Really loved itby Oindrila Ghoshal, on 3 July 2012
Tea tree oil is widely used in skin care products due to its curative and healing properties. It is especially effective in solving acne problems. It has antiseptic, antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. It also helps in case of certain skin infections and is even added to shampoos as it can get rid of dandruff and an itchy scalp. There are few face washes in the market that contain tea tree oil. The Fabindia Tea Tree Face Wash is one such product that is specially formulated for oily skin.

My Experience with the product:
My skin is really very oily. A few years ago I had a severe bout of acne but with the help of some skincare products and a proper diet minus junk food, I could control that. However, I still see one or two pimples popping up from time to time. Considering the fact that tea tree oil can remove blemishes, I thought of giving this face wash a try. This face wash also has other ingredients like salicylic acid and turmeric that are effective against acne. This face wash does not make my skin feel dry or stretched but at the same time, it effectively removes the oil, dirt and grime from my face. It washes off makeup too. I only need a pea-sized amount for my entire face. The lather is really nice. After washing the face with this, I am left behind with a squeaky clean feel. The product is very gentle and does not sting or irritate the skin. In fact, my skin feels supple and smooth with continuous usage of this face wash. The consistency, however, is a bit runny and so you have to be careful when taking it out from the tube. The packaging is convenient with a click to open cap. It is a gel based face wash, the gel being of a very light transparent greenish color. It smells heavily of tea tree oil and I do not have an issue with that. This face wash has brought about a remarkable improvement in my skin texture and cleared up my face. I have noticed lightening of the blemishes too. I follow up the cleansing with the toner from the same range.
