Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil recently launched a new and effective skincare range that works to clear acne prone skin in just three easy steps: cleanse, tone and hydrate.
I like that the Thursday Plantation Tea Tree acne range is free of Benzoyl Peroxide, and super gentle on young skin. Its key ingredient is superior quality tea tree oil –a natural ingredient with incredible anti-bacterial powers. Each product in the range is specifically formulated to help target, clear and prevent spots and blemishes.
The range is perfect for teens and adults alike who want a natural solution to treat acne. Native to Australia, Tea Tree oil is a natural antiseptic that is distilled from specially selected Melaleuca alternifolia leaves.
I asked my 14-year-old daughter, Miyo, to give the range a try and report back.
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Foaming Face Wash (R209.95) – BUY
Miyo LOVES a mousse foaming wash, so was excited to try this one that’s soap free and contains calming chamomile to soothe skin redness. She did say that the first few times she used it, she found it a bit drying, but after about a week her skin seemed to acclimate.
This naturally derived cleanser uses the antibacterial power of Tea Tree to gently remove excess sebum and dirt without stripping the skin of its natural oils and is ideal for those with combo/oily skin types. I also like that this formula is free of synthetic fragrance, animal derived ingredients (Miyo is a Vegan), parabens, Sodium Laureth/ Laurel sulfate (foaming agent that dries the skin) and any synthetic colours.
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Tone (R205.95) BUY
Miyo had never used a toner before, and I had to explain to her that this one would assist in removing impurities while improving the look of her pores. Along with tea tree oil, the formula contains witch hazel – a natural astringent – that is responsible for tightening pores, soothing aloe vera and calming lavender.
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Face Cream (R215.95) BUY
This lightweight moisturiser rehydrates the skin with antibacterial tea tree and hydrating Rosehip, macadamia oil, shea Butter and vitamin E. It doesn’t clog pores and absorbs very quickly leaving no oily residue. When it comes to moisturisers for Miyo, I always keep an eye out for those labelled non-comedogenic as this means it won’t clog the pores.
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Blemish Gel (R219.95) BUY
Miyo uses this on her spots, blackheads & whiteheads to dry them out. What she likes most is that this is an invisible (colourless) gel that penetrates the skin in seconds and works really quickly to blitz pimples. Even the hubby has been using it as a spot treatment.
While I certainly wouldn’t describe Miyo as having acne, like most teens, she does battle with breakouts and blackheads.
Miyo has been using the range for close on three weeks now and just two days ago remarked how her skin looked so good saying, “it looks like I’ve got an Instagram filter on my skin it’s so smooth and clear”.
When I asked Miyo if she would recommend this range to her friends battling with spots and acne, she said yes because of the following points:
It works, and you can see an improvement in your skin quickly
The range is Vegan (except for the Lip Guard that contains beeswax)
It has a fresh, natural smell
