My Review
This was a travel size sample redeemed from Neutrogena Facebook Page. 

The sample travel size came with its opening sealed. Very hygienic act. Also shows that the sample has not been opened and used. 
Opening sealed.
Many times, the travel size sample of others I tried will not have this sealed opening. Its usually opened, sometimes making it looks like its been used before. But this one 100% sure its new.

The cleanser has a gel like texture and also nice light scent. 
Gel like texture.
Foam can easily form with little water and lathering.
easy to form foam.
This cleanser is able to really deep cleanse my skin especially if my skin feels very very oily and sticky. In this case, it does help a little to prevent blemish.

But I do feel that although it really deeply cleanse my skin, it feels too drying personally for me. After cleansing, I do always feel that its not as hydrating and smooth. I feel as if the essential oil has also been wipe off too.  

Its overall a not too bad cleanser. 

Where to buy it?

My Review
I was sponsored by SampleStore.com with this product to review.

Having seen that its for anti-aging and can reduce lines and wrinkles, the first thing that come to my mind is that I should get my my to become my guinea pig. 

So the review will be mostly on my mum's after used effect. Lets start!
Product package.
Lets start with the package itself. The therapy oil is place in a brown bottle.
Place in a brown bottle.
The therapy oil can be easily extracted using the dispenser given. But the dispenser is quite "sensitive". After squeezing oil into the dispenser, a little touch on the dispenser or sometimes just holding it, the oil will drip easily out of it. So have to be really careful. 
The cover is a dispenser as well.
Oil drip easily from the dispenser.
The oil itself have a nice rosehip fragrance smell. 

The oil when use does not leave any sticky feeling. Then how about oiliness? 
Palmer’s Skin Therapy Oil.
Well, I have combination skin, so I am afraid of oil on skin too. But this oil does not leave an oily feel on my skin. It not too oily on my face. But an advice on the amount to use on oily or combination skin. For me, I use only 2 tiny drops for entire face (avoiding T zone for me) and neck.

For my mum, she uses 3 or 4 tiny drops to her entire face and neck. She has a dry skin. It does not feel too oily on her too. Fit perfectly on her skin.

So what is the effect after use? 

For me, it does help to brighten up my skin tone and also moisturized my skin. But I do really have to be careful on the amount and area to use coz of my combination skin. 

For my mum, it really does wonders to her skin. It not only helps to brighten up her skin tone and moisturize her skin, it also helps to lighten up her wrinkles and fine lines.
