Tea tree is one of my favorite ingredient for skin as they are very useful to combat acne. What I used to do is using a few drops of tea tree oil to apply all over my face to maintain acne-free skin. This step is vital for me and I was introduced to try Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Daily Face Wash to start the battle with acne at the very start of my skincare regime.

This face wash comes in a pump bottle and this ain’t your typical cleanser pump, it is a mousse pump. For as long as I have been using this face wash, I have yet to experience any difficulty. Instead, it is very convenient and easy to dispense.
Here is a pump of the face wash, mousse textured, fluffy and bubbly. I use about one and a half or two pumps to cleanse my skin. This is great when water rationing happens where the mousse texture made the cleanser ready to be use anytime rather than the typical face wash where you need to lather to foam before cleansing. Rinsing off is much easier too. It has a decent tea tree scent which I find it refreshing.
I have used the face wash for a month and it did improve my skin here and there. At the same time, I’m still breaking out elsewhere on my face. On week 1-2, I’m breaking out on forehead and eye area, by week 3 they are healed and I started breaking out on the nose and chin area. Those breakouts on the chin area are some stubborn acne.
This is a comparison of before and after using the face wash for a month. It did helped me to clear my skin but it did not completely vanish them. It seems my upper face did clear up very well and hopefully it will clear out my lower face gradually.
Tea tree never fail to impress me because they are natural and effective. However, this face wash did not completely clear my skin within a month. In fact, I have gotten breakouts here and there too. I wouldn’t want to blame entirely on the face wash, it could be because of my lifestyle. There are a couple of times I went to bed late and had sinful meals during the weekends. Upon using this face wash, I do realise that the blackheads on my skin is getting lesser. I only have slight skin sensitivity but I did experience any irritation throughout my usage.
