About Seaweed Mattifying Moisture Lotion SPF 15:

This lightweight moisturising lotion hydrates, controls excess oil and combats shine. It also has UVA/UVB protection

The Body Shop Seaweed Mattifying Moisture Lotion SPF15+oily skin moisturiser

It’s not easy to find a sunscreen that provides broad-spectrum UVA & UVB sun protection, is pleasant and non greasy for daily use.
This is a great moisturiser with SPF and I think it is a MUST have for summer.  When you have oily and sensitive skin and find something that won’t irritate the skin or cause breakouts you should stick to it.  There is nothing like a moisturiser that moisturises and mattifies the skin minus the shine.

You have to smooth only the amount of a pea onto your face and neck using an upward, circular motion. The beauty of this product is that it does control the oil to an extent and the shine. I don’t have a primer but I have used this instead and my makeup stays on for a good amount of time.  Since I don’t work outside of home I have not tested the staying power of the product for like 8 hours at a stretch but for about  2 to 3 hours. For about 3 hours its perfect.
