Review | The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream

I've spent a long time searching for the perfect day cream. And I think I've found it.

The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream is for combination/oily skin. How it works is it moisturises dry patches of skin and mattifies oily patches of skin.

Throughout my teenage years I had oily skin. I'd get horrible breakouts and I now have the scars to prove it (never pick spots, you'll regret it like I now do). However, recently I've started getting dry patches around my nose and my mouth which shocked me as I've never had to deal with dry skin before. All the skincare products I used dried out these areas even more (as they are for oily skin) so I invested in the Seaweed Day Cream.

The cream has a very light consistency and a subtle clean smell. I apply onto my skin using my fingers (or sometimes a foundation brush) and it sinks in immediately. There's no residue left on my skin, and my dry patches feel moisturised instead of sore. There's no shine and throughout the day my skin feels 'normal'.

I would definitely recommend this cream to anyone who has slightly oily skin or combination skin. Most people with oily skin tend to think they shouldn't moisturise but you should - it's all about finding a moisturiser that is best for oily skin, like this one!

The Seaweed range is available online and in store at The Body Shop.



  1. This sounds great! I had the exact problem you did now my skins dry only around my nose and forhead lol! Will be giving this a go x

  2. I love this range my friend recommended it to me, its such a great moisturizer I love how its natural as well. I have never used the day cream however I think I might try it out!


  3. Ooh this sounds fab! I love the Body Shop's skincare products! xx
