So, today's product is focusing on:
Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream
This retails at £9 for 50grams of product and i've had mine for about 5 months now and hardly made a dent in it! This is what the body shop website says about it:
An easily absorbed, non-clogging, oil-free, hydrating gel-like moisture cream. It controls excess sebum and shine whilst delivering essential moisture to areas most in need, balancing the skin throughout the day. Leaves skin feeling fresh, clean, soft and supple with a shinefree, matte complexion.
This definitely has a gel consistency, which I hope you can kinda see in the picture. It goes on really lightly, and I find it's absorbed into the skin almost instantly. It's quite watery in the sense that when you start rubbing it into your skin it dissolves into a more water-based texture and melts into the skin. I think the description is pretty right, it's like a shine control moisturiser/base. I find it gives me just enough moisture, and i've been using it underneath my Witch Tinted Moisturiser* and Witch Primer* and I woke up this morning and looked at my skin and for the first time in about 5 years thought it looked radiant and healthy (minus those bags!). I've had no blemishes since using this, and combined with the Witch primer it helps my make up go on much easier. I've sometimes just used this alone to control shine and then popped some pressed powder on the top for a light coverage.
I use the seaweed range a fair bit from the Body Shop and i'd say it's for oily/combination skin. I think this is what it has on the pot anyway...
I have combination skin and I use quite a few of their ranges, I'd recommend you not to go for the entire range of one type, I think you can mix and match them and get great results. You'll see as I go on to review more products that I use a lot from the Vitamin C range and the Tea Tree aswell as Seaweed.
Overall: The Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream is really easy to use, lasts ages and melts straight into the skin.
Ideal for: Oily/Combination skin.
Best used as: A primer, or shine control moisturiser.
Stay tuned for the next Body Shop posts!
