beauty scoop | osmia organics spot treatment

If you’ve been around the blog for a bit, you know that I’m always looking for the next best blemish treatment.

While I believe I have found my holy grail of acne prevention, when annoying little spots crop up every now and then, I turn to Osmia Organics Spot Treatment for backup.

{Osmia Organics sent me its 0.16-ounce Spot Treatment, which retails for $20, to sample and review.}

Made with a powerful blend of essential oils, Osmia Organics Spot Treatment gets to work on those little red beasts by swooping in, killing bacteria and leaving nothing but beautiful, clear skin in its path.

Take a peek at the ingredients:

Organic evening primrose oil and essential oils of organic lavender, organic cajeput, organic lemon, parsley, thyme, organic cypress and organic rosemary CO2

The only ingredient unfamiliar to me is cajeput oil. After a little research, I learned that cajeput oil is similar to tea tree oil with its antifungal properties — perfect for a blemish treatment, and even better for my acne-prone skin that hasn’t experienced cajeput oil before!

(Note: I think my skin is getting a little bit used to tea tree oil, so it’s not as effective for me anymore — I’m experimenting more with a tea tree and lavender blend as well as other acne-fighting oils!)

Because the Spot Treatment is packaged in a convenient roller ball style, I like to roll the treatment into my hairline (a recurring breakout place for me) to help keep little pimples from breaking through.

When a pimple has formed on my face, I roll the Spot Treatment directly onto the offender, and usually by morning the spot has either 1) become ready for extraction or 2) has decreased in size.

Final verdict? I think Osmia Organics Spot Treatment is my new secret weapon for bratty little blemishes! The mix of new-to-my-skin ingredients (as well as old standbys like lavender and rosemary) keeps my skin in check and allows the Spot Treatment to do truly amazing things to my skin.

Have you tried products from Osmia Organics (I hear their bar soaps are absolutely fabulous, and have a few to try myself!)? What do you do to spot-treat blemishes? Tell me your thoughts in the comments section!
