An Affordable Clean Beauty Obsession!

the seaweed bath co review | the stripe

I have said this before but one of the best parts of my job is getting to try all of the beauty products that come in. It’s fun, but also something I take really seriously. One frustration though is that oftentimes I will get sent something and fall in love with it; only to learn that it costs hundreds of dollars. I know a lot of the products I feature here are expensive but believe me when I say it – I am trying!

Enter The Seaweed Bath Company. A box full of their products arrived and I immediately fell in love with the line without knowing much about the brand. The body products (especially anything in the Awaken fragrance family which is minty and invigorating + has a little bit of Palo Santo in it) are so great. I looove the body wash and the firming detox body cream leaves my skin super smooth + buttery. And when I did my research on the ingredients, I was happy to see that they passed Think Dirty’s test as clean. But when I found out that the line is sold at Target and nothing is over $20, I might have actually fist-pumped the air. A line I love, that’s mostly natural, AND affordable? THANK YOU.

I mentioned before that I love the body products. The shower gel, body scrub, + firming body cream are total winners. But the real winner in the group is actually the face scrub, which is AMAZING and one of the best scrubs I’ve ever tried. The texture is very similar to Kate Somerville’s Exfoli-Kate (another old favorite of mine) in that it is really concentrated with fine grains, so you really feel like you are polishing your skin. I have been gently scrubbing my face in the shower for this every other morning (using circular motions for 1-2 minutes) and have noticed a dramatic improvement in my skin’s texture. It’s a good one.

I will say that the bath soaks were not for me. They’re infused with essential oils which smell amazing but you can really smell the seaweed. Bathing in seaweed is sooo good for your skin (especially before a big event – it tightens everything up, so you’ll look fab in your dress), but I just can’t stand the smell.

  3. Great Post! I have been searching for cleaner, more natural skincare products and I have seen the Seaweed Bath Co products but never tried them before. I am definitely going to give the face scrub a go, thanks for the tips!

    So glad you’re spreading the word — I am TOTALLY on board with this brand, too. It is so tough to find affordable clean beauty products. Love the detox scrub and the detox soap bar — I don’t know the last time I used a bar of soap and my boyfriend keeps stealing it, so I ordered two more! Just started using the gel face cleanser and like it. The body creams are SUPER thick and moisturizing.

    One complaint is that I don’t love the flip top cap packaging because it’s hard to close, but it won’t stop me.

    Ooh, can’t wait to check it out. Hopefully plenty of products without mint since I am allergic. Perfect timing for the face scrub since I just ran out and wanted to try something new!

  7. This packaging gives me major heart eyes!
    Also, very interesting about bathing in seaweed. I’m not sure I could take the smell either, but sounds like something worth trying!

    • Yeah the smell is pretty bad but I have heard really good things about what it does for your skin!

    I just recently tried this brand too! I love the bath soaks, and the firming face mask. I am looking forward to trying more of their products. Clean ingredients, super-affordable, AND effective? It’s the winning trifecta for me!
