The Body Shop is one of my favorite destinations for bath and body products. I bought their Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream (which was recommended to me by a friend), and found out that it’s one of their best selling products! I had tried their Vitamin E range earlier, but unfortunately that didn’t go pretty well with my acne prone skin. So I was looking for something more suitable for my skin type, something that I could use every day.
It’s been over three months since I’ve been using this product, and I actually quite like it! The Seaweed Day Cream is originally meant forCombination/Oily skin, which is what my skin type is (as I mentioned earlier in my previous post). The product can also be used for normal skin, as it’s very light on the skin but at the same time it solves the purpose of a moisturizer. We don’t want to look to oily/shiny on a bright summer day, do we? The Seaweed cream has a mattifying effect on the skin, so when you apply it, the skin soaks it up and leaves it looking hydrated.
Tip : After cleansing your face, let your skin be a little damp when applying the moisturizer. This will help your skin soak up the moisturizer better and make your face look well hydrated and fresh. You’ll notice the difference!
The best part about this cream is how light the texture is. My T-zone is a huge concern for me as it goes super oily in summers. The Seaweed cream just mattifies it all! There was a phase when I stopped putting moisturizer at all on my skin, but that ended up opening my pores which led to breakouts and made things worse. After a lot of trying and testing, hits and trials, I realized that It’s extremely important to moisturize your skin, be it dry/oily/normal/combination, and using the right product can actually work wonders for your skin.
