Taking on The Body Shop’s Bloggers’ Challenge
August is the month of flags, fireworks and… challenges!
Yup. I bravely accepted The Body Shop’s 3-Day Clear Skin Challenge and this post documents the trials and tribulations of my beauty evolution.
Wonder if I beat the challenge? Click to find out! The Body Shop calls them the Tea Tree Super Power Trio and these beauty warriors were sent to my abode for the 3-day clear skin challenge.
Tea Tree Cool & Creamy Wash (SGD20.90)
The new Tea Tree Cool and Creamy Wash is a deep-cleansing daily wash which leaves skin super-clean, fresh and velvety soft.
For anyone concerned about blemishes, cleansing is the most important stage of a skincare regime, yet many of us find traditional face washes drying and demand something that is effective yet gentle on their skin.
The Body Shop Tea Tree Cool and Creamy Wash is tough on blemish-causing bacteria and soft on skin. Working to intensely cleanse and purify, it instantly removes all impurities and excess oils, without over-drying. From the very first use, skin looks clearer and fresher and feels softer. Prevent further outbreaks with regular use.
My verdict: As the name suggests, the texture is extremely creamy and soft.
The menthol in the facial wash creates a cold sensation which leaves the skin visibly bright and refreshed after washing. It is mild on the skin and harsh on the acne-causing bacteria. My skin hardly feels tight or dry after washing and excess sebum and impurities were also successfully eradicated after the second use. 4 Honeyz crowns for adhering to its promises!
Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub (SGD24.90)
The Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub effortlessly removes accumulated dirt and impurities of the day. Suspended within The Body Shop’s vibrant cooling gel, specially selected exfoliants gently uproot impurities whilst caring bursting beads release their skin loving goodness.
My verdict: I’ve always chosen my scrubs very carefully as harsh exfoliators may cause redness and wrinkles. Before I embarked on my ‘Squeaky Clean’ journey, I squirted a small blop as shown below to feel the composition of the gel and beads.
I never liked scrubs that use rough and irregularly-shaped beads as they produce a gritty and abrasive feeling on the skin. Thankfully, the Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub uses round and smooth granules that felt gentle yet effective. I was also glad that it does not contain glycol which may loosen the bonds of my lash extension glue. For its skin-polishing efficacy and minty fragrance, 3.5 Honeyz crowns!
The Tea Tree Oil can be used directly on the skin or during facial steaming.
My verdict: Even though the product is in oil form, the skin did not feel greasy for long after application. The oil was absorbed almost immediately by the skin leaving only a chilly sensation by the menthol. The zesty blend of tea tree and lemon oils also emitted a soothing fragrance that stimulated the senses, producing a relaxing effect.
My angry-looking zits also looked calmer after the first use. They cleared up by the third day. 🙂
4.5 Honeyz crowns for its affordability and effectiveness.

I thought my skin looked happier and more radiant!
More reasons why we should support The Body Shop’s Tea Tree range…
The Body Shop encourages sustainable and organic farming practices by sourcing their tea tree oil from the Kenya Organic Oil Farmers Association in Mount Kenya National Park. This preserves the park’s natural biodiversity while producing Community Fair Trade organic tea tree oil for The Body Shop products.
So fight acne woes with The Body Shop’s Tea Tree range too!
