“ Brand: Lush / Type: Toner / Skin type: for dry skin and for all types „
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.

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.
I love Lush and their amazing range of bath and beauty products. I'm making my way through their facial skin care range to try and see what works best for my fussy skin. My skin tends to be more oily in the summer, so Tea Tree Water toner seemed like a good addition to the cleansing regime. It's available from Lush stores and online at www.lush.co.uk in two different sized bottles. A 100g bottle will set you back £3.25, and it's £6.35 for 250g. You get a small saving if you buy the bigger bottle, but the smaller bottle is still a good price and it's more convenient if you're just trying things out like I am.
Lush say "Tone and detoxify oily skin with tea tree, grapefruit and juniper. Take control of those troublesome pores! A best seller for Normal to Oily skin. Use on cotton wool to remove excess cleanser and to refresh the skin."
Toning is a necessary step between cleansing and moisturising and this toner did a good job of removing any last traces of make-up or cleansing products. It kept my skin oil-free for several hours, but as is often the case my skin starts pumping out the oil again by the time the afternoon comes around. I didn't feel like it helped with reducing my pores which are naturally quite open. The liquid is very refreshing and cooling on my skin and it feels squeaky clean afterwards. This has a very thin and watery consistency, and sometimes it did feel a little like I was just wiping my face with plain water and the effects lasted only a short while.
The smell of this is very vibrant and has a bright, citrus scent. It's fresh and uplifting and has a nice natural feel to it. The ingredients are very few and very basic, it's 100% natural and it's great that this contains no harsh chemicals that strip your skin bare like some of the stronger toning fluids can. Tea tree is antibacterial it works hard to treat oily or problematic skin. Its antiseptic properties can help to clear up spots and blemishes. The Tea Tree Water also includes juniper berry and grapefruit waters to refresh and tone with natural oils.
Spritzing this directly onto my face is a bit too shocking for part of my still-half-asleep-while-getting-ready morning routine, so I just remove the lid and pour a bit directly onto a cotton pad and use this to wipe over my skin. I've recently started using re-useable cotton cleansing cloths from the Body Shop instead of disposable cotton wool pads, and these are really effective for applying the toner.
I think it would be nice and refreshing to use as a spray during hot summer days. I've been using this toner daily and the 100g bottle has lasted me around 2 months. I did accidentally knock the bottle over and lost a fair bit of liquid in the process, but I think that it's lasted well and provided good value for money.

This is a vegan product and Lush are against animal testing, please keep your beauty cruelty free!
I was in my favourite shop the other day (Lush) when I came across this 'Tea Tree Water' which in fact is a toner - to be used once you have cleansed / cleaned your face.
It cost £3.25 for a 100g bottle and is suitable for vegans. I find this price very reasonable - cheap in fact for Lush and am glad that I noticed it.
It comes in a plain black 'pump action' bottle, with a clear plastic top to avoid any leakages. The bottle is bigger than those of the likes of 'grease lightning' and 'helping hands' but the same style bottle.
To use you need to squirt it onto a cotton wool ball or pad or something of the similar likes, it soaks into this easily, but not so that you need to squirt again and end up wasting loads of it.
You then simply wipe it over your face after you have cleansed. There is no need to rub or scrub with this as it is simply just a toner.
It is cool and refreshing to use and since it is Tea Tree it does smell nice, however I do find that it is an either love it or hate it kind of smell.
This has improved with the condition of my skin - beforehand it seemed "patchy" and did occasionally brake out in spots, however since using this any spots have been kept at bay and my face seems healthier.
It seems more even and has a healthier glow to it, as I said I haven't had any breakouts, it seems more bright and "youthful".
Overall I would highly recommend this item as it is a very small price to pay for a clear and healthy looking skin. I will definitely be purchasing this again and it has been the best toner that I have used in a long time!
Lush Tea Tree Water is one of Lushs' toners.
It comes in a little, black plastic bottle with a schooshy spray lid.
It's not often I'm dissapointed with Lush products, but this is one of those rare occasions.
