THE SKINCARE CHRONICLE: SEAWEED AND TEATREE

Skincare By

The Bodyshop





- Last weekend my skin went crazy for no good reason at all.
Without warning I woke up with ridiculously dry, sore and itchy skin on my chin
and a huge patch of really sore, bruise like spots.
As you can imagine it was not what was needed for a busy trip to London to help my chap move out of his old flat.

 I am indeed a girl with oily/combination skin and never in my life have I had 
dry skin.

Within a few days I managed to bring my skin back to life a little bit but I inspired to splash out on
 a complete skincare overhaul.
Out with the old and in with a new routine!

I consulted the Bodyshop for a little bit of help as their 
Seaweed 'Mattifying Day Cream' 
was the saviour of the day when my chin went bazerk.
The Bodyshop products are quality and without the ridiculous price tag so I can keep replacing the products without burning a hole in my purse.

I headed in store for a complete consultation and in the hope of coming away with 
a full bag of products for a new skincare routine.

And...

That is exactly what I got.

Lurking around in my BIBA purse was an old gift card from the Bodyshop with 
£15 left on it.
Excellent

I was advised that the 'Tea Tree' range would probably be too strong even for my blemish prone skin as  I was informed that my skin has probably gone into overdrive from a particulaly harsh toner that I had been using daily.
Having already tried an excellent product from the
Seaweed range, my new routine comes from that line.

The Seaweed range helps rebalance sebum and gives the skin a matte finish.
No more shiny oil slick here!

1.
Seaweed 
'Deep Cleansing Facial Wash'
Combination/Oily Skin
£8.00


- I love the gel formula that really lathers up to give your face a throroughly clean and leaving your skin with a fresh feeling.
Within one use I knew that I was using a cleanser that was not going to irritate my skin but was also going to cleanse and blitz away those pesky blemishes.

2.
Seaweed
'Clarifying Toner'
Combination/Oily Skin
£8.00


- I started trying the toner a little after my sore, dry skin had become less irritated as I felt even the most gentle toner would irritate my already unhappy skin.
When I did finally use the toner on a soft cotton pad, I was thoroughly impressed with the gentle nature of it, my skin did not feel stripped instead my complexion was brighter and my skin a was a happy chappy.


3.
Tea Tree Oil
£7.00


- I apply the Tea Tree Oil to any blemishes I have using a cotton pad, the scent of this product is very over powering and it does sting a little when applied to the spot.
My spots cleared within three to four uses of the oil.
I have also dabbed some of the product on to any areas that feel bruised
(Prime symptom of a spot appearing!)

I have also been continuting the use my Mattifying Day Cream
first thing on a morning.

I have been using these products every night to take off my makeup and cleanse my face
and already my skin is relaxing and returning to a more normal state.
I feel more confident in my skincare routine knowing that each product has its own job!
