Toners are an essential part of our skincare routine, many of us tend to underestimate the benefits of toners. Toners have a lot of benefits such as restoring the pH balance of our skin, refreshes the skin, acts as a protective layer and also makes the pores on our skin appear smaller, these are just a few benefits one can derive by using a toner on daily basis. So I’m going to be reviewing the tea tree toner from the body shop which I had bought on an impulse.
Price: Rs 795/- for 250ml

My Take On “The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Mattifying Toner :
The toner comes in a dark green transparent bottle with a black flip-top lid. The cap does not open while travelling, but since it has a liquid inside, you may want to be extra careful while travelling and pack it properly to avoid any spilling, just in case.
TBS toner consists of cornstarch, which settles at the bottom of the bottle forming a white layer. Otherwise, the toner is a light green coloured clear liquid. Upon shaking the bottle both the cornstarch and the liquid mix which results in a light green cloudy liquid. While it is dispensed in a cotton pad it comes out as a light green clear liquid
The toner has a strong scent of tea tree but it fades away in a matter of 1-2 minutes on application. But you may find the scent to be too strong while applying for the first time.
How it works :
My skin type is combination – oily and hence my T-Zone tends to get extremely oily at times. So I’ve seen after reading a lot of rave reviews about the toner I decided that it was time to get my hands on it and try it by myself. Previously I was using the Clinique Clarifying Lotion 3, for quite sometime I was pretty happy with it but then, later on, it started to dry out my skin too much.
For the first few applications i felt a mild tingling sensation which stays for about 3-4 seconds. But in 3-4 days my skin possibly adjusted to the change and hence this shouldn’t pose any threat to your skin.I noticed that my nose was smoother than usual for a while but I have not noticed any other drastic improvement in my skin conditions but it does help in reducing the size of minor pores.
I usually do not break out a lot but I’ve used this toner as spot treatment for acne that occasionally shows up on my face. I usually take a Q-Tip and dip it in the toner and place it on the pimple, this helps in reducing redness and quick healing of the pimple.
You only require very little product so the toner will last you a long time and applying a light moisturizer is must even if you have oily skin after using this toner. And it also does pick up tresses of make-up left on my skin even after removing make-up and washing my face.
