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.

Effective Acne Treatment

By Happy Kitten

Pros

  • Easy To Use
  • Works Effectively

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Adult Acne
    • Blackheads & Whiteheads
    • Inflammatory Acne

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

    I had persistent acne for two years, which commercial products could not clear. I started using tea tree oil once a day after cleansing. I place a drop onto a cotton pad, add water and gently wipe. The breakouts stopped within 1 week. Now, I apply every 2 or 3 days to prevent new acne. It can sting a little bit so dilution is recommended, especially for sensitive skin. Tea tree oil and applying jojoba oil with a cotton pad every other day has kept my skin clean and clear. What a relief to be finally free of the frustration and chemicals!

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

      I have only used this for a little bit now, and already my blemishes have decreased. I use it at night before going to bed and put it on current acne as well as spots where I normally get it. My acne is not completely gone, but I have noticed a great improvement. I haven't diluted it for my face, as recommended, but sensitive skin users probably should.

      MUST DILUTE!!!

      I bought this a few weeks ago and use it like toner-- but diluted (see below) and never around the eyes or too close to the lips! I use it in the morning, mid-day touchups, and night, and noticed with the first use that I wasn't getting those little white pusers anymore that like to pop up like gophers when you're out and nowhere near a mirror to spot them. Gone, never coming back :) My pores have been cleaner, unstuffed, and thus not grossing people out. It works great on my jaw/neck too. I even use it around the greasy parts of my ears which have disgustingly large pores. They're not gray anymore! Again gross, I know. Just dont get any ideas about dipping your q-tip in the oil and sticking it in your ear. BAD idea. This oil is caustic to mucosal membranes.

      TO USE: Since this is an oil, and wont mix with water, you can't just pour them in the same bottle and shake. I invested in some cotton rounds and a rounds dispenser. Dab 2-3 spots of tea tree oil on the round, then wet it under the sink. Instant toner pad :)

        Instead of drying out my face when I apply it to inflamed areas, it soothes, makes my face soft, doesn't dry my face out while drying the pimple out.

            This product is great! It hasn't cleared up my skin overnight, but is the only thing that has been effective so far (I'm dealing with post-pregnancy cystic acne in one specific area of my face)...definitely worth a try!

              I have used so many products for pimples over the years. I did some research and read that this oil helps with breakouts so I decided to try it. I'm so glad I did! It works great. Before bed I put a little on a Q-tip add a little water then dab it on any pimples/zits. By morning they are significantly reduced or gone. I never have to use it more than twice on a pimple, it works so fast. Nothing I have ever tried does that!

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

              So it smells a bit - strong like eucalyptus. Very herbal. I actually like the smell. Works great for pimples, but apply very directly - with fingertip or cotton swab. I imagine a cotton ball would dilute it too much and cause excessive stinging. It has also worked so far for keeping toenail fungus away while sharing showers with the fungi-ed. Works on Yeast too. Multi-purpose anti-yuck-ant.

                Smells strongly, but I LOVE it!! Has so many uses:

                Pour a cap full into foundation to keep your skin clear.

                Add some to your shampoo to cure dandruff.

                Mix it with astringent or lotion to avoid ingrown hairs after shaving.

                It's awesome!
