Perfect for Oily/Acne prone skin!
After years of going through many drugstore cleansers to help my acne, I turned to natural products. After researching the benefits of Tea Tree Oil, I found this product. Basically, the benefits of tea tree oil with acne is that its anti-bacterial and anti-septic. In other words, it completely cleanses out your skin, free of the acne bacteria left on the skin.
It has a minty clean smell & a refreshing feeling to the face. If you're not a fan of mint smells, I suggest you try the Seaweed line from The Body Shop. This product is especially perfect for the warmer months because it tends to strip excess oil, without feeling dry. In regards to the acne, it slowly dries them out. But if used in conjunction with a pure tea tree oil (like, Jason's Naturals Pure Tea Tree Oil), the acne will dry out much quicker. I swear by this routine for horrible acne days!
I use this product daily - AM & PM. It's the only face cleanser I turn to! I'm on my fourth or fifth... or maybe even my sixth bottle! Salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide only work for a brief time on my skin, but tea tree oil truly is my acne medication! Plus, it's a great "bang for your buck" type of product. $11 for 8.4 fl oz, easily accessible, AND natural? How could you go wrong with that? =)
This stuff is amazing! I purchased the kit which includes the cleanser, toner, lotion, and tea tree oil. I use it every day and my skin looks and feels good. its also good to use for "that time" ladies. The fact that it feels tingly and smells good, doesn't hurt either.
I usually only use this iin the morning f I fall asleep in my makeup because I am afraid that I will breakout afterwards and this cleanser is AWESOME! It doesn't strip your face and it is not very heavy. I tend to have oily skin and this product is perfect for getting rid of the oil and fully removing the makeup from my face plus it smells nice. Definitely a must
This product is perfect if you have pimple prone skin. It minimises pimples from start and gives your face real coolness. I recommend pairing it with the body shop tea tree oil skin clearing lotion and the new pore minimiser. I love all of them. Great product! In love!
So gentle and clean feeling
I bought the set that comes with the cleanser, toner, lightweight moisturizer, and tee tree oil. I love this cleanser. I have mild acne, nothing too bad. My main concern was finding a cleanser gentle enough for my sensitive, oily/dry skin, and eczema prone issues. This does the job. I haven't noticed a huge change in my acne, but I don't mind that much. The toner is gentle enough so it doesn't burn my skin either. The price isn't bad either. A little over $10 for a cleanser that lasts a long time.

Not so great
I've had acne for a long while now and I was looking for new products/systems to try and help clear up my skin. My friend recommended this face wash with the toner and lotion as well. I bought it in a set and sadly, it didn't didn't help. In fact, it made my breakouts worse, which is too bad because I LOVE the Body Shop! I liked the smell of the products, but not the results.
I saw this being reccomended in a Seventeen Magazine article for keeping oily skin..well..less oily during the summer. With my oily skin, I jumped and immeadiately bought it! Unfortunately, i tend to ignore my skin's sensitivety. After using, I saw no real difference in my skin appearence. However my skin was very tight! I also looked at the ingreadient list which was INSANELY long which is something to avoid. I ended up using this on my back to prevent bacne after getting it from using self-tanner. My back is clear, but I've moved on to a different facial cleanser.
I love it. I use it twice a day. I used to have oily face but this product cures it. And it helps me much from pimples. and this facial wash is very recommended for people who have problems with oily skin and pimples
i use this alot, most days, really helps with the breakouts and keeping them at bay which is great. a bit drying but its not a big deal. My face really feels clean after using.
