Review: Bodyshop Anti-Imperfection Tea Tree Night Mask – Acne Prone Skin ESSENTIAL

Hey, beautiful people! Today, I am sharing a review of one of my absolute essential products: Bodyshop Anti-Imperfection Tea Tree Night Mask. I know, you heard “Bodyshop” and “Tea Tree” and were already sold. Get bloody excited, my friends, because this one’s a game changer.

I tend to wait until my skincare products are empty or being repurchased to review them, because that generally gives me enough time to decide if I actually like them. (Which is a bloody good practice, because if I’d have reviewed ProActiv after the first week I would have loved it – but after the second week it literally destroyed my face.)

Well, my Bodyshop Tea Tree night mask has literally hit the pan – so what better time to review it than now?

Bodyshop Anti-Imperfection Tea Tree Night Mask Overall Review

Let’s just get this out of the way: I love this shit. It’s amazing. 5*s.

I’d consider this to be one of my absolute essentials, on par with Lush Magnaminty (which is one of my all time favourite masks!). It feels light and refreshing on your skin, but has the tingly coolness of tea tree so that you can feel it working.

The Product Claims:

Wake up to clearer-looking skin! Our fresh and breathable Tea Tree Anti-Imperfection Night Mask.It is specifically formulated to care for oily skin and imperfections while you sleep. Infused with salicylic acid and Community Trade tea tree oil, this 100% vegan leave-on mask for oily skin will reduce the size and number of imperfections* and achieve clearer, smoother, and healthier-looking skin.

  • Skin instantly looks and feels refreshed, purified, and soothed.
  • In the morning, imperfections* appear reduced.
  • Skin looks healthier, smoother, and mattified.
  • Improves appearance of pores.
  • Helps maintain clearer-looking skin.
  • Features a refreshing memory-gel texture and is infused with tea tree oil grown in the foothills of Mount Kenya.
  • Alcohol-free, no pillow-staining formula.
  • TOP TIP: Pop the Night Mask in the fridge for an ultra-refreshing feeling.
  • Tone, texture, and oiliness

And does this product live up to these claims?

Hell yes. This is one product that actually lives up to its label.

Bodyshop Anti-Imperfection Tea Tree Night Mask Benefits:


The first benefit is sheer laziness, sue me. If you’re anything like me, the most annoying part of face masks is the fact that you need to get up and take them off. 10 or 15 minutes is just enough time for me to get immersed in something else and forget about the fact I have a mask on my face.


This mask is an overnight mask, so you can slather it on and just . . . leave it. Perfect.


I have oily skin, so I have to be careful with moisturising face masks (ie avoid them) because they can break me out. The flip side to this, however, is that oily skin is often actually really dehydrated. One of the absolute essential things you need to do for it is add moisture – you just need to be careful of the ingredients.

The issue with this is that, while harsh products may give you quick results, they aren’t actually very beneficial for my skin type long-term. A large benefit of this mask is that it actually feels moisturising and refreshing (I’d describe it as a similar effect to Aloe Vera) on the face – it’s very cooling – but you can still feel the tea tree oil working.

(If you’d be interested in trying this mask, Pin this image for me!)


And, naturally, as we all expect from the Bodyshop: this works and it works quickly. You can see results on the first use – and you wake up with clearer, soothed skin. I love this for pre-event pampering; I know if I use it the night before something, I will wake up with glowing skin.


I will have to tell you about my on-going love affair with Salicylic Acid another time, but it’s like tea tree oil on steroids. (Literally; it’s far stronger, but also super mean to your skin is you don’t use it sparingly.) This mask contains two of my favourite acne-fighting ingredients – and it shows.

Where to buy?

Why, you can purchase it online from Bodyshop! And if you buy it through this link, I’ll recieve a little comission that goes towards me sunnin’ it up in Australia! (This doesn’t change the price for you.)

So you may be wondering . . . “Mia, why all the focus on beauty all of a sudden? You never used to talk about it and now we’re getting reviews almost weekly!”. Don’t worry, kids, I’m not transforming into a beauty blogger. (God, how awful would that be? I’d literally give all the worst advice possible.)

(While we’re on the subject though, make sure you’re following my Beauty & Skincare Pinterest board.)

There are three main reasons for the recent influx of beauty content on le blog – and all center around the fact I’m moving to Australia in September:

  1. As you guys already know, pretty much all my content for June, July and August has been written up and scheduled ahead of time. I’m talking I wrote this post back in June ahead of time. Reviews are one of the easiest posts to write in advance, hence the sudden influx. #LazyBlogging
  2. As you guys may not know, reviews actually earn me the most money. For some bizarre reason, my blog ranks quite well on reviews in terms of search engines – my Mario Badescu Acne Starter Kit Review pulls in 800 views a month and increasing. #CapitalistBlogging
  3. I’m putting more effort into my beauty regime so that I can glo like a mother fucking goddess when we get out there. #VainBlogging

I hope you guys don’t mind the increase in beauty related content too much! Hell, I’ve tried so many things to sort out my skin that I’ve actually got some really good recommendations. (Like this amazing face mask. If you have oily, acne-prone skin, this is for you.) Have you ever tried this mask? Would you? Are you a fan of the Bodyshop? Let me know your thoughts down below!

