Boarding planes, laying around in the sun for 3 weeks and then returning the UK has left my skin feeling a little sorry for itself. The change in water and temperatures has meant my skin is a little dry at the moment. The use of suncream and SPF's has also meant my skin has broken out over the last couple of weeks. However, we are now back on track to a healthy looking complexion, spot free and moisturised.
The Body Shop is the place to go for all skin care essentials. I remember using tea tree products when I just started looking after my skin properly when I was around 13/14. Thus, receiving the press release for this range which launches in stores from the 27th July, I couldn't wait to try it all out.
With festival season upon us, it's important that we hydrate and protect our skin ready for hours of fun in the sun. If your skin is a little imperfect at the moment, make it perfect by using at least two of these magic products!
3-IN-1 WASH, SCRUB, MASK* with purifying tea tree oil from the foot hills of Mount Kenya
RRP: £8 / 125ML
I like to treat my face to a face mask 1-2 times a week; usually on a Wednesday and a Sunday. However, I also cleanse my skin in the morning and evening so the 3-in-1 face wash/scrub/masque seemed to be made for me. It can be used as a wash to cleanse, scrub to exfoliate or a masque to deep cleanse.
The consistency itself is a thick white paste with very small green beads in. It smells of tea tree (which is a scent I happen to love). I have tried it out in the three different ways and much prefer it as a morning face cleanse and an evening exfoliator. Of course, it can be left on for a little longer to allow the tea tree oil to really sink into the skin.
Like all tea tree products; once applied a cooling feeling appears which feels nice and refreshing. The three cleansing actions help to tackle blackheads, pores and shine.
RRP: £11 / 50ML
This product comes in a glass bottle with a pipette dispenser. It's a liquid packed full of tea tree that is specifically designed to target those imperfections on your face. Whether you have bumps under the skin or you're dealing with the aftermath of a sore spot; the tea tree in the Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution will combat these problems.
I have been using this religiously twice a day and to begin with had a very sore imperfection on my cheek. Within 3 days, it cleared up and I haven't used anything else other than this to combat it. I am really impressed!
It's a non-greasy formulation and is more like a water. One pump of the pipette is enough to cover the face and this should be applied after moisturising.
RRP: £8 / 10ML
This little bottle is a blemish targeter which I used on my sore spot on my cheek and I don't think it really did much because it's a similar product to the Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution!
The other two products however have worked absolute wonders to my skin and I am going to continue using them till I've run out and need to re-stock! There are also other products in the range!
THE TEA TREE RANGE AT THE BODY SHOP IS AVAILABLE IN ALL STORES FROM 27TH JULY 2016.
