I had a really long battle with pimples and acne since teenage, although my skin is much better now but I do experience them now and then. Also, as my skin is oily so I have to be extra careful with my cleansing routine and products associated with it. I do thorough research of ingredients used before buying any skin care product. Lately I have been reading a lot about the wonderful effects of tea tree oil on oily skin and during my trip to Newly opened The Body Shop store in CP I got the chance to pick their tea tree foaming face wash. As tea tree oil is a very important component so let’s read a little about it:

What is tree tea oil?
Tea tree oil is an extract from a plant native to Australia. It was used as a tropical treatment by the aboriginal people for centuries.

Benefits of Tea tree oil?
Tea tree oil has been used as topical antiseptic and to treat fungal infection. It works very well to reduce Acne, dandruff, ring worm, corns, soothe the itching of insect bites.

Here is what The Body Shop claims about the Product:


A refreshing instant foaming cleanser for blemished skin.
• Gently but effectively cleanses skin
• Removes make-up and impurities
• Regular cleansing will help keep skin blemish-free.


Tea Tree: Our Community Fair Trade organic tea tree oil comes from the foothills of Mount Kenya. Tea tree leaves are picked by hand and steam-distilled to release the oil. Our trade with the Kenya Organic Oil Farmers Association encourages sustainable and organic farming methods which help to preserve the area’s natural biodiversity.

Let’s jump to the Review now:

Packaging: The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser comes in a light green transparent bottle with white cap and a pump dispenser. The dispenser operates very smoothly and dispenses the adequate amount of product.

Texture: The Tea Tree Foaming cleanser has a very light foamy texture which forms leather upon application. It does not feel harsh on skin.

Application: I take out 2 pumps on my palm and then apply smoothly in circular motions with tip of fingers on my face and neck. Kindly make sure to use only adequate amount of cleanser, start with one pump and if you feel it is not cleansing the face properly then you can take out more product. The cleanser gives very cool sensation when comes into contact with the skin.

Result/Verdict: I have been using The Body Shop Tea tree foaming cleanser from past 2 months and I am satisfied with the result I am getting. I have very oily skin and the daily travelling results into dirt, dust and clogging of pores. This cleanser helps cleaning the skin thoroughly hence avoids the acne and pimples, however it does not controls the oil. My T-zone gets oily with in an hour of using this cleanser unlike H2O plus Sea Clear Mattifying Cleansing Mousse which controls the oil for considerable amount of time. However I am adamant to use another bottle due to the magical tea tree oil in this cleanser. Totally recommend it!!


  1. Travel Friendly Packaging.
  2. Foamy and light weight texture.
  3. Feels very gentle on skin.
  4. Contains Tea tree oil which is very good to reduce acne and pimples.
  5. Cleanses the face thoroughly, No oil residuals left behind.


  1. Does not control the oil.
  2. Expensive.
