Boots Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Exfoliating Pads


I've always been quite OCD about taking good care of my skin. I never ever suffered with any sort of spots when I was younger but as soon as I hit 20 I broke out in cystic acne and that's when it hit me that I had to really try and prevent any further breakouts. Fast forward a little and I still bear the slightly red battle scars of quite a serious skin ailment and one that actually affected me quite profoundly. I will never forget how horrible it feels to not want to go on a night out with friends or go without make up in front of the boy you fancy just because your face has decided that it doesn't want to behave itself. 

At the moment I wear far less make up and do a full cleanse, tone and moisturize skin routine both morning and night. I'd say I'm getting there in terms of how I feel about my scars now. I'm a pretty confident person when it comes to my looks because lets be honest they don't last forever do they so you gotta work with what you got. I used to actually wear a full face of make up to the gym and genuinely get so worked up about it but as I've got older I've realized there are far more important things to life than how you look. That said I definitely think everyone could use a bit of confidence from time to time.

I've been using these Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Exfoliating Pads to help me feel more confident about baring everything and I'm absolutely a fan. I used to use pure witch hazel as a toner until I realized that using it over my whole face was drying out my skin. These on the other hand work so well. I apply them to affected areas and they dry out blemishes so quickly. I like that they can also be used on other parts of the body too like the back and chest or anywhere you suffer from spots. I can't believe how well these actually work and they are super affordable too. Well done Boots!


Has anyone else ever suffered from acne or scarring? What do you use?

  1. I'm intrigued by these. I do love an exfoliating pad. The Origins ones are great, as are the Nip+Fab ones which I'm using daily just now. My only concern is that I have quite dry skin so I'd be cautious about them being too drying for me, other than that they sound like a great product! x

    1. I've yet to try the nip + fab ones but I'm definitely going to soon! I think they are only drying if you use them on your whole face rather than just a particularly blemish probe area haha ! Xxx

  2. Lovely review. I have a terrible habit of picking all the spots on my back and chest, perhaps it's time to start wiping with an exfoliating pad rather than picking at them!
