So dry yet so spotty! A combination of winter dehydrated skin and random spots during PMS time-that’s my skin. I put a lot of creams and products on my skin to try and test out which works best. Some have come and gone, yet some stayed strong on the skincare game.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil has been in the game for several years now and I am not planning on replacing this simply because it works! This stuff basically clears up my skin and prevents ‘already-there’ spots from evolving into a ginormous zit!
Some people have been put off because of the fact that this tiny 10 mL bottle only has 15% tea tree oil. I honestly don’t know why The Body Shop decided to put only that amount. Personally, I don’t mind because the formula itself works fine. There must be a perfectly good reason why they didn’t make it 100% tea tree oil.
I would normally use it right after washing my face or after a serum or essence. I inspect my face and dot the tea tree oil using a clean finger and pat it only on the problem areas or red bumps and spots that would potentially develop into an acne.
A little goes a long way. I usually do 2 to 3 drops and that would be enough for all the spots in my face. I find that it works best on spots that are just starting to develop. Right when I apply it, I feel a tingling effect that also soothes the itchiness. I let it sit for about 3 to 5 minutes until it dries and continue with my skincare routine.
It doesn’t miraculously clear up your skin overnight but I notice that the bumps never grow bigger when I apply this.Spots are also less visible or gone after about 2 to 3 days.
I highly recommend this to all skin types who are looking for a good spot treatment!
