Review: The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil

I've been busy lately and haven't had the time to update my blog. I'm so sorry for that. It's for professional reasons, though, so I hope you guys can understand. I have a lot going on in my mind right now but I still had the chance to look at my statistics and saw you guys still visit my website often! I'm happy and felt I owe you more! The most updated media I have right now is my Instagram @meowchien_ so if you like to follow me there so we can connect, that'll be awesome. So let's go to the review I've been wanting to post since forever. This product is often in my 'on the way' packages because I order it so often whenever I ran out. For today's entry, we're reviewing The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil.

What is it? 

The Body Shop says:

"Battle blemishes with our iconic Tea Tree Oil. We sustainably steam-distill our tea tree leaves within 12 hours of harvest, so we can bottle our purest, most potent oil. With its powerful, purifying properties, our Tea Tree Oil is great for quick application to help reduce blemishes.

Features and Benefits:

  •  100% vegan
  • Enriched with Community Fair Trade tea tree oil from Kenya
  • Our 20ml bottle is packed with the oil of 15,000 tea tree leaves
  • Suitable for blemished skin.

How to use The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil:
  1. After toning, apply directly to areas of concern. 
  2. Use fingertips or a cotton bud and gently pat the skin.
  3. For best results, prep your skin with the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Face Wash and Tea Tree Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner.
The tea tree oil is inside an amber deep green colored plastic bottle which comes in 10ml and 20ml sizes. The cap is quite secure which prevents spillage in case you want to lug this inside your bag. The tip of the bottle is narrow so it only dispenses just enough product for every application.

Contrary to its name, The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil is in a more liquid form so it's very runny. My mom says the tea tree oil smells like a mint herb and she doesn't like it much, but for me (who loves mint), it simply smells refreshing. I don't mind it when I apply it to my face. I normally use it as a spot treatment after The Body Shop Tea Tree Facial wash and toner. I apply it using my fingers and it spreads easily. The oil is also fully absorbed by my skin. It doesn't leave any sticky feeling at all. 

The tea tree oil treats my pimple by gently drying them out. I make sure to apply it a few times within the day. The bump and redness go away after just one night. For severe cases, it takes a maximum of 3 days. But to put it simply, it does the job.

I've been using tea tree oil for more than a year already and I'm satisfied with the product. I also repurchased the toner and facial wash from the travel set and I love the result! Kindly let me know if you want another review with the full set.

How much and where to buy it?
P495 for 10ml and P695 for 20ml. I always have this in my Shopee cart so I can easily be notified in case of a sale.

What I love
  • The best pimple spot treatment
  • A little goes a long way
  • Non-sticky
  • Cost-effective
  • Dries out pimples 
  • Doesn't leave dark spots
  • 100% vegan
  • Doesn't sting
  • Suitable for blemished skin.
What I don't
  • Nothing I can mention

I treat this oil as my serum and I only use my fingers for the application!

Will I repurchase? 
I buy this a lot, especially when it's on sale! It was definitely worth the buy since its effects are really apparent. 

If you have pimples, I'll highly recommend this product to you. Tea tree oil is a strong astringent and for my skin, it's the best ingredient for acne control. Although the price may be high, it's a good investment since a little goes a long way. With The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil, your breakouts will subside in no time! This is one of my favorite skincare products and would repurchase it again.
