Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment

I love the Body Shop for many reasons...products are natural, they participate in community trade, run great campaigns for social issues, and their products smell great (oh, and they have great sales too).  So far I've found that their skincare products work well, and it's made me want to try more of their various skincare lines.  The first product I ever tried was the Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment, it's a gel that's oil-free which is exactly what I need.

The main ingredients are (duh, seaweed) but also antioxidants and vitamin b-2.  While the Body Shop says it can be used for all skin types, I would suggest a more normal-to-oily skin type would be best for this product as it really aims to control shine.

I count this product as a serum in my nighttime routine, so I use it after I cleanse (with my new Clarisonic of course!) and use my toner.  Then, I apply my eye cream and moisturizer after I layer on the Seaweed Clarifying Treatment.  You may not need a moisturizer after applying this treatment (actually, it's considered a moisturizer so you shouldn't need one), but I personally find I do in the winter...it's never made me too oily by doing this.

I'm really looking forward to trying more products from their seaweed line, especially the seaweed clay mask!



  1. Thanks for sharing. I'm always looking for new products to try and I do agree with you that the body shop is a great company and brand. What eye cream do you use?


  2. Thanks for your comment! I use Origin's GinZing eye cream, I actually have a post written for it, I'm preparing to post it tomorrow so look out for it! xo
