Body Shop Tea Tree range review

DSCF2129.jpgEver since the joys of puberty I have been blessed with acne! Over the past 10 years I have tried everything from clean & clear to doctor prescribed creams and tablets but nothing has ever completely cleared my skin!

For christmas I was given 4 pieces from the tea tree collection at the Body Shop and FOR ONCE it seems to be making a difference! For reference here is a photo from 2 years ago and now. As well as getting my nose pierced and sorting my eyebrows out, my forehead has completely cleared up. I still have bad scars on my cheeks and breakouts on my chin (especially when I’m stressed) but as a whole it is a lot better! Now I know I am wearing make up in the second picture and not the first but just believe me when I say the difference in my skin is insane!skin.jpg

The pieces that I received from the Body shop range is the 3-in-1 Wash Scrub and Mask, the Skin Clearing Clay Mask, the Pore Minimiser and the Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution. 

3-in-1 Wash Scrub and Mask (£8.50)DSCF2130.jpg

I use this as a scrub everyday in the shower (because it is a pain to wash off in the sink) and I find it really gets deep into my pores. My skin is left feeling super soft and a lot less rough. I find if I put this on in the morning when a spot is brewing under the surface of my skin it definitely decreases in size over the day! The only downside, as I earlier mentioned, is it is really difficult to wash off, especially if you use it as a mask, but do it in the shower and you will have no problems

I put this on 2-3 times a week as soon as I get out the shower. It does make you look like shrek but it goes on as a mousey texture and then starts to dry hard. You leave it on for 10-15mins and then wash it off. Now when I say my skin feels smooth after I mean it feels like a fresh little babies bottom. I can also see a noticeable change in the size of my spots after I take this mask off. One problem I have found with this is after an hour or so my skin feels really dry (I’m guessing because it is drying out spots) but I would just recommend putting a moisturiser on once you’ve taken it off.

Whether you’re meant to do this or not I don’t know but I use this as a primer before I put my make up on. I have really tried to limit the amount I wear foundation but I feel like this puts on a protective layer first whilst also putting some more tea tree on my face to dry out those pesky spots! It does have quite a tacky feel when you’ve put it on your skin so I find it does actually work well as a primer to keep make up on for longer.

Out of the whole range I have this is the only one that I question. If I’m honest I just don’t think it does anything for me! You’re meant to put a few drops of it on but I just find it leaves my skin feeling quite oily and nothing seems to change when I do put it on. I have just recently purchased the Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner (£6) from the range to substitute for this, seeing as it is half the price for twice the amount, so I will see how that goes.

There are my honest reviews of this range, have you ever tried it? or do you have any other skin saviours? I am going to carry on using these products and just pray that my skin cooperates!

    I always had problems with my skin also, but it got to the point I couldn’t do anything about it. So I purchased La Roche Posay Effaclar tinted and normal moisturizer and I see that it is helping with healing process of my acne scars which is the only product that ever helped. xx

    I’ve heard tea tree is supposed to be amazing for acne, I’m so glad you’ve found something that worked for you! ♥️

    I never really consider looking in the bodyshop for anything, I should pay it a visit!

    I have problematic skin, have done for years and I’ve also found products with teatree or witch hazel really do help clear things up! I’ glad you’ve found something that works for you, not to pricey either (BONUS) !

    I love and swear by The Body Shop’s Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution from their Tree Tea range. I use it every morning and night and I love it!! I’ve just posted a blog post where I mention it as one of my skin saviours so it’s interesting to see somebody with a completely different opinion on it!
