Body Shop Mini Haul

Technically I've been on a spending ban for the last couple of months (Christmas presents aside), but yesterday I decided I needed a treat. So after my morning exam (which went quite well) I went to the Body Shop to pick up a couple of things I'd been eyeing up.

I wanted to try out some of the Seaweed products because my skin has been all icky and oily recently :( I needed a new toner and moisturiser so I picked them up in seaweed form.

 Firstly is the alcohol free Seaweed clarifying toner. I've only used this three times, but I'm already loving it. It feels refreshing and I can definitely see that my face looks less shiny after using it. Because I'm a marine biologist nerd I had a look at what seaweed was used for this product, and it was Fucus vesiculosus which I had to do a report on a couple of weeks ago...

Next is my new love. I wish I'd found this product sooner, it's wonderful. The seaweed mattifying moisture lotion with SPF 15. This really is mattifying, and it lasts. Not quite all day, but a good 5 - 6 hours. It feels so lovely to put on, my skin feels moisturised and not clogged down by anything heavy. It's lovely lovely lovely, and has SPF 15 which is always a good thing.

In other news I'm going home on Saturday :D I'm so excited! I get to see my darling little animals, be in a heated house and get free food ^ - ^ Oh and see my family too... :P
