~The Body Shop Seaweed pore-cleansing facial exfoliator REVIEW~

"This facial polish helps to cleanse pores and rebalance oil.

As i have done a post of my Vitamin E facial wash about how much i am liking it, i thought that i would give this product a little review too. I needed a facial exfoliator to use regularly as i find that the 'Origins modern friction' deeply exfoliates and sometimes during the week i need a bit of scrubbing to remove built up dead skin cells too. I picked this one up from the Body shop because there was a really good deal on where if you buy multiple items, you save on however much money like the usual body shop tactics to get you to buy more. At the shop i was contemplating on buying the Vitamin E gentle exfoliator, but when i tried it on my hand, i found that it was a little bit too gentle and i thought that it wouldn't really make much difference. This seaweed facial exfoliator is a gel consistency with little grains of different sizes within and it felt very pleasant on the skin.
I have now been using this every other day as part of my cleansing routine and i have stopped using my usual Origins modern friction and i have already seen and felt some major differences. My skin is more softer to touch and i feel that my make-up applies easier than before where i always had dry patches no matter how much i moisturised. I am happy that i picked this up because it is gentle yet effective and the smell is acceptable too. A little product goes a long way and it feels great using this product. I recommend this product to people who have sensitive skin or have combination skin with minor dry patches. The price is very reasonable for the amount of product and it is also free from animal testing! I am loving the body shop products again lately and i find that they have so many new ranges to choose from as well as their make-up expanding. 

So what is your favourite facial exfoliator?


  1. Looks interesting, I have never tried this!
    You have a lovely blog.

  2. Sounds like a great product and i will be sure to try it at some point in the future! However it is quite pricy given that it's quite a small tube :/
    Have you tried St.Ives apricot scrub? It's my all time favourite! :)

    Lots of Love, Ana

    1. I thought the price was quite good considering you only need a small amount. Yes i have used the St ives scrub, but i found that a bit too harsh for my skin and i think that something a little gentler would be better :) x

  3. i used to use this too and i loved it! i've been trying other exfoliators but this one shows really good results so far :)


  4. Excellent post, thanks for the review. Gonna try this and requesting you to keep writing. Get simple beauty tips here
