I used to wash my face with soap, spend hours in the sun and party late into the nights and still had perfect skin. Sigh.. All that changes as soon as I hit 30. Fine lines and laughing lines are deepening. Dark under eye circles worsen since the babies came. And worst of all, dark spots/pigmentation!! I never thought I would get those. My skin is such a byatch and a constant reminder that I’m aging and I probably should start looking after myself more.

Recently, I’ve found a glimmer of hope in Skin Therapy Oil With Vitamin E for Face by Palmer’s. I’ve only started using it for about a week now and my skin has certainly shown some improvements.

I’m not sure if my eyes are playing tricks on me or is it my desperate optimism, but I think my skin looks a lot brighter in the photo taken today. You can see here my dark eyes circle and pigmentation have lightened quite a bit. My fine lines are not as obvious even though I was smiling! My skin also feels firmer when I wake up every morning. I can’t wait to see the difference in a month!

This lightweight oil beautifully combined 10 types of powerful pure oils – sesame oils, coconut oils, sweet almond oil, macadamia oil, apricot oil, argan oil, grapeseed oil, rosehip oil, camelina oil and sunflower oil – with Cocoa Butter, Vitamin C & E and Retinol. 

It smells pleasant, and comes in a glass droplet bottle so you can measure the exact amount you need.

How to apply oil on face, I hear you ask?

I apply it right after cleansing. 3 drops into my finger tips, rub fingers together to warm up oil and pat it onto my problem spots including dark spots/pigmentation on my cheeks and nose bridge, under eyes fine lines and age lines). Massage it in a little before smearing it to the rest of the face and neck. The oil absorbs very quickly. Do add a few more drops if you need more.

That’s it. My 2 steps nightly routine. I find that it is mosturising enough that I can skip my night cream altogether.
