Tea Tree Oil Skin Ointment

This ointment is gentle on the skin and I do not have to dilute it down like liquid tea tree oil. Love this product.

Desert Essence Tea Tree Oil Skin Ointment



Perfect and non drying

I love this balm to use on my face and for my teenage son.
It works without drying out like the tight feeling when just using tea tree oil, and the smell is not as strong either which is a bonus for my son.

Hormonal Acne... Gone!

Recently recovered from amenorrhea and cue the hormonal acne. I tried several high end topical treatments and nothing worked. Used this for ONE NIGHT and woke up with significantly less acne. A week in and it's all gone!

- Kayla Hembree


So good for exfoliating!!

- Victoria Paige

Love it.

I've had this only for about two weeks and I love it already. It has a good texture, lovely tea tree scent and is moisturizing and seems to heal some little patches of eczema. A little goes a long way, too. Will buy again!

- Harley S

just okay

if you don't like to mix your own essential oil treatments then maybe you would want to buy this. However, I can make this very easily so I'm not sure if I will buy it again. The jar also leaks all over everything and one time it spilled in my hiking bag.

Great Product

I like the way this feels when I put it on. It is moisturizing, smells good, cleansing, cooling.... And I think it has been helping me with some areas I tend to break out

Tea Tree Oil Skin Ointment

works very well on my dry skin

- Claudia J


This stuff smells & feels amazing! Would definitely re-purchase. You only need a small amount & it goes a long way.

- Kylee F

Love it!!!

At first, I thought this was a spot treatment but it actually can be used as a healing balm anywhere! I used it as a face moisturizer when my skin was feeling dry and woke up with smooth, soft skin!

- Mahika H

These are great!

Kind of like a stridex acne pad....they are a little rough. They came moist and I used them over my entire face. I liked that it roughed my face up a bit and broke up some of that dead skin.. Actually, they really made my complexion nice. I was just looking for a little relief from some acne around my chin. I can't say how well they worked for that acne because now I know it's hormone related but I really liked the way my skin looked while using them so I would use it for that alone.

- Hollie V


This has a nice scent and is moisturizing but is also very greasy. It doesn’t absorb well and leaves quite the shine

- Sarah Reister

Son with eczema

Love this for my son who is allergic every eczema over the counter cream I have tried. Smells great doesn't cause any irritation and even my daughter without any skin issues loves for me to use it on her also.

- Melissa Haynes VanBeveren


It is very moisturizing without making your face too oily. It doesn't smell too strong and helps prevents any new pimples from forming. I love it!

- Morgan Balazs


This little jar has worked wonders for my cystic acne. I've used products with salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, but they don't compare to what this ointment has done for me! Thank you for a wonderful, effective, affordable product that has helped me get some confidence back.

- Brittney Kandell


I didn't really expect this stuff to do much; I've been using other tea tree oil products to little effect. I had the worst breakout I've had in ages, and it was just getting worse and worse.


First of all, it's the cleanest list of ingredients you could possibly ask for. No crap whatsoever. I used it to moisturize my face before bed a few nights ago, and woke to find the angry blemishes finally calming down: redness fading, no new acne, and scabs healing. I've been using it a couple times a day this week and it's made a radical difference. Best of all, it really moisturizes and heals!

- Natasha

Adult acne not solved!

I've been looking for cleansing pads that will help with my acne, and these are not it. Ive tried coconut oil, but I'm one of the select few that it has a comedogenic effect (clogs pores) so it makes everything worse. I think that this product did the same thing for me. I did, however, love the texture of the pads; they weren't too abrasive or too soft, just enough for daily exfoliating.

- DeCa05


This is a great moisturizer for even acne prone skin. It does smell like tea tree oil, but works well and didn't cause new breakouts!

- Kyla

Tea Tree Oil Skin Ointment

very nice, not too stinky. Works really well. Be careful to wash fingers afterwards, keep away from eyes.

- Erika

Healing Power

This Tea Tree Oil is really soothing and works fast! I've used it on rashes caused by autoimmune allergies, acne, dry skin, and to help heal cracks on the tips of my fingers.

- Michelle


For a long time I used stridex because I struggled with acne for years and that was one of the only products that helped more than others. I recently decided to try this and am very pleased with the results. It doesn't seem to work any better or worse than Stridex but I definitely feel less guilty using it knowing that I am not putting so many harmful chemicals on my face anymore.
