Breakouts - busted! Our Breakout Buster is a cult-favourite that helps to calm and relieve acne spots, cold sores and ease the itch of bug bites.

It is blended with tea tree essential oil, traditionally used as an antiseptic and known to combat acne conditions. Peppermint oil cools the area for quick relief. Chamomile is soothing to irritation, as well as anti-inflammatory and anti-redness. Lemon has both antibacterial and antiseptic qualities. Grapefruit acts as an astringent and a powerful toner for congested skin. Lavender is a natural anti-inflammatory to calm and also helps to reduce redness.

breakout buster colour changeFUN FACT: You might find that the colour of our Breakout Busters varies from honey yellow to white. This is from the Grapefruit oil that changes in colour depending on the fruit harvest as the oil is extracted from grapefruit peel.

The naturally anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of the essential oils work to make this wonderful little stick a powerful remedy with multiple uses. We asked Rocky staff and our Toxin-Free community what uses they trust the Breakout Buster for and this is what they said:

“Have you seen My Big Fat Greek Wedding? It's like the Windex the dad puts on everything! Natural version of a medicated lip butter, cold sores, cuts, scrapes, pimples, razor burn, soothing ingrown hairs, and bug bites! I also use it on my eczema. It's the bomb!”
- Cheries, Store Manager Winnipeg

“I struggle with cystic acne and not a lot scares it away. I’ve noticed that when putting this on my blemishes before bed that in the morning they are reduced. Also love the scent!”
- Emma, Customer from Lethbridge

“I use it on my lips whenever I get windburn or sunburn!”
- Salina, Marketing & Events

how do you apply your breakout buster?


“I had 2 cold sores and was using an expensive prescription and it was taking forever to clear, I started using this product from Rocky Mountain and within a day the sores were starting to heal. I quit using the prescription and within days the cold sore was almost gone!”

- Joanne, Customer from Ontario

Hiking blisters! I put breakout buster on first (with a Q-tip), and then my band-aids!”
- Veronica, Store Manager Banff

“A nail saver. The nourishment my nails and cuticles need. What a saviour.”
- Donna, Customer from Canada

“It is effective for some acne, however where it really excels is for minor cuts, scrapes, dry patches, eczema, etc. I use it on my knuckles and lips throughout the winter months, especially before bed, and my skin has never been better.”
- Kristen, Customer from Edmonton

“All my dog scratches and definitely breakouts.”
- Allison, Store Manager Canmore
