i really like their tea tree oil. it's 15% tto, the rest are mainly water and alcohol.

i've also tried their tto mask and honey&oats mask. they're ok too but i wouldn't repurchase.

in general, i don't particularly like this brand. they market their brand being natural and organic. but really, if you read the ingredients label, the natural and organic ingredients are usually at the bottom of the list. also, the fragrance is too strong, which is a big no-no for being gentle. so, other than tto, it's unlikely that i'll buy any other products from tbs.

The body butter smells nice but I don't like the texture near as much as palmer's cocoa butter, so I can't justify spending $15 on the stuff. I have some eyeshadows from there that I like, they're not as pigmented as higher quality ones like stila but they're cheap. I like the lavender blotting sheets. I've used the TTO cleanser, it was as good a gel cleanser as any and not expensive. I don't think that the tea tree did anything except inspire them to color it green and scent it with mint but it worked okay. I was going to buy a vitamin C serum from them but read some frightening reviews on MUA and bought a jason natural one instead. I used their seaweed toner for awhile because it was the only oily skin toner I could find that didn't have alcohol as a main ingredient -- I'm not sure that it did anything that witch hazel wouldn't have done, but it wasn't expensive and was pleasant to use. Overall I'd give them "pretty good for the money" as a review.

A really bad thing i used from there was some Tea Tree Cleanser thing. It was horrible, it made my skin really oily and breakout...

Is it only $15? That annoys me. It's $18 here. Home grown British chain selling it cheaper abroad :hand: Sort it out Anita Ruddock!

I just checked, it's actually $16, $7.50 for the little tins. I only ever bought it on sale plus it's been years. I just use a little around my chest and neck for the smell when I do use it...palmer's works better at keeping my legs and elbows moisturized.
