Acne can be pretty embarassing, right? So it was a month ago when I suffered from breakouts. I’m not really sure why, but my pimples just popped in one by one as if someone called them for a meeting. Argh! I’m not really used to having pimples during my school days. It was so lucky of me that when I do, it would only be just one tiny pimple. It was during my pregnancy on my first trimester, I have to suffer from like around five pimples at the same time. I had no choice because I can’t do anything about it because my OB GYNE told me not to use anything on my face because some chemical ingredient might harm my baby.
Going back, a month ago I had few breakouts that depressed me. I’ve read that the tea tree oil is a magic oil. So I’ve decided to give it a try. So when I had the chance to visit The Body Shop, I went straight ahead and got myself a tea tree oil. For around 500 Php (more or less.) Sorry I can’t remember the exact price.
Okay, so first of, I used it right away when I got home after I finished my night routine. Cleanse, exfoliate, tone, before moisturizer, I then with a small amount, drop on my fingertips, and put it on the affected areas. It was a bit stingy with that minty scent plus a little cooling sensation afterwards. Yes, it’s an oil but you won’t feel oily when you put it on your face. It’s a little watery and it is easily absorbed by the skin so it won’t be bothersome like some other creams. I also mixed few drops of the oil to my toner and used it twice a day. Then a week passed but I don’t see any results yet. Another pimple pops out on my face and I was very sad. Really. That time I was a little tired to do my night routine for I thought that nothing would change. I felt like I was so ugly and that my face looks terrible. Then, I read reviews again. Most would say that it would take 2 weeks to see the results. You just have to be patient. So I guess I really have to wait for the results. Well, it actually took me 3 weeks but I’m happy that it is really effective. My pimples are now dry and becoming lighter. I’m so happy that it looks like it wouldn’t leave a mark on my face. I’ll still be using it until my pimples will vanished. I would say this one is amazing.