    Plenty of Body Shop outlets here. Lush is good for soap. Never too poor to afford a bar of soap was something my grandmother said… or so said Baldrick.

        CBD are my locals. Also out of Melbourne is Daylesford and Hepburn Springs. Spas etc… are good. Reasonably expensive but worth going out there. Might get cheap accommodation through yoga studios etc…

    1. I never tried anything from The body shop, I’m waiting for travelling so I can buy some, because I don’t like ordering online. I was interested in this one because of tea tree, but now it’s definitely on my wish list. xx

      1. Yayy! I noticed you weren’t around anymore, but hoped you’d just been swept off your feet by some amazing job or hot guy 😉 and yes yes I’m moving in September! Honestly girl, this mask is the real MVP. Thank you! 🙂 x

      2. Used to be a huge Body Shop fan but moved away from them over the years in favour of other brands. Recently been rediscovering the Body Shop but not ventured into the Tea Tree range yet. I’ll give it a go off the back of your review though, as a fellow oily skin owner I reckon I’m going to be dealing with break outs probably until I’m dealing with the bloody menopause so always on the look out for a hero product!

      3. No matter what you blog about, it makes for a fun read, so carry on sista! I remember asking if you were going on some vacation to Australia, on some post of yours. To hear that you are moving, why that is so exciting! Are you moving with family or solo? How is it feeling right now? xx

        1. Why thank you, Arundhati 🙂 And I knowww, it happened very quickly! I’m moving out there with two new friends, we all kind of wanted to try solo travelling but not entirely solo and found each other – and I’M SO EXCITED I LITERALLY CAN’T WAIT! xx

      4. I love your beauty related posts so keep up and good luck with moving out to Australia!! I am so tempted to try out this mask but I can’t. On top of that, I love The Body Shop!!!

      5. Ooo definitely going to check this mask out! My skin was looking good again last week but for some odd reason I started breaking out again and they’re the annoying under-the-skin spots that are really bumpy. As far as I’m aware, I don’t think it’s the new products that I’m using that’s breaking me out – I feel like it’s more just weather related but I’ll keep monitoring it. Will definitely give this a go though! X

        1. I highly recommend it! I don’t know if your skin is as sensitive as mine, but it may be breaking out because of your new office or stress? When I started my new job, the office was massively different to my old one in terms of air quality, natural lighting, air con, etc. and my skin MASSIVELY broke out x

          1. Ohh I’ve never considered that! I’m due on my period very soon again so that’s maybe why. Also – my skin is just always oily nowadays which doesn’t help lol. I swear I am the oiliest in the whole department and it’s not a pretty look lol! I try to powder when I can though so I look somewhat decent haha.

            1. You know what has MASSIVELY helped me recently? (Although I’m slightly hesitant to recommend it because I hate cake-facing in this weather) I never usually wear concealer other than under my eyebrows, but I tried putting it on the oiliest parts of my face (cheeks and a touch on my forehead) before a lil bit of mattifying foundation and it has MASSIVELY helped my oiliness. Which has weirdly actually helped my skin too because when I take it off at the end of the day it hasn’t been essentially sitting in its own oily mess all day

              1. What concealer are you using? I’m currently using Maybelline Age Rewind for undereyes and sometimes apply this on nose bridge, chin, forehead. For blemishes, I use the Bobbi Brown Full Coverage one but I don’t always use that. Depends if I can be bothered lol. But cool! Might try it one day. Am just scared to change up my routine for work in case it doesn’t work!

                1. Honestly, just this really cheap collection concealer! I’ve been using it for years but never really on the skin (I’ve never mastered using concealer for blemishes lool I always make them look more pronounced) but it’s worked a treat!

              2. Girl, give me all the beauty content you want because so far I’ve loved it all! I think the entire Body Shop range is incredible, especially so for anything that has tea tree in it because they’re really good at getting the balance where you can tell it’s doing something, but that something isn’t burning your face off lol. Loved this post, I also do a little happy dance every time you mention Australia in your post cos KEEN xx

                1. Ahh I’m so glad you’re enjoying my beauty content my lovely! It’s so much easier to get written and photographed ahead of time but I know it’s not everyone’s cuppa tea! And yes yes yes that’s literally all I want: tingly effectiveness but NOT tingly burning my face off. AND ASDFGHJKL PRIYA I’M COMING IN LITERALLY A MONTH AND TWO WEEKS HOW IS THIS REAL???xx

              3. I have never used an overnight mask before but it is such a good idea for some as busy (read: lazy) as myself. I will be picking it up in store unfortunately – if only you could have an in-person referral code! xx
