So, recently Body Shop revealed their new line of skin care - Oils of Life. Obviously, I just had to try! I tried the Intensely Revitalising Cream and now I'm through to my second pot. The new Oils of Life collection oozes luxury, the fragrance, the feel and the packaging. A rebranding that works completely in their favour. The products from this collection are at a much higher price point than usual but the intensity and quality of these products is incredible.

The intensely revitalising cream (£25) contains three seed oils to nourish and soften the skin; Black Cumin, Camellia and Rosehip. It's a beautifully rich yet non-greasy formula which is easily absorbed by the skin! I found that because of it's non-greasy formula my make-up glided on a lot easier than usual. Being someone who suffers with ridiculously dehydrated skin, this has been a life saver. I use it day and night. For those who have oiler skin types - it is also available in a gel formula.

Whilst on my recent trip to Body Shop I picked up their essence lotion (£15) to. I'm all for lotions and potions and anything else that is going to make my skin feel nourished. This bi-phase lotion made from oils and water contains the three important oils I named above. You use this after cleanser, toner but before any serums and moisturisers. Since using this product my skin feels a lot softer, a lot less tight too. Once again, I'm using this morning and night. It smells incredible too.

Another thing that I absolutely love about this range is that it hasn't upset my skin. I suffer with extremely sensitive skin and eczema so I'm always dubious about trying new skin case because usually a change is followed by a huge breakout. This time...? My skin looked clearer than ever. No redness, no extra blemishes, no itching, no dryness. Yay. Finally a yummy smelling skincare product that everyone with sensitive skin can use.

After being utterly impressed by the improvement of my skin after using the revitalising cream, I'm excited to see what the essence lotion does!
