Where I got it: I got this from my local The Body Shop. It was RRP$39.95 and I had a $10 discount voucher so it came down to $29.95. I have previously used their Tea Tree Oil range before but this is the first time I’ve heard or seen their overnight mask!
What I got: This is a 75ml tub of The Body Shop Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask. Wake up to clearer-looking skin! Our fresh and breathable Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask is specifically formulated to care for oily skin and imperfections while you sleep. Infused with salicylic acid and Community Trade tea tree oil, this 100% vegan leave-on mask for oily skin will reduce the size and number of imperfections and achieve clearer, smoother, and healthier-looking skin.
How I find it: After cleansing and toning at night, I would apply a serum and skip moisturiser. I usually like to multi-mask even with sleeping masks. I use this tea tree one where I am prone to breakouts, so my chin and jaw area. Then a hydrating sleeping mask for the rest of my face. The consistency and texture of this sleeping mask is really interesting. In the tub, it looks like gel, but you touch it with your finegertips it will leave fingerprints but you will hardly pick up any product. You dig in with a bit of pressure you can make a dent but the product still won’t stick to your fingers. To take the product out, you need to use a spatula and scoop it out. It looks like jelly and gets a little runny when in contact with warmth.
Overall: The texture of this mask certainly feels really good to use and vey pleasant for even oily skin to use. It’s refreshing and gel-like texture dries down but leaves a slightly sticky feel on the skin. It’s not a greasy sticky, but like a film sort of sticky. If you apply a thin layer, it won’t be sticky to the point where it sticks to your pillow, but if you apply a thicker layer it will take a bit time to dry. In terms of helping with imperfections and breakouts, I didn’t see a big difference to be honest. If you love Tea Tree and if it helps with breakouts for you then it should be a good mask to use if you are time-poor. The Body Shop has a good Tea Tree Oil clay mask that I think that works much better. It hydrates the skin though in a non-oily, non-heavy way so that’s a good benefit for breakout-prone skin types I guess. I will continue to use it but I don’t think I’ll purchase again. I’ll stick with my BHAs.
