The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE™ INTENSELY REVITALIZING SLEEPING CREAM is a part of their OILS of LIFE Range that also includes a facial oil and a gel cream for daytime use. 30s can be a very tricky stage of life, especially for the skin that undergoes a lot of changes. Add to it the everyday stress, exposure to dirt, dust, pollution and the constant radiation from working on laptops and computers, I was left with skin that looked quite dull and drab and was losing all of its glow. I was on the lookout for a new night cream to try and after much deliberation, picked up The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE™ INTENSELY REVITALIZING SLEEPING CREAM from my nearest Lifestyle Store. I have been using this cream for more than a month now and hence thought its about time I shared my opinion on the same.
The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE™ INTENSELY REVITALIZING SLEEPING CREAM comes in a heavy glass jar with a screw on lid and a separator to prevent the product from leaking. I am seriously flabbergasted at how a brand like THE BODY SHOP has managed to miss one fine packaging detail in all of these years. Why is the mouth of the product not sealed? Its the same with all of their creams, and also the body butter tubs and sometimes the insides are just so messy that it gets me grossed out and many a times I have kept a product back on the shelf even if I intended to purchase it. I wish The Body Shop India team looks into the matter and comes up with sealed containers for every product. That apart, owing to the heaviness and fragility of the glass jar, I don’t think it’s a very travel friendly packaging. Although, I admit I have travelled with this is in a train as well as an airplane, but all throughout the journey I was worried about the glass jar shattering up!
The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE™ INTENSELY REVITALIZING SLEEPING CREAM has a soft and bouncy gel-creme like texture with a strong scent. It spreads easily on the skin owing to the presence of silicones in the formula, but still needs a bit of effort to get absorbed. Even after completely massaging the cream into the skin, I do feel a slight residue remains on the skin. There is also a slightly greasy feeling that remains that felt uncomfortable to me in the initial days but now I am used to it. Also, some people may be allergic to silicones in their beauty products so do keep that in consideration before you choose to buy the full size jar of this product.
Effects after using the product for more than 1 month:
After continuously using The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE™ INTENSELY REVITALIZING SLEEPING CREAM for more than a month now, I can definitely see myself nodding in agreement to most of the claims that the brand makes. Immediately after the 3rd or 4th day of using this cream, I did notice how my skin felt supple and looked radiant every morning. I could just see the product working its way through. From the 2nd week onwards, I did see my skin getting back a soft glow especially on the apples of the cheeks and the fine lines around my eyes did appear a little blurred out. However, I do wish the formula also worked on acne scars which exist in abundance on the cheek and chin area. But The Oils of Life Range never claims to be meant for scars/pigmentation so it’s okay by me.
Overall, I do feel that The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE™ INTENSELY REVITALIZING SLEEPING CREAM is a great product to invest in if you are targeting skin conditions like loss of hydration/moisture and are looking for something that will take away the dryness and give you back some glow. The Body Shop OILS OF LIFE™ INTENSELY REVITALIZING SLEEPING CREAM gives you softer, smoother and firmer skin within a few weeks of usage and is definitely something that you can use a lot in your late twenties or the early thirties when your skin undergoes a lot of change. This sleeping cream does deliver all that it claims and that is why I would highly recommend it to everyone. It is definitely a little pricey, but considering how much I have used up in a month, I can easily say that the 80 ml jar will last me a minimum of 3-4 months, so it’s worth the money.
