This is okay, not a miracle worker.
I don't think it has a high enough concentration content, only 15%. I use it and it takes about 4 days for it to remove a blemish. Even then, my pimples get infected. If they don't clear fast it's going to be over a week before it clears. I think this would work much better at about a 50% level. It also stings my face, especially when it's already irritated.
not a miracle worker, but i like it anyway...
i've been using this since 2006-2007 when a classmate of mine told me how it got rid of all her acne, and i've been repurchasing it since. i think it's good for spot treatment and it's nice to have something made of tea tree oil since i use Clinique (chemicals) for the rest of my acne treatment. not a miracle worker, but effective enough, and i think it's pretty mild/gentle.
i would have given this a full four stars, but i HATE the packaging. it's been the same since 2006-ish and i'm pretty sure i'm not the only one who has issues with the packaging. it's so hard to get product out of the bottle (i'm not talking about the child-lock, i know how to open a child-lock). that thingamajig on the bottle. what on EARTH is that? you can't even tell where the product leaks out from the bottle. i normally stick a q-tip on the opening and let it soak in the product (if nothing comes out of it, i shake it a bit). even worst, some days, nothing will come out of the designated hole where the product's supposed to come out from, and yet, it leaks from another source. i'd be sticking the q-tip on the opening, and then a significant amount of the oil will just start leaking (not in drips, LEAKS) out of nowhere. then i tilt the bottle again and nothing comes out. i'm really confused! the bottle is so random. grrrrh! :<
then again, the entire tea tree oil range has weird packaging. i also have issues with the facial wash's bottle cap (broke on the second day i used it). i guess it's a good product: i see people rave about it online all the time, my friends swear by it, and Oriflame made a dupe of it (but then again Oriflame is always duping other products, everything from Biotherm Aquasource to TBS Nutragenics to YSL Touche Éclat to Guerlain Météorites to Maybelline Fruity Jelly). but seriously: the packaging is a nightmare.
there are some nights when i'm too tired to do anything but brush my teeth and wash my face before bed. and the packaging makes me want to skip the spot treatment and just go straight to bed. then the next day, i'll have a pimple. i hate how the packaging makes me NOT want to even have to deal with using it.
