Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick

June 13, 2010

Burt’s Bees Herbal Blemish Stick ($9, 0.26oz) contains 10 effective natural herbal ingredients including willowbark, nature’s version of salicylic acid, which clarifies and gently exfoliates skin to clear pores and help prevent breakouts. “Combined with tea tree and juniper oils, known for their antiseptic and astringent qualities, and calendula to reduce inflammation and redness, this concentrated formula keeps your skin clear, naturally.” To use,  apply the blemish stick directly to the affected areas 2 to 3 times daily.  Do not apply more because additional applications may irritate your skin due to the formula’s potent botanical ingredients. The effective ingredient is tea tree oil which is best know for its antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Recommendation: If you’re looking for a product with natural ingredients you’ll like this. It is not too expensive and you will see results when used a few times a day. If you can also get over the strong smell give this a try but I prefer Origins Spot Remover.

At $9 this blemish stick is not too expensive considering 99% of this formula is natural. The first thing you’ll notice is the unpleasant scent it gives off. It is pretty strong and reminds me of a strong smelling eucalyptus leaves, something similar to that. You will feel a stinging sensation but it does not last very long. You will need to apply this a few times a day for it to work not once a day. With the rollerball it is very easy to apply the treatment onto the skin. I recommend for you to clean your skin thoroughly before applying this blemish treatment because skin cells and bacteria may get into the liquid because of the rollerball. I was able to see things floating inside of my blemish stick.
