I was very nervous about trying this product, because my previous attempts to use “spot removers” had not only failed, but it also made my blemishes much worse. In particular, I was disappointed by all the salicylic acid-based products I tried. The ingredients of this blemish stick looked instead much more reassuring, so I started to apply it at night on every little spot on my face. A few days later, I was putting it on several times a day, because it was working so well!
Some facts about this product:
- This is a roll-on blemish stick. The consistency is liquid (slightly runny) so you only need to dab a little product on your spots.
- It has a strong scent because of the essential oils it contains. The main thing I can smell is Tea Tree Oil. It does not contain any added fragrance. I love its scent.
- It should be applied several times during the day for optimal results (Desert Essence recommends 5-6 times a day)

Final Thoughts: I am so happy I finally found one product that is truly helping me with my skin. I have tried so many things over the past few months, but everything seemed to worsen my problem. I highly recommend trying this product if your skin is prone to occasional blemishes. I am on my second bottle in only 30 days.
