The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Facial Oil Review

I am so excited to share the review of this facial oil. I know a LOT of you were waiting for this one. This oil is definitely one of the most hyped products launched in the last few months, and everyone around the world is loving it! So without even a little wait, let me start this review. 🙂

The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Facial Oil Review

Product Description:
Infused with three precious seed oils and a blend of seven essential oils, we’ve created the Oils of Life™ Intensely Revitalizing Facial Oil. The lightweight and quickly absorbing texture leaves a non-sticky finish, melting onto the skin, leaving it silky and soft. Instantly, skin appears smoother, more radiant, revived, revitalized and nourished. After 4 weeks, the signs of aging appear reduced, wrinkles appear minimized, and skin feels more elastic and firm.

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 Seed Oil from China- naturally rich in nutritive oleic acid

How to Use:
This dermatologically tested oil can be applied every morning and evening before applying a cream. Apply 1 to 2 drops maximum (2-3 for very dry skin) onto the face and neck and gently massage into the skin. Follow with one of our Oils of Life moisturizers.


INR 3,095 for 30 ml

My Skin Type:
Norma-Dry skin with some blemishes

My Experience with The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalizing Facial Oil:

The packaging is absolutely beautiful in ombre, but the bottle is made of glass. So, if you are clumsy, apply it while you are sitting on a bed for this is expensive. It has a wonderful dropper that lets to control the amount of product dispensed. I really like the packaging – so convenient and cute. This glass bottle comes in a white outer packaging that has every freaking detail about the product. Is it travel-friendly? It just depends on how you carry your products. 😛


Texture, Consistency, Fragrance:
To be honest, this is my first facial oil. I was not expecting it to miraculously transform my skin within a few uses. I was also expecting it to be super heavy, sticky and greasy. But the texture and consistency of this oil took me by surprise. It is super lightweight, not like your usual oils. It gets absorbed into the skin within seconds, but you have to massage it in. I cannot attest whether it is greasy or not, since I have used it in winters so far. But, I assume it will be great for my skin type during summers as well. Else, applying it at nighttime will still be feasible. It has a nice, sweet fragrance with dominant notes of cumin. It is a perfect mix of sweet and spicy, but it does not last long and you cannot sniff it once the oil is on/in your skin.

How I Use it:
I have been using this oil religiously for over a month now, and am very impressed. If you have read my previous reviews, you would know that I love products that do everything they claim. Just scroll up, read the product description and this oil does every single thing it claims. I am absolutely enjoying using it. I use it twice a day – morning and evening as my moisturiser. I do not feel that I require any cream after this. In summers, though, I feel I would apply it only at night if I have to go out during the day. I apply my full makeup over it too and it does not affect the wear time of my products, especially foundation. In fact, it makes my skin look radiant.

This oil is infused with three precious seed oils and a blend of seven essential oils – what else do you need? I was never a fan of TBS products and found them overhyped until I actually started using this range. It is just perfect. With continuous usage, my skin has become so much better. My skin is always moisturised and looks good even without makeup. My skin is always soft and smooth, and looks so good. Since it is very moisturising, I thought it would accentuate my pores like Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Masque but it does not affect them. As I mentioned, I do have a few blemishes on my face, it does not treat them. But then, it does not really claim to. Another plus – it has made my skin even toned and has even improved my overall complexion. So overall, it makes my skin “radiant, revived, revitalized and nourished”, as claimed.


Since my skin does not have fine lines and wrinkles yet, I don’t know if it can treat them. But my skin does feel more elastic and firm. Overall, my skin is repaired, well moisturized, healthy and beautiful (at least according to me). I am stunned to see good results and this product has definitely made me try various TBS products too. I cannot emphasize how much I am in love with this wonderful concoction. All the good ingredients really pay off and I feel I have invested my money in the right place.


Just get it, if your pocket allows!

  1. I have to include a night time facial oil in my routine as my skin isn’t behaving since the past few months. I have extremely oily skin in summers and combination in winters which is extremely blemish-prone. Now I have dark spots and pores all over and thus I am in desperate need for a retexturising serum. I was thinking of going for the Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate. But then as I was going through TBS website I came across this one. Now I am confused. Which one do you think I should go for?
