I'm always on the look out for new brands to try, and when I was approached to try out some tea tree products from Australian Bodycare, I just couldn't say no!
I love tea tree, I use it on a daily basis on my skin to keep oil and blemishes at bay, so I didn't need to be reminded of its benefits. Perfect for oily, acne prone skin, the antiseptic properties of tea tree reduces redness and draws out all the badness from your skin, killing any bacteria from spreading,
The thing I was most interested in was the Tea Tree Deodorant by Australian Body Care, I pretty much only use roll on's or cream sticks on my under arms to keep they hydrated and moisturised, so was intrigued to see how the Tea Tree one would work.
I don't know about you, but the smell of tea tree reminds me of that horrible head lice shampoo your mum used on you when you caught nits at school, so I wasn't exactly looking forward to smelling like nit shampoo, but I didn't actually find this happened at all.
The roll on is exactly how you'd expect, with the tea tree smell, but this didn't linger throughout the day, which was perfect for me. I love how cooling this is on the under arms - you can even use it immediately after shaving with no stinging at all. In fact, it soothed my pits after a harsh shave!
I definitely gave this deodorant a serious test drive, Since getting this just over two weeks ago, I haven't used anything else and not once has it let me down. When I can be bothered, I'll head to the gym straight after work, and one day last week after doing a full 9 hours at the office, 1 hour at the gym and cooked my tea for 45 minutes, the other half thought I'd already had a shower because I wasn't letting off my typical smell after a workout. I kid you not, not a whiff of BO in sight, and it was a pretty intense workout!
Never been soo impressed by a deodorant in my life. The tea tree in works to actually neutralise the odour causing bacteria, rather than just cover the body odour with a floral scent.
The skin wash worked for me too, although I didn't enjoy using it as much as the deodorant, Like I said, the deodorant smell disappears almost instantly but the power stays behind, however, with the skin wash, if you use it on your body, the scent is just too much for me.
I have been using it regularly as I've had some red lumps and bump popping up on my shoulders, and it really has helped to reduce these. But the smell is just too overwhelming for me, so I wash myself again using another shower gel to get rid of the smell. Which is a shame. I will continue using it, because it is working on the blemishes, but I'm using a coconut one along side it too!
I'm soo happy I had the chance to try out these products from Australian Bodycare. I've not had the urge to head back to my old roll on yet either. Think I've found a new favorite!
