The Body Shop Seaweed Skin Essentials

The Body Shop Seaweed Skin Essentials: £9.99

As a girl with a mixed skin combination I'm always looking for a good product to tackle my oily t-zone, so after reading about The Body Shop Seaweed Range I knew I had to give it a go. I went into my local Body Shop to pick up this set, but it doesn't seem to be available on-line, although all the full size and mini products are.

One thing I personally love about The Body Shop is they have a wide range of mini products so that its easy to test them before buying the full size one. I swapped all products in my skin care routine for these products for a full week to see if there were any differences in my skin.

Firstly, the Mattifying Day Cream, I was using as a prepping product before I applied make-up, and I must say this worked as a good primer for a few hours, but this never really stopped excess oil come lunchtime.

The Deep Cleansing Facial Wash is advertised to remove make-up, impurities and excess oil, leave skin feeling refreshed and give a shine free and matte finish, and I found this product to tick all the boxes! This is the product I was really pleased with, after removing eye-make up you massage this into your skin and wash off with warm water, it removes every single trace of make-up and really leaves your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated. This facial wash really does mattify the skin, but doesn't dry it out. I love love love it and will definitely be repurchasing at the small price of £8!

The Clarifying Toner, after using the facial wash, removes any trace of make-up you may have missed and adds a little bit of moisture back into the skin leaving a healthy and nourished finish.

The Clarifying Night Treatment wasn't my favourite product, I don't feel that it added much to the skin at all, it has a very jelly like texture which leaves the skin feeling slightly sticky after application. This product did feel really irrelevant in a skincare routine. I'd love to try the Mattifying Moisture Lotion as the final product in this skin care routine as its described as giving lightweight moisture and that is definitely what my skin needs!
