The name Lipidol doesn’t give away much of what it is – so when I got my hands on it I didn’t know what it was and threw it in my drawer. Now that I am back from a lovely beach & Kruger Park holiday I decided that maybe with all the time out in the sun I will need to give my skin and hair some extra love and I dived into my drawer and discovered the Lipidol I had was an After Shower Oil.

Lipidol After Shower Oil
I wasn’t joking, I could make out the name but didn’t see the After Shower Oil bit at the bottom of the 175ml bottle. Clear bottle, clear liquid.

Scene – Lipidol enters

I picked out the small Lipidol bottle from my drawer in its very unassuming bottle and decided to Google it (because it knows everything). Big was my surprise to find out that the bottle of Lipidol I had chilling in my drawer is an After Shower Oil.

After taking my very nice little shower I rubbed that oil on me like there was no tomorrow. You could say that I went overboard. You really only need a few drops…

Was I happy I used it?

Sure why not, it smelled nice with the Chamomile essential oil and my skin did feel softer. It wasn’t sticky oily like baby oil. The next day my skin definitely didn’t feel as dry thanks to this amazing heatwave.

Their website says it is safe to use on sensitive skin and non-comedogenic.


What does Lipidol After Shower Oil do?

Lipidol After Shower Oil is like water for your skin. It supplements the skin’s natural oily layer stripped away by washing. Apply after bathing or showering.
