On my lookout for a new cleanser I came across this Tea Tree wash by The Body Shop. When I went to the shop I asked for a cleanser for blemished skin and the shop assistant immediately gave me this. (All due respect for The Body Shop but I don't like the approach of their shop assistants. They immediately come and ask what you're looking for and when you tell them what you need they give you one product, claim it's the right one for you and abruptly urge you to buy it... Next time I will check out their product range online so I'll be prepared for the shop assistants attack, haha!)
About the product:
The Body Shop Tea Tree Cool & Creamy Wash
suitable for blemished skin
with Community Fair Trade organic tea tree oil
100 ml / 8,00€
"Gets skin spotlessly clean without over-drying."
The tea tree oil makes this cleanser super spicy. Thats why you really need to avoid the eye area and why you should not use more than a blueberry sized amount of it. After using it you will understand why it says "cool" wash because your skin will feel really refreshed (like after using a strong mint toothpaste). I also felt it cleaned up my pores which is the first step to a spotlessly clean skin. Furthermore I had a few pimples which started to decline after I had used the cleanser in the evening. When it comes to the "over-drying" part you should be careful because my skin really felt drier than after the use of other cleansers. Therefor I would only recommend it to people with oily or combination blemished skin. I will keep on using the cleanser but at his point I couldn't say whether it's the perfect product for me or not. Look out for another review in one of my empties posts as soon as I have used it up!
