Review: Tea tree oil Acne Treatment Cream KSTIMES

Surprisingly effective anti-acne cream


I didn't expect much when I bought this cream, but after a couple of days use I was pleasantly surprised. It left my skin refreshed and calm. At the time I was experiencing a small breakout of 3 pimples. I used this cream and the pimples disappeared in no time.



The ingredients of this cream are Deionized water, Honeysuckle, Aloe, Chamomile and Tea tree.

This cream is produced in China and I bought it from eBay.


I left a review on eBay and gave it 5 stars because it is actually a very effective anti-acne cream. It calms breakouts, it matifies the skin and it feels lovely on the skin. The texture is luxurious and thick. Yet, it is super light when you spread it, it sinks in quickly and matifies the skin instantly. You can imagine the scent if you've used Tea tree products- fresh and energising.

But there are a few things I don't like about this cream. The price £12 is too high for the 30 gr. we are given in the jar. ( Compare that to The Body shop Anti-imperfection daily solution which is 50ml and costs £13, but I always get it almost half price because their stores as well as their website offer great discounts every month) But because  this cream is so effective, if you want to give it a try, I think that it is worth purchasing it even at this price.

The other thing that I don't like about this cream is that it makes my eyes teary on application. On the packaging one of the ingredients is DL-Menthol. I wonder if that is the reason that it makes my eyes teary. As you can imagine, this makes it inconvenient to use when I am in a hurry in the morning. Applying mascara and eye make up after I've applied this cream is just too difficult because my eyes are tearful. At night there is no problem, I close my eyes for a few minutes to prevent them from tearing and all is well within a few minutes.

I would say, give this cream a try if you have occasional breakouts, it will calm them and possibly make them disappear just as it did with mine. But if you have severe acne, you might want to look for another cheaper alternative to this cream. Remember it is only 30gr. and it won't last you long if you apply it twice daily....

I used mine only when I had the breakout I mentioned. The cream cleared my skin and I have been pimple free ever since.  I have some cream left and keep it in case I have another breakout. But I use Tea tree oil Anti-imperfection daily solution from The Body shop daily- which is much less expensive and super effective at preventing blemishes.

Next I will be writing a review on The Body shop Tea tree oil Anti-imperfection daily solution ( in the photo below)



Till next time, Milu

Galactomyces & Bifidalacto Complex products+ Several UPDATES

Did I like using Manyo Factory Galactomyces niacin?

No. I will not repurchase Manyo Factory Galactomycesniacin again.

UPDATE:31/08/17 It has been 7 months since I wrote this post and in that time I've learnt that Niacin is a very well researched skin loving ingredient. I will be purchasing products containing Niacin :-) and hoping it will "shrink" my pores. 

UPDATE:28/11/2017 As mentioned in my previous update, I wanted to try a Niacin product and I chose Dr.Troub Skin Returning Niaten serum with 10% Niacinamide. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and so far so good. I think my pores look more refined, but it could be my wishful thinking that is tricking my eyes. Sadly, this product is only 30ml and at almost £20, I would not be repurchasing it. I hear that The Ordinary have a nice Niacinamide serum and cheaper.

Observations about applying the product and how it felt on the skin

Applying it (Manyo Factory Galactomycesniacin) felt like applying water. No scent, no colour,…

Best calming cream for acne prone skin- Sulwhasoo Herblinic EX Restorative Ampoules review

I first heard about the Sulwhasoo range from one of my favourite Youtubers- Lili. Her blog title is I am a beauty junky and that is also the name of her YouTube channel. I don't remember her reviewing the Herblinic EX Restorative Ampoules but when I researched several Sulwhasoo products she talked about, I found a couple of reviews on Herblinic and was intrigued enough to order samples from Ebay.  I bought 30 samples and they lasted me 15 days ( using them day and night).

From the very first application, my skin was nourished like never before. I could tell that this was one amazing product.



This honey like cream/serum is apparently packed with medicinal herbs which are said to  help nourish and  repair damaged skin. It smells herby and to me that scent is calming. It looks like honey but it spreads easily and little goes a long way. The application can be a bit sticky, but I don't mind that. One sample is enough for my face and neck.


After I used the first 30 samples, my skin…

Review: Naruko Tea tree shine control & blemish clear night gelly

As I am writing this blog post, I glance at the empty tub of the Naruko Tea tree night gelly ( that is the actual spelling on the tub)  I can't bare to throw it away yet. I absolutely loved using it.

But before I tell you anything else about this product, I must tell you this:  This was the best smelling skin care product I have ever used. I bet you are surprised. After all it is called a Tea tree night gelly and as we know tea tree doesn't smell nice at all. But this product does not smell of tea tree oil. Ok, may be there is just a hint of tea tree, but a nice smelling one. To be precise, the gelly smells like a fresh spring morning: crisp and cool, delicately scented as snowdrops  and with a gentle hint of mint. That's why I can't bare to throw away the empty tub yet, I keep on sniffing it...



The gelly applies smoothly and it feels very cool on the skin.  I didn't like that at first because I prefer skin care products that feel warm or at least not cool. But I go…
