Happy Monday lovelies! Hope you all had a great weekend & are enjoying the bank holiday. Today I'm talking to you about the Body Shop's Seaweed Skincare range. This range was on my wishlist for quite a while before I finally grabbed a few items in their Christmas sale last year.
Seaweed purifying facial cleanser | £8 | Available here
Seaweed clarifying toner | £8 | Available here
Seaweed day cream | £10 | Available here
The seaweed skincare range contains nine products in total & I own three of them: the purifying facial cleanser, the clarifying toner & the day cream. This range is designed for combination skin to control excess oil which is ideal for me. I didn't even know what skin type I was until I used The Body Shop's skincare diagnostic tool (link here). This tool is great; you answer a few questions about your skin & it tells you your skin type & what products from The Body Shop are best suited to you.
As you can see from the pictures, these products are well loved & I'm actually going to have to replace them soon. I use this range for my daily skincare & I absolutely love it! Because the range is called "seaweed" I was honestly convinced that my face was going to smell like a creature from the sea afterwards (yes, I'm stupid) but it actually has a really lovely refreshing scent. One thing I do need to say is when I first used the cleanser & toner I was a bit heavy-handed which made my face sting. This doesn't happen normally (unless I'm in a hurry & just shove it into my face) but is just something to keep in mind as I actually thought I was allergic to it the first time I used it.
I used the cleanser & toner to remove any excess makeup & they're really lovely & refreshing. I think the day cream is possibly my favourite product from the range. Because my skin is oily/combination I always feel like moisturisers just make my skin really greasy & oily. However, this cream just skins into the skin & mattifys it without drying it out, making it feel really silky & smooth. This is a great moisturiser but if your skin has dry patches then I'm not sure how effective it would be on those areas.
Overall, I absolutely love these products & they are a definite repurchase for me! They really do keep my skin clear & keep blemishes to a minimum when I'm strict about using them (yes I'm lazy with skincare sometimes, sue me). I'm happy with every product I've tried but I'm also on the lookout for a moisturiser which is a bit more heavy duty if I'm having dry skin days, so any recommendations would be fab.
Have you tried any skincare products from The Body Shop? What do you think?
