Hi everyone! The Body Shop India recently introduced the Oils of Life Sleeping Cream to their Oils Of Life range and I’ve been testing this out for the past couple of weeks. As a big fan of the Oils of Life range, I was really excited to try out this new addition to the lineup! Price : Rs 2495 for 80 ml.
The Oils Of Life range is a nourishing range of products enriched with 3 beautiful, nutritive oils – black cumin seed oil, rosehip seed oil and camellia oil. The Sleeping Cream, as the name suggests, is a night cream that helps moisturize and rejuvenate the skin overnight. The cream comes in a heavy glass jar packaging and has the same signature amber color as the rest of the Oils Of Life range. The texture of the cream is lovely! It has a bouncy, cushiony, gel-cream consistency that would work beautifully for people with normal to oily/combination skin. I love the herbaceous scent of the cream (its a bit on the stronger side though!), it feels very relaxing and natural. The cream nourishes well, has a non-greasy and pleasant feel and gives a fresh boost to the skin. If you have dry skin though, I’d suggest going for the facial oil from the range instead because this cream is on the lighter side in terms of nourishment and may not provide sufficient moisture for very dry skin.
Those who like essential oils in their skin care would love this as it contains several of them like Lavender, Rosemary, Geranium, Roman Chamomile, Marjoram Leaf, Orange Peel and Lavandin. The combination of these essentials oil and the 3 star precious oils from the range helps in repairing, nourishing and soothing the skin. If you have very sensitive skin though that doesn’t react well to fragrance, I’d steer you away from this range as the essential oils may irritate your skin.
The cream also claims to provide firming benefits but since I don’t have any sagging or wrinkles yet, I’m not sure how well it lives up to the claim. It does contain Sodium Hyaluronate however which is excellent for moisturizing and plumping the skin due to its unique ability to absorb and hold water.
For me, this works as a nice night time moisturizer that’s not too heavy, has a relaxing, natural scent and does a decent job of moisturizing the skin. I haven’t noted any miraculous changes on my facial skin though and if I have to choose just one product from the range, it would be the Facial Oil. I like this cream but the facial oil seemed to work better for me. And I prefer using oils anyway for my evening skin care.
If you prefer lightweight cream/gel textures though, the Oils Of Life Sleeping Cream is a great way to add some precious oils into your skincare regime!
