After watching Meejmuse's video (many months ago), I decided to try THE BODY SHOP SEAWEED DEEP CLEANSING FACIAL WASH. First of all, I quite like the design of the tube la. It's simple...plus I love the colour! Indeed it's the colour that got me attracted to it~ Somehow it looks CONVINCING! So I don't really think twice to purchase them. Hahaha!
ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
The Body Shop® difference: Our wild-harvested seaweed, which comes from our fabulous Community Trade partner in Ireland, is an incredibly nutritive sea vegetable that has been a diet stable in Japan and China for thousands of years. Seaweed is packed with vitamins and minerals that are also great for your skin, and because it moisturizes and conditions with zero oils, it is ideal for use on normal to shiny skin. Grown without any chemicals or fertilizers, our seaweed is an entirely natural and sustainable ingredient that re-grows fully within two years.
A light, oil-free, soap-free gel face cleanser to deeply clean, open pores and remove excess oil, make-ups, and dirt daily. Leaves your skin clean and fresh.
HOW TO USE:
Wet face and apply with fingertips. Lather up, then rinse away with clean water.
I personally think that this cleanser did a good job. It leaves the face feeling clean without drying or tightens the skin. And thanks to Menthol added into the ingredients, it's refreshing!
Scent wise, it was good! One word...FRESH! I really love the smell a LOT! How should I describe it...most probably that smell that usually labelled as "ocean" scent when you're buying fragrance related items...lolololol.

Am so glad that there's no Methylparaben and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS). But there's Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)...so yeah...*sobs* (Do let me know if there are other bad ingredients listed on the list above...since I don't really know much about chemicals)
I dunno if all of the packaging (caps) are the same. But I kinda dislike the top part. It's hard to close the cap after each use. I need to use extra power to close it. It's "tight"! Bought two tubes of this cleanser and both of them are the same...On positive side, it won't easily self-open when you bring them for travelling la...*coughs*
Excuse my dry hand due to my incompatibility with Biore Body Foam "Sweet Peach"...they dry le skin so badly~~
Gel (going towards watery I'd say). Blame myself who
is a reincarnation of Xena the Warrior Princess is "too powerful"...so I press hard and tend to get more gels than needed. Which of course leads to shortage alert in no time! It finished faster than it supposed to lasts for! OTL
Bought them for IDR139k each at THE BODY SHOP store in Mall Kelapa Gading.
Yes...Definitely on my buying list if I'm not trying other cleansers or using previous cleansers that I love. It's one of the few that doesn't break out on me. Plus it smells good, refreshing and not drying~
To close this post I'm gonna share you Meejmuse's video that I watched before buying this particular cleanser. Do subscribe to her! She's so lovely! Plus her videos are fun and informative~ :D
Have a nice day!!
