Review: The Body Shop Seaweed Purifying Facial Cleanser

The seaweed isn't always greener, but it makes an excellent cleanser.


Hey, I couldn't help The Little Mermaid reference.

I purchased this little goodie at The Body Shop Event and I've been obsessed ever since.

The Seaweed Purifying Facial Cleanser does exactly what it says on the bottle, it makes your skin feel purified.
Seaweed is meant to be perfect for combination/oily skin as it doesn't strip away the natural oils in your skin but removes any make up, impurities and excess oil.
The product has a white creamy consistency that when applied to the skin is incredibly soothing and cooling. I love sweeping this over my face first thing in the morning to wake my skin up and in the evenings to cool my face before going to sleep.

Not only is it incredibly cooling, but it smells incredible. The scent is incredibly fresh and you can't help but love the scent of this when applying it to your face. Using either cotton pads or a muslin cloth, I apply this product to my face twice a day. I've found that to remove all make up takes two-three cotton pads depending on how heavy my eye make up is.
As a make up remover, it works fantastically well and literally melts the make up off your face. Yes, even that stubborn eyeliner is going to melt off and I've found that I'm waking up with zero mascara or eyeliner remnants under my eyes.

I don't usually do a review so quickly but even after using this product for a week, I am totally hooked and this product has become one of my favourite cleansers.

You can find the Seaweed range at The Body Shop online or in store.
