Face wash or a facial cleanser is an important step in your CTM routine because it takes out all the dirt, dust and gunk from your pores making your skin fresh, healthy and squeaky clean. It makes you feel fresh and energized. I have a habit of using different face washes.
This time when I walked into The Body Shop showroom, I was eager to try something new, something that is meant for combination/oily skin. I and Ankit saw the Seaweed range and thought why not try something new. We picked The Body Shop‘s Seaweed Deep Cleansing Gel Wash, here’s my review on it 🙂 –Price- INR 795/- for 125 mlAbout- Cleanse your skin whilst rebalancing moisture levels, with our gentle seaweed face wash. Oil-free and soap-free, this face wash will effectively remove impurities, leaving a shine-free matte finish.
-Cleanly removes make-up, excess oil and impurities.
-Oil and soap-free formula.
-Leaves skin cleansed and matte.
-Contains wild bladderwrack seaweed from the south-west coast of Ireland.Packaging- The Body Shop Seaweed Pore cleansing facial gel wash comes in a sea blue packaging with a black flip open cap. Moreover, all the information regarding the product is mentioned on the product. The packaging is handy, travel-friendly and quite nice. Totally loved the color of the product as it looks refreshing and quite appealing.
Texture and Fragrance- The texture of this facial cleanser is gel-like, it lathers quite well. It has got an aquatic fragrance which is mild and pleasing. It’s perfect for people who don’t like “over the top” fragrance in their products. Since, I have got oily/combination skin, I prefer to wash my face at least twice a day.
My Experience- It does take out all the dirt, dust and gunk from your face. You can literally feel the difference. It doesn’t make your skin dry, and that’s a great thing. I particularly loved the fact that it gently cleans the face and takes off light makeup too. Though it might not take all the makeup especially the waterproof one it does take out light makeup from your face.
Also, this does not work on acne or pimples, as it won’t reduce them. There is no guarantee that your acne or pimples will go away. But it works quite well on regular days. Thus, a squeaky clean face is what I get and that’s what I want. Loved the product as it does the job what the company claims.Things I like about this-
- Removes all the dirt, dust and gunk from the face.
- Works great for oily skin people
- Makes your face squeaky clean
- Removes light makeup
- Does not dry the skin
- Great packaging
- The fragrance is not overpowering
Things I dislike about this-
- Does not work for acne prone skin.
- A little pricey for a face wash.
Wrapping it up- In brief, I absolutely love The Body Shop’s facial cleanser as it is mild, gentle on your face and doesn’t rip off the oil from your face. It is gentle and doesn’t have any prominent smell. I kinda liked the fact that it is not overpowering. Doesn’t work very much on acne-prone skin.
