Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Oil recently launched a new and effective skincare range that works to clear acne prone skin in just three easy steps: cleanse, tone and hydrate.

I like that the Thursday Plantation Tea Tree acne range is free of Benzoyl Peroxide, and super gentle on young skin. Its key ingredient is superior quality tea tree oil –a natural ingredient with incredible anti-bacterial powers. Each product in the range is specifically formulated to help target, clear and prevent spots and blemishes.

The range is perfect for teens and adults alike who want a natural solution to treat acne.  Native to Australia, Tea Tree oil is a natural antiseptic that is distilled from specially selected Melaleuca alternifolia leaves.

I asked my 14-year-old daughter, Miyo, to give the range a try and report back.

Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Foaming Face Wash (R209.95) – BUY

Miyo LOVES a mousse foaming wash, so was excited to try this one that’s soap free and contains calming chamomile to soothe skin redness. She did say that the first few times she used it, she found it a bit drying, but after about a week her skin seemed to acclimate.

This naturally derived cleanser uses the antibacterial power of Tea Tree to gently remove excess sebum and dirt without stripping the skin of its natural oils and is ideal for those with combo/oily skin types. I also like that this formula is free of synthetic fragrance, animal derived ingredients (Miyo is a Vegan), parabens, Sodium Laureth/ Laurel sulfate (foaming agent that dries the skin) and any synthetic colours.

Thursday Plantation Tea Tree & Witch Hazel Tone (R205.95) BUY

Miyo had never used a toner before, and I had to explain to her that this one would assist in removing impurities while improving the look of her pores. Along with tea tree oil, the formula contains witch hazel – a natural astringent – that is responsible for tightening pores, soothing aloe vera and calming lavender.

Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Face Cream (R215.95) BUY

This lightweight moisturiser rehydrates the skin with antibacterial tea tree and hydrating Rosehip, macadamia oil, shea Butter and vitamin E. It doesn’t clog pores and absorbs very quickly leaving no oily residue. When it comes to moisturisers for Miyo, I always keep an eye out for those labelled non-comedogenic as this means it won’t clog the pores.

Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Blemish Gel (R219.95) BUY

Miyo uses this on her spots, blackheads & whiteheads to dry them out. What she likes most is that this is an invisible (colourless) gel that penetrates the skin in seconds and works really quickly to blitz pimples. Even the hubby has been using it as a spot treatment.

While I certainly wouldn’t describe Miyo as having acne, like most teens, she does battle with breakouts and blackheads.

Miyo has been using the range for close on three weeks now and just two days ago remarked how her skin looked so good saying, “it looks like I’ve got an Instagram filter on my skin it’s so smooth and clear”.

When I asked Miyo if she would recommend this range to her friends battling with spots and acne, she said yes because of the following points:

It works, and you can see an improvement in your skin quickly

The range is Vegan (except for the Lip Guard that contains beeswax)

It has a fresh, natural smell

I battle with blemishes and looking it the pics in your posts it seems that these products work really really well so I would love to try it out❣️❣️❣️

💚 I’m 23 and reached the adult acne stage (which has led to weekends on the couch because its effected my insecurity level by 1000000%) because I have extremely sensitive skin I am very limited when it comes to skin care products. I always opt for natural products and have only heard amazing things about this range and dying to try it out!!

I would love to try this as I’ve recently struggling with acne. As an adult, who’s never had acne during teenage years, it’s quite an adaption. There are so many products on the market which makes it extremely difficult to choose a specific product. I’ve tried a range of products but nothing seems to work. It really does take a toll on my confidence levels so I’m hoping to get the opportunity to try a product like this Which looks very promising!

I would love this for my 13 year old daughter who is also struggling with her skin. We’ve tried many products but just haven’t had the results she wants. Plus her skin is extremely sensitive and dry. These products look amazing!

Please i need this for my son (Christian Fourie). His skin is very bad. He is 14 years old. He struggle with eczema from bith and with the hormones coming in with acne it’s very bad. Please help me to help my son to get his confidence back with a beautiful skin. Please. Thank you. Love your blog.

Would love to give this a try! I NEVER struggled with acne as a teenager, but it seems that now, and in my later 20’s, problem skin is taking its revenge 😒 and I really have no idea how to deal with this.

