt I’ll continue buying these products into the future!
