      all clean and fresh faced!

      Ok so my review is on the Superdrug Tea Tree & Peppermint Foam Face Wash. I just totally love this product. I was in desperate need for a tea tree stick to help with my spots as they got so bad - my friend had the spot stick and it was great. I took a trip to Superdrug mainly for the spot stick then realised Superdrug also sold other tea tree products this one being one of them. At the time they had an offer of 2 for so much (not sure how much I paid as was a few months ago) I use this facial wash a few times a week and it's just great - it really helps my skin. This comes in a plastic bottle with a pump on the top so when you squeeze it the foam comes out of the top - I tend to use 3 squirts and rub this into my skin in circular motions ensuring I have covered my face well for a few minutes then I rinse with water and you can definitely tell it has peppermint in it the second you use the water it literally takes my breath away but I like it! After using the product my skin feels so clean and fresh I just love it. Good one Superdrug - great product!

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Leaves your face feeling minty fresh and your nose happy

      Firstly, I'll mention my skin type. It's combination, so is usually very oily but occasionally when I overdo it on a product or when the weather is bitter, my skin gets patchy and dry. The reason for choosing this product is because I know tea tree is a good antibacterial reactor for spots. I don't have millions, but I have some, and they are very annoying. The second reason I chose this particular product is because I am skint. I used to buy the expensive Green People toiletries, and other stuff from the Natural Collection website, but at the moment I am strapped for cash. This costs about £2.99 and is on a permanent multi-buy of 3 for 2 or 2 for £4, which is great if you can afford two products at once. The third reason I choose to shop at Superdrug when I can't afford the usual, is that it states on the back of every own brand product that they do not test on animals, and are suitable for vegetarians. Yay! No nasty slaughterhouse by-products on my face, thank you.

      Price: It's nice and cheap for what it is, and last ages so you don't have to buy it very often.

      Aesthetics: Even though the colour is slightly funky - not what you'd expect from something natural - I take comfort in the fact that there are no animal bits in it. The bottle is quite large at 160 ml compared to other face wash brands, and the pump is easy to use and doesn't get clogged or stuck or anything. No leakages either when it got bashed about in my rucksack whilst camping. One pump is plenty to do my face as it foams up into a lovely lather. The scent is divine. I love tea tree and peppermint, and the freshness of it just leaves you and your face loving it.

      Performance/quality: It certainly does well at cleaning my greasy face morning and night. Once again you can feel the freshness on your skin - it tingles slightly, but not painfully, and your skin tightens a bit. This indicates (to me anyway) that my pores are tighter and less obvious, therefore less dirt can enter and get trapped. It lasts an absolute age as well, which is a bonus. I wouldn't recommend overusing it though, as it does dry out your skin fast, and this is coming from greasy McGrease here. So I'd leave it at just morning and night. It does well at keeping the spots at bay, that is when I quit touching my face and poking about at every little imperfection *slaps hand*. I get the occasional pimple, but I think this has more to do with stress and hormones than the inadequacy of my face wash. So, overall I think this is pretty good quality for an own-brand product.

      Recommend: Sure would recommend. You can't really go wrong for the price. Unless your skin isn't suited of course, but I can only speak for myself. It does well at controlling the old oil.

        Disadvantages

        Superdrug Tea Tree & Peppermint Foam Face Wash

        I really like the Tea Tree range from The Body Shop and it agrees with my skin well and helps a lot when I am on my period and my skin starts over producing oil and giving me a few spots. My one big criticism of the range is that it is expensive for what you get though I do appreciate that the Body Shop uses good quality ethical ingredients which can cost a little bit more.

        One good alternative to the range that I have found which is cheaper and almost as good is the tea tree range by Superdrug and I often buy myself their facial wipes and their foaming cleanser when money is a bit tight and I can't really afford to spend the money on the Body Shop tea tree range.

        The foaming face wash from Superdrug is £2.99 compared to the £5 for the version from the Body Shop and as I only usually buy it when it is a third off I get it for £2 which is a considerable saving.

        The foaming face wash comes in a plastic bottle with a pump action dispenser and the liquid inside is a light green colour. When you pump the liquid out of the bottle it transforms into a foam.

        This face wash smells quite strongly of peppermint and tea tree but it is actually quite a refreshing smell and not too strong. The foam is quite fluffy and two pumps is enough for me to wash my whole face and neck. It cleans well and leaves my skin tingling slightly. I always feel as though my skin has been cleansed well when using this but I don't think it is as good as the Body Shop one as removing make-up. Most of the time I remove my make-up with a cream or lotion and cotton wool but sometimes I will just wash it off in the shower and I find that I need to wash my face at least twice when using this to remove all traces of my make-up.

