*Product was provided for review.

I've actually been dying to try the Lipidol skincare oils since the first time I saw them in Walmart a few months ago, but I decided to hold off and get through some of my other beauty oils before I picked them up. You guys know how much I love an oil! So, anyway, when I got the chance to try out the Lipidol Cleansing Face Oil* and the Lipidol Overnight Face Oil*, I have to admit I was pretty excited. I love trying out affordable skin care options that are widely available, because I think that's really what a lot of people are looking for! Anyway, I've been trying these out for about a week now and I'm ready to give you my thoughts!

If you've seen the Lipidol displays, you'll have noticed that there are 6 different oils in their collection for a wide selection of uses. The collection includes the Cleansing Face Oil*, the Cleansing Body Oil, the After Shower Oil, the Sunscreen Oil, the After Shave Oil, and the Overnight Face Oil*. I personally love that rather than assert that their beauty oil is for everything, they've formulated different oils for different uses. Very cool! If you're interested in checking out all of the oils, their claims and ingredients, head over to the Lipidol website to check them out!

Lipidol Cleansing Face Oil*
Removes dirt and make-up without stripping the skin's natural oily layer. Apply to dry face. Dirt and make-up will bind with the oil. Add a little water and continue massaging. The oil will emulsify to form a watery cream. Rinse off. Fragranced with Rosemary and Niaouli essential oils. Suitable for sensitive skin, non-comedogenic. 

Personally, I prefer not to emulsify my cleansing oils with water, but for the sake of testing I did try that with this oil as well. I does definitely shift to a milky consistency when you add the water as it claims. I, however, prefer to apply cleansing oil to a dry face and work it in circles over my skin before doing my eyes and lips last. Once I feel like I've really broken up the makeup, I press a warm washcloth to my face to wipe away the product. I usually like to go in with the washcloth at least twice so that I can really make sure my skin is fresh and that the heat from the washcloth has helped to draw any grossness out of my pores.

I really liked this cleansing oil and I think it did a good job of taking off my makeup. I found that I had to work a little bit harder with my waterproof mascara, but that tends to be the case with most of the cleansing oils that I've tried. I feel like this really left my skin feeling clean and ready for my second cleanse, though I actually did find that if I wasn't feeling like a double cleanse this did a good enough job that I didn't necessarily need it. There's really only one thing that I don't like about this product and that's the smell. I can't really place what it smells like, but it's just not my personal favorite. I like when a cleansing oil smells rich and luxurious, but I feel like this one just smells really, really earthy.

Overall, I really like this cleansing oil and will certainly keep using it.

Lipidol Overnight Face Oil*
Supplements the skin's natural oily layer stripped away by daily exposure to the elements. Apply to face before going to sleep. Fragranced with Ylang-Ylang and Black Pepper essential oils. Suitable for sensitive skin, non-comedogenic. 

Can I first just say that I'm a little bit in love with the scent of this? I have strong scent memories attached to Ylang-Ylang from my childhood, but I can often find it overwhelming. Somehow, this manages to bring that scent but a little bit softer and easier to handle. The texture of this oil is also really nice and I don't find that it sits too heavily on the skin as long as you use a light touch applying it. I didn't experience any breakouts when I used this, which is always a huge thing for me when it comes to facial oils.

This isn't my favorite face oil that I've used, but I do think that it's very nice and does a good job of leaving your skin feeling hydrated and fresh in the morning. For me, it was a little bit too much for use every night on my normal-leaning-dry skin, but I found it worked really nicely if I wore it every other night as a part of my usual nighttime skincare routine.

Overall, I think this is a really nice oil and a good foray into facial oils for those who are just dipping their toes in.

I have to say, I'm pretty happy with both of these oils. I think that they are good quality and effective, easily accessible for consumers, and definitely at an affordable price point. I have every intention of getting my hands on a couple of the other oils in the collection to try them out soon!
