THE BODY SHOP SEAWEED RANGE FOR VERY OILY SKIN


The Body Shop Seaweed Ionic Clay mask Review, Seaweed Clarifying Night treatment Review, Seaweed Mattifying Moisture lotion review.

SEAWEED IONIC CLAY MASK 
This is my favourite from the lot. This is a clay mask with a very earthy & relaxing smell that cleanses, purifies and controls excess oil. I have been using this once a week for about a month and half and I love it. If you have watched my June monthly favourites, then you might have already heard about it. I love how it pulls up all the gunk off your skin, and you can actually feel the difference when you use it. The clay mask comes in a tub, but lately I have been growing my nails and I don't like when the mask gets inside my nails, I wish that it came in a tube now. Whenever I travel a lot or have a very busy day, I just can't wait to get home to slap this mask on and let it clean all the oil/dirt out.
A fair warning though, this mask can be very stripping so make sure you use a good moisturiser and use it once a week if you have very sensitive skin.  Rs. 1295/-

SEAWEED MATTIFYING MOISTURE LOTION
I will be very honest and blunt with you, this is my least favourite product from this range and the body shop. I am utterly disappointed with this cream, and I think it does exactly the opposite of what it's supposed to. I have only tried this twice (the second time just to give it the benefit of doubt) and I just knew I dislike this product. My face looked like a grease-ball within hours of application, I think I look less oily without any mattifying cream on. I knew the SPF is fairly less (SPF 15) but I thought of overlooking that because I wanted a light base to apply my CC cream on, but this lotion is far from light. It felt very heavy on my skin as the consistency is quite thick, bought attention to my large pores, and left a weird white cast. The Seaweed range smells really earthy and refreshing, but this lotion has that sunscreen-ish smell to it, which I despise.  Rs 1295/-

SEAWEED CLARIFYING NIGHT TREATMENT
This treatment comes in a plastic bottle with a pump that suctions the product out. The product is a clear gel that absorbs really quickly on the skin. This isn't very moisturising but it will make your skin feel really fresh and I follow this treatment up with the La Roche Posay Effaclar Duo. I have never used a night treatment before and I really liked how my face looked a little less greasy than it used to before. This is something that wouldn't work on you at all if you have dry skin because it is literally like water. Rs 1295/-



So in retrospective, the SeaWeed range is really good for cleansing and controlling excess oil , but I would suggest you try a sample of their moisturisers before you make any commitment, as it can be a little heavy on the wallet and your skin.

The Body Shop Shimmer Cubes: Review+Swatches

THE BODY SHOP SHIMMER CUBES NO 6 & 20


I am obsessing over the body shop shimmer cubes lately.  I never could justify myself buying TBS makeup because I always felt they were a little expensive for me, and only bought these because they were on 70% off, and it was a real steal!. I picked up two palettes, no 6 and 20, and I am wearing no 6 almost everyday, the shimmery bronze-y colours are right up my alley. I love how super pigmented these eyeshadows are, they last really long and blend perfectly. They can fade just a little towards the end of the day, especially if its really really hot & humid. The packaging is pretty meticulous I must say, each eye shadows has their own case with with lids, and all packed together inside a bigger case. It can be very easy to carry around with you if you are on the go, or mix and create your very own quad, however, it can be a little tricky to open the outer case and then open the individual lids every time you use it. These cubes have a lot of product inside it, and it will last really really long.

The Colours:

Shimmer Cubes Palette 06:

01 HoneyComb
02 Dark Chocolate
03 Marshmallow
04 Choc Chip

Shimmer Cubes Palette 20:

01 Indigo Blue
02 Starlight Silver
03 Snow white
04 Midnight Black

The shades HoneyComb and Indigo Blue are my favourites. I love shimmery eyeshadows, and these have a lovely metallic sheen to it. I like it to wear the shades on their own and highlight the brow bone and inner corners with either Marshmallow or Snow white. The shade marshmallow is a perfect highlight colour, and I love wearing the shade on its own even when I am just wearing kohl on my lower lash line. The two palettes are perfect for a smokey look as the shades intensifies when you use a wet brush and the colour looks exactly like they do in the pot. You can even wear the shades as a liner if you use a wet angled brush.

The Body Show Shimmer Cubes are priced at Rs 1695/-
