Removing Makeup & Treating Stressed Skin: Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water

Let's face it, taking off your makeup is never fun. But a few years back when I first discovered micellar water, it was like a weight was lifted. A non-greasy, simple way to remove your makeup that feels like just rubbing water on your face? I was hooked. Since then, I've tried different types and a few different brands but somewhere along the way I got distracted by dabbling in cleansing balms and oils. But I'm officially back on the cleansing water kick and my current favorite is the Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water*.

If you've been following my blog for a while you know I'm a big fan of some of Benton's other skincare products, mainly their BHA Aloe Skin Toner and Snail Bee High Content Essence. Benton is a Korean brand that prides themselves on using naturally derived ingredients. Their Tea Tree Cleansing Water is infused with Tea Tree Leaf Water and Tea Tree Leaf Oil and is free of PEGs, sulfates, fragrance and colorants. One thing I absolutely love about this brand is that they don't skimp on quality ingredients. Seventy percent of this product is Tea Tree Leaf Water and there are only ten ingredients total used in the whole product. I like knowing that the ingredients are clean and that they aren't just adding a bunch of filler into their skincare.

I love using tea tree oil on my skin because it has amazing skin soothing and antibacterial properties that really help if your skin tends to become congested or blemish-prone. Having tea tree mixed in with my cleansing water makes me feel like I'm not only removing my makeup but I'm actually treating and purifying my skin. Plus, tea tree oil can be a bit harsh on its own so including a milder form in with a cleansing water is probably easier on sensitive skin.

This product can be used to either remove makeup or as a morning cleanse. I like to put some on a cotton round and wipe it across my face to remove my face makeup. I tend to use a different makeup remover for my eye makeup as I always wear water-proof mascara. The cleansing water removes my makeup easily, without causing any tingling or redness. I did try using it once as a morning cleanse but I prefer using it to remove my makeup instead. It doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy but I still use my normal cream cleanser after to really deep clean my skin, as I would with any other makeup remover.

All in all, I feel like this has been doing a great job of removing my makeup and really appreciate the additional purification of having tea tree oil included in this step of my skincare routine. It makes me feel like I'm not just removing the makeup from the surface but really treating my pores and making sure they're cleansed. If you have oily, acne-prone or environmentally stressed skin and are looking for a way to remove your makeup while purifying your skin with naturally-derived ingredients, this is a great product to try.
