  2. Hi, A few days ago my friend suggested me to buy Pure Nature Organic Tea Tree & Rosemary Purifying Blemish Solver from Oriflame. She had a whole lot of acne and even after trying all possible home remedies they were just not going away. So she used it and it worked wonders for her. I myself have used it for 2 days now. It dries out my acne and has started reducing those small marks too. Also, it’s totally natural so i hope it helps in long run.
