If by now you don’t know about the benefits of tea tree oil or how it’s being used in all kinds of skin care products, I suggest you start digging into some articles and get reading. Tee tree oil, and now The Body Shop’s line of tea tree oil skin care products have made getting inexpensive and actually helpful skin care products to the masses.
I first stumbled upon this Tea Tree Oil Face Wash a few years ago while doing some shopping in the local mall. I had gone into The Body Shop to get a new loofah for the shower, and I saw the bright green bottles sitting on a shelf not too far from me.
Having already heard of the benefits of Tea Tree Oil for acne, I decided to buy a bottle and give it a try.
What's in this article...
In the past, I had tried other acne face washes, but they either irritated my skin or dried out my skin so badly that I had trouble comfortably opening my mouth. Unfortunately, despite the drying, none of these so-called “acne face wash” products ever did anything for my extremely oily skin, or my acne.
On top of that, it seemed like these cleansers were all the same: They had either salicylic acid in them to some degree, or some percentage of benzoyl peroxide in the ingredients. No matter what brand face wash I tried, they always seemed to contain one or the other.
I was ready for something different.
So, I bought the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash, along with a small facial brush, from the Body Shop.
It didn’t smell like medicine, as sooooo many of the other acne wash cleansers do.
The first time I used it was in the shower. After wetting my face under the shower for a minute or two, I applied the Tea Tree Oil Face Wash directly to my face using the tips of my fingers. Then, after wetting the small soft-bristled brush, began massaging my face with the brush, in small circular motions.
The Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash worked into a foamy lather pretty quickly. I still couldn’t get over how good this stuff smelled!
I didn’t want to “over do it” the first time I used it, just in case I had some sort of weird reaction to this new face wash. So, after a minute or two of washing my face gently with the new cleanser and the new facial brush, I rinsed my face with the warm water of the shower.
I had read some instructions about how I was supposed to splash some cold water on my face to close my pores, but that sounded a bit too harsh for me. I mean, really? Who wants to take a nice, relaxing shower and then splash cold water on their face. Needless to say, I skipped this step.
The results were amazing.
I don’t think that my face has ever felt so clean. I know that sounds crazy. Clean is clean, right? Well, that’s what I used to think until I tried this tea tree face wash. You just have to try it to see (and feel) what I’m talking about.
The Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash is available at your local Body Shop. I have noticed that they are set up in many shopping malls around the United States, so try there first.
If you cannot find it locally, search for it online and purchase it over the web. A small 2 oz bottle only costs about $3.50, and a larger 8.4 oz bottle sells for around $11.00.
