I always love trying out new skincare and although the majority of this range isn’t new to me and to the market but there are a few new products that have been added to the range. The range in question is the Tea Tree & Witch Hazel from Boots, with some of the products having added Active Charcoal too. I’ve been giving these a go over the past week or so as my skin’s been feeling quite oily. My skin can never make it’s mind up in the winter, it’s dry one minute and super oily the next so it needs a bit of balancing out.
First up for the taking is the Tea Tree & Witch Hazel with Active Charcoal Facial Scrub, this is quite a harsh scrub, it’s very grainy, I normally like a softer scrub, I feel like this is a bit much for my skin but I think it’s a great one for my back and shoulders after a sweaty gym session so I’ll be saving it for this! A product that’s a lot more to my liking is the Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Foaming Facial Wash, it’s so fresh, light and gentle so it’s my favourite thing from the range. I like using this in the morning to wake me up! Plus, I don’t feel like it works very well with my Magnitone to cleanse my skin properly at the end of the day as it’s quite thin.
Next up, the 2-Step Nose Pore Strips! Blackhead-removing strips are super old school, I remember these being one of the first skincare products I ever tried. I wouldn’t say that these are the stars of the show from this range because I still had a large amount of blackheads that I’d rather not still have left when I peeled this bad boy off. Maybe I just have really hardy blackheads that need a little more than a nose pore strip to tempt them out. Also, the process is quite long with these, as it’s two step, you leave the first strip on for 15 minutes and then it recommends leaving the second one on for 20 minutes to moisturise. 35 minutes is quite a long time for a skincare regime to take and this isn’t including removing your makeup before and cleansing etc. These are a definite lazy-Sunday skincare treat. I’ll continue to use them to see if results improve and I’m going to try and steam my face before hand to really coax the nasty buggers out. I’ll report back!
Finally, the Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Spot Wand is a little life-saver and is really gentle as well as being effective on pesky spots. A lot of spot treatments are really drying but this one isn’t at all which I really like. Have you used any of the Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel range?
