Every now and again, we all deserve to pamper ourselves and indulge in a luxurious skin treat that smells divine, nourishes the skin, and lifts our spirits #SelfCare.
Now, I’m not a huge body moisturiser lover. I have oily skin, and I find many body lotions and creams to be a bit too rich and heavy. They often leave my skin feeling oily and sticky, which is not the vibe. But when I get the right one that hydrates my skin but is super lightweight and non-greasy, I suddenly become a body moisturiser obsessive.
Could Bali Body’s brand-new Antioxidant Body Whip be the answer? The luxurious body moisturiser promises to be light, hydrating, and calming while leaving skin silky smooth. I wanted to know whether this body whip would live up to its claims.
Keep reading my Bali Body Antioxidant Body Whip review to find out whether this decadent body moisturiser is a holy grail product.
What is Bali Body?
Bali Body is an Australian, vegan, and cruelty-free beauty company that creates nourishing and beneficial products for the skin.
Over 6 years ago, a young Australian couple had a vision to create natural and vegan friendly suncare products.Bali Body
The company is famous for its tanning products, like its Gradual Face Tan, but it also does an excellent range of skincare, personal care, and suncare products. Bali Body has created a tonne of ‘how to’ videos for people looking to apply the brand’s products in the best and most effective way.
Bali Body Antioxidant Body Whip claims and ingredients
The Bali Body Antioxidant Body Whip claims to intensely hydrate and firm the skin, leaving it silky smooth and nourished. It also promises to extend the life of any fake tan.

The whipped body moisturiser is supposed to fight inflammation to calm irritated skin and repair scar tissue. The moisturiser also promises to reduce the appearance of cellulite. It further claims to be non-greasy, fast-absorbing, and lightweight with a natural grapefruit scent. Bali Body says it’s suitable for all skin types and daily use.
Excluding water, the top 5 ingredients on the INCI list are:
- Niacinamide: a powerhouse ingredient that has a heap of skin benefits. It helps reduce the appearance of enlarged pores, control excess sebum, improve uneven skin tone, brighten the skin, and boost the skin’s barrier and hydration
- Shea butter: an emollient (softens or soothes skin) with smoothing properties for dry skin. It’s rich in skin-replenishing fatty acids and antioxidants
- Glycerin: has hydrating properties
- Camellia sinensis leaf extract: a soothing antioxidant extracted from the minimally processed buds and leaves of green tea
- Jojoba seed oil: a non-fragrant emollient that enhances skin’s restorative properties. It’s a rich source of numerous fatty acids and antioxidants
See the full INCI list below:

Honest Bali Body Antioxidant Body Whip review
I’ve been using the Bali Body Antioxidant Body Whip for about 2 weeks, and it’s a lovely product.
Firstly, the texture is divine. It has this unique whipped consistency that’s rich, thick, and almost fluffy. It’s giving expensive vibes and I love it.
Despite the rich texture, the body moisturiser is surprisingly lightweight and absorbent. I was worried that the product wouldn’t melt into my skin and would sit on top feeling heavy and greasy. But it buffs into the skin effortlessly and doesn’t feel sticky whatsoever.
I love the invigorating grapefruit scent too. It’s fresh, sweet, and citrusy without being overpowering. The scent lasts on the skin for about an hour or so before disappearing.
My favourite thing about this body moisturiser is how nourishing, hydrating, and firming it is. Once applied, my skin immediately feels softer, more moisturised, and smoother. It has a noticeable firming effect too. While the firming sensation is more of a short-term effect, it does make my skin feel very supple and healthy, which I enjoy.
The body moisturiser boasts a strong INCI list, with plenty of great ingredients that nourish, soothe, and hydrate the skin. However, it does contain some potentially irritating fragrances – limonene and linalool – so if you’re sensitive to fragrance or simply don’t like fragranced skincare (natural or synthetic), this is something to be mindful of.
I don’t wear fake tan, so I can’t properly review whether this body moisturiser helps extend the longevity of self-tan.
Do I believe this body moisturiser helps with cellulite? No, not really. Cellulite is very difficult to get rid of and is often down to hormones, lifestyle factors, and genetics. Over-the-counter or prescription creams just don’t cut it, unfortunately. But I went into this review knowing that the cream wouldn’t help with cellulite.
Where to buy
Costing £26.95, you can purchase the Antioxidant Body Whip directly from Bali Body. I think this is a fairly reasonable price. There are a lot of cheaper body moisturisers on the market that do a good job of nourishing the skin. However, this one does feel that bit more luxe and is very indulgent.
Do I recommend the Bali Body Antioxidant Body Whip?
If you love decadent body care and want to treat yourself to a rich, lovely-smelling, and truly hydrating moisturiser, you’ll enjoy the Bali Body Antioxidant Body Whip. It’s not a must-have item, but for those all-important self-care days, this is a pampering treat that I’m reaching for a lot. Plus, this would make a gorgeous Mother’s Day gift!
