I bought The Body Shop ザ・ボディショップ Tea Tree Blemish Gel after I saw someone using it on youtube….also thinking that it would be a concentrated tea tree gel. But no!! It a light tea tree oil gel. It contains lemon tea tree oil and community trade organic tea tree oil from Kenya that contains properties that help fight blemishes and prevent new ones from forming. They are known for their anti-bacterial benefits. It also contains Tamanu oil from Madagascar that has a soothing effect and helps to calm irritation and redness and community trade organic honey to soothe the skin.The Body Shop claims it is targeted care, soothing, instantly cools without over drying the skin. clinically proven to give clearer-looking skin. A handy portable product that soothes, cleanses and combat blemishes. It doesn’t clog or dry the pores.

It is a convenient portable stick with a lip gloss like packaging with a wand. It is easy to carry around in my bag. The sponge like applicator makes application very easy but I think it’s a little unhygienic as the wand can actually spread the germs when we dab the pimple with the gel and then put the wand back in the container spreading the germs.
It has a light gel like texture. It can be worn under make-up though I have never tried that. I put it overnight but it didn’t dry my pimples. There was a cooling sensation when applied. It didn’t burn or irritate my acne..just did nothing. The only good thing I can think about is it’s tree tea scent!!
It is so small that I could hardly use it for a week…it got over quite quickly. It is an expensive buy at 9 $ for 2.5 ml. But the tube is not even completely filled with this gel and it dries quickly. Fortunately I didn’t pay anything for it as I had some points in my members card. If I had to use my money it would be a different story !!
