Palmer's Cocoa Butter, Now In A Face-Friendly Formula

palmers-embed
We first noticed a skin oil with retinol when checking out products for a recent product round-up — and now, we're sensing a full-on trend. The latest face oil to include the skin-perfecting vitamin A derivative? Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula — yup, that hot-chocolate-smelling stuff that you slather on your bod in the dead of winter has just released its brand-new Skin Therapy Face Oil.
For a drugstore product, this paraben-free oil is serious skin care — it features a blend of 10 (yes, 10!) different kinds of light, nourishing oils, from sweet almond to coconut and argan. In addition, it includes both retinol and vitamin C, which means that you'll end up with clearer, brighter, smoother skin.
The best part? The oil is fragranced with rosehip, which gives it a light, fresh, floral scent (because, as much as we love that original chocolate-y aroma, rubbing it on our face would feel a bit like overkill). For a measly 10 bucks, you can be sure that we'll be coating ourselves with this stuff on the reg — it's basically pretty skin in a bottle.
Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Face Oil, $9.99, Palmer's for retail locations.
