My sister is the best sister, hands down. A couple of weeks ago I came home to an awesome care package from her to cheer me up which included these tea tree goodies from Superdrug. I'm a sucker for trying any new skin care products, so I was excited to get going with these.
I'll start with the tea tree spot stick. Usually I don't get very many spots, but two weeks of being away without my face wash (boo) meant I had a bit of a break out period. I really like the style of the stick: it looks and feels quite like a lip gloss stick. making it really easy to apply precise amounts onto my spots. However, the results were a bit touch and go. It made larger spots feel less painful, but didn't help to clear them any quicker, which I was quite disappointed about. But, I found that it made smaller whiteheads dry up much more quickly.
The deep pore cleansing strips had a much quicker, more noticeable effect. I have really large pores, and my nose is the worst zone for it; they always seem to have dirt in as well. These strips are so easy to put on, use and take off. All you need is a quick splash of water on your nose and 12 minutes to let it work its magic. You can really see the results when you peel it off. My pores look clean, and you can totally see what the strip has sucked out from your pores on the strip itself. Grim, but fascinating. I find that it's best to leave your skin to air for the rest of the day after using this, as it does open up your pores a little, and (ironically) can allow more oil and dirt to get in if you start piling on the products.
Have you used any tea tree products? What would you recommend?
