Advantages Smells nice, leaves skin clean fresh and pores minimised.
Disadvantages Now I will have to spend money buying other products from the range too!
Before buying this product I have tried lots of different toners from different brands ranges and price ranges. I had two favourites from my experiences one being Biore toner and another Body Shop one from the Vitamin E range they do. As The Body Shop had given me a favourite before I thought I would turn back to it after not being completely amazed by a Lush version.I sent my other half off to work one morning with my Body Shop gift card which had five pounds on it and a nice shiny gold coin so that he could pop into the local Body Shop store which is just round the corner from where he works.
I had decided to try the toner from this range of their products as it is meant to be the range best suited to my skin type. The Body Shop sells nine skincare ranges; WISE WOMAN regenerating products for mature skin, MOISTURE WHITE a brightening range, SEAWEED returns oil balance to oily/combination skin
The Seaweed range is made up of seven products; Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment £9, Seaweed Clarifying Toner £6, Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash £6, Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream £8, Seaweed Mattifying Moisture Lotion SPF 15 £9, Seaweed Pore-CleansingFacial Exfoliator £6.50 and Seaweed Purifying Facial Cleanser £6.The Body Shop has done this Seaweed range for some time but it has recently had a bit of a facelift, I cannot comment on the former toner as I had only tried the scrub and face wash. They were good with results but stank!
The best part is if you have a few products you already love you can mix those with products from the range that suits you. The Body Shop say that if your skin looks shiny on the T zone, with healthy looking cheeks, occasional blemishes and has visible medium sized pores in the T zone that your skin is combination/oily and so needs oil balancing products from the Seaweed range.I have the typical skin they have detailed about. My pores are reasonably visible which I hate and I have normal skin on my cheeks that can get rather dry at times where I need harsher products on my T zone. The thing is none of us want to use two different face washes, creams and toners because out skin isn't uniform all over our face do we!
I have always found that combination skin aimed products go one of two ways, they can either be too harsh for the drier parts where they are trying so hard on my T zone or they are not good enough at controlling the oily T zone but my cheeks feel great.
