Happy Saturday loves!
Today I have for you a couple of new skincare products from the Body Shop that I have been testing out for the past few weeks and really enjoying. I still get problematic skin and suffer with occasional blemishes and breakouts and I’m in my late twenties, I think this is very common especially for us women as we stress a lot which can cause breakouts and then there’s the hormonal spots that we get around that time of the month (frustrating I know!) So when the Body Shop extended their already existing Tea Tree range, I was very exited to try the products and see if they work.
Starting off with the Tea Tree 3-in-1 Wash, Scrub and Mask* it’s such a good multitasking product and I love using this one, I would probably say it’s my favourite from the whole range. Even my hubby uses it and loves it! If you like the smell of tea tree you will love this product, it’s really natural and does what it says on the tube. I would normally apply a generous amount and leave it on for about 10 mins, then wet my hands and massage it into my skin in circular motion to exfoliate a little before rinsing off. It leaves my face so clean and soft, it helps combat blemishes and also gets rid of excess oil and mattifies the skin. It has clay which draws out impurities, blackheads and helps clear/tighten your pores. You get quite a generous tube – 125ml for £8.00
Another new edition to the Tea Tree range is the Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution* which is basically a day serum that is infused with pure tea tree oil, it’s fast absorbing and non-greasy and sinks into my skin pretty quickly. I was worried that it’s gonna make me oily/shiny but it didn’t, just kept my skin hydrated and balanced. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now and I’ve noticed my skin is a lot clearer and I seem to get less breakouts, my pores appear less blocked and my skin feels really smooth. I still get very shiny on my t-zone but I always do in the summer anyway. I will continue to use this serum and will update you in another couple of weeks wether it helps combat the shine or not. You can use this product twice a day, morning and evening and I’d normally apply 2-3 drops all over my face and then follow up with my moisturiser. It retails for £12.00 for 50ml
Lastly I have a little Tea Tree Oil* which is not a new product I don’t think. I just love the smell of it and I like to use it for a few different things. I get eczema on my legs occasionally so I like to put a few drops before I have a soak in the bath, which helps me soothe the irritation, you can also dab a little on spots and blemishes. This oil is pure, natural and paraben free and comes from Mount Kenya it’s very potent and you only need a tiny bit, so 10ml ( £8.00 ) actually lasts pretty well.
