Rated 5 out of 5 by BodyShopFan Best Acne Solution I've Found in 20+ Years
I'm glad that The Body Shop now allows us to post reviews, because I have always wanted to share about how this product has literally changed my life! I have fought cystic acne since I was a teen, having tried countless prescription (including oral and topical) and over-the-counter medications.
A year ago, at age 28, I decided to try this product out since it's blemish-fade formula promised to minimize the scars from my ongoing breakouts. To my surprise, it went far beyond this purpose to calm my skin with its nourishing moisturizer and STOP my cystic breakouts!
Even more surprising it actually kills acne that has started to form and stops cystic acne from forming because causes the clumped dead skins to rise to the skin's surface rather than becoming lodged deep into your pores. My skin is now all clear and acne-free 99% of the time; I call this a miracle product!
At $18 per 1-ounce bottle, the price is steep, so I wait for buy-two-get-one sales and buy a half dozen or so at a time. I only wish The Body Shop would make this in a larger bottle (better yet, a squeeze bottle so I can get all the lotion out) so I wouldn't have to buy so many of these little bottles at a time (each lasts me approx a month). I tried other Body Shop Tea Tree products (the face wash, the SPF-mattifying lotion, the face mask) but none work as magically as the Blemish Fade Night Lotion.
Another great thing? You will see results within two days of using this product whether this product will work for you (TIP: Ask the store to give you a small sample to take home to try. If it works for you like it does for me, you will not regret buying this amazing product!).

I purchased this 3 weeks ago. I have had cystic acne since I was 14 (I am now 25). This product is making old scars less visible. I used to use neutrogena but, it never really did much for me. The bottle of the product is small, but 3 weeks have gone by and I still have more than half of the bottle full.

I recently just purchased this with the tea tree facial wash and clearing lotion. I am 25 and I have had acne since middle school. My skin is very oily, and I do use foundation on a daily basis to cover up. I have a lot of scarring, and between the combination of the two, my redness was reduced, as well as my break outs! I have only been using this for about 2 weeks and this is honestly the best my skin has ever looked and I have tried so many over the counters, but nothing has ever worked this well! I just went and purchased the face mask, gel, oil, and scrub today. I am so happy I found something that finally works!

I bought this because my sister told me about it and her skin has been looking amazing recently! She's using it to make sure her skin looks perfect for her wedding. She claimed that it'd work overnight to reduce red pimples and was starting to work in the long term for scars (she doesn't really have any though). So I shelled out the cash, not really expecting anything. But whoa! First off, my skin feels delicately baby soft after applying it, which my boyfriend loves. Second, it definitely reduces zits overnight! And third, I'm seeing an overall improvement in my skin tone and evenness-- my skin looks "good" for once, and I only started using it about 10 days ago. I'm not one to promote consumerism, but seriously, buy this one!
