Review: Green Angel Seaweed Body Lotion with Neroli & Chamomile

Seaweed body lotion? Hmm, interesting! Without second thoughts, I opted for this one. Sent from the UK by The Blue Polar Bear, a sweet fellow blogger here on WordPress and runs an online store, the Honey Beeswax. One of the charms of this store is that they give back to society. Aside from the array of interesting products they’re selling, it’s one good reason to patronize them. Moving on to this product, it’s quite fascinating to know that the organic seaweeds used to formulate this lotion were hand harvested from Irish coastal waters. I’d like to hear your views on that.

It’s creamy and smells like nature.

PROS

  • Good customer service! No need for further explanation. You’ll understand it as soon as you place your order.
  • It arrived in Japan in about a week and in perfect condition. Unlike with my previous horrible experience, this was placed in a small carton box filled with stuff for protection and printed with “fragile”.
  • The packaging is carefully designed and hygienic which impressed me a lot. Printed in its box are some facts about the product, branding, directions, ingredients, and a barcode which tell you a lot of it as a legit product. No matter how small a company is, these things MUST be present. Would it be logical to say so? It also came with a sweet message written on a small piece of paper.

    What a thoughtful company!

    classy design

  • I intentionally twisted the cap to open and had a look at the inside and boy was I impressed again. The plastic-like bottle was full! So you’re really paying for a full bottle.
  • For me, 2 full pumps are enough to cover the entire body.
  • No allergic reactions
  • Easy to apply
  • No sticky feeling
  • No burning/ tingling sensation
  • Dries up quickly
  • The smell doesn’t linger.
  • It’s pretty moisturizing. I can tell because as soon as it’s absorbed, it leaves my skin looking glossy and the tightness due to the cold weather disappears. I wish my camera could clearly show it.

CONS

  • The scent is new to me so I’m still getting used to it. Thus I only use it before bedtime for now. You can tell it’s from the coast or something with a little bit of lavender. It’s a bit strong for me. Good thing that it just goes away after a few minutes like I mentioned above.
  • If I use more than 2 pumps, it takes time to dry and feels a bit heavy on my skin.

FINAL THOUGHTS

I’ll finish the whole bottle and if given a chance, I’ll purchase it for two reasons. One, I like how it hydrates my skin and two, I want to support their charity work. Kudos to the company!
