The Body Shop Tea Tree Facial Wash Review


By Candy akka Dipti



Those were the words when i went to THE BODY SHOP for buying something else and i end up buying this too.

Of course, for someone like me  with acne prone skin anything that contains tea tree oil would be the first preference . So was mine. So I was very happy with my purchase.

  • My experience with the Product :It does smell like it contains tea tree oil. It has gel like texture and very light. It is mild, feels good on skin and my skin doesnt feel dry after using it. But it doesnt do wat it claims.Doesnt prevent break-outs. I agree with one thing only that it controles excess oil. And yes i tried it many times because i thought its because of my diet. But simply doesnt prevent break outs.
  • Pros:Smells like it contains lot of tea tree oil (its a gud thing for First impression) lol
  • Gel like texture and very light
  • It’s Mild and feels Good on skin.
  • Skin doesnt feels dry after using it.
  • Controles Excess oil.



It says prevent blackheads but nope nope. It doesnt.

Will I Buy THIS again? :NO WAY! May be it will suit someone else or work for someone with normal skin. But its definetly doesnt work for sensitive, combi, acne prone skin.

  1. I have this one and I have normal skin so I don’t have any problem with it. I love the fresh feeling it gives me 😀 However I would rather get the fab india one next given it is a cheaper and good alternative.

  2. but seriously i have their tea tree oil and it was just soothing for my skin and nothing else.
    small bottle costed so much and result was less then average.

  3. I had this one…bought it thinking and hoping it would do some good…But it is just a harmless and good smelling facewash that just doesnt do anything in particular!!…me not buying it again either!! :-)) :-))

  4. saved pplz from spending money to wrong thing.
    by the way.. any one wid acne prone skin can buy lush herbalism. ITS JUST MOST AWESOME FACE WASH/SCRUB I HAVE EVER SEEN>!!! NO BREAKOUT NO BLACKHEADs NOTHING>!!!

    why m i screaming lol 😀

    • I am using lush herbalism .it is more of a cleanser and a does give breakouts to me sometime but yes i don suffer from black heads nowadays..and it is soothing also for the skin 🙂

  5. i can understand your pain candy / dipti…me too acne prone and 365 days a year i have at least 1 acne on my face :-(( :-(( i don’t think theres any product that “prevents” acne/pimple….is it? can anybody answer??

  6. Good Morning girls..

    Yeah my derma also said that, no product cant STOP acne..severity of the breakout can only be by them. Else jab tak we have hormones and hair on face we will get acne if you have been…awww…by the way infection of facial hair roots also causes acne, its called folliculitis..

    • Goodmorning Mitra..i so agree but few ingredients seriously work like neem , chandan, turmeric..they some where help in reducing them .rest depends upon diet and all.

  7. Hello beauties…

    Nice post anamika.Well I must say I have used this and sadly didnt work for me either.However I will tell you worked for me and when I say worked I mean got me hooked!! Its the garnier pure active range (contains salicylic acid + herba soothe)

    I am in my early twenties and my skin (was nt anymore touchwood) had very stubborn acne marks (and loads of horrible ones) on my forehead that were there for past 2 years and after conitnuous use of garnier facewash+toner for a few weeks i have noticed a drastic takes a lot for products to impress me cuz i have used evrythin from clinique to clarins to dermatologist recommended stuff bt yea nthing worked bt this did.Im nt sure if garnier has released this range in India bt yea if they have then I would strongly suggest you try it and post a review for your followers!!:)

  8. Hello beauties 🙂 .. I have a sensitive,combination and acne prone skin 😛 and what works best for me is Saslic DS foaming face wash and it is really gud for all those for whom Salicylic acid works and benzyl peroxide doesn’t work.. Give it a try 😀
