Tea tree oil has been a staple in my regime for over a year now, it's kinda ridiculous how much I love the natural scent of it actually... I use it to create my own make-up remover (Water, EVOO & few drops of Tea Tree Oil). Recently I've discovered that this product on its own works wonders for those cystic pimples as well!
I like the fact that the glass bottle is tinted and if you buy the smallest sized bottle the packaging acts like a dropper (hard to describe) which is convenient because you can control how much product is used; my only gripe is with the larger bottles which do not have that so I have to estimate how much to tilt the bottle - even then I often end up pouring too much product.
Overall, this product is a miracle worker! I think it has eliminated a lot of potential breakouts for me and I will continue to buy this forever.

I have pimples.. Which I use phisohex to help with that (and does work) but the occasional one or two pimples I get during my periods I use this directly onto the pimple! It dries out JUST THE PIMPLE so much it's amazing. I wouldn't put it on the whole face just the pimple and it will really kill it and help it stop being inflamed and helps lower the puss..
Or Once you pop the pimple you can put this onto the pimple (it does sting but goes away after a minute or 2) and the redness goes away. Especially before bed you wake up and it's lowered so much!
It helps dry it out so it goes away quicker
So cheap as well !!! I get a bottle for only $4.00 or something like that and lasts me forever !! Love this so much better than $20 acne sticks or $50 gels that don't do anything !

I only wish I discovered tea tree oil sooner - a decade sooner. Having tried three different antibiotics for acne and a bunch of prescription creams - Retin A, Isotrexin, Duac, Erythromycin - along with the usual over the counter creams - this is the only thing that brings relief to my breakouts.
It's reduces the inflammation, shrinks the pimples and seems to stop the bacteria from spreading further. It's possible to use this under make-up until the breakout goes away. Prescription creams make my skin flake like crazy.
I use this straight from the bottle when I need to and other times mix it with a moisturiser. I also use it (diluted) when I feel like I'm getting an ear infection and on my flaky scalp.
Between my bad skin, ears and scalp - and a tendency to get bitten by insects - I go through a lot of this stuff so the six Euros for 10mls add up but that's nothing in comparison to the cost of prescription creams and branded cleansers.
The smell is strong but it's also freshing so I don't mind (not like the smelly sock effect of Apple ciger vinegar). In any case, the smell is a small price for an oil that does so much.
Also, most of the acne prescription creams are not safe to use when pregnant but tea tree oil is. I'm not pregnant but I find this reassuring.

I use this tea tree oil for my skin. I take a cotton pad and put some tea tree oil on it and go with it over my face. It helps to keep my acne under control. The smell is just tea tree oil, it's a very strong smell but I kinda like the smell.

i recently got my nose re pierced after 2 years because every time i got my nose pierced, it'd get infected or end up with weird cysts.. ive been using this to disinfect my nose piercing every night and wow. i cant even begin with how amazing it works. i had tried everything. sea salt, anti microbial soap, etc. this is the only thing that has helped my piercing heal amazingly. i love this stuff esp for the price!

I use the ointment variant of this and I can't imagine what my face would look like without this! I've suffered acne, severe and mild, for years :( I've used benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid, all those common acne treatment products and out of them all, tea tree oil has had the least bad side effects and personally gives me the quickest results in healing pimples. It doesn't make my skin red and raw or dry it out like when I use benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid everyday on my skin. I sometimes use a warm compress on my spots (the really bad ones) then apply tea tree oil on it. You see results. Highly recommended!

Firstly it's lathering so you dont need much. It didn't moisturise my hair as I desired, left it dry and somewhat lifeless. It made my scalp dry amd somewhat flaky. After I dried my hair it seemed flat dull and lack luster. It certainly wasn't worth the price I paid for as I would of placed this in one of those very cheaper supermarket shampoos that no one uses often. The packaging is unattractive, a very ugly yellowish look that I wouldn't wear if you paid me.
I have used previous tea tree oil based shampoos and using this one convinces me they are not moisturing for my dry short color treated hair and I certainly won't be using one again nor would I reccomend this to anyone. cheers

