I use this for pimples and found it works effectively. It really minimizes the pimple size and kills it inside also. Sometimes pimple potions only target the surface but I could still feel the bud beneath the skin. Jason Tea Tree Oil takes its time, and I really mean it takes its time to address the pimple (estimate 2~3 weeks of application every night), but it is effective and does not leave glaring red post-pimple marks. For patient people, a recommended buy.
I love tea tree oil, and Jason's version is the best I've tried. It's the purest concentration of tea tree oil I've found, and it works better than any other I've tried. The little bottle might seem expensive, but it lasts several months if you just use it as a spot treatment like I do. It clears up any spots I get quickly and without any scarring. I suggest only using it at night because, since it's pure oil, it is obviously quite oily and wouldn't work very well under makeup.
This is a great, natural product to use on acne. I usually just let a few drops soak on the end of a Q-tip and place it on needed areas. It's also nice to use on scalp breakouts.
This stuff has been a miracle in a little bottle for me. I've had problem skin ever since I was young (no major acne, but almost always a few spots here and there due to pores that clog VERY easily), so I've been through a ridiculous amount of washes, toners, and OTC spot treatments over the years that were aimed at helping troubled skin. Nothing I had tried worked well enough to leave me wide-eyed and impressed enough to be rave ready of the product. That is untiI I tried this. I apply the oil (undiluted) directly onto my fingertip and then rub it on any area that may be giving me problems. It doesn't irritate my skin (unless I go overboard and apply way too much...), it absorbs quickly, and the results are quick as well. I apply it at night and by morning any full blown zit that I may have seems a good 50% smaller. Repeat the process and by day 3-4 it's pretty much gone if not gone entirely. For super stubborn pimples I'll also apply a bit in the morning, and the oil doesn't interfere with concealer application in the slightest. Truly great stuff, and all natural at that!
I honestly believe this product has been what has helped calm my skin and get rid of breakouts. I have been using this for a couple of months now and recently noticed that my face had infact looked so much more clear than it has in a very very long time. I hadn't changed anything up except adding this in. I use this in 3 different ways. First, I use it in my face wash. I don't add it in every single time, but try to remember to add it into 1 of my 2 daily face washings. I add about 3-4 drops. Then, I also use this as a toner. I wet a cotton ball with cold water and then squeeze out most of the water, just leave it damp. I add about 2 drops and apply all over my face. Again, this form of toner isn't used each time, but probably once every 2 days. (the other times, I have a different toner I also like to use). Finally, I use tea tree oil as a spot treatment. I take a Q-tip and drop it on just until the swab is saturated with the oil...not diluted with water or anything...and apply it directly to any blemishes or areas that feel as though a blemish is working on coming through. I kind of massage the oil into that area for a moment just to be certain it is being absorbed in to the trouble area. I have had no problems with additional breakouts or over drying of the skin. Because this is a natural product, I feel good about using it and don't at all feel it is over-kill in the ways I am applying it. Plus, it is an antiseptic so it is REALLY killing the bacteria that causes breakouts--great product, love it... don't love the smell, but I can over look that considering all the wonderful things it is doing for the condition of my skin. (my husband HATES the smell, but he can get over it..lol) Let me also add, this is an oil, but it does NOT leave the skin oily. It absorbs right in and you don't even notice you applied an oil to the skin after a few minutes.
I hardly ever do any reviews - I am more of a reader than a reviewer - but I just had to do one for Jason's Natural Tea Tree Oil Gel (the one with the koala bear on the packaging). It is awesome! It is very calming and moisturizing! I also slather it on after a shower on my arms, chest, and stomach. Whenever I start peeling from too much retin-a, I just slap on some tea tree gel and it immediately calms my skin down. Sometimes it doesn't do away with all the peelies, but I have coconut oil for that. I really like how it dries immediately too.
I put it on after I wash my face and tone, morning and night, and I love it. I don't mind the natural smell either. I picked mine up for $4.45 at the local health food store and I am so glad I did! Repurchase? Hell yeah.
I have battled acne for at least 25 years and always on the hunt for a miracle cure. Recently it seems I always had a zit along my jaw line even when it wasn't time for my period. In the past I would cover with QHMJ and they would eventually go down but not away.
I saw reviews on the skin care board for Tea Tree OIl and thought I would give it a try. Well, it has done wonders for my skin. I had two pimples along my jaw line and another on my forehead that would not go away. After washing my face I put the oil directly on the pimples. I did this morning and night and within two days my face was CLEAR.
Yes, it stinks. It smells like medicine and pine forest (I think that's what another reviewer said) but this stuff works. I can get past the smell because I have clear skin. This is a stample in my house, My 13 year old daughter has dry sensitive skin (total opposite from mom) and it works for her. continued >>
I'm beginning to wonder if there's some kind of limit on how many miracle products one can discover. I am very happy with my Spectro Derm, Spectro Hydracare and FOTE aloe vera gel, but I always find myself trying new products in search of the next holy grail. I think I've found mine and karma has deemed that anything else will fail to work for me.
I bought the tea tree oil for use on non-inflamed acne and blackheads. I was determined to stick it out and wait for at least a month to see results, but I just couldn't do that to my skin. First off, the tto smells HORRIBLE. I thought witch hazel was bad; at least that fades! I was smelling tto throughout the day. Secondly, it made my existing pimples worse. I tried it as a spot treatment one night and woke up to a bigger zit! Finally, it left me looking horribly greasy and disgusting. When I washed my face at the end of the day I was appalled at how slimy my face felt and how shiny it was; I can't imagine how bad it would have been if I had been wearing foundation!
All in all, tea tree oil was a waste of time and money for me. It is one of the few products that I have just thrown out, rather than try to find another use for. I do not recommend it.
So much better for my sensitive skin than topicals from derms, some of which cleared blemishes and all of which made my face look even worse with redness and irritation. I put a bit on a cotton swab and apply directly to blemishes. In my case it doesn't make zits go away *quite* as fast as some harsher treatments, but the health of the skin and overall result is far superior. Give it a chance to do it's thing! I've used several different brands, but happen to be using Jason right now and don't notice this one (or any others) to be better or worse than others - I think it's the pure essential oil itself rather than a specific brand. I will say that I don't love the smell, but it's a very small price to pay for the overall benefits. Oh, and this bottle is lasting a long time despite 2x/dy application.
My skin is SO sensitive...and when I get blemishes/pimples they tend to stay for a LONG time. Any acne products burn and irritate my skin and dry it out excessively, so I've given up on "spot"/blemish creams altogether. On a makeup board a couple of weeks back, someone recommended this for me. I was skeptical because of past experiences with "natural"/organic cosmetic products. But I decided to give this a try.....While my blemishes did not completely disappear, they did dry up and get A LOT smaller, overnight....without irritating my skin. It's not the best scent ever, but since it works, I can deal with that lol. My only real gripe is that it's tough to get out of the bottle...
