Another from Leegeeham (formerly “Leejiham”) that I was very intrigued with is the Tea Tree 90 Essence.
Before I continue as well as for clarity, upon the name change from Leejiham to Leegeeham, the brand released a new version with a tea tree essence of 95%. The one I have is the 90% version.
Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Extract, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Methyl Gluceth-20, Centella Asiatica Extract, Hippophae Rhamnoides Extract, Tremella Fuciformis (Mushroom) Extract, Trehalose, Buddleja Davidii Extract, Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme) Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Seed Extract, Bambusa Textilis Stem Extract, Pinus Palustris Leaf Extract, Butylene Glycol, Cellulose Gum, Illicium Verum (Anise) Fruit Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol
The key ingredient, tea tree extract, is an anti-inflammatory that soothes irritated skin or acne. Its recommended use is twice a day after toner and before moisturizer.
The Leejiham Tea Tree 90 Essence is unscented and has a slightly thick consistency. A drop goes a long way, so I just put a drop on my forehead and each cheek. It quickly dries without greasiness and gives a cooling and calming sensation as well as moisture.
This tea tree essence has kept me from getting pimples, which usually occur when it’s that time of the month. It also reduced redness. I enjoyed it in just a week’s use, actually. 🙂 I plan to repurchase when I go through this bottle. 🙂 Hopefully, the new version will be as effective. Also, for 50 ml, the price isn’t bad.
I’m not a fan of the glass bottle, though. It can be a hassle to bring to travels, particularly long haul ones.
While Leegeehaam already discontinued the Tea Tree 90 Essence, some online stores still have it. If you want to try this version, better stock up before it’s completely gone. 🙂
