Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil

Last year, I discovered the wonderful world of cleansing oil when I tried Bobbi Brown’s Soothing Cleansing Oil and became a fanatic. Oh my goodness. You have never truly cleansed until you’ve tried a good cleansing oil with a foaming cleanser together. Double cleansing is life! After going through both of my mini bottles of Soothing Cleansing Oil I was determined to buy the full sized until more and more new makeup releases and collections started hitting my wallet back to back. I quickly went from, “OMG I gotta have my Soothing Cleansing Oil asap!!” to, “Do I really want to spend $44 on a cleansing oil right now?” Oh how our priorities change when new makeup rolls around!

Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil

As you probably guessed, I was not ready to drop almost $50 on Bobbi’s cleansing oil. I still think it’s the bomb but I was curious to see what other cleansing oils were out there that wouldn’t cost me an arm and a leg as I’m buying up makeup left and right. While shopping for toothbrush covers, I came across the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil for just 8 bucks and decided it was worth a try. Not only is it formulated with cocoa butter (which my skin loves) but it also has rosehip oil, sesame oil, and Vitamin E to moisturize, soothe and provide antioxidants to help improve the texture and appearance of skin.

I’ve been using the Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil for over a month now and I’m quite pleased with the results. It has a rich consistency and a light refreshing cocoa butter scent with hints of rose that smells so good. The formula is also very hydrating and breaks down even the toughest of waterproof eye makeup without irritating my sensitive skin or stripping my dry skin of much needed natural oils. A little goes a very long way as you only need one pump to completely remove a full face of makeup. I simply massage it into my face with dry hands and then add water to transform the Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil into a rich, milky cleanser with a light foam that thoroughly cleans leaving my skin feeling soft and makeup free.

The Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil is certainly good enough to use on its own but I wear a lot of makeup on a regular basis so I still prefer to follow up with a foaming cleanser afterwards to make sure I’m removing every little trace of makeup, dirt and oil. I find that the Skin Therapy Cleansing Oil pairs well with a few of my lightweight cleansers without causing any breakouts or drying out my skin. To be honest, I like it just as much as my beloved Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil. The formula works just as well and it smells a little better too. Can’t beat that for under $10!

    I’ve been using the palmers one for a while now . I really want to try the Bobbi brown one now that you mentioned it!

    • The Bobbi Brown one is nice! It’s a little more rich than the Palmers but they work about the same to me though

  • Fancie, hon – where did you find this? Would this be too much for my combo skin? I’ve never tried an cleansing oil, but this one sounds wonderful !!!

    • Hey Gina! Long time no talk! How have you been?? I miss you! I found it at Walgreens but I think Walmart carries it too. Honestly, I think cleansing oils will work just fine with your skin. Oily skin typically reacts to oil well so I think you’ll like it. It’s not too rich or anything.

      • Hi sweetheart!!! I’m just NOW finding this!!! So sorry, I miss you too!!! I commented on a couple of your blogs, but I guess you were busy and didn’t see it? No matter how are you? Good I hope love! I’ve moved into a new apartment which has been good (much lower rent) but man has there been problems out the yazoo. I’m supposed to be at a hotel right now, but I didn’t want to leave Gracie alone…. she doesn’t do well. The place had semi-flooded (just under the washer and into the kitchen) a couple of times, I’ve had problems with my air conditioner – and killed WAY too many spiders!!! The apartments are brand new – so there’s glitches. Oh well, the rent is so low, I can’t hardly complain….. like over 200 less than what I was paying and I have a 2 bedroom, 2 bath. It will get worked out.

        Are you still working with BB? Anything new and exciting? Not much here – same old same old… I had a couple of credit card binges and now I’m really having to scrape to get back in shape… man I got spending problems girl. It will work itself out but it’s going to be tough for a while girl. Can’t blame anyone but myself!!! I can’t work right now, my health hasn’t been good for the last 5 months. It’s my kidneys. It’s much better now and I’m bored senseless!!! Thought about starting a youtube channel but I can’t afford to buy new make up girl. Anyway — I’d Love to hear from you!!! Sorry I missed this, and thanks for telling me where to find the cleansing oil!!! Love ya!!! Gina.
