Biossance tea tree trio review
This trio contains three products and retails for 29$. It contains the Squalane + Tea Tree Cleansing Oil (1.01 oz/ 30 mL), the Squalane + Tea Tree Detox Mask (0.84 oz/ 25 mL), and the Squalane + Tea Tree Balancing Oil (0.33 oz/ 10 mL).
Biossance describes this set as “a trio of pure and powerful formulas enriched with tea tree to help control excess oil, soothe redness, and reduce the appearance of blemishes”. It targets fine lines and wrinkles, dullness, and uneven skin tone and dryness.
The cleanser has a gel formula and is meant to intensively purify the skin and control excess oil while keeping it nourished and balanced.

Just a side note that Biossance retrieves its squalane ethically and is plant-based.
I love Biossance’s green and gold aesthetic and the packaging of these products does not disappoint. They follow perfectly well Biossance’s aesthetic and look so beautiful in photographs and on my shelf. They also come in a pretty practical packaging. The gel cleanser and detox mask come in a squeezable tube while the oil comes in hard plastic and has a dropper which I appreciate.
The packaging is not the most sustainable but it is definitely recyclable which I love!
I really liked how each of these products performed on my skin however I did not see any major results and let me explain why. I have an acne-prone, combination skin that is quite sensitive hence this trio looked great for my specific skin issue. The three of them contain tea tree oil which is a good acne-fighting agent. It’s an ingredient that soothes the skin and is an anti-oxidant. So, it’s a great ingredient to soothe inflammation caused by acne. However, this ingredient was not enough to fight my acne or even show major changes in my skin. These three products also contain squalane which is an amazing ingredient to hydrate and replenish the skin and which my skin absolutely loves!
The gel cleanser cleans the skin effectively yet is super gentle. It has a light scent that is pleasant and soothing yet is not overpowering. This cleanser does contain a lavender essential oil which can be bad for the skin but is harmless in a wash-off treatment. Hence, I don’t mind it at all. This cleanser contains other great ingredients to hydrate and soothe the skin like glycerin and Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice. In general, I loved using it, it removed all of the impurities on my skin and left my skin looking clean and fresh however it is not as purifying as it claims.
The mask felt very gentle and non-drying on my skin yet felt very refreshing and detoxing. For my type of skin, I think it was a bit too hydrating and not detoxing enough. As for clay, it contains montmorillonite which is a good absorbent and great for oily skin. It also contains illite, also known as French green clay, which is perfect to calm irritated skin and kaolin which is perfect to absorb impurities. Like the cleanser, the mask contains lavender oil but again, it’s in a wash-off treatment so it’s fine.
Finally, amongst these products, I enjoyed the most the oil. It made my skin feel so hydrated and calm. It contains interesting ingredients such as sunflower seed oil which is an amazing emollient. It’s an amazing ingredient to replenish, nourish, strengthen, and soothe the skin. What I don’t like about this product is, like the two products above, it contains lavender oil. Lavender oil can be very harmful and sensitizing to the skin when it’s in a leave-on product, like this oil.
Conclusion – Biossance tea tree trio review 7.5/10
To conclude, I really enjoyed using this trio but I don’t think I’ll ever repurchase them. The products are okay and perfect to calm the skin, and in theory, they should perform amazingly. It’s just that I did not see any major difference in my skin when I started using them. And, tea tree oil is, in my opinion, not the best product to treat acne.
That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed reading this review. If you did, don’t forget to give it a ‘like’ and to subscribe to my blog.
