[Review] Innisfree The Green Tea Seed Cream / 이니스프리 더 그린티 씨드 크림

Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Hello, dreamers! Today I'll be doing a review on the Innisfree The Green Tea Seed Cream. I have so many products from The Green Tea Line and I absolutely love all of them. I actually haven't used a cream in quite a while so I really needed a new one now that my skin is becoming dry during winter. If you've read my Skincare reviews before you will already know that I'm struggling with clogged pores and breakouts. I was thinking about getting the Innisfree Green the Balancing cream at first since it seemed like a good option for my combination/trouble skin, but when I told the staff at Innisfree about my problem and asked them which cream would suit me best they recommend this Green Tea Seed Cream. It's apparently good for trouble skin because it's moisturising and doesn't contain the type of oils that can usually clog pores. It's also very popular so I decided to go with this one. Let's take a closer look!

Innisfree The Green Tea Seed Cream

[Description] Enriched with fresh green tea seeds and squeezed green tea from the pure Jeju Island to deliver abundant moisture and nourishment deep into your skin. This antioxidant moisture cream is formulated with freshly squeezed jeju green tea and green tea seeds to create a clear and dewy skin from deep within.

[What it is]
1. Deep moisturizing cream infused with pesticide-free Jeju green tea and green tea seed oil that instantly provides intense hydration to replenish the skin with moisture and nutrition
Fresh green tea makes the dry skin moist, and green tea seed oil gives water-retention effects to trap hydration deep in the skin for highly-moisturizing and highly-nourishing care.

2. Freshly squeezed green tea - green tea energy that delivers deep moisture and nutrition
Freshly squeezed Jeju green tea rich in abundant minerals and amino acids makes the skin's texture watery.

3. Dual moisturizing with fresh green tea and green tea seed oil
Green tea seed oil provides deep moisture for dry skin, and forms a double moisture shield to retain intense hydration deep in the skin.

4. Green tea EGCG for a powerful antioxidant moisture effect
Highly antioxidant green tea EGCG with watery, soft cream-like texture forms a nourishing & hydrating shield for smooth, moist skin.

[How to use] Apply an appropriate amount onto thoroughly cleansed face and neck then gently smooth for better absorption.

This cream container has the original Innisfree look and it contains 50ml. I really like the minimalistic but somehow cute design of their products.

[My Experience] I think this is a really solid cream because it helps to keep my usually oily/combination skin moisturised during the dry winter without making it break out. I like to use this cream together with the Green Tea Serum every morning and night to keep my skin soft and moisturised throughout the day/night without making it oily. The cream has just the right consistency since it's neither too rich nor too light. It nourishes and moisturises my skin just enough, without being overwhelming. It absorbs relatively quickly and I can usually go right into my makeup routine after letting it absorb a little bit.

[Overall] I think this cream is excellent for pretty much all skin types because It's very balanced. It provides a decent amount of moisture and is also very refreshing and smoothing which is good for both oily and dry skin. I personally don't have sensitive or easily irritated skin, but many people who reviewed this product at Innisfree's page also said that it was great for their sensitive skin. However, I read one review by someone who has very dry and sensitive skin and tried this cream. He/she said that the cream apparently made his/her skin irritated and it seemed to be an allergic reaction. So if you do have extremely dry and/or sensitive skin like this person has, this cream might not work for you. It's simply case by case.

Thank you so much for reading. I hope this review was helpful! Bye for now~
