This stuff is awesome!!!!!!!! I've always used benzoyl peroxide over the last few years, usually it worked, but not on those painful, inflamed under the skin red zits. Big mistake to have put benzoyl peroxide on them as it only irritated the s*** out of them and only made it worse.
UNTIL I researched online to find something to help these embarrassing big red pimples go away asap! Just a quick stop to walgreens.....$13 for a small bottle. TEA TREE OIL = LIFESAVER
Don't be afraid to put oils on your skin as long as they are 100% natural, it soothes and calms your zits big or small (spot treatment). I spot treat zits undiluted (straight tea tree oil) and seems to work great. It can be drying if put too many times during the day though. If the spot is near your eyes it will seem like your eyes are burning for a bit. TTO will take its time, but it is only helping it! dont pop your big red zits! The smell is pretty strong when first opened and my bathroom smelled like it after a few days.... *__*
I'll never let this tea tree oil leave my side! xoxoxoxo

First, a little background on my skin: I've had issues with acne since high school and it never stopped. Recently, I had a horrible break out on my forehead and it came for no reason. My skin was dry, irritated, and nothing I tried would help (most things actually made it worse). I was at my wit's end and couldn't stand to look in a mirror. I cried over it and felt horrible. My boyfriend even managed to make me feel worse by poking fun at me for it. He didn't mean any harm and thought I'd laugh, and usually, I would have.
Now on to the review.
I'll admit it; I love tto and it seems to love me too. I've been using Jason's tto for about a month and I've seen a huge improvement in my skin.
I usually only use it at night (be warned, this stuff smells awful the first few times you open the bottle) after cleansing with an off brand of cold cream (original Pond's ingredients). I then dilute it with water 50/50 and use a cotton ball to pat it into my skin. After that, I add a couple more drops and use a q-tip for spot treatment.
I read here that tto is usually very drying, but my skin just eats it up. I've had absolutely no drying whatsoever even on the times when I do use it undiluted.
Now, on to how it works. Since I bought the cold cream to pull impurities to the surface of my skin, I wanted something that would help each spot vanish faster and leave no scar. Well, this does it! After a couple days, every active spot I've applied it to is just gone. Even better, I know it's this combo that's working for me. My mom fell in love with the cold cream, but she wasn't expecting it to pull anything out. It did and she came to me worried and fretting. I dabbed some of my tto mixture on the single spot she had (lucky) and within two days, it was gone, no scar, no nothing. Her skin is again perfect.
Bonus: my mom looked at me yesterday morning before I took her to work and she commented on how much clearer my skin was. I literally ran to the mirror and my jaw fell open in shock. My acne scars had been fading and I hadn't even noticed! I was so busy with the active stuff that I hadn't even looked at the scars. I looked at a picture I'd taken before starting treatment and realized it was absolutely true.
This is not a miracle use-it-once-and-get-perfect-skin-forever product. But! It has improved my skin greatly with perseverance and patience. I will continue to use this regime and look forward to finally having lovely skin.

I have used this for about a week. I have sensitive skin and i had no reaction other then a weird feeling when it was on. As everyone should know the smell is pretty bad but eventually you get used to it. I would put this on and it would feel like my skin was pulsing. SOunds awful right ? well i took it off expecting a rash.. nothing. But i did notice it cleared up a blemish i had. So the next day i tried it again and fought though a bit of the weird pulsing feeling and still had no reaction. It Did help clear up acne by drying it out but then again after the acne was just a red mark, the skin was really dry. After exfoliating my skin looked way better and like i said the acne had gone down.
This works as a really good spot treatment but any bit on the rest of the skin and you look like your face wants to shed a layer of skin. =p

Yes, it stinks. Yes, it works.
This is great for clearing blemishes. It is drying, so don't go overboard and use too much. Besides, the smell might kill you before it dries your skin out. Wet the end of a q-tip with a couple drops and dab on blemishes. Use 1-2X/day and inflammation will start to shrink within 24 hours.

I did a science experiment in high school testing various products' efficiency at killing one type of bacteria that causes acne. This did better than anything else I could buy at the drug store. However, when I try to use it on my pimples it has no result. I will apply it to a pimple and the pimple will just continue to grow unimpeded. As well, even extremely diluted tea tree oil turns my sensitive skin red for days. It did well in my science experiment and seems to work for some people, so I am not totally panning it, but it didn't work for me.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Olive Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
At first, this product seemed to work. It reduced my pimple size very slowly, day by day. I noticed that the bigger pimples went away, while very small pimples popped up every where else. It clogged my pores on my forehead and chin. I had small skin colored bumps everywhere. It was disgusting. The smell is horrible and so is the result.

For reference I have oily, acne-prone, sensitive skin.
I have been using this for about 6 months now to spot treat pimples. They literally disappear overnight when I apply this and do not dry my skin out. It has helped with old acne scarring as well. I put a few drop into my witch hazel toner and it helps to make my face smoother. It has a strong smell but it really doesn't bother me. Also, whenever I feel a cold sore forming I apply a small dot to the area and no more cold sore tingle, better than Abreva in my opinion and lasts forever. Will definitely buy again!

This essential oil has many different uses as an antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and as an antiseptic. Although most people will associate tea tree oil with its medicinal properties, but did you know that it is also believed to have beneficial beauty properties as well?
Tea tree oil is no stranger to traditional medicine and has been used for years to treat various viruses, fungi, and bacteria, something that most ingredients and chemicals are not able to do alone. Tea tree oil is used to treat minor skin infections, cuts, bruises, acne, and eczema.
As wonderful as it is for the skin, this essential oil isnít just limited to skin irritations, it is also used as a healing facial cleanser and face mask. Tea tree oil has also been found to be successful at treating dry scalp and dandruff, and is used in many shampoos and conditioners. For dry or damaged hair, add a few drops of pure oil to your scalp comb through put a cap on so your pores can open up then use your regular shampoo and your dry scalp/dandruff will be banished. It also unclogs hair follicles thus helping my hair grow. The tingling effect also stimulates blood flow and helps with hair growth as well.
With its antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, it's no wonder that it is used for the treatment of dry skin, eczema, and psoriasis.
fungal nail infections
Although some studies show that tea tree oil is slightly less effective than benzoyl peroxide for curing mild to moderate acne, it generally has fewer side effects. Some of these side effects include: stinging, burning, itching, and dryness.
When using tea tree oil as a home remedy for acne you will need to dilute it in pure aloe vera gel at a ratio of 2-3 drops of tea tree oil per one ounce of aloe vera.

My skin has been cleared by using this product. iherb.com has the best price. Use code XIG796 to get $5 off. It has a tingling feeling when you apply it. I like the result but don't like the smell. I don't use it in the morning because the smell is too strong. But I use it every night. My bf hated the smell also. So I don't use it when he is around. It definitely is working. Be careful don't get it into your eyes. It hurts.

For some reason, my skin has been freaking out of the past few months, and no other products have worked to clear up the acne on my chin. BP and salicylic acid just turn my skin bright red and cause peeling, so I decided to try tea tree oil and I'm so glad I did!
You really do have to be patient for this and *do not pick at your skin*! I dab it on with a q-tip once or twice a day, undiluted, and my zits shrink little by little until they disappear altogether about 7-10 days later. The best part is that my skin doesn't peel or dry out, so it's much easier to apply concealer and foundation to cover my blemishes in the meantime.
The smell sucks, there's no denying that. I've just gotten used to it by now.

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.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
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.

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.
Age: 30-35 Skin: Dry, Fair Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Brown
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...
