Review: Ribby Rue 100% Pure Tea Tree Oil

Hey guys! It's been almost a week since I first started applying this to my face. Tea tree oil has been on my wishlist for quite some time because I've heard about the great benefits in curing acne. What else can tea tree oil be used for? Here are 20 great uses

I've incorporated the tea tree oil into my evening skincare routine. After I cleansed my face and applied moisturizer, I grab a cotton swab and dip it into the tea tree oil container. Then I dab the swab onto my affected areas. 

What do I think about this product?
  • Tea tree oil can be pricey. I've seen little bottles priced at $7-$10 in stores. I bought my little 1-inch bottle on eBay for $3. 
  • It might be just this brand, but I haven't noticed any major differences. All I can say is the redness on my face has decreased. The pores could have shrunk a teeny tiny bit, but I don't think the tea tree oil is responsible for that.
  • The smell is a little strange and strong, but not repulsive (to me at least!). 
In conclusion, I will not purchase this particular brand again. For $3, I was hoping the bottle would be slightly bigger. I don't think this bottle will last me very long. Two weeks at the most, if I were to use it every night. However, I will continue to try other tea tree oil products. In fact, I bought the tea tree oil cleanser from The Body Shop a few days ago ;) I can't wait to test that one out! 


  1. I have another brand of tea tree, though I think it's all the same and The smell IS horrid! I think that's all tea tree products. But the product itself has really cleared up my skin issues :)

    1. Aw, sorry about the smell. I guess I'm used to the herb-y smells? :P I'm glad it worked for you though! :)