        I also think it is slightly drying on my skin. It doesn't leave my skin feeling really tight but I do notice a slight tightening of it when I have dried my face after using it and sometimes it leaves the sides of my nose with dry patches that I have to make sure and moisturise well. I think the slight dryness is caused by the fact that this really does help with the over production of oil in my skin and it stops my skin from looking so shiny and oily when my hormones are playing up.

        I quite like this but I think I have been spoiled by the Body Shop version which is better but this is a good alternative when I can't afford to buy the Body Shop one.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        One of my favourite bargain beauty buys

        DESCRIPTION

        This is a foaming face wash by tea tree, suitable for daily use. It claims that it will "cleanse and refresh your skin leaving it clean, smooth and refreshed". Tea tree oil is an extremely old remedy for troublesome skin and was used by the aboriginal people of Australia. This face wash also contains peppermint which is known for it's refreshing properties leaving a tingly feeling on the skin.

        PACKAGING

        The packaging is pretty basic. A clear cap covers the off white plastic pump. The bottle is also see through with the name of the product on the front and a brief description on the back. It also gives directions suggesting you should "wet face, apply 1 or 2 pumps of foam into the palm of your hand and massage onto your face using circular movements". The packaging on the whole does look a bit cheap but that doesn't take away from the quality of the product inside.

        PRICE

        I was chuffed when strolling around my local Poundland to find this. The bottle is also 200ml, the one's in Superdrug which I would assume are more than £1 are only 160ml I think.

        PERFORMANCE

        I've always been a fan of tea tree and have used it on my skin since I was a teenager. I've tried many of their products but this is the first time I've tried their foaming face wash, I've never used another brand of foaming face wash either and so was intrigued when I saw this product for a pound.

        I first pumped some of the product on my dry hand to see how much comes out. The liquid inside the bottle is a bright green colour which people sometimes find off putting with tea tree products however the foam comes out a pure white colour and I would describe the amount from one pump as the size of a small pebble. For this reason I decided for my first wash I would use 2 pumps of product rather than one. I tend to use these sorts of products at night too because I feel they don't have time to work in the morning before I put on my make up.

        The foam is very smooth and has that distinctive tea tree oil smell, it massages into the skin easily and immediately makes you feel cleansed. I tend to massage the product in for about a minute and then rinse the product off with warm water. My skin tingles just slightly afterwards which I like and I've had no irritation whatsoever from using the product. My skin looks more "awake" after use and definitely feels a lot softer.

        I was pleasantly surprised after never using a foam wash before and because the bottle says it's suitable for daily use I've put it into my new routine.

        OVERALL

        A really good product for a fantastic price! It also looks as though it will last me a very long time as I've had the product for 2 months and have been using it everyday and I still have over 3/4s of the product left making this tea tree foaming face wash very economical.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        An excellent part of your cleansing regime and well worth having in your range of products

        I am someone who has skin conditions that lead to me having dry skin and so the usual soaps and things out there can cause me to have major problems so I decided to look around for a new skin cleansing regime and was recommended to use a product with tea tree. I simply love Original Source mint and tea tree products and so when I spotted this in my local Superdrug I decided that it was worth a go as it was on a really good offer and I am glad to say I have been impressed with the results. Here is what I have found of the product.

        Pros:
        The face wash is in very nice and simple packaging that with the pump action allows for a small amount of foam to be released each time you press down on the pump. If you want more then just pump a few more times (normally I will have about 2 or 3 pumps worth).
        This face wash allows you to feel very clean and refreshed each and every time you use it and with a small tingling sensation your skin is left feeling cool and calm (those with skin reactions to products will understand this better than anyone).
        The product smells very nice and so is great to wake your skin up in the morning and freshen you up for the long day ahead.
        Great value for money is at the core of this product as you only require a small amount each use so one bottle will last you for quite a while.

        Negatives:
        Not the strongest of smells when compared to the likes of Original Source but I still think that this up there with the best of them.

        This is a great product that I have found refreshes and cleans your skin whilst being very gentle and cooling to your skin which for me is a hugely important thing due to my skin conditions. The cleansing action is very soft and nice thanks to the foaming action and the foam is one that I found to be very good and unlike others I have tried it was not sticky at all. A fresh fragrance and great feeling it leaves with your skin is simply something I love. The value for money side of this product is just an added bonus. If you are looking for a new cleansing regime then this is a product well worth a try.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Try it, I love it

          I first bought this product over a year ago as I like the refreshing clean feel that tea tree products do to your skin and this product caught my eye when I was browsing in Superdrug one day. 


          Superdrug Tea Tree Foaming Face Wash comes in a 160ml see through plastic container with a pump dispenser on the top. As the bottle is transparent, you can see the bright green solution inside. This product has not been tested on animals which is very important to me and many others. 


