REVIEW: The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Night Treatment

night cream for oily combination skin to reduce sebum shine and oil

So this night treatment is the night time moisturiser which works really well in conjunction with the Body Shop's Mattifying Day Cream. If you have oily or combination skin I would really recommend using these two products, I've been using them together since the end of December and I've noticed a big improvement in my skin. I used to struggle with oiliness which really frustrated me as I hate my make-up slipping and I really hate looking shiny! I was a little bit worried about whether the Body Shop's products would work as they seemed so cheap compared to other mattifying products that I'd been looking at. However, what I have found with both the Day Cream AND the Night Treatment is that they really do work brilliantly. They also haven't aggravated my skin at all (which is something I do worry about as I have quite sensitive skin). I have combination skin so chose to not apply these mositurisers to my cheeks as they are usually quite dry and need a moisturiser aimed at dry/sensitive skin but on my t-zone I really can't stress the improvement that I've noticed.

The Night Treatment is a gel formula that feels very much like a liquid. It sinks into the skin almost instantly and does provide a level of moisturisation which doesn't  ever leave my skin feeling tight. The concept of the night treatment it to balance out sebum production in your skin to help reduce the production of excess oil. I personally think it did this for me as I've been using it on my t-zone for 6 weeks now and I always wake up with oil-free skin that isn't at all dry- the perfect result really. I bought this when there was an offer on in store (but it's worth noting that there is almost always an offer floating around for the Body Shop) so although this has an RRP of £11 (available online here or in Body Shop stores) I think you'll almost definitely going to be able to get your hands on it for less than that. I paid £5.50 and to me that it was just the ultimate bargain. I'll definitely be repurchasing this as I've really enjoyed using it, although I still have about 2/5 of the product left which is brilliant after 6 weeks of daily use. The seaweed range has really impressed me overall, but I'd also high recommend their tea tree range if you have blemished skin, I've reviewed the Tea Tree Pore Minimiser and I have another review of a product from that range coming soon.

Do you have a night cream recommendation for oily/combination skin?
