Hardly one to praise pimple solutions - I realize it's one of the most frustrating skin issues to deal with - but having been through the rigamarole of acne treatments, Osmia makes a natural treatment for blemishes that really works. Zap!
I don't often get spots, but I used to. The acne I had in my teens was often the only thing I could think about. Not only did I feel un-pretty, it hurt. Pimples are painful.
Occasionally, as an adult I get a breakout. Before, with no natural solution on hand, and not sure what my options were, I'd let it linger and work it's way out. Now, when a spot appears I hit it with a dose of Osmia Spot Treatment and see noticeably reduced redness within minutes. Most times, the spot doesn't even make it past a day. Take last night for example, a few spots around my chin were looking like they might be trouble, so before bed I rolled on this treatment, to roll out of bed this morning to barely there dots and a very soft chin.
It makes sense, as the ingredients read a list of skin-friendly oils and essentials: A base oil of evening primrose oil + a blend of antibacterial and pain-reliving essentials oils. Evening primrose oil is the oil from the seed of the evening primrose plant. It's commonly used for skin disorders like eczema and acne as it's known to heal the skin. Evening primrose oil contains fatty acids, which seem to help decrease inflammation. The mix of essential oils combat bacteria and work effectively on blemishes. Cajeput oil is analgesic - pain relieving, antibacterial, antiseptic, and vulnerary - which means healing. Interestingly, I found out it is produced by the steam distillation of fresh leaves and twigs of the cajeput tree and paperbark tree, which are closely related to, but are not the same as tea tree. Also in the mix are lavender, lemon, parsley, thyme, cypress and rosemary CO2. All of which have acne-fighting properties.
Have to say I'm into spot-zapping with Osmia Organics, and will be keeping one of these on hand for spot treatment.
Clementine Fields has it.
