I love this product. I don't have awful skin but it is quite oily and is prone to getting breakouts every now and then. I started using it about 6 months ago and since using it I have noticed that I get a lot less break outs and spots are much smaller.
It feels very refreshing to use and leaves the skin feeling tingly and clean, like you can feel it working as soon as it goes on. It comes out as a gel and a little goes a long way so although the tube isn't huge it lasts me quite a long time. Also the product isn't expensive and Boots often run 3 for 2 deals on this range.
I have also started to use the tea tree and witch hazel morning moisturiser and together the two products work extremely well. However I have noticed that they make my skin quite dry so I top up with Simple moisturiser as well which works well.
I have some really visible pores on my nose but don't suffer from spots too much. I thought this might be worth a go as it was only three quid. My wife does have spots and so I figured if it wasn't useful to me she might like it.
That night I put the gel on as instructed and was looking forwards to seeing the results in the morning. I wasn't expecting it to solve the problem overnight but I also wasn't expecting was to wake up with drier skin than I have had for months. I put some Diprobase on and that seemed to sort it out. I wasn't willing to take the risk of using it again.
My wife had also tried it that night and didn't have the same reaction as me so decided to keep on using it. Within a couple of days my wife's skin also became very dry so she stopped using it as well. We have ended up throwing it away. We both feel disappointed that Boots have released a product that says it is 'Lightly moisturising and caring for your skin' when in our case the opposite is true.
I do have sensitive skin but Meg doesn't so it can't be down to that. I have used products with Tea Tree and/or Witch Hazel in the past with no problems. I will still use Boots products but this is the first time I have been left feeling really let down by one of them.
After deciding to give the Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel line a try, I bought the Night Treatment Gel, long with the Day and Night Spot Wand and Cleansing & Toning Lotion on a 3 for 2 offer. All the products in this range are between 2 - ￡4, and obviously exclusive to Boots. They all also contain Tea Tree (a spot fighting ingredient) and witch hazel (a skin calming ingredient). Although great for oily, spot-prone skin, in my experience I would say these products are even gentle enough for slightly sensitive skin.
The Night Treatment Gel comes in a clear plastic tube, so you can easily see how much product you have left. The product itself is light green in colour, and has a watery-gel like consistency. Altogether you get 75ml of product, and although this doesn't sound like a lot, you only need a small amount (a little really goes a long way!). Therefore should last you quite a while. I've been using mine almost everyday for 2 months so far, and used under a quarter of the tube. The product claims to actively help fight spots while you sleep, without it feeling greasy or blocking pores, but lightly moisturising instead. The directions say to apply with clean fingers after washing, all over the face and blending it in lightly.
I use this product every night after removing my make-up and cleansing my face. Although this claims to be lightly moisturising, I still like to apply a night moisturiser on top just to be sure. The nice thing about this product is that it doesn't feel sticky, or greasy, just light and refreshing. Also it has that nice scent of tea tree that all the Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel line has. Another great thing about this is that it doesn't irritate my skin. Despite this containing alcohol and my skin being a little dry and sensitive. It just blends into the skin, and is used like a standard night moisturiser, except it has the added benefit of preventing spots.
One thing I have noticed about this is that it reminds me a lot of a handwash gel... But for the face. I'm sure they have their differences though! Anyway, the night treatment gel really does help to keep my skin spot-free. Since using I've noticed I get fewer breakouts and when I do, the spots are so small they're barely even noticeable!
For anyone with spot-prone skin, I highly recommend this!
My skin is usually quite clear and more prone to dryness than spots but due to a recent illness I
found myself with blotchy skin and a few spots. After trying several products I found that most of
them really dried my skin or made it look worse then a friend recommended the Boots Tea Tree &
Witch Hazel Night Treatment Gel.
The Tea Tree Gel comes in a clear plastic squeezy tube with a flip top lid so it's easy to dispense
and you can see how much of the gel is left. The Gel is a pale green in colour and although it isn't
runny it is quite a light consistency for a gel. The Gel contains Tea Tree which is a natural antiseptic
and Witch Hazel which helps to calm the skin. The Gel comes in a 75ml tube but it does seem to last
well as you don't need to use much for each application so a little goes a long way.
