My journey into the world of makeup and beauty started with skincare. Looking for skin care solutions for blemishes, I stumbled upon beauty blogs for the first time and that’s how it all started. One of the first products that I used to clear up my blemishes was The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil.
The products from this range helped clear my breakouts in the subsequent months and since then, I always have a bottle of the iconic Tea Tree Oil in my stash! Here’s a little roundup of some of my favorites from the Tea Tree Range as it celebrates its 20th anniversary ~
The Tea Tree range contains a total of 13 tea tree oil infused products ranging from face wash, toner, lotion to face mask, scrub, BB cream and the little bottle of the Tea Tree Oil, of course. I’ve tried several of these products and the ones I absolutely love are –
1. The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil (Rs 695)
This potent purifying oil is an excellent spot treatment for blemishes and helps reduce breakouts from the first application itself. Whenever I get a fresh breakout, I like to dab this over the eruption before bedtime and in 2-3 nights, the pimple dries up. Did you know that a bottle of this is sold worldwide every 8 seconds?!!
2. The Body Shop Skin Clearing Lotion (Rs 995)
This is the perfect gel based moisturizer for day time use. Its light weight on the skin, mattifies the skin and helps shrink breakouts. A little goes a long way and the formula is perfect for people with oily, blemished skin.
3. The Body Shop Blemish Fade Night Lotion (Rs 995)
The night lotion is amazing for helping get rid of acne scars while at the same time controlling the outbreak of acne. The formula is really light so I like to wear under a nourishing night cream to get the best results since my skin dehydrates easily. The pump packaging is hygienic and travel friendly!
My newest favorite from this range is the Tea Tree Face Mask (Rs 995) which is a kaolin based, cooling mask that calms blemished skin and helps shrink breakouts. I find this very soothing in the current Mumbai heat and humidity and my skin feels cleansed after use. It contains Glycerin and doesn’t dry out the skin like several other masks meant for acne prone skin so people with dry/combination skin who have breakouts can use this without issue as well!
