The Body Shop Skincare Haul

Hi Everyone!

As you may have already gathered, I really like The Body Shop skincare products. The tea tree oil line has been great for controlling and preventing acne.

Check out my reviews:

Tea Tree Oil Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution (I don’t think they sell this anymore)

Tea Tree Oil Targeted Gel Blemish Stick

Colour Adapting BB Cream

The Body Shop was having a Buy 2, Get 1 Free sale, so I decided to pick up products that I haven’t tried yet. If you’ve read my Beauty Recommendations post, you’ll know that a lot of other tea tree products were recommended. I chose three of the tea tree oil products, an aloe cleanser and the pink grapefruit exfoliating gel scrub.


Tea Tree Oil – I tried this out already and it’s not oily like the Tarte Maracuja Oil (which I was expecting), it was similar to the Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution. It smells very strong (more than the solution).

  • Targeted care for blemished skin
  • Can be used direct on skin or for facial steaming
  • Soothing
  • Does not dry out skin

Tea Tree Oil Anti-Imperfection Night Mask – I have not tried this yet, but I’m excited to see how well it works.

  • Skin instantly looks and feels refreshed, purified, and soothed.
  • In the morning, imperfections* appear reduced.
  • Skin looks healthier, smoother, and mattified.
  • Improves appearance of pores.
  • Helps maintain clearer-looking skin.
  • Tone, texture, and oiliness
  • Features a refreshing memory-gel texture and is infused with tea tree oil grown in the foothills of Mount Kenya.
  • Alcohol-free, no pillow-staining formula.
  • TOP TIP: Pop the Night Mask in the fridge for an ultra-refreshing feeling.

Tea Tree Oil Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner – I haven’t tried this yet because I recently picked up the Thayers Witch Hazel toner and just started using it. I didn’t want to try too many new products all at once.

  • Refreshing, purifying toner
  • Made with purifying tea tree oil from the foothills of Mount Kenya
  • Removes residual make-up and impurities
  • Shake-to-activate mattifying powders reduce shine
  • Skin appears visibly clearer
  • Pores appear tighter

Pink Grapefruit Exfoliating Body Scrub – I’ve used their body scrub before, but they’ve reformulated it since then. I’ve tried the one that’s more like a sugar scrub. This one is interesting because it’s a gel texuture, but then when you rub it in, you can feel the grittiness of it. It smells refreshing and it works well. Is it worth $22 though? I’m not sure.

  • Body exfoliator
  • Smoothes and refines skin
  • Buffs away dead skin cells
  • Leaves skin beautifully softer and refined
  • Fresh, energizing gel texture
  • Energizing scent

Aloe Vera Gentle Foaming Wash – This is very light and I like that it’s foamy. My sensitive skin hasn’t reacted to it, but it is a bit pricey when it’s regular price.

  • Formulated for sensitive skin
  • Pure Community Trade aloe from Campeche, Mexico
  • No added fragrance, color or alcohol
  • Formulated without preservatives

I will post reviews of the Tea Tree Oil products once I’ve tested them out properly.
