The Ordinary Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% and The Body Shop Tea Tree Night Lotion
I feel like it takes a lot to make me fall so hard for a product that is targeted towards breakouts.
There are so many products on the market all promising to ‘clear our skin’ that it can definitely be overwhelming and frustrating. About 3 months ago I experienced the biggest hormonal breakout across my cheeks and jawline that I knew there was only going to be 2 main products to help me bring it under control and prevent the inflamed pigmentation from scarring.
In order of use, the Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1% from The Ordinary is truly an all-around, skin fixing, magic in a bottle potion! Niacinamide is known for its properties in regulating oil production and aiding as an anti-inflammatory against the irritation. Its visibly done wonders at shrinking the size of the breakouts and not to mention for the hyperpigmentation that’s been left behind too. Factoring in the reasonable price point I really cannot fault this product.
The Tea Tree Night lotion from The Body Shop is another unsung hero, doesn’t have half the hype it deserves considering I’ve been thrilled with it for years! If I remember correctly it all began in 2014 when I bought it to make up a 3 for 2 deal whilst in store and to this day it continues to be a constant in my stash. The super light lotion is perfect on top of any serums and under oils at night, some days I’ve worn it in the mornings and it’s been completely fine under makeup. There is quite a heavy scent initially but quickly disappears as the product sinks in. Considering it’s a lotion I never thought it would be potent enough to shift my scarring but it is brilliant! My only qualm is that it doesn’t come in a bigger size!
This is the perfect duo that I can’t recommend enough, they will be in my skincare collection forever!
