I’m going to be quite honest, I only wanted to look and see if there were any new products in my local The Body Shop store, and of course, I lack self-control. BUT, I will say it was no where near as catastrophic for my bank account as it could have been, so I will pardon myself for that much.
All of the products that I bought today are from the older packaging of the Seaweed line, which I noticed today they’re trying to just sell out and get rid of, so that the new packaging (which I admit is very very lovely) can take their place on the shelves. So the prices of these products are significantly cheaper than the full price you will find them in their new packaging. I, however, don’t put too much priority on packaging to let this stop me from buying them.
The first product is the Seaweed Purifying Facial Cleanser, which I paid £5.70 for. What sold me on this was the instructions describing you can clean this off with a cotton pad, which to me, means convenient. I only use wash off cleansers in the shower, and since I shower every other day, it means I’m swapping between a wash off and a simpler cleanser depending on which day I shower. I’m curious to see if this can be my non-shower day cleanser and whether it’ll be as convenient as I’m hoping.
Next is the Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment, which was retailing at £1.50. Yes, £1.50. I’m curious how I might incorporate this into my night time skin care routine, but with summer here, and with lots of humidity, oil control and pore cleansing has bumped even higher on my list of skin care priorities. This honestly looks exactly the same as Seaweed Pore Perfector which I reviewed recently, but I will wait to see if they behave similarly or not.
Finally, I have a super teeny-tiny tub of the Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream, which may be kicked into action should I use up my current oil-control moisturiser (which is the Holika Holika Aqua Max Sebum Control Moisture Cream, for anyone who might be curious) before the summer ends. Otherwise, I might take this to my boyfriend’s place instead since it’s such a tiny tub and I don’t get to stay over all the time. Life, huh? I paid £1.50 for this little thing, which I think is a great price for what is ultimately a sample size tub.
I nearly purchased one of the blushes, but I have so many blushes already that I exercised some self-control to not make my stash even larger. Trust me, it’s bad. Otherwise, these were all of the products that I purchased today, and I’m looking forward to trialing and then reviewing these for you once I’ve given them enough time to show me how they work with my skin.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read my post – I really can’t express my gratitude enough. If you have any questions regarding these products, or if you have any suggestions for good products or ones you really want me to review asap, please let me know with a comment, and I will respond as soon as I see it.
