I used to breakout a lot on my forehead and nothing I did seemed to help get rid of (not even washing my face consistently). I tried this tea tree oil assuming it was going to be another failed attempt, but it actually worked!. I applied a small amount (a drop) on my pimple at night after washing my face, and noticed my pimple would disappear in the next day or two. Consistent use also reduced the amount of pimples I got in addition to getting rid of the existing ones. My skin is very sensitive so I would get hyperpigmentation in the area I get the pimple. With this tea tree oil, my skin also stopped discoloring. This product is definitely always going to be #1 on my list to get rid of pimples.
Tea Tree Oil has improved my pimples and acne by so many levels. I apply a decent amount with a cotton swab in the problem areas. By the next morning, I see significant changes. However, it does take time for it to take full effect. Took roughly a good week to get rid of a fairly big zit on my chin. Overall, it's pricey but worth it. I recommend it.
I used to be very dedicated to this line. I rarely used any other products. My whole skincare routine consisted of the tea tree line from the bodyshop. I few years back I had really bad acne. I couldn't pinpoint the reason for the intense breakout. I was exploring skincare products and found great reviews for this line online. I also love that is is affordable. The bodyshop has one of the best deals I have ever come across.
If you feel like you are struggling with mild acne, I would give this line a look.
i buy this oil to mix with my shampoo to use as a head lice preventative. (i work with little kids--and lice is epidemic)This does the job and I love the smell .
I often used to get random breakouts and sometimes they could be quite bad, and i had heard the body shops tea tree oil was amazing, so i went and bought some and for over 2 years now i have been using it and almost never get any breakouts
-bottling is kind of inconvenient for me
-very effective in the beginning (pimples are unnoticeable after overnight use) until my skin got use to it
Amazing product! It's a natural product that works very effectively as a spot treatment for acne, reducing the redness and speeding up the healing process. I have gone through 3 bottles of this already and I can the see the improvement in my skin.
For me, this product definitely worked. I had quite a lot of acne on my forehead until I had a facial extraction, in which they also recommended me to use this product also. I do believe that usually when I applied it at night, the next day, the affected area would diminish in redness and puffiness. The smell is a little strong, but you gradually get used to it. Also technically you are suppose to mix the oil with your normal lotion you apply on your face so it's not too strong.
My brother and I used this and it did nothing for either of us. The areas where I applied it, the skin around the zit went dry, but the zit didn't shrink. I didn't mind the scent.
Tea tree oil has so many uses. It is great for acne, fungal infections, you can soften your cuticles with it. I put it in my shampoo for my middle school aged daughter to repel lice and so far she's only had lice 1 time in grade 1. Since I started using tea tree oil she has never caught lice again. It is supposedly good for jock itch and athletes foot and cold sores. This is one of those oils everyone should have tucked away in your medicine cabinet. It is amazing how beneficial it is. I use it as a makeup remover. I mix it with canola oil and then I use my round cotton swab and it makes my face clear and nice and moisturized. Never ever ingest it though it is not safe. I love the body shop brand and it lasts so long because it is so strong, you only need a few drops most times for what you are using it for.
