Does your skin break out majorly during the monsoon? I have had crazy issues with my skin, and in general, the Tea Tree Range from The Body Shop keeps my skin happy. I once reviewed The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion for a friend’s blog way back in 2012, and that, combined with the Tea Tree Oil from the range were the two saviours of my skin from acne and random pimples. However, this year, my skin was going absolutely crazy, and so I grabbed the two new products from the range – The Body Shop Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution and the Tea Tree 3 in 1 (Wash, Scrub & Mask) from the range. I had high hopes from both, and after using the two for more than a month, I have reached certain conclusions. Read on to know more!

The Body Shop Tea Tree 3-in-1 Wash. Scrub. Mask Review:

I started using this when my skin was going through a tough time. After a month and half I am glad to say that this, together with the Anti-Imperfection solutions, have done a lot for my skin. My skin has the tendency of becoming really dry if I use too many anti-blemish/oil removing products, and thankfully these did not do that. The scrub mask was used thrice every week for a span of 2 months nearly, and the result was amazing – I tend to use this product as a scrub for 2-3 minutes, and then let it dry out (10 minutes) before washing off.

It worked very well on my skin, minimizing pores, making skin look and feel squeaky clean without drying it out. I also saw a very positive impact on my pimples – they sort of dried down when I used this as a spot correction mask, putting some directly on my skin.

The mask is white with tiny beads in them which work well and scrubs my skin up without being too harsh. I have to give this product two thumbs up because it really does what it is supposed to, and no, if you are looking for a miracle in 1 week, that isn’t going to happen. Skincare products need time to work.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution Review:

This was a product I was looking forward as well. It is a clear liquid with a strong tea-tree oil smell to it. I used this as a part of my skincare regime. After cleansing, this would be my second step, where I would allow the face to absorb the clear liquid (which absorbs very fast), before adding some moisturizer. I used this for close to two months, and while it doesn’t give you any immediate reaction, it does work in the long run.

Over time, I did see my skin breaking out far less, even during those days of the month when I tend to break out horribly. I also used this only on the spots where my skin was breaking out, but this didn’t work too well there, so I decided to use it on a regular basis on my skin. I have noticed that my skin looks good after a two-month regime, so I would recommend using this for some time before giving any opinion about the same.
