The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE Intensely Revitalising Gel Cream Review, Price And Pictures
Hello my pretties!
How have you all been? I am finally back after my wedding to continue with the reviews of all the skincare stuff I had got to pamper my skin during this dry season. 🙂 After the amazing oils of life bi-phase essence, this is the wonderful revitalising gel cream which is ideal for ladies with oily-combo skin! Read on to know more!
By infusing 3 precious seed oils from around the world, known for their revitalising and repairing properties on skin – Black Cumin seed oil from Egypt, Camellia seed oil from China and Rosehip seed oil from Chile – in to a dewy-fresh gel cream with illuminating micro-pearls, we created a lighter alternative to the cream that intensely revitalises skin. Skin feels instantly freshly hydrated and suppler. From the moment it touches the skin, this Intensely Revitalising Gel Cream delicately melts onto the face, leaving a fresh light finish without a greasy feel.
- Dewy-fresh daily nourishing gel cream infused with 3 precious seed oils from around the world to replenish and revitalise skin.
- Cold-pressed seed oils to preserve potent properties and ensure the utmost affinity to skin.
- Melting but light and non-greasy.
- Skin feels freshly recharged with moisture, appears visibly smoother and revived with radiance*
Price: 2095/- INR for 50gm
How to use:
Apply every morning and evening. Apply a pea-sized amount onto fingertips and massage gently on face and neck in an upward motion. Avoid eye area.
My Take on The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE Intensely Revitalising Gel Cream:
The gel cream comes in a heavy golden-amber glass tub packaging with a matte black screw-on lid and it is definitely not convenient to travel around with or hygienic ‘coz you have to dip your fingers inside and scoop out the cream. :-/ Otherwise though it looks very poised and pretty on my dresser. 😀
The cream is very gel-like, pale yellow in colour, extremely light and liquid-y and spreads on skin like a dream. 🙂 My skin instantly drinks it up and feels cooled, soothed and supple. <3 Being the unfortunate owner of an extremely oily t-zone, I was amazed to find that this gel cream hydrates my drier cheeks adequately while not making my oily zones oilier! Score!
The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE Intensely Revitalising Gel Cream Swatch
The fragrance is very like the bi-phase essene- very cumin-like, spicy and with a hint of lime..I thoroughly like this gel cream version better though. It’s mellowed down and subtle!
The hydration is quite light and lasts for a few hours before I have to reapply. However, I think it will fare much better in the summers and will give the other parallel creams like the Clinique Moisture Thirst Relief Cream a run for their money.
Pros of The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE™ Intensely Revitalising Gel Cream
- The golden-amber glass tub is very pretty to look at 🙂
- The texture of the cream is very lovely gel-like, light and cooling <3
- Gets instantly absorbed into skin and leaves no residue.
- Hydrates my drier cheeks and balances the oil of my t-zone!
- Spicy warm fragrance with a lime hint.
Cons of The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE™ Intensely Revitalising Gel Cream
- Very expensive!
- Inconvenient to carry around.
- Not enough hydration for winters.
My Rating: 4/5
Do I recommend?
For people with oily skin who have a hard time searching for a soothing gel-based cream to hydrate their skin yet not make it oily, The Body Shop brings out an ideal mid-range perfect cream (mid-range compared to Clinique and MAC of course!) which is HG for oily-combi skinned beauties and will be amazing for us in summers especially. 🙂 Definitely give this The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE™ Intensely Revitalising Gel Cream a try!
Thats it for today pretties! Keep watching this space for my next post! Ciao!

[alert-note] Sounds like a great summer moisturiser to me. Especially for those with an oily or combination skin. Wonder why they launched it in the dry winter season. Nice review Agni and Congratulations again on the wedding. :* [/alert-note]