I would love to win this not for myself bit for my sons. I have a 15 year old and a 14 year old both of whom seem to be breaking out all the time. My 15 year lives to pick them. This would help his skin and self esteem as well.

I’d love to try this range as I struggle with acne and blemishes as well as uneven skin tone. It cam really bring my confidence down sometimes

I would like to win this for my sister. Her birthday is soon and she would be thrilled. She struggles heavily with adult acne and I know she’s tried almost everything but heavy meds. I feel this would be perfect for her as one can see it bothers her alot but she’s very embarrassed by it. my sister looks beautiful without makeup but always wears heavy makeup to cover the breakouts. I know it’s counter productive but at this stage I feel she’s given up since she can’t find anything to work for her. This would be a wonderful gift for her. She deserves it

I would love to win this for my daughter who has acne prone skin her breakouts are effecting her as she has become self conscious and effecting her confidence.
Will be a absolute pleasure to win this for her to use and help her skin and make her feel good about her appearance.
Thank you

I have acne & blemishes even though I’m over 30 seems like winter has taken his toll on my once beautiful skin. I need a new inspiration for the new season, would love to give the tea tree range a try

I have heard about Thursday Plantation Tea tree and always wanted to try it. I am 36 and still plagued by teenager face?!?!?! I try literally everything as nothing seems to relieve my oily breakout face…hoping this would be the answer 🙂

Would love to try this on both my kids who have acne as well as myself,seeing that its a more natural product makes it even more suitable.

My son is 12 and is struggling with pimply skin. Would love to try this out on him to improve his self esteem and get it under control to limit scarring, it sounds amazing and looks like really makes a difference.

I’ve always had clear skin, until recently 😢. I’m 20 and have always used natural products on my skin – a Rooibos range and then a range that that I got as a gift from India using only herbal ingredients. But recently, I haven’t been able to get the blackheads to disappear OR the odd ‘breakouts’ (for lack of a better word) in specific parts of my face. I’ve been meaning to go research and use a new natural skincare range for myself & saw your instastory! ❤️ My skin routine has always been so important to me, especially in last few years as I’ve gotten older, especially because as much as I love make-up, the most I have the chance to do before uni is mascara (& brows of course!) But I’d love to stick to the natural products because they’ve always been my go-to and I’m just feeling like I’m not ready to get into the other more ‘adult-ey’ products just yet!

im at university and i have marks, pimples and blachead. my self esteem is not where i want it to since im becoming a teacher. it has a impact on my life and ive been through different products and it doesnt help. being on university with friends that has clear skin brings down my confidence and allows quiet when meeting new people

Wow ,those before & after pics show a huge improvement.
I’m currently battling horrible hormonal break puts aggravated by national board exams stress plus working full time.
I have wanted to try this range for a while & hope it will curb the skin disaster I have right now.

Ah this sounds so amazing ! I’m 22 years old and still struggling with acne and unpleasant acne scars to the point where most days I don’t leave my house due to embarrassment . Seeing the incredible results from your gorgeous daughter makes me so excited for a product that’s natural and actually WORKS ! I would truly love to try this out to gain my confidence back ❤️ Thanks so much for sharing these awesome products and results !

I have tried everything, I bern on Oratane twice now and I still get terrible breakouts. I really want to stop relying on my dermatologist when I get breakouts but I’ve really never found products that can help my skin, besides going on medication. I really love to try these products out.

I’ve literally struggled with acne since I was a teenager (13) till now, I’m 20 years old and will be 21 within the next few months! Having ance prone skin really dampens my self esteem, self confidence and makes me feel really shy to actually go out and enjoy myself.Would love to try this as it would answer my prayers for some clear skin, especially for my 21st😊 I love that these products are vegan, and natural as I refuse to use any chemicals on my skin because it honestly makes things worse. I have extremely sensitive skin which means I cant just use anything, however, ive found that natural products are always the best and make you feel so great about yourself. Anything is the way to go!

This range looks fabulous! I get terrible breakouts and red splotches due to the sun, so with summer round the corner – this is ideal!

I never had acne when i was a teen, I am now 33 years old and have sensitive acne prone skin. When i became pregnant, I just got pimples after pimples. It felt like I woke up with a new one everyday. I have tried a lot of skincare products but nothing actually works. My face is my everything and because of my struggle with acne, I do not have a good self esteem anymore. This would really help bring my confidence back.

