After reading the many positive reviews I was willing to spend a lot of $ for a very small jar of product. Arrived, opened and noticed the jar was not sealed. The jar top seal came off without me having to remove. This immediately placed doubt in my mind that this product would work. Maybe my thoughts created my reality? Regardless, this product did not dry up my acne as I had hoped. It did however do a good job of controlling oil from appearing on my face during the day. That is a plus, but I’m sure there is a more economical product I can purchase to receive similar results. I really hoped this product would work, but no luck here.
I’ve been struggling with HORRIBLE cystic acne since middle school (I’m 18 now) and when I tell you I have tried EVERYTHING, I truly have and yet nothing external seems to work for me. Been vegan for almost 2 years, switched to all natural products, I take handfuls of supplements daily, manage stress levels with meditation, went off of any birth control and unnatural hormonal managements. I gave myself the title of the homeopathic doctor, convinced I COULD SAVE MY SKIN AND HEAL MY BODY ALL ON MY OWN... well... it hasn’t been going great. I’m more than a year into this path and I can honestly say things were a lot easier before I tried to become the “witch doctor” lol. This stuff clearly works for others so I say give it a shot but for me all it really did was bring more cysts up without any of them coming to a head and just feeling like I had pockets of painful coal on my face. I mean it REALLY brought things up that I didn’t even know were there, so for that I give this 3 stars cause I find that impressive!!! I just wish that there was a happy ending to this story but unfortunately this product wasn’t my “end all, be all” because I assume my skin ailments are more hormonal than cosmetic and I’m tired of putting in so much effort to be natural when all it’s doing is boxing myself in and continuously making me search for an answer that isn’t really there in any of these products. Oh well... I’m throwing in the towel.. back on birth control and dermatologist quick fixes I go because I’ve tried this natural path for a year and a half straight and it has only spiraled downward for my skin. Some people just aren’t meant to be 100% natural and organic, everyone has different genetics. Product was still a helpful catalyst for giving me this conclusion and for that I’m grateful! Hope everyone else can benefit though!!
I wanted to love this product however after a months use of applying multiple times a week to horrible, painful, large cystic acne bumps on my chin it seemed to have not done anything...in fact they just keep growing and getting more tender. I gave two stars because I feel like the first application I did tricked me into thinking it was going to be a miracle saver but after that initial cyst I have not had any success.
I wanted to love this, especially since I paid so much money for such a tiny amount. I was optimistic because of all the great reviews but this did absolutely nothing for me. I used it religiously and it did nothing for my severe cystic acne. I’m glad it helped others with my same issue though.
Years of clear skin and then I turned 28 and boom, cystic acne. I was waking up every day with new painful bumps in places I never had them, even as a teen. I purchased this and boy does it work! I apply it to the bump overnight and it draws out all the gunk, so it comes to a head by morning. When I wash my face, I run my fingers over the problem areas and if there’s any indication that a bump is forming, I apply it to that area as well. By morning the bump is either at a head or gone. You’ll still have other treatments to prevents bumps. I couple it with an acne serum and the coordinating wash/mask combination. All together my skin is clearing up big time!
My son was having issues with cystic type acne on his forehead after he went camping for 2 weeks this summer. It was red, lumpy and painful. Washing his face and using regular acne treatment wasn't helping at all. I found TreeActiv on Amazon before heading to the dermatologist and was so glad I did! Saw results after one use. See the before and after pictures. Only 1 month between the 2 photos. Redness is gone, lumps are gone, just working on clearing up red scars. Love this stuff!!
This product really works well. I have had a very stubborn cystic acne spot that I have not been able to get rid of for about a year now. I’ve tried several other products with no success. I saw a difference with this product after the 1st application and now after a couple of weeks it’s completely gone. I have also now tried some of their other products and I am so impressed with the quality of all the products I’ve tried. Thank you TreeActiv for the great quality you put into each and everything you sell. You’ve gained a loyal customer.
Due to some bad recent habits (being a new mom and all) some spots of cystic acne began spotting on my cheek area. I never had acne like this before so it really freaked me out. I had tried regular acne treatments for months and nothing seemed to work. I decided to try this after seeing rave reviews.
Will this help overnight or with a single application like some people said? Likely not, especially not for me. But I’ve been using it daily for a week now and it’s really improving the acne — more in one week than the regular drugstore stuff did in months. So I’m inclined to think TreeActiv does work vs coincidence.
General tips: keep your face clean. After cleansing, use a clean towel to dry your face or a paper towel so you’re not putting other bacteria on your face.
