I have another blemish control product to review because I’m so concerned about my skin and do you know any woman who doesn’t? I can’t stand looking at any blemishes on m face but sadly it keeps coming. So, the product that I’m going to talk about in this post is the Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Blemish Gel. Thursday Plantation? Really? Haha that’s a weird name don’t you think?
I got the product from my March 2015 Modbox and if you don’t know what Modbox is you can click this. It’s basically a monthly beauty box subscription and I’m not subscribing to it anymore because I don’t really like the products that I got. But it’s pretty inexpensive and you can try it if you don’t want to spend hundreds on a beauty box.
Anyway, let’s get back business. Before I start talking about the product, let me tell you one or two things about my skin condition. It’s super oily, not just in the T zone, it’s oily all over my face. I’m very prone to acne and whiteheads are my worst enemies. The name of the product is pretty self-explanatory. It’s supposed to help with blemishes a.k.a zit, acne and breakouts.
The packaging is handy and nothing fancy, does the job and pretty hygienic. It contains tea tree oil: it’s the key ingredients in most acne-controlling product. I prefer tea tree oil to benzyl peroxide because benzyl peroxide can be quite harsh on my sensitive skin. If you don’t like the smell of tea tree oil, this might not be the product for you because the tea tree oil smell can be quite prominent but it will be gone after few minutes. It’s a clear gel so it won’t mess with your foundation because it won’t show.
I’ve been using Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Blemish Gel religiously for nearly two months now and I think it’s an OK product. It’s not a miracle worker but I can say that I don’t have to worry about zit popping out anymore because this product is really good at preventing any breakouts from forming a head. Do you get what I mean? The zit will stay blind and the product also helps to soothe the skin and it will quicken the healing process.
When I see a zit is about to make an appearance, I will apply this product on the problematic area after I washed and toned my face. I used Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Blemish Gel day and night without any problem. Be sure to use hydrating moisturizer afterward because it can get pretty dry on the area where I applied the gel. So, that’s another thing that you need to know because this gel might be too dry for people with dry skin. Also, it can get quite itchy if you apply too much.
If I have to find few things to complain about this gel, I will say that I wish that it could heal my zit faster. It usually takes good 2-3 days before I can see dramatic change to the appearance on my skin. And also it did nothing to help with my whiteheads.
That’s all. So, I hope this review is helpful and let me know in the comment down below if you know any blemish gel that can work miracle because I would love to know.
Will I repurchase? No. Mainly because I think there might be something better out there and I just haven’t discovered it yet. Da….
Price: RM22.30 ( Depends on where you find it)
