Product review – Tea Tree Oil
This time I’m reviewing the last product from my Body Shop haul and it’s the Tea Tree Oil.
Body Shop describes this product as, “Soothing with antibacterial properties against blemishes without drying out the skin”. You’re supposed to take a cotton wad or something similar and dab a little of this product directly on to a spot or a developing spot. And this should then make it dry out faster or not even break out!
It promises amazing things but does it deliver?
Now, I’m way past my teenage phase so my face is pretty clear, but I still get the occasional spot and would of course prefer to live without. I’ve used it on both spots and developing spots, and honestly haven’t noticed the biggest difference. It does make it go away a little faster, maybe, but nothing spectacular. And – for me, at least – it doesn’t make developing spots disappear at all.
The smell is an entire category for itself. It’s so horrid my eyes teared up when I first opened the bottle (after 15 minutes of fighting the lid, which is not only child proof but human proof) and after you put it on your face you can smell it for a good 10-15 minutes later.
For 65 kr you get a tiny bottle with 10 ml, which in my opinion is way too expensive for a product that is mediocre at best.
– Makes spots go away a little faster
– It’s not tested on animals
– Horrid smell
– Doesn’t really do much difference
– The lid is practically impossible to get off
– It’s ridiculously expensive
All in all, I’ll give this product 2/5 stars because it (seems to) help a tiny bit and isn’t tested on animals. I’ll use up the bottle but I won’t be buying it again. I’m very disappointed and it’s the first product from The Body Shop that I really don’t like.
If you’d still like to try it, you can find it here.
