Tea Tree Face Mask Review

I love face masks. I love that feeling when you’ve got a face mask on, and your hair soaking up a treatment in a shower cap with your feet up and a cup of tea. The ritual of the face mask has become so much more than what it actually does for your skin, that I forgot that there are products out there that really do improve your skin.

The Body Shop Tea Tree line has long been praised for its treatment of spot prone skin.

I have been using their Tea Tree Face Mask for months for fun, before I realised that it is actually working wonders on my skin.

There’s plenty in there, I have been using huge amounts for about 3 months and I have only used about half. I use it quite frequently just on my problem areas, and then every now and then I will apply it all over my face for a deep treatment.

Being tea tree, it does leave your skin feeling minty fresh. ┬áThat’s the only way to describe it. It tingles. If you have sensitive skin, however, it may be best to use sparingly.

I have really noticed an improvement in my skin since I started using it so I really recommend it to anyone with oily and spot prone skin. Its fun, and it works.

Miracle product: Body Shop Body Butter!

Body Shop Body Butter is officially the best moisturiser I have ever used! Its been around for a while but this is the first time I’ve owned any. I remember a friend in school who used to apply it religiously and she had the softest skin. Now I own some for myself, I feel like I’m finally in on the secret.

I put it on┬álast night after my bath, and this morning my skin feels like it did 5 minutes after applying it! My skin still smells like coconut, its ridiculously soft, and my feet still have that gooey post-pedicure feeling. My hands are softer than they’ve been in months, and I apply hand cream regularly. Normally 5 minutes after moisturising, all traces of moisturiser are gone. But 12 hours after using this product and my skin still has that luxury goddess feeling you get after a hot bath and good moisturiser.

There are so many flavours (scents) that there is bound to be the perfect one for you amongst their vast range. In this house we are coconut heads. We have coconut shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap…and in the kitchen cupboard theres coconut oil, coconut milk, coconut cream. But if coconut isn’t your jam theres shea butter, cocoa butter, mango, satsuma, strawberry, hemp (!?), olive, honey, pink grapefruit and many more.

If this is already your staple moisturiser, well done. If not, don’t waste any more time! This really is a miracle moisturiser.
