If using moisturizers in the summers makes your skin oily sticky and too much oily like mine, then you can relax now.

I’ve hit the gold. I’ve tried a lot of moisturizers till now, but none of them worked perfectly like this to keep my skin totally oil-free and mattified even in the highest peak of the summer time.


The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Mattifying Lotion works wonders on my skin. The tea tree oil infused in the lotion makes it a very good product for acne prone skin.

It’s a light, non-oily moisturizing lotion to use after you’ve washed and toned your skin. You’ll get better results if you apply the Tea Tree Serum before applying this moisturizer.

The moisturizer is easily absorbed, has shine control properties, has anti-bacterial properties, and clinically proven to clear off the skin blemishes.


Rs. 1095 for 50 ml

Skin Type Suited For: Oily to combination Skin

Skin Concern: Blemishes and shine-control

Age Suited For: 15 to 40 years.

My experience with the product

I have oily skin, sometimes prone to acne but my problem was not being able to use moisturizers in summers during the daytime, as my skin tends to get too oily.

I’ve been using this for the past 2 months, and from Day 1, I noticed tremendous difference in my skin texture and complexion.

This lotion hydrates and moisturizes my skin and controls the oil at the same time. Even if I apply the moisturizer a little much than usual, I cannot feel any stickiness in my face.

Now I cannot comment on how many hours it can leave my face oil-free or shine-free, because it depends of the particular day’s temperature and humidity. The higher is the temperature and humidity, the lesser time it can keep you oil-free.

However, on an average day with 34-degree temperature and 80% humidity, it can keep you oil-free for about 4 hours, provided you are not directly under the sun.

The lotion gives a totally matte finish and shine-free look I intend to get for the summers.

It’s a little different during the winters. Of course, with season change, you have to change your skin care routine and products.

While this Tea Tree Lotion from The Body Shop works perfectly fine for summers, you have to apply a good sunscreen before stepping out into the sun, as it has no SPF in it.

The pimples that were starting to pop out at the beginning of the season have now all subsided.

My skin’s complexion has become clearer, brighter and more radiant. The blemishes have all faded away. I’m more even-toned now.

The Body Shop Tea Tree Skin Clearing Lotion is by far the best anit-blemish and oil and shone control day cream I’ve used so far. Don’t expect miracles to happen overnight but with regular use, you will notice a difference within a montj.

I’ll be buying this lotion again for the next summer and also highly (really highly) recommend.
