I'm not a sucker for a free sample usually. Got a wee packet of this in a mag the other day and the difference it has made to my skin is amazing! Really smooth, dewy and best of all, my killer eye bags are reduced and much less dark. Just ordered a pot off Amazon. Thought I'd share.

<baaa> said the sheep as she ran to Amazon clutching credit card.

Thank you! Always on the look out for new skincare to try!

It is the cream, btw, not the oil itself that I've used.

I hadn't used anything from the Body shop in years but I came across a recommendation for the hemp face cream and the overnight aloe mask. Both are absolutely fantastic. I have used expensive products and these are by far, much better!

I will have a look at the oil! Thank you!

Which one? There are a few different products.

The chamomile cleansing butter is also the nicest cleanser I've ever used. Including Elemis, Chanel and all the other £££££££s ones.

Oooh I've just got some of this in my Glossybox (so to speak). Off to try it now.

I am dismayed to hear this as I am boycotting my local branch of Body Shop after they were rude to me.

TulipStream Wed 13-Apr-16 10:46:28

MamaLazarou - you could always just order online - plus online always has a discount of either 30 or 40% off !

I'm doing a little online BS shop today so will add some of this stuff in.

I'm imagining 'OILS OF LIFE' being boomed in a Brian Blessed style voice.

I always think it sounds like a pseudo-religious text, squoosh

'Rub some of Oils of Life on your chest and wash away all your sins'

Nabootique Wed 13-Apr-16 12:27:13

^^ In a Brian Blessed voice, of course!

I went to a bodyshop party last week funnily enough. I only went because I felt bad for declining the invite from my lovely neighbour.

But am very pleased with the bb cream I bought and some eyeshadow. DD bought some nice shower gel and some colour cubes and lip/cheek stain stuff and she is pleased too.

Am almost out of moisturising lotion so me have a look what they do.

froubylou Wed 13-Apr-16 12:31:38

Might have a look, not me have a look. Fuck sake.

The Brian Blessed pic has just absolutely sold this to me. He could sell me anything. Body Shop missed a trick there.

TheCraicDealer Wed 13-Apr-16 13:35:01

They tried to flog me the serum last time I was in looking the Vitamin E stuff but I heard the price and was like, "ehhhhhhhhhhh, see how I get on with this --product which is ten pounds cheaper--". Might give it a go when aforementioned serum is done!

The website suggests you use it with this massage which looks like a sex toy. I'm sorry but I'm not rubbing my face with something that looks like a cock and balls.

squoosh Wed 13-Apr-16 13:37:39

I've no problem with (select) cock and balls being near my face. So I'd have no qualms about using a plastic lookalike!

squoosh Wed 13-Apr-16 13:41:11

Sometimes I feel I share too much on MN.

This is what thoughts of Brian Blessed can do to a gal......

botemp Wed 13-Apr-16 13:42:01

I own the twin-ball massager if that's too work as a sex toy... hmmm... it is very very small. Nice massager though, the box it came in (had a foam insert with silhouette) looks more rude than the thing itself in all honesty.

Since there's like three oils of life creams/gels, which one is it specifically?

peachypips Wed 13-Apr-16 13:44:06

Does it cause breakouts?

ihatethecold Wed 13-Apr-16 13:55:58

How much is it?

MooMinCow Wed 13-Apr-16 16:10:57

Cream is £25. You won't be able to get any discounts on it though as it's classified as 'new product range'. BUT, tomorrow and Friday is 30% off for loyalty card holders (free to join) and you also get a freebie bundle of product if you spend £25 (after discount)

I'm gradually drifting back to the Body Shop, I've used their hemp hand cream for years and recently discovered the rainforest shampoo & conditioner.