Of all the treatments I've tried, I think I like TTO the best. Why, yes, I do. Most of the topicals you can purchase nowadays contain either Salicylic Acid (which made me peel far too much for my liking) or Benzoyl Peroxide (which burned my skin and caused severe dryness). I dislike both of those options and wanted something more natural this time so I gave TTO a go and was really pleased with its effectiveness.
Some points if you're interested:
- It seriously stops the pimple/blemish (even cystic!) dead in its tracks. Though the pimple will not completely disappear overnight, it definitely works to eat away at the bacteria causing the problem. And it goes to work instantly so if you catch a blemish early enough, it'll hardly become a problem for you as TTO will take it from there.
-It does not cause peeling or dry skin. I found that the only side effect was a bit of redness on the areas you apply it. However, I should note that I did NOT dilute as maybe you should? (what can I say, I live on the edge. :P ok, yeah, not really) I used it raw out of the bottle and applied with a Q-Tip to problem areas. It feels somewhat cold on your skin but is NOT at all painful. The redness does die down a littttttttttttle once the TTO dries but, yes, it is still there. Personally, I was willing to put up with the redness, considering the chemical topical alternatives can and HAVE done much worse.
-This may only make sense to me, myself and I but I love that it kills the bacteria WITHOUT bringing it to a head. Yes, yes, I know I'm weird. And yes, it may take a day or two longer to disappear this way, but it honestly makes my life so much easier when concealing it under makeup since there is no break in the skin, no dryness/peeling to deal with, rather, I only have to contend with the redness instead of all three like with other chemical-based counterparts. Anyone see what I mean? No? Only me? Ok moving on...
- Speaking of makeup, you can even wear TTO UNDER your makeup and forget about it for the day while it goes to work. What I mean is you won't have to worry about what it's doing to your face throughout the day. Let me explain why this makes me happy: Again, I don't know if it's only me who has had to deal with this but let me tell a little story; I once had a pimple that I figured I would treat with Clean&Clear's S.A. throughout the day. It said right on the bottle that it is PERFECTLY FINE to wear under makeup, so I figured this was a great way to speed up the healing process and get rid of the sucker. Unfortunately, I made the mistake of believing that it would be fine. I was horrified when I looked in the mirror half way through the day to find that the S.A. had made me peel, taking my concealer/powder/confidence with it. :/ Not cool. Needless to say, I never wore Salicylic Acid in public ever again. Anyway, TTO on the other hand will work under your makeup and will not give you any surprises that will make you cringe.
Overall, I'd say TTO is the best alternative to Benzoyl Peroxide, without the dryness or burning. As others have said, it's not a miracle worker but it certainly does help and so far it's one of the only products that can actually combat cysts. It's not overly cheap (10ml for $8 where I am) but seeing as you don't need to use very much for it to take effect, I suppose it's not terribly priced either. As well, it has quite a long shelf life, as long as it's stored properly. The smell bothered me at first (it has a spicy smell imo) but once I was used to it, I came to tolerate and even like it. Anyway, I definitely recommend TTO as an alternative to the harsh chemicals that may very well be damaging your skin.

this is one of my staple product. I use this for everything:add to bath,add to shampoo or face wash, use on pimples or cuts, mix with cleansing detergents when I'm cleaning my house, etc.
this doesn't burn, and I quite like the smell. this is just pure tea tree oil which I'm so grateful of. unlike body shop's tea tree oil,which has bunch of crap in it and sold more expensive than this.
the packaging is not travel friendly! this will spill! so when traveling I put this in a old opague glass serum bottle I have,it has a dropper and is wonderful for this product.
I like Thursday plantation products in general, but this is my fave

I have been suffering from mild acne for a long time. I always get these nasty whiteheads all over my face. Sometimes these whiteheads would turn into pustules. So I have been, and I am still trying to find the perfect solution to treat my pimples. Anyways, this product is good for spot treatment only. Do not rub it over your entire face because it will cause redness. I think it is a relatively effective spot treatment. It dries up the infected area and it fastens the healing process. But do not expect a miracle. Treating acne and pimples need time. Do not expect an overnight result. It takes time but I would say, it does help mostly with pustules but not so much whiteheads/blackheads.
