A quick foreword!
This is apparently my first product review post. First of all, yes, I am no beauty guru or someone with a flawless face or whatsoever. But, I thought a little bit sharing and reviewing would be helpful! This review is purely to help people learn if the product is worth buying and to answer questions. I hope you enjoy my very first product review!
So, the first product is The Body Shop's (TBS) tea tree oil.
If you struggle from forehead acne bumps or blackheads, keep on reading this post!
The Body Shop describe its tea tree products to be clinically proven to give clearer skin from one week. Especially for those who are prone to blemishes, blackheads, and oily skin. Moreover, I also read some reviews online that this tea tree oil actually help with bumps and acnes. So, I bought a 10ml of tea tree oil at TBS store (duh, of course) for IDR 119,000 to find out. Anyways, you can find your nearest TBS store here!
Like many of us expected in acne treatment is for it to be completely gone as fast as possible. However, here is the thing that people really need to know: acne also depend on a lot of underlying causes. Thus, it is possibly impossible to get rid of acne completely.
Initial situation: I have lots of small bumps on my forehead and couples of acnes on my cheeks.
So, I applied the tea tree oil using cotton buds on my red acnes and using hands for the bumps. It doesn't instantly get rid or dry the acnes overnight. But, it does calm the inflaming red acnes to not get even worse, it reduces the inflammation on the acnes (maybe) with its antibacterial properties. And for the bumps, it actually dries the small ones and you can easily scrub your face and it will came off easily. After almost 3 months of usage, I learned that this wonderful oil has amazing treatment properties, it prevents acne breakout occurrence in the long run. Although, (of course) it is not an instant treatment for acnes but it does control acnes on your face.
Despite all the wonderful benefits of the tea tree oil, the strong smell of tea tree oil itself might be the the drawback of using this product. Overall, I'm in love with this product mostly because it is an effective natural treatment without any harsh chemicals.
Here is a random fun fact about tea tree oil to sum up this review: you can also use tea tree oil as a deodorant!
