Lush Tea Tree Water

Lush Tea Tree Water (250 g) PHP 575

I'm always on the look out for skincare products that claim to help blemish-prone and oily/combination skin. Lush's Tea Tree Water's been getting lots of love from bloggers and vloggers, but what really convinced me to go out and buy it is when I read one of Elle Fowler's posts on her new blog Dreaming in Blush

It was recently that I discovered that the reason behind the spots on the sides of my face (temples and upper cheeks) was because of my pillow case. From that day on I would lay a small towel on top of my pillow case, use it for two nights (one side per night), then change - the bumps and spots on the sides of my face started to subside after a few days. Elle Fowler mentioned in her post that aside from using the Lush Tea Tree Water on her face, she also uses it to spritz on her pillow case before bed. I thought it was genius and that was all it took for me to purchase it!

 Most acne busting toners are usually abrasive and contains alcohol, but this is gentle on the skin and isn't drying. Its main ingredient is tea tree oil which many people use as a natural remedy for acne. I include this in my morning and evening skincare routine when I notice that I'm starting to break out, by spraying this directly to a cotton pad then applying it all over my face. For times when I use this throughout the day to freshen up I just simply spritz some directly to my face. Then every night, I spritz some of the toner to the towel I lay on top of my pillow to help the spots and also to prevent it. It isn't too strong either to use everyday for my combination skin, although it might be for people with sensitive skin.

It has a light herbal scent that fades after awhile. I don't know why but I love the simple packaging; it comes in a sleek, all black recycled bottle. Keep in mind to check out the 'best before' date on the bottle before deciding between the 250g or 100g bottle, consider if you'll be able to finish it up before then. My mom and I picked up the bigger one since we're planning on sharing it. As for repurchasing I'm not really sure yet, maybe just the smaller size to use for my pillow at night.

Have you tried the Tea Tree Water from Lush, or any product with tea tree as the main ingredient?

  9. Definitely a smart idea to spritz it on your pillowcase! I'm really bad about changing my pillowcases frequently but I have heard that it's a good idea. I thought this toner was pretty good too!
