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. ¬†That’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 of the Month: June

I can’t believe I’ve gone so long without having this as my MPOM, I guess it’s one of those products that are so essential to my routine I just take it for granted. It is the Mario Badescu Drying Lotion (¬£14.50 beautybay.com)

It is the best spot-on spot treatment I have ever had. It combines salicylic acid, calamine, camphor and all other kinds of junk designed to shrink your spots overnight. You apply it with a cotton bud dipped into the pink stuff at the bottom (do not shake the bottle!) and then dab that onto the troublesome area. The spot will reduce overnight, or if it is a spot waiting to come out it will disappear without ever showing it’s ugly head. The salicylic acid fights the spot while the calamine reduces redness and inflammation. Life Hack: also works to take the itch out of mosquito bites.

I can’t recommend it enough. Just remember to wash your face in the morning or you will be walking around with pink dots on your face all day.
