Yes, another Body Shop product review! I’ve been using the Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment for a couple of weeks now and here you can read my thoughts on this clarifying gel.
As you can see on the pictures, it’s not your usual night cream. This is actually pleasing and very easy to apply. The texture of this night treatment is a little more liquid than a gel and because of the little pump, you can extract the exact right amount. The design of this bottle is beyond perfect. I adore it when products have pumps, it’s handy and so much more hygienic than dipping your fingers in a jar! There’s also a little, noticeable plastic circle in this bottle which rises after time you use it. That means you can see clearly the exact amount of product that is left. Such a big plus, especially because this product is colorless. Can all bottles have this from now on, please? The gel itself doesn’t smell bad but it doesn’t smell nice either which surprises me: the Body Shop products usually smell nice or at least fresh. There’s just no smell here. I don’t mind though, as long as it doesn’t smell icky.
After applying it feels sticky although that feeling goes away after your skin absorbs the lightweight gel. After a couple of minutes, your skin feels moisturized. In the morning my skin feels clean. It’s okay as far as moisturizing goes but I have to add that there certainly are better moisturizing night treatments out there. I think it would be a good night treatment for people with oily skin though! I don’t see much change when it comes to the purifying and balancing aspect. As much as I would love to love this product, it’s not a holy grail product.
The Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment consists of natural ingredients only! One bottle will last approximately 4 months and costs $20. You can buy it in your nearest Body Shop or at TBS online store.
