The Body Shop's Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash Review

I have very oily skin. I mean I'm stilling getting pimples now and I had hoped to be rid of them by the time I grew out of puberty!...*sigh*....but that's not the case...The natural oiliness of my skin tends to give me spots and I have had enough! The solution: Tea Tree Facial Wash from the Body Shop to save me from my blemish ridden face! 

With organic community trade tea tree oil, this face wash feels cooling and tingly on the skin. It doesn't lather much so when I use it I squeeze a small amount onto a cleansing cloth to get it foaming a bit more. Apparently less foam is good because foam and bubbles in soap usually come from something called sodium laureth sulfate which can be carcinogenic for humans! Don't worry I'm pretty sure this face wash will not give you cancer since it doesn't have very much of it at all. It smells a little like mint candy and is quite a good wake up call in the morning when you use it to wash your face, ahhh stimulating!

As for my pimples, it hasn't done wonders for it, I still get them on my chin but that could be from hormonal issues. It is very clarifying though and leaves your face feeling squeaky clean after a good scrub! It's not going to break the bank either at 11 CAD. I got it a bit cheaper even because of a friend working at The Body Shop kekeke~

Overall I do recommend this product, it makes my face feel clean at the end of the day and wakes me up in the morning too! The price for it is fair and it does its job relatively well. If you're trying to fight oily skin this will help but if you need a zit zapping product it doesn't work as well as I had hoped.

Thanks for reading and ciao for now~!


  1. I used to use this product too! I have oily skin too, and the tea tree helped for a bit but I found that it would leave my skin with dry splotches where my skin wasn't as oily. If you find your face starts getting dry at some spots I would recommend their seaweed face wash! Their deep cleaning wash comes with little beads that removes the excess dirt as well and after my skin feels very fresh! If you are looking for that zit zapping product you can try the Tea Tree Blemish Gel. It works wonders for on-the-spot treatment :)

    1. yeah I was thinking of trying a spot treatment instead! And I love love LOVE seaweed! At LUSH they have a face mask called BB Seaweed and after I use it my face feels so soft! Thanks for the tips~!

  2. i also used this one, because i have super oily skin. but i'm not a fan of bodyshop products. used a lot of different things from bodyshop like shampoo, toner, cleanser, etc.

  6. Sounds like a decent product, really great informative review! I don't have oily skin so I probably won't try this, my skin is more dry-prone.
