The Body Shop (TBS) recently came out with a new line of skin care – The Oils of Life range. The range has 4 items; 2 moisturisers (one for oily/combo, one for normal/dry), an essence lotion and a facial oil. All the products contain three main oils: black cumin seed, camellia oil and rosehip oil.
TBS has really stepped up in their skin care game and The Intensely Revitalising Gel Cream really deserves a mention and a pat on the back.
As the name suggests the consistency is somewhere between a gel and a light cream. The texture is simply beautiful -smooth and extremely light weight.
Looking at this amber coloured gel-cream at the store, I was not quite sure how my sometime-normal-sometime-oily skin would take it since it had oils in it, but surprisingly after a little slather on my wrist, my skin absorbed within seconds and it plumped up, looking hydrated (thanks to the aircons). The store lady said that it was meant for oily/combination skin types and the oils in the product will not make the skin oil-slick but would make it supple and bright.
And she was right!
I have been using the gel-cream everyday in the morning and before going to bed since my purchase and I like it a lot. It has a very slight pearly sheen to it which makes the skin glowy. If I have to wear makeup, its goes on smoothly on top of the moisturiser. For me it is perfect for an everyday moisturiser.
The product comes in a luxurious glass jar and the smell of it is just amazing, I wouldn’t even try to explain how calming it is!
Although the whole range is slightly on the spendy side than the other TBS ranges, but the gel-cream is well worth the price tag.
So next time do pop by TBS store and ask for sample to try.
