The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Face Wash and Toner

I have more time today!

I shall review The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Skin Clearing Face Wash and Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner today~

I have been putting this review off since God knows when, so I shall finally get down to it today ._.

 

Unfortunately, I have finished off all the contents so you’ll have to satisfy yourselves with a not-so-personalised web image from The Body Shop 😦

 

I’ll add my own pictures when I repurchase hahaha!

(that statement should tell you how great this product is)

 The facial wash is very mild, non-soapy, so you may feel that you don’t get the ‘squeaky-clean’ feeling from this cleanser if you have very oily skin. What I usually do is wash my face with some other cleanser (any one is fine, just make sure you get all the dirt out) then continue with this facial wash and make sure it reaches every inch of your face (don’t forget the chin!) and rub thoroughly (and gently).

After washing off, you’ll have a super refreshed skin and your skin will feel fresh and tingly! Some people say that it stings, but I have no issues with the cleanser. It’s only the toner that may sting. I think that’s part of its job anyway- if it stings, it means its doing its job and killing off all the pimple bacteria!

Now on to the toner. You know most toners now are touting the wonderful properties of salicylic acid and what it does etc etc.? (like my E.L.F zit zapper)

Well, the toner contains naturally-occuring salicylic acid in the willow bark extract this toner has (you have to shake the container as the willow bark will settle at the bottom, it’s a whitish layer). You can’t really see this in the picture above but pop in to any The Body Shop store, you can see it for yourself.

But I digress. Anyway, the weird thing about this toner is that it heats up then cools after application, so you get a warm feeling on your face and you get such pretty red cheeks 🙂 I think it’s waaaay cool! Your skin will tingle a bit. Of course if you lather this toner on directly it will feel like you have first-degree burns or something, that’s why you should follow the instructions on the bottle and use a piece of cotton wool and cloth. I was naughty and just slapped it on directly the first time- and my face felt like it was on fire for the first five seconds! I do that still in the morning when I really need a little waking up, but DO NOT FOLLOW ME if you have sensitive skin.

Anyway, after I started using this range my blackheads have subsided and my pimples subside quicker. You may feel that your pimples look reddish after using the toner, but they will disappear almost overnight! I think there is sodium lauryl sulfate in this though, which makes me a trifle uneasy- you know how people say putting toothpaste on zits will make them better and how your face burns and yet feels cool to the touch? This toner is exactly like it, so I’m wondering if that is the work of sodium lauryl sulfate ._. Hmmmm.

I like how your face feels matt after applying the toner ^^
