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.
