The Body Shop Tea Tree Toner Review

I have super oily skin and light acne marks and if something says it controls oil and blemishes I get really tempted.  We all are aware of the Benefits of Tea Tree oil and how good it is for oily skin and blemishes.  I have been hearing things about TBS Tea Tree line and have never tried these products earlier, so I picked up few Tea tree products.  Read on to know my experience.

My Experience:-

This product comes in a plastic bottle with a lid on the top which is very easy to use.  Talking about my experience I decided to try this toner because I have heard that tea tree oil is great for clearing up acne. The product also claimed to dry up some oil on the skin, and this was a draw for me as well. It did make my skin less oily and it does help with my acne a tiny bit. I really love how this product makes my skin feel super clean.  The problem that I faced is its too strong.  when I apply this on my skin it gives a warmth to the face and tingling sensation.  I know that is because of Tea Tree but that is very overpowering for me personally.  Its for 2-3 minutes after application.  Personally I do not like my toner to be so strong.  although its working fine otherwise.

Thumbs Up:-

1.  Controls oil.

2.  Helps with blemishes.

3.  Skin looks squeaky clean after application.

4.  Easy to use.

5.  Minimises the pores, I have some open pores around my nose.

Thumbs Down:-

1.  Tingling sensation and the warmness that it gives after application is very 

overpowering and people with sensitive skin may not like it.

2.  Not suitable for people with dry skin.

Overall,  It is a decent product, but there are more great products available in

 market.  If you don't mind the tingling sensation and the warmness and you 

have oily acne prone skin.  It is for you.
