    Post Tea Tree Oil!!!

    I just bought it and put it on my really bad acne around 2 hours ago and its already looking a lot better! I dont know if its my imagination but does anyone have experience with this stuff? I bought 100% pure tea tree oil... Wondering how quick it worked for everyone else.

    I've heard its an immediate pimple killer, but I've not tried it yet. When I think of something like this I think of dry skin and long lasting red marks. Glad it worked for you.

    i think it works ok it you use it once or twice on a zit then stop or it makes things bad. i would only use it on cystic type zits once after they've surfaced and been popped.

    YESSSS I luv tea tree oil as a zit blaster! If I notice a zit brewing up i dab on a bit of the stuff with a cotton bud and I swear it's improved by morning and heals quicklier... but now reading the messages that say it can give you scars I am now very worried!

    Something I dont understand about Tea tree oil... Everyone says how it burns and stuff and causes red marks or causes rashes and scars... I thought these are the other things that Tea Tree oil is supposed to help heal?

    sushie I agree- I think it's supposed to deal with those problems not cause them. I have sensitive skin and dont find it burns at all- but I dont put it all over my face! just on individual pimples if I want to blast them.

    I'm a tea-trea oil user, and have extremely sensitive skin. The trick is to dab it on an EMERGING pimple. Like Jezebel said, it heals by the next morning. Takes about 3 to 5 days for some zits to go away. I don't recommend using it for more than 4 or 5 days because then it WILL BURN YOUR SKIN and leave a red mark that takes weeks to heal. The trick is using it on emerging cysts and discontinuing use as soon as you see improvement.

    BTW I use 100 percent tea trea oil.

    Every other pimple blaster burns like retin a and diffren etc etc so if it works use it to blast a pimple just dont put it all over your face the same way you wouldnt put those other things all over your face

    Hey, so far some of what people said is true. I am getting dry skin. But my acne is going down so much that Id rather have dry skin first then when the acne goes down, Ill deal with the dryness... But then again, there are some red spots. They dont seem that bad right now- but are these the marks that people think will turn into scars? Cause I think I will ease up on the stuff if it is.
