Wow, I'm surprised at all the terrible reviews this got! I actually enjoyed this cleanser. It's definitely not a cure for acne - but I think it would keep acne at bay and help clear up any minor blemishes. I probably wouldn't repurchase because I had to order it online and I'm always trying new cleansers!
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LOVE THIS FACE WASH! first i got a small travel size bottle as a free gift and ever since that, i could see the difference in my face, blemishes started to fade and i hv less breakoiuts. i am now on my second bottle and will continue using this face wash again and again! and a huge bottle lasts me about 4 months as i wash my face twice a day, thrice if my face gets really oily around lunch time.
Not bad. I feel this stuff cleans my clogged pores and leaves a really cool and refreshing sensation. It has a heavy tea tree smell, so you have to watch out not to put this in your eyes. I use this before applying my toner. Not worth as a makeup remover, though.
I'm not sure how well this removes makeup. I first use a Dove soap or a makeup removing cleanser to break up makeup, then I rinse and use a small amount of this cleanser. It has a really nice tingling sensation, which feels cooling and refreshing. I will use it even more in the summer, when you get more oil production due to the heat. Most of the year I have combination to normal/dry skin. This does not dry me out too much, but I wouldn't use it every day on dry skin.
I'm in my third bottle for this cleanser. It worked pretty well on my combi/oily skin and did not have a tight sensation after cleaning. I guess that's a good sign that it doesnt dry up the skin, which tends to occur for most cleansers catered combi/oily skin. Worth a try!
I didn't care for this cleanser at all. I gave the whole line a go & I feel as if the line is all hyped up when it comes to tea tree oil. Tea tree oil is excellent for skin but I feel like this doesn't cut it for these products. Everytime I washed my face it seemed like it didn't get clean or there was still make up on my skin. Even when I used my clarosonic with it, it didn't work that much. The price is not bad for the cleanser, but the toner ran out way faster than the cleanser did [like in most cases]. My skin felt tight at times also which I don't like at all.
I really enjoy this cleanser. I love the smell of tea tree, so that will never be something that bothers me. This cleanser is effective, and it's effective quickly. You only need a dime sized amount to cover your face and neck, just lather in your hands before you apply to your face. It has gotten rid of stubborn breakouts that I've had for ages, which says a LOT. I haven't noticed it drying my skin out at all, which is a huge plus. It's also great at removing makeup which is another HUGE plus. I am pretty sure I'm done heading to the drug store for face washes. When I run out of this, I will be repurchasing again, and again, and AGAIN!
Great cleanser for combo skin. My favorite Body Shop product to date!
I still have oily skin a 50, so I am always trying new cleansers. I really like this- it helps keep my skin clear. It is too drying during really cold weather, but we haven't had much of that in the Northeast this year, so I have been using all winter. I would recommend,
I have a cabinet full of facial cleansing products and none work as well as a basic daily cleanser than The Body Shop's Tea Tree Oil wash. Personally my face is unpredictable, sometimes it is clear and smooth, other times it is oily, acne-prone and other times it is dry and flaky. I have tried Olay, Clean & Clear, St. Ive's, L'Oréal, Nivea, and many others trying to find a balance. I used to get compliments on my clear skin but as I have grown into adulthood it has been harder to manage.
Personally, I like the smell of Tea Tree Oil and have long known the benefits as an acne-fighter, so when I saw this particular product in the Body Shop I was drawn to it. I was pressed for time so I didn't even see the foaming version, which I would have preferred. Foaming or not, this face wash delivers. I only use a dime sized amount and truly feels refreshed and deeply cleansed after. My face doesn't feel tight or dry, and it seems to be helping to treat my spots of acne. It removes make up and feels very soothing to my entire face, especially after a long day.
I also bought the cleansing wipes which work particularly well for refreshing the face when I'm too tired to wash up at night right before bed. For some the scent may be overwhelming or unpleasant, but it does go away after a while. It has a medicinal smell. I will definitely buy this product again and am going to give a bottle to my younger brother who has begun his first rounds of teenage acne. Looking forward to trying the rest of the Tea Tree line.
