Rated 4 out of 5 by green25 Doesn't clear acne, but...
So I originally bought the travel size just to try it. I've had on and off acne for years. I immediately loved the way this cleanser tickled my skin. It smelled amazing too! But it's not a magic cleanser. It didn't clear my acne whatsoever, and whenever I use it, it doesn't feel like it fully cleaned out my pores. Paired with a good exfoliator, or on a clarisonic, it's a great cleanser at a good price. I just made my second large bottle purchase; however, not to clear my acne, but because the smell really calms me down after/before a long day. And I like the way it tingles my face. Just don't expect it to clear your acne...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Leesha So glad I decided to give it a try!
I was super skeptical about this stuff working despite the reviews, mostly because I've tried a LOT of products over the years and even the best I've used have only really been mediocre. I don't have terrible acne but it is VERY stubborn, mostly whiteheads around my mouth and nose, I've also had this huge cystic pimple on my forehead for a week that was just getting worse! I finally decided to try the tea tree oil cleanser (+ the toner and blemish fade night lotion) because of the sale and I'm so glad I did. It's only been a few days but the cystic pimple on my forehead is almost completely gone! The rest of my acne is clearing up so nicely and I haven't had any new whiteheads when usually I wake up to more in the morning. My skin is super sensitive, combo-acne prone skin, and I really love that these products don't dry out my skin like a lot do.
I'm definitely considering other tea tree products, like the mask and the lotion - I use a prescription cream for spot treatment currently but I might test out the actual tea tree oil to see if that works better. But who knows, my skin is already clearing up so nicely! Thank you body shop!

I got this and the face mask on a whim. I have hormonal acne that I cannot treat conventionally due to health reasons. These aren't blackheads, but deep, cystic acne. I have used prescription topical treatments to little avail. Anyway, I wasn't expecting much. But three weeks later, I cannot believe how much better my skin is. I made some dietary changes a few months ago, and I think this is the perfect "storm" so to speak, but I believe this regimen has a lot to do with it.
Currently, due to my monthly cycle, my face should be at its worst, and it's the calmest it's been in as long as I can remember. I only hope it stays this way and doesn't lose its effect. If you are on the fence, give it a try. The type of acne I have is difficult to treat, so if it's working on me, that says a lot.
