The Body Shop - SeaWeed Ionic Clay Mask

Ive just realised that I haven't done a review in ages, I love doing them so I don't know why I haven't. Masks are my favourite part of my routine, I like playing around with different masks and seeing the results its made on my skin and it just feels much cleaner and softer. I love finding different masks that will do anything to help my pores and combination skin. I'm quite lucky that my skin doesn't react to most products so I can pretty much try anything and my skin wont react. The problem with my skin is my t-zone and large pores that drive me insane, I hate them as to me they look noticeable. I know clay masks are pretty good for these problems so I new this would help.

This seaweed mask is great for people with combination/oily skin, the most important ingredient in this is the bladderwrack seaweed, its known to have a powerful antioxidant and antibacterial properties. The mask looks like a thick greyish mud and has a thick grainy consistency that goes a long way, you only need a tiny bit and it covers your whole face, the scent can come off quite strong so I'm guessing that wouldn't be for everybody. The mask dries quite fast within 3 minutes and it makes your pores stand out which is a good thing as it shows its working,  you can start to feel the tight effect on your face also. I like to leave it on for a good 10minutes, then you have to really scrub it off so with sensitive skin it may not be the one, but if your not going anywhere all day thats fine as you can let the redness go down lol.

This is quite similar to Glamglow in a way, (white tube) but a much cheaper version as glamglow is pretty expensive but I do love that stuff, they both work the same way such as t-zone, pores, blackheads and spots.

Overall I love this, it makes my skin feel so refreshed mattified and smooth, it helps get rid of the disgusting stuff in my pores/blackheads, and when I do get the odd spot I love that it reduces the redness down bit, so this would be great for people who have acne or you just want to get rid of a few spots.

It retails for £13.00

  4. I've wondered what the seaweed range is like for a long time. Nice to know it didn't make your skin react. I think I'm going to wait for a Body Shop offer and go in store to have a look!

  5. This sounds great, however my skin gets dried out very easily so don't think it would suit. I want a skin-perfecting mask for dry skin, seems impossible! x

  13. This mask sounds great, I'm on the hunt for a good mask for dry skin as mine is terrible so this wouldn't be a great match for me :( However, I love the products from the Body Shop - especially the gingerbread range they had at Christmas!

  17. I actually have this! I don't use it very often, but when I do I really feel like it's giving my face a really good deep clean, even if it can be quite uncomfortable to use at times! xx

  18. you can't beat a good clay mask! I've been using one by Una Brennan and it's really good so far, I do prefer pots of mask though because they're so much easier to use without wasting loads

  21. Great review! It sounds like we have pretty similar skin types as the t-zone is definitely my problem area - though I suffer more with horrendous oil than blackheads, yuck! I think this would be quite suited to my skin so I might give it a try!
