When I brought this product nor it was getting any great reviews nor did it fit into my most reached products.
I kept it. Sitting right there staring at me and yelling use me use me! Lol
I have used this moisturiser all summer last year, alongwith fab Indias tea tree face wash. It was like a tea tree phase for me which ended as soon as summers did.I wanted to stay with proactive for a while, as I often feel it dries my skin too much and wanted to try something else which would work for blemishes/new acne/oil/shine.
I brought this in the offer when it was buy 3 for 15 dollars or something from 2 ranges’ got the vit-c peel off mask, tea tree clearing wash and tea tree clearing lotion.
If apart from this you need a review of the other 2 products let me know. Am more than happy to stick to them and use them constantly and hence finish them off (and yes I will do it because I know I have to give in a review)
So when I brought this it would in the offer cost me let’s say about 5 dollars i.e. Rs 250.
And right now on the body shop India website it is going for Rs 645 .
So in the summers I applied it after washing my face in the morning and followed up with Khadi Rose water.
The texture is very light and watery.You would be able to see it from the pictures below.
The tube packaging is pretty neat and bright green like the body shop tea tree range.
Quantity is 50 ml.lasted me 3 summer months one time use daily.
When I first started using it I hated the smell. It stung on my skin and it was the most pungent tea tree extract smell from any product I have ever used.
I later got used to it.
It did keep my face off shine. No blotting whatsoever needed.I used it every single day in the morning and only saw a slight disappearance of my blemishes. It wasn’t enough to convince me that this product is good.
There are about 9 products in the body shop tea tree range including washes,mask,lotions and blotting sheets.
I have personally tried only 2.
Their clearing wash in this range is listed as a bestseller on the body shop India website.
The Goods and the Bads
Thumbs up for The Body shop Tea Tree Lotion
- • Keeps shine off face for more than 12 hours.Tried and tested while travelleing . 🙂
- Tea tree anything is supposed to be good for blemishes.
- I like the texture
- Cute packaging
Bads about The Body Shop Tea Tree Lotion
- Does nothing for blemishes. Works great in keeping off shine only. And oiliness too.
- The smell is intolerable.
- Irritated my skin a little the first use
- My boyfriend ,who has dry skin actually stumbled on this and used it and developed redness and super stretchy skin the very moment he put it on.
- Does not really work on acne
- Cannot be used instead of moisturiser .
I might repurchase this product for the shine and oil control it gives me, oil control is the first step towards not letting acne build up 🙂

was eyeing this since summers are coming , and now i know , i have to stay away … thnkoo flygirl :))
i thought this would be good, is there any product which works reallie great on oily skin…….
alo ladies.buy it if u just need shine control.like a primer.nothing else.the blemishes remain as red and as brown as they were before using this.
Thats right flygirl!!I have used this n its only 4 shine control :yes: !!It does’nt do much to heal acne and scars.. :((
I dont think I’d spend Rs 645 just for getting rid of oil! he he…Thanks for the review Fly girl!! 🙂
me too caliiiiiiiiiiiiii……………….
Nice review fly grl………… :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo: :waytogo:
hasn’t your proactive removed your blemishes and acne redness ??
no cali do not!~after all what are reviews nd imbb sistas for?
😀 😀 :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :thanks: :-* :-* :-* :-*
there are so many chemicals in this product I would never purchase from the body shop . it is so expensive and yet their products are not that great in my opinion .
Have you tried Om Ved products they have a shop in the InOrbit Mall . Yes , they products are pricey but I go for the cheapest item like their soaps like the lavender and calendula baby soap .
It is great and has no negative ingredients and is all natural . cost is about 272 mrp .
I also love Karigar which is in the same mall in inorbit mall here in mumbai . :star:
shreya i use proactive on and off.the moment am on it it takes all away but i cant be on it for too long coz of teh dryness thats am am out looking for alternatives.for the while i use it i do not need anything else at all.but its not always affordable and effective.
va ill defintly giv it a shot whn i can.
i do not stay in mumbai 😉
leme knw if its in delhi sumwhr
i stay near delhi
proactive seems very drying …. you tried any moisturizer to combat its dryness?
yes shreya many infact its green tea moisturiser itself works well.but not all the time can i use proactive.
i am on a lookout for more herbal and less chemically composed acne medications.
I got it last summers!!..never really liked it…it does nothing really! 😐 😐
agree anupam!just the shien works good on
i dont get body shop products in my city so for oil control i stick to Lotus tea tree gel (i mix it with my rose water and use as toner ) and after moisture i pat lactocalamine on my acne prone Tzone .. it controls my oil all day for good 5-6 hrs 🙂
hopefully this regime wud work even in summers too 🙂
err…..your post is so funny fly girl…………..lovved going through it…………..you have the comploete range of tea tree ?:) ?:) ?:) ?:)

:yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
nice review Fly girl! I’m using this currently since about a month along with the night lotion from the same range. It seems to be working on my blemishes..it has lightened some of the red scarring and improved the texture of my skin too. I guess its the combined effect of the two. I like the fact that this lotion controls oil for a good time! I also find it more moisturizing that my neutrogena moisturizer. But at 645 bucks its too pricey! You got a really good deal 3 products fr $15 :waytogo:
ankita am glad it worked for someone atleast!u :yahoo: :yahoo: :yahoo:
maybe yes its you using two products.
that was a superb deal.i still have to finish the vit c peel!
and as far as tbs treatments go i do not thing they are very effective.body butters good.
lipsticks okey and stuff but treatments ummm not sure.
gabbar i got only 2
Me too on the lookout for the perfect acne cream. My skin breaks out a lot during those days 🙁
I was going to get this one so though of checking out the review first, definitely not going for it now 😛
Thanks a ton ! 🙂
@arch am sorry i forgot to do that.next time onwards surely!
it just get absorbed leaving a semi matte finish later drying into compltly matte.
and vit c yes give me 2 weeks to try it .2 times a week i will coz its a peel off and i have some active breakouts right now.
bee mee too kuch mile to leme knw as well
