It is great for those skin type which always got bitten by the mosquito.

Verdict : I love its texture because it is lighter than the ordinary moisturiser. As you know for acne problem person, very creamy type of skin care don't suitable for their skin type. A lighter texture definitely will moisturise their skin well.

( Before & After )
Well, you might don't notice huge different from the before and after photo because I'm not acne skin type. However, Meditree Tea Tree Range is suitable for any skin type, not just for acne skin type. If you're having sensitive skin, you can use it as well. I feel my skin turn so smooth and fresh after tried this range.

Of course, if you ask me, I will say my favourite product of the day is the scrub and mask! It is not just for the face, you can apply on your back if you got acne problem on your back too.
