Body Shop Oils of Life: Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil

Facial oils are a staple in my skincare routine. I use them every single night: as my night care in the warmer summer months and layered underneath a cream in autumn and winter. There is just something so luxurious about a decent oil, so you can imagine I jumped at the opportunity to try the new Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil from the Body Shop.

This facial oil is part of the new Oils of Life range and is launched in the Netherlands on September 15th (but I think it is already available in the UK). It comes in a luxurious ombre glass bottle containing 30 ml and will cost €35/£28.

Three seed oils form the base of this product: Black Cumin, Rosehip, and Camellia oil. It has a lovely floral smell with a spicy undertone, so this isn’t overly sweet. Simply use two to three drops and massage into your skin gently. The oil will absorb quickly and is clear, so no need to worry about stains.

The Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil leaves your face feeling soft, no surprises there as it contains my favorite skincare ingredient rosehip oil. The product is 99% natural and it would have been very nice to see the Body Shop going fully green (that last percentage point is a little disappointing). Especially since the product isn’t very cheap and you could easily buy a fully organic rosehip oil for the same price. Still, a great product in lovely packaging that has me wondering about the rest of the Oils of Life collection.


Gezichtsolie is een basisonderdeel van mijn huidverzorgingsroutine. Ik gebruik het elke nacht: als mijn nachtverzorging in de warmere zomermaanden en onder een hydraterende crème in de herfst en winter. Een goede gezichtsolie geeft echt een luxe gevoel, dus je kunt je voorstellen dat ik het heel erg leuk vond om de nieuwe Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil van de Body Shop te proberen.

Deze gezichtsolie is een onderdeel van de nieuwe Oils of Life collectie en word in Nederland op 15 september geïntroduceerd (nog een weekje wachten dus). De olie zit in een mooie ombre glazen flese met 30 ml en gaat €35 kosten.

Drie zaadolien vormen de basis van dit product: zwarte komijn, rozenbottel, en camelia olie. Het heeft een prettige bloemengeur met een kruidige ondertoon, niet te zoet maar net goed. Masseer voorzichtig twee tot drie druppels op je gezicht. De olie word snel opgenomen en is helder, dus je hoeft je geen zorgen te maken over vlekken.

De Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil zorgt voor een zachte huid, geen verrassing want het bevat tenslotte een van mijn favoriete huidverzorgingsingredienten: rozenbottel olie. Dit product is 99% natuurlijk en ik vind het een gemiste kans dat de Body Shop niet voor een compleet natuurlijk product heeft gekozen. Het is tenslotte geen goedkoop product en voor hetzelfde bedrag kun je ook een natuurlijke rozenbottel olie kopen. Toch een goed product in een super verpakking waardoor ik erg benieuwd geworden ben naar de rest van de Oils of Life serie.

    This looks really nice, but I wasn’t keen on the smell (I just really love my Clarins Lotus face oil). I do, however, really want the corresponding metal roller ball application thingy:

    Very technical term. 😛

      I don’t mind the smell, it isn’t really that fragrant a face oil in my opinion. The Clarins version is quite potent and I can imagine you get used to that 🙂
      I haven’t seen the metal roller ball thingy since this collection only launches here next week, but I am intrigued now!

        It’s cool to the touch and massages the oil (or other skincare) into the skin. Very well made too!

          Interesting! I will definitely need to look at that when it launches here.

      Indeed, the entire new range looks very appealing. Prices are a bit steep though: I noticed a new body butter for 25 euro (about 18 GBP). Not sure I would pay full price, but they often have sales 🙂

            Anne ! Trust me this oil is totally changing my skin … It’s that good for someone (like me) who have acne scars, large pores, uneven skin … Ask if you can get a sample 🙂 I’m willing to pay the price because it’s working for me like a charm xxx

            Well I can imagine. Unfortunately there are no counters here (pfff) but I will wander into a Space NK on my next UK trip and get a sample 🙂
            So glad to hear it is working well for you! xxx

        I was using Paula’s Choice Moisture Boost Oil in the winter time, so I would like to find a less expensive facial oil due to the current terrible exchange rate between the Canadian and US dollar.

          Oh yes exchange rates are awful right now (the euro has sunk as well -_-).
          This is really quite nice or try an organic oil by trilogy or antipodes.
