I have always loved products from the Body Shop, I generally loved using products from the Cherry Blossom range, specially shower gel, body mist, and body lotion. Also I always used their tea tree infused wet wipes, loved them little extra for the packaging, as it came packed in a plastic jar (which made it handy to carry in my handbag). Once when I walked into the store to get my hands on regular buys, the sales girl offered me to try the Tea tree Facial Cleanser, and because I was already using wet wipes and loved the whole feel and freshness of Tea tree, I fell for it. For when I used it for the first time, I felt it cleansed my skin very well, but also my skin felt extremely dry. On the other hand, the fragrance of Tea tree made me feel fresh. Because it was summers and I have combination skin type, I decided to continue using it. After using it for almost a month, I could see my breakouts were reduced, and it cleared my skin a little (not significant change in clearance though). If you have oily or combination skin type you should go for this, make sure to apply a very good moisturizer to help the dryness caused. Its soap free and thus do not form a lot of lather, but enough to deep cleans the impurities from skin. Always a thumps up for packaging for the body shop products, comes a dark green translucent bottle, have never experienced a spill issue while travelling, but still advisable to keep it wrapped separately to avoid soiled travel bag. A very little product is enough for one time use, and thus one bottle should last long, I feel its priced well for the quantity and aftereffects offered.

Boon for Face Tea Tree Facial Wash of Body Shop is indeed a blessing in disguise. I stepped in an departmental outlet to buy groceries and toiletries. The girl on the counter approached me to sell toiletries. At one go, I declined excusing myself that I pick the product that I use in my daily skin regimen. She insisted me to use for my teenage daughter who was accompanying me. She has a combination skin and this product is better for oily and combo skin. I bought the product and guided my daughter to use and I was satisfied with the result.

The oil film that clung to her face in hot summers was nowhere to be seen and her face skin looked normal skin. Face wore a clear skin look with glow within two weeks of use. I thanked the girl that I met at the outlet. I started using for myself and discovered that it was suitable for my normal skin. Tea tree oil is infused in the face wash which takes good care of skin. Tea Tree Facial Wash comes in sturdy packaging of green color plastic bottle with a black colour flip open top. All the ingredients and direction to use is clearly mentioned on the pack.

It is a travel friendly pack still I insist to carry them in a leak proof bag so that it does not mess with other articles. We use twice a day and half a coin amount is enough for face and neck area. It lathers mildly but it cleanses the skin freeing them from dirt and dust. My daughter and I both are happy using Tea Tree Facial Wash and I recommend. The quality and performance of the Face Wash is awesome and it is worth the amount spent. The tea tree oil is beneficial for skin discoloration, blemishes, scars and acne. It cleanses the blemishes, and checks oiliness of face and even uneven patches on face fades with regular use. It is easily available in stores and it can be bought from different online shopping portals, such as Amazon, The Body Shop, etc.

My skin is smooth, clean and flawless

Convenient packaging

CONS

Strong smell


I have oily skin that is very prone to acne. I don’t remember a day where my skin was completely pimple free. As I am writing this review, I am looking at my face in the mirror and smiling.

I always keep scrounging for products that will make my skin clean and pimple-free. I got my hands on this tea tree face wash from The Body Shop. I was very impressed with the packaging. It is sleek, easy and sturdy. It gives a sense of highly concentrated product which is good. The quantity justifies the price as well. The consistency is gel-like, so on application, there is no chance of any wastage. The fragrance is a little strong, but it subsides after a minute.

I first used this face wash before going to bed and woke up with less oiliness than regular days. And I was like, “that’s a good start.” I rarely write reviews, but this one deserves every bit of my time and opinion. After a month's use, this Tea Tree cleanser is making my skin the way I want it to be.

I eventually got the night blemish fade lotion and pore minimizer from the same Tea Tree range. Everything combined is the best thing that is happening to my skin right now. In the morning, I use the cleanser to wash my face, followed by the lotion and the same routine for the night with the pore minimizer instead of the lotion.

My skin is smoother, cleaner, and almost flawless. Now I can confidently take selfies without any filters! I recommend these products to those who have bad breakouts. It is worth every penny and cheaper than visiting a derma.

Cleared pimples on my forehead and chin

PROS

Reduces pimples

Paraben-free

Strong smell

CONS

Dries out the skin


The first time I used The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash, my experience was not so positive. It has a very distinct chemical smell. Also, my eyes stung a little while I was forming a lather.

I have normal skin type, and this cleanser makes my skin dry, so I need to apply a moisturizer immediately. Even then, I still use it because it seems to be working for my acne. With continuous use of three weeks, eventually, it cleared my pimples on my forehead and chin. That is why I’m hooked to it. I wouldn’t recommend it to people with dry skin. It will be a nightmare! But combination to oily skin types will love it!

No results
2.8/5

PROS

Soap-free

Cleanses well

A little goes a long way

CONS

No effect on blemishes

Can be drying for dry skin


I got this facial wash from TBS for clearing out my blemishes, but unfortunately, even after a month's use, I see no results. It does its cleaning work well but does nothing for my blemishes. It cleaned but didn't clear. I use it daily two times and seeing how much more I am left with, I will say the price is reasonable.

I don’t have breakouts anymore!

PROS

Prevents breakouts

Paraben-free

Mild

Does not dry out the skin

CONS

Not very effective on already present pimples


My combination skin loves this. I have been a loyal user of this face wash for almost two years. I haven’t experienced any breakouts since I started using this facial wash. It does not strip off the moisture nor does it dry out my skin.
