TONE OR NOT TO TONE.....THATS THE QUESTION

Pin It
Some say oily skin is a blessing as it slows down the ageing process......but moi..........doesn't think so at all!!!!!!!! You have to have super oily skin that doesn't behave at all to understand my woe.Cleansing, Toning and Moisturising has become a daily routine for me and i try my level best to keep my oilies at bay.

Due to the extra oily skin that i have toning is a must for me and toners.......hell ya......i go through those bottles like crazy. Today i will be reviewing Body shop "TEA TREE TONER". Everyone knows that tea tree oil has amazing benefits for oily skin and i have in the past tried their tea tree face wash(did not do anything great for me)....but the product junkie that i am....the next time i visited the shop i got my hands on that fat bottle of toner



























Its touted as a skin clearing toner and is for oily and blemish prone skin. I don't have many blemishes.....but i do have the oilies.....

A very pungent (tea tree oil smell) smell comes out of it when i dispense it out to a cotton pad. It stings a bit when i apply it on to my face but its not unbearable. It takes out any remaining dirt present on ur face and you can actually see it on the cotton pad. Don't forget to shake the bottle before use 'coz it has a tendency to form sediments at the bottom. C the pic below. Look at the marked area























Pros:-

Doesn't dry my skin out excessively

Big bottle....will last for a long time

I have not had any reaction to it

Cons:-

Hate the smell

Well.......it didn't live up to my expectation of keeping the oilies at bay

Not mattifying enough

overall ......i will just use up the existing bottle but am not going to repurchase it

Have u tried this toner???? love stuff with tea tree in it???????. do comment