The Gel is designed to work intensively on your skin overnight and helps fight spot causing bacteria
while gently moisturising without blocking your pores. For best results the gel should be used every
night after cleansing your skin you should apply this by gently rubbing it into your skin like you would with a moisturiser. I use this after cleansing my skin before I go to bed and find the gel rubs into my
skin easily and my skin doesn't feel greasy after I apply it. My skin is quite sensitive but I haven't had any problems with stinging or allergic reations to this gel and it feels quite soothing and cooling as I apply it. I'm not a huge fan of the scent of Tea Tree oil and have hated the smell of previous Tea Tree products I've used but although you can smell the Tea Tree oil in this gel the scent isn't too strong or over powering.
There is a definite improvement in my skin after a few days of using the gel the redness of the
blotches and spots has calmed down and my skin looks a lot clearer. Unfortunately the gel isn't
moisturising enough for my skin so although it hasn't dried my skin as much as some products
I've tried my skin still feels slightly dry after using this so I've now purchased a Tea Tree moisturiser
to use in the mornings to add some moisture back into my skin after using the gel overnight.

The Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Gel is a Boots own brand product so only available from Boots and
costs £2.99 for a 75ml tube. I think that this is a good price compared to some of the skin care brands
such as Oxy especially if you watch for Boots 3 for 2 deals.
If you have read some of my reviews you will know I suffer with sensitive dry skin and spots. And the fact that I am getting spots at the age of 29 gets me down.
I try loads of products to help them disappear quicker, prevent them and treat them and after seeing some good reviews for the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel range I thought I may as well give it a try.
The gel comes in a 75 ml clear tube for £2.99 from Boots chemists. The packaging is clear and to the point. It simply states what it is and how to use it which may seem a little basic but I do like the way it's presented.
The Tea Tree and Witch Hazel night gel claims to work intensively while you sleep at fighting the bacteria that causes the spots and caring for your skin while moisturising. The first night I cleansed and toned my skin and applied the gel on my problem areas - my forehead and chin. The gel has a lovely smell and you can really pick up on the both the Tea tree and Witch Hazel. You only need a little splodge of gel as it really goes far.
As you smooth onto your skin it has a nice cooling and invigorating sensation. You are directed to blend in with your fingers just before bed. It takes some blending in, but that may be because I end up applying too much though! But it feels lovely on your skin. As for its moisturising effect I am in some doubt over this. Although when I wake up in the morning my skin feels good, after I have applied it at night and it has sunk into the skin I find my skin feeling tight. And I have to force myself to not apply moisturiser as I am sure this would not help the gels effectiveness.
I have noticed some improvement on my spots since I have been using it, which is around 3 weeks. I feel if I can continue to apply it the results may improve. My pores look better and I do get a few less spots. But the biggest difference is that the spots I do still get are nowhere near as bad so I am really pleased about this.
I've been using The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion until recently but my current bottle is coming to an imminent end and I'm reluctant to pay for another if I can get a cheaper alternative elsewhere.
Although it's marketed as being a gel, it seems thinner in consistency than what I'd expect from a gel. When I squeeze some out of the tube and raise my fingers to rub it onto my face, I often find that it starts running down my fingers because it's rather runny. It's a lot less solid than The Body Shop product that I've been previously using as that is more of a cream in comparison to this.
WHY I BOUGHT IT
As someone who gets a frustrating number of spots on a very regular basis, I was drawn by the claims that this gel works while I slept to fight the bacteria that could otherwise result in spots without blocking my pores and giving me more problems in that department. To put you fully in the picture, The Body Shop night lotion was bought predominantly because of its claims that it could make post-blemish marks look less noticeable as once my spots have eventually died down, they tend to leave marks behind that aren't quite scars, but they're not too dissimilar. This night treatment gel doesn't specifically claim to do this but seeing as I no longer wanted to pay for The Body Shop lotion, I couldn't really complain about that!
