The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream & Tea Tree Blemish Gel Review.

Hello my loves, here to show you my recent little splurge. Worth my money splurge.
I ran out of moisturiser at home (the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel )so I thought it was time to switch to another one, I heard awesome things about this day cream so I went ahead and got that, along with the little tea tree blemish gel.

The Body Shop Seaweed Mattyfying Day Cream & Tea Tree Blemish Gel

The body shop says : an easily absorbed, non-clogging, oil-free, hydrating moisture cream. It balances excess sebum, moisturises dry areas, gives a matte, shine-free complexion.
It retails for $24.95 for 50ml of product. (Depending where you are, so check out their website for that.)
My say: Yes, it totally live up to its claims, and I looovee this stuff !

This is a gel like cream, which is great for any one with oily faces, like me. Because it is not oil based this awesome cream it will keep your face shine free for a good while. I put it on after i wash my face, day and night, also before makeup. A little goes a long way, when you apply it, it feels very moisturising and fast absorbing, after it dries and settles in, made my skin feel sooo smooth.

You might think, eeeeew, its god damn seaweed, well for those of you who hates seafood and the smell of it. Do not worry. This does not smell like seaweed at all, it has a very floral soothing smell to it. And that is partly why I love it so much too ! Go and have a smell before you turn your head away my loves.

(straight out of the jar)

(blended it out a litte, this amount here can cover a good half + areas of your face, a little goes a long way!)

Another thing I got is the Tea Tree Blemish Gel
The body shop says : A convenient  portable stick that helps to cleanse and fight blemishes with a triple blend or natural active ingredients, may be used alone or under make-up. It is a gel for targeted care, soothes, instantly cools without drying skin and this is clinically proven to give clear-looking skin. It retails for $12.95 for 2.5ml of product.
My say: Continuously used this for almost two weeks now, and yes, it is helping my acne a lot !

This little thing has helped my acne a lot for the last couple weeks, I am currently using this everyday before my make up and after I wash my face, also when I feel like there is a new one coming soon. Applying it on where I need it to be, right on top of your annoying new best friends, like you would with spot concealing, don't need a lot ,just a thin layer on top. I personally am not a big fan of the way the tea tree product smells, but this stuff works !

I am seeing my acne going away a lot more quicker than usual, it soothes those spots and also made them look less less red, and it is very convenient , you can just pop this in your bag and use it when ever you want to. I would recommend this if you have acne problems, try it out !

Hope you liked my post !
Have fun
