THE SKINCARE RANGE YOUR OILY + SPOT PRONE SKIN NEEDS



Before I discovered The Body Shop's blemish-banishing and skin-mattifying skincare range, I was utterly stuck in a rut. Excess oil? Check. Spots? Check. 

When I tried out my first product from the tea tree collection, I knew I had hit a goldmine. Halleluja! Since testing their facial wash way back in September, I've brought several other additions into my daily routine, and I can't get enough. These prods go to show you don't have to break the bank to get incredible results.

Each product is infused with powerful tea tree oil from the "foothills of Mount Kenya", which helps combat excess oil whilst clearing the skin

SPOILER ALERT: this stuff is babin'.
 

Skin Clearing Facial Wash.

This was the one that got me hooked onto the range. It has a classic gel face wash consistency - quick and easy - making it ideal for daily use. Plus, it's such a skin pick-me-up; when I lather up with this, my complexion instantly feels totally refreshed and purified, as well as looking shine-free, which you guys know I'm always down for.

Tea Tree Oil.

For when I have a particular spot attack, I turn to this bad boy, as it's perfect for targetting specific areas. Either apply with a cotton bud, or cotton pad, and over night this reduces redness, and sends your skin on the road to recovery. A quick word of advice though; there are two on the spot applications in the range - this pure oil, and a targeted gel. Not only is the classic oil cheaper, but after having a chat with the staff, it also has a higher tea tree oil content, so you can zap those zits more effectively!

Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser.

This foaming cleanser comes out of the same envelope of the facial wash, but I actually prefer this to it's counterpart. Overall, it's a lot more mild and gentler on the skin than the wash, yet still delivers the same fresh feeling and matte finish. Not to mention that my inner 5 year old screams in delight when it foams from the pump (how sad is that?)!

3-in-1 Wash, Scrub + Mask.

 Nothing better than a multipurpose product, eh? Although I would deem it too thick and grainy to be a run-of-the-mill face wash, it's an amazing clay mask and scrub. When applied, it gives you a peculiar cooling, and tingling sensation - it really feels like it's doing something, if you catch my drift. I use this once a week, as a mask, and leaving it for 10 minutes to dry. Then, when it's time to rinse it off, I add water and massage into my face like you would with a scrub. That way I get the best of both worlds with the deeply purifying effects of the mask and the exfoliating properties of the scrub.

As well as reducing excess oil and pimples, it really gets under your skin unclogging and tightening those pores whilst lessening the appearance of blackheads.

  4. I have the toner and the facial wash but I've only been using the toner recently and it dries out my skin quiet a lot, even though I have combination! The tea tree oil sounds interesting, it's always nice to know which is the cheaper option too haha!

  5. Whilst many skin care ranges offer alternatives depending on your skin type, it is often the case that there isn to alot of difference between the formulas for oily skin, dry skin and combination skin alterntives. My link

  8. This sounds like a range of products I need! I've heard good things about the Tea Tree range before, but never really looked in depth about the products - the scrub/mask sounds great for a weekly clean, and if tea tree oil does help reducing pimples it can be a big helper with period breakouts I guess! Thanks for sharing this review, that's super helpful :)

  10. My skin is having a bit of a meltdown at the moment (as is the rest of me ha) so this range seems like it could come in handy. I might just buy pure tea tree oil as a natural spot 'zapper' !
