My first Body Shop product was Strawberry Lip Butter. I got it when I went to Bangalore for the first time during my teenage days. And since then, my love for TBS has remained constant. I have used several products over the years and Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion is one of them. My love story with this lotion started over two years ago.

I got attracted to The Body Shop Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion in my search for a nice moisturizer that won’t make my skin oily than it already is and also takes care of my few blemishes.

I first started using it during the day before I left for work. That was during winter. On application, it gives a mild cooling sensation which feels fresh. Just a pea-sized amount sorts my day. My shiny nose, forehead, and chin stay matte for a good amount of time. But around mid-afternoon, I need to powder a little bit for touch up, and that’s about it.

I didn’t dare using it during the summer season because of its lack of sun protection. But then, the control of my oil secretion wasn’t any good as it was while I was using TBS Tea Tree mattifier. So I started using it under my CC cream. And guys, it was a brilliant idea! The CC cream has the SPF my skin needs, and a matte finish from The Body Shop Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion.

My way of using this mattifier remains the same. These two years of using it constantly has really improved my skin’s texture and health. I haven’t had any breakouts or any other skin problem yet. This is one of the best, especially for oily skin.

3/5

PROS

Does not cause breakouts

Controls oil

CONS

Strong smell

Expensive

Does nothing for the blemishes


I got this specific mattifying lotion for my blemishes as it is specially designed for that purpose. But after one month of use, I see no change in my blemishes.

Tea tree is good for getting rid of the oil on my face as I have oily skin. But, that’s about it. It does nothing apart from oil control. The smell is also overpowering. This is very sad. I usually have high expectations from TBS. But this product disappointed me.

4.8/5

PROS

Easily absorbed

Paraben-free

Lightweight

Gives a cooling effect

Can be used as night cream and primer as well

Matte finish

CONS

Distinct smell on application


I use The Body Shop Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion for almost everything, i.e. day cream, primer and night cream. I might be going overboard with it, but my oily and acne prone skin can’t seem to get enough of it.

I love the lightweight texture, the cooling sensation, the matte finish but not much of its fragrance to be honest. But thankfully it vanishes after a few seconds. Like I said earlier, I have acne prone skin, but with this lotion on, I haven’t had breakouts in a very long time. So this is definitely a keeper.

5/5

PROS

Easily absorbed

Lightweight

Makeup stays longer

Controls shine

Controls oil secretion

CONS

None


I have been using this Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion along with the face wash from the same range for over three months. And now I’m thinking of getting the serum as well. Girls, this range is a blessing!

It has become my favorite lotion to prevent my face from being too shiny. I also use this as a primer before I put on makeup. That way, it helps my makeup to stay longer. Overall, it is above average product. A must try!

TBS Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion can be used both as a day cream and a night cream. It has the perfect amount of tea tree oil in it, which won't dry out or clog your skin. However, this product works best as a day cream.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Mattifying Lotion is suitable for all skin types, especially for blemished skin. But it is best for combination to oily skin as it has mattifying agents that might end up making dry skin drier.
