The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner - Review and Price


In the extreme climatic conditions such as in Delhi my skin becomes acne prone and oily. I started using this toner on the recommendation of a friend and fell in love with it from the first use. I have been using it for almost two months and my love for it has grown because of the wonderful results.

Keep reading to know why I love this product.
 
The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner


About the Product - This Clarifying Toner is made from natural ingredients such as seaweed, algae and cucumber and is alcohol free, refreshing & purifying which makes it best suited for Combination to oily skin.

How to Use- Apply to face and neck after cleansing and before moisturizing, using cotton pad. 

Packaging


It comes in a sturdy plastic see-through bottle with a flip cap. The flip cap has a sturdy click lock and does not spill and is easy to carry while travelling.

Texture - Water like very light texture. It doesn't feel heavy on the skin and the fragrance is quite refreshing too

Price- Rs. 895/-
Quantity- 200ml
Shelf Life- 3 years from mfg date. Use within 12 months after opening

Personal Experience:




After cleansing my face I like to dab a few drops of the seaweed toner on the cotton and just apply it all over my face. A few drops will be more than enough to do the work. When I look at the cotton after applying it, I can see the dirt and makeup on the cotton. It removes all excess traces of makeup and cleanser with ease. It leaves my skin feeling purified, refreshed, conditioned, shine-free and glowing.

It has menthol which cools, soothes and refreshes the skin. For me it takes away all the heat and stress after a stressful day of Delhi Summers. The toner refines the pores and hence reduces the breakout or acne. I have personally noticed a reduced breakout of acne and much lesser blackheads on my T-zone. I like to use it after removing facial hair as it soothes my skin and protects it from all sorts of puffiness, redness and allergic reactions which I used to get earlier. 

There is nothing about this product which I do not like expect for the price bar; the cost of the product is quite steep which is not an issue as it performs it jobs well but for some it might be expensive. However, The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner is perfect for oily and acne prone skin.

The Good:

·         Alcohol Free – hence, doesn’t make skin dry.
·         Contains Seaweed, Cucumber and Algae.
·         Purifies Skin - Removes excess make-up, oil, dirt & cleanser.
·         Refines the pores and helps in reducing acne breakouts.

·         Good fragrance.
·         Packed in a bottle which is easy to use, light and sturdy.
·         Perfect for combination to oily skin in summers.
·         Contains no added colour.

The Not-so-Good:

·         Contains Parabens.
·         200 ml for Rs. 895/- might be heavy on some of us pockets.

Rating: 4.5/5

Recommendation

All in all I will give it big thumbs up. I shall continue to use this product and shall try other products from the same range. I recommend this product if you have oily to combination skin, it works as a savior and also helps in reducing the pore size.
