I've always loved Lush's bath bombs, but I've recently started to buy more of my beauty products from Lush, as I'm trying to use more natural products on my skin and hair. I've been using this Toner for quite a while now and it's one of my firm favourites.
--- What's in it?---
*Tea Tree Water to clarify the skin
*Grapefruit Water to invigorate and refresh
*Juniperberry Water to balance the skin
*Limonene which is a colourless liquid with a lemon fragrance and occurs naturally in essential oils.
The toner also contains two products that aren't natural but are safe synthetics. These are Perfume and Methylparaben.
---Using the product---
I use this toner after Micellar water to remove any last traces of makeup. I personally like to spray some toner onto a cotton pad and directly onto my face before gently wiping the cotton pad over my face and eyes, although you could just spray it onto the cotton pad and then it will last a lot longer.
I also find that this doesn't sting my eyes so I can happily use this as eye makeup remover. A lot of ordinary makeup removers sting my eyes so I was really glad to find that this didn't!
I bought my first bottle of this when I was having a lot of problems with spot breakouts and this really helped me get my skin back under control. Before trying this product I used to wash my face with cleanser every night as I didn't want to go to bed with traces of makeup on. I ended up drying out my skin which caused the spot outbreaks and this toner was a godsend as it removed those last traces of makeup without drying my skin out.
A few weeks after adding this product to my skincare routine, my skin was back under control. There are still a few things that trigger the odd spot to appear,but it's nothing compared to the breakouts I was getting before.
I love how clean and fresh my skin feels after using this toner, especially when I've been wearing makeup all day. In the summertime I like to keep it in my fridge, as it's lovely and refreshing when sprayed onto a hot face!
---Packaging & Price---
The first time I bought this toner I got the smaller bottle and I had a problem with the packaging. If the bottle wasn't kept completely upright it tended to leak, even though the nozzle was tightly screwed on. I've never encountered that problem again, so I don't know if it was just a one off, or if the small bottles always have that problem.
The smaller bottle contains 100g and costs £4.50, and the larger contains 250g and costs £8.50. I always buy the larger size now as It works out cheaper than buying the smaller size twice.
I love Lush products so have many of them on the go, one product that I use a lot is Lush Tee Tree water.
The product comes in a small black plastic bottle with a spray head. The product is a water containing Tee Tree, Grapefruit and Juniperberry, the ingredients are natural, contain antibacterial, antiseptic properties and are high in vitamins.
The spray can be used in several ways, the first is to simply refresh your skin through the day, this can be onto clean skin or over make up. The second way is that it can be used to help remove traces of make up or cleaners from the skin.
The spray itself really does look like water and has a slight scent of Tea Tree, I can not smell the rest of the ingredients. It is very light when sprayed onto the skin and soaks in almost immediately leaving no residue.
I use my spray in two ways, on days when I am wearing no make up I do tend to build up a residue because my skin is combination. I simply spray the product directly onto my face and wipe it off with a cotton pad.
On a day that I have been wearing make up I use it to actually remove the residue left by my UltraBland cleanser. To do this I spray a little onto my face directly, but I also spray a lot onto the cotton pad so that it is wet through throughly and then wipe my face to remove all traces. I continue this until I cotton pad comes away clear, then allow my face to air dry.
While I don't think this is one of the most important beauty products in my routine I do like how fresh it leaves my skin feeling and do think it helps reduce the amount of spots I suffer from.
The product is really good value at £4.25 for 100g bottle or £7.95 for the 250g bottle. I normally just buy the small bottle which lasts me around 3 months use of on and off use.
LUSH Tea Tree Water is a skin toner. I started using this when I started using Angels On Bare Skin skin cleanser also from lush. I have been using them as a duo for the past couple of weeks me I think it is pretty good. I used to have the breath of fresh air toner and then it expired because I had the biggest size bottle and couldn't get through it fast enough. So I got rid of that and decided to get this one instead as I had heard some good things. It is for normal to oily skin, i have pretty normal skin except my T zone gets oily so I figured this would work well for me. It is made with tea tree water, grapefruit water and juniper berry water which are all supposed to be great for your skin.
To use this product, you spray it on your face after you have cleansed and it is really refreshing. It helps me get up and ready for the day even if I'm not feeling already awake. I noticed that my skin has been producing less oil through out the day, especially on my nose and T zone since using this. I think this is a combination of the cleanser and the toner. This product is reasonably priced and does a good job for the money. I rate this a 5/5 as it did everything I expected it to do and more. It has helped my skin a lot as I am no longer as oily as I used to be which prevents breakouts.
