LUSH Tea Tree Water



Back in January (feels like yolks ago) I purchased this little toner in the Lush January sales, six months later and Im barely half way through but today I thought I'd write up a little review to share my thoughts.

Last month I raved about my Liz Earle Skin Tonic I'll go straight in and say I do prefer Liz Earle over this one as it's more cooling, hydrating and just generally works better for me. However when thing's are spotty and I get that once a month breakout I reach for this tea tree toner. Most people know about tea tree's healing properties so I won't harp on about that, but I will say I often find tea tree products a little harsh on my sensitive skin (spotty and sensitive skin what a combo) after trying and disliking The Body Shop Tea Tree toner which is pretty heavily fragranced (it almost seems like artificial fragrance) I haven't really tried or reached for tea tree products since. 

This toner manages to soothe irritated skin. It leaves the skin feeling squeaky clean but it's also super gentle on sensitive skin types like mine. I won't say this rids spots, but it certainly helps kill off bacteria and long term use I can imagine this helps prevent breakouts. After reading an article somewhere that said tea tree should only be used as a short term measure I only use this when my skin is spotty. For me this does speed up the healing process, it hydrates and just leaves my skin feeling refreshed. For those that prefer a facial spray toner in appose to a cotton pad I wouldn't recommend as it doesn't have a mist texture, this sprays product onto one area of the face…

This toner also works really well on those pesky under the skin spots, used along my nose I also think this has helped with congested skin and blackheads. This does a fantastic job of balancing out my combination skin too, this lifts oil but doesn't leave my skin dry.

So do you need this? Well no. It is a nice addition to have in your skin care line up for those spotty moments as like I say it's soothing. I think this toner will be perfect in the summer time when my skins a little more on the oily side. I guess I'm just so in love with my Liz Earle Skin Tonic I no longer feel the need to use other toners.  

Have you tried the Lush Tea Tree toner? Are you a fan of Tea Tree?

I find lush toners a lil hit and miss, I've tried this toner in the past it was ok, but like u stated I've found if I use tea tree as an ingredient a lot it does irritate my skin. Lovely review though :-) xx

This toner is something that I have being incorporating into my skincare routine for the last week or so and I have to say I think it's working really well so far; I like it a lot!

Thanks for the comment, I agree others I've tried in the past literally just feel like water! Yeah I don't think I'd repurchase, yeah I'm the same I'm not sure why I know lots of people can use tea tree in their everyday skincare but it seems to upset mine after awhile xx
