When I was a teenager, one of the first skincare products I started using was something with Tea Tree, so anything with tea tree takes me back to those days. Even though I used to use tea tree products a lot, I stopped using them that often, might be because of growing up and finding more fancy products to use. I like night masks so when I saw the release of The Body Shop Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask, I just couldn’t miss it. Also good that I didn’t miss it!
I got The Body Shop Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask with The Body Shop British Rose Petal Soft Gel Toner when it first came out some months ago and I’ve been using it since then. It took me a while to get used to the consistency of the mask, but once you get over it, it is all good! The Body Shop Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask is specifically formulated to care for oily skin and imperfections. It is infused with salicylic acid (it is used for fighting the appearance of blemishes and for better skin clarity) and tea tree oil(known for its acne-fighting properties). If you have oily skin and prone to getting spots then you might want to check this out.
Consistency of The Body Shop Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask is a little strange. It is green, lightish green. It is like bouncy and watery jelly, and when you put on your face it turns into almost watery gel. When you dip your finger in the mask, it just feels weird, but don’t let this put you off. Due to the consistency, skin absorbs it quickly and the skin doesn’t feel tacky. The jelly formula also has a cooling effect. That would be a great addition to spring/summer skincare routine. You can even put it in the fridge for an ultra refreshing feeling. Also, you don’t need much of that mask. The first time I used it, I got way more than I needed and ended up covering my face, neck, chest, everywhere with it! It also has that unique tea tree oil fragrance, luckily it doesn’t linger around long.
Depending on the products I use, some mornings I’d wake up with oily skin in the morning. Luckily when I use this night mask, it doesn’t get as bad. It controls the oil and gives baby smooth skin. I must also add that if I use heavier products before using the mask, I end up having a little oilier skin, however, it is not as bad. Even though it is lightweight, it gives the perfect hydration and the skin looks healthier. How often do I use it? It depends on my skin’s condition. If I have a spotty period, I use it every other day which helps my skin. I don’t see any problem with using it every night as well.
Would I recommend it? I would recommend it to anyone, however, bear in mind that this won’t make your pimples disappear magically in a day, but with continuous use, skin gets better and looks fresher. It definitely works on blemishes and reduces the redness, just give it a time to make its magic. It is light and it won’t get the skin sensitive or cause redness. The mask is alcohol-free so it is suitable for sensitive skin as well. I don’t have cystic acne, however, I read so many reviews/comments about it actually working on cystic acne. If you have cystic acne and looking for a product that would actually work, maybe you should consider giving this one a try. It doesn’t have a hefty price tag, it is just £12, so worth adding it to the list!
