Review: The Body shop Tea tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution

A must have product for oily, acne prone skin

I love how effective this tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution is in keeping my skin clear of blemishes. This has become one of my must have products for oily, acne prone skin.



I call this product a Tea tree serum, but it is actually a lightweight pre-serum concentrate. The texture is light and watery. The scent is not too powerful for a tea tree containing product. It feels wonderfully refreshing and cool on the skin. It sinks into the skin quickly and it doesn't feel tacky.

If you go to The Body shop website you will see that this product has many 5 star reviews. It has helped many people with acne. In my case, I started using it when my skin was absolutely clear. Not a single pimple in sight. I bought it because I wanted to keep my skin clear of blemishes. And this wonderful product has done just that.

Here are all ingredients:

Aqua/Water/Eau, Alcohol Denat., Propanediol, PPG-26-Buteth-26, Phenoxyethanol, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil/Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/VP Copolymer, Salicylic Acid, Xanthan Gum, Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil, Disodium EDTA, Medicago Sativa Extract/Medicago Sativa (Alfalfa) Extract, Potassium Hydroxide, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder, Limonene, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citral, t-Butyl Alcohol, Sodium Benzoate, Citronellol, Leptospermum Petersonii Oil, Tocopherol.

I buy this solution either from The Body shop store or on-line directly from their website. It costs £13 for 50ml. Bare in mind that both The Body shop stores and website offer amazing discounts each month. Recently I placed an order with a discount of 40%. The previous month, the discount was 30%. I can't remember ever paying full price for any The Body shop product.

Right now, because of Father's Day,  The Body shop offers £10 off when you spend £25 in store or on-line +free delivery.

So if this is a product you have not yet tried for your acne, you might like to give it a try. I also use The Body shop tea tree oil, their Tea tree mask, Tea tree shower gel and Tea tree toner.

Next, I will review The Body shop Tea tree oil and will compare it to the Korean brand Manyo Factory tea tree oil treatment and Pure essential tea tree oil.

Till next time, Milu

Galactomyces & Bifidalacto Complex products+ Several UPDATES

Did I like using Manyo Factory Galactomyces niacin?

No. I will not repurchase Manyo Factory Galactomycesniacin again.

UPDATE:31/08/17 It has been 7 months since I wrote this post and in that time I've learnt that Niacin is a very well researched skin loving ingredient. I will be purchasing products containing Niacin :-) and hoping it will "shrink" my pores. 

UPDATE:28/11/2017 As mentioned in my previous update, I wanted to try a Niacin product and I chose Dr.Troub Skin Returning Niaten serum with 10% Niacinamide. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and so far so good. I think my pores look more refined, but it could be my wishful thinking that is tricking my eyes. Sadly, this product is only 30ml and at almost £20, I would not be repurchasing it. I hear that The Ordinary have a nice Niacinamide serum and cheaper.

Observations about applying the product and how it felt on the skin

Applying it (Manyo Factory Galactomycesniacin) felt like applying water. No scent, no colour,…

Best calming cream for acne prone skin- Sulwhasoo Herblinic EX Restorative Ampoules review

I first heard about the Sulwhasoo range from one of my favourite Youtubers- Lili. Her blog title is I am a beauty junky and that is also the name of her YouTube channel. I don't remember her reviewing the Herblinic EX Restorative Ampoules but when I researched several Sulwhasoo products she talked about, I found a couple of reviews on Herblinic and was intrigued enough to order samples from Ebay.  I bought 30 samples and they lasted me 15 days ( using them day and night).

From the very first application, my skin was nourished like never before. I could tell that this was one amazing product.



This honey like cream/serum is apparently packed with medicinal herbs which are said to  help nourish and  repair damaged skin. It smells herby and to me that scent is calming. It looks like honey but it spreads easily and little goes a long way. The application can be a bit sticky, but I don't mind that. One sample is enough for my face and neck.


After I used the first 30 samples, my skin…

Review: Naruko Tea tree shine control & blemish clear night gelly

As I am writing this blog post, I glance at the empty tub of the Naruko Tea tree night gelly ( that is the actual spelling on the tub)  I can't bare to throw it away yet. I absolutely loved using it.

But before I tell you anything else about this product, I must tell you this:  This was the best smelling skin care product I have ever used. I bet you are surprised. After all it is called a Tea tree night gelly and as we know tea tree doesn't smell nice at all. But this product does not smell of tea tree oil. Ok, may be there is just a hint of tea tree, but a nice smelling one. To be precise, the gelly smells like a fresh spring morning: crisp and cool, delicately scented as snowdrops  and with a gentle hint of mint. That's why I can't bare to throw away the empty tub yet, I keep on sniffing it...



The gelly applies smoothly and it feels very cool on the skin.  I didn't like that at first because I prefer skin care products that feel warm or at least not cool. But I go…
