Beauty : The Body Shop Seaweed Range – A Skin Refresher You May Need

THE BODY SHOP SEAWEED DEEP CLEANSING GEL WASH REVIEW

During the season changes, my skin does this thing where it’d switch from normal skin to complete oily and/or combination skin. This makes me so stressed because as I break out more and more, my skin becomes duller and this means I have to switch up my skin care routine and diet too.

The Body Shop Seaweed range has come to my rescue in these times. After two years of product use, I think it’s time to finally put up a review in this post.

Seaweed is renowned for its conditioning and hydrating benefits, while its non-oily nature makes it particularly suitable for normal to oily skin. Leaves the skin feeling fresh, clean, soft and supple with a shine-free, matte complexion.



DESCRIPTION :

GEL CLEANSER :

It cleanses your skin whilst re balancing moisture levels, Oil-free and soap-free, this face wash will effectively remove impurities, leaving a shine-free matte finish.

  • Suitable for combination/ oily skin

The gel is transparent and not too thick. It is runny, like water. You need to be careful when you pour it because of the consistency or you might pour more than you need.

USAGE:

First, I wet my face and then pour a small amount of gel cleanser in my palm, I rub the product in between my palms to create a small lather and then apply it on my face. I go in small circles, gently cleansing every side of my face, but avoiding the eye areas. I gently rinse off with lukewarm-cold water and wipe off with a towel afterwards.

After using the gel cleanser, I wet a cotton pad with the oil balancing toner and wipe my face in circular motions, carefully avoiding the eye areas.

I use these products in the morning and night or either.

After I use these products, my face is left feeling cool and refreshed. I also love that I feel more awake when I use it in the morning. The face-wash does not over-dry my skin, and neither does the toner.

Final Verdict :

As far as acne control is concerned, this range doesn’t contribute much to reduce them. There is no guarantee that your pimples will disappear after using this range. So during my pimple breakouts, I switch to other, effective acne face washes. However otherwise on usual days, this is my go to face-wash at this point.

The Pros include :

  1. Cooling effect on the skin
  2. Removes any oil as well as dirt (cleanser and toner)
  3. Soap-free.
  4. Oil-free.
  5. Has a soothing fragrance

The Cons include :

  1. Runny texture (gel cleanser)
  2. Does not help acne prone skin.
  3. Toner could be a bit harsh sometimes.

RATING : 7.5 / 10
