The Body Shop Oils of Life Range Review

The Body Shop and its products need no introduction. They are very well know for their cruelty free and vegetarian products in various departments like skincare, hair care, body care and makeup. All these products are widely used and loved. V and I love trying out new products and recently we have been loving The Oils of Life range of products from this brand a lot. We have tried almost all the products from this range and have loved the experiences we had using them. With this post, we would like to share our review on the products that we have used.

About Oils of Life

The distinguishing factor about this range of products is that the base of all of its products is a blend of three distinct oils – black cumin seed oil, camellia seed oil and rosehip oil. Each of these oils have skin improving properties and when used together as a blend, they help improve elasticity of skin, makes it form, revitalizes and nourishes and provides natural radiance.

Lets dig a little further into each of the individual products for their review.

Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Cream

This is an extremely rich hydrating cream which is great for normal dry to very dry skin. It will also work well when used in small amount on normal skin. A little goes a long way and a pea size amount of this is enough for one time use. The fragrance is amazing and very natural. Right from first few uses, it makes your skin soft, supple and more radiant. Regular use of this cream gives you a firmer skin and more healthy looking.

Oils of life Sleeping Cream

body shop, sleeping cream

We put this review to rest with Oils of life sleeping cream which like other products in this range is formulated with 3 precious seed oils by infusing them with 7 essential oils from around the world. It, definitely, is a product worth looking at as it has a rich and creamy texture, excellent hydrating properties, absorbs really quickly for a night cream. The skin feels supple and soft from the very first application and visibly nourished, revitalized with the continuous application. Both of us at besties feel that our skin was less dehydrated with the regular application of this cream in combination with the facial oil. The essential oils create a wonderful aromatic blend of fragrance which helps you sleep like a baby. In a nutshell:

  • Supple, soft and hydrated skin
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • The jar shall last for about 6-8 months, as you require only a little bit for application
  • Essential oil blend creates an aromatic fragrance which helps you sleep better

Order online from here.

In a nutshell, it is a great range of products. The entire range is bit on the pricier side but you may pair them up with offers to get a good deal. From the revitalizing cream and revitalizing gel, you only need one based on your skin type, they both mostly work the same way.

BN Recommends – 4.5/5

There are a couple of more products in this range and while we haven’t used them, we are sure they live up to their expectations as well just like all the other products in the range do. We hope you liked our review on Oils of Life range from The Body Shop. We love this range and would encourage you to give it a try. If you have used any of these products, we would love to know your thoughts on these.
