Gifted to review
Regular readers to my blog know I’m all about self care and love natural brands that help to promote it.
THE BODY SOURCE is a company dedicated to creating health inspired products designed to enrich your mind, body and soul. The founder Joshua Stevens worked long hours but was never fulfilled and started The Body Source as a way of providing others with natural purposefully designed products to enrich your physical health, mental state and overall wellbeing.
Each of the products available have been carefully tested to the highest standard and the company don’t just sell beauty products such as natural oils ( Coconut Oil, Argan Oil, Prickly Pear Seed Oil) they also sell calming products like Himalayan Salt Lamps and Aroma Diffusers. The brand believe that products designed to increase your mental and physical wellbeing are an investment to your quality of life and longevity. Everything the brand sell is 100% natural, cruelty free and ethically sourced. 
So I have been kindly gifted the PRICKLY PEAR SEED OIL  from the brand to try out. Now I’m not going to lie I didn’t know much about the product but thought it sounded like something that I would love to try and quite exciting at the same time. 
Prickly Pear Seed Oil is known as Morocco’s best kept secret. It also goes by the other names of Cactus Seed Oil and Barbary Fig Seed Oil, Prickly Pear Seed Oil is one of the finest oils available for use on the skin and hair.
The Prickly Pear Seed Oil from The body Source is 100% Pure and Organic. The product is cold pressed in Morocco and comes packaged in a glass bottle with a pipette dropper. 
So why use Prickly Pear Seed Oil? 
Prickly Pear Seed Oil contains more Vitamin E and Linoleic Acid than Argan Oil but in a lighter more absorbent oil. This makes it perfect to use on your skin
As Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that can help against anti ageing. It also helps to repair and protect your skin against free radicals from everyday life. 
The Linoleic Acid in the product helps to moisturises dry skin, it also smooths any fine lines and wrinkles whilst remaining a powerful antioxidant. These properties act to protect, hydrate and nourish the skin preventing wrinkles and stimulate new cell growth. Each 30ml bottle requires 300kg of cactus fruit, that has been ethically sourced in Morocco. This is why it’s so rich in nutrients and so amazing for our skin. 
So I’ve been using this amazing product for a couple of weeks now and really wanted to share with you how I got on. 
The Prickly Pear Seed Oil comes in a 30ml droplet bottle. The outer cardboard packaging is super cute with a little picture of a cactus on the front. The actual product itself is a brown smooth liquid and a couple of drops is enough to do my whole face. I love the fact that a little goes a long way. I also love the fact that the product is not too greasy and doesn’t leave a sticky residue in your face. This makes it so comfortable to use and completely different to a lot of oils I’ve tried in the past. 
The product can be used alone or can be mixed with a moisturiser or serum, it’s completely up to you. I tried it both ways. I found I enjoyed it better mixed with a moisturiser in the morning (before makeup!) and in the evening as a stand alone product. 
I love the idea of this being a natural anti ageing product and feels like you are really putting something good onto your skin without any harsh chemicals. It can also help other skin problems like ache so it’s definitely worth a try if that’s your skin concern. I have even tried a few drops in my hair and this I find leaves your hair feeling super soft. Even though it’s still early days I can’t wait to see how my skin benefits from using this products daily as my skin has really improved after a couple of weeks. It already feels super soft, hydrated and a lot clearer than it has done for months.
