Unfortunately this product didn't really do anything for me. I liked the fact that it feels lightweight and mattifies the face after application without overdrying the skin, but this doesn't last very long on my very oil skin. I think it's quite an expensive product considering how little it did for me and my oil control - I think this would probably be better suited for those with combination skin.

This product is crap! Please do not buy it. It made my skin more oily on my T-Zone and dried up my cheeks. When I wear my pressed powder, my face looks like an oil factory within 2 hours. I don't know how to explain how bad this product is. Don't waste your money. I usually like Body Shop but this is definitely the worst.

After I read wonderful reviews I decided to buy this product. Unfortunately this not work for me, it is has a light consistent and it is absorbed by the skin very quickly, but one hour after my skin become oily.

Mattifying? Yes.

Moisturizing? No.

This cream is super drying that I couldn't even use it without it drying my skin. I expected it to moisturize and dry to like a powder finish but no.

It feels like a cream with a lot of alcohol and I think everyone by now, knows how drying that can be.

I've tried Garnier Moisture Rescue Cream and Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturizer and this is the best moisturizer I have used. I have acne-prone skin and I used to never use a moisturizer because it only made things worse. I've updated my skin-care routine and I'm glad that this moisturizer doesn't seem to make me break out and is moisturizing enough to counteract the drying effects of acne treatment products. It's so light and feels like you have put nothing on. It's absolutely amazing.

I really love this day cream. It doesn't feel heavy on my skin like a lot of moisturisers do and it does have a mattifying effect on my skin. My skin tone has become a lot more even and my skin is brighter and healthier since I started the sea weed range. I would recommend this for anyone with combination skin like myself!

I absolutely LOVE this moisturiser! It is a little on the pricier side for me personally, so I recently tried a cheaper line, but I will be switching back to this one. It's perfect for my skin - leaves it soft & hydrated but matte, oil-free & has a lovely soft scent.

While I love the matching face wash, this day cream leaves a lot to be desired. After application I still feel the need to apply a moisturizer, that defeats the purpose of this product.
