I’m in my 40s and suffer from problem skin. I’m always looking for products that will help calm my acne without drying out my skin. I know that many people swear by using Tea Tree oil for acne prone skin, so when I had the chance to review this Tea Tree face wash and face cream from Era Organics, I was excited to see how well it would perform.Can you really fight acne and wrinkles at the same time?

Why do I have to suffer from horrible skin?
One of the biggest beauty problems I’m facing as I’m getting older is my aging skin. I’m getting fine lines and wrinkles, but I still break out like a freaking teenager!
The only difference is instead of breaking out from oily skin, my acne is now caused by hormones.
Either way, it’s seriously stupid and majorly embarrassing. Like, can’t a girl catch a break?
What’s the big deal about Tea Tree Oil?
For one, did you know that Tea Tree Oil is naturally antimicrobial? This is why it’s effective against things like acne, bacterial infections, athlete’s foot, psoriasis, eczema and more.
I’ve reviewed Tea Tree Oil body washes and foot soaks before and I regularly use a little Tea Tree oil concoction to help combat my greasy hair and flaky scalp (yep, I have that problem too – yay).
One of the most noticeable effects from using the Tea Tree Oil is the pleasant little tingle it gives you when it comes in contact with your skin.
I’m not going to lie. I was a little concerned about what the Era Organics Tea Tree Oil face wash would do to the sensitive skin on my face.
Normally when I wash my face, I go over every part, including my closed eyes to help remove mascara and eye makeup. But since this is a Tea Tree Oil product, I was very careful not to use it over my eyes the first time I tried it.
The consistency is creamy with a subtle scent of Tea Tree Oil. But there was no tingle, which is a good thing! It created no irritation and left my skin feeling super clean.
The next use, I figured what the hell. I’m going to just use it over my entire face (including over my CLOSED eyes) and see if it burns. It was fine! No burning.
Look at all these amazing natural ingredients!
So now I know I can safely use it to remove makeup and daily dirt and grime in one go with this face wash. No need for a separate makeup remover, so you can save money too. Score!
Can you really fight acne and wrinkles at the same time?
Everyone knows that to keep wrinkles at bay, you need to have a good moisturizer.
I hate moisturizer.
Moisturizer always leaves my skin feeling greasy and gross. And living in Phoenix, where the temperature is a million degrees for 9 months out of the year, it only makes me sweat and clogs my pores. This does not help with the acne situation.
So I usually have to decide which skin problem I hate more, wrinkles or acne? I always wished there was a natural product out there that would help keep my skin hydrated without exacerbating my acne.
The face cream comes in a cute little mason jar.
The consistency is thick with a subtle scent of Tea Tree Oil. You just need to rub your fingers across the cream and rub it into your skin.
Within seconds, it sinks right into your skin.
And guess what? It has absolutely no greasy feel! Hooray!!!
I like to use it at bedtime and my skin still isn’t greasy after a restless night of dreaming and hot flashes.
But the best thing is that not only does moisturize your skin, it also helps to fight acne at the same time. I’m even seeing improvement with my old acne scars!
