Feeling revitalized: The Body Shop Oils of Life collection

oils title

It’s November, meaning your life is probably going to get a lot more crazier as the holiday season approaches. Between busyness and the dreaded winter cold, your skin is going to be going through a lot of things for the next few months, making it super important to ensure it gets the TLC it needs.

The Body Shop released a new skincare line a few months back called the Oils of Life collection, a new daily life-infusing skincare range to revitalize skin, replenish nutrition, revive radiance, and visibly reduce signs of aging. Every product in the line contains an expert blend of three exceptional seed oils from Egypt, Chile and China, known for their supreme abilities to repair and revitalize skin.

Apparently seed oils are a thing now. Because seeds give life to new plants, that makes them one of the most concentrated sources of essential nutrients on Earth.  Cold-pressed to their pure form, The Body Shop preserved their potent properties to ensure the utmost affinity to skin.  Each product contains Black Cumin Seed Oil (known for its concentration in antioxidants) from the Egyptian Nile Valley, Camellia Seed Oil (natural rich in nutritive oleic acids) from the evergreen trees of China, and Rosehip Seed Oil (rich in Omega 3 and 6) from the Andes Foothills of Chile.

This collection includes four products (plus a face massager).


Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Essence Lotion (C$22)

A bi-phase oil (oil and water) formula, this is the first step after cleansing, a daily lotion that provides instant visible results while preparing and activating skin for the next steps in the routine.

Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Facial Oil (C$44)

A daily facial oil that intensely revitalizes skin and visibly reduces signs of aging. Made from 99 per cent oils of natural origin, this lightweight oil effortlessly melts onto skin, leaving a silky soft, non-sticky finish. Apply one to two drops onto the face and neck and gently massage into skin morning and evening before applying a cream.

Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Gel Cream (C$34)

A gel cream with illuminating micro-pearls. This gel cream is a lighter alternative to the cream version, which intensely revitalizes skin, leaving a fresh finish without a greasy feel. Apply morning and night.

Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Cream (C$34)

A thicker cream than its gel counterpart, this also contains perfecting micro-pearls that effortlessly absorb into skin, leaving a light and comfortable finish without a greasy feel.  Skin feels nourished, suppler, and smoother.  After four weeks of usage signs of aging are supposed to appear reduced.

I’ve been using these products for the past week and although it’s too soon to tell of any difference, I do enjoy the complexion of my skin.  Usually with new face products I do have the tendency to break out, however, this stuff has been great on my skin so far.  I did include the SRPs on these products, however, The Body Shop constantly offers discounts on their products.  I would recommend this line; it’s very lightweight and I love the use of the oil products as I do find that they are great to add to your skincare regime.
