Everyone probably already knows about my love affair with Tea Tree Oil; it’s one if the beauty products that I almost always have in my cabinet. Lately, though, I’ve had wandering eyes. I decided to try the evanhealy Blemish Treatment Roll-On in hopes that it would do everything that Tea Tree Oil does for my blemishes and so much more. Here’s how it went:
Ingredients– (provided at evanhealy.com)- Apricot kernel oil (Prunus armeniaca),* rose hip seed oil (Rosa canina seed);* essential oils of: rosemary verbenon (Rosemarinus officinalis), thyme thymol (Thymus vulgaris), palmarosa (Cymbopogon martinii),* lavender maillette (Lavandula angustifolia),* cinnamon leaf (Cinnamomum cassia),* bay laurel (Laurus nobilis).* Flower Essence of Crab Apple.
I couldn’t find this particular evanhealy product on theCosmetic Safety Database, but their products that are on the site have hazard scores that range from a zeros to threes (only two of which are a three). I’d say that’s pretty impressive, since they have 24 products on the site. I can’t imagine that the hazard score on this product would be above a one, though, since it’s composed of mainly organic oils and the only individual ingredient that isn’t a zero is a one (lavender maillette).
Product Description (also provided at evanhealy.com)- âBlemish Treatment Roll-On is an effective remedy for impure, congested and acne skin conditions. Helps to purify and detoxify acne blemishes without irritating sensitive skin. Used daily, it is an ideal accompaniment to our Tea Tree Gel Cleanser and one of our Clay Treatment Masks..â
Price– $16.50 for .17 ounces, which is a little expensive for my tastes.
Performance– The evanhealy Blemish Treatment Roll-On works about as well as Tea Tree Oil. Since I love Tea Tree Oil, that obviously means that I love this as well. I don’t, however, love the price. I can buy a 2 0z bottle of Tea Tree Oil that works just as well for around fourteen dollars. I’m also not a huge fan of the fact that this product is in roll-on form. I don’t like the idea of applying the same roller ball to different blemishes on my face. I feel like I’m cross-contaminating, or something else ridiculous like that. I usually just roll it onto a cotton swab, which undoubtedly wastes a lot of it and is also worse for the environment. I’m just the worst.
Scent– The scent of this product actually reminds me a lot of Tea Tree Oil, which is interesting since Tea Tree Oil is not one of the ingredients. It smells a little foodier than Tea Tree Oil does, and a little less sharp, if that makes any sense at all. I personally prefer the scent of Tea Tree Oil, since that’s what I’m used to sniffing.
Rating– This product definitely deserves a solid seven. I subtracted two points for the steep price and one for the inconvenient roller ball.
