If you do want to combat your acne and have been on the hunt for a miracle treatment to no avail, one skin positivity blogger believes she’s found it.
Kadeeja Sel Khan, a skin positivity blogger from the UK, is candid about her acne struggles over on Instagram and regularly shares her skincare regimes with her followers.
Kadeeja recently shared a striking before-and-after photo of her acne treatment progress on Instagram – and her followers took to the comments section in their droves to grill her on the products she used.
Kadeeja, who runs the Instagram account EmeraldxBeauty, told Cosmo that one of the star products for clearing up her acne was The Body Shop’s Tea Tree Cleanser. At just £6.50, it’s ideal for beauty buffs on a budget.
According to the product’s description, the Tea Tree Skin Clearing Foaming Cleanser is an instantly foaming daily facial wash, formulated to be gentle on blemished skin. Enriched with Community Trade tea tree oil, it promises to cleanse without over drying, leaving oily skin feeling fresh and matte.
Kadeeja isn’t alone in her praise for the product; there’s a plethora of positive reviews on The Body Shop’s page.
“I never ever write reviews, but the tea tree range is incredible,” wrote one impressed user. “I have tried every brand going to try and get clear, brighter skin (all the expensive brands, that cost me a fortune!!) I read the review on this and thought I’d give it a try, although I believed it wouldn’t work. Whilst I don’t have ‘bad skin’, I do get break outs, my skin gets oily, I get random big spots and I have lots of discolouration or sun damage and slight melasma. I bought a gift set which included the foam wash, a toner and a matt cream, I’ve used it every day and night for over 6 months now and my skin is better than ever, every morning I wake up and it’s clear, I don’t feel the need to wear makeup as I don’t have any patches to cover up, my skin tone has evened out. I am so pleased!! I recently bought the night cream and night mask which I have added to my routine and again I’m not disappointed!! Love this product.”
Another shopper added: “I’m VERY pleased with the results it has given me. It’s just really uplifted me and I now can go out confidently bare faced!”.