I've been using this gel for a couple of weeks now, which I feel is a long enough time period to fully review its results. I can't say that no new spots have appeared since I started using this product as they still seem to crop up on my forehead and around my chin, especially at 'that' time of the month. However, the ones that do crop up tend to be smaller than before and after I've applied some of this gel overnight, they seem to be less noticeable in the morning. This is quite impressive considering that reducing the look of new or existing spots isn't actually one of the product's claims. While my skin hasn't undergone any radical transformation in the last couple of weeks, it looks clearer than before in that spots are smaller, less obvious and to a large extent, there is less of them.
THE PRICE AND AVAILABILITY
Being a Boots brand, it's obviously only available in this store. It usually retails for around £3 but I had to quickly check this on the Boots website, where I saw that there is currently a 2 for £5 offer on the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel range in general so this is a good time to buy if you're thinking about getting some. The tube is 75ml and may not look particularly big, but I only need to use a small amount to cover my whole face. At the rate at which my current tube is being used, I can't see it running out as quickly as the Cleanser & Toner from the same range (which I find I need to use lots of to feel like my face is properly clean). Based on this, I find it to be good value for money, especially in comparison to The Body Shop night treatment gel that costs more money and isn't as big.
Do I recommend this gel based on my experiences of using it? While it doesn't quite live up to the claims on the packaging and I can't honestly say that my skin has suddenly become exceptionally clear since I started using it, I'm pleased with the effects, especially considering that it only cost £3 to buy. It's not a miracle worker, but this is true of everything I've used. I have noticed an improvement in the appearance of my skin though and for that reason, I'd be happy to buy another tube when the current one runs out.
There are few skincare ranges that I feel are effective and well-priced. The Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel range is one of them. Though the main products in this range I use are the 'Night Treatment Gel' and the cleanser/ toner, I would be confident in using other products in the range. This review focuses on the night treatment gel which helps your skin to look clear and fresh while you sleep.
My skin is prone to the occasional breakout. For this reason I try quite a few products aimed at reducing this. I first used this range years ago and it has been something I have continued to buy throughout the years.
-- Witch Hazel and Tea Tree Oil --
Tea tree oil is one of those things that we all seem to know is good for your skin but we don't know why. Well, it contains antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic and antifungal properties. For this gel, the most important part is the antibacterial component. This is what helps fight the germs on your skin to leave it looking clear and less prone to break outs. It also has a lovely fresh scent that is not too overpowering.
Witch Hazel, while not containing an impressive list of properties as above, it is beneficial to your skin. It helps calm your skin and is an ingredient used in lotion to help moisturise your skin. Witch hazel can also shrink and contract the blood vessels back to normal size.
So it is easy to see why Boots decided on these two ingredients for the range.
-- Use --
My skin is less troublesome than it used to be but I do get the occasional flare up of spots. This gel is great for keeping my skin at bay. Also, as I have quite oily skin I benefit from the light moisturising effect of the gel, and I use this as a substitute for moisturiser both morning and night. This is effective enough to keep my skin soft without blocking my pores or causing my skin to look as though I'd been spreading oil from the chip pan over my face. Though I do have to allow my skin the occasional break from so much use or my skin gets oily anyway. It could also be useful if you have dry skin to add some extra moisture to your skin alongside your usual moisturiser.
On squeezing the gel into my fingers I notice that the gel is a little runny, but smooth and you only need a small amount to cover your face. This means that the 75ml tube lasts quite a long time, so you are definitely getting your moneys worth from this product. It is light and is absorbed into your skin leaving no sticky residue; just smooth skin. I have so far been impressed at how smooth my skin feels after application. The smell is clean and fresh; you can easily smell the tea tree oil and the witch hazel.
Typically, this product is only to be used at night, before bed and after cleansing. As it is designed to 'work intensively while you sleep'. However, I find its great to use in the morning as well.
-- Price and Availability --
You can find this range in most Boots stores along the skincare aisle. It is also quite often on offer at 2 products for £5. To go along with the night treatment gel, I would recommend the cleanser or the facial scrub, which are both great products.
