Tea-tree face washes

So, although I decided to veer a little a bit away from the fashion/beauty blog thing, basically because I don't know enough about it, but I will still be posting that sort of thing for sure. Today for starters, because I've been planning to write a post about my weekend since about Saturday and still haven't, so I feel bad for having no posts. So here is one!

Thought I might take a look at my day to day face products. They are... (please ignore shocking picture quality - the lighting in my room decided to get weird on me and I'm not enough of a camera genius to combat it)

Superdrug's own brand tea tree and peppermint facial wash and scrub :) I was attracted to them firstly because Superdrug had an offer on their own brand products, and I am an advertisers dream, alas. But also, I think tea tree/mint is a really refreshing smell and it really wakes me up in the morning, so for a girl who enjoys her morning shower these were really good. Also, my conditioner is tea tree and I thought it would match, but that's just my weirdness. They actually smell really good, tangy and refreshing, which is great, but I've also found that they work! I use the face wash first, and then a tiny amount of the scrub, and I've found that my poor party-abused skin has started to recover a little.

You get 150ml of 'Foaming Facial Wash' for £1.49. It lathers up really well, and once I've got it on my face it feels slightly warm, but not uncomfortable. I was worried the first time I used it, because I have fairly sensitive skin, and if something like this feels warm, I occasionally end up with a bright red face :/ Luckily, I didn't, and the warmth just seems to be it doing its thing. I really like it now, it's as though I can feel it working.

The scrub, as you can tell, is smaller, and you only get 75ml for the same price of £1.49, however, you do only use a tiny amount each time really. I've always used facial scrub type things before, so it's nice to follow up the wash with something more familiar to me - I always think that when you can feel the little beads it at least feels like you're doing some good! The granules in this are great, not too scratchy, and it leaves my skin feeling very soft and exfoliated.

Overall, for two things I picked up simply because I needed some face wash, I love these, and I will almost certainly be repurchasing them when I run out! :)


  1. It can be hard to find you niche but sometimes you just have to say "forget it... I cannot be defined and neither can my blog"! Thats what I did! My blog is a random one about a random girl writing her own story! No literally... that's what my bloglovin says. Just do what you love and others will love what you do! Good luck sweetie!

  2. Thank you! I think I definitely have to give up on finding a particular path and just write whatever random musing is in my head. It'll be a fun journey at any rate :D Thanks for popping by! xx

  3. I love tea tree products, think they really work. And of course post about whatever you like, it's good to have a mish mash of things otherwise you'll feel like you can only post and certain things :) xx
