This oil wash is truly wonderful especially if your skin is going through a crisis. It may be just about the only kind of body wash you could use on a rash, excema, or very senstive, dry skin. The smell could throw you off. It smells to me just like castor oil but to some who are use to fruity or floral scents, this is not that. Has no fragrance, SLS, or harsh detergents. It comes out in your palm like straight oil and you don't think it will lather but it does! Not a ton but if your going through a bought of very dry skin you don't want that. Think of it as like your cleansing oil but for your body :) This is one of Eucerin's many great products.

I don't have really dry body or leg skin so I only use this when needed, but I decanted some to a small travel-size bottle and found this is excellent for shaving legs while on vacation. When used on my legs or chest I like the glow it leaves. I wish the bottle's opening was smaller, I find it spills out into my hand as I don't use a washcloth for washing my body.

Eucerin products are one of the best over the counter, in my opinion- all of their products do exactly what they promise. This one is no different- as an oil, it makes your skin very soft, smooth and nourished, it's gentle, calming, and great for itchy winter skin or sensitive skin (better than Aveeno I feel). But being formulated for sensitive/sensitized skin it is also fragrance free- I respect that but I am put off by the natural scent of the oils- smells a little like omega 3/fish oil supplements which is just plain weird in the shower. Also because my back is prone to breaking out, I have found that this exacerbated it during summer months, so I have to be careful about that.

My skin is so soft after using this. I don't even need to use lotion. But the smell while using it is horrible. It smells like castor oil... which is an ingredient. But it doesn't stay on your body after your shower so I will live with it.

This is a fantastic bath oil. It turns into a milky lotion upon contact with water, and moisturises slightly. doesn't leave a greasy film after bath.

This is a review for the PH5 shower oil (europe).
I've noticed that in winter time my skin becomes too dry from the normal shower gels, even if they are without SLES and fragrance.
It is difficult to find a good shower oil without fragrance and chemicals.
This oil performs very well, but has fragrance in it and is expensive. I don't understand that there are so many companies that claim to make products for sensitive skintypes and do add fragrance in a lot of their products:
La Roche Posay

- doesn't moisturize
- has unplesant chemical scent
This oil made me itchy and my arms were covered in large red spots after I got out of the shower. My skin isn't very sensetive and I have never had an allergic reaction to a product in my life.

Gentle, actually seems to moisturise skin.
I love the smell and the fact your skin doesn't feel like an oil slick after shower.
The pump is really good as you don't dispense too much product.

This review is for PH5 Shower Oil. Ravess!!
I love how gentle this is to my skin, and it smells heavenly too! I developed some rash due to hot weather, and after using this shower oil a few times, it'd cured :)
Will definitely repurchase this again!

I've been using Aubrey Organics Everyday Body Soap, and it does a fair job, but I find lately I still need to coat myself in body oil and top w/ lotion at night, so I thought I'd give this a try. It doesn't smell good. Kind of like fish oil with a touch of plastic. However, I do really like this, so I can overlook the scent especially since it doesn't linger on my skin. It does cleanse skin, but it's very gentle. This is a slightly thick oil that turns to a milky consistency when it comes into contact w/ water, and despite a few bubbles popping up this is definitely something you have to apply by hand; a bath pouf would just be a mess w/ this.

I have really bad eczema and cuts from it all over my body.
I saw this at the drugstore for about $12 and thought I would give it a shot, as the Dove-free soap I ususally use was burning on the irritated parts of my skin.
I hate this product. For starters, it smells. I am okay with smells as I only use fragrance-free stuff, and a lot of medicine/medicine-like cremes don't smell good, but this is really bad. It also leaves a film on the bottom of the shower, which I guess all oils would, but that makes the smell linger, IMO. Also, this didn't really moisturize for me, though I am a special case. I found that the oil really stinged and didn't provide any great benefits to put up with the stinging.
In fact, I feel like this might have made my eczema a bit worse, but that might just be me. I wanted to use up the whole bottle b/c I paid for it, but at 1/4 left, I had to stop.

