I am such a huge fan of The Body Shop’s Oils of Life and the newest cream to the range Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Sleeping Cream* certainly is a very welcome addition. I previously reviewed the Oils of Life range here but here’s a quick recap. The Oils of Life range uses 3 different precious seed oils: black cumin, camellia, and rosehip oil. All of which are known to intensely moisturise and protect the skin. The Oils of Life range will help restore vitality and suits most skin types and age ranges. The Oils of Life range is one of my favourite skin care ranges. Intensely moisturising and really kind to sensitive skin. I’ve just had a thought, The Body Shop should definitely add a cleansing oil to this range, that’d be perfect, thanks.
Unsurprisingly Oils of Life Sleeping Cream is used at night (!) and it is a very luxurious feeling treat for the end of the day. The Body Shop say the sleeping cream will help revitalise the skin, make it more supple, nourish it, make it appear visibly rested and also reduce the signs of ageing. And I have to say it’s doing a pretty good job at that so far. Oils of Life Sleeping Cream feels incredibly nourishing on the skin. The thick oil-in-cream sinks in relatively quickly and delivers an amazing amount of hydration. It really is a lovely cream to put on before going to sleep. In fact, it’s probably one of the nicest and best night creams I’ve used. One of the things I love most about the sleeping cream is that it doesn’t feel heavy or greasy on the skin like a lot of night creams can. It sinks in fully leaving the skin soft and comfortable, like a cosy pair of jammies ahhh.
The beautiful coloured glass packaging stores 80ml of product. A little goes a long way but if you feel you want to put extra on it still sinks in easily. I use Oils of Life Sleeping Cream as a very last step but if you want to add another oil, for example (I’ve been using an oil from Sond and the oil from Oils of Life occasionally), on top of this I’ve had no problems adding extra products. My skin doesn’t feel overloaded nor greasy. Or alternatively, I’ve also used serum and oil under the sleeping cream with absolutely no problems either. Given that the Oils of Life Sleeping Cream is a night cream it’s surprisingly light yet still very hydrating.
Oils of Life Sleeping Cream smells like the rest of the Oils of Life range. It has a warming, spa like scent that I adore but if you’re a bit wary of scents I’d definitely have a test in store. I should add that the fragrance doesn’t cause me any irritation and I do have skin sensitive to fragranced products. None of the Oils of Life range irritate my skin in fact and that includes the sleeping cream. I just find them to be really nourishing and comforting on my combination/sensitive skin.
I think The Body Shop Sleeping Cream would suit most skins, even oily, in fact it might help balance out oily skins. Dehydrated and sensitive skins would particularly benefit from this cream, but I genuinely think it would work universally. I’m so impressed with The Body Shop products lately, the packaging is just brilliant but more importantly the products actually seem to work. I’m really excited to try out their new Drops of Light range.
