Innisfree Jeju Cherry Blossom Tone-Up Cream Review

What are Tone Up Creams?

Ask me right now because I'm definitely answering #lol

As opposed to moisturizers being well...ahm..moisturizers?  (Great job Nikki!)  Okay, seriously speaking, moisturizers are used to "hydrate" your skin.  So is a tone-up cream similar to the moisturizers we know?

Maybe...if a Tone-Up cream includes hydrating ingredients.  To set the record straight, Tone Up Cream works by brightening and evening out your skin tone.  That said, they usually contain brightening ingredients such as fruit extracts (as seen in this product from Innisfree!)

When do you apply such product?  Usually at the last part of your skincare - if you have dry skin like I do, you may want to finish up with your favorite moisturizer then use the Tone-Up Cream as a pre-makeup routine.
In layman's term, Tone-Up cream is what I call "correctors" for the face!  This helps even out your skin and create brighter looking complexion especially for those with sallow skin.

Innisfree came up with their own Tone-Up Cream last year and I was able to test this out a couple of times before I write a decent review.

Priced at Php1,250.00 locally, this is under the Jeju Cherry Blossom line and what I like about this cream is the added moisturizing properties!  The product comes in a tub like on photo and it has an almost gel like texture which is perfect for our weather.

To some who like the more natural effect of "whiter looking skin", Tone-Up Cream from Innisfree is the way to go because it gives instant brightening effect immediately or on first use.  I like to apply all over my skin evenly using my clean fingers and massage through with a patting motion after.

The product has a hint of pink shade which is the perfect color to create bright looking skin.  At first use, you can see how it instantly brightened my cheeks, I worry about the white cast but give it a couple of minutes, the white cast will subside and blend into your skin's temperature like you have nothing on!

Before and After
As opposed to brightening primers, the Innisfree Tone-Up cream is more subtle so you may feel free to pile up a 2nd layer for more brightening effect.  As for me a thin layer is enough for a subtle brighter looking skin!  I can always add more glow with the help of makeup.

What I like about this product is that it smells great and it is indeed super lightweight.  I love how I sometimes can skip moisturizer because the Innisfree Jeju Cherry Blossom seems not to work as a tone-up cream, it also works as a day moisturizer as my skin has an even film of moisture all throughout the day!

Overall, I like this product!  Will keep on using this because I'm happy with the effect.

Have you tried Innisfree Jeju Cherry Blossom Tone-Up Cream?

  1. Tried this during my travel to HK and it's super lightweight. I love how this moisturized my skin during their cold weather. :)

  2. I am a big fan of Innisfree products and a month back got this amazing Cherry blossom tone up cream. It's effect, feel and mid fragrance is unbelievable, my skin feels great and pampered after using it. It's indeed a miracle for my skin :)

  3. Is innisfree toneup cream is water and sweat resistant?
