The Body Shop seaweed skin care range



I've touched briefly on this range before but the Seaweed skin care range for oily/combination skin from The Body Shop is one of my all time favourites. I have stated several times that I think TBS is very hit or miss with their products, but for me this range is a complete hit. I had tried the Tea Tree range for 'spot-prone' skin (which is the kind of description I'm drawn to) but the toner made me break out. (Whattt?)

Seaweed Mattifying Lotion SPF 15

I was first given this as a present for my 20th birthday and I have been re-purchasing it ever since. It first landed itself on my birthday wishlist because I had read even in this country we should be using SPF (the small scar on my right cheek is now virtually invisible after I took this advice) but finding an SPF moisturiser that also worked on oily skin (and then add my later lifestyle change to cruelty-free into the mix) was proving difficult. It's very light so I'm putting it aside until the winter months are over, but I'll definitely be revisiting when March roles back in.

Seaweed Clarifying Toner

I'll admit, I'm not a big toner person. Having never really noticed a big different between using one and not using one, I've went periods without owning one. But I've heard they're important so I pick one up on occasion. This product hasn't made my skin break out and my skin looks roughly the same but what I have loved using this for is removing make-up. If I have a full on night face then I require something stronger but for the quick removal of my work make-up this does just nicely.

Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask

I currently have three facemasks in rotation (this, Cupcake from Lush and the FC5 mask from Arbonne) and this is the one I use when my skin needs to get told and I have a range of spots that need controlled. It dries very quickly and into a hard clay, so is over quickly. Be prepared to use a thick moisturiser afterwards though!

Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment

I've played with the idea of using a night cream for some time but given how oily my skin is naturally I don't think it would do much for me. And all this oil will pay off when I'm 50 and look 35 so wrinkles aren't in my skin time worries book. This product however hits a better checklist for me. It provides a product to help my skin during the time when my skin will naturally rejuvenate itself but instead of adding moisture to fight wrinkles it balances my skin to fight spots. I wake up with soft skin, but not in an oily way, just soft. And it doesn't have that 'wash-off' feel that some night treatments have.

  1. Thank you for this review, I'm gonna try SPF lotion. I thought it is no good cos I had some pore serum from the same line and it did absolutely nothing for me.
