The Body Shop Tea Tree Range
A lot of you on Instagram asked me about acne marks and pigmentation and also the major concern was tiny bumps on the skin and uneven skin texture. I suffer from a lot of those myself. So I have also tried and tested a lot of products which help including a lot of home remedies but what worked the best for me is the tea tree range from The Body Shop.
Now I use tea tree oil (from any brand) on a regular basis but I have seen a huge difference after I started using these particular products. The three main products I love from their range are as follows:
The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky-Clean Scrub

My Experience: I have been using this for a year now and this scrub has completely changed my life. I get a lot of skin reactions due to weather change or some allergic reactions to something or the other. Tiny bumps on my forehead is like a regular thing happening. But this scrub has reduced all of that by 90%. I use this scrub twice a week in summers and once a week in winters. Since it has tea tree oil it can dry out your skin that's why I use it less in winters.
Its a mild scrub so it doesn't hurt your skin in any way. The granules are very tiny and not abrasive on the skin. It gives you an instant fresh and clean feeling just like the name suggest. They also have three in one version but I somehow like this one way more.
You can use this on active acne also it doesn't spread infact it helps to reduce and dry out the acne faster. But it will burn for a second if you have broken skin but nothing major. Sometimes I only use this on my nose since I get black heads and bumps on my nose a lot as that's the oily area for me and this scrub controls it to a huge extent.
Also its economical since one tube lasts you a good amount of time. If you use it regularly it will lasts you atleast 6 months. The packaging is also great, you can also travel with it easily.
I would recommend this for all skin types even though its mostly meant for oily skin. I have dry skin and I love this.

My Experience: I bought this mask with the scrub over a year ago and this definitely works amazingly too. But I do feel it works better when I use it right after the scrub. This just instantly cools down your skin and dries out your acne or boils or bumps way quicker. It doesn't burn but does feel refreshing and cooling on the skin. The tingle you feel is more cooling then burning compared to other tea tree products.
I love the way it feels on the skin. I apply it right after I use the scrub. I keep my skin a little wet before applying the mask. Its clay based so it goes on smoothly on the skin. I prefer using a brush. Leave it for 10 to 15 mins then wipe it off or rinse it off. I see that I'm using a hydrating toner after this, since its tea tree plus clay based it can make you feel a little dry or tight.
The mask leaves your skin super clean and you will instantly see a difference in your bumps and acne. Regular use of this reduces the acne marks and formation of new acne since it keeps your pores clean and controls the excess oil. I saw that my acne stopped spreading after I started using this mask. You can also use this as a spot treatment. I use this mask once a week any season or weather.
I would totally recommend this if you suffer from acne and acne marks. This isn't the best solution for blemishes and pigmentation since it will take atleast 3 months of regular use to see a difference there. So if you have dry skin and don't suffer from acne you can skip this. I love using this because it has helped me lot by reducing the tiny bumps on my forehead
Again its economical one tub will lasts you atleast 6 months even if you use it regularly.

My Experience: This is meant for oily skin but I have dry to combination skin and I love this serum. I know they call it a night mask but its more like a serum you apply between a toner and a moisturizer. This does dry out your skin since it has the combination of tea tree oil and salicylic acid so I use a hydrating sleeping mask/ moisturizer on top.
Also this will burn if you have broken skin or an open wound so be careful otherwise it doesn't give any burning sensation. It instantly gets absorbed into the skin. You just have to apply a thin layer and you are good to apply a moisturizer on top once it dries. You may feel a little tight after it dries if you have dry skin just use a nice hydrating sleeping cream.
I have been using this mask for more then 2 years now I have finished quite a number of tubs and I keep buying. One tub lasts me 3 months. I use this almost everyday in summers especially when I am prone to acne/ boils/ bumps. In winter I use it alternately. The only time I stopped using this for 20 days was when I was trying the Ordinary products and I did miss it a lot.
Over a period of time I started seeing a difference in my acne marks and blemishes. This serum has helped me to even out my skin texture and has also reduced pigmentation. This won't show an instant difference you will see the difference when you are almost done with using one tub.
I get a lot of heat boils on my arms and I apply this and it makes the boils disappear faster. This is something I'm gonna repurchasing no matter what new product I try or love.
I would recommend this for anybody who has acne related issues.
I may sound like a broken record in this one since I love all the products here but I personally have used these products for over a year now and I love them a lot since they have made a huge difference in my life and also worked for people who have tried on my recommendation. The Body Shop also has other products in this range which I haven't specified here since I haven't used them that much. I'll only recommend products I have used and tried for a period of time.
