I have been plagued with adult acne and have tried EVERYTHING under the sun, moon, and stars to treat it. I absolutely LOOOOVE this product and am so glad that I tried it. Some people find the smell to be too strong, but I actually don't mind it. I just dab 2-3 drops onto a wet cotton ball and put it all over my face. Because you only use so little, 1 oz will surely go a long way. Any inflammation I have is either significantly reduced or completely gone by the morning! I swear to the creator. And, since I have been using it, I have not had those deep, painful pimples. I have read that tea tree oil can be used for many other ailments, so this is a must have around the house. Try it!

Tea Tree oil is my new secret for curing the occasional breakout and ridding my nose of any black heads that may appear. I ALWAYS add water to the cotton ball or Q-tip before applying it to my face however, as tea tree oil can be very irritating. I've been using this Desert Essence tee tree oil; however, since buying this I've come to realize that the packaging is very, very bad. Tee tree oil should be stored in a dark glass container so it doesn't lose its potency and isn't ever exposed to sunlight. I'm also not sure if this container is actual glass or heavy plastic - if it is plastic, the tee tree oil is potent stuff and could corrode the plastic container and cause toxic chemicals to mix with the tea tree oil. Also a "dropper" bottle would be much more convenient as this bottle dispenses WAY too much product. I will continue to buy tea tree oil, but will definitely be using a different brand - Desert Essence seems pretty clueless when it comes to packaging.

    Comments about Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil, 1 fl oz:

    Smells strong, but my grandson actually likes it and says it has a relaxing affect on him. He breaks out on his back really bad now and then so I'll use a Q-Tip to apply it directly to the affected areas. I'm so glad I came across this because I remember what it was like for me as a teen with acne.

    Comments about Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil, 1 fl oz:

    I have pretty bad breakouts on my forehead and back and I used this product once and it cleared up my acne.

    Beware, though. It dries out your skin! Therefore, always moisturize after use. Also, it smells BAD! If you are sensitive to smells, I do not suggest you use this.

          Used twice, nice. Just as many review says it's a little bit hard to know how much water should be mixed with it. But it's real tea tree oil, same smell as the one I normally use from the bodyshop. Very good price.

          Comments about Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil, 1 fl oz:

          I bought this after reading about it's effectiveness on acne forums. I do not have severe acne. I only get the occasional pimple. I have combination skin. I dab just a little on a cotton pad, add some water and use it as a toner. It feels very cool to the skin. However, it smells like turpentine. The smell doesn't bother me though as it goes away after a few minutes. I recently had a couple of large pimples brewing under my skin. I dabbed a little of the tea tree oil directly where the pimples were forming for 2-3 nights and the pimples went away completely! I was pretty amazed. The only bad thing I dislike about this item is the bottle. It needs to be in a dropper bottle.

          Refreshing, natural toner

            Comments about Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil, 1 fl oz:

            If you can get past the smell, it is a super toner. I find that my face has a nice glowy sheen after I wipe my face with a cotton ball with a drop of this stuff. I do dilute it by wetting the cotton ball with water.
            I love the clean, tingly sensation I get. Kind of reminds me of Noxema I used when I was a teen. The fact that it's all natural makes me feel good about using it considering that I use so many products on my face.
            My hubby can't stand the smell but I don't mind it at all. I would say the smell is between pine and shoe polish. The strong scent and tingly sensation really wakes me up in the morning. My face feels minty fresh!
            I bought it with an intention of using it to prevent breakouts and for treatment of existing pimples. I'm not sure how effective it is as I have not been breaking out like crazy. Usually I don't break out as much in summer but fall is just around the corner so I'll soon find out if it helps at all. However, I love it as a toner and it helps my skin feel so soft and made a difference in my skin texture. I have added it to my permanent skin care regimen.

                    This tea tree oil works as it should. I use it for many reasons.

                    I understand that some people may prefer it to have a drip cover, which there are other tea tree oils, I believe also by this brand, which do so, although some people need a non-drop top for certain uses. The type of top depends on what you need to use the tea tree oil.

                    This tea tree oil suits my needs perfectly! :)

                        Major issue with the bottle design is really the only problem I have with this product. There isn't a disk to control the drip, nor is there a dropper. If you turn the bottle slowly to only pour out a few drops the liquid runs down the side of the bottle. Because of this I just poured a couple of ML's on my kitchen counter and now the house stinks.

                            Comments about Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil, 1 fl oz:

                            I've had acne for about 10 years now and didn't want to continue with the irritating benzoyl peroxide, so I went for this. I wet a cotton ball, apply the tea tree oil to it, and spread it across my face. It's been as effective as the peroxide but hasn't dried my skin out like the other. I've seen less pimples, but I can't say that it's helped get rid of my blackheads and whiteheads.

                            Also, the smell is quite strong when you first open the bottle. I, for one, never thought that it stunk too badly... It's just a strong medicinal smell, not like a garbage can or something, that dissipates quickly after application.
