      For clearer skin

      Anyone who reads my reviews regularly will know that I have a horrible oily T Zone and I am forever looking for products that will help to eradicate it as this is where I get most of my spots – it has been like this since I was a teenager and now I am well into my thirties it is no better.

      It was for this reason that I decided to buy a tube (75ml) of T Zone Skin Clearing Face Moisturiser. I got my tube from Home Bargains at the great little price of only 99p.

      I bought this as it says it contains Tea tree oil which I Love and also it contains no parabens and is antibacterial and has a long shelf life of a year.

      I have been using this product now for almost a year and I really do recommend it. It is not expensive and it works very well for me personally. For anyone who may be interested, the complete list of ingredients is:

      Aqua, Paraffinum Liquidum, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Polyglyceryl-3 Dicitrate/Stearate, Phenaxyethanol, Xanthan Gum, Melaleuca Alternifolia ( Tea Tree ) Leaf Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDT, limonene.

      I use this as a facial moisturiser and I pay particular attention to the sides of my nose and my forehead and chin – those annoying areas that seem to attract grease and oil for me. This cream really does manage to moisturise my face without blocking my pores and the smell is great – it is really quite strong at first until you start to get used to it. It smells fresh and clean with a strong hit of tea tree oil – lovely.

      My skin and in particular my T zone area has definitely improved since I have started to use this cream and for this reason I will continue to go on using it for some tome to come. It has helped my oily areas no end but it is not too heavy and yet seems to moisturise well.

      Great stuff and highly recommended.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Decent face cream to use if you have no specific requirements

      The first time I used face care products that contained tea tree oil was when I was a teenager and had a slight obsession with The Body Shop, and I frequently bought their Tea tree facial wash as it was easy to use and my skin was in great condition, but had occasional spots, and this product did the job. Second time I used tea tree containing products was using Austrailian Bodycare bodywash and bodycream in my twenties because I found that using the neat oil worked well on a number of different things e.g zapping spots, freshening the inside of trainers etc. Now I have used this particular product, bought from a local Home Bargain store, for 99p for a 75ml tube and Im now in my thirties.



      Why did I buy this?

      I liked the idea of the moisturiser having antibacterial properties to it but also on packaging claims to provide hydration. I also love the smell of tea tree oil and know what a great ingredient it is. Not the type of face cream I currently have or have had for years, but wanted to see if it would be effective and add something new to my skincare routine.



      How is it packaged?

      It comes in a plastic 75ml tube with a lid that screws on/off to open/close.The main colour of packaging is a green colour. The ' T zone ' logo is at the top, the product name Skin Clearing Face Moisturiser directly underneath along with a mention of tea tree and eucalyptus being ingredients. It states product is naturally antibacterial so helps get rid of spots plus moisturises.

      On the back it tells you what it does, how to use, ingredients list, its free from parabens and fragrance and once opened has a 12 month shelf life.



      What is it supposed to do?

      Fights existing blemishes but also helps to prevent new ones from forming. Is supposed to soothe the skin, moisturise without blocking pores and refresh and smooth skin.



      Ingredients

      Aqua, Paraffinum Liquidum, Cetearyl Alcohol, Glycerin, Polyglyceryl-3 Dicitrate/Stearate, Phenaxyethanol, Xanthan Gum, Melaleuca Alternifolia ( Tea Tree ) Leaf Oil, Tocopheryl Acetate, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDT, limonene.



      How to use

      Apply onto clean skin. Use daily.



      So what do I think?

      I thought the texture was what you would expect from a lotion rather than a cream-not too thick but had some density to it, but very fluid and quite light weight. White in colour.

      Very easy to apply. Since the texture wasn't very thick I used alittle more than probably what I should have, purely for added moisturising effect. It did take alittle time to work into the skin, but when it did it left my skin feeling and looking quite matt, non greasy and had completely disappeared. Skin didn't feel or appear dry, but I did feel it should have been more hydrating and given my skin a softer feel and look to it.

      Smell was alittle on the medicinal side due to the tea tree oil which I don't mind. What I didn't smell was much eucalyptus, and I felt overall the smell should have been sharper and much more cleaner. There was something about it that made it smell alittle ' off ' or old, just not fresh enough. What would have been nice is either a more natural and slighter stronger smell of the tea tree and eucaluptus, or throw in something else that would compliment it such as lavender or lemon.

      Overall it's a moisturiser that is easy to use and comes in a decent 75ml size, but I haven't seen any real changes to my skin.



      Would I buy this again-no. The smell would need to smell more natural, the cream itself would need to provide more hydration and the effect of the cream would need to be at least more visible in regards to touch, if not look. The fact it sinks into the skin and then makes the skin feel and look matt I can imagine would be good for someone who puts on make up straight after, but I like a more dewy glowing look. Considering how much this cost, it's a decent moisturiser that would suit a teenager or someone with very basic skincare needs down to the ground, if they aren't looking for something too specific and have decent skin. I would need something with a bit more gusto to its action.
