The Body Shop's Tea Tree Blackhead Exfoliating Wash - Review ...

A few years ago, I fell in love with an exfoliating facial wash by H2O, and then, tragically for my complexion, they stopped making it. H2O offers a replacement scrub, but I didn’t like it. So I tried product after product, trying to find a new exfoliating scrub that I could love, and two weeks ago, it happened. I found one, tried it, and fell madly in love. It’s The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Blackhead Exfoliating Wash, and I’m going to use it forever! Hooray!

Price: $13.00 at

Pros: Exfoliates perfectly well, leaves skin tingly and feeling fresh, perfect for oily and acne-prone or dry skin

Cons: Only available in stores or at The Body Shop website, so it may not be convenient to purchase

The first scrub I tried was O2CH Face Exfoliator Gentle Scrub. I have acne-prone but delicate skin, and I thought the “gentle” in the name would make it a safe bet. I loved the way it smelled, but it was TOO gentle. It didn’t exfoliate enough!

Next I tried Burt's Bees Pore Refining Scrub (with willowbark and jojoba beads). It smelled a little strange, sort of medicinal, but it was HORRIBLE. It left my skin feeling like it was coated in a greasy film, and naturally, I had a terrible break-out. I thought that was odd, since it’s labeled as an acne treatment solution. Oh well, never mind, on to the next exfoliant!

I was already at the mall to buy a MAC eye-shadow (I’m hopelessly addicted), so I stopped in at The Body Shop. I told the perky sales assistant what I was looking for and she grinned, nodded her head, and handed be a test vial of the Tea Tree Blackhead Exfoliating Wash. “Try this,” she said, “it’s the one I use, we all use it here, and you’ll love it.”

She was right! It’s perfect. It smells good, exfoliates well, and leaves my skin with a slight tingle, feeling fresh and clean and glowing. I still follow-up with my everyday moisturizer, since Michigan winters are pretty harsh, but I know in the summer I’ll just be able to use this scrub and go! Honestly, I like this scrub even more than my old H2O scrub. I love it! They have an entire line of blemish-busting tea tree oil products, so if you love this scrub as much as I do, you may want to try those, too!

Where Thoughts and Opinions Converge

During a trip overseas in London (I love London) and I was running out of my regular face wash... I stopped into this lovely salon, and they recommended the Shielo Anti-Aging Complexion Scrub. I picked up at the store, and I ordered one online from Shielo's website. I love this stuff. After just a few days of using it I noticed my skin became so clean and it not only eliminated all my blackheads (and I do mean all) a my skin also began to exude a youthful glow that I hadn't seen since I was a kid. The only con to my experience would have to be that after a couple weeks my skin dried up a little, but a few days of giving this scrub a break and I was back to using it not to mention I have not had one pimple since using this regularly!

I really love the Tee Tree Blackhead Exfolliator Wash. I am going to use it forever. I have finally found something for my face that will stop pimples and blackheads from coming and it is not that expensive.

:) I love the Body Shop! Everything they makes smells really good too!

This looks OK but I know is a new collection at The Body Shop now, SPA Wisdom of Japan with really great products and scrubs :)

so is it good if you have blackheads or no?

Very Interesting Product!! I love using Body Shop! :)
