  • A patch test is a must, discontinue use if irritation occurs.

  • Keep away from children.

My experience with the product:

Packaging: The iunik tea tree relief serum comes in a glass bottle with dropper packaging. The packaging looks pretty and is convenient to use. But not really travel friendly in my opinion, because the bottle is made of glass.. However, the mini-size serum could be travel-friendly.

Colour and texture: The serum is light green in color. The texture is watery and lightweight. Suits best for oily skin types.
