Oils of Life range by The Body Shop has been creating news since they have been launched and I picked the gel cream which claims to be intensely revitalising. Read on to know how it fared for my combination skin.
Price – Rs 2095/- for 50 ml
We searched around the world and selected 3 precious seed oils known for their supreme revitalizing and repairing properties on skin:
– Black Cumin Seed Oil from Egypt- known for its concentration in antioxidants.
– Rosehip Seed Oil from Chile, rich in repairing Omega 3 and 6.
– Camellia oil from China, naturally rich in nutritive oleic acid.
How to use:
After nourishing skin with our Intensely Revitalizing Essence Lotion, apply a pea-sized amount onto fingertips and massage onto face and neck in an upward, circular motion. Can be used every morning and/or evening.
My Experience with The Body Shop Oils Of Life Intensely Revitalising Gel Cream:
The packaging of the gel cream is classy but not very user/travel friendly. It is bulky and made of glass, so is almost impossible to travel with. The tub packaging is not very user friendly as there is always a hygiene factor that comes into play. There is a protective shield to the gel cream which ensures there is no spillage.
The texture is the best feature of the product in my opinion. The gel-cream consistency is a delight on the skin. Only a wee bit of the product goes a long way and hence the steep pricing is somewhat justified. On massaging, the gel cream gets absorbed in no time at all giving a healthy glow to the face instantly.
The skin remains hydrated for a pretty long time and does not feel stretchy or uncomfortable. When applied at night, I wake up with a lovely glow and a bit of plump. I love how my skin looks and feels when I apply this. But the issue with this is, it gives a slight burning sensation to the face immediately after application. People with sensitive skin might find it a bit bothersome as the warming up feeling might not be the best thing.
As long as the product gives desired results, I think the aforesaid con can be overlooked. It gives a feeling to me that the product is actually working!
