Don't you sometimes (always) wish you can hit the spa up every day you're feeling particularly icky or stressed, or just in need of a good facial or scrubbing? I know I do, all the time. Cue the Oils of Life collection, one that's sold, and already loved, because of the the different oils in it. The products contain 3 precious seed oils; Black Cumin oil from Egypt, Camellia oil from China, and Rosehip oil from Chile. Just the mixture of the oils sounds soothing, doesn't it? Not only that, but the packaging exudes spa vibes with a warm gold and amber color. From this range, I tried out the Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil, and Intensely Revitalising Gel Cream, putting them to the test for a month. I've heard claims of women trying out the range and seeing a change the very next morning, let me just clarify, that is absolute bullshit! I did, however, see a change two weeks in, the exact duration promised.
The Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Facial Oil is promoted to have "99% oils of natural origin" which effortlessly melt into your complexion, and indeed, this product contains the three oils it boasts, in addition to other plant oils such as Fruit oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) and Olea Europaea (Olive). The scent of the product was a mix of all those oils, a warm and soothing combination, which makes it my favorite final step for my bed time routine. Make sure you don't go overboard since it's an oil-based product, the instructions specifically mention 1-2 drops can generously cover the whole face, so stick to that! I played smart ass and applied a little over 3 drops once and woke up with the shiniest and oiliest T Zone you can envision. In my opinion, it doesn't matter whether you have dry or oily skin, I have combination and my skin wasn't negatively affected whatsoever as long as I stuck to the amount applied.
Moving on to the Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Gel Cream, a non-greasy and lighter alternative to the cream formula which hydrates and nourishes. Again, the three hero oils are the base of this product, alongside the olive and fruit oils. The product actually looks and feels like a mix of cream and gel, and is light enough for me to leave the house in. Unlike the oil however, you can't forget that you've put this product on, meaning it leaves a little coat on the face, which would eventually be required to wash off. The gel has a scent that is different from the oil, a tangy rose combination, nevertheless, it leaves one with spa vibes and definitely helps getting in the zone while you unwind at the end of the day.
Two weeks into combining the gel and cream, with minimal usage of other products, my face stopped the peeling phase it was going through. Basically, My face has gotten really dry and weird ever since I changed climates three times back to back (hello summer!) and even two facials at a spa haven't saved me.
All in all, in terms of nourishment and hydration, I'll say these babies are definitely an A!
Best aspect: spa vibes, hydration and nourishment
The downside: be exact with measurements, or the oil shall curse you
