The Body Shop Tea Tree range

As someone with oily skin prone to angry breakouts I have always relied on stripping, chemically laden products to keep things under control. While there's certainly nothing wrong with that I have read increasingly about the benefits of products that contain natural oils like tea tree, which has an antibacterial effect and can actually help control sebum production. 

I took advantage of a 40% off offer The Body Shop was running a while back and purchased a few products from their range. It's worth signing up to their mailing list if you find paying their full price tags makes you feel a bit faint. I'm a budget girl at heart and they are literally always running promotions that get you 20-50% off depending on your total spend.

The facial wash in this range is gel based but not nearly as stripping as its Clearasil and Garnier counterparts. My skin feels so unbelievably clean after using this but never tight or dry. It's also dramatically improved my blackheads which, although just a fact of my skin type, aren't nearly as noticeable.

The night lotion is something I bought after feeling like my old Simple night-time go-to was suffocating my face. Where before I would wake up with greasy skin this moisturises just the right amount and keeps oil under control.

Neat tee trea oil is something I apply to any spots or redness after cleansing and moisturising. It doesn't work quite as quickly as strong chemical remedies but it does the job and there's no dry, cracked look to the skin that many treatments leave you with around spots.

I can highly recommend giving this range ago if you have problem skin - mine is improving by the day! You can find the whole range on the Body Shop website.
