I really like the Body Shop's tea tree skin care line. I regularly use the facial wash and mask. I was kind of underwhelmed by the lotion though. It has a strong tea tree smell just like the other products, but I found this just doesn't work as a lotion. I would have to apply this product, and then another layer of different lotion to actually moisturize my face. It does keep breakouts at bay, but only if you use this product consistently. Don't expect to use it once breakouts happen, because it doesn't seem to be effective that way. I won't purchase this product again, but for someone willing to use it regularly, I would say go for it.
I finished the first bottle of this cream and loved it so much I bought 2 more on Body Shop's Buy 3 Get 3 Free online sale. It has definitely helped keep my breakouts at bay and it's marvelous because it has a matte oil-free finish on my skin. If you have dry patches of skin though, you will probably find you need to layer this lotion with a heavier lotion just to help moisturize dry problem areas. I just add a dab of Jamieson's Vitamin E moisturizing lotion to my dry spots when they occur.
I'm a big fan of the tea tree oil line at the Body Shop and this was definitely a good buy for me. I got this lotion during a promotional sale for about 10 Canadian dollars. I was upset about the size of the bottle, as I originally thought I was going to get more product. However, with this lotion, a little goes a LONG way. It's really lightweight, but it has some drying properties, so I would double it up with a basic lightweight moisturizer. The scent is a bit stronger than other products of the same line, but I enjoy the smell of tea tree oil. This lotion immediately dries and is very convenient to use on acne prone areas like my forehead.
I'm not a fan of tea tree oil. This lotion burned when applied and felt drying. My face didn't feel moisturized. Pus, it did nothing for breakouts
I have always had very sensitive, acne prone skin. The tea tree body shop products have been amazing for my skin. During the winter I use this clearing lotion right before bed, and I love the results. While my face isn't completely cleared up (that would take a miracle!), it does take care of sudden zits without irritating the skin around them. Would definitely recommend this to someone looking for a budget friendly face lotion to help with acne.
I love the Body Shop , they have so many awesome products. Tea Tree has always been a great product I have used off and on over the years since my early 20's. I've always loved tea tree everything, but to find it in a moisturizer is like a gift from heaven. Works great on blemishes and keeps skin looking and feeling great. I only wish it was a bit bigger size for the money as I would like to use it every day! I use it with the tea tree face wash and the acne stick - could not be happier! Thank you, Body Shop, for your amazing quality products!
this is my favorite facial lotion ever. it feels so tingly (in the good way) & refreshing. it's nice to know that while i enjoy it i'm doing great things for my skin. it absorbs in less than a minute, which i love. i use this after i wash my face in the morning (i use the night lotion before bed at night). sometimes i will use a more hydrating moisturizer before i apply my makeup (like clinique's dramatically different), something that i know won't affect my skin (cause breakouts, irritation, etc). this lotion has certainly improved my skin and hasn't dried me out at all like other blemish clearing products do. love it.
