The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner Review

The Body Shop - £5 (Gift*)
Just like the Body Shop Skin Clearing Facial Wash this is a gift from my bestie Jess~ another thank you <3 xD. 

Description from bodyshop.co.uk : "This refreshing toner for blemish skin gives a beautifully matte, skins-free finish."

The toner is made of 2 components; it a has a green liquid and powder that is settled at the bottom of the bottle. You need to shake the bottle, so that both mix together before you use it. Then you simply apply the toner onto a cotton pad to use. 

You'll notice a strong tea tree oil and herbal alcohol scent once you open the bottle, I quite like it but some people may find it overwhelming. I found that this toner removed all traces of sebum, makeup and residue that sometimes my cleanser missed. I have oily skin; I noticed that the toner helped keep my skin matte for a 2/3 hours extra and slightly minified the size of my pores. However, I did not see any difference to my blackheads. After a few months of usage, it helped to prevent pimples from popping up. 

Overall this a great toner, its currently the best toner i've tried so far. I really enjoy using this toner, especially in the morning, as the scent and little stingles give a refreshing kick to start the morning. This is definitely one of the products that contributed to clearing my skin, so I will keep repurchasing it a few times until a find a better one. ^.~ I do recommend it to people with oily/blemish skin to, as it does a brilliant job of remove traces, leaving your skin feeling clean and matte for longer. However, I don't recommend this for people with sensitive skin, since it contains alcohol. It may be a bit harsh.

Rating: 9/10

Pros:
Removes all traces of excess sebum, makeup and residue 
Helps mattify skin for longer
Helps shrink pores
Does not dry out my skin
Helps prevent pimples

Cons:
Some people may find the strong scent overwhelming 
Contains alcohol, so not recommended for people with sensitive skin
Does not get rid of blackheads

Do you use a toner for your skin? ^^

  2. I'm using the hadalabo lotion toner thingy. I really want to try this one though!! I have oily skin too, but I though if I just over moisturise my skin using dry skin type products, maybe my face would produce less oil. Didn't work for me xD
    I've heard good stuff about their tea tree line
