Living in a hot and humid climate, I love this stuff! I'm not very prone to blemishes and typically have dry\normal skin. The pump is good and it makes my face squeaky clean. I only would use it to clean my face at night. The smell is a bit strong but I don't mind that. Be sure not to get any in your eyes! I just switched to TJ's Nourish cleanser so we'll see how they are different. But come spring\summer, I will definitely repurchase.

I bought this soap because the packaging stated it was good for acne. I have used it 3 times now and I've broken out worse than before I used it. I have little raised bumps underneath my skin all over my chin and cheek areas. I'm so disappointed, because I'm constantly looking for something to keep my breakouts at bay. I'm glad so many other people are having good results, but wondering why I didn't!

I've been using TJ's Tea Tree Oil Soap everyday for nearly a week...and my acne is already clearing up! I purchased the 2 in a pack for $2...which isn't bad at all. The liquid tea tree oil costs $6.99 at TJ's and I didn't want to pay that much for a very small bottle. I tried Ayurvedic soap, Dove soap and Olive Oil soap in the past and my face would break out even more! I won't be using any of those other soaps anymore and will be stocking up on TJ's Tea Tree Oil Soap when I go back there next week (I live an hour away from the nearest Trader Joe's but well worth the trip).

I have been using this for about a week now and my skin is so happy. I use this after using an Aveeno Daily Cleansing Pad and this makes my skin feel refreshed and soft. I live in Texas and it's very hot, therefor my skin becomes very clogged and my pores look disgusting. I can tell that after using this, my pores are smaller looking and even my breakouts are reduced. The only problem (which for me is not an issue) is that this face wash is drying to the skin. So, if your skin is dry, do not use this. I have oily-combo skin, so this is perfect for balancing my skin. And the drying only comes from the tea tree oil, rather than an alcohol. And for $6 for a pretty large bottle full of natural products, it's a steal!

This seemed to work well for the first 1-2 weeks. I tend to get a new pimple every 1-3 days, and my skin is usually oily and acne prone, so this seemed like a suitable cleanser. I had went to Trader Joe's to try their Nourish all in one face wash which has a great review on Beautypedia, but they didn't seem to carry it at the Bellingham location, so I went home with this one instead. The smell was tolerable since I prefer things unscented, and the consistency was very liquidy, but lathered surprisingly well on wet skin. I noticed that my pores looked smaller, and my skin was better than it had looked in a long time. Even new pimples seemed to clear up quicker and never reached peak severity.

A few weeks after using this my skin began to break out and it's been itchy, reddish and irritated ever since. At first, I didn't really think it was the cleanser, so I tried to persist with using it, but on my sensitized skin (I had been using acne medication on my blemishes), it just made things crazy itchy and inflamed. Now, I'm too afraid to use it, which is sad, cuz I had been so excited to try products from Trader Joe's, and had made a trip to the states just to try them.

It's possible that the initial break out isn't related to the cleanser, but for sure this cleanser is NOT good on SENSITIZED, active-break out skin, or skin that's being treated with acne medication in multiple areas of the face (probably one or two pimples is okay, but not an active breakout all over the face).

I have been including this in my acne clearing regimen for a few months now and it does a fine job at removing acne causing bacteria on my face, and I like that it is all natural. I used to just use tea tree oil extract as a spot treatment and really wanted a cleanser with that instead of salicylic acid used tea tree oil as a blemish fighting ingredient. This alone will obviously not get rid of acne on it's own but I use this first after removing makeup and also when I first wake up, following it with toner, eye cream, moisturizer where needed and either tea tree oil extract or benzoyl peroxide cream where I have a zit (the latter if it's a really clogged pore). Love this product, I like that it does what it is intended to do, it's fairly inexpensive, you get a good amount of product for less than $6 and it is not tested on animals (cruelty free counts for me) highly recommended for combination/oily skin like mine and I will most likely repurchase

I am revewing for the bar soap. I am using this to replace my previous Neutragina face wash to remove regular but light acne. I am not quite sure what this soap does to remove the acne--it seems to clear it for a couple of days and then it will come out again even if I keep using the bar. and I also noticed some little bumps on my skin that I don't usually see before. I will try something else after I am done with these two bars.

I have been suffering from acne as a teen until recently. Thanks to the liquid tea tree soap, I am the clearest I've ever been. I still get a pimple here and there, but it's definitely the best cleanser I've ever tried for my acne prone skin. Tea tree seems to be very agreeable for me.

My review is for the bar soap. I bought it after running out of my Eve Lom cleanser, which has been part of my regimen that's kept my skin pretty much problem-free for a long time. I decided to give the soap a try while waiting for my EL order to arrive in the mail. I wish I had ordered the EL earlier because just a few days after using the soap my skin reacted negatively to it. I got little bumps on my forehead, which used to be a problem for me but was kept at bay ever since I found a regimen that worked for me. My skin became drier and irritated. The problem got better when I stopped using the soap but I am still waiting for it to return to normal.
