I used the tea tree toner briefly and it worked well as a toner, but I still used a benzoyl peroxide treatment while using it.  I don’t think it will replace your treatment, but it will help.  Then again, you might have milder acne and/or better results than me!!

I use the foaming face wash, and the matte gel and it works great! I really like it. For toner, I use Witch Hazel with aloe vera and rose water

Does it smell? I purchased some tee tree oil to add to a homemade bathroom scrub and couldn’t stand the way it smelled.  I couldn’t imagine putting it on my face, but that was the pure stuff, so a cleanser is probably formulated to not be as strong. 

Other than that, the march of dimes website says that using a topical benzoyl peroxide solution of 2.5% is safe during pregnancy.  Very little of a topical solution would be absorbed into the skin.  My doctor said that the 2% salicyclic acid toner I was using was perfectly fine to continue.  Everyone has their own comfort level though.

I use the whole line of Body Shop Tea Tree Oil products, and I love them. The toner is great…as a toner. It won’t work on its own to combat acne. But it will help. I love the Blemish-Clearing lotion, the foaming cleanser, the mask, and the toner. I think there’s a sale on right now (or, there is in Canada) where you can buy three products from the same line on discount.

@coachwife: I can’t comment on tea tree oil as an acne treatment but I am currently testing it in the lab to determine it’s antibacterial properties (or not). There have been a few studies mentioning the possibility of tea tree oil being an endocrine disruptor. But that’s another story…