Tea Tree Water is a skin toner from Lush. It's available in a small sized 100ml bottle or a slightly larger 250ml bottle. The bottle is a spray bottle so it has its own handy pump which is great for using out and about when you need a quick freshen up. I find that the smaller bottle is the perfect size for your handbag and I often use it on the tube when I'm feeling hot and stuffy. The toner instantly cools you down and perks you up.
I have quite spotty/ blemished skin and due to the natural Tea Tee oil this toner contains I find that it helps to control my oil/ spotty skin, rebalancing it. The toner isn't at all drying, in fact I find it quite soothing and healing. I once had THE most painful nose due to using cheap tissues when suffering from a cold. I sprayed a little of this toner on to a cotton wool pad and used that to wipe underneath my nose. Within a couple of hours I could feel my sore skin healing and it had completely cleared up within a day.
The toner doesn't sting the eyes if you happen to accidently get the toner into them.
I use this toner all year round without any problems. It's great for use during the summer months to cool you down but it also helps during the winter months when your skin is quite dry. I find the toner to be hydrating without over drying your skin, nor does it strip your skin of its natural oils. The toner smells lovely too and it lasts a good while as the spray pump delivers just the right amount each time.
I would recommend this toner as it works really well on oily and/ or spotty skin. Plus it's 100% natural and free from animal testing.
WHAT IS IT?
This is water that has been mixed with tea tree oil to make a product that works like a toner and will help to protect your skin from breakouts and blemishes also.
Tea Tree Water comes in a plastic spray bottle that I think is a very convenient way to apply a product like this. You spray it on your skin from a distance and the mist is so fine that you do not have to rub it into your face so you can apply it over your make up if you need to.
WHAT I THINK
I think this is a very good idea and I have bought it many times even though I use other toning products also. The smell is not harsh like you would think and even though you can smell the tea tree it does not stay on my skin for very long and it does not make my perfume smell bad.
It makes my skin feel tighter so I know that the effect of the toner is good, it is a little bit drying on my skin but alot of toners are like that and I know the products to use after in case it happens. I do not get blemishes very often but people on the forum of Lush say that this works very well if they have problem skin or if they feel they are going to get spots soon, from the smell I think it would work very good like that.
For a bottle of 250ml it costs £7.75 and that is alot but it lasts for a very long time because you do not use very much of the product every time you spray your face. I am happy to spend that money on it because it is a very useful product and can be used to remove make up also so that is another use.
4 Dooyoo Stars.
Firstly, my skin type is combination to oily (more towards oily). I suffer from occasional breakouts.
I'm always very dubious to try skincare products, as some tend to give me spots. However, as i'd heard a lot of good things about Lush and the natural ingredients in their products, i thought i would venture into this. I'm a lover of face sprays, i don't think you can beat spraying a cold mist on your face on a warm day.
So after googling around, i decided to purchase this Lush tea tree spray. The small bottle (100g) retails at £3.95 and the large bottle (250g) retails at £7.25. I decided to go with the smaller bottle just to test the water - although i now regret this as i have fallen in love!
The smell of this product is the only disadvantage for me. Ironically, I cannot stand the smell of tea tree. However, this is a personal thing. The scent is not as strong as pure tea tree oil, but still very strong.
You can use this tea tree water one of two ways - 1. Spray directly onto the face and allow to dry. or 2. Spray onto a cotton pad and sweep across the face. I use both of these methods depending on my method of cleansing. If I use a cream cleanser with a cotton pad, i'll use a cotton pad for the toner too to remove any excess cleanser. If I've just got out of the shower, i spray it directly onto my face and leave to dry.
I have now replaced my previous toner with this. I can't say it reduces my spots greatly, but since using this i have noticed my spots have stopped cropping up. Whether this is a coincidence or not i'm unsure, but i'll thank Lush for the clear face!
Overall, this is a lovely product even if you don't suffer from spots/oily skin. It's refreshing and great for after the shower. It leaves your skin feeling soft and squeaky clean. The only downside is how expensive it is!!
I purchased a spray bottle of this from Lush last year. My spray bottle was 100ml but you can purchase it in a bigger bottle that's 250ml in size.
The toner can be sprayed straight onto your face from the bottle or it can be sprayed onto cotton wool and then used on your face (directly from the cotton wool pad). I tend to spray the toner straight onto my face as it's really refreshing used that way. You can even keep the toner in the fridge for extra refreshment. The toner smells pleasant and uplifting. You can detect the tea tree that is in the toner but it smells quite herbal to me. It doesn't smell unpleasant at all.
