The Body Shop | Tea Tree Skincare Kit

The Body Shop is not a shop I visit that often and I'm not really sure why. But back in April I decided to pop in and see what they had to offer. My skin has been a bit naughty recently with a few odd breakouts here and there, so I decided to take a look at their Tea Tree range. Now I'm sure most of you know that tea tree is very good for clearing up your skin and getting rid of those pesky spots. One thing that can be off putting is of course, the smell. It is very strong but that doesn't bother me.
The Skin Clearing Facial Wash and Skin Clearing Toner caught my eyes straight away and I was going to pick them up for £5 each, but noticed they had this cute little set for only £10. This way I got to try the two products I was after plus the Skin Clearing Lotion and the Tea Tree Oil.
I apply these in order as seen here every morning and evening but I only use the oil when I have a blemish!

Skin Clearing Facial Wash | I wet my face and squeeze some onto my fingers. I then massage it in and it slightly forms a foam. When finished I gently pat my skin dry and it leaves my skin feeling deeply cleansed and fresh. When using this be very careful not to get this in your eyes as it will sting. (Yes, speaking from experience here!)

Skin Clearing Toner | This toner has mattifying powders in the bottom which you have to shake to activate! I apply a few drops onto a cotton wool ball and sweep over my face and neck. This gets rid of any left over dirt or makeup that the facial wash might of missed.

Skin Clearing Lotion | I squeeze about a pea size onto my fingers and gently massage into my skin. It quickly absorbs into the skin but can leave your skin feeling a bit tight ,so I apply my normal moisturiser over the top.

Tea Tree Oil | This is perfect for when you have that pesky spot suddenly appear. I carefully dab some of this oil, with clean fingers, directly onto the spot and within a day, the swelling and redness has gone down.

I have to say that I am very impressed with these items and can see them being staple products in my skincare routine. I also enjoyed trying these out in the smaller versions first as it gave me the opportunity to give them a good going before making decisions on them and buying the full sized bottles.

Have you used the Tea Tree range from The Body Shop before?

  1. I've heard mostly good things about this range, but haven't tried it before as my skin is better suited to the Vitamin E range, which I bought the set of. £10 is definitely worth it to try the products out! x

  2. These sound lovely, I've never tried tea tree things before but these sound good and great for the price too :)
