Innisfree is a popular brand of natural Korean cosmetics that uses ingredients from the volcanic South Korean island of Jeju, a protected nature reserve. Due to the unique ecosystem, tropical, subtropical and even polar plants thrive on Jeju Island.
Innisfree products contain more than 15 ingredients from Jeju Island (green tea, orchid, volcanic powder, cherry blossom, mandarin, soy, camellia, canola honey, green barley, seaweed, aloe vera, blueberries and sea salt), obtained sustainable production and the use of advanced extraction methods that guarantee the purity and high efficiency of the ingredients in the finished products.
In periods when my skin needs deep cleansing, I use their mask and pore cleanser to clean the clay mask.
I used Innisfree light moisturizing gel-cream with green tea from Jeju Island this summer and I liked its light texture, effectiveness (mattifying and hydrating) and natural, subtle scent.
A unique variety of green tea and production technique
The Innisfree product line with organically grown green tea, which is produced by the double-pressing technique, is world-famous for the multiple beneficial effects that green tea has on the skin.
Since the green tea we drink is not the same variety used for skin care, Innisfree chooses varieties specifically because of their benefits in skin care, not because of taste. Thus, on an organic farm on the Korean island of Jeju, they developed a new variety “Beauty Green Tea” which was selected from 2401 Korean varieties of green tea. Rich in hydrating amino acids, of which there are as many as 16, the variety specializes in hydrating and moisturizing the skin.
The water of fresh green tea was obtained by the method of double squeezing
“Fresh Green Tea Water 2.0 ™”, which is used in the production of products from the green tea line, is obtained by extracting the nutrients of fresh green tea leaves. It is a significantly different green tea water, 3.5 times richer than the original and provides excellent moisturizing effects to the skin. Fresh green tea water hydrates and provides moisture to the skin to remove the feeling of tightness and dryness of the skin.
In the process of production, the organic leaves of green tea are torn off the stem, steamed for 30 seconds to retain nutrients and pressed. Its extract is then stabilized for freshness and purified for safest use. Moisture is squeezed out of the leaves twice, not once as in the production of a classic infusion, all in order to make the most of the benefits of green tea in skin care.
The cream has a light, fast absorbing texture and a white color. During the summer, self-application is enough, and with the arrival of colder days, I use it after the serum. Once absorbed, it mattifies the skin without leaving an oily glow. The skin is matte, ie sebum is under control almost all day, and the skin is hydrated without feeling tight and dry.
It has a subtle scent of green tea, and since the cream balances (balances) sebum secretion and hydrates the skin, it is ideal for combination and oily skin types, although the manufacturer states that it is intended for every type. It contains glycerin, shea butter, perfume and green tea extract.
The cream is applied in the morning and evening on cleansed skin of the face and neck, alone or after applying the serum.
