I’ve always been a fan of The Body Shop and their products because they always seem to work and they are a cruelty free brand. Oh and their packaging is always on point haha. I’ve seen a lot of bloggers talk about the tea tree range and how good it is so I jumped on the band wagon and decided to pick some of the range up from The Body Shop.
I have to admit I haven’t been looking after my skin lately. I usually leave my skin care routine until night time as I find that the easiest after taking all my makeup off but sometimes I just can’t be bothered with it all.. I’m just so lazy when I’m tired, I just don’t want to do anything but after seeing my skin get worse I knew it was time to change my routine.
The tea tree range is to target blemished skin and although I don’t suffer massively with blemishes now I did when I was younger so I just thought seeing the hype around the range I couldn’t not try it out. I’m a sucker for buying products when I don’t need them and I’m pretty sure that’s where all my money goes.. The range is super affordable which I absolutely love. The products seem like they should be so much more expensive as they work so well.
Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser
The first product I want to talk about is the skin clearing foaming cleanser which is only £6.00 for a 150ml bottle. First off, anything that comes in a foam is a winner for me as it’s super easy to put the product onto the skin. I use this daily as apart of my skin care routine and wouldn’t be without it now.
I normally use this just after washing my face and massage into my skin and then I will use the skin clearing mattifying toner just after. My skin can get oily but this reduces oiliness and shine which I love, Oh and apparently it helps to prevent skin conditions like acne. It leaves my skin feeling so fresh and super clean and I have had this bottle for a while now and so its super long-lasting, I honestly couldn’t fault this at all.
The next product I picked up from the range was the mattifying lotion and this has made the biggest difference to my skin. I can honestly say this is the best daytime lotion I have ever tried. I usually go for simple skin care as my skin is quite sensitive and although I love their products after trying the mattifying lotion I’m converted. It’s so light and leaves my skin shine free.
I use it everyday depending on if I’m going out I will put it on before my makeup in the morning or if I’m just staying at home I’ll put it on when doing my skin care routine at night. I usually just take a tiny amount and rub into my skin, focusing on my t zone area.
The lotion absorbs so quick leaving my skin completely matte and super soft. It sets my foundation so perfectly on my skin and it’s so long-lasting. Additionally, this lotion helps close your pores. The lotion has a really easy travel size packaging and if you only buy one thing from the tea tree range I would totally recommend this one, you won’t regret it. This has honestly helped my skin SO much and I wouldn’t be without it now.
Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner
The final product is the skin clearing mattifying toner and this was probably the product I was most excited about trying as I’d heard such good things about it although when I started using this I wasn’t a fan of it at all.
I normally use this after cleansing my skin to remove and traces of makeup left but when I was putting it around the eye area it did sting a little bit although I’ve always had that with skin care products on my skin, I don’t know if that’s normal or it’s just me? but after a few more uses I got used to it and the stinging stopped a little (thankfully).
My skin must be a little sensitive around the eye area I’m guessing. I forgot to shake the bottle before using for the first time which was a mistake as the powder is at the bottom of the liquid so it didn’t really activate. I don’t suffer massively with breakouts but I do like to try and prevent them as much as possible and this product has helped keep them to a minimum. My skin does appear to look clearer and more refreshed after using this.
So after being a little hesitant about these products I will be re-purchasing as my face feels SO soft after using everything and I can’t recommend them enough. Even though I said at the start of this post that I don’t suffer massively with blemishes I’m pretty sure this range from The Body Shop would help a lot if you do. I hope you enjoyed this little review and if you’ve tried the tea tree range from The Body Shop before let me know what you think!
