SKIN SAVIOR: LUSH TEA TREE TONER


Hi lovelies! I don't know about you guys but the sudden changes in weather this year are playing havoc with my skin and it drives me absolutely insane. Generally, my skin is fairly normal/ combination with slightly oiliness in the t-zone, which seems to be fading as I get older, so even though I get the odd spot every now and again, I'm not used to my skin playing up. So, when my skin started getting sensitive and reacting to every product I used and I started to get tiny little spots and dry/ red patches, I didn't think Tea Tree would be the answer, as I'd always written it off as a product to dry up big angry spots or oily skin and definitely not something for sensitive skin, but I was so wrong!

I'd been using this toner in the Summer and it was perfect for controlling oil and getting rid of any spots, but as my skin has been sensitive and dry, I totally forgot about the new bottle of it in my bathroom until a couple of weeks ago. After taking my makeup off and cleansing my face as usual, I decided to use this in place of the basic high street cleanser I'd been using (purely based on the fact I'd left the other one in my bedroom and was too sleepy to bother going to get it!!) and the next morning, all of the little dry spots (mostly around my mouth and chin, which is where I generally react to products/ weather) had either shrunk or disappeared. Initially, I didn't put it down to the toner alone and just assumed I'd had a lucky day, but since using this, my skin has cleared a lot and doesn't seem to be as sensitive any more. Impressed!

Overall, I'd totally recommend this to anyone. One thing I feel I should say is my skin isn't problem skin, it's not overly sensitive or dry and flaky, nor is it acne prone or covered in nasty spots, I just have normal, fairly clear skin than sometimes reacts to the environment! So, if you do have particularly bad skin, I would say this is still worth a go, because I do think it could make a difference, but if you have similar skin to me, I think you'll love this.

Have you tried this product? What's your winter skin savior?

pssstt! Just to let you know, all my ad packages are on sale for November! Check them out here.

  6. I have become so uneasy about Lush products as I took a bad reaction to their Sugar Scrub but I love their bath bombs. I just bought a Witch Blemish Stick and this toner sounds great too as the weather is playing havoc with my skin :(

  12. I know this sounds a bit weird but I love and have been looking for a toner which has a spray top. I just love that fresh feeling it gives when spritzed on your face. I will be trying this one out :)
