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. Itâ€™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 itâ€™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 wonâ€™t irritate sensitive noses.
Iâ€™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 sometimesâ€¦reduces the intensity of blemishes. Then there are times when Iâ€™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 daysâ€¦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 donâ€™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? Iâ€™d like toâ€¦if they change the mode of application. Otherwise, Iâ€™d rather stick to creams since they are more hygienic to use.
