ILA SPA Body Oil for Vital Energy
Can a product have a “beautiful label”? ILA Spa’s Body Oil for Vital Energy does.
One of our best finds of the month by far is this golden Vital Energy oil (in the tall yellow box, fourth from the right) which deserves a “10” for its reviving scent and extra marks for it being easy for skin to drink in. (There’s a reason for this – argan and rosehip seed oil are “dry” oils which do not sit on top of skin so if you can’t bear oils that linger for a while on the surface, you’ll really love this one).
Founded by Denise Leicester (a qualified nurse, yoga teacher and yogic healer), ILA Spa’s formulas have a deep connection with nature as a source of real wellness; in fact Denise ensures the brand only uses the finest natural plants and minerals, wild-harvested in remote untainted regions by artisan producers who value traditional, sustainable practices. A quick side-note here, if you’re looking for a protect-against-winter-elements facial oil, ILA’s Face Oil for Glowing Radiance with Rosehip Seed Oil, Rose Otto,Wild-grown Argan Oil and Vitamin E does just that – we tried is last year and it’s the skincare equivalent of a cashmere blanket… plus it’s packed with antioxidants and fatty acids.
…but back to the new find:
ILA Spa says: “This oil supports against the stresses and strains of everyday life, infusing the body with vital energy. As your senses respond to the exquisite scents, the easily absorbed oil gets to work nourishing the skin and circulation. Spirits feel lifted and the body, instantly recharged.”
We say: “Prepare to become deeply attached. Bright, re-energising and a real mood boost, this citrus-scented Body Oil for Vital Energy reminds us of those perfect summer Saturday mornings when you wake up, pull a T-shirt on, the sun is shining – and it’s easy to get out of bed.”
