AMW Reviews: Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil

I am one super lazy girl when it comes to lotion or body oil application!  There are weeks I would go with straight application and another week leaving my skin bare and dry!

But once I got pregnant and passed my crazy morning sickness stage, I religiously apply these moisturizing products as I find my skin getting even drier than usual!  Let's say I have the best crocodile skin available in the market?  (Limited Croc Skin buyers anyone?) *hahaha*

Thanks to my dearest Shobe Sophie for gifting me this!  I am so touched she thought of me during her vacation in New Zealand/Australia!

AMW says ---
  • Palmer's as a brand is against animal testing.
  • Smells great!
  • Moisturized my skin for the whole day!  I only apply this once a day every after shower.
  • The dry patches disappears after 2 weeks of usage.
  • I also use this on my tummy area and Mr. AMW describes my "bump" to be smooth and soft.
  • Gets absorbed into the skin in a minute and skin is grease-less and oil-free.
  • Skin looks shiny and healthy.
  • No allergic reactions or itchiness.
  • A bit messy, I had to put this inside a plastic resealable bag after every use as the bottle is oily all over.
A lightweight skin therapy oil that gets absorbs into the skin in no time!  It gives an appearance of soft and smooth skin in an instant and effects of dry skin like dry patches and itchiness is greatly reduced after 2 weeks usage!

  • Best used after shower or bath.
  • Since the product is a bit oily at first 30 seconds, continuously rub the product on areas needed until the product gets absorbed into the skin and wipe your hands with clean towel.
  • If you are scared to use oil all over your body, uset he Palmer's Skin  Therapy Oil only on areas that tend to dry up.  (Elbows, knees, heels, etc...)
  • Use daily.
Will I repurchase?

To whom do I recommend this to?
Pregnant and non-preggy friends who likes the moisture of body oil minus the grease!  Works on all skin types!

Where to purchase and how much?
Since this was gifted to me, I'm not sure how much this cost locally so any help from readers who have purchased this will be greatly appreciated :D

Would you give this product a try?  Pregnant or not?
I will definitely continue to use such product even after I give birth! I am loving the scent the way my skin feels after every use!

  1. This sounds like a dream! :) I love body oils as they are so nourishing :D

    1. I agree, one of my favorite Body Oil is from Neutrogena! So far, these 2 are my faves! What's yours?

  2. I hope this is available locally. I know Palmers is available in SM and even Rustans but I'm not sure if I've seen this one. I love body oils so so much eh

    1. I believe they are available on those 2 places you mentioned too but I haven't seen this, I recently purchased another Oil version of this from Palmer's but not sure if it's the same as this, will check :D

    1. I think this works for face and boy, I don't think it will work for lips, let's stick to lip products for lips as we tend to lick our lips! :D

  4. FAntastic product!
    This is the one I am telling you about -- this is the best overall body oil I've tried! And one super dry days, I also use this on my face. :)
    It's on my current favorite things blog post too! :))

    1. Yes, I agree with you, this works so well! I haven't tried this on my face as I'm saving this up for my tummy area :D

  5. This is exclusively available at Rustan's department store around P600++ per pump bottle. This one you got is smaller.

    1. Ahhh I got the one in pump bottle! so same pala! I haven't use the pump bottle pa kasi and saving for my "itchy" tummy times!

  6. got mine from watsons at 695 php (the pumped one)

  7. I love this oil. I'm 63 and it helps my skin a lot, even face. It's nourishing, lightweight and quick absorbing. One of my elbows was dark and dry. I used medications with no effect. After using this oil, my elbow is softer and the darkness is vanishing.

  8. Got my from Watsons for 495(60ml).

  9. Got my from Watsons for 495(60ml).
