Beauty Product of the Month: November - Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Facial Exfoliator

This is by no means a new discovery to me; I’ve loved The Body Shop Tea Tree range for a number of years now, and wonder why I haven’t mentioned it sooner. This is a product suitable for weekly to twice weekly use to use in place of your usual facial wash. It’s meant for oily skin, and I wouldn’t recommend using this product any more than twice a week because it has quite a rich formulation. It’s described as a “polish”, and is very thick and creamy. The exfoliating beads are very gentle so it shouldn’t irritate your skin. After using for a few months either once or twice a week, this has helped to minimise the number of breakouts I get. Tea Tree oil is famous for its blemish beating properties so I’d highly recommend trying out this range. I’ve also used their face mask (not as luxurious as Lush’s face masks, but still great), the facial wash and the pure tea tree oil which you can apply directly to your spots overnight, or dilute and use as a toner.

Thanks for this review! I have bought the The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil blemish stick numerous times, but havent tried anything else from the range, Im just scared that it may dry out my skin too much! I have combo skin so i have to be carefull which products I choose -Have you tried St Ives exfoliator? Itd be nice to compare the 2!! x

@Lorien, That's one of the great things about this range, it's really not that drying. I use it twice a week, but you could try using it just once a week to see how you get on. There's also a Seaweed range for combination skin that might be worth a try. I have used St.Ives before, just in place of a shower gel though, not on my face. xXx
