This fall The Body Shop is harvesting the potent power of natural seed oils to promote healthy, radiant skin! The Oils of Life Collection is inspired by ancient beauty secrets from around the globe and the skin loving formulas are infused with 3 nourishing oils including: Black Cumin Seed from the Egyptian Nile Valley, Rosehip Oil from the Andes foothills in Chile and Camellia Oil from the evergreen trees of China. As you open these decadent bottles the exotic botanical bouquet transports you to faraway lands while you indulge, relax and pamper your skin.
Cumin Oil is known for its high antioxidant concentration while Camellia and Rosehip are abundant in oleic acid and rich omega 3 and 6 to deeply moisturize and nourish. The Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil is cold pressed, high in nutrients and packaged in a pretty amber bottle with an easy to use medicine dropper applicator. The composition is 99% natural oil and enriched with olive, jojoba, rosemary, orange, lavender and other conditioning extracts to ensure your skin looks revitalized, dewy and youthful!
I apply the oil to clean, dry skin on its own or layered under the cream for extra hydration and it gives my face an instant pick-me-up and a boost of lasting moisture. The oil is lightweight with little residue (depending on how much you apply) and it absorbs quickly with no stickiness. I use a drop or two before bed as it is a fabulous overnight treatment to repair, heal and smooth the texture of my skin for a soft, silky finish. I also enjoy dabbing it onto my lips, nails and hands to alleviate dry skin and damaged cuticles. Applying a thin layer to my eyelashes also helps fortify and promote growth especially after repeated mascara removal. For fall and winter this oil will definitely be one of my go-to products for battling the weather and it doesn’t clog pores or cause acne. The 30 ml bottle retails for $44.00.
This wonderful blend of seeds and plant extracts can also be enjoyed in both a gel and cream formula if you haven’t quite warmed up to the idea of using face oil. The cream has a richer texture that melts onto the face for a light, comfortable finish without a greasy residue. It has the same powerful emollients and fresh botanical spa scent as the oil and it only takes a pea sized amount to intensely moisturize for soft, resilient skin. It also minimizes the look of wrinkles to help fight the signs of aging. The 50 ml jar is $34.00.
For cool, invigorating hydration the gel is a lighter alternative to the cream formula with illuminating micro-pearls for radiance and vitality. Skin looks plump, replenished smooth and dewy and I love the moist, refreshing finish and the conditioning components that protect and prep my skin for makeup. The 50 ml jar retails for $34.00.
