The Body Shop Seaweed Travel Essentials

Hello beauties!

Recently I've been trying to be more active in the way of skincare, It's never really interested me but after a recent good look at my skin and the damage years of dismissal and 'I'll start tomorrow's' have done quickly prompted me to re-think my actions and look into buying some good skincare items, So I went off to The Body Shop and using an amazing code got this little travel sized set for a bargain £7.50(usually £11).

Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream - I've never used a mattifying cream before so I wasn't sure what to expect, It has a slightly usual texture, not quiet a cream and not a gel somewhere comfortably in the middle. It leaves my skin super soft and moisturised, my pores also look slightly smaller/blurred. 

Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash - This is probably my favourite of the 4, I use it with an exfoliating facial sponge also from The body shop. It lathers up into a lovely soft foamy wash and my skin feels so so clean after using it too, this also tightens my pores!

Seaweed Clarifying Toner - I hadn't ever used a toner so I didn't know what to think or it and i'm still not 100% sure what it is for. When I use this after cleansing it stings a little, nothing unbearable and then once the stinging goes down my skin looks plump and poreless and it also feels very refreshed! 

Seaweed Night Treatment Serum - I love applying this just before I go to bed, it's a really lightweight formula that sinks in really fast, It doesn't sit on my skin or leave a greasy residue which I really like about it. When I wake up my skin is lovely a smooth and plumped out with tightend pores.

Overall, I really like this little set and I will definitely be keeping up with using these as I've seen a really good improvement so far! I'd highly recommend it to someone just getting into skincare like myself as it's uncomplicated, easy to use and really gentle. 

Have you used The Body Shop skincare before? I'd love some more recommendation! 


  1. I used to use the Seaweed skin care from Body Shop when I was younger and I'm not quite sure why I stopped, but I loved it just as much as you do. I really think I might have to go pick up some of this skin care again, thank you for re-introducing me!

  2. I've never tried this range x

  3. I've always been interested in trying this range; this set seems like the perfect way to do so! I love the tea tree range from TBS so I'll look into this one - the night treatment looks interesting :)
