Re: tea tree oil and oily skin?

^ I have oily skin and use it regularly. Even though it's tea tree "oil".. it has no oily feel and will not make your skin oily. It's just a technical term since it's extracted oil. It works great..

I use the body shop's mattifying moisture tea tree oil gel. It feels great! I really like it and I have oily skin.

Re: tea tree oil and oily skin?

I use tea tree oil from The Body Shop. I really like it. You can either use a cotton swab, or I put it on my fingers and smooth just a little over my problem areas in the morning. It's a small bottle and in liquid form. It's not an astringent, but just a liquid you apply to your face. I also really like their Tea tree oil face mask.. it's good if you are having a bad breakout because it soothes the acne and helps minimize inflammation.

Re: tea tree oil and oily skin?

thanks both of you!

im thinking about giving it a try. although, what ive been doing lately is using the aspirin mask at night and then applying hydrogen peroxide to my active pimples. i must say it has definately dried out and healed some of them pretty quickly!!

Re: tea tree oil and oily skin?

I have oily skin and have been using Tea Tree Oil, for a little over a month now.
I order mine on-line from a vitamin supplier. I use a Tea Tree Oil facial wash, twice a day and follow up with the liquid on a cotton pad and used like a toner. I have been having excellent results with the Tea Tree Oil and am going to continue with it.
I also have been doing the aspirin masks about every other night!!
