Humid HUMID humidddd weather

I have combination skin and where I live right now the humidity is ridiculous and is making it worse. Sometimes i feel like it looks like make up is melting off and creasing on my nose regardless of primer, spray, and powder. I am currently trying out a new products that I had purchased from The Body Shop. Those two are: the seaweed mattifying day cream ($16 1.7 oz) and seaweed mattifying moisture lotion ($18 1.69 fl oz)

Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream:
An easily absorbed, non-clogging, oil-free, hydrating moisture cream. Leaves the skin feeling fresh, clean, soft and supple with a shine-free, matte complexion

Seaweed Mattifying Lotion: 
An easily absorbed non-clogging, oil-free, hydrating and cooling moisture lotion with a sun protection factor of 15. Innovative technology controls excess sebum and shine while delivering essential moisture to areas most in need.

My Opinions:
Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream:
I don't like the texture of it. It is watery and it takes a while for it to dry on my skin. This combined with the lotion does help the oil, however the day cream alone does not do anything for my skin. The product does not smell like seaweed which is good. A little of this cream goes a long way because of the liquid consistency. Will I purchase again? Maybe. I give this product a: 3 out of 5.
For consumer reviews:

Seaweed Mattifying Lotion: 
The lotion I favor the most out of the two. It has a watery consistency but it dries right when the lotion is spread evenly on to the face which allows you to use a little product for your whole face. I used this alone and it helped, but of course nothing can make your face completely matte for long time especially in this crazy humidity where I live. The day cream combine with the mattifying lotion seemed to work just as fine as the lotion works on its own. I will be purchasing this again. I give this product a 4 out 5.
