Lately, I've noticed that my bathroom is slowly being filled with The Body Shop beauty products. And when I traced why this is, I realized that I am now living with my husband! He's always been a fan of The Body Shop even when I first met him. He appreciates the affordability and quality of products of the brand.

Just this week, The Body Shop has launched two product lines that has enticed me to fill my bathroom with just more of their products. The Oils of Life skincare line for the face features 3 precious seed oils that have been infused in highly-sensorial textures to bring new life into the skin, while the Spa of the World consists of bath and massage ritual products infused with the finest natural ingredients, refined textures and delicate fragrances that promises to bring the body and mind on an ultimate sensory spa journey.

First, let's look into the Oils of Life.


Intensely Revitalizing Facial Oil | P2,395.00

With a powerful blend of essential oils, this daily facial oil made from 99% oils of natural origin promises to visibly reduce signs of ageing.

I applied 1-2 drops onto face and neck and gently massaged it into my face, avoiding the eye area. Instantly, I felt my skin replenished with moisture and its radiance revived. It's lightweight and was quickly absorbed by my skin skin, leaving a non-sticky, velvety-soft finish.You can also opt to add a drop of this facial oil to your daily cream.

Intensely Revitalizing Facial Cream | P1,695.00

This silky cream with perfecting micro-pearls was made to add radiance while moisturizing the skin. It basically does the same thing as the oil, only that this is a heavier formula and is better suited for those with dry skin and for colder climates.

From the moment it touched my skin, the cream effortlessly melted onto my face, leaving a light and comfortable finish without a greasy feel. A pea-sized amount is just enough for the face. Massage gently on face and neck in an upward motion.

Intensely Revitalising Essence Lotion | P1295.00

This unique bi-phase [oil + water] formula is the essential first step after cleansing to prepare and activate skin for the next steps in the Oils of Life skincare routine.

Moving on, The Body Shop's Spa of the World uplifting body rituals...


The Body Shop has three suggested rituals and a wie range of products with different scents. The one demonstrated and done to us at the event is the relaxing ritual, which consists of the following steps:


The Relaxing Ritual being done to Earth

The Relaxing Ritual is for when you're feeling tense and anxious. This ritual is a perfect way to de-stress, unwind and reconnect with body and mind.

African Ximenia Scrub | P1950.00

Handpicked in Namibia from the ‘Tree of Life’, the ximenia fruit seed yields a luxuriously rich oil, leaving skin feeling smoother and softer.

Himalayan Charcoal Body Clay | P1395.00

Charcoal powder is an ancient Asian beauty secret proven to draw out impurities from the skin, up to thousands of times its own mass. It has traditionally been used to draw out tensions from the mind too, de-stressing and calming.

Japanese Camellia Cream | P2350.00

Camellia oil has been used by Japanese women since the 8th century to gently soften and moisturise skin. The exquisite scent of this pure and elegant flower allows mind and body to reconnect with a moment of profound peace.

French Lavender Massage Oil | P1195.00

In the 14th century, King Charles VI of France demanded pillows filled with lavender to soothe him to sleep. Lavender essential oil has a natural relaxing scent which promotes a sense of well-being.
