I have often banged my gums about The Body Shop Seaweed range
but never took the time to sit down and share my thoughts on the collection.
As I have just bought a mini travel kit I thought now would be the best time to share my thoughts
so I can share shiny new bottle rather than my full size half used and abused bottles!

If you have oily/combination skin I really can not recommend the range enough,
I can honestly say that if I wasn't a beauty blogger and forever on the look out for the next best thing
then this would be my to go to skin care routine.
When my skin flares up or goes through an extra oily phase then this is what I reach for
and if you travel a lot and hate filling up bottles to pack in your case head to The Body Shop
where you can pick up a little dinky kit full of Seaweed products for £10!

The Body Shop Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash
This is a light gel product that is soap and oil free yet effectively cleanses the face without 
stripping it of moisture yet helps to control excess oil production.
It has a light fresh aquatic scent which is to be expected from a product with Seaweed in the title,
it foams lightly but makes light work of make-up removal - I have to be truthful and say I have not tested it
on or near my eye area.

The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream
A light almost serum like product that gives oily skin a light dose of hydration
yet mattifies the skin and does not overwhelm it with moisture.
I love applying this before make-up application as it leaves a great matte base
and helps prevent excess oil production throughout the day.
If you need a light moisturiser that mattifies I can not recommend this enough.

The Body Shop Seaweed Toner 
This is the one product in the range I don't really tend to re-purchase,
it's a nice enough toner and great for on the go but other than helping to ensure you have 
removed every scrap of make-up/dirt I don't really find it all that effective.
It claims to to minimise pores and control excess oil but I don't truthfully find either claim to be true.

The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment
This is the answer to every oily skinned gals night cream prayers,
most night creams are thick and too heavy for oily skin and for that reason alone I tend to skip them
in favour of a normal moisturiser but this light serum helps to balance the skin, reduce oil
yet add a light dose of hydration while you sleep.
It does exactly what it says on the tin and is great particularly in the summer when weather can be
a little balmy - a holiday must have!

The Body Shop Seaweed Pore Perfector
This is almost like a primer in the sense that it mattifies the skin and reduces the appearance of enlarged pores without using silicones, it can be used on it's own as a light serum like product or as a base to
apply make-up on top of - not only does it reduce the size of my pores in appearance but it also
helps to prevent and heal existing blemishes which more often than not come with oily skin!

All items mentioned above are available in mini and full size versions with prices starting at £3,
you can find them in all Body Shop stores or via their web store - link
