I'm sure all of you are familiar with the story Snow White and the seven dwarf. We all know that the evil stepmother is obsessed with looking pretty and uses magic to make herself look forever-young and chio. But its a fairy tale and in reality, we all grow old.
Today, I'm gonna introduce to you a new product Sample Store hooked me up with recently - Plamer's Skin Therapy Oil for face!
It's basically a multi-purpose dry oil for face & neck, and helps to reduce face issues such as fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, dry and ageing skin as well as uneven skin tone!
I know it might be kinda "early" in a sense for me to try such anti-ageing products but hey, its good to take preventive measures early yeah! Plus i have started spotting dark spots on my skin in recent years (have no idea how it got on there) and my mum had been telling me how annoyed you would be with these 'ageing problems' when i reach her age.
// I'm trying a new type of flatlay/photography for products so i took these oil out for some pictures!//

I've always thought that skincare products that came in the form of glass and squeezed out like these are super classic and makes it look very expensive-looking!
BEFORE (left) AND AFTER (right) PICTURE
I gave a go at the product for 5 days and applied it daily every night before i sleep. I was a little apprehensive at first because its a dace product which infuses oil and i have pretty complicated skin which is sensitive to certain moisturizers which made me have a really bad breakout years ago.
I don't really have ageing issues (as of now) but i do have a patch of dark spot on my right cheek which i'm eager to have it off. The oil got to me a little because applying oil on my face? - just didnt seem too right and risk-free (pimples?!) for me. I'm also pretty afraid that it would make my 'oil bubble' reappear because i just had them removed during my time with ClearSK, but it didn't.
To my pleasant surprise, Palmer's oil is definitely oily to touch (and gets a little messy because the oil will overspill and gets the exterior bottle oily), but upon application, its actually lightweight and easy to apply on.
Back to the uneven spot. I guess 5 days weren't enough to see miraculous effect (as seen from the BEFORE & AFTER picture) but i would like to state that i took the BEFORE picture during the day and the AFTER picture at night, both facing the window. The sunlight did played a part in toning my uneven spot down if you are wondering why the spot looked even darker LOL. I think its only fair to the product that i state all these.
But overall, i do feel that my skin feels 'tangier' to touch and my skin cleared up a little. Of course, this is used in conjuction with my daily skincare products and routine as well. No edits at all, raw from my iphone 6 camera.
& i really love how it is animal-cruelty free because testing your products on animals can be so unethical and cruel at times (all those videos mygod).
Overall, i would rate this item a 3/5 and minus 1 point because i can't test the validity of the other face issues that well so i don't wanna give un-tested comments! & minus another 1 point because i can't see the long term effect as of now yet! (5 days only leh)
