Review: Australian Bodycare On the Spot Stick

'There is nothing worse than the last minute breakout that appears moments before that big occasion. This easy to use Tea Tree Oil and Witch-hazel formula will quickly reduce the breakout-causing bacteria and diminish redness.'

Tea Tree Oil is a natural essential oil steam extracted from the Melaleuca alternifolia tree grown in Australia. It is well known for its natural antibacterial, antiseptic, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. The company, Australian Bodycare only use Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree Oil) which out of the 110 different varieties of Tea Tree Oil has been proven to contain the most beneficial natural properties for healthy skin and hair. 

Australian Bodycare's Spot Stick is packaged in a 10ml tube with a rollerball. The rollerball design makes application easy and you apply this directly onto blemishes. The antibacterial properties of the spot stick mean this is a hygenic method as it is 'self-cleaning.' Australian Bodycare recommend applying this 4-5 times daily, onto any problem areas.

The Spot Stick contains a combination of essential oils - Tea Tree Oil to cleanse and fight bacteria, Geranium for antiseptic and toning properties, Vetiver for stimulating and anti-stress and Lavender for calming and relaxing. It also contains Witch-hazel to cool and calm the skin. This combination of oils gives the spot stick a strong, herbal scent - the most prominent being the tea-tree. You only need to use a little of this on blemishes so the scent isn't actually noticeable for too long.

I've been using this for years now and can honestly say, it works. the tea tree and essential oils speed up the healing process of spots and dry them out, especially the dreaded under-the-skin ones, but because of the natural oils, it's not at all harsh on the skin. It really soothes and calms spots. It's not a magic 'quick-fix' and it's not going to make spots disappear, but applied regularly it will help to diminish spots, both in size and redness. Although this is primarily a spot stick, the tea tree and antiseptic properties also work perfectly on mosquito bites, cuts and stings so it's a great all-round product. I wouldn't be without mine and whenever I get a spot, I instantly reach for this.

Australian Bodycare On the Spot Stick can be purchased online from Look Fantastic and costs £6.
