In that category comes this OILS OF LIFE range. Now what is this all about? The Oils of Life skincare range include 3 precious natural seed oils that claim to nourish and bring back radiance to dull, tired and lifeless looking skin. In this range comes – Intensely Revitalizing Facial Oil, Essence Lotion, Day Cream and a Sleeping Night Cream.
I always wanted to try all the products from this range but never got a chance to pick all of them due to their high prices. Thanks to NYKAA.com which came with 35% off during a sale and i immediately grabed this one from the sale. Nykaa always saves my money. Anyways back to the review.

The packaging of this night cream comes in a sunset orange/amber colored ombre-ed glass jar with a black lid. It has an extra lid/stopper kind of for the product leakage purpose. The packaging looks super luxurious.
The texture of the cream is absolute stunning. It has a shiny/bouncy gel–cream consistency that works beautifully for people with almost all skin types. The cream nourishes and hydrates the skin well. A little quantity goes a long way. It has a non-greasy feel after application. It doesn’t soak in to the skin well. A good massage is required for the product to completely absorb into the skin. It is a light weight gel cream and does not feel any heavy once absorbed completely even on my oily skin.
The cream a mild fragrance of blend of essential oils. Anyways the fragrance bothers only for about half an hour after which it subsides. I absolutely have no issues with the fragrance, I kind of like such soothing and calming fragrances which relaxes my mind when i sleep.
I am using this as my night cream since almost a month now. I take a real good extra amount of product and slather it on my face and neck, and give it a good gentle massage for about a minute or two. It takes time to absorb completely. Since it’s only a night cream, I do not mind in getting it heavy in application for that extra nourished feeling.
I really couldn’t see any reduced signs of aging(coz i never really look out for it), but it definitely does a good job in nourishing the skin whilst asleep. I wake up with a fresh radiant, soft and supple skin the next morning everytime i use this night cream. The day I forget to use it, my skin gets worse the next day. So this sleeping cream has become my favorite night cream and i will definitely continue to use it regularly. This 80ml jar lasts for a really long time though.
