Tamanu oil from Madagascar has a soothing effect and helps to calm irritation and redness.

This smells just like tea tree oil! lol! :D
This shower gel comes in the usual plastic bottle with a flip top cap.

I bought this one together with the Blemish Gel, hoping that this will cure my backne, after hearing my colleague raved about how this product cured hers!
So did this cure my backne?
Unfortunately it didn't! As expected, things that wash off do not really have a lasting effect on the skin! :(
However, this DOES work to prevent back acne. After my serious bout of stress-induced backne (that left me scarred T_T) healed, i stopped using this because i don't like the scent. Within a few days, i had several pesky tiny bumps on my back already. After zapping those with some topical medication, I now use this daily, so far so good, no backne. yet.
With school work picking up and my stress levels skyrocketing, lets see if this continues to work for me! Lol! I'll report back if it doesn't! I'll probably pick up a bottle when I run out, or I might just try the cheaper anti-bacterial body washes available in the market! :D
