The Body Shop Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash Review, Price, Details


The Body Shop Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash Review, Price, Details

So I was going through my couple of recent blog posts the other day. And suddenly found that it has been ages since I wrote about any skincare product on this space. The reason could be that I do not experiment much with skincare and try to stick to a particular regimen! But then I checked my stash and realized that I have actually incorporated few new skincare products in my routine whose reviews are pending!

So without any more blabbering, let’s know my experience using a Body Shop Face wash which I have been using for good 2.5 months! It is their Seaweed Cleansing Facial Wash.

Price: INR 695 for 100 ml

What The Brand Says…

This mild cleansing gel is oil and soap-free. It helps rebalance moisture and sebum levels as it cleanses. 
• Removes make-up, impurities and excess oil 
• Leaves skin feeling refreshed 
• Gives a shine-free, matte finish

What I Say…

Packaging:

I love the aqua blue tube! It is functional and hygienic! However, the flip cap does not shut securely at times, especially when I am in hurry! Also I have experienced mild spillage while travelling. I am not sure if it is a generic problem with this packaging or only I have received one with a faulty cap!

Texture:

Very runny and transparent gel like! It lathers quite a bit, unlike many other gel cleansers, which I like! Because it gives squeaky clean feel to my facial skin post wash. It might feel a bit sticky on the skin immediately after application, but it all goes away once rinsed with water.

Also, the tube opening needs to be cleaned every now and then. Else excess product will get accumulated and make it messy.

Smell:

Very refreshing aqua kind of! As the brand claims, they use the bladderwrack seaweed which grows wild in clean waters off the south-west coast of Ireland.

Efficiency:

I wanted to get the tea tree cleanser but the SA recommended me this one which is best suited for combination skin!

Honestly, I share mixed feelings towards this product! Neither I like it too much, not do I hate it! It is no doubt a good mild cleanser which effectively removes dirt and makeup! Yes makeup also. I have not tried removing makeup only with this. I use baby oil first to melt down my makeup and then my facial cleanser! That way, this cleanser never leaves any baby oil residue behind which is a thumbs up! At the same time it does not dry out my skin as well post washing. Also, it impacts a cooling sensation to the skin which I like a lot and would be very comforting in upcoming hot summer days!

But if I compare it with my previous cleansers which comes at a very cheaper rate, this is not anything extra ordinary! I still get occasional zits and break outs! It does not work on my acne marks as well. It’s true that it does not claim to work on pimples or break outs! But being designed for combination skin, I was expecting it to tighten open pores which it does not!

Quick Checkpoints:

Likes:
  • Mild cleanser which cleans combination skin effectively without drying
  • Refreshing aqua smell
  • Imparts cooling sensation to the skin which feels very soothing after a hectic day
  • Lathers well and leaves squeaky clean feel behind
  • Maintains oil balance of the skin well
Dislikes:
  • Too many chemicals and preservatives in the ingredient list!
  • Pricey
  • Not effective on pimples and acne marks
Final Word:

I had high expectations. But I am not too impressed with this product and I will mostly not repurchase this! That being said, this is not at all a bad cleanser. But the quality is not that awesome as compared to the price! I am eyeing on their Tea Tree cleanser next!

Rating: 3.8/5
