The Body Shop Haul

When I first saw the Tea Tree Blotting Tissues at The Body Shop, I thought it was weird to have tea tree oil on a tissue that was meant to remove excess oil in the first place. Was I wrong! As I have a very oily face, I use blotting paper - one sheet a day. This is a great blotting paper and is now a staple in my handbag. The sheets are slightly smaller than usual and have a green tint. They are not the rubbery-looking ones. These are transparent and matte. They work very well and I need only one side to mop up my whole face. This packet contains 65 sheets.
I also bought a Tea Tree Blemish Gel. You're supposed to apply the gel directly to blemishes. As I have a couple of zits, I thought I would give it a try. It hasn't caused more breakouts, but the zits are still there.
I love the Grapeseed Glossing Serum. It works well at reducing frizz and my hair doesn't feel greasy, but is shinier.

Also picked up a couple of soaps - moringa and olive. I've heard you can make your own shampoo with olive soap, so you can guess that I'm going to be experimenting soon. If it explodes on the stove, remember it was all in the cause of beauty.
Last up is Ice Blue Shampoo. It contains SLS :( The menthol-y smell is a bit strong, so I haven't used it yet. I think this can be my new clarifying shampoo when there is too much product build-up.
