The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion: excellent product for mild teenage acne

Pros:Works quickly and effectively to heal and prevent mild acne

Cons:strong scent

The Bottom Line: If you've tried acne products with benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid without great results, give this a try. Not harsh, but yet very effective.


When my teenage boy started to get some mild acne earlier this year, I purchased a couple of drugstore products containing benzoyl peroxide and salicylic acid. While both provided some results, he wasn't too pleased with either of them. As one last effort before calling a dermatologist, I got him The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion.  He's been very happy with the results and we've avoided a trip to the doctor's office.

Product Details


Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion comes in a 1-ounce bottle with pump dispenser and is priced at $18. It is designed for blemished skin, to not only help treat existing pimples but help prevent future ones.

The key ingredient is, of course, tea tree oil. The Body Shop has been using this ingredient in their acne products for quite some time, but now other companies are starting to take note as it is a less harsh anti-bacterial ingredient than benzoyl peroxide, which often results in dry, flakey skin.  (Salicylic acid works a bit differently as it is an exfolliant and encourages the rapid turnover of skin cells that can clog pores).

In addition, Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion contains Tamanu oil  to help sooth and calm skin, reducing the chances of redness and irritation.

Instructions call for this lotion to be applied at night while sleeping. But, of course, with boys, getting them to remember to do this can be difficult. So he has used it during the day if he notices any pimples in the morning. It doesn't seem to make any difference. I'm just happy that he uses it!

The lotion itself is creamy, somewhat like a light moisturizer. It doesn't feel like medicine. However, it does have that strong tea tree scent, which is medicinal, almost like a combinination of lemon and menthol.

Overall results

My son was very impressed from the first day he used this. His acne is not bad, pretty much confined to his forehead and sometimes at the corner of his nose. As a mother, I felt a large part of the problem was the long hair hanging over his face. Dirty hair on the face means bacteria on the skin, and combined with teenage hormones and increased oil production, you've got acne. So an anti-bacterial product like this sounded like the perfect approach. If he uses this on a regular basis, his pimples heal quickly and are pretty small. He's happy that his skin doesn't get irritated and red. Another benefit is the improvement of some minor acne scars. He's got an olive skin tone and acne scars show up easily. Since using this Body Shop product, they've started to fade.

I've even used Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion a few times when I've felt a pimple coming on. Yeah, I may be in my 40's but I'll probably die with a zit on my face. I was impressed with how it shrunk the zit quickly and prevented it from turning into something ugly.

My one concern when I got this for him is that the scent would be a turn-off. But he actually says he likes it, so I count myself fortunate.

Overall rating

This one gets 5 stars from me and my son. It works very well and very quickly. I'm not saying it's the Holy Grail for all teenage acne as some kids really do need heavier duty products that only a doctor can prescribe. But for mild cases, I think Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion is an excellent choice.
