The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimizer Review

The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimizer Review

ISLM Writer: Hina

Hellooooo my lovelies,
Here I am with my review of The Body Shop Tea Tree pore minimizer. I simply adore this product.
It was during one of my random visits to The Body shop that I glanced upon this beauty. At first I was not sure on how to use the product, however the SA somehow convinced me it is worth the money and after using it for more than a year now, I must say, I am head over heels for this product.

I am so impressed by this product that I can skip my daily dose of BB cream but not this. It’s that one go to product I would carry with me in my handbag. It can be used on its own for a natural smooth finish and can also be doubled up as a base or primer prior to applying foundation/BB cream. It makes my skin glow. Just a little pore minimizer, topped with translucent powder, lip gloss and an eyeliner and you are all set to go! It works for me as a multi purpose product because it tightens, moisturises, hydrates, mattifies and primes the skin.

Look and Feel

The product is neither too thick, nor too runny, just a perfect gel like consistency and is pale yellow in colour. The formula is oil free in texture which blends smoothly into the skin. It smells of tea tree oil as it’s the main ingredient. This pore minimizer is available in only one shade as it is just like base to prep up your skin for further makeup.

 How To Use The Body Shop Tea Tree Pore Minimiser

It can be used every morning after the CTM routine, just take a small amount and dab it on clean and dry face after applying moisturizer and before foundation/BB cream. The formula blends easily and is quickly absorbed by the skin. So if you are like me who hates greasiness this is a must have.
As I have a combination skin, it works very well for me. It also works well for beauties with oily skin as it has a mattifying effect. However for beauties with dry skin it may make the skin drier due to its alcohol content. It makes pores appear reduced and skin looks fresh, pure and tightened. You can even apply it on pimples and blemishes and it does not irritate the skin.

Overall Rating


Will I Repurchase?

Yes! Yes! As it’s a multi purpose product I would not mind repurchasing and splurging on this cutie instead of spending money on different products. A big thumbs up from me.


  1. Sounds like a miraculous product! The thick balmy texture might work as a good makeup base as well :) Will get it ASAP.

Cover The Cover: Harper's Bazaar (India) March 2012

You all know that I love tweaking my blog here and there and making some changes, introducing newer features and well sometimes just hooking the blog onto some social networking site :) Well this time I am introducing a new feature that I promise will be really exciting for all beauty enthusiasts :) To start with this feature is called "Cover The Cover" where I shall be covering the cover pages of our favorite beauty and fashion magazines in terms of make-up. There are times when a certain look on a celeb or a fashion mag just gets to us. Well rather than just mulling over such looks I have decided to give life to such looks (on me) and well do a kind of a faux photo shoot ;) What say? Doesn't it sound like fun? What more? You are all invited to submit your looks with a reference to which magazine and edition you are covering and I'll post it here :)

Today's look is inspired by my latest fav mag Harper's Bazaar. The March edition of Harper's Bazaar is a …

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :)

Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;)

Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal ski…

REVIEW & LOTD: Faces Long Wear Pencil in Navy Blue

While doing the "Meet The Bloggers" feature every Saturday, I have realised (and I am sure that you all have too) that Faces is fast becoming a very popular brand amongst us especially the Faces Long Wear pencils. So much so that a lot of people prefer Faces Long Wear pencils to even Colorbar I-Glides and that ladies and gentlemen is quite a feat for a newly launched brand. So anyways, I got myself a "Navy Blue" from this range and I must say that I am very happy with it. This is my second pencil from Faces after "Turquoise Blue" and well it hasn't failed me either.
This particular shade is a beautiful deep blue that looks stunning on the eye lids.
