Pros: actually improves the look of skin, handy pump application, light but not drying
Cons: smells strong

I'm a big fan of tea tree oil, but I don't normally spring for tea tree products simply because I can add the oil to my own products at home, however, I do really like The Body Shop's Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion.  I have tried mixing a drop or two of tea tree oil into moisturizer for the same effect, but somehow it just doesn't seem to provide the same results.  Because this night lotion is in the company's Tea Tree line, it isn't as rich as some of the other night lotions, which tend to be thicker and more intensive for overnight hydration.  It's somewhere in between a light day lotion and a heavy night lotion, and even though it's lighter in texture, it doesn't dry my skin out.

My skin is somewhat on the dry side, and especially so in the winter, and this lotion is just enough moisture for me at night, so sometimes I'll mix it in with a thicker night cream, although it would suffice on its own.  I have found that this lotion actually does decrease the look of blemishes, which surprises me since there are so many blemish and acne products that just don't seem to do anything. I have put this lotion on at night and actually seen an improvement in my skin the next morning.

The only thing I don't love about the Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion is the smell, but anything with tea tree oil in it is going to smell at least a little bit like it, so there's no getting around it.  The smell isn't strong, though, so it's definitely bearable.

    Great product to reduce spotty and troublesome areas. Does not work on redness, but it will help with blemishes and breakouts without being hard on your skin. It also blends well and is not greasy, and it does not leave residue on your face either. It is definitely a part of my skin care routine. Read more
