The Body Shop | Oils Of Life

I have always been a fan of The Body Shop and their products, especially their body lotions. I think I have about 6 body butters sitting in my drawers waiting to be used!
But one thing I haven't really tried is their skincare range but have heard many good reviews about it. So when an email landed in my inbox asking if I would like to try out some of their new products from two of their new collections I couldn't wait. I received three products from their Spa Of The World range (a post to come on them soon) and three products from their Oils Of Life range, which is what today's post is all about.

The Oils of Life range is designed for mature skin, so you're probably thinking why am I reviewing it then. Well, the products themselves are designed to revitalise the skin and to give your skin a well needed boost.
Inside these amazing products are three very special seeds that have been sourced to bring the best skincare to us on the high street. The three key ingredients are; Rosehip seed oil from Chile, Camellia seed oil from China and Black cumin seed oil from Egypt. Each ingredient was selected as they are known for their preserving properties.

Give new life to your skin with our new collection infused with black cumin seed oil, rosehip seed oil and camellia seed oil, known for their supreme revitalising and repairing properties on skin. This daily routine has been created to intensely revitalise skin, revive radiance and visibly reduce signs of ageing.

I have had a play with all three products for the past week or so and although I can't give you a complete review as it's only been a short while, I can give you my first impressions. I use all three products together on a daily basis so I can achieve the best results.
These products do have a scent to them, which I actually like. I would describe the scent as a typical spa kind of scent, very pleasant and makes you feel quite relaxed.

Intensively Revitalising Essence Lotion - £15 for 160ml* | This unique bi-phase oil [oil + water] formula is your essential first step after cleansing to prepare and activate your skin for the next steps of the routine.
As it's a 'bi-phase oil', you need to shake the bottle to mix them together. I then pour a little amount on a cotton pad and gently sweep it all over my face. I love using cleansing lotions as I feel like it removes any dirt or makeup that my face wash didn't get. My face is left feeling clean and refreshed, ready for the next step.

Intensively Revitalising Facial Oil - £28 for 30ml* | With 99% oils of natural origin, this lightweight facial oil reduces the signs of ageing and effortlessly melts into your complexion for smoother, softer feeling skin. 
As I have combination skin, I am always a bit wary of using an oil on my face but this facial oil is lovely and light. I like the style of this bottle and the pipette it comes with. This makes it so much easier to apply the correct amount without getting in an oily mess. I gently massage this into my face and it sinks in quite quickly without leaving an oily residue.

Intensively Revitalising Cream - £25 for 50ml* | Wonderfully sensorial from the moment it touches your face, this daily cream with a silky-soft texture contains skin-perfecting micro-pearls for more youthful-looking, smoother and softer feeling skin with a non-greasy finish. 
This is a lovely thick cream but feels very soft to the touch. Although it's thick, it doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy but instead well moisturised and a lovely base to apply my makeup. I also feel it would be a great face cream in the winter months too.

The Oils Of Life range launches online and in store from 1st September 2015.