I would love my son, aged 16, to use these products. He started shaving and with a teenage skin, with pimples, the shaving, and sweating as he is very active, his skin is in need of proper care with good products. I love the fact that the product has natural ingredients and am sure it will assist in making his skin healthier , smooth and radiant.

Thursday Plantayion products afe amazing! I would love to win this hamper because it doesn’t contain hatmaful substances that would contribite to my estrogen – dominance. It is is soft and effective – products I love.

Pregnancy is taking its toll on my previously clear skin and I need something nature and soothing to clear it

I have been looking for natural products that work for my skin for soooo damn long and everything i try, either dry’s out my skin so much or it makes me break out even more. I would love to give these babies a go as i have seen wonderful reviews about them everywhere.

My daughter is struggling with the effects of PCOS on her skin. Would love to see if this could help her. She already uses the Shampoo and Conditioner for her hair with great results.

Who would have thought at the tender age of 42 I would have developed eczema. What makes it particularly bad is that it happens to be on my face…where it is most noticeable. I gave read that tea tree based products are very effective for eczema, I would live to try out this range and prove what I have read about tea tree to be true. Holding thumbs

Would love to try it on my blemishes and uneven skin tone. and we’ve tried a few things for my daughter’s acne without success so definitely also for her acne.

I would love this for my 16 year old son. He struggles with pimples and blemishes and we have tried so many products. Based on your daughter’s results, I think this will be a good product for him.

I haven’t really had problematic skin, but since I gave birth in January things have changed. I have now had quite a bit of acne breakout especially around the cheeks and it is united concerning. I would love to try this tea tree range because I love tea tree products and I know this will help my breakout. Lovely products, lovely giveaway!

I’m a 21 year old student and have really bad skin, I keep breaking out especially during the stressful exam period.

This range sounds so amazing.. A true miracle for those of us who are prone to breakouts and left with scarring. Would love to give it a try and work come great looking skin again.

I struggle with breakouts on my chin and jawline area. This would be awesome especially seeing the results from others.

I’d love my almost 13 year old daughter to try this out as we have yet to find a product that works for her. I wouldn’t mind giving it a go too. At 44, I’m suddenly developing some unpleasant blemishes I’ve never had before 😞

Hi, I’d love to win this amazing product for my teenage son. He’s just entered the puberty phase and is struggling with a acne breakouts.

I have tried tea tree products but they not 100% and that is why i haven’t tried it. After seeing your daughters results i have a feeling it will work on my skin

I’m 19 years old and my acne is FINALLY starting to clear up. I don’t get those huge pimples anymore and I get fewer breakouts but my face is full of dark marks and spots from the acne. I’ve tried oils and creams and they haven’t really made any difference. I would love to try this because I need to get these marks away!

I’ve had bad skin since I was a teenager (I’m 30 now) and since I fell pregnant a few months ago it’s just gotten worse. I’m so keen to try something new (and natural!!) to make me feel freshfaced and ‘glowing’ (while I’m constantly growing 🤣) and to try kick this skin problem in the but!

What a beautifully written post! My skin has always been problematic, from my pre teen years. I’m now 31, and my skin is something that I wish I knew how to improve. I’d love the chance to try these products and see if it will help my skin and my confidence! xo

I would love my granddaughter to try this product. At age 12 she pronounced herself vegan and in the last two years has had a problem with the odd breakout of spots, both black and white heads.

I am 37 years old with really bad acne. It is worse than when I was a teenager. I was on some medication for it (that made it better but not go away), but recently got sick and was forced to stop taking it, now instead of just pimples, I’m also covered in blackheads!

Wonder if this would help with pigmentation too?

Amazing product line! Tea Tree oil has such amazing benefits allround. I would love to win this for my daughter to use on her skin to restore her skin and help with her breakouts.

Hi Bronwyn, I think you need to consider seeing a dermatologist.

Hi Kim, I strongly suggest you DON’T use Tea Tree on skin battling with Eczema. Tea Tree is a wonderful ingredient, but can be VERY drying. Your best bet would be to look for a FRAGRANCE FREE range that is basic, such as Avene. Pop me an email if you’d like more details:

Hi. I have adult acne and lack confidence. This seems like a product that could possibly help heal my acne.
