The Body Shop India Tea Tree oil review


Hola Everyone

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.