The toner helps combat spots and tea tree is a gentle antiseptic so that helps with the redness and irritation. After using the toner my face feels completely clean and the toner helps to finish off what your cleanser has started. My face doesn't feel sore or tight when I use this, in fact it feels loads better. If I am suffering from an outbreak of spots the toner helps to calm my skin down, aiding my skin's healing process.
Sometimes my skin can feel a little itchy, especially if my skin is in the middle of a breakout. Luckily this toner helps to take away that itchy feeling, leaving my skin looking clear and healthy. I can then get on with my day without worrying about my skin.
This toner boosts my confidence and it helps with my spotty/ oily skin. I'd definitely recommend it!
There are some Lush products that I try once and never want to try again, some products that are OK to use but haven't fallen in love with, and there are some that I keep on repurchasing. This Tea Tree Water would definitely be one of the products I've repurchased many times since my first bottle!
(Lush) Tea tree is a wonder oil for anyone with oily or spot prone skin. It has antibacterial, antiseptic and antimicrobal properties. Where the skin needs balancing, where there are spots, gentle tea tree is just the job.
Also contains grapefruit water and juniperberry water to refresh and tone the skin. Our toner water range is an attempt to deliver good quality essential oils to your face in the correct concentration. They are not just toners, but are aromatherapy in dilution, ready to be used at a moment's notice. They can be used for removing traces of cleansers and face products - but can also be used at any time of the day as a quick facial refresher or to cool the skin.

Currently the product sells at £3.75/100g or £7/250g and is available for purchase either online on www.lush.co.uk or in-store. Various ebayers sell Lush products, but after reading bad reviews about dishonest practice, I've never been tempted to buy mine elsewhere!
When I get spots, it's generally on the T-Zone area and occasionally at the side of my face. When I do get spots, I find myself only turning to this product. I don't like using too many products on my skin, especially since my skin is pretty sensitive. It does a good job at gradually clearing up your skin giving a healthier appearance to it. I really love how refreshing it feels, in fact my other half sometimes uses mine and sprays it on his face(!) If you have a chance to pop into a Lush, you can probably ask to try it out (as with many of their products.) After applying, the toner feels nice and cool on the face and I remember reading a blog where a girl likes to keep it in a small spray bottle in her handbag to carry around on hot days!
I usually apply the toner on with a cotton pad - I find this works really well for me. Apart from using it as a toner, I actually like to use it to remove makeup. I have an all-purpose moisturiser which is really natural - I use this to get off the majority of my makeup. Afterwards, I use the tea tree toner on a cotton pad to clear up the excess. I find this works really well and wouldn't turn back to using any make up removers. I find makeup removers to be too harsh on my skin and dislike using them around my eye area to remove makeup.
The price is ok for this product and I typically get the £7/250g ones because they do last quite a long time. I can't remember the time period, but these do last longer than most Lush products I've bought in the past. The spray bottle is super convenient for using on different occasions. I would recommend it to those who have oily or acne-prone skin as I've found that it's helped my skin, especially on the occasions where I do get a breakout.
Lush Tea Tree water is a toner and one of the best around in my opinion. It costs £3.75 for a 100g bottle or £7 for 250g. In my opinion the 250g bottle is better value so I always get that. Admittedly it is not the cheapest toner available but bearing in mind the quality, how long it lasts and the fact that it is 100% natural ingredients I do feel it is worth the price.
This toner is for normal, oily and dry skin, it is not aimed at one particular skin type which is good as it appeals to everyone. I have quite dry skin, and have noticed it does make my skin a little dryer unfortunetly so if you have very dry skin I wouldn't reccomend it at all. The tea tree water comes in a black Lush bottle (very unisex in design) with a spray pump. Some people like to spray it on there faces straight from the bottle however I prefer to spray it onto a cotton pad and then rub it onto my face (after i've cleansed). I do sometimes spray it onto my face in a morning because it's so refreshing (especially if you keep it in the fridge) and does a great job in keeping my face nice and clean - it removes excess dirt and oil really well.
The toner actually only contains 3 ingredients: tea tree water, grapefruit water and juniperberry water, which are all diluted so they're not as harsh as the pure stuff would be. Each ingredient is has its own unique factor, with the tea tree in particular been a great ingredient - it increases the speed of healing, so if you do have a blemish it will get rid of it quickly. It also removes bacteria and dead skin cells as well as cleansing and moisurising the skin, and it is an antioxidant which will help in making your skin clearer. I have never heard of grapefruit water or juniperberry water before however after a quick look online and doing a bit of research on each there is not a huge amount to know about them apart from they are natural ingredients.
