If you have oily/combination skin, i couldn’t recommend The Body Shop Seaweed collection enough. I picked up this travel size kit when i attended the Body Shop detox beauty event at the Birmingham Bullring store (click here to see the article). While at the beauty event, i had a mini facial using The Body Shop seaweed collection and thought i would try it out for myself to see how it works on my oily/combination skin.
Before using the seaweed range, i used to get the common oily t-zone during the day and forever had to keep blotting down my forehead and nose with powder to hide the shine. The seaweed collection has made that stop completely. The travel size kit includes four products to achieve that mattified look to the skin.
The Body Shop Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash
This refreshing gel is oil-free and effectively cleanses the face. It also helps rebalance moisture and sebum levels as it cleanses. The scent is fresh and lightly aquatic and you would expect this from the title of the range. I only use a small amount and it foams up nicely allowing you to remove make-up and skin impurities with ease.
The Body Shop Seaweed Toner
The alcohol free seaweed toner helps to rebalance oily/combination skin. To be honest, I’m not a big fan of using toner and skip using it because i find it does not really do much for my skin. I would say using the seaweed toner is good for making sure you have removed all scraps of make-up and dirt.
The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream
A very light daytime moisturiser that leaves the skin mattified and is a perfect base for your make-up. I love applying the cream because it sinks into the skin nicely and leaves it feeling hydrated; i personally apply in the morning and before going to bed. I really cannot recommend the Seaweed mattifying day cream enough as i feel it has made me say goodbye to the oily t-zone areas i used to get during the day and it keeps my skin well balanced.
The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment
This is my favourite product out of the whole seaweed range. It’s a light serum that mattifies the skin and is most definitely my answer to treating my oily/combination skin. A good tip i have learnt is before i apply my make-up i put a small amount of the night treatment onto my forehead and nose to make sure these areas are extra mattified before applying my foundation to have a shine free face for the entire day. I also use the night treatment in the evening after using the daytime cream.
I think is an amazing price at £10.00 if you want to sample before buying the normal sizes. It also allows you to try the products and see if they work for you at a reasonable cost. Take a look at The Body Shop Seaweed range of their website.
If you have oily/combination skin and are looking for something to help calm down that oily t-zone and also give lovely hydration, please try out this range! It has really changed my skin for the better – I feel so much more confident not having the worry about getting an oily t-zone during the day and i do not have to touch up my powder to hide the oily areas anymore.
I hope you enjoyed my post about The Body Shop Seaweed collection, until next time…
