LeeJiHam Tea Tree 90 Essence

Another from Leejiham (now Leegeehaam) item that I was very intrigued with is the Tea Tree 90 Essence.

Before I continue, Leejiham is now Leegeehaam–for those who don’t know yet–and has changed/upgraded the tea tree essence content from 90% to 95%. My review is only the Tea Tree 90 Essence 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

Tea tree extract–the key ingredient–soothes irritated skin or acne and is anti-inflammatory. The recommended use is twice a day after toner and before moisturizer.


This unscented tea tree essence looks like water, but has a bit of thicker consistency and is not runny. A tiny drop goes a long way. I only use three drops–one each on the forehead and left and right cheeks. It dries slightly fast without leaving a greasy feeling, and gives a bit of cooling and calming sensation as well as moisture.

After using a few products that target acne and other skin irritation, this has been the most effective. I’ll definitely repurchase when I go through this; it is now a must in my skin care routine. 🙂 Hopefully, the new version will be as effective.

I find the price to be decent for a 50ml essence. It would even take me a long while to use up. The only downside I could think of is the glass bottle. For an effective product, of course I would want to bring it when I travel and especially so because most of the time my skin reacts when I’m in a different environment. The bottle is also bulky.


Leegeehaam already discontinued the Tea Tree 90 Essence. Some stores still have it though. So if you want to try this highly effective version, better find this one and stock up before it’s completely gone.

I got mine at K-Beauty Cafe (at the same time with the Leejiham 5alpha Control Cream). As of this review, they still have it at Php1400. The Skincare Curator still has it too at a discounted price of Php1200. StyleKorean also carries Leegeehaam.
