It’s actually been a while since I’ve used products from The Body Shop, and I’ve now officially fallen in love with them all over again. This is the brand new Oils of Life collection…
The Oils Of Life collection is a brand new set of facial skincare products infused with black cumin seed oil, rosehip seed oil and camellia seed oil, known for their supreme revitalising and repairing properties on skin. These products have been created to intensely revitalise skin, revive radiance and leave your skin feeling nourished.
This collection includes four skincare products, and a fantastic looking facial massager – which I don’t have unfortunately, I really want to try it though!
So let’s talk a bit about oils… oils can have so many benefits for the skin, such as maintaining hydration (as oils prevent loss of water). They can be used for cleansing, many are lightweight and easily absorbed, and oils with anti-bacterial, anti-microbal and anti-fungal properties can also help to reduce breakouts.
It’s a well known myth that you should steer away from oils if your skin is oily – just to reiterate, this is a myth. Just listen to skincare guru Caroline Hirons who will explain all about oils a lot better than I ever could. – She also uses the fab looking facial massager I mentioned above –
Personally, I’m a big fan of facial oils, as my skin tends to be dry, it always feels so much plumper and just better all round after using oil products. Let’s take a look at the collection…
- Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil (£28.00)
This is a beautifully presented lightweight daily facial oil, infused with cold-pressed seed oils that promise to give new life to your skin. And give new life it does! I’ve used this a few times now and each time my skin feels instantly nourished, as well as looking brighter and revived. The oil itself is beautifully lightweight and quickly-absorbed into the skin, with a non-sticky finish.
- Intensely Revitalising Bi-Phase Essence Lotion (£15.00)
So for those that don’t know, ‘bi-phase’ means an oil + water based product – so it’s important to shake well before use as the two parts will separate in the bottle. This Essence Lotion has a wonderfully lightweight and refreshing texture, and it instantly absorbs into the skin, leaving my complexion softer, smoother and more radiant.
- Intensely Revitalising Cream (£25.00)
This is a lovely soft daily cream designed to both replenish and revitalise skin. This cream sinks into the skin, leaving it feeling plumped and nourished, with a light, non greasy finish. Over time, The Body Shop advises that signs of ageing will appear reduced too – bonus!
What a fantastic collection! If your skin is a bit lacklustre at the moment and in need of a boost – as many of us will be due to the change in weather, I highly recommend trying some of The Oils of Life Collection – you won’t be disappointed.
The Oils of Life Collection is available now from The Body Shop.
