My Experience With The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream:-
The very first thought that came into my mind after looking at this cream was it looks like jelly but no it is a gel based very lightweight yet non-sticky day cream which smells amazing like all of their body shop seaweed range products. The fragrance is quite similar in all of their products. After the cream application, the skin feels so cool and refreshing which is the best thing to me as my face always feels like its burning. This cream provides deep hydration to my oily skin and keeps my skin hydrated and moisturized all day long. It provides a good matte finish without over-drying my skin although matt finish doesn’t last for the whole day in case you an excess oily skin but also it controls oil production of my skin. The color of this cream is kind of in between transparent and light milky white. My skin feels less oily now. It makes my skin so soft, supple and smooth. It is easy to spread and very little quantity is required to cover whole face and neck. This cream has improved my skin texture a lot which is amazing. The consistency of the cream is like a wet gel and it is not runny. My face feels super clean and baby soft. It doesn’t break me out and does not clog my pores too. It has reduced the size of my enlarged pores which is a good thing for me. According to me, this cream works well in summers as compared to winters as this a mattifying cream which can dry out my skin during winters. So, I will not recommend this cream for winters. It’s better to keep it inside fridge as it feels amazing when I apply it during these burning summers. It comes in small circular plastic jar packaging with a cap as it a face cream if they have given a small spatula for the application it would have been great as it sounds a bit unhygienic to me. The only disappointment I have is this cream does not have any SPF (sun protection factor) so I still have to use Sunblock for my face. The light blue color and design make the product look attractive.
Overall Performance of the Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream
- Lightweight cream.
- Improve skin texture.
- Feels refreshing and gives a matte finish.
- Keeps skin hydrated and moisturizes.
- The absence of SPF.
- No spatula for application.
Would I Repurchase Or Recommend?
I would rate it 5/5. I would repurchase it as it is a lightweight, cooling, a hydrating and mattifying cream which is perfect for summer’s days. I would recommend it to those who have an oily skin and combination skin.
