Hows your week coming along? Is it just me or do you feel it too that the days are running super fast. I have a bucket load of stuff to be completed but no time!! Good thing is that weekend is almost here. 😀 Besides all the pending work, i am planning to watch a movie at home this weekend. So any suggestions for a good thriller or anything romantic would be welcome!! 🙂
Coming to the post, this time its a review of the product permanent in my skin care shelf these days!! The Body Shop tea tree oil , which i am using regularly. Thanks to my sensitive skin, i keep on getting these bumps on my face every now and then specially during weather change and after travels. So i resorted to the oil after hearing a lot of good reviews about it. Let me also add, i am using the face wash and toner from the same range too. Didn’t quite liked the toner though(bit harsh for my sensitive skin).
Here are some details:
Size : 10ml
Price : Rs. 695
Ingredients : 15% of Melaleuca Alternifolia(tea tree) leaf oil, Water, Alcohol Denat., PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Polysorbate20, Limonene, t-Butyl Alcohol, Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil, Citral, Leptospermum Petersonii (Lemon Tea Tree) Oil, Denatonium Benzoate, Tocopherol.
Company claim : Treatment oil which help soothe blemished skin
My take on it :
I purchased this oil as i was getting a few breakouts on my face and after hearing a lot about the benefits decided to give it a try for my combination skin with dry cheeks and oily T-zone. The oil has to be applied on the concerned areas only and it subsides the acne overnight or two considering the severeness. Initially i wasn’t getting the desired results but i did not stop the usage. After a few days i could see the effects, It was working!! It did stop the pimple from breaking out but left a mark which has now become very light as i am still applying the oil on the spot. So i feel it works fine for blemishes but excellent for pimples. There is a little burning sensation once you apply it but goes off within sometime. A strong smell is present but its bearable.
There are a few dissenting points to it as well :
– It might not suit all skin types, so be prepared.
– A 10ml bottle costs 695 bucks.
– It may leave a mark behind, which takes time to go.
– The bottle cap be difficult to open sometimes with it Push down and turn technique.
Overall, its a magic oil that removes acne within little time(obviously depending upon the severity) and serves the purpose it is made for. I am definitely going to repurchase the oil.
I hope you find the review useful. I would love to hear your inputs if you have used it already and how it suited you. Also let me know if you have any more questions about it.
