How to Use
Rated 4.23 out of 5 stars
This is one serious toner! I really love it and how it has helped my oily, acne prone skin. I have been using this toner for about 3 weeks now and really do see a difference in my skin, less acne and not so oily. Fair warning though, the smell of this Tea Tree Oil toner is...well pungent and it does have this "heating" effect on my face. The first time I used it I was slightly startled but after the heat faded that was it there were no ill effects to my skin. I use this after washing and before I use the Tea Tree Oil lotions(I have both day and night creams of their products). Works fantastic for me!
I was looking for something more gentle for my late-20s acne than the harsh salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide toners I could get away with in my teens, so I turned to something with tea tree oil. The Body Shop's Tea Tree "Skin Clearing" toner got good reviews, but after six months using it, I can say it doesn't deliver on its "skin clearing" promises. It doesn't work to prevent blemishes w/ daily use or fight ones that are already popping up. The rest of my skin is also actually bumpier overall.
It smells like day three of a ten-day juice cleanse, when you're really hating life and know you've got a week of kale smoothies left to go.
And the "shake to activate" business is really annoying. I don't think that advisory was on the product description when I bought the toner back in January; I actually thought the product had settled or something during shipping, only to find out I had to shake it vigorously for 10 seconds every time I used it.
I will say my skin *feels* toned when I use it after cleansing, but a drugstore brand toner does the same thing for much cheaper and probably won't make my skin worse.

I have oily skin, and am a person of color. This toner was just too drying for me. In my routine I use an essence and moisturizer, but neither were able to combat the drying that occurred later in the day. May work for some however.

Took me forever to find something great to clear my acne on my face! I used this and the first three days I was golden and it kept up ever since, it's been 3.5 months now! I can't tell you how thankful I am!

So, I struggle with big pores and oily skin this paired with the face wash and I noticed a difference immediately! will definitly be making this my new go to toner

I use this right after I wash my face on days where my skin is a bit oily. I have sensitive combination skin and it clears up the extra oils quite well. I would not recommend it on days when your skin is dry though, because it will sting a bit, kind of like rubbing alcohol/ hand sanitizer on dry skin. Other than that, it has helped calm down a lot of redness and breakouts that I've been having for a few months.

Bought this excited to help my acne... and ended up making it WORSE... after putting on my face my skin started to burn and turned super red.. next day my face was covered w new pimples . My skin is currently trying to get back to normal .. do NOT buy this if you have super sensitive skin!!
Raquel from Modesto, ca
I bought this based on the positive reviews but i didn't like it. Feels weird not clean after applied.
Chloe from Tennessee
i foolishly didn't read the ingredients before purchasing & boy do i regret it! the second ingredient is alcohol (BAD!!) and irritates my skin the second i put it on. i have very sensitive skin & rosacea so this is certainly not for me. keep in mind that the toning stage of your skincare routine is for HYDRATING, so if your toner has alcohol in it... well good luck!

I bought this item in a kit with the face wash, toner and tea tree oil. To be honest, I did not have high hopes since I have tried other tea tree oils before. I have mild but persistent adult acne and I also recently aquired a small fungal skin infection on my chest (I know ewwwwww but trust me it happens to the best of us). This product not only cleared up my acne but also cleared up the fungal infection. My skin looks very clear and I could not be more pleased. I recently purchased $500 in Sk ii products that claimed to clear acne but for real this tea tree set worked 90% better at a fraction of the cost. I'm very happy I picked this up last minute.
I left this review on the toner because this is the one that I love the most. It does not burn or sting and it smells really light. My skin feels so clean after I use the toner. I use it with a large cotton round pad on my face, neck and chest. I have been using this twice a day for 5 days and I see a HUGE improvement.

Maddie from Fort Lauderdale, FL
I use this product every night before bed, and it does burn a little, but is tolerable and does great things for my redness and acne.
Sammie Ali from California
This toner is REALLY SUPER irritating & DRYING. My whole face burns & stings after I use this. Also leaves dry patches by my chin :( I've bought the whole set- "skin clearing" wash & toner, anti imperfection daily solution (I actually love this), & the mattifying lotion, which is drying & mattifying for sure. No moisturization AT ALL. Waste of money I think. I've had acne for 10 years & used to use tea tree oil, buuut this ain't doing it

I use tea tree oil for a lot so I thought this would be a great idea. Nope. I have oily skin and this made me even oilier. I returned it.

It stung/burned mostly under my jaw and did cause some blistering on my face. I stopped using and returned.

I love the feeling of tea tree oil on my skin. The scent is also very calming to me. I've dealt with acne for 10 years and recently took myself off my prescription acne medications so I've been looking for good OTC products to combat my acne. This brand has been really surprising to me as it's very affordable and yields great results! I use the toner twice a day in conjunction with the overnight imperfection mask and can tell my acne dries up much quicker and allows me to easily extract the pimples, leaving me with clearer skin. Definitely worth a try!
Ashley from Michigan
I've been using this toner less than a week it's clearing up small breakouts I had.
Tonia from Alaska
I recommend you buy it if nothing worked with your skin this clears without irritation on your skin
ap from California
I've been using this product for years and hardly ever broke out. However I recently ran out and noticed my skin getting broken out. Definitely going back to this to get it back to normal!
Jesi from FL
Once I get the corn starch mixed in fully, I use it after my shower at night.. I love that it doesn't have a harsh smell and it has REALLY helped calm the redness of my acne and help it heal faster.
Ary from Kapolei, HI
Absolute love this product, I use twice a day with a cotton pad & it keeps my face clear from any break outs
Rim from Maryland
definitely one of my favorite toners. Does not dry out my skin and helps fade acne scars
