The Body Shop Difference: Wild-harvested seaweed, which comes from The Body Shop's 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.

How it works:
  • The Body Shop's Leave-on Seaweed products contain both wild-harvested Community Trade seaweed from Ireland and their adaptive, oil-balancing technology, so shiny zones are controlled all day.
  • Essential moisture from The Body Shop's wild-harvested seaweed is delivered to your skin where it needs it most.

    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, The Body Shop's seaweed is an entirely natural and sustainable ingredient that re-grows fully within two years.

    Vegetarian. Not Tested on Animals. Contains Community Fair Trade Ingredients. No Phthalates. No Triclosan. No GMO.

    Comments about The Body Shop Online Only Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream:

    This moisturizer is great for my difficult skin. While my forehead still gets a little oily throughout the day, the rest my face stays super balanced. I have enlarged pores around my nose and super oily T-zone. This works wonders. My skin feels so great after using this proceeding the cleansing gel that I often don't feel the need for make up!

      This product is a life saver. I've been searching for a moisturizer that didn't make me break out or make me oilier, and this one does the trick! Helps moisterize the dry areas on my face while controlling the oily areas (I have combination skin).

        Comments about The Body Shop Online Only Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream:

        I have combination/acne prone skin. This moisturizer made my face sickly dry, and I often could not move my face without it hurting. In the winter, my face can become dry around the nasal area, and once I put this product on, the areas burned and reddened more.

          Comments about The Body Shop Online Only Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream:

          I am in love with this moisturizer! I use it with the face wash. My face is smooth and soft. By the end of the day my face is normally an "oil slick" but I do not have that problem with this stuff any longer. I also don't use primer anymore. This stuff is the best and smells fantastic too!

          Holy Grail

          By Lizza

          Comments about The Body Shop Online Only Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream:

          I absolutely love this moisturizer. I have combination-oily skin, and this helps keep my skin hydrated and prevents my face from becoming an oil slick. It's very similar to Clinque's Dramatically Different Moisturizing Gel, but this doesn't have any heaviness to it. Plus, it's cheaper.

          I really wanted it to be perfect

          Comments about The Body Shop Online Only Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream:

          I do love this, but not as much as I hoped. It does leave a matte finish, but only for a couple hours. My makeup was breaking apart around my nose as it usually does even with this lotion. But I will continue to use it because it feels nice and smells fantastic. I have found a couple other products that help control oil in conjunction with this, so I will keep using it.

            Wow wow wow this stuff is amazing. I have incredibly oily skin, not exactly blemish-prone or particularly combination, just oily. I was weirded out by the fact that it is a "gel" cream--being a bit sticky to the touch and thicker and jelly-like--BUT what an amazing product! At 7am I cleanse my face, then tone, and follow with this gel cream and my foundation...and by 4pm (when my face is usually slick from oiliness) my face remains a smooth, matte finish with no shine. I. Am. In. Awe. Not to mention, my skin feels fantastic & the smell of this stuff is great. Holy Grail. Seriously.

            Comments about The Body Shop Online Only Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream:

            I like the seaweed products from the body shop, so I was excited to try this. It has a decent smell and absorbs quickly, leaving the skin matte. The problem is that the mattifying effect only lasted a couple of hours, even when using a primer. Overall, it is a good product, but if you have really oily skin then skip this.

              Comments about The Body Shop Online Only Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream:

              I have combination skin, & this was recommended to me by the staff at the Body Shop, who are usually very knowledgable about their products. But I didn't realize that my T zone area is REALLY oily, so this mattifies for a few hours & then the oil comes back. It's a lightweight gel like moisturizer; so it's not heavy. I think if you use it every day it'll last you about a month. But this isn't enough for me so I don't think I'll buy it again.

              NEW formulation SUCKS

              I used to love the old formulation of this so when it was onsale during cyber monday, I hoarded 4 of them!! ONLY to find out that the entire formulation was different. Instead of the old one which was very light, almost liquidy-watery texture which i loved, this new one was goopy and made my skin oily.
              This made me so sad because this was one of my HG products!!

              BUYER BEWARE! Bring back the old formulation!!
