How to use:
Dot this handy stick with pure organic tea tree oil on targeted areas to soothe and clear skin. Use under make-up or wear alone.
It comes in a translucent, green cylindrical tube with a tiny screw cap that ensures zero spillage. It’s slim (slightly thicker than a pen) and will fit easily into the smallest of purses. The applicator is a small, round net-like material through which the product is dispensed. This controls the flow of the product but it’s such a pain to use! Most of the time, I have to press the applicator with my fingernail to get some product out. Earlier this used to come in a squeezy plastic case that was far easier to use. Also, I find the process of dotting it directly onto pimples very unhygienic.
It is a light greenish liquid which comes out clear when applied onto the skin. It has a very refreshing herbal fragrance that I really like. The fragrance stays for 10 mins or so but is mild and won’t irritate sensitive noses.
I’d bought this years ago (when I was in high school I guess) and found it to be really effective. So I re-purchased it with a lot of high hopes. I now have mixed reviews about this product. It works really well sometimes…reduces the intensity of blemishes. Then there are times when I’ve felt that it did nothing at all to my skin. So, all I can say is that it is a matter of trial and error. Since, Oriflame has offers on this frequently, do give it a shot and see if it works for you. And I have to mention that it does what it claims: it does help when you have mild acne and it also worked better when I was a teenager. Sigh! Those were the days…huh?
What I liked about Oriflame Purifying Blemish Solver:
- Sturdy, spill-proof and travel-friendly packaging
- Mild yet refreshing herbal scent
- Reduces intensity of blemishes
- Heals mild acne
- Works well on teenage skin
- Available on offer
- One tube lasts a long time since very little product is required
What I don’t like about Oriflame Purifying Blemish Solver:
- Unhygienic application
- Difficult to dispense product
- Does not work on all blemishes or moderate acne
Will I re-purchase? I’d like to…if they change the mode of application. Otherwise, I’d rather stick to creams since they are more hygienic to use.