I've been using this for 4-5 years now, and even though it was my HG initially, it felt as though my skin got used to it. I loved this because it left my skin smooth and moisturized, and it really does work great with the eucerin body moisturizer. Only problem is it doesn't seem to have that effect on me any longer, I noticed some dry scaly patches on my legs, and promptly switched to Johnson's ph5.5 shower cream. Foams up great for a shower oil. I hope to repurchase this again in future and that it will hopefully work for me after a while again.

I really like this, although it is the first cleansing oil for the shower that I have tried. It leaves my skin feeling quite soft, but I *always* use a moisturizer after showering and I haven't been brave enough to try skipping the moisturizer. I'll update if I try skipping moisturizer. My one complaint is that it doesn't smell very good. Normally, the fragrance of a product is one of the most important factors for me, so I rarely buy unscented products. I wouldn't have minded as much if this didn't have any scent at all, but it's natural scent is slightly unpleasant. However, I think I will try scenting it myself with some perfume and if this works, I'll definitely purchase again.

I use this as a cleansing oil for my face. It is great. No mineral oil. Fragrance free. It is only about $7 for 8.4 oz.

I find great pleasure in experimenting with skincare and beauty products and like to give in to beautiful smell, packaging, big name and good marketing. Even though this shower oil doesn't meet the criteria, it's on my shower shelf to stay.
I was reluctant to buy it at first when my dermatologist prescribed it and even after hearing rave reviews from colleagues (I live in a country where solariums are still very in, as are dermatologists, and just about every single one of them swears by Eucerin shower oil), but then peculiarly, my mom bought me a bottle, and I've been using it ever since. I'd love to diversify, but no other shower gel/ cream or oil has ever left my skin feeling so good and soft after a shower. Sure, I have to use a good moisturizer to keep my otherwise very dry and itchy skin in tolerable condition, but this definitely helps.

I like pretty much all Eucerin products, and I use some on my kids, too. This stuff works wonders, and I don't think it's fair for it to be marked down in reviews for drying one's face. Yes, you can try it on your face, but since it's intended as a body product, that's the only criteria you should be using to review it.

Can't rave enough! This is for the body but I also tried it on my face and loooove it! My T-zone is very oily but I can't use any oil-control cleansers cause they tend to be too harsh for my super-sensitive skin. Most water-based cleansers also make my face red, dry and strip. I thought I would never find any products to match my complicated skin condition but this shower oil has everything I want. It's the best face cleanser I've ever tried. It's oil-based so it can get rid of all make-up, dirt and impurities so I don't have to use any make-up removers before this. It has PH balance so it leaves my skin super-soft and moisturized. My face is clear and less oily and that helps reduce my acne problem. It's so strange since this product is oil-based and people tend to think it will rather increase oil. I used to try a lot of expensive, high-end products but they just can't beat this. It will always be my holy grail!

This product is actually meant for the body, but I was using it for the face, as I liked how well the shower cream was working for my face. For my face, I felt the shower oil was too drying (strangely).

I had eczema/xerosis for a while last year. My skin was peeling, my neck especially hurts and I can't use just any shower gels because they are either too drying or makes me itch even more. I tried a lot of stuff, jergens etc and the lotions sting me really badly.
Then I used eucerin shower oil for dry to very dry skin. Oh my... my skin just soak it all up. The lotion was velvet on my skin. After one bottle of shower oil and lotion, my skin's healed now. I still use the lotion though. Just in case.
In 2006 when I wrote this review, it really did what it did. I had body eczema again in 2011 and thought I will use Eucerin shower oil as it saved me once. Oh boy, it didn't do any good but made my eczema worse. I wonder if the fomula has changed. I am moving it from 5 stars to 0 star. Ok, won't take 0 star, so 1 star then...
