The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Review

Hello everyone! Today I'm reviewing a product that has proved to be a magical potion for my acne problem. It is The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil, read on to find out how it worked for me.

Details: Targeted care for blemished skin. Can be used direct on skun or for facial steaming. 
  • Soothing
  • Has antibacterial properties
  • Does not dry out skin
Priced at Rs 695 for 10ml

My verdict: I got myself this oil back in the summers when I was experiencing some breakout problems. I had heard that tea tree oil is believed to have medicinal properties for soothing skin problems, acne problems majorly. After some online hunt I zeroed in on this one from TBS. Coming to the product, it comes in a dark green colored glass bottle with a twist open white cap. It is a transparent water like liquid with a strong smell. It has to be applied directly on the problem area with a cotton swab or finger tips on the very first sign of breakout. Only a drop or two is needed for one use and it can be applied two-three times a day. I could see the difference in the first couple of uses itself. I applied it on the areas of my face where the zits had started showing up. It did not let the zits develop further and dries them completely. It also stings a little on application but that is not a problem. Also it might not help on fully developed pimples but it does lighten the marks that they leave behind. Coming to the bad and not so impressive features now, the first is the quantity for the price, it is exorbitantly priced for a mere 10 ml. I don't think I'm buying it any soon again. Also it gets really hard to get the last bit of oil out of the bottle because of the stupid nozzle. 

Finally what I'd say is, this oil does help in soothing and drying out pimples and acne effectively. If price is not a problem you should definitely go for it.
