Skincare Review: Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream

The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream

I made some purchases during The Body Shop’s 40% off sale and decided to get this mattifying cream. I read tons of great reviews and was very excited to try this out. I have the other Seaweed Mattifying lotion but that one has SPF in it so I didn’t find it to be mattifying at all.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock

I think sunblock is essential in everyone’s skin care routine. It is hard to find products that contain SPF and won’t turn my face into an oil-slick.

Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock is described as feeling “like you have nothing on, but offers broad-spectrum protection to …

I finally decided to whip out my free birthday mascara and try this sucker out! As part of Ulta’s Rewards Program, you will receive a voucher in your email during your birthday month for a free full size Calvin Klein mascara.
