    I tried using Lotus tea tree oil-control face wash to control excess oil and pimples, but I was thoroughly disappointed with the results. It did nothing to help my complexion and I got no respite from pimples. Will try the other face washes, especially the Body Shop one. Thank you for sharing such an informative article. Please share more such interesting top 10 lists. :)
