THE BODY SHOP - TEA-TREE ACNE CURE

I have been blessed with an ACNE free skin, but unfortunately my husband dear is not. He is obvioulsy past his teens, and still has to struggle with some serious, stubborn acne. There are these acne free days/months in his life too...probably the happiest ones...but once that 'Acne Attack' starts, it takes months to get rid of them and years to get rid of the scars left behind.

After almost a year of hiatus, his acne re-surfaced....He tried every product available, but in vain. Later we realised that anything with salicylic acid in it worsens the situation....time to switch products...

I am a certified aromatherapist, so i knew the importance of Tea-tree oil in Acne cure. But, my hubby dear was 'eh'....now, when his face started looking like a moon with craters, he reluctantly agreed to try TEA-TREE stuff....


BLEMISH FADE NIGHT LOTION

This lotion is to be applied at night. Its a non-greasy stuff and smells, well just like tea-tree oil. Infact all the products smell same...just like the oil. This comes in a tiny pump bottle.


TEA TREE OIL

This oil is from walgreens. Its pure essential oil. I mix it with a light Aloe-vera gel and kept it in a jar. He applies this gel in the evening. This can be a bit drying, but for him its working because his face oozes oil like oil mines in Gulf countries...



TEA TREE FACE WASH

This is a face fash, from Body shop and it has the same tea tree scent.



FACE WASH

He uses it twice a day, at times three times a day. This is a bit drying aswell.



TEA TREE FACIAL EXFOLIANT

The exfoliant is to be used twice a week (suggested by the store person).


FACIAL EXFOLIATOR

I find the grains a bit hard, harsh...like grainy types. I did use is once out of curiousity...It sure is rough....

Hubby dear has been using this past 4 weeks and we are surely seeing some improvement. Newer acne has not been irrupted and his face looks pretty ok. But i didn't see significant change in scar. Blemishes have faded a bit, i dunno...,may be i am making that up....Well, i didn't expect it either, simply because scars and blemishes take ages to diminish, let alone disappear.

More information about Tea-Tree oil here.

I found these products at
