Tea Tree Oil Products, Part I: Face Care

After learning about the many many first-aid and household uses for tea tree oil, I decided to do a little bit of research to see what kinds of beauty products exist with this ingredient. I found out that there are way too many to count, so I've decided to create a three-part series highlighting some of my favorite brands that use this fabulous essential oil in their hair, face and skin care products. I can't wait to hear what you think — and of course if you have any tea tree-infused products of your own to share, please leave a comment.

Liz Earle Spot On Roller Ball (around $15) is an amazing treatment for blemishes bites and cuts. It's made from pure tea tree oil, melissa and lavender (it's got that really strong tea tree oil smell). I've been using it for about a week now on my pimples and it's been extremely effective in fighting off bacteria.

I love the easy roller-ball application, and it doesn't sting like many other spot treatments often do. Unfortunately right now it's only available in the UK, but—shh!—there are tons of gray markets online that will deliver overseas.

For two more tea tree oil products for your skin,

Body Shop Tea Tree Oil Face Mask ($14) is a fantastic weekly treatment to help draw out impurities that reside on the surface of your skin. It refines skin, absorbs excess oil, and deep cleans. Plus it's got a great, natural and invigorating scent.

Aveda Tea Tree Oil ($12) is an amazing multi-purpose skin care product to have at home. It makes you feel exhilarated and revived and refreshed. This product is labeled as a natural fragrance, yet it is also extremely beneficial to use on your face after a shower to help ward off bacteria, fungi and blemishes as well as helping to purify oily skin. Once you try it, I know you'll love it!

These products are not new, or original. Dessert Essences does the exact same thing, and they've been doing these product for 15 years or so. One blemish stick is about $5 at the natural foods store here. It works great! Dessert Essence also has the greatest tea tree and awapuhi face wash! It cleared my face up amazing! The scrub is the most calming thing I have used ever. If you're like me, and you hate masks and scrubs, that goes out the window with Dessert Essence.

I love these products. there is no other thing is as effective and useful for acne and other type of spot removal as tea tree oil. It is used in various field of health and skin care like weight loss and for re-pigmentation in skin like for the treatment of vitiligo. The reason I like Tea tree oil because of its pigmentation properties as it is indicated at http://www.vitiligoguide.com/ that vitiligo occurs due to the depigmentation in skin. And generally consider about vitiligo that it is a chronic skin condition, treatment of this condition is quite difficult and time taking process. Tea tree oil made products are also very effective for sudden weight loss without any side effects.

They have a cheaper version of your roller ball tea tree oil on the spot treatment that i'm addicted to. its made by desert essence and its called a blemish stick. you can buy them online or at whole foods and trader joe's, they run around $6.

I used the Body Shop Tea Tree Oil (the actual oil) too. Sadly, it made my skin much redder and angrier around the pimple, and I do not have sensitive skin. Tea tree oil works only on smaller pimples, the kind that a dab of 5% or 10% benzoyl peroxide would've taken care of anyway. And DO NOT put it on pimples that have been popped. Pain, pain, I tell you! Other forums have suggested it's great for wounds. It might be better than nothing, but a regular antiseptic ointment is much better.

my favorite has always been Burts Bees Tea Tree Oil roller ball. Its about the same price and I've been using it since college. It also comes in a slightly different formula for troubled or sensitive skin.

I love tea tree. Avalon Organics makes a great tea tree shampoo and conditioner. Also, Desert Essence has a bunch of tea tree oils and products. I love their tea tree mouthwash and dental floss!

Indielove, I use Desert Essence as well. I also bought the little bottle of pure Tea Trea Oil and dab that directly on my zits (you're not supposed to use it full strength on the face, so I use a q-tip to place it just on the zit). I don't have a Trader Joes near me so I order my Desert Essence products from vitacost.com, they are cheaper than drugstore.com :)

The Body Shop's Tea Tree Oil Blemish Fade Night Lotion is AHHHmazing! It fades any redness left by past blemishes and also helps fade scars.

indielove- thanks for the heads up on Desert Essence. Just bought the blemish stick with my other things at drugstore.com. I checked for the moisturizer but they don't appear to carry that product. I am excited, because it got such great reviews!

I love that you're putting the spotlight on the miracle that is tea tree oil!For me nothing works better than pure essential tea tree oil. Put it on a Q-tip and dab it on the spot where you feel like you're about the get a MAJOR zit and almost overnight it gets rid of it! The only problem is it's quite drying, but as long as I make sure to intensively moisturize at the same time it's all good :)