I really like this toner, I have had my 250 gram bottle of it since March and have noticed a decent amount of improvement in my skin since I first started using it; I very rarely break out in spots (much less than I used to anyway!), and when I do break out, it clears up really fast which I personally think is thanks to this product. My skin isn't really very oily, although as I said before my T zone does get oily on occasion and the toner helps get rid of the excess oil quickly and effeciently, leaving my skin looking clear, fresh and healthy, and also looking smoother. The water absorbs quickly (although it is definetly not moisturising) and doesn't drip everywhere unless you squirt alot of it onto your face in one go - as I said I prefer to use cotton wool to apply mine. I have very sensetive skin and this hasn't irritated it once in the time i've been using it. On a side note try not to get it on your lips as it doesn't taste nice at all and dries them out quickly.
The toner smells quite weird, I can't really describe it. I thought it would be quite floral and fruity due to grapefruit however it actually reminds me of a sanitized hospital ward, which doesn't sound great but I soon got used to it and it doesn't really bother me. Overall reccomended.
I have always had sensitive skin but never a problem with spots. However, two and a half years ago, I got a job at McDonald's and lo and behold, the grease destroyed my spotless face. Sad times. I've tried so many things in the past to get rid of them. I have recently developed an obsession with Lush Cosmetics with their freshness and respect for our planet earth and their luscious scents!
After trying their Toner Tabs, I was disappointed to find that it didn't even budge my spots. So I went back and told them this and asked if they could suggest something that would suit my situation better and they showed me the Tea Tree Water. I took the smaller bottle at close to £3.40 (the bigger bottle was over £6).
I have been smothering my skin with it twice a day for 3 or 4 days now and the verdict is: ITS WORKING! I have noticed my skin being softer and spots are clearing slowly but surely. Result! Its slow progress but I'm happy with it.
I bought this when I purchased the Angels on Bare Skin cleanser. I basically bought it on a whim. I was interested in getting into healthier and more organic skincare and have quite bad skin so am willing to bet on pretty much any product now.
Like most Lush products, the tea tree water is packed in a plain black packet. It might not be particularly striking but Lush make all of their packaging with recycled plastic, and you can take back your empty bottles to them, where they then recycle them again. This makes the pretty boring packaging totally worthwhile. It also has all the ingredients on the side of the bottle, which is great as you can see exactly how healthy and natural the product is.
I think mine was £6.75 though the price may have gone up or done since then. I think this is a fair price considering how well the product works for me.
I use this after I've used cleanser to ensure my face is really clean and fresh. You just spray the water onto cotton wool and wipe it on your face. It smells and feels really fresh on your face. It's a really, really good product and leaves my skin feeling really soft.
I absolutely love this product and I would now never use any other toner. In combination with other Lush products it really does make my face feel clean, soft and fresh. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Price = £3.45 for 100g or £6.75 for 250g
Ingredients = Tea tree water, Grapefruit water, Juniperberry water, Limonene, Perfume, Methylparaben.
Lush description = Tea tree is extremely soothing and can work wonders on troubled or oily skin. Use this throughout the day to help tackle blemishes and lift your spirits.
Personal Experience = I have relatively sensitive skin which is also prone to the occasional breakout and so I decided that using toner just before applying my moisturiser would be the perfect way to refresh my skin without drying it out. I purchased this particular Lush toner as it was relatively cheap in comparison to some of the other products on offer and also offered to naturally deal with my blemishes.
Upon my first application I found that it took a while to absorb into the skin and the definite tea tree aroma took a while to get used to. However, it did provide a refreshing feel and made the skin very smooth once it had been absorbed. In the long term it did have a drying effect, possibly because it was designed more for skin which is slightly oilier than mine. To prevent this I did have to apply moisturiser straight afterwards otherwise I was left with tight skin.
After almost a month of use I have noticed no particularly impressive results as regards a reduction in my blemishes and pores. This was particularly disappointing considering what the Lush description had offered. For those of you who are particularly worried about artificial chemicals it is also worth noting that this product still contains perfume and Methylparaben.
For the above reasons I will not be purchasing this product again. Although it does provide an initial refreshing feeling it has no apparent impact on my skin. It may be that it would be more effective on less sensitive skin, although if yours is prone to drying I suggest using this product sparingly.
*Lush Tea Tree Water*
I'm sure sooner or later I will have tried all the products in Lush but this is the latest Item that I have been using , after using a different toner last time I thought I'd try something new, however I didn't read that this one is more for oily skin and i have very dry skin but It still works fine for me .
simple packaging with the infamous lush little black bottle , this also has a spray cap to so it's easy to use and the white label on it telling you what it is.
