One of the greatest sad truths of life is as such – there’s no escaping pimples; even when you’re well into your 30s and believe you’ve finally got things under control with a proper, killer (expensive) skincare routine. In fact, sudden pop-ups are the worst – giant face volcanoes that only stand out even more against the rest of your perfect canvas-like skin. It’s like getting punched in the face; except this red mark stays.

Enter The Body Shop’s Tea Tree oil-infused skincare range. We’ve been loving this for some time now specifically for treating blemishes, so the newest Blemish Battling Superhero Squad is a welcome addition. Made with 100% organic tea tree oil, the three products were formulated to help battle blemishes before they even appear – to literally get under the skin and work its au naturel magic.

From the squad, there’s the Daily Skin Avenger – or the new and improved Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution, a lightweight, fast-absorbing serum made for all-over-face application. Then there’s the all-new 3-in-1 Wash.Scrub.Mask (which goes by the undercover name of Kickass Cleanser), a multi-tasking cleanser with foaming kaolin clay, volcanic minerals, and the same Community Trade Tea Tree Oil that specifically tackles clogged pores, blackheads, and shine. It works as an all-in-one purifying daily cleanser, a scrub to clear and tighten the skin’s appearance, and a mask to deep cleanse and mattify – incredibly handy to have at your sink, we think. And bringing up the rear is the cult classic bottled Tea Tree Oil itself, which works best for on-the-spot spot treatment in the event of a sneak attack – just apply directly onto your blemish and you’re good to go.


The Body Shop Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Daily Solution 50ml, $29.90, 3-in-1 Wash.Scrub.Mask 125ml, $29.90, Tea Tree Oil, $19.90 to $34.90, available at all The Body Shop stores from 28 July 2016.
