Tea Tee & Volcanic Ash Serum was designed to clarify and balance acne-prone skin by putting together traditional herbal extracts used around the world to treat acne. You can use it all over your face as this will help to detox your skin from inflammation and impurities, or as a spot treatment.
Ingredient Deep Dive:
🌿 Tea Tree Extract (51%): Instead of using tea tree oil, this serum uses tea tree extract, which is gentler than the oil is, but still as effective to treat acne. Tea Tree extract also helps minimize redness.
🌿Volcanic Ash Extract: Volcanic ash is known to be a powerful detoxifier, as it cleans pores and helps remove dead skin cells. I put this in the serum to clarify your skin and draw out impurities.
🌿 Thanaka Extract: Thanaka is a yellowish white cosmetic paste from Burma that is traditionally made from ground bark. It’s used as makeup and to prevent sunburn, but also used to treat acne and clarify skin.
🌿Thyme Extract: Researchers from Leeds Metropolitan University have found that thyme extract can be more effective against acne-causing bacteria than benzoyl peroxide.
🌿 Comfrey is traditionally used to heal and calm irritated skin. The roots and leaves of the comfrey plant contain allantoin, a powerful cosmeceutical that reduces inflammation and helps to keep skin healthy.

Note that this serum varies from a creamy color (pictured) to a dark purple. This depends on the batch of extracts made from the botanical ingredients, and should not affect the efficacy of the product.
This was an impulse buy, always on the search for good acne treatments. I was not sure what I expected but not this. I will say that it's a little thin, so pay attention when applying this. A little goes a long way.
I had several breakouts that would not decide what they were going to do; aside from annoying me. In two days they were gone.
This works fast which was so surprising. No irritation, redness, stinging or burning. I stress this because my face is a sensitive pussy, nope can't be happy with anything else but this.
For me, I need my other serums to "dry" before applying or it pills. Super annoying but doesn't diminish my love for it. It's you know, challenging but we're working on our relationship. 💜
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. You say impulse we say stroke of genius! Glad you are loving this serum. We're glad you're here with the Sabbatical Beauty family! - SB Team
This has really worked so well in preventing breakouts! I have combination skin and it seems to provide good oil control and isn’t making the rest of my skin dry. I had a huge pimple pop up when I first got it and it resolved in 3 days using this as a spot treatment. Great product!

This is perfect for the acne I get from wearing a mask all day.

I typically use this as a spot treatment by putting it on a breakout in the morning and at night. It quickly reduces the appearance of blemishes. I highly recommend it!

I just used it the first time today with noticeable improvement to my redness. Looking forward to seeing the changes over the next few weeks/months.
