can anyone help me with a birthday gift for my boyfriend

so my boyfriend usually has pretty dry skin around his mouth and nose.
he's tried a few lotions but usually they never work and his skin still looks dry and flaky.
he tried my paul mitchell tea tree lotion and it worked wonders.
the other day i was at the mall and saw that the body shop also has a tea tree lotion.
are they pretty much the same thing?

also, what do you do about acne in the abdomen area? my boyfriend always complains at the even though he rarely has acne. i told him to stop scrubbing so much with a loofah. maybe i'm wrong?

Ime, Paul Mitchell's tea tree seems to be almost extra strength. I used the conditioner and the tea tree effect was always better with PM products. </p>

Also I wouldn't think scrubbing with a loofah would cause the acne... Does he have a bunch of hair there?

yeah. it's the opposite for me when i use the PM tea tree...my skin goes dry.

nah, he doesn't have a lot of hair there.

I really like the Tea Tree skin clearing lotion from The Body Shop. It's the only item in their Tea Tree line that I like, though... the others I think are rubbish.

oh really? what else have you tried from the body shop? i've never tried anything from there.

I had something like that and you know what worked for me? Vaseline. I'd tried everything for it. All sort of creams, lotions, oils, moisturizers, and nothing stopped the peeling and flaking until, out of desperation, I tried plain old Vaseline. And to my shock it worked! No more flaking and peeling! And it's super cheap, so win win!
