I don’t know about you, but one of our definite #realstudentproblems is waking up in the morning with a huge zit in the middle of our forehead. And nose. And chin. On school picture day. Which is also the same day you’re finally going out for coffee with that friend of a friend that you used to stalk HARD on the gram.

Feel the hypothetical anxiety yet? Well I’m about to introduce you to your new best friend. Yup, this is a friend you’ll literally be obsessed with… One of those friends that always has your best interest and is always there to help. One that has your back. And face. And skin in general. Okay fine that sounds a little creepy; let me explain.

We’re talking about The Body Shop’s Tea Tree line. Were talking BFF for life.

This line is one of the most popular skin care lines at The Body Shop, and for good reason! It’s literally their number one anti-perfection range, and is one of the best solutions you can try for oily skin that’s prone to breakouts! Say bye bye to those nasty little imperfections that come out of nowhere; say adios to that acne that keeps coming back, and say thanks for coming out but I’d rather you just leave to shiny, oily skin that leaves you feeling not so fresh.

Yup – Say hello to gorgeous, glowing, visibly clearer skin thanks to the Tea Tree line. I’m telling you, this stuff works!

Tired of breakouts? Here’s a breakdown of the line:


Step 1

Start with the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Facial Wash. Before you get deep into your skin care routine, you’re going to want to cleanse your face of any impurities from the day. Pollution, sweat, and makeup can all play a factor in regular breakouts.

The best part: It clears away those impurities without over-drying your skin, AND is gentle enough to use every day (which isn’t very common with other blemish treating cleansers).




Step 2

Next up – the Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub. I suggest using this bad boy no more than 3 times a week, as you should with any type of exfoliator, since the skin on your face is sensitive!

The best part: The micro-fine exfoliants have bursting beads to help unclog pores without over-drying. Honestly, the moment you wash it off of your face, your skin will feel softer than it ever has before.

Step 3

Now set the right tone by using the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Toner! This toner will make sure ALL impurities have left the building.

The best part: The ‘shake to activate’ mattifying powder in the formulation helps to give your skin a matte, shine-free finish.

Step 4

Time for the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion. With willow bark, lemon tea tree oil and Community Trade organic tea tree oil, this lotion can be used for daily hydration!

The best part: It doesn’t feel greasy, and is easily absorbed!

Step 5

My FAVOURITE product from the line? Their Tea Tree Oil. It’s like Photoshop crawled into a tiny glass bottle and is there for you when you most need it. Remember those zits we were talking about earlier? Simply take a cotton wad (or a clean finger) and apply a small amount of the oil directly to the blemish.

The best part: It’s clinically proven to give visibly clearer skin in one week. You heard right. One. Week.
