(Event) DKSH Launches Meditree Tea Tree // Stay Clear Stay Natural

The other day I tagged along Elana for a skincare event after our OSIM event.

So glad they are ok with me there. ^^


Never heard before.

But from the packaging it looks like an all natural and for acne kind of skin to me.

Indeed, Meditree Tea Tree skincare range uses pure, organic, and naturally derived ingredients to help cleanse and clarify acne prone skin.

It is 100% natural and organic skincare brand from Australia.
Apart form Malaysia, it is also available in Australia, New Zealand, Vietnam, Hong Kong, Japan, UAE and Russia, and Whole Foods Markets in Canada.

About Meditree:

Made up of "Medicinal Tree" - encapsulates purity and tranquility of nature, combining ingredients with active vitamins, herbal extracts and essential oils to create a simple and nourishing acne skin solution for consumers with different skin types

Ms Chua I-Lin (Senior Manager, Product Management Consumer Health, Healthcare, DKSH Malaysia) say, "The theme of 'Stay Clear, Stay Natural', means that Meditree aspires to deliver fresh and natural skin care solution WITHOUT synthetic fillers, preservative and foaming agents"

Dr Nazirin Arrifin (renowned dermatologist from Pantai Hospital) also talks to us about the various causes and treatments available for various acne problems we face. She also adds that having acne problems is a very common thing (ie. 70-90% teens and young adults face them). Lucky for those who are blessed with great skin! Me? Well, I face them on and off all the while. It is best to treat it at early stages to prevent permanent scarring and such.

Causes of acne:

Hormonal (Puberty, Period, Preggie, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome)
Genetic (if both parents have it)
Greasy/ Oily Substance (works in kitchen or applied too oily products on face)

Psychological Effects:
Damaged self esteem and confidence
Social withdrawal

Treatment for acne: 
Topical creams or gel
Extraction (tools...)

Ingredients to Avoid (coz it'll block pores):
Palmitate, mineral oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, lanolin & methyl lactate
(I found a list from HERE)

Tips to prevent acne / care:
Apparently for cleanser and scrub we can do it in circular motion. But when applying hydrator and so on we should use tapping motion as to avoid clogging of pores. Also do not apply more than you need to prevent clogging too!
Such helpful tips!

Meditree Tea Tree skincare range includes:

Tea Tree Facial Cleanser
(100g   RM20.90*) 
Use day and night. Apply it on wet skin in circular motion.
Men with more oily and rougher skin can use more frequently.

Tea Tree Face Scrub & Mask
(50g   RM23.75*)
You may use 1-2 times weekly. Apply it on wet skin in circular motion too.
For mask, apply and leave it on for 10 minutes before rinsing off well.
It is a great deep cleansing step and is the best seller in Australia.

Tea Tree Hydrator
(50g   RM23.75*)
Use day and night. Pat on more for drier areas and less on more oil prone areas.

Tea Tree Acne Gel
(15g   RM14.55*)
Use 1-2 times daily when required. Apply on affected area only.

100% Tea Tree Oil
(10ml   RM28.00*)
No direct contact if you are afraid of sensitivity, instead, mix with jojoba oil or such before applying it on pimples/acnes. If you are not sensitive, you may apply 1-2 drops on affected area.

Oily, combination & acne prone skin.

Congrats Meditree!

Wanna share with you a bit on my thoughts of testing the products that day!
All of it gives a very cooling and refreshing feeling after removal and application of products.
I like the scrub as it is slightly different from the usual beads. Dr Nazirin says that the scrub of Meditree is just nice as it isn't too small (as too small particles in scrub may clog pores).
Toner, yes, don't have that in this series as Dr Nazirin says that sometimes for certain problematic skin do not require toner but more oil-free moisturizer and sunscreen.
It is also great that we can still wear make up after all that skincare step from Meditree.

FYI: If I have any active acne in the very near future, will update again for my skin. But, if you happen to use it before I review it myself, do comment below on how it works for your skin! Would love to know! ^^

Thanks again Elana for the invite! <3

For those of you with acne concern and have yet to find the right brand of product for you, maybe you can try this as it is quite affordable and is now available in local pharmacies nationwide!
