The Body Shop Seaweed Clarifying Toner Review


Hello IMBB beauties,

I will be reviewing here today my absolutely favorite these days, The Body Shop seaweed clarifying toner. I have been using this toner for almost 3 weeks now and I am sure I can put forth a decent review .



An alcohol-free, refreshing and purifying toner.

Instantly and effectively conditions, purifies and refreshes the skin, removing excess traces of make-up and cleanser.Leaves skin feeling fresh, purified, looking shine-free, and better prepared to absorb moisturizing products in the Seaweed range.

The toner comes in a sturdy plastic bottle with a flip cap on top, which makes it very easy to use & handle.
Since it’s a see through packaging , its easy to judge how much you are left with /used 😀 😀

This has to be one of the best toners I have used till date and I am very sure that I am going to stick to it for a while.
Initially, when I started using it, I felt that it was a bit sticky on my face and my face got a little greasy too. I wondered as it is supposedly meant for oily skin, so it should not be making my skin greasy .Then I thought I might be using a bit too much of it than the required quantity. So the following day, I took a few drops of it on a cotton swab and just swiped across my face and neck , and my it didn’t make my face sticky at all then So, I have found that you should not too much of it for 1 time use . The toner is really refreshing and thus, I find it great for summers. It has a slight pleasant fragrance which I like. One thing I really like a lot about this toner is that it takes out /removes even the tiniest speck of dirt /makeup left on the face (even after cleansing.)
Now coming to how it has worked on my skin and what all issues it has dealt.
• I see a major reduction in my blackheads and whiteheads
• My post acne marks/ other blemishes have cleared a lot.
• Slight reduction in pore size
Overall, I am quite in love with this toner and I am definitely repurchasing this one

Pros of The Body Shop SeaWeed Clarifying Toner:

• Works really well in reducing blackheads & whiteheads.
• Reduces spots/marks/blemishes
• Slightly reduces the appearance of pores
• Will suit well to oily/ combination skin.

Cons of The Body Shop SeaWeed Clarifying Toner:
• It has parabens.
• If you expect your pore size to reduce drastically, or to a great extent, you may not like it.
• Some of us may find it a little expensive @ INR 545 for 200 ML .

IMBB RATING – 3.5 on 5 (-1.5 for all the above listed cons)

  15. You know nuuufuuur,I was using toner religiously for last 6 months and I didnt notice anything drastic in my skin,so I chucked it..its been 3 weeks and my pore size has got enormous which in turn has increased black head 😥 😥 😥 😥 😥

    Now I am back to toner..will buy this for sure once I finish my huge fab india tea tree waala toner :hihi: :hihi: :hihi: :hihi:

    1. ritika, i left using toners last yr..
      but this year i started again, and i can clearly see the diffrnce 🙂

      oh dat fab india wala bhi good hai, i bought it, but 1 frend ne le lia 😐 😐 😐

  16. I love TSB toners & have been currently using the Tree tea one which is also pretty good.But now it’s getting over. I’ll look out for this.Thanks for the review :thanks:

    1. yeass, i have heard a lot abt TBS tea tree one too 🙂 I may get that too 🙂
