Advantages: Has multi uses is very soothing and works well over night.
Disadvantages: Takes a little while to sink into the skin.
Lanes is a company that has been around for a long time, they do some really good health supplements- vitamins, herbs, creams etc.
Aswell as enjoying their products I Love the fact they have kept their "Old Fashioned" packaging, this Tea Tree & Witch Hazel cream looks like it should be tucked away in your Grandma's cupboard, from days gone by.
It's fairly plain but striking in a white 28g tube with green writing and has a simple picture of a green and brown tree on it, red also features in the name. Its housed in a box with the same layout.

I Love the smell of this cream, its a strong smell as you can probably imagine after seeing the ingredients, but its a clean, soothing smell.
We as a family have always found it really good and always have some in the house, we find it very good for atheletes foot instead of the mega expensive products designed especially for it but usually containing the same ingredients virtually.
I have heard it's also very good for bites, but I personally haven't tried it on any yet.
Its not a thick consistency its almost a cross between a cream and a lotion and the one complaint could be it doesn't sink into the skin quickly, it sits on top, very good to use at night before you go to bed.
Its usually approx £2.75 but I can buy it for £1.99 in Quality Save, it's often found in health food shops and certain chemists.
It definately gets my vote and I wouldn't be without it.
Why don't you give it a try?
Summary: Cheap buy, multi use, quick results.
