The Body Shop have gone and done it. They’ve surpassed my expectations of loveliness with the divine new Oils of Life range. Can we just take a minute to admire their new luxury line? *Drools*
When I first saw the products, I wanted to burst into a spontaneous round of applause but the polite conventions of being ‘normal’ stopped me. Grrr… normal.
Everything about Oils of Life screams luxury from the stylish white embossed boxes and gold labels to the dark glass jars and heavenly scented product inside.
The Oils of Life range uses the highest quality, sustainably sourced (of course!) cold-pressed seed oils. Formulated with black cumin seed oil (antioxidants), camellia seed oil (oleic acids) and rosehip seed oil (omegas 3 and 6), the products promise to deliver concentrated sources of essential nutrients to the skin.
I’ve been using the range for seven weeks now and am running dangerously low on product (boo!). Here’s how I got on:
The Body Shop Oils of Life Facial Oil
This is by far my favourite product from the new line. Formulated with 99% natural oils – as The Body Shop said themselves, we can’t all be perfect – the oil melts into the skin, leaving it silky soft. I love a good face oil and this is definitely one of the best sensorial experiences you’ll have before bedtime (ooh matron! Behave). Love it.
*Revitalising Facial Oil 30ml €48.00
The Body Shop Oils of Life Gel Cream
I’d never used a gel cream moisturiser so was intrigued to try this out. Formulated with illuminating micro pearls, it’s a lighter alternative to the face cream and gives skin a dewy glow. I found this non-greasy and preferred to use it in the morning under make-up. Again it smells amazing – I had to hide this one from Mr TBI!
*Revitalising Gel Cream 50ml €42.50
The Body Shop Oils of Life Cream
I use the Intensely Revitalising Cream at night when I need an extra little sumthin’-sumthin’. The rich creamy formula leaves skin soft and plump. And have I mentioned how good it all smells?? Heavenly. I’ll be gutted when I run out of all three products. As I said, a round of applause for The Body Shop!
*Revitalising Cream 50ml €42.50
