Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum Review


Finally putting up the most talked about Serum when Innisfree arrived in the Philippines - the Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum.

First things first, WHEN do you apply serum?  That is a question I've been asked so many times so let me clear this up for you before I share to you my full review.

Serums are best applied twice a day and this is to be used immediately after cleansing and toning.  On days I am too lazy to apply moisturizer (especially on a hot, humid day), I use this alone and apply sunscreen before going out.  I find serums to be hydrating enough to keep my skin plump and healthy throughout the day.

Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum Says ---
A moisturizing serum with organic Jeju green tea and green tea seeds that hydrate your skin from deep within!  More moisture and freshness with 100% green tea. Rich in amino acids and minerals, green tea from Jeju's own green tea leaves hydrates your skin. 
Dual Moisture-Rising Technology™ derived from green tea and green tea seed oil . The fresh green tea deeply hydrates your skin and the green tea seed oil creates a strong moisture barrier to keep your skin moisturized longer. 

The first thing to apply after a face wash! 
As the first skincare product you use, it helps hold moisture in your skin and prevents moisture loss.

Pros
  • Great packaging.
  • Light and watery texture, easy to gets absorbed into skin.

Cons

  • Some may find this to be not enough in terms of hydration but I don't recommend to use this alone, best to follow up with moisturizer.

Overall
A quick drying, great textured serum that helps hydrate the skin keeping skin soft and glowing.

Tips
  • Best to use twice a day, day and night.
  • Tap on skin instead of rubbing to keep skin soft, plump and smooth.
  • Though a little goes a long way for some users, I find using 2-3 pumps is best especially if your skin needs extra hydration.  
  • Best applied after cleansing and toning.
  • Best to follow up with your favorite moisturizer.

Will I repurchase?
Yes.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Everyone.  Works for ALL Skin types.

The green bottle is just amazing! 
And of course pump-packaging will always be a winner to me.

I like to apply on very clean and toned face with a patting motion.
