THE BODY SHOP TEA TREE BLEMISH FADE NIGHT LOTION REVIEW.



For info of the product click here.

Now i come back to the review...
well, i used this product religiously for 2 months..its the time till i had the product in the bottle...but i want to include that i was highly disappointed with this product.



When applied to the skin it gives a warm feeling, the consistency is non- sticky that is highly suitable for oily skin types. But the main thing that the company claimed that it it improves the texture o blemished skin was highly unfulfilled by this product. I bought this lotion in order to fade away the blemishes on my face but it actually not worked on them. the smell of the lotion is tea tree like. it is very light green in color and sinks into the skin as soon as you apply it giving a matte look.

The overall ratings for this lotion are 2.5/5

Will i repurchase it ?

No!!!!! there are much more night creams available in the market which are worth to try :P

  • Geru (Red ochre) 2.5%
  • Paste base Q.S

 My experience with it –

I bought this pack 2 months back. I’ve hardly used it for 2wice or thrice and came to the conclusion that its not made for me. The product is still kept in my face packs rack and I don’t think that it will finish ever. After using the pack for a couple of days I started having small breakouts all over my face. I was all shocked when I again read the ingredients. It contains wild turmeric….omg how did I left reading it when I was buying it. Turmeric does not suit my skin and results in rashes as well as ugly pimples.
It also contained some granular material which actually scratched my skin I don’t know what was it but it irritated me a lot as they were really very harsh.

So all I can say about it is that it’s the worst pack I’ve ever used in my life. People who have no sensitivity to turmeric can use it but granular thing in it may find annoying to everyone.

I even don’t want to give any ratings to the product.

My experience with it…..

The gloss comes in a creamy texture. I just stroke some of the gloss on my cheeks neck and shoulders for shimmery highlights. It may appear oily but it can’t be helped because it’s a gloss and it is supposed to put pretty glowing highlights on the body. Its really smooth. It needs to be applied with the fingers on the desired area. After blending the gloss provides a pretty pink color on the area which turns out to be of rainbow colors in different lights and from different sides. It is ideal for night parties. Provides a sparkling glow to the skin. I really like the smell others may find it tempting too ;)
