I have a very oily skin and by very I mean for my T zone, sky is the limit. Lol. I try various oil and shine controlling products but this “The Body shop’s Tea Tree mattifying lotion” is by far the best and the only product which makes my skin shine proof and keeps it oil free for as long as I stay awake and literally the next day till I wash my face. So no more greasy oil situation on my face.
I bought if from The Body Shop outlet for $9 because they had a sale going on otherwise it was of $15. A little bit pricey for such a small bottle but it was worth it. The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly and it doesn’t leak from the lid as well.
The scent of this lotion is quite strong as it has a tea tree fragrance when you first put it on your face but it goes away after some seconds. The consistency of the lotion is very light weight and is transparent when applied and gives a cool sensation on application, your skin feels so smooth after applying it.
This product does what it claims, reduces oil and prevents shine. Neither it clog the pores. This lotion really mattifies the skin for a very long time but also keep it moisturized at the same time. It controls oil and shine for a long time and can be used as a makeup base. Foundation glides on it smoothly.
It claims that it clears acne and prevents blemishes too but according to my experience it did not prevent my blemishes and I can’t say anything about acne as I have an acne free skin already. It cleared my complexion though and made my skin look fresh.
$15 would be a little pricey for me as it comes in a very small bottle of 50ml but I got lucky and got it at $9😄 but the benefits are worth every penny.
The down part for me is that it dries down my under eye area so much that it irritated me and I apply a different moisturizer on it. But over all it controls my oil and shine and keeps them at bay.
The amazing part is I applied it at around 5pm and when I woke up the next day I still did not have any oil or shine on my face. I was completely astonished by this. I totally love it.
Would I recommend it?
Yes, I would recommend it but for the eye area part which gets dry you have to put some other moisturizer. Even if you put a moisturizer over it, it won’t make your skin oily. This is the only con I found in this lotion that it dried my under eye area but it is the only product that could control my oil and shine.
