The Body Shop Tea Tree Toner

I recently did a post on my Body Shop haul that I had (I’ll have another soon, I got a box full of goodies coming my way I had tons of coupons and got more then 50% off my total purchase!).  I’ve been using the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner every other day for the last few days and I am pretty pleased so far.  I never really used a toner before but I’ve read a few sites that suggested it, and at the time that I bought it, it was 50% off.

Here is what The Body Shop site description is of the product

This refreshing toner freshens and removes the last traces of make-up, dirt and oil, leaving skin feeling soft, fresh and ready for moisturising. The shake to activate formula allows skin to benefit from mattifying powders, while ingredients including Community Trade organic tea tree oil, tamanu oil and white willow bark extracts ensure skin looks matte, without drying.

  • Removes traces of make-up, cleanser and impurities
  • Mattifying powders leave skin shine-free
  • Clinically proven to give clearer-looking skin

The retail price is $11.50 right now there is a 25% store wide sale which makes it $8.63. Also if you purchase one of their new honey products you can use the promo code HONEY and get free shipping on your purchase!

My initial reaction was that it was very cooling to the face and that a little squeeze goes a long way. For those that do not like a strong smell, this one has a bit of one because it has that true tea tree smell, but once you swipe it across your face the smell goes away.  What surprised me that I thought my face was clear of my makeup since I used a face wash before hand, and I was wrong.  I still had some of my foundation on and it seemed to all come off on that one cotton ball.  I wasn’t prepared for that.  So it definitely removes traces of make-up and cleanses like it says.

As for the impurities, the only impurities that I have are a small amount of black heads on my nose and a bit of pink in my cheeks. My nose seemed to have cleared up a bit, but nothing really works on my pink parts of my skin. I’m not sure if that is part of the impurities that are covered for this toner.  While I do not have a lot of break outs and my skin is normally clear, I can contest that any type of tea tree is great for acne.

I’ve never really had any product that I have disliked from The Body Shop so I’m usually pleased with anything I buy.  The only thing I wish was that it came in a mini bottle to try out. I doubt I’ll use this whole thing.
