But life was so crazy, I just ignored myself. Then one day as I went to The Body Shop store to get some stuff I noticed a beauty and got it. I am talking about the body shop tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution. Please keep reading to know what, why, how and whatever questions you have in your mind about this product.

The body shop tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution review

thebeautymascot/the body shop tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution

The tea tree range has been my favorite range when it comes to The body shop. Such a wonderful range of products especially suited for oily/combination skin. The Anti-imperfection daily solution also is from the tea tree range.The Anti-imperfection daily solution comes in a green colored glass bottle with a dropper dispenser cap, which is black. Dropper is perfect as you can adjust the amount of product getting dispensed. You just need 2-3 drops of the product. The packaging is quite handy but is made of glass, so you might not prefer it while travelling.

The Anti-imperfection daily solution is a clear watery solution. This is not a moisturizer, this is more like a serum. This glides on smoothly on the face and absorbs into your skin as soon as it is applied. Not oily or greasy at all.

The daily solution has tea tree oil as one of its main ingredient so has a very fresh fragrance of tea tree oil. Not very overpowering fragrance and fades away really quick.

I use this two times, morning and evening.Just take 2-3 drops on my fingers and tap this on my face. It feels very soothing and fresh when applied on the skin. The anti-imperfection daily solution has so much improved how my skin felt. It mattifies the skin, makes pores less visible, reduces acne marks and makes skin appear smoother and fresher.  This claims to get rid of blemishes, well it does not prevent any breakouts or anything but yes helps is reducing them and also helps in overall repairing of the skin. As i have mentioned earlier my skin was in such a bad condition and this product has helped me in improving my skin.

Let’s talk about moisturizing. The SA said you can skip moisturizer when using this. But I disagree. This gives some amount of moisturization but not enough for my combination skin. So you definitely have to moisturize after using this. And if you have dry skin , then you definitely definitely must moisturize. The brand itself claim this to be a pre-serum, but since I don’t wish to add that one more step, I use it as a serum.

But I seriously don’t mind that. It also helps in lightening dark spots on regular use. I have been using this for the past 4-5 months. But you don’t have to use it for such a long time to see results. Definitely shows results in about a month. TBS claims it to show results within 4 weeks. You need only a few drops of the product so this is going to last long. Even after using for 4-5 months, the bottle isn’t empty yet.

Overall 

In love with:

  • The liquid glides on smoothly on the face.
  • Not oily or sticky and absorbs really fast into the skin.
  • Can be used both during summer and winter.
  • Fresh fragrance.
  • Mattifies the skin.
  • Reduces acne and helps in fading acne marks.
  • Visibly reduces redness and fastens process of healing.
  • Pores become less visible.
  • Improves the skin texture.

Not in love with:

  • Some might not like the smell.
  • Some might find it expensive, but for the quality its worth. It’s also going to last for a long time.

Final verdict

I’m really impressed how clearer and smoother my skin felt after using this. Does not prevent acne, but helps in reducing it and also clearing the acne marks. The Body shop tea tree anti-imperfection daily solution has definitely improved how my skin looked and felt. For that reason I am really happy with this. I am not going to repurchase this as I have some other products lined up to try but I highly recommend you give it a try especially if you have oily/combination skin. I give it 4.8/5
