La Roche Posay Laboratories created Lipikar range of products about 25 years ago for dry, sensitive and atopy prone skin. This range has proved effective in a number of clinical trials and therefore many dermatologists recommend it. It is suitable for babies, children and adults.

Although it is an oil product, it is not runny at all and it has a gel-like consistency. The cleansing agents in the oil are selected for optimal tolerance. Its formula is enriched with niacinamide which helps to restore the cutaneous barrier of the skin and soothe the tightness and shea butter for intense lipid replenishment. It has neutral pH, it is soap-free, alcohol-free, colorant-free and paraben-free. It is also enriched with thermal spring water and it is 100% hypoallergenic.

You can use it both in the shower or bath. For use in the shower, apply it directly to the moistened skin and gently massage. Alternatively, pour 2-4 cupfuls into the bath water. Gently rinse and pat dry without rubbing.

I received this shower/bath oil as a gift when I purchased some other products online. My skin is normal, but during winter time it becomes dry and I always need to apply a good moisturizer after the shower. With this product, this is not necessary. It leaves my skin soft, nourished and comfortable enough to skip the moisturizer. It does not leave any greasy film. The only downside of this exquisite product is the scent. It smells like edible sunflower oil to me and I can hardly stand it in the shower or bath.

It comes in a 200ml, 400ml and 750ml bottle and it is available in various pharmacies and online. The price may vary and a 200ml bottle costs about 12,00EUR.
