Lemon tea tree and Community Trade tea tree oil from Kenya contain anti-bacterial 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.
Direction for Use:
Remove pad from tub and gently sweep over a cleansed face and neck. Dispose of pad after use.
MRP is 695 INR for 40 pads. I got it on 10% discount I guess.
My Take on The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Exfoliating Pads:
I picked this up when I was at the store for the tea tree face mask. I am a sucker for face packs and being an acne-prone combination skin type, I pick any thing that says neem, tea tree, pudina, tulsi etc. So, as I said, I was looking for the face mask when this tub caught my attention and as luck would have it, the face mask was out of stock. Now, it’s not my fault right!!! I had to pick this green little thing as the words like tea tree, black head exfoliating, blemish free skin were screaming out for me.
I really don’t know what I was expecting, but the moment I opened this up, I was disappointed to see the neatly stacked pile of small round wipes right till the top, almost touching the cap. I separated the stuck-together wipes and picked one to try and see what exactly it is for. The strong tea tree fragrance was the only thing I instantly liked.
There is absolutely no information on the packaging about the usage direction. I noticed dozens of raised tiny triangles on one side. I put it back in the tub and checked the TBS site for information and to my surprise, it is not even listed in the whole tea tree range. I checked their USA site then and found the information there (have copied the “what” and “how” from there only!!!)
Full of all the knowledge, I cleaned my face and opened the tub again. Removed one pad and used the raised triangle side first on my whole face and neck. After a minute, did the same thing with the other plain side to wipe off any impurities left. The good thing is that one pad is sufficient for a single application for the face and neck. Yes, it is so wet and really moisturizing. It felt so refreshing and clean after that. I went back to sleep happily. The next morning, I was shocked to see the tiny miny zit that had grown into an angry red mountain. It was like it got the whole lot of nutrition it was craving for in a single night. I was so scared to use this again. Waited almost for a week for the zit to calm down and then used it again.
This time, there were no ugly surprises, but there is nothing positive too. As you can see, I’ve used almost half the pads till now (every night before I sleep), but I couldn’t find any positive or negative changes on my facial skin. I haven’t had any breakouts in this period though!!!! The blackheads, spots everything is as it is. It cleans the face quite effectively I must say, but the whole concept of exfoliating pads fall flat here. Even if you apply a lot of pressure, it is still very mild to exfoliate, and to expect it to remove blackheads is like too much. I don’t really understand why TBS is marketing this as an exfoliating pad. In these 3 weeks, it did nothing for my skin. I like the clean feel it gives, but then that is not the reason I picked it for. Paying so much for cleaning wipes is just not me. Don’t really have anything good or bad to write about this product.
If you pick this, then please avoid using it on already-there pimples and acne. Rest, it is a fabulous cleansing wipe (removes make up even). I wanted to show you all, but remembered the price I payed for this. So, did not have a heart to destroy one wipe just for the demonstration sake.
2 out of 5 (only for the cleansing part).
Get this only and only if you like fancy-looking cleansing wipes that costs a bomb.
