when I had bad acne and clogged pores, I used this religiously until I finished the whole jar. it actually made my acne worse. because it contains so little tea tree oil and so many other crappy ingredients.it really doesn't do anything besides give you the tinglely sensation. if you want to use something that actually cleanse, try the blue corn mask, it's way better
I'm usually a big fan of the Body Shop, but this mask caused loads of spots to come up where I've never had them before. I used it twice (just to be sure) and it took about two weeks for my complexion to completely clear up.
Definitely won't be buying this again! Such a waste of £10.
While I love the regular 3-step Body Shop Tea Tree Oil line, this was not a great product for me. Didn't clear my blackheads or make my pores any smaller. It does leave my skin feeling somewhat refreshed, though, and it helps a bit with oil. Maybe I'll mix in some sugar or something to make it a scrub, since I don't want to waste it.
I can't be without this product! Whenever my skin gets a little crazy I exfoliate my face then slap this on. I love the smell of tea tree oil and I also love the cool tingly feeling of having this mask on...and I love how clean and supple my face feels after! I also like how this doesn't soak up a every bit of moisture as my skin is sensitive to drying masks (though next time I try one I'm going to see if keeping it on for only a really short time will work). As a side note, I like to add a bit of calamine lotion to this mask for extra acne-fighting power (I used to use Lush's Fresh Farmacy but I stopped because of how much it costs for a daily use item). If I had the time and money I'd use this every day! :P
i could go on forever about how bad this mask is but thats unnecessary. plain and simple this irritated my skin and didn't not help AT ALL. i would definitely NOT recommend this. just made my skin worse.
My skin: Combination - oily on the t-zone and dry on the cheeks. I also have very sensitive skin.
I normally don't break out, just the occasional 1-2 acne when its the time of the month, but for the pasts month I've been breaking out constantly because of stress. So when I saw that The Body Shop had a 15% on everything in stores if your purchase 2 things, I picked this up as I've heard that tea tree oil helps clear the skin.
So far, I've used it twice and I can already see the results. Any acne present appears less inflamed and any acne scars look lighter. I feel that this product also prevents any break out as I've noticed that incoming acne bumps are gone after using this.
I use this after I get out of the shower, and I keep the mask on for 10-15 minutes (instructions call for 15 min). I kept it on for 10 minutes on my first try because I didn't want irritate my skin as I do have really sensitive skin.
For the first couple of minute, there's a tingling sensation. It doesn't burn but it does tingle and this sensation goes away after like 5 minute. After that, it just feels really cool and fresh. Unlike most traditional masks, this doesn't dry after the intended 15 minutes which does make it easier to rinse off.
As for the packaging, I'm not the biggest fan, but I'm definitely not complaining. The price is alright, don't remember the exact price but it was definitely less than $15 for 10mL of product which isn't too bad as this really works and will last a long time if you use it like 1-2 times a week.
I will definitely repurchase this product as it does help with my acne as well as it prevents any upcoming acne.
I used to use this product years ago back when the packaging was different. I tried it again recently and either the formula has changed or my skin is alot more sensitive these days. I used to love it as it soothed redness and helped minimise blemishes but after uing it a few times recently it has been a different story! Not only did it make my skin super dry and give me a huge flare-up of excema but it also bought several cystic pimples to the surface (now I kept using it and funnily enough the pimples stopped when I stopped using this weekly so I really dont think it was just 'detoxing' my skin as it was fine both before adn after the use of this) All in all it may be a good product if you are super oily but for me it made my skin horrible! AVOID if you have sensitive skin
I really didn't like this product. The biggest con is the packaging. It's horrible! Its so unsanitary and unpleasantly hard to get out of the container without taking more than needed. The smell is just disgusting. Just using this mask once dried out my skin horribly. I will not be purchasing this product again.
This product is good if you use it sparingly and only when you have a breakout. I find that if I use it more often it dries my skin out a little, and if anything worsens the redness! But used when my skin is breaking out it definitely helps, and I quite like the tea tree smell, it feels like it's really cleaning my skin!
I got this as a gift from a friend. I really liked tea tree oil before, but I think witch hazel gets rid of my blemishes much faster.
This didn't quite work for me. It may have been because I used it too often: about 2-3 times a week, because it said to calm down skin, and my skin was often irritated. It was very fun to put on: it is thick and green, and you look like one of those women from cartoons :P The thing is: my skin never got less red after this. I really wanted it to work, but my Clean & Clean blackhead clearing scrub calms my skin down much more than this. This also seemed to clog my pores, which isn't strange when I used it so often: mud masks are supposed to be used every week/2 weeks, not more often tan that - else they're just bad for you. But anyway: this did not work for me. Hope other people have better results with this. Also want to say that this is quite expensive for he amount you et if compared to other mud masks.
