Desert Essence Blemish Touch Stick, $6-7

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t get any blemishes, and if someone is telling you they never get blemishes, they are lying. I have really sensitive skin and most products that are made to help decrease blemishes can dry out my skin or even worse--irritate it more than it originally was. The Desert Essence Blemish Touch Stick is a product I have used on my skin for years now, and I always keep a bottle handy. This stuff is really amazing because it helps reduce blemishes without drying skin or irritating it, it actually soothes skin and gives a cooling effect. The Blemish Stick comes is a compact bottle with a screw on top and a rolling-ball applicator. The smell of this product can often come off a bit strong initially but after the first couple seconds you don’t notice it much anymore. The liquid mostly smells of tea tree oil but it is infused with other natural herbs like rosemary, lavender, and even thyme. My favorite part of this product is that it is very natural, all of the ingredients are recognizable herbs, oils, and extracts. The Blemish Stick does not leave any residue, it cools the spot you roll it on and dries quickly. Another great use for this stick is that it really helps stop mosquito bite itches! I find myself carrying a bottle of it in my purse in the summer time to stop itchy bug bites. The Blemish Stick can be found at Trader Joe’s, Whole Foods, or directly from Desert Essence. This is great for minor blemishes and skin irritations.

Final verdict:
Cost: $6-7 at stores and online
How long does a bottle last: Depending on how much you use and how often, the bottle can last for a few months. I probably use my stick once or twice a week and have had it for a few months now. If you are using it to help with bug bite itches then you might run out more quickly.
Repeat offender: Tori and I have been using this product for years now and I don’t think we will stop.

  1. It's so true! To add on to Mirna's post: I have sort of acne-prone skin. Sometimes I'll get a zit at a time I can't handle it, like at work. This stuff is the only thing that will dry up a zit that won't stop oozing (gross, sorry!).
