The Beauty Test: Seaweed Range (day 9-23)

I should start by saying, I've had no internet for the last week hence why posts have been a little, or a lot, scarce in the last week or so. It's been so frustrating because I've been dying to update you all on my beauty test as well as show you a few things I've bought in the last couple of weeks. Here is a catch up though from day 9 to day 23 so all that other stuff will have to wait for a later date.

Catch up with previous posts:

This is the second to last post of the beauty test where I am reviewing how The Body Shop's Seaweed Skincare range is working for my skin. In the last 23 days I have been surprised at how much I've enjoyed doing my skin everyday but also how many positive changes I have noticed in it. My skin is now...

I've never suffered too badly when it comes to breakouts and acne and somehow managed to make my way through adolescence with only the occasional nasty spot. Saying this, although in the last few years my skin has been clear-ish, it's usually been tainted by a few blemishes. Since starting this beauty test 23 days ago, my skin is the clearest I have seen it in a long time. The little blemish of spots on my chin has vanished and my skin is noticeably clearer (yay).

Before starting this test, I would have always described my skin as combination skin, meaning some areas are dry, some oily and some normal, but this skincare range has definitely eliminated the dry areas I used to have under my eyes and across patches of my face. My skin is visibly and physically softer.

Less oily but still not perfect
I started this test because I wanted my skin to become less oily and it has definitely helped. I do find that my t-zone is prone to go a little shiny after a long day out in the sun but I have big pores so this is going to happen. I definitely feel that my t-zone is improving and I'm hoping that adding in the occasional exfoliating session, my skin will become even less oily.

More healthy
I've always been quite lucky with my skin but I can see such a change in it over the last three weeks. It has a nice healthy glow now and feels and looks so much more refreshed. What do you think?

I'm not sure you can see such a difference in the picture above except for the fact that the sun has brought all my freckles out! I will also add that throughout all the pictures I have posted for this test, I have absolutely no make up on my face (apart from a little lip balm).

Let me know your thoughts and if you've had a positive or negative experience with these skincare products?

I think I can see the difference too. your skin definitely looks brighter and healthier. btw, I checked out my nearest TBS store to see if they have those mini products but unfortunately they didn't :(
