Uses natural ingredients
Tea tree oil is naturally antibacterial
I have been using this gel in accordance with the tea tree foaming cleanser every night (& phisohex roughly once a week either on its own or before the tea tree wash), as well as the matching face cream/moisturiser probably 3 nights a week (honestly really lazy with this step)
Either moisturise just after washing or somewhere along the line to make sure it’s been a while between that & the gel.
These 3 products can be bought as a trio from chemist warehouse or Priceline.
I was using the gel on it’s own before but & often using other overnigh...t acne treatments but hard to tell what’s what so for once I’m going to fully stick to a line of products for a decent amount of time! I think my skins overall texture might be improving, I’ve been using it for I believe a little over 3 weeks, maybe had 2 nights where I didn’t apply the gel in total, I’m going to persist with its use. It does seem to work quite well overnight & does a great job of drying the spot out, therefore reducing it ALOT & really cuts down the longevity. But it doesn’t dry out my skin & I apply a lot, even in areas with no acne I like to cover the general area if it has a cluster of spots. Maybe by doing so the tea tree is helping draw out what’s under the skin I’m not sure. I use overnight only as forgetful for the daytime. I have noticed some purging, I generally don’t get pus but have had some acne in my private part. My chin/jaw/lower cheeks (main problem area) seem to be clearing up. However I’ve been getting break outs higher on my chin & forehead where I don’t get that often. So I’m putting it down to the products together working to purge so that’s why I’m going to persist. Not sure if these products will keep acne at bay in the long run, can anyone comment on this?
Purchased at Chemist Warehouse Online Store.
dried out my bumpy face and smoothen my jawline
Every good thing that happened drastically with my skin is a result of this heaven-sent product. I put this after a light moisturizer and leave it on. It's a part of my last skincare routine and I didn't encounter any problem!

Dries out blemishes really well. It's very fast and very effective on skin. The smell is really pleasant and on tube lasts a very long time I have been using mine for about 4 months :)
Been using the plantation foam wash, toner and medicated gel for a week I suffer rosacea and occasionally acne breakouts so far my skin is clear I noticed a difference from the first use would highly recommend this product it's amazing.
Purchased in June 2019 at Coles Supermarkets for $13.00.
This works like magic
This was given to me as a gift and now I’m about to buy mine cuz it works like magic... when I apply it I don’t see the acne there the next morning
Purchased in February 2017.
it works slowly for old acne, but it really makes them good.
for new ones it effects quickly:)
i really recommend it
Not good at all ...
I have adult acne and been using Benzoyl-based gels like Benzac. Decided to try this medication thinking its all herbal and less harmful than the more chemical-based ones. Realized I was wrong after I saw no difference on finishing the first tube and going onto the second. The occurrence of pimples and the remnant scars are same as it would be without any treatment. Benzac in its lower strength formula would have taken care of it all within a week. So yeah, not buying another pack any time soon!
I’ve been having acne under my skin . I’ve never had this problem before I use to have a perfect skin . I’ve been using it for a few days now and my face is totally clear..
My savior on treating my cystic acne and whiteheads!
I had been using this gel to treat my pimples like whiteheads most especially for my few cystic acne. It does really work! I use it everyday and everynight and just 1 week, it healed my cystic acne. It dried up the acnes and reduce the inflammation.
This works by drying out the pimple. I found it took about 3/4 days before I could see a difference which isn’t so impressive to me. Been using it consistently for 3 months roughly because I wanted to give it a chance. Would rather use tea tree oil for faster results.
Im using this product a week ago and it dries out pretty quickly within 2 days. The pimples still there but it dramatically reduced compared to the ones I have used before.
I use this on my cystic pimples and it works amazingly. I am glad i found something more natural than corticosteroids to apply to my pimples. It shrinks them very quickly and peels the dead skin on top and is very soothing.
Calling and Quick Acting
I've been using this gel twice a day for over 1 and a half years. I partner it with Thursday plantation face wash and their moisturiser. While This product is great for calming redness within a couple of hours and depending on the severity sometimes minutes, I don't think it actually does much beyond that. Calms the pimple and in my case cystic acne, reduces redness massively and dries it out but does not aid -in my opinion- in the healing process although I'm no expert. Beyond that, it Goes on wet, dries amazingly and absorbs into the skin unl...ike any gel I've ever used. I won't ever not use it because it's a calmer and less harsh alternative to straight tea tree oil which can burn and hurt. My face I swear rejoices when I put this gel on it. The smell is also beyond soothing!
Not impressed would give it a miss
I managed to finish this product but it did not work for my skin type (dry) would not recommend if you have dry skin. I find it did not target or activate on my skin (it felt like a cream).
It's really perfect gel can't live without it
It's good for acne with sensitive skin works gently without harsh chemicals smells good love it and
Definitely Would buy it again
Questions & Answers
if this gel can be used with moisturizer or sunblock??
Is gel good for hormonal acne??
Is the Gel good for oily sensitive skin?
Yes it is my skin can be very oily and I find with this it’s definitely not a oily product but also not a drying one of that makes sense I’ve only used it a few times now but it seems to be shrinking my hormonal acne which is a good sign!!
