As a product, it is comparable to Retin-A and the likes, without the cumulative harsh drying effects and price tag. And it's organic.
However, the smell is pretty strong. So strong, that I cannot decide if I want to buy it again. It doesn't work better than my Retina per se, it just makes me feel better about myself as I know it is organic and less drying. It's a maybe, leaning more toward than not side.

I stalked this forever. I finally bought it, simply because I liked the packaging.
Lo and behold, it works.
I washed my face, rolled it on two painful zits, and went to sleep. I was ready to pop them when I woke up the next morning...and what did I find but smooth skin. I couldn't even find a slight bump under the skin, it was like it dried up and healed completely. I am rarely wowed like that. So I'm sold, at the price of $6 a stick. Funny thing is, the regular tea treat oil didnt work that way for me? I even use the Tea Trea Oil Facial Cleansing Pads, which I like, but they never spot treated like this. Oh well. I'm not complaining, I will definitely continue to use and purchase. ;o)

The roll on applicator is so awesome in this! Plus it absorbs right into my skin without any weird residue leftover so I can put makeup over immediately. The smell is fantastic too. I also have had no irritation which can be a big problem for me with most other acne products. It doesn't clear deeper pimples up like salicylic acid does, but is great for mini spots.

This is HG spot treatment for me and I buy to stockup everytime I see them on sale at whole foods lol. I have used so many sypes of spot treatments from DDF, clay masks, salicylic acid, etc etc and honestly they have never wowed me in results as you use a spot treatment to get rid of a pimple faste adn expect some results and not having to wait around forever for it to heal on its own. Anyhow having gotten into organic products over the years I have become a big fan of tea tree oil which is the best spot treatment/million other used product. It is natural and never dries ouit your skin so I can reapply a millio times a day if needed to speed up belmish recovery. The only problem is using pure tea tree oil on your face si very unpleasant/somewhat greasy lol (sorry to those who enjoy it). I mean I tolerated it for a while but my god it is so strong and last forever and is hard to tolerate anywhere on the face which sucks as I had great results using it in my mositurizer too to detoxify my skin. Bottom line this rollon stick is the solution as it has tea tree and so amny other beneficial oils that really helps clear your skin from blemishes/cuts/etc/etc, Also as it's a mix the tea tree oil smell is faint and doesn't last for hours on end. Also this formula isn't greasy whatsoever and absorbs in your skin in seconds. It is so convenient and hygenic to apply sveral times a day if needed as it never dries you out and is travel friendly. It really is amazing, super cheap, and all natural whcih makes it better than anything else I have tried! :)

This works well for drying out a blemish! Overuse dries out my skin so I use in moderation. Also works well on clogged pores. I love the smell too, which was an unexpected plus. If I have a blemish I apply before bed or before makeup application and it dries very quickly. The only gripe I have is the packaging. The roller ball applicator is extremely unsanitary and I don't recommend using it directly on the skin. Instead take a Q-tip and roll it around on the ball (holding the tube upside down) and you will get enough product to use on your face. This way your product will stay uncontaminated. Otherwise a great, handy little tool to have when those pesky TOTM breakouts happen!

Love this stuff..its reaching hg status for me! I apply to my spots and they are reduced over night..none of the very expensive products designed for getting rid of spots have given me the same results as this products! I paid about 8 dollars online for mine so I find the price very cheap for something that works well for me!!

This was pretty pricey - almost $14 at my local drugstore/grocery store. But so worth it! I have very dry skin and I find when I use acne spot treatments it dries them out TOO much and makes me flaky and unattractive when you put make up on, haha. This product is ALL natural which is amazing and doesn't dry out your skin! I've been into all natural products lately because I don't like the thought of harsh chemicals wrecking or irritating my skin - and this does the job! It has a very strong scent, but I LOVE it. It's kind of like an Aromatherapy like smell. And it burns when you put it on a blemish...but in a good way. It works so good! I apply it several times a day if I have any blemishes, before during and after make up - never dries me out and is the most natural calming effective way to rid of stubborn pimples!

I have oily skin with moderate acne. I really like de products. This, however, did not work for me. I put it on blemishes, yet nothing would happen. Perhaps a reduction in redness, maybe. No shrinkage, no reduction in size nothing. I would not buy this again unfortunately. It just did not do anything for my blemishes. If you have sensitive skin, beware. This can burn skin.

This was the first tea tree oil product I've used.... I wanted to love it but it was just ok. I did not notice any imporovement or worsening in my blemishes overnight on the several occasions that I tested this out. My skin may not respond as well to TTO as others. It was worth the $5 something to try but not to rebuy. UPDATE- found this in the draw and tried it again on some stubborn chin breakouts...did a nice job drying them out..might give this another go

this stuff doesn't do a damn thing..not a freaking single thing to my acnes. I used it for couple days..but the acnes were still there..getting angrier than ever and pissing me off..what a waste of money!
