Review: The Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash

Facial wash is the primary thing that is found in the vanity of every girl. Whenever you feel your face to be dirty or messy, you just head to the washroom to clean the mess out. As I have always told you that facial skin is the most sensitive skin and needs an extra care than rest of your body. Different people have different types of skin ranging from normal to dry to oily. Some even have combination skin where ‘T’ zone (forehead and nose together) is oily, while rest of the face is either dry or normal.


People having combination and oily skin are more prone to acne and blemishes. I know that like every other girl, you hate being breaking out. You always want to keep your face oil free and clear, so that it doesn’t develop the slightest of acne. Acne can be caused not only by oil, but also by dirt and pollutants.

Today, I have come with a product that is meant for people, who have combination or oily skin. The product is ‘The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash’. Tea tree has been known to combat acne and blemishes, and the Body Shop’s product is no exception to it. Besides, it provides many other benefits. Read on the review to know more about the product.

What Does the Body Shop Claim About the Product?


This refreshing, soap-free body wash is effective on blemished skin. It is anti-bacterial and is made up of a triple blend of natural active ingredients, which includes tamanu oil, lemon tea tree and tea tree oil. No harmful chemicals, like Triclosan, GMOs, Phthalates and Sulphates have been used in the preparation of this product.

My Verdict on the Product


Each moment I open the bottle, I could smell the refreshing tea tree aroma, oozing out of the bottle. The fresh green color adds to the refreshing aroma and it soothes you more. You just need to take out the little quantity of the product and apply over the wet face, massaging in the circular direction for a minute. As you apply it on your face, I can assure you that you will be lost in its cooling sensation. After massaging for a minute, rinse it off and pat your face dry for a moment, followed by a gel based moisturizer or crème. If you do not find a need to apply any moisturizer, don’t apply. One of the biggest positive points of this calming face wash is that it does not make your skin dry, thereby, retaining the natural essential oil for the body.

Pros and Cons of the Product



  • Refreshing face wash with cooling effect
  • Lives up to its claim of clearing skin
  • Does control acne and blemishes
  • Does not dry up your face
  • Totally cost effective and value for money as compared to other products by the same range.


  • Since the product lives up to its claim, I cannot come up with any flaw or negative points in it.
