[REVIEW] Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water

February 28, 2018

Hello dear ! Welcome back to my blog (for you who already visit my blog before), and welcome for you who visit my blog for the first time hihi. Hope you're all enjoy reading my blog :D
So, are you searching for a cleansing water that gives a refreshing and calming effect on tired skin ? If it's a "YES", then you're coming to the right post because I'll tell you about a cleansing water that not only makes your face clean, but also gives a treatment to your skin. What is it? It's "BENTON TEA TREE CLEANSING WATER" ! (Oh ya, for your information I got this product from Benton Cosmetics for review purpose, thank you Benton !). So, are you curious about the product? Just keep scrolling !

Benton is one of Korean brands (I think almost k-beauty lovers know Benton lol). But, have you ever know that ‘Benton’ is inspired by and named after the movie ’The Curious Case of Benjamin Button’ in which Benjamin Button grows younger with time. In the movie, Benjamin has no choice but to leave his love, Daisy as he becomes younger. What if Daisy could also turn back time on her physical appearance, wouldn’t she be happier? It may just be a fictional movie, but wouldn’t most people have the same desire to be young again? Benton desires to restore your skin back to its original, healthy condition with healthy recipes, rather than to give temporary effects with harmful ingredients. That's why, Benton presents freshly made products by sticking to small batch production. It's cool, isn't it? :D


First I want to say that this is my first Benton product lol (hope I can try the other product soon hihi). Ok, so, this product come with a box, the design is simple (just in white and green color, with a lot of important information). I guess almost all of Benton products have a simple design, but it's totally good tho, because I love something simple but elegant hihi. The texture of the packaging is doff.

There is Benton's Logo, and a bar code at the top of the packaging. I think it's to verify the authentification of the product (since there's a lot of fake products now), and I found things like this (bar code, or QR code) at some Korean products . So beware, dear !

Oh ya, I've tried a lot of Korean products before, and 'almost' all of Korean brands rarely put an english translation on their packaging (and it's kinda sad, because I can't understand Korean language lol). But thanks God, Benton put the important information in english too ! Thank you Benton ! At least it helps me so much, hihi. So, the packaging said that this product infused with Tea Tree Leaf Water and Tea Tree Leaf Oil, this cleansing water mildly cleanses your skin, leaving skin refreshed and calm. 

Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water is infused with Tea Tree Leaf Water and Tea Tree Leaf Oil. The cleansing water gives a refreshing & calming effect on tired skin while mildly cleansing. Also, the product revitalizes irritated, and stressed-out skin with redness. Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water is designed to combine cleansing and tea tree treatment in order to ease the inconvenience of those who separately wash their faces with tea tree essential oil-diluted water. So, it will be easier for you ! hihi. The cleansing water leaves skin clear and smooth.

Ingredients :
EWG Hazard Score of all ingredients: (1) Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Water (70%), (1) Water (Aqua), (1) Butylene Glycol, (1) Dipropylene Glycol, (2) Glycerin, (1) 1,2-Hexanediol, (1) Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, (1) Polyglyceryl-6 Caprylate, (1)Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, (1) Sodium Chloride
** The numbers in the brackets are the EWG hazard scores. (EWG hazard score is the ‘degree of risk’ suggested by EWG (Environmental Working Group- American non-profit organization aiming to reduce the use of harmful chemicals.)

So, I've checked EWG hazard score, and it means that Benton is not using harmful ingredients on this products, because 1-2 means that it's "Low Hazard". hehe. The product has only 10 clean ingredients free of PEGs and Sulfates, which is a less burden on the skin. Oh ya, high content of ingredients derived from "Tea Tree Leaf" (70%), and I'll tell you more about Tea Tree.

I've been lovin' tea tree so much because it's suitable for my skin that oily-combination (and even suitable for acne prone skin) ! Because it totally helps me to reduce my acne (anti-blemish). And for your information, tea tree leaf having long been used as various folk remedies among Australian natives, it has been used as infection treatment for having an antibacterial effect. Also tea tree leaf has skin calming & deodorizing properties. Tea tree also has many benefits on skin, including skin soothing, hydrating, astringent, and anti-blemish effects. Yes, that's why I love tea tree so much (always freaking excited to try tea tree products lol).

Oh ! I almost forgot to tell you that Benton also cruelty free dear ! So it means that this products doesn't tested on animal for the development purpose.
Netto : 200 ml / 6.76 fl. oz.
Better used 6 months after opened.

Back to the packaging,
for the packaging, it comes with a transparant flip top bottle so we can see the products inside. The design is the same as the box, and the sticker is doff. And let me tell you something, so I accidentally leave a lisptick stain at the bottle when I clean up my lipstick. I was so panicked ! But, it turns out so easy to clean tho. omg. The sticker is so good, and now it still looks like new hahahaa.

By the way, you can see the important information at the products too (in English and Korean). Like how to use, caution, mfg date and exp date. So, if you loss the box, you still know all of that information. But let me tell you here.

1) Use this cleansing water as a makeup remover or a morning cleanser. Wet a cotton pad with the product and gently wipe the entire face.
2) Place the wet cotton pad for a while on the parts that need thorough cleansing and then gently wipe. (Using an eye makeup remover is recommended to erase eye makeup.) 

1) For external use only,
2) Avoid contact with eyes,
3) Stop use and ask a doctor if rash or irritation develops and lasts,
4) Do not use on damaged or broken skin,
5) Keep out of reach of children,
6) Protect this product from direct sun.

RECOMMENDED for The Following Skin Types :
1) Skin tired from impurities and external stressors / Oily and acne-prone skin,
2) Skin that wants a naturally-derived cleansing water / Delicate skin afraid of strong 100% tea tree oil,
3) Angry skin from heavy make-up / Skin with a water-oil imbalance


I've applied eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner, foundation and lipstick on my hand. Let's see the power of Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water ! ❤

As you can see, the first cotton pad can't cleanse all of my make up, especially for mascara, eyeliner, and lipstick (you can see the stain there). But the second cotton pad can cleanse it all, there's no more stain hihi


So, I got this product at Feb 20th, and it means that I've tried it for a few days.
The texture is liquid and totally looks like water (it's transparant). What I love about this product = it can cleanse my face (foundation, eye makeup, lipstick). I need 1~2 cotton pads for light make up, and like 3~4 cotton pads for bold make up.
But, I should tell you this, I can feel a lil' bit "sting" sensation (like hot or something?) when I use it on my face, especially at my acne and cheeks. But it doesn't make me breaks out, and I feel like my acne "calmed down" a lil' bit. There's no fragrance in it (unscented), but I can smell the fresh "tea tree leaf", and it kinda refreshing :D It doesn't make my skin dry, and not sticky at all ! I just lovin' how clean and fresh my face is after using Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water. Aaaa my new favorite ! Glad that I got a chance to try this hihi.

This is the before-after I use Benton Tea Tree Cleansing Water, there's no significant change, and I can't tell you more about the result because I just used it for a week. But it's super good to clean up your make up !

Rate : 4/5
Price : KRW 17,000 (from Benton Korean website)

Turn back the time to your healthy & fresh skin with Benton !
