The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner

I have oily skin and I tend to prefer products, which help zap the excess oil. I love using The Body Shop Tea Tree Toner. But with the days getting colder I needed something gentler for my skin. I have used TBS Seaweed face wash and I loved how gentle it was. So I picked up The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner to help remove excess oil without drying out my skin.

The product claims to “This alcohol-free, refreshing and purifying toner helps to rebalance combination skin.

  • Removes traces of cleanser, make-up and impurities
  • Purifies
  • Refreshes
  • Prepares skin for moisturizer.”

My Experience with The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner

This isn’t my first bottle of The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner, and the rates have been constantly increasing. But despite the hike in price I continue to buy this toner now and then as it is gentle on my sensitive skin and works well against the oil slick floating on my face. I use this similar to any other toner – cleanse the face and then use the toner.

A lot of toners targeted at oily skin tend to have alcohol, as alcohol helps to remove the oil. But at the same time they can a little harsh on the skin. The Seaweed toner is alcohol free, yet it manages to remove oil and leave the skin matt. The toner has a mild refreshing fragrance and is a pleasure to use. It purifies the skin removing dirt and any left over makeup. While it does some amazing wonders, the toner seems to have little to no effect on my rather large pores. The ingredients list also contain some words we wouldn’t want to see in skin care products. Even still this is one of the best toners I have tried and if you have a combination to oily skin you will love using this.

    1. Thanks Aditi. If you have combination or sensitive skin do give the Seaweed range a try. It works amazingly.

    1. I haven’t tried plum products. But I have heard great things about it. Would definitely try out their toner and see how it works.

    1. The best would be to resort to homemade all natural products. But then again we do get lazy and try to resort to quick fix and quick results. Most of the products we use and not just skin care are loaded with parabens and sulphates. But there are alternates but not as easily available.

    1. I use their Tea Tree toners in summers. The days are still a little dry so I opted for something that doesn’t completely zap the oil.

    1. It is nice Ritam. It worked really well on my oily skin and didn’t dry it out during the colder days.

    1. I’ve just started exploring Kiehl’s products. Expensive but some products are nice. Would love to try that out as well. Thanks for your suggestion Yasmin.

    1. Same here Charu and it worked well. But in summers I prefer their tea tree toner as it zaps oil extremely well.

    1. Thanks Dipti. I find that this lasts a long time. You can check out the product during sale.
      They also used to have a mini set, if that’s available it’s a great way to sample their Seaweed range.

    1. Thanks for your kind words Anubhuti. TBS has a sale going on now – Buy 4 and get 20% off. Though not the best offer, it is still better than paying full price.

    1. TBS is constantly hiking their prices. There are so many more products I want to try from their range and the price tag is actually stopping me. Wish they weren’t becoming so expensive.
