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?

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!
Purchased in August 2020.
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.
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!
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.
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!
Keep it in your drawer
I started using this gel after a breakout on my chin. I don't know what was causing the breakout but it lasted over 6 months before I started using this gel.
The gel goes on morning and night onto clean skin. It takes about 30 mins to absorb but after that there's no real oily residue and I'll put moisturiser over my skin.
It helped with all of the small spots, clearing them up in just a few days. It doesn't dry out my skin unless I use it excessively (I did in the first couple days). It's really good for taking away redness, drying out ...the smaller spots AND I've noticed if you use it on a forming spot it seems to stop it from coming up. Pretty good stuff! The only downside is one big spot I have. It doesn't seem to affect it and it's just going down by itself. I actually also brought the face wash in the same line and they work like magic together. It's a natural treatment and works really well. Would recommend for general spots and redness.
My holy grail for pimple treatment
This product works.
It stops pimples from forming to the red swelled bumps they can become and works very well on pre existing pimples. It dries out the pimple. It also dries up the skin around the pimple but not too much for me to be concern about and after a few days... skin is cleared.
I find that this gel is most useful in preventing pimples from forming. Whenever I feel a red bump forming beneath my skin, I dab this gel on morning (after a shower) and night (after my cleansing routine) directly on the pimple and within 2 days, the bum...p already starts to disappear. I keep using the gel untill I no longer feel the bump. This gel is also good at getting rid of the pimple redness I sometimes wake up with. I put some of this gel after my shower and within mins, I can see the redness disappear. This means that I don't need to put on extra foundation coverage. I feel more confident going to into work and not worry if someone notices red spots on my face. The smell may be overpowering for some consumers but I don't mind the tea tree scent. I suddenly started breaking out months ago (after years of not suffering from pimples) and while I have made some lifestyle changes to combat this problem, I feel that this gel treatment mitigates the problem for me. I use to get stressed when I saw pimples forming because I knew that they would grow alot, last a week and foundation can only do so much. However, this gel helps me manage my breakouts better and it has never fail me. I am confident everytime that when a pimple is forming...this product will make it disappear in a couple of days.

I had acne from last two years and I used different treatments but it worked best only in one month. I am using Thursday plantation face wash and acne gel. My face is clear only have some marks. Now I am thinking to try Thursday plantation blemish treatment. I will highly recommend this product who are suffering from acne.

Hi Wendy, thanks for your question. Our Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Medicated Gel For Acne (AUS) and our Tea Tree Blemish Gel (NZ) are different names for the same product. The differences in names exist due to labelling regulations in New Zealand.
Thursday Plantation does also produce another product under the name Tea Tree Blemish Stick, which is specifically formulated for pimple-prone skin, this product comes with a convenient sponge tip applicator which allows specific application onto pimples. It contains two key ingredients (Tea Tree Oil and Manuka Honey), Tea Tree oil dries out blemishes and breakouts, while Manuka Honey helps improve the appearance of acne scars.
