The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil (20ml)

If you read my previous post here, you would have known that I’m in love with this product and it is my Holy Grail. However, due to its high price ($19.90 for 10ml and $34.90 for 20ml), I have been trying out several products hoping to find a cheaper alternative, but nothing is quite as good as this magical product.

Packaging:

The tea tree oil comes in this beautiful shade of green, which is very aesthetically pleasing. The nozzle might be annoying to a few people, I struggled with it until today to dispense the right amount of product.

Texture:

The oil is not very oily, instead quite runny, just a bit denser than water.

Smell:

This oil carry this strong tea tree smell. I absolutely love it. It gives me a very calming sensation to it.

Verdict:

This product is my Holy Grail. For further details, check out my previous post

Rating: 5/5

  1. This item should be banned (may cause irritation)
  2. This item is not doing its job
  3. Meh! A passable product
  4. Pretty good! Will consider repurchase
  5. I love this and cannot live without it

Repurchase?

Definitely yes. I can’t live without it.

Where to get it?

You can find the product here: THE BODY SHOP TEA TREE OIL

 

A’pieu Nonco Tea Tree Oil (10ml)

A’pieu is a Korean brand that is quite famous for their cushion line that featured Doraemon and a few other makeup items. I was curious the see that they do carry a Nonco Tea Tree Line that targeting people with acne-prone skin. Hence I was excited to try this out, and it was super cheap, $6.90 for 10ml, which is less than half price of the Body Shop Tea Tree Oil.

Claims:

“Containing pure herbal extracts from nature, Nonco series make your skin clear
and healthy while preventing skin problems.”

A’pieu Nonco Tea Tree Oil

Packaging:

The tea tree oil comes in a plastic bottle in blue and white. I like the color, but the bottle feels a little bit cheap. The bottle has a dropper cap. I must say it helps dispensing product much much easier, compared to the Body Shop tea tree oil.

Texture:

The oil is the most oily out of the 3 products that I tried. It can take a while to absorb and you need to tap it in for quite sometimes.

Smell:

This oil carry this plastic smell, the only way I can describe it is cheap lipstick smell. Not very sure on how to describe this smell any better but I do not like it.

Verdict:

This product is pretty passable. Because it is so sticky with a funny smell, and no cooling sensation, I feel like it does nothing to my skin. No dramatic effects on cooling down and shrinking size of my pimples, like the other 2 tea tree oil. It does not break me out though.

Rating: 3/5

  1. This item should be banned (may cause irritation)
  2. This item is not doing its job
  3. Meh! A passable product
  4. Pretty good! Will consider repurchase
  5. I love this and cannot live without it

Repurchase?

I do not see why I should. It is definitely cheap. But I would not pay $6.90 for some oil that do nothing to help my breakout.

Where to get it?

I bought this on Q0010: A’PIEU NONCO TEA TREE OIL

or you can also buy this from RoseRoseShop: A’PIEU NONCO TEA TREE OIL – RRS

 

Skinのpure Tea Tree Oil (10ml)

This is another product that I bought to replace my current TBS Tea Tree Oil. It was sold at $10.90 for 10ml, which is not so bad, half price of TBS one. I think this is a pretty decent product.

Claims:

“Contains 15% pure tea tree oil. Multipurpose: Acne Rescue, Anti-bacteria, Antiseptic, Aids in Healing”

Packaging:

The tea tree oil comes a green glass bottle. Same as The Body Shop, the nozzle might be annoying to a few people, I struggled with it until today to dispense the right amount of product.

Texture:

The oil is very similar to TBS, not very oily, instead quite runny, just a bit denser than water.

Smell:

This oil carry a less strong tea tree smell compared to The Body Shop. But this is very similar.

Verdict:

This product meets my expectation in finding a cheaper dupe for The Body Shop. Works well in calming my angry breakout and shrinking the size of my pimple. Very happy with this product. This does not heal as fast, but already quite effective.

Rating: 4/5

  1. This item should be banned (may cause irritation)
  2. This item is not doing its job
  3. Meh! A passable product
  4. Pretty good! Will consider repurchase
  5. I love this and cannot live without it

Repurchase?

I will. When I run out of The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil and need a more wallet-friendly option.

Where to get it?

I bought this on Q0010: SKINPURE TEA TREE OIL

 

So there you have it, my review of the 3 tea tree oil that I tried. The most value for money will be Skinpure, but if you can splurge, just go for The Body Shop, because I doubt anything can beat that product in term of effectiveness.

Have you tried any tea tree oil products? Do you find it effective? Do let me know in the comment and we can discuss more 🙂

Disclaimer: I bought all of these items by myself, unless stated otherwise, and I am not paid in any way to give my feedback. This is my honest opinions for the products.
