Comparison of Isana and Nivea body oils

A few days ago I diminished Isana body wash oil. I used Nivea oil before. Are these products noteworthy? Is it worth buying them, and if so, which one? You will find out in today's note.
body wash oils
My allergic skin needs daily hydration. Sometimes I do not want to apply a lotion or olive oil in the morning, which is why I was looking for something that would cause me not to have to do it every day.
I honestly admit that I initially wanted to buy Isana oil because, as you probably know, I am discouraged to Nivea. And this time it turned out that Nivea is not adapted to my allergic skin.
Comparison of Nivea and Isana oils:

1. Consistency:
  • Nivea oil is thick and foam poorly
  • Isana oil is thinner than Nivea, however it foams better
Of course, in the case of oils, you can't talk about foaming, because there is a big difference between how foaming body wash oil and shower gel.
2. hydration
  • it is difficult for me to determine the hydration of Nivea oil, because after the first use it terribly sensitized me.
  • Isana oil moisturizes quite well. However, I expected something more. You can't talk about the fact that we won't have to use body lotion. At least for dry skin. I suspect that this product will work on normal skin.
3. Price
  • Nivea oil costs approx. 16 PLN / 200 ml
  • Isana oil is PLN 5 / 200 ml (I bought it for PLN 3,99 as a promotion).
4. Composition
  • Nivea: Glycine Soja, MIPA-Laureth Sulfate, Ricinus Communis, Laureth-4, Cocamide DEA, Poloxamer 101, Parfum, Triticum Vulgare, Citric Acid, Aqua, Panthenol, BHT, Propyl Gallate, Linalool, Butylphenyl Methylpropolene, , Hydroxyisohexyl 3-Cyclohexene Carboxaldehyde, Coumarin, Alpha-Isomethyl Ionone, Eugenol, Hexyl Cinnamal
  • Isana: Glycine Soja, Mipa Laureth Sulfate, Laureth-4, Hellianthus Annuus, Parfum, BHT, Panthenol, Tocopheryl Acetate
5. Smell
When I was looking for information about oils before buying, I often came across opinions about their fragrance. In my opinion, neither one oil nor the other stinks (and certainly not fish) but this is a matter of taste. Isana oil has a slightly more intense fragrance. It reminds me of bar soap. The smell did not bother me when using the product.
Summarizing: Nivea oil didn't work for me at all. He sensitized me terribly and dried my skin. He came to sister P.
I used Isana oil to the end, but it did not meet my expectations because it did not moisturize what I expected from it. I'd rather not go back to him.
I have now bought Alterra orange and vanilla shower gel. We'll see how this product works on my skin.

    Rather, I don't use oils, although the one from Isana was and was ok :)

      There are two types of body oils. The version you write about is a shower gel with oil, not oil. Additionally, it has SLS.

    For me, oils do not work well, hydration is negligible. Recently, I really liked babydream gel (with a purple lid). Regards 🙂

      I completely forgot about it and wanted to buy it. Well ... next time I will take this product :-)
