Review: iUNIK Propolis Vitamin Synergy and Tea Tree Relief Serums



***These products were given to us by iUNIK in exchange for our honest review. Remember that if you are to use these products YMMV.



iUNIK reached out to us about a little over a month ago and asked us if we wanted to try two of their serums in exchange for our honest review. After perusing their site we decided on the Propolis Vitamin Synergy and Tea Tree Relief serums. What really sold us about trying their products was how amazing the ingredient lists looked. Both serums included some of our favorites like Propolis, Tea Tree, Centella Asiatica, Honey, Rose Damascena, and Niacinamide. In addition, there was no alcohol in either formula and instead just lots of plant extracts.  We’ve been testing the serums for about a month now, and both are so excited to share our thoughts!

Both of these ingredients lists look pretty top notch. Neither serum has any major red flags on CosDNA or ingredients that we think look alarming.


What iUNIK instructs:

  • Using the dropper, gently apply an appropriate amount onto your face and let absorb.

What we do: 

  • Cleanse and tone
  • Apply one to two drops allover face
  • Gently pat in for better absorption
  • Follow with the rest of your routine (other serums, moisturizer, etc.)
  • Can be used both morning and night


Propolis Vitamin Synergy (tested by Sara)-

I absolutely love this serum! Propolis is one of my favorite ingredients, since its supposed to help inhibit the bacteria that causes acne inflammation. This serum contains 70% propolis extract making it an amazing daily treatment for my acne. It’s also super lightweight and non-sticky, which I’ve found to be rare for a propolis serum. It absorbs quickly and layers well under other serums and moisturizers without feeling heavy. Furthermore, after a month of using it I can’t deny that I have seen nothing but great results. I notice that within minutes after applying, my acne inflammation is less red and overtime my acne tends to heal quicker. Additionally, it has definitely helped to even and brighten my skin tone a bit.

Before using this serum, I was using the Cosrx Natural BHA returning A-sol to get my propolis fix but it contains quite a lot of alcohol. This serum has allowed me to continue to add the same amount, if not more, propolis to my routine with some extra hydration. I definitely recommend it for all skin types, especially those who suffer from inflammatory acne. Just beware if you have propolis or honey allergies.


  • Non-irritating formula
  • Affordable
  • Large amount of product
  • Non-sticky formula
  • Absorbs quickly
  • Layers well with other products
  • Calming
  • Moisturizing
  • Helps heal my post acne marks
  • Slight brightening effects
  • Non-scented


  • Not sure how well it works on wrinkles like claimed
  • No other complaints!

Tea Tree Relief (tested by Rosa)-

If you’ve been following us for a while, especially on our instagram you’ll know that both of us have hormonal acne that flairs up at least once a month. For me, this flair up is made even worse due to the fact that I have fungal acne. It leaves my whole face red and sensitive with little red bumps. At least, it did.

After using the Tea Tree Relief Serum I noticed that I don’t get red in the face every time my hormones act up. Not only does the Tea tree act as a great anti inflammatory but the Centella Asiatica works to heal what little bumps I have and to keep my complexion from getting patchy.

I will say, this serum isn’t a cure all, as it doesn’t really do anything about larger blemishes, and it doesn’t keep away the normal pimples I get from time to time. While I love that it’s been keeping my redness at bay, I still wonder if there isn’t a better product or something out there that will do the same thing while also brightening my complexion or taking care of my regular acne as well as my fungal.


  • Affordable
  • Works well for Fungal Acne
  • Reduces Redness
  • Hydrating
  • Layers well with other prodcuts
  • No Scent


  • I don’t see any affects of whitening or brightening skin tone.
  • Can be sticky but eventually absorbs completely.


Rating Scale

  • 1-Bad, had a reaction, would not buy again
  • 2-Did not work
  • 3-Worked, but nothing special
  • 4-Great product, but has the potential to be replaced
  • 5-Holy Grail, it’s the cat’s meow!

I don’t want to claim this serum is an HG so easily, but I might well be after a few more bottles. It’s definitely my favorite propolis product to date, and I highly recommend it for other propolis lovers and acne-suffers. 

Tea Tree Relief (tested by Rosa)-

Noona 3.5

I love the ingredients list, and as I said it’s helped majorly with fungal inflammation but I feel that it still doesn’t stop me from moving on to the next product in search of a HG.  I’d like to see how it compares to other products containing Tea tree.
