Splurge of the Week: Kiehl's Body Cleansing Oil

Splurge of the Week: Kiehl's Body Cleansing Oil

My skin has been going through an oddball itchy phase. Ever the hypochondriac, I became convinced that the cats had fleas. They didn't, so I thought, "Oh no, I've somehow picked up bedbugs!" (I hadn't.) After running through a mile-long list of potential itch-causers, I decided to switch body wash to one that doesn't foam up and potentially irritate my skin.

You could probably use a variety of washes, but I went with Superbly Restorative Body Cleansing Oil ($27.50). It has organic argan oil (the buzzed-about Moroccan oil) as well as a beta hydroxy acid. Since it's an oil, it doesn't lather up like crazy. Instead, it gently washes away dirt without leaving my skin dry. Plus, the softly earthy scent is sexy instead of traversing into a "I just followed Phish around for three months" funk. Most important: no more itchy skin. Win! At $27.50, it's more expensive than most body washes, but a little goes a really long way — and the ability to go to sleep without scratching my legs these days is pretty much priceless.

I've been using argan oil on my hair for a few months now and I just love it. I will have to try this body wash.Bath and Body Works used to have a line of saké Oil-to-Cream Cleansers, but I haven't seen them in a while. This looks like a good replacement - maybe a better one.

ooh sounds good. i've heard alot about the kiehl's argan products. i'd also suggest (if looking for an oil cleanser) l'occitane almond oil..,it smells amazing and you can skip lotion.for itchy skin, i bought lush dream wash (body wash version of their dream cream lotion) which contains calamine, when i had broken out whelps, and it made them go away by the end of the day.

Blondie, nope. The idea with cleansing oils is that "like washes away like" — so the cleansing oil will wipe away oil. I would recommend a facial cleanser for your face, but for your body, this should be easy and acne-free fun.

Try the other Kiehl's argan products! I love the body oil and the lotion. Especially the body oil.

I am obsessed with DHC Cleansing Oil for my face. I never thought to use oil cleanser for the rest of my body - what a great idea! I'd love to give this a spin.

I use this and LOVE it! My 5 year old also was having some weird dry skin patches, and I started using this on him, and his skin is now soft and smooth! Bye-bye itchy dry skin! :)

That sounds great, I've been using Eucerin: Calming Body Wash Daily Shower Oil - 8.4 fl oz. It's about 8.00 but it's worth it. It really calmed down my itchy skin that was caused by stressed.
