Okay, first of all this is a spot treatment. It isn't designed to be used all over the face. It should be drying, because the product is designed to dry out your pimples and the excess oil/impurities inside them. It is a pimple rescuer not a preventative, so you'll be upsetting your skin's chemistry if you apply it everywhere because it will call unneeded dryness....
That being said, I LOVE this product. It isn't tested on animals and works perfectly for my skin type. I brought it home with me from college and now my mom and brother both use it, too. It isn't a one-time pimple fix. You will need to reapply to the pimple. Try putting it onto bug bites as well. I find that it stops itching temporarily. It'll sting on broken skin, so be warned!
Burt's Bees Herbal Blemish Stick really works well for me. I use it in the morning and/or at night, and it dramatically shrinks zits. My face looks so much clearer since I have been using this product. The thing I really like about it is that it does NOT cause my face to peel and flake like other products *cough* salicylic acid *cough*
The alcohol in it does sting for a few seconds if you have a broken pimple. Also, I wish it wasn't quite so expensive. Other than that, no complaints. Be sure to apply only to a cleanly washed face, otherwise you'll be spreading bacteria/gunk from your face onto the roller ball applicator tip.
Amazing! Firstly, you women are soo petty. Complaining about the smell of an extraordinary product, lord.
Tonight I am hosting a birthday blow out for my boyfriend. This my first time meeting some of his friends and family. So, I am hoping to look perfect. Although, this morning I woke up with a "zit" on my cheek. Did I fret? No. Why? I have my Burt's Bees Herbal Stick. So, please ladies, don't be a sheep. Have a backbone and make up (no pun intended) your own mind. Try it yourself. You won't regret it. You will see major results in around just an hour.
I started using this on cystic acne and saw no difference, however it did shrink and heal whiteheads so it is not useless. I will probably not buy this again because of my type of acne, but I will use the rest of tube and try it on body acne based on these reviews. If you have cystic acne and oily skin, seems to be a waste of time.
Did not really work on my face but kind of worked on back acne the really small ones.
I don't use this product on my face, only on my body. I really like the end result, it's good at preventing body breakouts and quickly treats existing blemishes. My biggest complaint is the packaging, I feel like if you're not careful it's easy to waste a lot of the product. It doesn't stop me from repurchasing though.
It does sting on recently popped zits and yeah, I guess it smells (not bad, just herbal) - I usually apply with my fingertiip as the roller ball puts on more than I need. This is a great spot treatment; I feel like it really does get rid or shrink the zit by the end of the day. Definitely not for use as an overall treatment, use only for spots. My skin is super oily but this will dry it out badly if I try to, say, spread it all over my chin.
I have this product only when I have a breakout, and only on that spot. It is too drying for me to use all over. The scent is very strong, the product is very thin, and runs out easily because of the roller-ball applicator. That said, this is the only product I have found effective for me consistently for spot application on a blemish. I put some on at night, and by morning, the blemish is better. I use this more during the summer, when workouts/sunscreen/heat lead to more blemishes. I always keep some on hand.
i loove this product !! it really helps to clear up my acne. i do not break out a lot, but when i do i take out this stick and it helps so much !! it helps the zits to heal naturally. however, it does dry out the skin, and you have to wait for several days to get rid of larger zits. overall good product. EDIT: it smells really strong, so be prepared for the strong, herby-alochaly scent!
I was really hoping that this product would work, however, it did not. Like other people I think it made me break out more. The smell is also very strong.
