The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Sleeping Cream | Review

Last month, during my quest to find the perfect night cream, I was introduced to the newly launched Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Sleeping Cream by The Body Shop. If you remember, a volunteer close to our team had reviewed the amazing facial oil from Oils of Life range last year, and was highly impressed with the results. Naturally, we were quite excited to test this new launch. With winter coming up, all of us (especially those with dry skin) can do with a hydrating night cream, that can leave your skin feeling supple and well moisturised the next day. We kickstarted our test period with high expectations. Read on to know how this product fared.

What? - The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Sleeping Cream

Quantity - 80ml   Price: Rs 2495

What does it promise? - A night cream that moisturises, revitalises and nourishes your skin while you sleep. Reducing the signs of ageing, you'll look visibly more rested with a supple and rejuvenated complexion. Combining 3 precious cold-pressed seed oils known for their healing properties and 7 powerful essential oils, this cushiony cream is a potent source of nutrients for your skin while you slumber. Your skin will have new vitality and life with this nourishing lotion. 

Main Ingredients: Black Cumin seed oil from Egypt, Camellia seed oil from China and Rosehip seed oil from Chile – with a powerful blend of essential oils.

How to use?Apply every evening after your facial oil or serum to revitalise your skin night after night. Massage gently onto your face, then neck and décolleté in an upward motion. Leave overnight.

Fragrance: A lot like the Oils of Life facial oil, thanks to the ingredients, of course. The essential oils create a wonderful blend. The fragrance is not very strong, but aromatic enough to put you off to sleep like a baby. Black cumin and Rosehip seed oil notes stand out. 

Packaging: Very classy. The cream comes in a glass jar, which has a plastic lid in between to prevent the product from spilling. The jar can get a little heavy to carry around, so it is best suggested that you transfer the cream to a smaller jar while traveling.

Texture: Rich, smooth and silky; the texture of this sleeping cream is one of the best I have come across so far. It does not leave any grime or shine on your face, and absorbs quickly. 

Experience: Very few products manage to suit my skin type and exceed expectations. But, this amazing sleeping cream by The Body Shop has fast become a favourite already. During the trial (for almost a month), our night skincare routine started off with cleansing, followed by using Oils of Life facial oil and post a five minute break, gently massaging the Oils of Life sleeping cream. You don't require too much of the product, which means the jar shall last you for a good 6 - 8 months (depending on usage). Despite the supremely rich and creamy texture, the product absorbs very well within 10 - 15 minutes and leaves a nice, subtle glow. We think the cream is perfect for individuals with both normal to dry and normal to oily skin type. It does the job of hydrating, repairing and replenishing your skin from within overnight. The next morning, you do wake up with supple skin. Your skin feels moisturised and soft, while fragrance of this cream continues to linger. Over time, you do feel the difference in your skin, as it feels replenished and less dehydrated. While we don't know about it's anti-ageing properties, it performs all the other tasks quite well. Clearly, this product meets all the promises made by the brand and of course, our expectations too. Since it's fall and winter is just around the corner, we suggest you stock up on this cream and add it to your daily night skincare routine already. Time to bid dry skin patches and same old night creams adieu. This cream is worth all your money!

Pros: Rich texture
Excellent hydrating and moisturising properties
Classy packaging
Absorbs well
Suitable for all skin types
Supports a cause
Not tested on animals

Cons: The jar is not travel friendly

Verdict: Highly recommended! It is definitely turning out to be one of our favourite products this year. Worth the price, and comes with a good shelf life. Go, buy it!
