The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner | Review

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.
