Hello everyone, welcome to another post.
Today, i’m going to talk all about a very amazing range from The Body Shop, I am of course talking about their Tea Tree range.
I was going through a very bad skin day, well month really, and was recommended the range by a very wonderful YouTuber, Estee aka Essie Button and thought I would give it a go.
I bought four of their products, and I thought I would tell you what I think about them.
The products I bought were, the Facial Wash, the Tea Tree Oil, the Squeaky Clean Scrub, and the Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser.
Lets start with something basic, the smell. It’s your general Tea Tree scent. If you haven’t smelled Tea Tree before, the only way I can describe it is chocolate lime. I know that sounds really strange, but if you can remember the taste of the chocolate lime boiled sweets, well that’s what it smells of. The smell can be a bit overpowering to begin with, what am I saying, the smell is overpowering, you can’t miss it. Don’t worry though, you do get used to it, I mean i’m still not in love with the smell, but it’s not a bad smell.
I’ll stop rambling on about the smell, and move onto each individual product I baught. I’ll start with the Facial Wash.
If you’re looking for the Facial Wash in store, you need to look for the dark olive green bottle, it also looks exactly like the Shower Cream bottles so be careful. It comes in only one size, 250ml, and it’ll set you back £5, it’s not that bad of a price for this little bottle of joy.
The texture is a bit weird though, it’s part gel, part water. I know that makes no sense, but that’s what it feels like.
You only need a 50p sized amount to wash your entire face, so a 250ml bottle lasts a long while, which reminds me I need to purchase a new bottle.
Once you have it in your hand, just apply it to your wet face as usual. Once it touches your face the texture seems to change to all water. If you hadn’t just put it on yourself, you’d swear there was nothing on your skin. I usually leave it on for about 2 to 5 minutes, depending on how grubby I think my skin feels. Then all you have to do is rinse it off. I will say this is not for the dry skinned people out there, as it does dry the absolute hell out of your skin. i would however recommend it to people with oilier skin, like me. It does kind of make your skin a bit tight, some people like it, some hate it, I don’t mind it.
I highly recommend this to anyone who has oily skin and is in the market for a new face wash.
Let me move on to the Tea Tree Oil.
This one comes in a very tiny viled bottle, it’s so small that you only get 10ml. It’s also not cheap, at £7 for 10ml it isn’t that good of a deal. I have found cheaper alternatives from other stores, but that’s for another post. The best usage for the oil is to instantly dry up spots, which is exactly what it does.
The best way to use this one is with a cotton pad. Unscrew the lid, which is one of those medicine type lids. Then dab a little of the oil on your pad, then just swipe over the spot and there you go, it’s gone within a few days, plus if you see a spot coming up, do the same as i just said, and it should stop it dead in its tracks.
Next up the Squeaky Clean Scrub.
This comes in a squeezy bottle, a bit like a traditional shower gel bottle. For £6.50 you get 100ml. For the price, and amount, it’s an ok deal. This one is one of those products that look meh, but once you’ve used it, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
This is one of those gental kind of scrubs, it has particles but they’re the soft non abrasive kind. This is one that you can use on a more daily basis. I use a more harsher scrub once a week for a deeper clean, but that’s for another post. I highly recommend this. As the name suggests it gives you a very clean feeling, without stripping your skin of all its moisture.
Here’s the last product, the Skin Cleansing Foaming Cleanser.
This comes in a cylindrical bottle with a very handy pump. You get 150ml for the ok price of £5.
The texture is very liquidy as this is more of a water consistancy. This one has a very magical property. You only need one pump worth of product for your face. Once you add it to your wet face, it becomes the most creamy foamy thing in the world.
The cleanser is really meant for removing your makeup. As you can guess, i don’t use it for that. I use it just to give my face a nice cleanse at the end of the day. I use the wash in the morning, then I use this just to get rid of all the yuk on my face at the end of the day. Strangely, unlike the rest of the range, this one doesn’t make my face really tight, which is fantastic for the night, you don’t want to not be able to move your face at night. It’s one of those amazing products, that you think ah it won’t work for me, or it looks rubbish, but then it easily becomes one of your holy grail products.
Well there you go, my round up of the Tea Tree range from The Body Shop. As I said some of them make your face a bit dry and tight, which is why I would always suggest moisturizing afterwards.
