My (Body Shop) Dynamic Duo

Oh boy.. How I miss this thing so much.. Haven't had the time to blog for a couple of weeks. Blame it on work and the much needed time to sleep.. :)

Just this morning, my mom decided to go over my much beloved grandma's things. My lola passed away more than a year ago, and today is just the day we mustered the "strength" to once again touch her clothes and smell her perfume.. *Sigh*

Anywhooooo.. Mommy said if there's someone her jewelries had to be given to, that'll probably be me. (Proud smile). When my grandma was still alive, we'd always talk about make-up and fashion and how she'd put up with those when she was still young. She even allowed me to practice on her on how to put make-up on matured skin when I volunteered to be one of the so-called MUA's on my ate's wedding day. And now, I'm just so pleased to have what my lola had been keeping for the longest time.

** The stars up there are far more brilliant than these, Mamang. I bet you're enjoying them as much as I can imagine. I miss you so much, you know that. And I love you with all my heart. **

Today, I wanna share with you my Dynamic Duo. :)


The Body Shop Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion and Tea Tree Oil. I admit I have a couple of moisturizers, but these duo are the ones I reach out every time of the month my skin suffers from hormonal breakouts due to menstrual cycle related whatsoevers. I claim them highly effective, as they ease out small, red bumps and irregular texture my skin develops during "Red Alert Days".

Tea Tree Oil - I use this to clear out small pimple spots and minor blemishes, applying it directly on them after washing the face.

Tea Tree Blemish Fade Night Lotion - Used as an over-all moisturizer after using Tea Tree Oil. Avoiding the eye area is a must! I've tried spreading this on to the eye area the first time I used this and man, was it so burning, I had to cool it down with tissue wipes.

I never had irritations with these and the lotion does moisturize well, I must say. And funny to note for me these smell like freshly cut grass.. haha. I'm definitely replenishing as my dynamic duo's nearly running out. These are some essentials I'll always have around.

Have a lovely weekend, my friends! Thanks for dropping by.. :)


  1. I've been meaning to try the Tea Tree Oil but have't gotten around to buying one. Now the lotion caught my interest. Does it do something about the oilies whenever you use it? Thanks! :)

  2. Hi Pammy!! :) I didn't notice any change in my skin in terms of oiliness. I've read that to some, this Night Lotion made their skin oil up than usual, and to others, it surprisingly dried up their oiliness..

    But for me, my combination skin remained as is.. :) hehe.. I still had to blot sometimes though out the day, but good thing is that it didn't aggravate my pores to produce more sebum..

    Thanks for reading! :)

  3. It's good that you've found something that works great for your skin during that time of the month. Tea tree oil works wonderfully. I'm using my second bottle of the tea tree water toner from LUSH and recently bought some tea tree oil too.

  4. @Witoxicity: oohhhh.. I wanna try that one from Lush too.. :) :) I believe that in some cases, nothing really beats what nature can give us..
