If you've been following Born to Buy lately you will probably know that I've been switching up my skincare. I've done a couple of hauls (here and here) lately featuring the new products I've picked up and now I'm putting them all to the test. I recently picked up the The Body Shop's Aloe Gentle Facial Wash and, while I wasn't a fan of that, I have been really liking their Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash.
The Body Shop's Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash is a gel cleanser that can be foamed into a lather that's satisfying enough to make me feel like I'm really getting the job of cleansing done. Some people aren't a fan of gel cleansers, I know, but I honestly feel like they're the only thing that does a good job of cleansing my combination to oily skin, even though I know that's probably not the case.
I have been using the Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash for two, almost three, months now and I'm really enjoying it. I feel like it cleanses my skin well without leaving it feeling tight or dehydrated. It removes excess make up and oil from the day and I've also found that it's gentle enough to use day and I night. I'm currently using it in the morning only so I can test another face wash, however I was previously using it morning and night and had no issues.
My only with this cleanser is, once again, that it has Menthol in it. I just don't like the idea of menthol on the face. I didn't actually realise this until I read the ingredients, though now I know I do notice a cooling feeling that could only be attributed to menthol. It does a good job of cleansing so I'll continue to use it, though I might not be completely opposed to replacing it in the future.
The Seaweed Deep Cleansing Facial Wash from The Body Shop retails for $18.95 for a 100mL tube which I don't think is that bad!
Have you tried this or any other product from The Body Shop? What's your go-to cleanser?
