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:
  • Seaweed is renowned for its conditioning and hydrating benefits, while its non-oily nature makes it particularly suitable for normal to oily skin.

    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, their 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.
Massage in circular motions over the face and neck, using fingertips. Rinse off with water.

Best Exfoliator Ever!!!!

Pros

  • cleans black and white heads extremely well

Cons

    Best Uses

      Comments about The Body Shop Online Only Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator:

      This is better than the pore strips. This is very grainy and really exfoliates your skin. I've bought this twice already, I have dry/combo skin and sometimes it dries out my skin so I try to use it 1-2 times a week but overall is AMAZING! every time I use this my blackheads disapear for reals! I love this so so much

        Comments about The Body Shop Online Only Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator:

        I've used this once every other day for a few weeks, and my skin is so soft. I don't get terrible acne, maybe one of two spots on my forehead every once in awhile, but I have an issue with some milia on my forehead/cheeks and blackheads on my nose/chin. The milia on my cheeks have decreased dramatically over the time I've used this exfoliant. It smells great, makes your skin super soft and doesn't over exfoliate the skin.

        A Wonderful Exfoliant

            Gentle, moisturizing exfoliating cleanser. I believe the seaweed extract plays a great part in the miniaturization. It only takes a very small amount (about the size of a pea) to cleanse your face.

              I use this as my morning cleanser every day. I have VERY acne prone skin and this helps keeps the flare-ups at bay, but also doesn't dry my skin out. It smells great and just makes my skin feel really clean. I'm branching out to other products from this line now- love it!

I am very happy with my purchase because this product is the only thing that has helped clear up the milia on my face. It also cleared up a few blackheads on my nose. My skin feels so soft too!

                    Not only would I suggest this to a friend, I bought this for my sister and my mom who also have oily skin like I do! This stuff is amazing!! For me, I have found that its not intended to be used as a daily scrub so I use it 1-2 times a week. It does an excellent job of lathering up (and smells good!) and just leaving your skin feeling tighter and so much cleaner. It really does well at keeping my oiliness minimized! I did comment that this scrub does require several extra "rinses" to get it all off but I consider that a good thing with all of the greatness it does while its on your skin. :)

                        This product is really great for it's price. The bottle was a little smaller than I was expecting, but I'm surprised that it's lasted over four months and I'm still no where near running out. I use this exfoliator every day as part of my skin care routine, and overall I'm fairly impressed. It does a great job of sloughing away dry skin, and is gentle enough to use on a daily basis. It foams up a little bit, but not enough to be drying to the skin. If you're looking for an exfoliator to add in to your routine, it doesn't hurt to give this one a try.

                            Thank you for contacting The Body Shop. Seaweed Facial Exfoliator is recommended for combination to oily skin, and helps to deep clean blocked pores and remove excess oil. It should be fine for sensitive skin - however, you could also try Vitamin E Cream Exfoliator which gently exfoliates the skin, and for targeted treatment of blemishes, we would also recommend Tea Tree Oil.

                            Thank you for contacting The Body Shop. I would recommend using Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub because it helps to unclog pores and targets blemishes. Because your skin is dry, Drops of Youth Serum will provide a boost of nature for your skin, and increase cellular renewal which helps the texture of your skin.

It does not address hyperpigmentation. If you are concerned about dark spots, we recommend our Moisture Bright range, which can be found on our website.
