The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser | Review

The Bodyshop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser
  Over the last few weeks I have been trialling a few products(which you can see on this post here) including this, the Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser. As someone with acne prone/oily skin I am instantly attracted to the body shops tea tree range. I have tried a number of products from their range including their foaming cleanser, face mask, toner and more which I was hugely impressed with so it felt right that I tried this out too.

The packaging is just a basic green squeezy tube that contains 30ml of product. I find that the squeezy tube packaging works great for me as I can squeeze out as much product as I like without wasting any.

The scent is of course Tea Tree, it's not a muted smell but not intense either. Once applied after a few minutes you can't really sense the smell. I have used the tea tree pore minimiser as a primer and on a few occasions when I applied this I found that the product had developed into an almost weird texture and it started peeling off, it was soo strange. I have to say I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with it, sometimes it just works for me and sometimes it doesn't do the job it claims to do.

On the positive side, when it works for me it primes and mattifies the skin leaving my face shine-free and my foundation lasting longer throughout the whole day which I love. I also find that it leaves my face feeling fresh and energized and feels so soft and supple. It doesn't do anything at all for my pores. I don't have like reallly big pores, I find they look fairly normal sized but I haven't noticed any of my pores minimising when I've used this unfortunately.

On the whole, I'm not entirely sure about how I feel about this product. It doesn't do anything for my problematic skin and sometimes the texture isn't the best. Maybe it's my skin, I don't know. I have to admit I am a little disappointed about the tea tree pore minimiser as I love the rest of the tea tree products I've tried by the body shop.

I personally wouldn't purchase this again as I find the texture isn't the best for just 30ml of product at the price of £9. If you'd like to try it out yourself and purchase it you can get it online here.