          The cleansing solution contains tea tree and peppermint oils and this combination is really refreshing when applied to your face, there is a real cooling effect a few seconds after applying it to your face which makes you feel like your skin is having a deep clean! The foam is squirted out easily into your hand or onto a sponge or face cloth, and it's really light but just the right amount is dispensed so there isn't any waste. I rarely suffer from spots so I can't comment on how well this product works in combatting spots but it keeps my skin clear. During cleansing it makes your skin tingle and you can really smell the mint. After cleansing my skin feels squeaky clean and my skin feels tight so I tend to moisturise after.


          At £2.99 for a 160ml bottle, it's really good value as it has lasted me months, and very good quality, especially for an own brand product, I will continue to buy this so please do not discontinue this Superdrug! My favourite cleanser and really exaggerates the minty tingle when used in conjunction with the steam from the bath or shower! 5 Dooyoo stars from me.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A very good product. I will definetely be trying the whole Tea Tree range now!

          I wanted to try this, as is seemed so refreshing and I was looking for a good but cheap cleanser.

          ~Packaging and Appearance~

          Superdrug Tea Tree Foaming Face Wash comes in a 160ml tube with a dispenser on the top. The bottle is transparent, so you can see the green liquid inside. On the back of the bottle is an ingredients list. This product is paraben free and has not been tested on animals.

          ~Contents~

          The formula contains tea tree and peppermint oils, and this combo is really refreshing. Many have said that this cleanser smellls like antiseptic, but I don't mind, because I like the smell and it does the job! The foam is squirted out easily, and it's really light and luxurious. When I smoothed the foam on my face, it felt very cold but refreshing, and I could smell the mint! It was extremely easy to wash off. It left my skin very dry and tight, but a bit of moisturising and this problem disappeared, and my skin was as smooth as a baby's bum, and after a few days all my spots had gone or improved.

          ~Value~

          At £2.99 for a 160ml bottle, it's really good value, and good quality, especially for Superdrug's own brand! I will be bulk buying next time I visit Superdrug!

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          works well

          I like it when I find good facial products with a good price tag on them, as I buy lots of face creams, lotions, oils and moisturisers from online and as I like certain things and certain brands it is sometimes a costly obsession, so when I find something at a low price with the things I like in them I jump at the opportunity to buy. Sometimes I have totally got it wrong and ended up with a cheap product that isn't any good but this time I think I have found a good one from Superdrug.

          This Superdrug Tea Tree and Peppermint Foam Face Wash cost me £2.99 for a 160ml bottle, which I thought was a good bargain. The bottle is see through and you can see the liquid inside which is like most other tea tree oils and lotions a nice green colour.
          Tea tree has been used in many beauty products as it is great for the skin it has anticeptic properties and heals blemishes, spots and cools and softens the skin.
          This also has the added Peppermint which is also a good cleanser as well as giving the foam a nice minty freshness to it.

          It has a pump action dispenser on the top and you only need a little of this maybe two pumps of the top to cover the face, I pump it once and do my cheeks and chin then another pump for the forehead and nose areas.
          The liquid comes out as a foam and you can smooth it across the skin which feels luxurious and pamering. Gently massage it over a wet face massage it in and rinse it off to be able to feel a fresh smooth clean skin.

          After using the facial foam the skin doesn't feel dry yet it takes away the greasyness in the skin, there is a slight scent of mint left behind for a while which I like as it feels like you have fresh clean skin. the skin looks clean as the pores look clear and the touch ont he skin feels nice and soft. I have sensative skin and it hasn't irritated me.
          You can also get the tea tree and peppermint wipes if you like this combination, but for a daily facial wash this facial foam wash is great.

          I would however keep this out of reach of children as I caught my grandson smoothing this over his chin and pretending to shave with his fingers and although this looked funny at the time it did waste quite a bit of the foam.

          I am happy to recommend it to you.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great value wash for spot prone skin

          I bought this back in november it was on offer in Superdrug two products for £5. I was going through a bad time with my skin, I am currently pregnant and my hormones are making my skin greasy and spotty. I thought I would give this a go as it was reasonably priced.

          The product comes in a see through container with a pump on the top. Yoou get 160ml of product. The product in the container is bright green and it is a liquid. The product contains tea tree and peppermint as well as the usual spot busting ingredient saylic acid. It promises to promote clearer spot free skin due to the antibacterial properties of tea tree oil. You need to use 1-2 pumps of the dispenser. The product magically changes from a liquid to a white foam. You then need to massage into wet skin and rinse. The product has a distinct minty smell which I find very refreshing. You also notice that as you massage it into the skin your skin feels tingly.

          After rinsing this off I noticed my skin felt a little tight and I needed to use a moisturiser. However it did help clear my spots up following regular use twice a day.

          I would recommend this for someone with problem skin, it can be drying if you have sensitive skin. It is however great value for money and the concept of a liquid changing to a foam is good.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          .

