The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream

For Christmas my mum got me the Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream as i had read rave reviews and i love a good day cream and a mattifying one sounds too perfect to be true!

The Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream is an oil-free, gel-like moisture cream which is easily absorbed and perfect for combination skin that moisturises dry areas, balances excess sebum and gives a matte, shine-free complexion. What more could i want! This retails for £10 for 50 ml or £4 for 15 ml. 

I like to apply this day cream after cleansing in the morning and i find it provides the perfect amount of moisture for my face ahead of primer and foundation. The consistency of the cream is interesting as it definitely does feel very gel-like and sort of wobbles a bit like jelly! The scent just smells very fresh and clean and is so subtle and reminds me of a subtle cucumber scent. The colour is a cloudy white colour, almost clear and once again a little goes a long way. Straight from application this mattifies my skin and i have found using this and then the Tea Tree Pore Minimiser have been my dream team this Christmas and party season! I have been reaching for this everyday and i cannot shout about it enough, it is amazing.

The day cream comes in a little pot, which has one of those inserts to stop the cream going everywhere.  I can imagine on dry skin, this might dry out the skin too much as it is intended for oily/combination skin. So far i have used this every day and i adore it, as after you apply it you aren’t left looking remotely greasy, but it leaves your skin smooth, flawless and perfect for application of make-up!

Have any of you tried this? What is your favourite day cream?

The other night i also got my camera (and my make-up bag, boo) stolen, so photo’s on my blog are not going to be amazing, just a warning, sorry till i sort it out!!!
