Lipidol Cleansing Body Oil: There but not quite there yet

Regulars of Guardian pharmacy would notice a strange looking rack near the check out counter with lots of pastel color bottles in a clear plastic wrapping and stuck on what seems to be a tray that was inspired from egg tray. That strange looking rack with funky bottles which I first reported on my Instagram is Lipidol, a brand new skincare oils by Union Swiss, who is the makers of Bio-Oil.

The whole of the brand only consists of six types of skincare oil and everything is retailing for RM24.90. What I have with me is not all six products but just the Cleansing Body Oil, something that I thought would easily hit all the right marks.

Lipidol Cleansing Body Oil
You know how I always talk about water and oil level balance in order to keep a healthy and well hydrated skin? Well, apparently the founders of Bio-Oil are on the same page with this when it comes to the overall skin of the body, not just the face but the whole body from head to toe. Beauty oil has always known to be a favourite among those who believe in its efficacy and that includes me. If you recall I do love to “oil myself up” before bed 😀 . Lipidol want to be the first company to come out with a full oil-based skin care products in order to help the skin to retain moisture thus creating a healthy skin. Remember well-moisturized skin = healthy skin = problem-free skin?

Review: A Luxurious Way of Pampering in the Shower with L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil

“What is that you’re using? Smell so nice!”. That is the exact word from my mum everytime I stepped out of shower after using L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil. As I have too many products in the bathroom, my mum doesn’t know which is THE ONE that smell this good.

I only use a few product from L’Occitane namely Foot Cream, Repairing Shampoo + Conditioner, Shea Butter Extra Gentle Soap, Almond Shower Scrub and my favorite – Almond Shower Oil which I will repurchase again and again. It is so good that pampering will never be complete without it.

I purchased Almond Shower Oil for RM95 back in July. It only comes in one size which is 250ml. Sometimes you can spot the refill pack of 500ml or sometimes if you’re lucky 500ml bottle with pump.

What L’Occitane claimed is Almond Shower Oil will transforms into a lavish, softening foam that gently cleanses, leaving a satiny softness all over the body. It is rich in Almond oil and nourishing lipids. This shower oil can also be used for shaving, allowing the razor to glide smoothly over the skin. This international customer favorite, which leaves behind a delectable scent, is suitable for both men and women.

This 250ml of Almond Shower Oil is in a plastic bottle with a push cap. Although I have no problem at all dispensing with this type of bottle but I still prefer if it comes with a pump. More convenient I would say.

I’m quite heavy-handed. I kept on pouring and pouring as this smells so darn good!
