THE BODY SHOP SEAWEED CLEANSER,TONER AND DAY CREAM..REVIEWS

hello everyone ,
today I will review 3 products together.These 3 products belong to the same family of skin care,from The Body Shop
I had purchased them around  2 weeks ago and have been using them since then regularly
They are :
  1. The Body shop SEA WEED  purifying cleanser.
  2. The Body ShopSEA WEED clarifying toner.
  3. The Body Shop SEA WEED mattifying cream.
I will review the Cleanser and toner first.


Both the products belong to the sea weed range which is for combination to oily skin(my skin belongs to this type).
Both come in a bottle with a flip top.Pretty sturdy packaging and the locking is perfect.No spills(have carried them in my bag too,when i travelled.)Only little bulky for day to day carrying e.g to work.
The quantity is    200      ml each
MADE MY WALLET LIGHTER BY  :Rs 545/- EACH

FRAGRANCE:Both of the have a very pleasant mild fragrance, nothing overpowering.Its like the ocean and very ummmmmmmmm..misty..love it..

TEXTURE

CLEANSER it has  a smooth milky texture.Neither too thick,nor too runny.spreads easily.
I find it very effective as a cleanser.Have been using it to remove my makeup also, of late, and find it really nice.NOT OILY at all.NO sticky after feel
Once or twice ,I used it to clean my eye makeup(I had run out of my regular eye makeup remover) and it worked superbly well.NO stinging the eyes.Am now planning to continue this as my eye makeup remover too.But for all,who want to try this as an eye MU remover,please try it a bit first on your eyes.

TONER  :is like any other toner.Clear in appearance and beautifully fragranced.
IT works very well to close my pores.NOW you might find this next line a bit  weird,when i use this ,I always get a tingling sensation on my face esp in my Tzone.I never got it with my previous toner(neutrogena).I feel my product is working on me.I loveeeeee it...:)
I noted that this cleanser does not make me feel dry or itch at my face after application.I used to feel strecthy on my face after my previous one.
It almost immediately gives a glow to the face and refreshes it.
Rating
Cleanser 5/5
Toner 5/5
Will I buy again???? both products yes ,definitely the toner though...love the feel!!

AND NOW THE CREAM
THE BODY SHOP SEA WEED MATTIFYING  DAY CREAM  FOR COMBINATION OILY SKIN



ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
(from the site)
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 shine free, matte complexion.

MADE MY WALLET LIGHTER BY: Rs 695/-!!! l
QUANTITY : 50 ml!!
PACKAGING: It comes in a tub form,which in my opinion is extremely unhygienic.On opening the lid there is another cover which prevents leakage.
FRAGRANCE:Oceanic and misty..very similar to the cleanser toner
TEXTURE:
the consistency is gel like ,though not clear gel.Its slightly milky.
MY EXPERIENCE WITH THE CREAM:
This cream is for mattifying and giving a oil free look.On using it:
It  spreads very  easily.There is a very small amount needed for application.
It is not sticky on application  but takes a long time to get absorbed into my skin. around 4-5 minutes for complete absorption.The first time I thought it was because the quantity taken by me was more than needed,but even if I take a small amount,IT does not dry up quickly.
It does not form a sticky layer after absorption though.while applying it feels good and refreshing.
I was expecting it to have good amount of oil control.SADLY, that's not the case.and my skin,mind you is not really oily!!!!
I did not get a dry  stretchy feel either which I get with other gels..but as far as mattifiaction is concerned ,NADA!!!
PROS:Few really!!!
  • Only feels smooth and goes on slick.
  • Makes me refreshed

CONS!!
No mattifiaction (that's the primary claim!!)
Poor oil control
Takes time to assimilate into the skin..
very expensive for the effect achieved
NO SPF!!and its a day cream!!!!!!!!
No change in my skin ( I have gotten very good results with Loreal white day cream...like a glow after using it for 3-4 days.feeling my skin texture improve ..etc..

Will i buy it again : NO way!!!! totally not value for money


Do you own any of these products??
What are your experiences....???
Tell me  soon!!
bye for now

Thanks for reviewing Shivani ! The cleanser and toner sound good but the cream's def not worth it. I've tried TBS tea tree oil day cream when I was having a bout of pimples and it was quite quick absorbing and also controlled oil. I;m loving Oriflame skin care products these days..!
