Last Friday I was invited to The Body Shop in Middlesbrough to celebrate the launch of their new Oils of Life range. The lovely girls at the Middlesbrough store put on an inviting spread of non-alcoholic fizz, chocolates and grapes whilst they talked us through the new products and let us loose to buy some goodies for ourselves.
The Oils of Life range is a combination of oils, creams and gels to help revitalise your skin. The products from the Oils of Life collection are made up of seed oils taken from black cumin, rosehip and camellia. Looking at the packaging, you can see that The Body Shop are attempting to make their products more high end to reflect the quality of their new range which is slightly higher priced than the main collection.
We were given a sample of the Intensely Revitalising Cream and Gel to trial and see what we thought. I decided to use the gel for daytime wear as it has a light consistency. I found that the gel absorbed well and made my face feel fresh before I went on to apply my make up.
The cream is much richer and makes you feel like you’re giving your skin a real pamper. I’ve really enjoyed applying the cream to my face before bed to help keep my face hydrated whilst I sleep. The only downside to these products is the scent which I found quite overpowering.
We were also introduced to the Spa of the World range which again has luxurious packaging which I can just picture sitting on the shelves the next time I go to a spa for a massage. We were shown a hand massage demonstration using the products from the spa collection which was interesting to watch. The Japanese Camellia cream was my favourite product from the range as it has a beautiful velvety texture and a lovely elegant fragrance.
