The Beauty Post | The Body Shop's Seaweed Clay Mask Review

 I am completely obsessed with face masks, in particular when it comes to this time of year. The colder weather can reek havoc on my skin and for whatever reason it tends to break out once we reach the end of the year. This is when I turn to face masks the most for help. Due to this I am forever on the hunt for a new face mask that will sort me out during my breakouts. For years I have been using Lush face masks that I thought did the job until I came across this baby. 

I tried out a small sample of The Body Shop's 'Seaweed' face mask. I am a true believer in clay face masks and find it oddly satisfying to see the darker patches on my skin once the clay has dried that is drawing out my impurities, Please tell me i'm not the only one? This mask hasn't get the friendliest of smells, and by that I mean once you get a whif of it you know this mask means business and will take no prisoners when it comes to spots on your face. If your skin is in any way dry or sensitive I would steer clear of this and it is quite harsh on your skin. 

From the first time I used it I saw huge results in my skin. My face was ridiculously soft to touch, my skin felt tight and fresh and a lot of my spots had cleared up. With continued use I saw even more results, with my skin clearing substantially. I still continue to get spots, it does not prevent that but it does keep them at ease and I know I can rely on it whenever needs be. At 22 euro the mask is a little on the pricey side, but once I am seeing results the price is well worth it. The tub it comes in is huge also so you are getting bang for your buck. 

Has anyone else tried this before, if so how did you find it? 

I hope you are all having a lovely Wednesday!

  8. Try TBS's Himalayan Charcoal Face Mask it is absolutely gorgeous! It has tea tree to help with spot control, and himalayan charcoal to help concur any excess oils. If you like the seaweed u'll love this one i'm sure! xxx

  9. My skin is on the dry side so I'm not sure this one is for me, but I would really like to try it! I love masks and I've always wanted to try a seaweed one.

  12. Have wanted to try one of The Body Shop face masks for a while but will have to stay clear of this one as I have slightly sensitive skin.

  13. I love this mask so much, every time I get a breakout I reach for it. Sometimes the scent can be too strong, so I always have to remind myself to apply a small layer.

  14. Great blog!
    Have a nice evening!
