The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash
The Body Shop says:
Prevent blemishes and remove excess oil with a refreshing gel-bashed facial wash that won’t over-dry your skin and is gentle enough for daily use. How it works:Lemon tea tree and Community Trade tea tree oil from Kenya contain properties that help fight blemishes and prevent new ones from forming.Tamanu oil from Madagascar has a soothing effect and helps to calm irritation and redness.
So on with the review. It's a clear green gel that doesn't produce much lather. At first sniff I did NOT like the scent. It's grown on me though and it now smells like something medicinal. It's had to describe but I do like it now. IT CAN be drying so beware if you have dry skin. For me it dried the first few times then my skin got used to it. I do notice that it helps control oil. My skin doesn't get as oily as it used to. One thing that I HATED about this is that the first three weeks I used this I always had a painful pimple on my face. Granted most times they weren't visible and it was only one it was still highly annoying. Now that my skin has gotten used to it, I don't get them anymore. It cleans really well, I don't have any problems removing my makeup.

I honestly don't know whether to recommend it or not. It works really well NOW but for the first three weeks it was a big miss. I think I like my Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit cream better. And it's cheaper too.c
