Part of my daily routine

Tea tree oil calms down my skin and keeps it relatively clear. I sporadically use it in the pure form on a spot because of the scent. But I do use a night cream with tea tree oil in there (from the Dutch brand 'de tuinen') on a daily basis. It's not the magic cure by itself for me, but it certainly appears to help.

Absolutely LOVE this. It's kinda strong though. I made a d.i.y. toner with it too. :smileys_n_people_179:

jealous of others' success

Tea tree oil really does no good for me. I hear it is like that for some people. I wish it worked as well as it did for other people, but when I apply it my skin gets so angry at me and I break out. Irritating, drying and does no good. HOWEVER! I will say that I seem to take it well in non leave-on products like cleansers, as long as it a helper, not the main active ingredient, so I don't avoid it if I see it on a label for masks and cleansers.

Overnight results
I put this on a new and existing pimples last night (I only have hormonal acne down the side of my chin) and this morning they were flattened and dried out. I've never seen this good a result from BP so I'm pretty happy with this! I first diluted it with jojoba but now just putting it directly with a q tip :)

good for adult acne & redness.
most products make me break out and turn my skin bright red but pure tea tree oil seems to work quite well. only been a short time but my skin is calming down quite a bit. ( killing my demodex mites?) make sure to try pure tea tree oil only. downside- smells strong

best SPOT treatment ever
It the best thing out there for spot treatment! Been using it for years and none of the drugstore spot-treatment works as well. I use diluted Australian Tea Tree Oil. In order to avoid irritation: 1) use only diluted tea tree oil 2) use only as spot treatment and not all over your face 3) apply as last skincare step, after moisturizer

tea tree oil with dove sensitive
I'm not promoting dove products or whatever I am just a grateful that this combine product work wonders on my skin. I have been using tea tree oil and dove for a month now and it really is effective on my skin. In the morning I wash my face with DOVE beauty bar the one who has SENSITIVE label and rinse my face with cold water. At night before I sleep this is the time where I wash my face again with dove , rinse with warm water, dry my face using a towel and I massage my face with few drops of tea tree oil. I let it sleep overnight. It is my daily routine and it cleared my face within a month.I am 19 years old and I have acne since 13 .I am also living in the Philippines so the weather is really hot and rainy so finding acne treatments that work is so difficult because of this weather conditions. I have tried different products on my skin that worsened my acne.. Acne sucks it really destroys my confidence to the point that I am afraid to look myself in the mirror so I want to help other teenagers with acne problems like me by sending this review and hopefully this will help you too.

try it!
made an account just to review this, really is worth trying, my skin has flared up horribly over the last two months with cystic acne and awful textured skin, have never tried tea tree oil before and bought some as was feeling desperate and no joke skin is clearing so fast, dries out active acne and calms the redness of scars, I used it as a spot treatment and, my preferred way, by diluting a couple of drops into a small amount and using as a toner. be careful if you have dry skin to dilute loads / use very topically but seems to be working great for me

Ah Tea Tree oil
I had a difficult and somewhat traumatic history with tea tree oil. When I was 15, covered in rancid hormonal acne, our family doctor recommended tea tree. He was convinced it was the miracle I was searching for. Bought a bottle, and as instructed applied neat directly to affected areas (which meant most of my face). Oh sweet merciful Zeus was that a mistake. Within minutes my face was on fire. I decided to tough it out overnight. By morning my face was raging and I had literal sores on my face similar to road rash. NEVER. AGAIN. Fast forward 11 years later. My skin has improved a lot since the teen years, but I still have moderate acne and nasty scars. Yay. I'm cleaning through the boxes of spot-treatment crap I'd bought over the years and came across the same bottle of evil tea tree that dissolved my face. I put it on the side in the 'get rid of pile', but decided last minute to keep it. So my main problem was moisturisers. My skin is stupidly dry, but moisturisers seem to make it worse! If only there was something antibacterial I could add! Hello tea tree my nemesis. After washing my face with warm water, I decided to be brave and add a few drops of this stuff to my Simple night cream. Slathered it on, waited for the pain. There was mild stinging on the spottier regions, but nothing fatal. Woke up next morning and my skin looked great! The redness was down, any zits I had popped were not infected, and no new spots had appeared. I decided to expand a bit more. I added some to my cream cleanser on a night were I was rather drunk and couldn't be bothered to cleanse properly. Slathered it on, wipes it off with cotton wool. Same effect! Calm skin, no new zits. Now I can't be without it. The key is to dilute. Dilute like your life depends on it!! While sometimes I alternate what I cleanse with, using a moisturiser mixed with tea tree oil after is my must. I've recently decided to get braver. Once or twice a week, I'll either have a bath or steam my pores. I'll throughly wet my face, rub a few drops into my palms and lightly rub it onto my problem areas (cheeks, chin, jaw). I'll leave it on for about 5 mins, then wash it off. This leaves my skin really glowing, for whatever reason it gives me a youthful pink-cheeked look. Loooove! Moral of the story - mix with other products. Im not going to lie, my acne is not 100% gone. I still get spots. BUT, they are less likely to get infected, go down quicker, and I swear this stuff is even fading my scars. I definitely get less breakouts, that includes blackheads, whiteheads, and the dreaded cysts. Only downside is the potent odour, but other than having to tolerate my boyfriend moaning about how my face smells, who cares!! Definitely give this stuff a try folks, I totally misjudged it.

I havent used this product enough to come to a concrete decision on whether it has been good for my skin but so far it definitely does dry up spots, flatten bumps overnight, gets rid of oil and leaves my skin feeling fresh. I understand some people have very sensitive and acne-prone skin therefore i think this oil is NOT for them. It is VERY strong and drying and can actually make your acne worse. if you have dry and flaky skin the oil will not be able to penetrate deep into your pores and work its magic. To make it less strong you can dilute it with tap water or something else of your choice so that it doesn't burn or damage your skin too much. it is definitely catered more for oily skin types.
