The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream Review

The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream Review

Ever since I became pregnant, I had to chuck all my skincare products as I was facing horrible acne issues and the scars refused to fade for a long time. Thankfully, God showed some mercy and in the second trimester, gradually my skin turned better. I then realized that I had completely forgotten to even moisturize my skin. Though in Chennai weather, your skin rarely goes to the drier side, most of us here are blessed with combi/oily skin. I wanted something that would not make my skin greasy further and effectively moisturize. Bingo! I found what I wanted.

Price: 895.  Pretty expensive for a mattifier but at the moment, it has been doing wonders for me so no qualms.

Packaging: It comes in a small rounded tub which I do not like as I have to put my fingers in it everytime to take the cream out. Not very travel friendly.

The seaweed range is especially made for combination – oily skin and it is perfect for me. The cream has a gel like texture and is water based, very very light on the skin.

It is a colorless cream that has a pleasant fragrance. The cream gets absorbed instantly, yet moisturizes my combination skin effectively. I no longer have dry patches around my mouth and nose which was my only concern after skipping my current skincare products for so many months. It just sinks in to my open pores near the nose and has even diminished them.

I love slathering it on my face n number of times a day but it is still not even half empty. One tub would definitely last me 2 months even if used daily. Apart from the price, I do not see any con. I can see myself buying the other products from this range soon.