-- Conclusion --
If you are looking for a product that helps keep your skin clear, looking and feeling fresh then I would definitely reccomend this product which I have found to be nothing but effective in that regard. It is well priced and long lasting so it is suitable for people on all budgets. Its lightly moisturising properties mean that most skin types will find a benefit from it (even those like me that have oily skin).
I use Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel cleanser on my face every night. I have tried many others over the years but always come back to this one. I have written a review about it if you are interested.
Anyway a while ago I was in Boots and had a voucher for £1 off any item in the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel range. When I looked the items were already on offer at 2 for £5 so I chose a bottle of my favourite cleanser and decided to try the Night Treatment Gel. The normal price of this gel is £2.93.
Since I have been eating healthily and losing weight my face has been covered with spots and at 55 I am a bit old for teenage spots! I assume that it is just my body getting rid of the toxins but it is a pain so I thought that I would give this gel a try.
The pale green gel comes in an opaque tube with a flip top lid. It has the Boots logo on the top and the words Tea Tree and Witch Hazel written vertically down the side - as with the rest of the range. The design of this range in pale blue and green makes everything look fresh, clean and appealing.
The details on the tube tell us that the gel 'works intensively while you sleep and helps prevent and fight spots'. I was really pleased to find this gel as, after being so impressed with the cleanser, I expected that this would be a real help to my sad looking skin.
Reading the back of the tube I also found that this gel was 'non greasy' which is really important for me as my skin tends to be slightly greasy anyway so I generally prefer a more astringent product. The information was that this would improve the skin by:
Working intensively while you sleep
Fighting spot-causing bacteria
Lightly moisturising and caring for your skin without blocking pores
The directions instruct you to blend it into your skin after cleansing each night before you go to bed.
Each night I cleanse my skin thoroughly; wash my hands to make sure that there is no dirt on them and then rub a very small amount of the gel into my skin.
It blends into my skin immediately leaving no residue and the feeling is really refreshing. After cleansing it is a lovely feeling on my skin before I get into bed. As with all the items in this range the fragrance is light, fresh, cool and not at all chemical.
I expected it to take a while before I noticed any difference to my skin, but I was pleasantly surprised to see a difference almost immediately. After a couple of days of use my skin was beginning to clear and the minor blemishes had all but gone.
After a couple of weeks use my skin had improved dramatically and yet again I am impressed with another item from the Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel range. So there you are - why pay a fortune for skin care when you can get excellent products at an excellent price?
Although I'm in my twenties, I still suffer from teenage skin and I get frustrated by my skin being patchy, both oily and dry. After trying some expensive branded options, I figured Boots own brand was worth a try and considerably cheaper!
Boots Night Treatment Gel should be applied before bed after thoroughly cleansing the skin. You must clean your hands beforehand else you risk undoing your good work! The gel is pale green, quite runny and pleasant smelling. It does smell of tea tree a bit, but mostly just like body lotion. It goes on really easily and absorbs very quickly. It is cooling and soothing and certainly feels like it's doing its job!
It may be my imagination, but in the shower in the morning I feel like it rinses into my eyes if I'm not careful, which isn't pleasant. But it seems to work quite well to improve my skin condition. It moisturises and tones my skin, leaving my face quite glowing. It hasn't stopped my spots completely, but it's generally improved my skin so I'll continue to use it.
I used this product a while back and found that it mader a slight difference - nothing amazing happened. However it does not feel as harsh on skin as some other products can do, so I recommend it for this. Also the bottle lasts a while so it works out good value. You could also try garnier Pure A's night range as well although it's more expensive but it does work. Make sure you cleanse before using this, and maybe exfoliate as well. You skin feels a lot smoother as well when you wake up in the morning. I think you can smell the tea tree and witch hazel which is a good thing as these are really good products to use. Not sure if this product contains alcohol or not - I hope not and it doesn't smell like it does. Try and get it as part of a 2 for £5 deal so you get even more value - I'd recommend getting it with the face mask or the nose strips.
I found this product whilst looking for Biore products in Boots and thought it sounded good. The gel costs £2.99 for a 75ml tube and it currently on offer for a for £5.
