Product Review; Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Facial Toner and Exfoliating Scrub From Boots.

With temperatures spiking and life happening, i had an insane breakout on the right side of my neck. I sort help at my local drug store but everyone thought it was because of the sudden temperature change or my extensions (braids at that time).

I walked through the skincare aisle at Boots Baker Str and found these two products produced by Boots. They both have Tea Tree and Witch Hazel oils in them, nature’s ‘acne-zappers’.

Tea tree oil comes from the leaves of a tree that grows in Australia. Australians have long used tea tree oil to fight skin infections, and lately this herbal remedy has gotten a reputation for combating acne.

Witch hazel is a topical astringent derived from the bark and leaves of Hamamelis virginiana, the common or North American witch-hazel shrub.  Native Americans have long recognized the medicinal properties of witch hazel and used a decoction of the boiled plant parts to treat skin irritations and tumors.  Nowadays this popular herbal remedy is recognized world-wide as a natural cleanser and toner, but witch hazel has many more uses than simply to clarify skin and shrink pores.

I used both on my face, neck and shoulder twice a day after a bath. This i did for two weeks and realized my skin was drying out without any effect on the acne. Yikes!!!

I reduced the use of the exfoliating scrub to once a week and the toner to once in two days. With this new regimen; my face didn’t feel as dry,my skin tone started to even out, the acne and spot gradually reduced, and my face looked brighter overall.
I’ve been using both for a month plus now and they’ve been worth the money; less than £12. I definitely will recommend this if you have breakouts that you want to get rid of or you desire a smoother even toned face. My only advice will be to not use daily as it might dry-out your skin especially if you have dry skin naturally.
