Shiny T-Zone No More!


Seaweed clarifying toner 200ml- £8.00 The Body Shop

After continuously flitting from product to product, this is the first toner I’ve ever repurchased, it really is THAT good! As I have combination skin, previously my t-zone used to be so shiny and get quite oily as the day went on. Although I found a powder to stop this happening (see my Jurlique finishing powder post) I was still on the lookout for products to help balance out my skin, especially as recently I’ve developed a hatred of wearing foundation and powder during the days. I never thought this would happen, but I now definitely favour a bit of concealer and bronzer over a face full of daytime makeup and prefer a more natural look- oh how I’ve changed! Anyway, it is down to this toner that I’ve been able to face the days (excuse the pun!) barefaced.

It’s one of The body shop’s best sellers, and has over 138 reviews giving it an all round 5 star rating, which is exactly what enticed me to try it. It hasn’t disappointed! After using it day and night and finishing my first bottle, the main and most amazing benefit is that specifically my chin and nose no longer get oily or ridiculously shiny. This is even without mattifying creams, cosmetics etc, in it’s natural state the toner seems to have sorted my combination skin problems out!

As it is clarifying, it’s so refreshing and cooling and leaves your skin feeling cleaner than ever. Before trying it the one doubt I had was that it could possibly be quite drying and affect my normal skin areas (mainly my cheeks) by completely drying them out- how wrong could I have been! My skin has never been so soft, yet its still managed to get rid of my shiny t-zone areas.


Anyone with combination, or even oily skin- I really couldn’t recommend this enough! It has transformed my skin and I’d go as far to say that its made my skin switch from being combination, to normal (or that’s how it now appears anyway!). It’s also available in a handy travel size for a mere £3 so ideal for trying it out if you wish before buying the full sized bottle.