          I have only recently tried this range from Superdrug. I've read on Dooyoo about this range and thought it would be good for my skin, but i'm never down the high street that often which is where my branch of Superdrug is, so never got round to buyhing from the range. Last month I was down though and ended up buying quite a few things.

          The range was on offer when I was in. I think the price can vary on what you buy but everything was on a 2 for £5 offer. I think the right price for this was around £3 thought.

          This comes in a pump action bottle which looks like the Dooyoo picture - as usual. The odd thing perhaps is the size of this. It's 160ml, which seems a little strange. Why not 150ml? Who cares really. The bottle is a thick clear plastic bottle and you can see the medium green liquid through the bottle. The lid is quite large as is the pump bit.

          To use you just apply this onto wet skin. Although this is shown as a liquid, once you pump this it comes out in a Foam. I use 2 pumps of this which gives a good enough coverage for my face.

          You can certainly smell the Tea Tree in here, but the nice thing is the peppermint scent. That is quite strong, and reminds me of After Eight's which isn't a bad thing. This smells nice and minty and that bit herbal and even by the smell of it I would say that it smells like it is natural product.

          This is suitable for Oily and Spot Prone skin. I have this, so it should be fine for me. I found that this seemed to take the Oiliness away. deep clean my face and once my face was dried it didn't feel tight or look dried out. This didn't seem to make my Spots disappear, but I didn't notice any more cropping up.

          A good product which is quite similar to The Body Shop Tea Tree range, but that bit cheaper.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          It was too harsh for everyday use on my oily skin.

          I've been using the Body Shop's Tea Tree Facial Wash for a while now and it has been helping to keep my skin under control but lately I've been plagued with outbreaks of horrible spots. This could have just been my skin flaring up but I decided to hunt around for a different facial wash to see if it made any difference. I've often found that my skin becomes accustomed to products after a certain length of time and they become less effective so there was some logic to this thought process! I saw this particular facial wash on a buy two for £5 and thought I might as well give it a go. I'd seen some positive reviews elsewhere so I had some hope that it would work. Tea tree is well known as being good for treating spots with its antibacterial qualities but according to the Superdrug website, peppermint is also useful for treating skin disorders so it seemed a promising combination. If nothing else, I figured that my face would get a clean and fresh feeling from the product and that's a good place to start!

          BACKGROUND
          Let me give you some background information on the state of my skin before I started using the facial wash so that you can get a better idea of how well it worked. For the first time in months, I had horrid red lump-like spots across my chin area that were quite large and had been lingering for days. These were a pretty common occurrence before I started using the Body Shop product but had been cropping up less often since then. There were also a collection of small but fiery spots on my forehead, which had again been less common in recent months, and the odd small spot around my mouth which wasn't so uncommon.

          USING IT
          My first impression was that there is a strong bias towards the peppermint as that is the overriding smell. Given that I'm much more familiar with tea tree as a potential spot-fighting factor, I wasn't sure how well that was going to bode for clearing up my bad skin. It's very refreshing to use and my skin never fails to feel clean and fresh afterwards. There is a definite cooling tingle thanks to the peppermint and it's good for really waking me up when I use this in the morning. I expected the facial wash to make my skin feel dry and tight afterwards as this is what usually happens with wash-off products for me but this wasn't as bad as I'd anticipated. My skin did feel a little tight around five minutes after I used it for the first time but with no unsightly flakes of dry skin around my nose (which happens with most facial washes) and as long as I slap on a bit of moisturiser afterwards, my skin feels fine.

          Having used it for several days on the trot, it's a completely different story. The face wash that I was previously using was prone to creating dry, flaky patches around the sides of my nose but this face wash extends that to the whole of my nose and my forehead. I didn't envisage a completely flaky nose being part of the package and I now feel that I have to apply a good deal of good moisturiser to rectify things which on my oily skin is probably not the best thing to have to do and it's something that puts me off using it to be honest.

          THE RESULTS
          Now for all the all-important question: how is my skin looking now? With repeated use twice daily and extremely dry patches aside, my spots haven't cleared up but on the plus side, no new ones have cropped up and that's something positive to say.

          PRICE
          I was swayed by the 2 for £5 offer but under normal circumstances, a 160ml bottle costs £2.99.

          OVERALL VERDICT
          So, do I recommend this facial wash? I'm torn, to be honest. It has done a decent job of preventing new spots from coming to the fore but the fact that it's making my very oily skin very dry in certain areas isn't a plus point in my book. Flaky patches around the side of my nose are usually all that I have to complain about with facial washes so the whole of my nose being affected is a new one. For those of you with more sensitive skin than mine or who are prone to both spots and dry skin, I can imagine you having quite a few complaints about this facial wash if my experiences are anything to go by. I've had bad experiences with facial washes that contain harsh ingredients like salicyclic acid or benzyl peroxide but not usually with those that don't.