I have problem skin and from time to time get bursts of spots so am constantly on the look out for the next product claiming to be a miracle cure. From experience I've found the products with those sort of claims as a general rule do not work. This product is a Boots own brand, and for the price compared to it's brand rivals, it's worth it. The claims on the pack are as follows-
Keeps you skin clear and healthy by...
*working intensively while you sleep
*fighting spot-causing bacteria
*lightly moisturising and caring for your skin without blocking pores
The directions tell you to blend it into your skin before you go to bed, after cleansing. I've been using it for a few weeks now and I love it. I can't say it's a miracle cure but it has made a difference to my complexion.
The best thing about it though is the sensation when you apply it. It's so cooling and refeshing that I've taken to using it at other times not just at night. When I get in from work I take my make up off and then apply this. It really refreshes the skin after a tough day.
The gel is part of the Tea tree and witch hazel range at Boots. I often find that Tea Tree products smell very medicinal, however this gel has a lovely soft fragrance.
Yes, it's another product on my dressing table, possibly non essential. However I actually enjoy using this product. I love the smell and the sensation, plus it doesn't break the bank. So if it imporves my complexion, will that's just a bonus! It's doing well so far, the real test will be when the spotty results of my christmas chocolate consumption show up!
Im thoroughly pleased with this product from boots.After being reccomended tea tree and witch hazel products for my impurities on my pores, i decided to purchase this along with the foaming face wash.The price is excellent, from boots its £2.79, however i got it part of a deal offer which is two of their certain products for £5.00.The general idea of this is to apply this gel overnight, once you have cleansed your face.After my first use i was astonished at the results, my skins so much better in comparison to how it was before i used this product, the smell isn't too strong, and quickly aborbs. You immediently wake up refreshed and toned! trust me, i had really bad skin before i used this product, i really suggest you use it! its amazing!take care, xo
Boots Tea Tree + Witch Hazel Night Treatment Gel is a non-greasy gel which works while you sleep to help fight spots. It's available in Boots stores or on their website and costs £2.79 for a 75ml tube.
Boots say this non-greasy night treatment gel contains antibacterial Tea Tree Oil and skin calming Witch Hazel which help keep your skin clear and healthy. It works intensively while you sleep to fight spot causing bacteria and lightly moisturise the skin without blocking your pores.
To use it you just need to smooth it onto your skin with clean fingers and blend in. For best results it should be used every evening after cleansing.
The gel is quite runny, not like most gels I've come across which are generally thicker in consistency. It comes in a plastic tube with a flip-top lid but the hole it comes out of is quite large, so it can sometimes be difficult not to get too much out because of the consistency of the gel.
The gel goes on smoothly and easily and it feels nice and cooling on the skin. I've used gels before that basically leave a layer on the skin which you then have to wait for it to dry and then wash it off in the morning. This one is not like that, it absorbs quickly into the skin like a moisturiser and doesn't leave any residue on the skin. The skin feels really smooth after you apply it. It doesn't smell too strong, I just get a slight whiff of tea tree every now and again from it but it's not a strong scent at all.
I originally bought this for myself, as despite me being the wrong side of 50 I still have combination skin and get breakouts every now and again. I found that it worked very well for me and it seems to help get rid of breakouts quicker than if I just leave my skin alone and wait for them to go of their own accord. I also find it keeps my skin nicely moisturised rather than drying it out like most spot treatment products do.
I now also buy this for my youngest daughter. She's only 11 but hit puberty early and has been suffering from greasy, spotty skin for a couple of years now. As she's still so young I don't want to use anything that might be harsh on her skin, so this seemed perfect. She applies it to her face every night before bed and it does seem to make a difference to her skin. After using it regularly for a while she is getting less spots and the ones she has seem to go down quicker and don't get as big or red as they used to. I would never expect something like this to cure her spots altogether, particularly as they're mainly down to hormones, so this does as good a job as I could expect from anything without having to resort to harsher products which might damage her delicate skin. And it also leaves her skin smooth and moisturised, which I've never known any other spot treatment to do, so I'm very impressed.
