oilatum fragrance free shower gel: review

In today's post I shall be reviewing the Oilatum Fragrance Free Shower Gel.

The Claims
A non foaming cleanser that gently soothes and conditions dry and itchy skin helping to leave skin soft and supple.

The Reality
I've struggled with eczema since I was a baby and regularly get flare ups due to stress, certain beauty products and changes in weather. The Oilatum shower gel was recommended to me by mydoctor to use instead of other products which may exacerbate the problem. The thick fragrance-free formula works well on my skin and although it doesn't foam like regular shower gels, I feel clean and moisturised at the same time after using it. However, skin can feel slightly greasy after use.

The Packaging
The shower gel comes in a squeezy tube with a screw cap. It is easy to use in the shower although the packaging could be improved with a flipcap so you don't loose the lid. 

The Price 
Boots: £9.49/150ml

The Ultimate Question: Would I Repurchase?

The Overall Score: 4/5

How you tried Oilatum products? What are your thoughts?

  3. Thanks for the review dears! I haven't tried this yet.
    Since it has Paraffin and since it makes your skin feel a bit greasy, guess my oily skin would become an oil factory if I use this!!
