When I first started using this wash I had a very mild acne and only a bit of scarring. Three months later and my face has NEVER BEEN WORSE. I don't know why I didn't stop using this product immediately. The damage it did to my face is unreal. At the time I thought my breakouts were due to other reasons, so I didn't stop using it. I had such high hopes for tea tree since everyone said it fought blemishes and whatnot. It didn't. I didn't even finish the bottle before throwing it out. Definitely would not repurchase.

This is a nice face wash, I'm already on my second bottle. It helps mattify the skin and my face has become cleaner since I've dtarted using it. It's pretty expensive though, and can at times feel like my face is being pulled.

I have very sensitive combination skin, an oily t zone, am super prone to breakouts around the mouth. I bought this on a whim at the mall a few years back, and I've stuck with it ever since. Not only does it smell great, feel great on the skin(nice, cool cleansing) but you can actually feel it working as you wash. Only downside is it can really dry you out. I went down to washing my face just once a day and it works great for me.

I got this a week or two and I am thinking this is what broke me out. I got cysts on my chin and I never get those! I was thinking maybe it is the stress that is causing my acne, but I shall wait and see. One more week and if there are no improvements I will stop using it or use it once a week.

Here are some pros and cons

Pros
Smells nice; herbal minty leafs
Packaging
Not greasy

Cons
Causes blemishes
Dries out skin

Works super well. The face wash smells nice and gives me a very fresh feeling. Same thing with the toner and moisturizer. The moisturizer has a matte finish and controls oil well. Doesn't have any shine. The spot oil treatment works well too. I have been using this for the past few weeks and my skin is very noticeably clear! Clearest it's been in a long time! I'm very pleased with these products and would definitely recommend.

Iam halfway through my 2nd bottle of the face wash.First was from a tea tree line travel kit.I use this during the summer.The bottle from travel kit worked well at controlling my acne along with the other products in the kit last summer.So i went in to the store which was miles away to buy the full sized products.It dries out my skin so much that i start to see shine within 10 minutes after using it.Makes me break out more too :(.

I used this as a teenager, when I'd just gotten my period and my hormones were all over the place. This had a very distinct, herbaly smell; cleaned my face well and somewhat reduced the oiliness. However, I didn't think it helped reduce or combat my blemishes at the time. Thankfully I only bought the small bottle. Never repurchased after finishing it.

Recently , i have very bad acne breakouts and decided to give BodyShop's tea tree line a try whether it is as claimed will clear out acne . Sadly after using this facial wash for quite sometimes it did nothing much . The smell is nice but definitely not the effect. I guess the magnitude of my acne breakout is too strong for this wash to calm it down. I am using Lush's Angel on Bare Skin now which greatly helps to calm my acne breakout even just after the first wash.

Wish I had consulted MUA before buying this, but I just bought a mini size for the gym. Doesn't help my skin, but it doesn't hurt it either. The cap broke.

Another disappointing product from TBS Tea Tree OIl line. I really wanted this to work for my oily, acne-prone skin but unfortunately this face wash doesn't work for me. Although it did a great job of making my pores look less visible, after a week of using it I started to get several large painful lumps under my chin and forehead. I think this is because this product is too irritating for me - it can also be quite drying if you don't dilute it before applying ( i.e. apply product into hands, lather together, submerge one hand into water before lathering together again and then applying)
