For those stubborn acne and their marks!

Review on  Body Shop Tea Tree Overnight Face Mask 


Acne and me, our love story is one of  time immemorial. I first saw it, when I hit puberty and since then it’s been a long never ending game of hide and seek. I trying to hide when it’s pops up and  it seeking me out whenever my skin is clear 😦

After trying out a lot of products, I feel one can easily prevent it if meted out with proper exercise and diet.

Past two months have been horrible to me, as I had a terrible outburst of acne on my chin, like some lover taking revenge, for being forgotten for long…

Almost two months ago I got my hands on this wonderful product by Body Shop, while carelessly killing time roaming around at Mumbai Airport.

Without much ado, I shall get to the most crucial part of the review:


The Body Shop Tea Tree Anti- Imperfection Nigh Mask works good on mild to moderate acne. It even reduces the redness and heals the most difficult of acne’s but takes time.

Redness and swelling for sure is reduced in a night only and you can see a visible difference in your skin with just two to three applications. It smells like tea tree oil and I somehow love it.


The keys ingredients of this product – Salicylic acid and  Tea Tree Oil, fights not only the existing acne, but also works through the night to fight the dormant one’s.

I have been applying this product consistently for over two months, and have seen a remarkable difference not in terms of acne reduction but also a visible glow and fading out of those stubborn acne marks. Depending on the severity of your acne, you can decide it’s application. I applied for at  least thrice a week.

Priced at INR 1999, this overnight mask goes on for at least two months, so not too heavy on pocket either.

All you got to do is to apply this face mask, after properly cleansing your face. Just apply a thin layer, add a dollop more on the acne. Continue with your work, as it dries out in about half an hour but then don’t rinse it. Just sleep with the mask on. Wash it off in the morning for a clearer  skin.


(Just a little heads up; do use a clean piece of towel , to place on your pillow. Although dries out in half an hour, but still since it’s more like gel there’s a possibility you might get it on your pillow, while sleeping. )

Also you can see in the picture, I have almost finished my bottle, with  just one application left. So probably I would be getting a new one, for those stubborn acne cysts, that just deny to go.

That girl

IMG_0612*That Girl according to Urban dictionary is a female in any social situation who purposefully draws attention to herself, resulting in “that girl” being hated by majority in the room. 


Chapter 1

Today when she woke up, it was there yet again, lunging on her heart puncturing it silently. The fight between conscience, love, faith and pride were happening right behind those twinkly eyes and cheery smile!!! She thought it’s been too long pushing the envelope, perhaps today is the day to stand the truth! How does she tell them?Should she tell over phone or in person? Will they shun her away ? Will they accept her?

Now this happens with her at least once every day, same little rattle…Apparently she is not able to figure out- whether it’s just another ‘Informed choice’ she made, like the time she wanted to pursue arts and not science or has she really disturbed the balance of the existing skeleton of society. But then she thought wasn’t then also elders of all sorts, grades, subjects, areas unitedly objected to it…
She still has those words reverberating from the time when she was invited for lunch by someone very close and they remarked,- “What you have done is not NORMAL’.
Back then and even now she hasn’t really figured out what’s not normal in that…!!! They didn’t even say- UNIQUE, for then she would have thought uniqueness is absolutely better than ‘Generalness’

With these thoughts, keeping her both lost and occupied, she quickly shuffles through her wardrobe humming ……coz I am happy……lalala….coz I am happy…..

Almost ready and with the buzzing sound of that coffee maker, her thoughts also fade away but just for a moment…
Sipping her early morning coffee, she rushes for her work, avoiding confrontations of her mighty heart…
“B’bye”, she says to him gushing, and hurriedly sits in the cab that’s been waiting down since the time those intimate conversations of her heart were brewing, at the same time like coffee.
