Superdrug tea tree and peppermint moisturiser
I bought this from Superdrug, and it is also available online at www.superdrug.co.uk. It costs £2.99 so not an expensive moisturiser.
This is advertised as a light, soothing, non-greasy moisturiser which is enriched with moisturising ingredients Pro-vitamin B5 and Aloe Vera. It is apparently easily absorbed into the skin, and the moisturiser is ideal for use on oily or spot prone skin. I don't get a lot of spots but recently my skin has been feeling a bit more oily, and I decided it did need a bit of drying out.
Tea Tree oil originates from Australia and is a natural antibacterial agent known for its antiseptic healing properties. Tea tree is recommended as the natural solution for everyday skin problems. Peppermint oil is renowned for its therapeutic effect on skin disorders and its cooling sensation.
With all of these ingredients, this should be good for my skin.
The moisturiser comes packaged in a tube with the usual green Body shop design and all of the information and ingredients on the back of the tube.
The product itself is dispensed by unscrewing the lid (obviously) and giving the tube a little squeeze. The moisturiser comes out easily and is a fairly thin white cream with a distinctive tea tree oil smell. I like the smell of tea tree oil but its one to avoid if it's not to your liking. It applies easily to the skin and isn't at all oily or greasy which is good since its for oily skin. When applying it, although it made my skin feel very fresh and clean, there was a very slight tightening of my skin and I didn't feel as though it was really being absorbed by my skin, but was rather sorting out the surface problems instead of doing some deep down moisturising.
The moisturiser does make my skin feel and smell fresh and clean and I certainly felt that my pores were tightened but without any nasty stinging sensation. However, although I felt that my skin has been slightly more oily, I think this is really more suited to younger skin which needs less moisture. I knew when I opened the product that it was not as creamy as my normal moisturiser but still persevered for a while before handing it over to teenage son.
It's a good quality moisturiser which can help to sort out skin problems but just not creamy enough for me.
Recommended for younger skin
