What we say:
This is the first time I’ve ever used a cleansing oil on my body before, so I didn’t really know what to expect. However, having been a massive Bio-Oil fan for years, I knew I’d be dealing with something equally amazing. I love how this product makes my skin feel. I usually give it a minute or two on my skin before I allow it to emulsify with water. It cleanses gently and most importantly, hydrates my skin. Instead of feeling stripped of moisture, it feels soft and moisturised. All in all a stunning product!

Cleansing Body Oil

The Lipidol Cleansing Body Oil is basically a shower oil that lathers up and acts like a normal shower gel. The difference and the best part about this product is that because it is an oil, it doesn’t strip the skin of oils or dry it out through the washing or cleansing process.

The product comes in a leak proof bottle and has this heavenly citrus/lime smell which I absolutely love. It costs R87 (+-) and is available in selected Clicks Stores.

When I first used it, I first had to figure out that it works best if you apply it directly to your body instead of like your body gloves or body sponge. I think this product will really come in handy during the winter when the air is so dry and cold and dry skin is a norm. I think the best part about this oil is that when you step out of the shower your skin feels normal, it doesn’t feel dry or stretched or itchy.

Genie in a bottle

This product is interesting for a number of reasons. An oil cleanser sounds absolutely marvellous. It is an interesting green colour with a very natural citrus and herb scent.

The lipidol brand makes the green body cleanser and the smaller blue face cleanser. Do stick to the suggestion to try both if you are interested in this product. Here’s why.

Both products are an oil consistency. They lather when mixed with water into a whitish soap. The body oil is fast acting and is meant to be used in the shower. You can and I have used it in the bath. Th best way to use it in the bath is to apply it onto your dry skin and then slip into the bath for a relaxing splash. Do not underestimate the cleaning power of this oil. It will clean even your no longer white facecloth. Which is why this body oil is not ideal to use on your face. The cleansers are potent.

Use the face oil in the smaller blue bottle instead. The face oil does a great job at cleaning off dirt and even make-up. Do rinse well and follow with a moisturiser.

I found the packaging of this product to be impractical. Particularly the body oil. Ideally it should be in a pump bottle to reduce the slipping through oily wet hands.

Overall I do like Lipidol. It is ideal as an efficient cleanser. I have dry skin and my skin was fine after the wash. Save for when I tried the body oil on my face I ended up with a taut mask.

After I fell in love with the Lipidol Face wash, I decided to try more products in this range.

The packaging looks clinical and simplistic. This product smells to me like limes. The scent is not overpowering and is actually quite refreshing.

Unlike other body wash products that foams, this one emulsifies into a lovely milky texture. It cleanses well while leaving my skin feeling clean and looking radiant.

No oily residue after washing with this, just a very soft skin without any dry patches.

Needless to say, this product is a permanent in my shopping trolley at Clicks and winter or summer, it is a must have!

This winter my skin has been especially dry and this has been an ultimate lifesaver.

I am on a hunt for the perfect in-shower body cleanser. I am tired of soap, liquid soap and anything that leaves my skin dry and tight. Lipidol is lovely! It cleans well and it is not greasy at all – I am inspired by its texture and that your skin feels supple after a towel-dry. My only critique is that there is only ONE scent! It smells like a whole bottle of the green Roundtree Fruit Pastilles.

I am a scrubber! I want to my skin to feel CLEAN. This product makes me feel (psychologically?)… that I will still be dirty after a wash. The concept is fantastic. But not for me.
