The Body Shop Tea Tree Face Mask




What is it?

A pale green tea tree face mask with a thick consistency that is suitable for blemished skin. It claims to be a deep cleansing mask that helps fight blemishes and reduce dirt and oil on the skin.


The Review:

This mask has a creamy thick consistency and is a pale green colour. It comes in a tub rather than a squeezy tube which can be troublesome as we all know that tubs of products can mean a less hygienic product. Other than the packaging though, this product is lovely.

The smell is fresh, clean and as you would expect, this mask overall, is tea tree scented.

The mask glides on in a smooth layer when applied to the skin and does give a slight cooling and tingling sensation, something that I like as it makes me feel like it’s doing something.

I left it on for about 12 minutes and although I felt it get slightly harder, I still didn’t feel it get uncomfortably tight on my face like many other deep cleansing masks. It was also fairly easy to remove and came away nicely with some warm water and a muslin cloth. I generally find masks easier to remove by using a cloth.

Once I’d finished patting my skin dry I noticed my face looked both cleaner, brighter and oil free. Any redness on recent blemishes was also slightly diminished and after  a few weeks of using this I found my skin was overall less oily.


Worth the money?

The mask will set you back £10 and last you a long time. If you have oily or acne prone skin, this product is absolutely worth every penny. Tea tree soothes and cools whilst improving the appearance of and helping to prevent break out.

The Body Shop – Haul and Initial Thoughts

What I Purchased:


If you’re a Body Shop fan like me then I strongly suggest you go and get a members card if you haven’t already. This entitles you too free gifts every now then, a birthday gift and lots of discounts. It’s very easy to get one, just head to your nearest shop and ask, takes less than 5mins! This little haul would have been fairly expensive but I saved a packet because of my members card so I have listed the full prices below but certainly didn’t pay the full amount 🙂

The Body Shop is also always a great one for deals, they often have a huge selection of different products in varying sizes in there ‘3 for £20’ section on their website.

Madagascan Vanilla Flower Shower Gel: £8

Tea Tree Face Mask: £9

Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream: £4

Sweet Lemon Lip Butter: £4

All-in-One BB Cream: £12

Green Tea and Lemon Scented Candle: £10

Madagascan Vanilla Flower Show Gel:

Gorgeous musky vanilla smell, not too sweet and lathers beautifully. This scent just feels really indulgent.

Tea Tree Face Mask:

I already use the tea tree mattifying moisturiser from this range so I thought I’d give the mask a go. This has a thick creamy consistency and is a pale green colour, it feels cool and tingly on the skin but not uncomfortable and is perfect for problematic skin as tea tree is a great spot treatment. Even if you have fairly good skin this is a good preventative measure.

Seaweed Mattifying Day Cream:

I actually got this for free, if you spent over a certain amount you got a free gift. I have used it a couple of times under my make up as just like my usual tea tree moisturiser it’s great for day time because its mattifying so its perfect if you have oily skin.

Sweet Lemon Lip Butter:

I love The Body Shop’s wide range of lip balms and butters, there’s definitely something for everyone and these screw top ones last aaaages! I got the sweet lemon scent and it tastes like it smells – yummy. I’m not a huge fan of mint lip balms or butters but this deliciously fruity one is lovely and the packaging is cute too!

All-in-One BB Cream

Just like the L’oreal BB cream, this comes out white and blends to a skin colour as applied. I’ve only worn it once and thought it was very nice, the only thing is that I would say even the lightest shade is fairly dark for a supposedly light shade. It’s also very warm so this isn’t great if you have very fair skin. For the moment I have a bit of a tan so the colour is good but unless they bring out more shades this will be a ‘when I have a tan’ only product. I will be trying this out more and doing a full review in a few weeks.

Green Tea and Lemon Scented Candle

I love candles and prefer fresh fruity scents rather than super sweet ones. This green tea and lemon one is gorgeous, the packaging is beautiful and I will definitely be checking out the other scents available from The Body Shop.
