Hello everyone, I'm back with another new review!
As you may already know, the changing of seasons means awful skin for me. I still don’t know why, but whenever the weather or season changes, my skin gets really messed up for a few months. The daily moisturizer I used everyday is not enough to protect my skin against Seoul's strong drying winds. Since the weather cooling up, my skin was very dry at the same time, red and blackheads.
So, today I'm going to review something that I exactly had for some time now, it's Innisfree's "The Green Tea Seed Deep Cream" (이니스프리 더 그린티 씨드 크림). This moisture cream with Jeju eco-friendly green tea seed ingredient is formulated to provide excellent moisturizing + anti-oxidant effects to my skin, combined with green tea water, green tea seed oil and green tea EGCG that promote amazing effects to your skin help create dewy, resilient and clear complexion. Innisfree is famous for its excellent natural ingredients. I bought an item for 20,000 Won.
Innisfree products are nature based and the green tea ingredient is 100% organic and from Jeju Island. Innisfree The Green Tea Seed Cream with green tea seed and green complex: Enriched with Green Tea seed and Green Complex from pure Jeju Island, Green Tea Pure revives dry, stressed skin by supplying abundant moisture. Green tea seeds, cherishing the pure moisture in the ground, fills your skin with moisture. Green tea seeds bloom flowers in autumn to bear the energy of all four seasons and take 2-3 times longer to bloom than other places, because of "moisture," the most important factor of germination. Green tea trees like and dislike moisture. What does this mean? Green tea spreads its roots to deeper grounds to pump up the purest water. Because of this property, its seeds are called moisture seeds.
There are cute sticker on the lid of the jar.
The bottle is dark green, and clear so you can see through and judge how much is left in the bottle. It contains 100ml of product, which means it will last for at least 5-7 months if you use this every day.
This product doesn't come with a spatula for you to scoop the cream out, some of you might be concerned for the hygiene as you have to scoop out the product with your fingers. I suggest you get a small spoon, or feel free too scoop them out with a cotton swab, or just make sure you wash your hands before using your fingers to get the cream out.
This cream is great for dry and sensitive skin types all year long since it is both suitable for winter, or autumn. This is super lightweight, non greasy, fast absorbing and very hydrating cream which I have been surely enjoying this season and I am quite sure I am going to repurchase this for next autumns or winters.
How to use:
Apply an appropriate amount onto thoroughly cleansed face and neck area. Then gently smooth for better absorption.
Honestly, my first impressions: I couldnt find any green tea scent in it!
Even though it doesn't actually smell like green tea but the scent is mild, fresh scent which isn't overwhelming, and good for people like me, because I really sensitive towards strong smells.
The texture it is creamy, light and it also absorbs easily after a few minutes. This is very hydrating without increased feelings of oiliness or stickiness. It has a bit of a cooling effect and it leaves the face soft and supple.
This awesome cream became one of my favorite moisturizer ever since I first tried, it it is an amazing moisturizer and skin protector at the same time: it protects sensitive and dry skin from dryness, dust, cold, and rough weathers. It also soothes, calms irritated skin and it is suitable for both winter and autumn. People with an oily or normal skin type can also use this at night during wintertime, but people like me with a dry skin or if you have dehydrated, you will need more moisture at night.
The packaging is very simple, and cute box design.
