I have used salacylic acid for my acne.(i have medium acne.) ive heard that teatree oil works well too, for some people. Has anyone had good results with teatree oil? What is a good brand to use?

I have only been using Tee Tree Oil for a short amount of time (7-8 days), but I am happy so far with the small progress I've made. I use Thursday's Plantation brand. Another person posted great results with this brand as well. Hope this helps.

Good luck!

I guess using anything with the word "oil" in it on acne makes me nervous. I recently bought some tea tree oil, but I haven't tried it yet. Testament, do you use it all over your face like an astringent, or just on pimples?

Well just on the pimples and rashy parts (on my face thats pretty much everywhere). On my shoulders and back I try to get everywhere as best I can.

Hope this helps. Gl!

I 've had excellent results using Aura Cacia Tea Tree Oil 100% pure. Right now i had to settle for a some stuff i bought at walmart (the place i usually buy it at was out of stock)
I'm using Spring Valley 100%pure now and it seems to be doing its job (but i still perfer my usual brand )
