Skincare is a multi-billion dollar industry that can seem intimidating to navigate. Between cleansers, toners, serums and scrubs, finding a product that's affordable and tackles all of your skincare needs can be a bit overwhelming.

Luckily, there are some brands that have developed a reputation for focusing on healing skin without an expensive price tag.

One of those brands is Palmer's, a company that can trace its origins back more than 160 years and has become the most popular cocoa butter brand in the world. Although many people tend to think of cocoa butter when it comes to alleviating dry skin or helping to reduce the appearance of stretch marks on our bodies, Palmer's also offers a line of anti-aging skincare products, including the Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil for Face.

"This oil is great! I have extreme dry red spots on my face, almost like eczema. I’ve tried everything [including] expensive creams and lotions. After half an hour the dry spots would be back," one Amazon shopper wrote. "I put this on last night and I woke up and my skin still felt good and no dry spots. It’s an oil but it doesn’t feel greasy or oily after you massage it in. Also, my skin is sensitive and I had no problem with it either. It has a slight smell of rose water that goes away after a bit. I like it but if you aren’t fond of that smell, just expect it when you are applying it."

"I absolutely love this oil, my skin feels so much healthier. I’ve tried a few others and they’ve either left a burning sensation, acne or did nothing at all," another echoed. "I have sensitive skin that gets dry throughout the year, especially during the cooler months and can feel the difference after only a day or two of using this oil. My face feels so much softer and smoother, will definitely buy again."

Verdict

At $11, Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil for Face is an affordable investment in smoother, softer, younger looking skin. Considering the thousands of positive reviews from shoppers, the face oil is a welcomed addition to any skincare routine - especially if you're suffering from dry skin this winter.
