In the winter my skin gets ridiculously dry in certain spots, but for basically the rest of the year, my face gets super oily around my nose, forehead, và even my chin. Since my skin is so finicky, especially living in New England with constantly changing seasons, it leaves me really prone khổng lồ breakouts and shiny skin (the bad kind of shiny—like, greasy shiny). No matter which products I would try, nothing seemed khổng lồ minimize my oily skin and still help lớn moisturize the dry spots. It can get really frustrating when you can’t seem to find the right skincare products, even when you spend a bunch of money and time to try to find the best ones.

I’ve always loved The body Shop và the huge range of products that they offer, so I was super psyched when one of the staff recommended the Seaweed Oil-Control Gel Cream to me, along with a couple other products. I told them I was looking for a moisturizer for my dry skin that would work well under makeup & wouldn’t make my face too oily within the T-zone. When I was pointed khổng lồ the little blue containers on the wall behind me, I immediately had a bunch of questions—will it dry out my skin too much? Can I wear it overnight too? Should I pair it with other products? All my questions were answered patiently, và after I bought one container (plus some vitamin E Hydrating Face Mist and Moisture Cream), I went home to try it out.

The Seaweed Gel Cream is exceptionally smooth and smells just lượt thích seaweed, so the name is very fitting.

I began using the cream on my whole face the first few times & found that it wasn’t as much of a moisturizer as I had hoped (which it is not advertised as, anyway). It does, however, work wonders on oily skin! After realizing this, I started using my vi-ta-min E Moisture Cream for the dry parts of my face & the Seaweed Gel Cream for my T-zone where I would get oily. The Seaweed Cream creates a matte finish on the face so you don’t kết thúc up with super shiny skin, và it works best paired with other toners và cleansers that fit your skin type as well. Occasionally I’ll use the Seaweed Cream as an overnight cream if it’s exceptionally hot out so I don’t wake up with a really oily face, but mostly I use the vi-ta-min E Moisture Cream for overnight hydration. This is really important for those with combination skin who want lớn use this product—the Seaweed Cream does dry out your oily skin, so using it on areas of dry skin will make it even drier. Use a true moisturizer at night to lớn keep your face fully hydrated và at its softest! For some added moisture throughout the day, I love the vi-ta-min E Hydrating Face Mist. Spritzing my face a couple times throughout my day feels refreshing & keeps my face feeling healthy!

All in all, I wouldn’t recommend this hàng hóa just as a general moisturizer for combination skin, but if you have oily skin or even just oily patches of skin, this will vì chưng an amazing job reducing shine và giving you a matte finish! It’s not heavy at all, and it gives my skin a nice, healthy glow once I put it on. It smells fantastic, feels amazing (use it on damp skin for the softest feel) và is a great sản phẩm that does exactly what it advertises!
