The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub

Another thing I learned is that, your facial wash is not enough to clean your face. You still have to use another product to fully cleanse your face. And for that, I honestly recommend you The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub. It is a facial scrub used to exfoliate your face.

All kind of facial scrub is better to use two times a week. Usually it has tiny stones or product used to exfoliate your skin so it is better not to use it daily to prevent it from damaging your skin. 

For a short story, I remember when I already consumed all my facial wash and I was not able to buy a new one that time, I tried using The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub daily. Yes, I tried it daily and thankfully because of its ingredients, it did not damage my skin. I just had to do that less than a week because of course, any exfoliating product or facial scrub is better to use two times a week.

It is a facial scrub product used to exfoliate and remove the dead cells in your face. You may see that they are claiming that it is a daily facial exfoliator and as what I experienced and told above, it will not damage your skin but still, better just use it two times a week to prevent any problem.

My Skin Care Routine

I was too young when I started to love makeups. I still do remember buying a cheap lip gloss in the shop in front of our school. And how many times I asked my big sister to buy my first eye shadow pallet.

I was in fourth grade when we found a cosmetic shop, HBC to be exact, that sells makeups for younger age. I had my first eyeshadow pallet that had three colors in it: blue, pink and violet. I felt so professional every time I use it. 

Time flies so fast, and little did I know, I was slowly destroying my face. It was only 2017 when I decided to invest in skin care products. I was so surprised knowing the price for each product but I am still thankful that I learned how important they are. 

Many will ask why beauty gurus have that perfect skin, and yes, that is because they invest in their skin care. It is important to remove all kind of products in our face, keep it hydrated and bacteria free. So now, I will show you the product I use for my skin care routine. 

My Skin Care Routine

SparkElle Pretty in Pink Soap
I love washing my face with this soap. It leaves my face so soft and it promises an acne free face that I dreamt of. I use this three times a day: during morning when I wake up, when I take a bath and lastly before I sleep. 

You can read in My Everyday Makeup Routine that I do not usually put heavy make ups. So by this soap, it really cleanses my face without worrying that some make up products or dirt are still on my face.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub
Facial scrub are indeed important but take note that you cannot use it everyday. I usually use The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub only two times a week. Specially when I feel bumps on my face. But thankfully, thanks to SparkElle Pretty in Pink Soap, it lessen the possibility to have bumps but I still use The Body Shop Tea Tree Squeaky Clean Scrub two times a week to keep my face smooth and soft.

It is a good facial scrub because it does not dry out my face and it keeps my face soft.

The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream
Even we use products that make our skin so soft and smooth, it is a must to use a moisturising cream to keep and face hydrated. And The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream is perfect for that. I use this product every time I finish washing my face to keep it smooth. 

You can read that it is a day cream but do not worry, you can use it as well during night to keep your face moisturised and hydrated and it will save you a lot of money.

Vaseline Lip Therapy
I love using  Vaseline Lip Therapy after washing my face so whenever a lip product left on my lips, Vaseline Lip Therapy is able to remove it for me and leave my lips so smooth again. No more dry and cracked lips!

It is a relief to remove and feel fresh again after a long day with makeup. Let us not forget how important our face is and how important we take care of it. 

Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream

As I said to my previous blog, Why You Should Start Moisturizing, ¨the key for a perfect make up is a perfect skin¨. And to achieve a baby soft perfect skin is a combination of various skin care products. 

Being a human, I really advice people to have a skin care routine. It is not only for women but also for men. Not only for those who wear make up, but for everyone. We should take care of our face as it is what we show first when we interact with other people.

What I like about The Body Shop is they have a variety of skin care products, make ups, etc., for all type of skin. And they are all cruelty free and made of natural ingredients. So you do not have to worry for they have the answer for all your worries. 

One of their product that I really love is The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream that is good for sensitive skin like me. People may keep on trying different products but just others, what is good for their skin may not be good for me and vice versa. So I really choose wise on products that I would be trying. Thankfully The Body Shop offers something that is really good for sensitive skin. 

                     Aloe Soothing Day Cream

Living in a country that has 4 sessions is really hard. You need to adjust your skin care products every season for it may not be good for all these seasons. And winter is indeed my enemy. My face gets really dry that I cannot help and it always causes pimples on it. But thanks to Aloe Soothing Day Cream, I do not have to worry anymore for it moisturizes my face at its best. 


¨Formulated for sensitive skin¨

As I said before, I have a sensitive skin that whenever I try some products, even if it is for anti acne, I keep getting pimples. But by this product, I never had an issue.

18€ / 50 ml

Seeing the price, I can say it is indeed expensive. And maybe you would ask me why I am still using it. I have a very sensitive skin, and it has been years since I got an acne problem. So because of those issues, I won´t mind spending a little bit for my face if it helps me from my issues. 

If you do not have a sensitive skin or acne problem, you can try other moisturizing cream that are more cheaper than this. But I am telling you, you should be aware of cheap products for it may distroy your face.

How To Use It

1.Wash your face, put everything you need such as toner. 
2.Get you The Body Shop Aloe Soothing Day Cream and apply it directly to your face
3.Let it dry
4.After it dries, you can now put your make up
In the product itself says that it is a day cream, but if you want to save money, you can also use it as a night cream. 

What I Like

I really like how it moisturizes my skin at its best. And I can also use it as my night cream without spending too much.

What I Dislike

Of course, its price. It is really expensive for me . But I know, the price is worthy.

Is It Worthy?  

It is really worthy specially if you have a sensitive skin and acne problem. But if you don´t, you can try other cheaper moisturizing cream.

You are altogether beautiful, my love; there is no flaw in you

The Body Shop´s Tea Tree Oil

One of the big problem of some girls are acne. So most of us, keep on trying different products hoping to have a better skin condition. But some of us are making mistakes on choosing the products that we are going to use. Let us not forget that every product has different type of ingredients and that´s what we should be aware of.

It has been years since Tea Tree Oil of The Body Shop started to be on trend. There were a lot of reviews regarding this product. But one thing that I like when I first searched it on the internet, that those are its ingredients. Tea tree oil are made of organic products. So there is no reason to be aftraid to us it.

Based on The Body Shop´s website, Tea Tree Oil is consisted of Aqua (Solvent/Diluent), Alcohol Denat. (Solvent/Diluent), PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil (Emulsifier), Polysorbate 20 (Emulsifier), Melaleuca Alternifolia Leaf Oil (Natural Additive), Limonene (Natural Additive), t-Butyl Alcohol (Denaturant), Calophyllum Inophyllum Seed Oil (Skin Conditioning Agent), Citral (Natural Additive), Leptospermum Petersonii Oil (Natural Additive), Denatonium Benzoate (Denaturant), Tocopherol (Antioxidant).

  • 9,00€ / 10 ml
  • 13€ / 20 ml

You might think that it is expensive for its size but do not worry, you can use a bottle of 20ml of tea tree oil for more than 2 months depend on how many times you are going to use it every day.

How to apply

You can use the tea tree oil directly to your face. Just do not forget to wash your hands first. Put a 1 drop on your finger or back of your hand then put the oil where you have acne.

You can use it every morning and evening but if you are sensitive of its strange smell, you can just use it every evening when you are not going out.


If you have pimple, you can use it overnight, it will dry very soon. I can say that the maximum effectiveness is three days.


What I noticed, it is not recommendable for dry skin because tea tree oil has the ability to make your skin dryer that provokes pimple to come out. And even if it removed your pimple, it will not prevent other pimples to come out so it is really recommendable to have a seperate facial wash and scrub aside from just using tea tree oil for your pimples.

I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Marvelous are Your works, and I know this very well.
