The Body Shop Spa of the World French Lavender Massage Oil
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. Use this calming massage oil as part of our relaxing ritual when you’re in need of a fast-track to tranquillity
The Body Shop always brings out beautiful products with every new launch but they’ve truly outdone themselves with their latest launch, Spa of the World. In a luxurious collection comprising of refined body scrubs, purifying and firming clays, velvety body creams and delicately fragranced oils, the Spa of the World range brings the sensory experience of a spa right to your home.
Ancient beauty rituals from around the world have been curated together into 3 rituals: the Relaxing Rituals (comprising 5 products), the Revitalising Ritual and the Blissful Ritual (comprising 3 products each). The Body Shop India generously sent me the Relaxing Ritual as well as the body oil from the Revitalising Ritual which I’m reviewing for you today.
The Body Shop Spa of the World – French Lavender Massage Oil (Rs 1695 for 170 ml)
My favourite products from this collection are the massage oils. I love body oils and The Body Shop does fantastic body oils that have the right intensity of fragrance and a wonderful dry oil lightness. The French Lavender oil smells exactly like lavender and instantly soothes and relaxes the senses. I like to rub a few drops of this on damp skin after a shower and it quickly absorbs in without any greasy after-feel. The scent is not overpowering and lingers no longer than two hours which is perfect. Even when I’m not doing the whole spa ritual, I like to use this, especially before bedtime for instant relaxation!
Focusing on tense areas, massage onto skin to help relax body and mind. Try using the Spa of the World Thai Wooden Massager to enhance the experience. Expert tip: “Bring this product when you travel, it can work as a body moisturiser and the lavender scent will help you relax before you sleep.” – Vanda Serrador, Facialist and Body Care Expert for The Body Shop.
Beautiful massage oil, perfect for a cheeky back massage before bed. The lavender smell is so relaxing and smells like you’re lying in a lavender field of happiness. Stays oily for quite a while,
There is nothing more relaxing than a massage before bedtime, especially with the lavender scent to get you off to sleep. The scent is quite strong but it smells divine. The moisture locks into the skin very well. I would definitely buy it again, it is a little pricey but worth the money!
