I am fortunate to receive some products from The Body Shop.

I took this picture from my Instagram. For this post, I will review the eye cream on the bottom.
Product Review: The Body Shop Oils of Life Intensely Revitalising Eye Cream-Gel

Where to purchase: ULTA, The Body Shop, and online at thebodyshop.com
Price: $32 for 20 mL/ 0.69 oz (19.8 g)

Made in France

Description from the package: We searched the world and selected 3 precious seed oils known for their supreme revitalizing and repairing properties on skin:
* Black cumin oil from Egypt, known for its concentration in antioxidants
* Rosehip oil from Chile, rich in repairing Omega 3 and 6
* Camellia oil from China, naturally rich in nutritive oleic acid

By infusing them into a refreshing, lightweight yet comfortable texture, we created a daily eye cream-gel that intensely revitalizes the eye contour and visibly reduces signs of ageing.

Instantly: eye contour feels nurtured and is left as smooth as velvet.
After 2 weeks: dark circles look visibly faded, bags appear depuffed and eye contour looks more radiant.
Day after day: signs of ageing around the eyes appear reduced - lines, wrinkles and eyelid creepiness appear smoothed out, suppleness around the eyes feels restored. Eyes look more open, full of life, visibly revitalized.

This intensely Revitalising Eye Cream-Gel feels fresh upon application and effortlessly melts onto skin leaving a light, non-sticky finish.

Thoughts: I actually received this product beginning of this year. I kept telling myself I will use this product after I finish the current eye cream. I was being stubborn because the jar of the eye cream I was using hardly made a dent. So for that reason, I just decided to use this eye cream before I go back to the eye cream I was using.
Here's a closer look inside the jar.
Here's a swatch of the eye cream on my hand.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, there's no noticeable scent while applying. I just sniffed the product and it has a light, floral scent. It smells really good and refreshing. Secondly, the packaging is small and adorable. I like the color and design. It's well-made and sturdy. It's made out of firm glass. The top is also sturdy. I can feel a tight seal when I open/close the top. I cannot see it open or break unless you are rough with the packaging. For that reason, it's travel-friendly. It's also small enough to throw in your purse and bag. Third, the consistency is a light gel. It doesn't look or feel like a cream to me. With that said, it's easy to use. I take a little amount and pat it around the eyes, smile line, in-between the brows, and forehead. I know it sounds weird to apply around the smile lines, in-between the brows, and forehead but I started doing that when I saw a Korean makeup artist doing it. She told me since eye creams have a heavier ingredients to help/prevent the wrinkles, why not apply it in areas that ages faster. I have to agree it made sense. Ever since then, I applied in those areas. It's light-weight and extremely refreshing. It has a cooling sensation not in the tingling feel but it just feels cool on the skin. My skin absorbs this gel quickly and leaves a nice, smooth texture. Also, it's not sticky at all. Lastly, it's hydrating. I didn't see any dry patches. When the skin is hydrated, I notice less fine/thick lines. With that said, this eye gel is good for normal to oily skin individuals. For dry skin like myself, it's good during spring/summer season. Since it's winter time and the air is dry, I noticed it doesn't help in-between the brows and forehead. For the eyes, it works well. When it comes to dark circles, I cannot say much. I don't really have a bad dark circle to start with. I'm glad I got to try this product. It's a good one but I think it'll be better for normal to oily skin individuals, as well as, for sensitive skin. It's gentle.

* No noticeable scent while applying.
* Small, adorable packaging.
* Nice color and design on the packaging.
* Well-made and sturdy.
* Top is also sturdy; feel a tight seal when you open/close.
* Travel-friendly.
* Gel consistency.
* Easy to use.
* Light-weight.
* Refreshing.
* Absorbs quickly.
* Leaves a nice, smooth texture.
* Not sticky.

* Less noticeable fine/thick lines.
* Great for normal to oily skin individuals.

* Not hydrating on my dry skin during this dry, winter season.

Would repurchase: Yes.
