I’ve been using the Tea Tree & Witch Hazel range from Boots for about 2-3 weeks now, and I haven’t been disappointed…
I felt it was time to change my skincare range when I had a small breakout on my forehead, there not spots but little under the skin bumps- so frustrating and I need them gone. I’m pretty sure the breakout isn’t anything to do with my old skincare routine, but more to with my doctor changing my pill- why do they do that, it’s so annoying haven’t they heard the motto ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!’. Anyway I thought it was about time I reviewed my skincare routine, I have very sensitive skin, and have suffered with eczema since a young age so I have to be extremely careful what products I use.
I’ve been using six products from the Tea Tree range; foaming face wash, exfoliating face scrub, cleansing & toning lotion, shine control day moisturiser and night treatment gel.
MY NEW SKINCARE MUST HAVES…
Foaming Face Wash (150ml £4.19)
Being one of the best sellers within the range I had high expectations for this product. I’ve been using this every morning and evening, I have to say it’s incredible! It leaves your face feeling super fresh, hydrated and removes makeup so easily.
Exfoliating Face Scrub (150ml £4.19)
I’ve only used this a couple of times so far as I tend to exfoliate once a week, but again happy with the results. Its not harsh like other face scrubs I’ve used! It left my skin so feeling so smooth.
Cleansing & Toning Lotion (150ml £3.99)
I’ve been most impressed with this product only because up until now I’ve not used a toner in my skincare routine. Personally I think the lotion is extremely effective, it removes any last traces of make-up and cleanses your skin at the same time. After using it my skin feels super clean, and completely refreshed. The only thing I would say is be careful using it close to your eyes because the strength of the Tea Tree makes your eyes water slightly- well it does mine.
Shine Control Day Moisturiser (75ml £4.19)
I’ve been using this daily after I have cleansed my skin within minutes my skin is soft, smooth and shine free. It works great as a make-up base however because of its silky gel texture, make sure you allow it a few minutes to absorb fully before you start applying your make-up. I have to say when I first purchase this I was apprehensive about the texture, as all the other moisturisers I have tried over the years have been more of a cream formula. Now that I have seen the results I won’t be using anything else.
Night Treatment Gel (75ml £3.29)
This product is literally incredible, the first time I used this I was astonished by the results. I’ve been applying this every night before bed, when I wake up in morning and I can definitely see that any spots or blemishes have been dramatically reduced! I have found the gel texture melts effortlessly into my skin leaving it feeling incredibly fresh and moisturised.
Spot Wand (3.5ml x2 £4.49)
I tend to use this on top of the shine control day moisturiser or night treatment gel if I have one or two noticeable spots. I think you can feel it work straight away from the moment you apply the product. I love the fact it has a day and night formula- I do however think the night works better than the day in my opinion.
I’m so happy I decided to change the skincare routine, I feel the Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Range has changed my skin for the better. The range is very reasonably price and is usually in the 3 for 2 promotion Boots run on selected skincare and indulgent body care. I’ve still got the small bumps under my skin on my forehead but no spots! I will be revisiting the doctors to see if I can be put back on my old pill, hopefully then I will start to see more positive changes. I’ll keep you updated with how my skincare routine progresses over on my Instagram.
