It wasn’t until about a year ago that I really got into skin care. Yes, you heard that right. I’ve always made sure to take my make up off before I went to bed at night and I sometimes would use a cleanser and a moisturiser but it wasn’t until a year, that I started investing in more products and building up my own skin care routine. Nowadays I can’t imagine my life without my skin care routine. At least not the night one. I do sometimes lack the energy to do the full routine when I have to get up early in the morning. I’m sure I’m not the only one though. We’re all humans and I belong to the kind, who really appreciate sleep. Just not really a morning person.
In today’s post I’m not going to talk about my entire routine but about one product I’ve been repurchasing every time after having run out of it, so I think it’s safe to say it’s become one of my skin care staples within the last few months.
I’m talking about the The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil. If you’ve ever done any kind of google search on skin care you might have come across tea tree oil and how it’s supposed to be amazing for acne prone skin. I don’t really have, never really had, acne prone skin but for whatever reason I started getting more breakouts when I started university a year ago. Weirdly enough I’ve always had perfectly clear skin until I moved to the Netherlands to start university. I didn’t know whether it was caused by stress or hormones but I did know I wanted to do something against it. Hence I did some google research and came across this little gem. It’s not a magical product, that just makes your skin picture perfect but it has helped my skin to improve immensely in the course of a few months.
Now what I do is, I apply a bit of this oil on all the parts of my face, where I think I need it. Basically I cover any blemishes with this. It took some time but my skin has been improving a lot since then and I just love the refreshing feeling it leaves on my skin. It just feels so clean. Although I’m not really a fan of the smell of this product, as it is quite strong, I love this little oil and I’m so glad I discovered it. If you’re struggling with some blemishes or spots I think this is a great product to get rid of those. It leaves a really refreshing feeling on your skin and most importantly it doesn’t dry it out.
It’s definitely a product I will continue to use because it’s amazing and really affordable!
