The Body Shop 'Tea Tree' Range

At the beginning of the year, I bought a skincare gift set from The Body Shop, as one of my New Years Resolutions is to attempt to stick to a skincare routine and clear my skin. I have a couple of the face masks from this brand, and I think that they are really effective, so I wanted to look into more of their products. My favourite face mask at the moment is their Tea Tree Skin Clearing Clay Mask, so I looked for a set in the same range, which I found and bought, and am now going to share with you, in case you can still get it. I have only used some of the products a few times now, so I cannot really speak from experience yet, but who knows, if I like these products they might be featured in a favourites post soon.

This is the set all together. I got it for an amazing price - £25, when it is worth £38. It comes with five full size products, which are £5 each with this deal, which is such a bargain. The Tea Tree range combats oily skin and acne, as it has mattifying and skin clearing qualities, which is perfect for my skin type.

3-IN-1 Wash - Scrub - Mask (125ml)

This product can be used in three different ways, which intrigued me. To use it as a wash, daily, you wet your face with warm water, apply the wash and rub it in with circular motions until it foams up, and then rinse it off. To use it as a scrub, two to three times a week, you massage it gently onto damp skin, focusing on the t-zone, and then rinse it off. To use it as a mask, one to two times a week, you apply a thin layer onto a dry face and wait five to ten minutes for it to dry, and then rinse it off. I probably won't use it as a mask, as I already have the mask from the range, but it is good that this product is so diverse as then you don't have to spend extra money on different products. I like to use this in the morning.

Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser (150ml)

This product helps to remove make up, dirt and impurities from throughout the day, so I like to use this at night after I've taken my makeup off with either a wipe or micellar water, for an extra deep clean. You apply this onto your wet face and massage it in until it is lathered, and then rinse it off. This assures that my face is clean for the next few products.

Skin Clearing Mattifying Facial Toner (250ml)

This product is my favourite from this set so far. I use it after I have cleansed my face. I just pour it onto a cotton pad and sweep it over my face, focusing on my t-zone as that is where I get most oily. I can straight away feel it tingling, which is quite a nice sensation, and I think it does help to keep my face matte for longer. I use this at night and in the morning.

Mattifying Lotion (50ml)

This product is similar to a moisturiser. I apply it after I have toned my face, as it helps to control oil throughout the day. I use this only in the morning, before I start applying any makeup.

Night Lotion (30ml)

This product helps to prevent and treat acne overnight, so this is the last product I put on my face before bed, at night, to allow it the full time to sink in. I have noticed that this product really sinks into the skin quickly, which is different from other overnight treatments I've tried before which just sit on the skin, so I think this product will work for me.

Have you tried any products from this range?
