It had been sitting on our tea shelves for about a year.
The same amount of time I've been tirelessly searching for the Holy Grail for acne.
Yet, I've only just discovered it.
THIS STUFF IS IT! Well, for me anyway. I have moderate acne, and I know everyone's unique, but it's done so much for me I just had to share.
I have about 8 cups a day (I re use the tea bag twice), though it does make you a little sleepy (but not overly), so it's best sipped in the afternoon & night.
I used to get a new breakout every other day or so, and within the two weeks I've been drinking Rooibos tea, I've only had 5 new pimples. However, that is including (for the girls), my period coming which always induces a whole lot of unwelcome spots. Everyone is commenting how clear my skin is, and I'm now getting to the point where I can feel comfortable without wearing makeup (non-comedogenic of course).
I can't recommend this stuff enough. It's naturally caffeine free & has so many other health benefits (inc. calcium which I need as I do not consume dairy due to my acne)
