The Body Shop Oils of Life Essence Lotion

So, essence lotions are a product I have never really taken an interest in. I thought that it was a bit of an unnecessary step and maybe even a bit.. Gimmicky? Last week, I wrote a post about The Body Shop Oils of Life Facial Oil*, which I love. After a while of debating whether to buy the matching Oils of Life Essence Lotion, I finally caved and walked away with it (and the facial massager, too!) deciding to put it to the test.

So, for any of you wondering what an essence lotion is exactly, let me explain quickly. An essence lotion is meant to add an extra, micro fine, layer of moisture to the skin. It's all about layering and building moisture in the skin with essence lotions. You apply it after cleansing but before your serum. Essence lotions also prep the skin nicely for anything you then want to layer on top as they can make the skin more receptive. They're usually light, smell nice, add hydration and plump. Sounds great, right?

So, I'll just start of by saying I love this. This it the first essence lotion  have tried and it has instantly become a staple in my routine. This makes my skin feel great. Like the Oils of Life Facial Oil it is so hydrating but incredibly light on the skin. I just take some on a cotton pad and sweep it all over my skin. I then, still using the pad, press and pat it onto my skin, to really work it in. I do this all over, focusing mainly on my cheeks, which get particularly dehydrated.

If dehydration is a main skin concern for you, you need this. My skin is oily but also dehydrated, so I need something that is going to help to provide hydration to my skin without being heavy and this does just that. It is so light and comfortable on the skin. It is a bi-phase liquid but you can not feel any oil or residue after you've applied it. The hydration this provides is amazing! For something so light, it provides so much hydration to the skin that you instantly feel the difference. It is almost like a liquid moisturiser! My skin always feels so plump and supple after I use this, it completely eliminates any signs/feeling of dehydration.
I love using this with the Oils of Life facial oil. The two together work so well. The essence lotion really preps the skin, making the oil penetrate even quicker. I can really tell a difference when I use the two together!

Like the rest of the Oils of Life range from The Body Shop, it contains the 3 cold pressed seed oils; rosehip oil, black cumin seed oil and camellia seed oil.
