Lipidol Facial Cleansing Oil & Overnight Oil

Lipdol Cleansing Oil and Overnight Oil

While I know lots of people who use cleansing oils, even with oily skin, I put of trying them because of that oily skin fear.  When an opportunity to try Lipidol Cleansing Oil and Overnight Oil came up through Chick Advisor’s product review club, I jumped at the chance.  If I was going to try them, may as well be for free in case I never use them again.

Lipidol is from the makers of Bio-Oil and that stuff is like liquid gold to me, so despite the affordable price tag for $8.97 at Walmart for all Lipidol products (they have the cleansing oil and overnight oils I will review here plus a shower oil, cleansing body oil and aftershave oil), I had fairly high expectations for how Lipidol would perform.

Lipidol Cleansing Oil comes in a fairly blue no frills bottle.  Apply the cleansing oil to your dry face and it binds with dirt and makeup, then add water to make a milky emulsified cream and rinse off leaving your skin clean.  I find that oil does not rinse well alone so I often use my regular cleanser after but as a makeup remover, nothing beats Lipidol Cleansing Oil for removing waterproof eye products.

While it does not sting, you may get a film of oil over your eye leaving a milky view of the world, so rinse really well.  I usually go over my eyes with a cotton pad with warm water after rinsing as I try not to put my regular cleanser near my eyes.  The Body Shop’s Seaweed cleanser helps that oily t-zone but is not very eye friendly.

Sadly, my oily skin fears for the overnight oil did come true and Lipidol Overnight Oil left my t-zone very oily, but it did wonders for my cheeks and lip which are always really dry.  While it left my forehead oilier than usual, I did not experience any breakouts and within a few days of cleansing, the extra shine was gone, so if you are one of these people who get oily from a lack of moisturizing, it is worth trying.

Like many of my night skincare products, I do not use this every night as is gives a more intense blast of moisture.  A couple of times a week in plenty for me, but if you have drier skin, you may be fine with it every night.

These Lipidol products were received free of charge in return for a review on ChickAdvisor.  All comments/views are my own and you can read other reviews from the ChickAdvisor product review club here.
