Hey guys :)
Usually I love The Body Shop and when I am around a Body Shop my boyfriend needs to hold me tight so I won't run in to buy something unnecessary like I usually do. I can say that the smell of those shops makes me wanna go in always. This time, he didn't hold me and big mistake, I ended up buying something that managed to make my skin even worse than it was: The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion.
My history with this lotion: I needed a day moisturizer and I decided to try one with tea tree. Knowing that The Body Shop has one and because we were around one of the shops "by mistake" I decided to buy it. I used it from middle of August till beginning of October.
What this product claims?
What do I think?"A light, non-oily moisturising lotion for blemished skin. For use after your Tea Tree cleansing regime.
- Provides lightweight hydration
- Easily absorbed
- With shine control for a matte finish
- Antibacterial action
- Clinically proven to give clearer-looking skin" (taken from thebodyshop.co.uk)
+provides lightweight hydration, suitable for combination/oily skin;
--it broke me out like no other - for almost two month while using this I constantly changed other products in my makeup routine blaming them for the blemishes which were appearing everyday. Oh how wrong I was...
--a weird tingling feeling was appearing every time after applying this;
--the number of my blackheads increased.
When I first realized that this lotion was breaking me out I thought that the tea tree oil was the reason, but then I remembered that last summer I used tea tree oil as a spot treatment and there was no problem. That being said, I searched on Google if others had the same troubles with this lotion, and it appears I am not the only one. I still didn't find the "wrong" ingredient, but if you know something about this please let me know. Needles to say, this is a product that I won't repurchase.