I love the smell as I does have a lush teatree sent that isn't too over powering like some.
Directions of use?
After cleaning my face , I use this product. Close your eye and spray over you face then I get a cotton pad a wipe my face , this is good at getting any extra make up off that you missed when you washed your face and the tea tree in this product is good for the spots , if you have any!!
How much is this costing me ?
I only bought the small bottle as it's cheaper and first time of buying this product I wanted to make sure I liked it before buying a bigger one .for 100ml it's £2.99 or something , I can't remember exactly but not a good price and I have had this for a few months now so it lasts ages!
I would recommend this product to you all as I feel it really does work for your skin and the tea tree is good for your skin aswel.
Ciao/dooyoo : - D
Lush's Tea Tree Toner water comes in two sizes: 100g for £3.25 and 250g for £6.35. It is presented in a hardish black plastic bottle with a clear lid over its spray nozzle. Wrapped around the front of the bottle is a Lush label stating that is is a Lush product and its name, product code (useful if you are ordering from mail order) plus a little description of what it actually does.
The Tea Tree Toner Water is made for troublesome skin. Tea Tree is a reputable ingredient in products which are for getting rid and soothing spots. It is antibacterial, antifungal and effective against fungi called yeast. It controls spots with a mild antiseptic. It is a perfect match for use with Herbalism. It also has Juniperberry oil added to it which is another oil good for zapping away spots.
When I say it is a Toner Water, it is just that - a watery liquid which is what most toners are. It has a strong Tea Tree scent. I personally love the smell of Tea Tree as it smells quite antiseptic and generates a very clean feeling. It is a refreshing smell.
When you spray it, it comes out in a mist much like a body spray does. To apply it you are supposed to hold it at just enough distance from your face that you will only need to use one spray from the bottle to cover your entire face.
Once you do spray it, I have to admit it feels a little strange. It feels soothing but at the same time it doesn't. Whenever I use Tea Tree products although they feel nice on the skin and cooling, I get a pin prick type of feeling when it settles on to my skin. It is strange and I don't know if any else has this effect.
The toner doesn't absorb very well and I find if I am going to be using make up straight after, then I need to dab some of it off and rub it into my skin a little bit as it tends to need to actually dry out rather than soak in to the skin. This is slightly annoying. Once on the skin and the pin pricking feeling has disappeared (it only lasts a few seconds) I can feel my skin feeling slightly smoother than before and also because I have sprayed the toner on my face and it is water based, my face feels refreshed. I do find that I carry the toner water around with me in my bag and spray it sometimes if I get hot.
The Tea Tree toner water does work. I have found it to calm and rid my face of spots and blimishes. It leaves you feeling refreshed with smoother skin on your face. It doesn't make your skin feel dry or tight as some toners can. It does make my skin clearer. I use it alot with Herbalism as they make the perfect skin care routine couple.
I had tried some of the toner tabs from Lush, but I hadn't tried any of their liquid toners, until the last time I visited when I picked up a bottle. I decided to try the Tea Tree Toner Water, as according to the Lush website it's supposed to go well with the Fresh Farmacy cleanser, which I'm using at the moment.
Tea Tree Toner is described as a 'tougher toner for spotty skin'. The chief ingredient is tea tree, which is antibacterial and antifungal and helps to control spots. The toner also contains juniper berry water which has antiseptic properties, and grapefruit water to refresh and tone. It is suitable for vegans.
The toner comes in a black pump action bottle with the Lush brand name and the name of the product. It is described as a bestseller for normal to oily skin. The pump of the bottle works really well and doesn't stop working like some bottles I've tried in the past.
Rather than apply this toner with cotton wool, I tend to shut my eyes and spray it on my face a few times. It's probably more hygienic this way and it feels very refreshing. The toner has the colour and consistency of ordinary water but has the distinctive fresh smell of tea tree. I usually wipe it away with cotton wool before applying my moisturiser.
I've found that using this toner in conjunction with Fresh Farmacy cleanser has helped clear blemishes from my skin and reduce the number of spots I'm getting. When I apply it I sometimes find my skin feels a little tight, however once I've applied moisturiser this tightness goes away. I sometimes find this toner too drying for use twice a day, but using it once a day or when I'm having a particularly bad skin day it's great.
I really like this toner and though I've used it quite a bit over the last few weeks there's still loads left - and I have the smaller size. I think it might be a bit harsh to use in the winter, when my skin tends to get a bit drier, but I'd happily repurchase next summer.
A bottle of this toner will set you back £3.25 for 100g or £6.35 for the larger 250g, which I feel, for Lush, is very good value for money.