After spending months using Lush cleansers to get my skin to a nice state - one where I felt comfortable without make up and actually didn't begrudge having to 'waste time' with a skincare routine, Tea Tree Toner came along and ruined it!
I bought it to see if I could make my skin look even better - the shop assistant said this would be the best one for me.
For a few days I scooshed it onto my skin at night and in the morning to remove traces of make up and tone my skin. Even though it smelt like used water from a vase of flowers, I persevered. Nothing happened to my skin for the first 3 days.
Then, on the fourth day, I woke up with an erruption of spots all over my chin and nose and cheeks. I've never had that many spots at one time before and there was nothing else that could have caused it.
(Tea tree oils etc. are usually my first port of call to get rid of a spot, so I'd expected this to PREVENT spots - not cause them!)
I stopped using it that day and managed to get my skin back to normal through some emergency skincare (With Lush products, just not a toner water!)
Overall, it seems I payed a ridiculous amount of money for a bottle of water that looks like it came out of someones Aunties vase and all I got to show for it was a face full of spots.
Once puchased the grease lightning and found that it worked very well on my skin I thought that I'd give this one ago!
It is a tea tree water, which is used to remove excess dirt, skin and oil on the skin to leave it softer and cleaner.
It cost me £3.10 for a 100ml bottle, there was a larger bottle but as I was using it for the first time I thought it best to go for the smaller one.
The tea tree water comes in a basic black bottle with a spray lid and cap over that. It has changed alot from the picture shown and looks nothing like that! It has white writing on it saying 'Tea Tree Water' and has a small Lush logo at the top of the label on the bottle.
The spray lid makes it very easy to use. You simply spray onto a piece of cottonwool or tissue and cleanse the face, before using this you should always make sure you have a clean face and no make up on, etc. On doing this I didn't feel any tingling or stinging to let me know it was working so I wondered whether it was doing anything. However once I had finished cleansing my skin felt very soft which was a huge releive as with dry skin I was worrieds about it drying it out even more!
I also noticed upon using I seemed to get less spots and my skin seemed less oily and much more even. The redness from any spots I did have was also muh reduced which was always a bonus.
Upon using it everyday I did find that I was almost 'over working' my skin to cause it having a few break outs, so I stopped using it everyday and changed to every other day, only to find that it only made a little difference.
I now use this product every 3 days and I find that this works great for me as my skin has reduced redness and I have much less spots.
I would really reccomend this to anyone with troublesome skin or for spotty teenage skin, especially if you don't want to use anything too strong as this is very mild, yet it works!
I originally bought this in a lunchtime dash down the highstreet during the hight of summer. My skin tends to just disentegrate into an oil slick when it's warm outside so I was just looking for something that I'd be able to use on my skin to refresh it during the day.
***My Skin Profile***
I'm in my early twenties and my skin tends to be Normal/Combination and I suffer from quite frequent breakouts mostly around my chin and nose. I tend to have shiny/oily skin in my T-Zone too and I find that my skin has the tendancy to look a little dull from timer to time.
I dashed across to my local Lush store as their reputation for natural, ethical skin products attracted me, as well as the lovely smell wafting out onto the street. Among all the toners the Tea Tree stood out the most as everyone knows Tea Tree can do wonders for the skin. It was helpful that it was recommended specifically for oily skin so I bought a 250g bottle which cost £6.21.
The toner is packaged in a simple black, plastic bottle with a spritzer top.
***The Toner Itself***
The toner has a very pleasant smell that is not at all over powering and contains many natural ingrediants including Tea Tree, Juniper and Grapefruit.
***How to Use***
The bottle states it is best to use on cotton wool and sweep over the face. You can also spray the toner directly onto the face, I find that either method works fine.
I find the toner to be very light and refreshing and perfect for cooling down hot, flushed skin. It does help with removing excess oil and keeping my skin oil free for at least a few hours. I imagine that it might be good for people with sensitve skin as Lush are renowned for using all natural, ethical products so it is very gentle on the skin.
