REVIEW: The Body Shop Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask

Hey guys this is the second to last review for the seaweed line at The Body Shop. I haven't reviewed that many masks so I hope you guys enjoy my attempt at this. If you want to know more about this product, please read on for the rest of the review and more pictures.

I'm not really a mask person because most of the times I am just too lazy to dedicate the time needed to sit there and really not be able to leave my room. Also I have a hard time convincing myself to venture out when it comes to masks because I have really only tried one and that was one that I fell in love with. I liked this mask because it left me skin very smooth, and silky. The reason I won't continue to use this mask is because I prefer products that are more multi-tasking. Like my HG mask Mint Julep. Since I am blemish prone I need something that will treat my skin for the blemishes and my large pores or any other issues I have. I would use this whenever my skin wasn't as irritated from blemishes and it was so refreshing on my face. I heard clay masks where supposed to be good for blemished skin but I did not notice a difference as far as that goes. I did notice it helped balance out my skin though. It claims to clarify the complexion, but I saw no benefit to that.

Unfortunately I just don't find myself reaching for this as much as I used to. It currently just sits at the bottom of my beauty graveyard. I don't have any friends who enjoy beauty products as much as I do so there is no one to give it to. That’s all I have for this review, so talk to you next time. Enjoy! :)

If you do plan on checking out the body shop I very much recommend getting a membership card with them! You will definitely not regret it. It's a $10 yearly charge and you will save so much money on discounts/sales/events and occasionally even free products when you rack up points.
