Innisfree Black Tea Youth Enhancing Line Review

 

RESET your skin.

That is a strong statement that caught my attention when I saw the Innisfree NEW START kit which includes 3 products from Black Tea Youth Enhancing Line.

Intensive skincare solution that quickly resets the look of skin with Reset Concentrate extracted from Jeju Black Tea, offering immediate relief effect for fatigued skin.  (Anti-aging/Brightening Functional)


“Reset” in my mind is like having a full, stress-free 8-hour sleep with a full blown skincare application the night before.  Is it possible for someone who sleeps late and uses only 3 products?  I tested this set immediately and here are the results!

Innisfree NEW START with Black Tea Ampoule Set

Includes:
  • Black Tea Youth Enhancing Ampoule (50ml)
  • Black Tea Youth Enhancing Cream (10ml)
  • Black Tea Youth Enhancing Skin (50ml)



Innisfree Black Tea Youth Enhancing Skin
Some would consider this a toner, Innisfree calls this a “skin enhancer”.  Both are similar in thought.  This product includes Beauty Green Tea (Innisfree’s exclusive green tea ) that has been naturally fermented and became “Black Tea”.  Did you know that in olden China, they believe black tea gives anti-aging properties due to the amount of oxidants.  

Most toners or liquid products are applied using cotton pads or balls, I prefer applying this using the palm of my hands. More product is transferred on my face rather than being absorbed by the cotton.

I apply a handful on my hand, rub the product between my hand gently and spread all over my facet.  The heat from my hand soothes my skin,  opens up my pores and prepares my skin to “absorb” the product.  

Once product is well spread on my face, I use a gentle tapping/dabbing motion all over face and neck.  This motion helps in quick absorption of the product while it soothes my skin.  It is also a way for me to check if I can move on to the next step —- skin less tacky, I am ready for the next step!

Innisfree Black Tea Youth Enhancing Ampoule

“Reset Concentrate” is Innisfree’s own active ingredient extracted from black tea that relieves skin fatigue.  This is a powerful antioxidant and anti-aging benefits help the stressed-out skin to quickly recover after a long, tiring day.  According to the brand, one single use of this ampoule improves skin’s moisture level by 31.9%, firmless by 25.4%, radiance by 4.7% and skin texture by 4.4%.

I obviously just copied those information above (italicized) and as a product reviewer, I always have doubts and wanted to test this star product by myself.

I have been a regular user of Innisfree Brightening Pore Skin Serum and I love it so much it will take me a while to warm up on other products.  Both products are different though, the Brighening Pore Skin is a serum while the Black Tea Youth Enhancing Ampoule is well…an ampoule.

Both products are housed in dropper applicator packaging but Brightening Pore Skin Serum is housed in plastic packaging while glass packaging for ampoule.  Ampoules are higher in potency and contains active ingredients so they needed o be house din a “controlled environment”, that explains the glass bottle.  If you want to know how the process is for those who uses both serums and ampoules, it is SERUM first then AMPOULE.

Now back to this Ampoule, remember, ampoules are SUPERCHARGED serums so it has high potency.

To apply, I press the dropper to take out the formula and transfer on the palm of my hand (as opposed to dropping it straight on my face),  Again, please note this product is higher in potency so better to spread out the product evenly before application.  That’s just a personal tip from me.

I gently apply all over face concentrating on areas that needed more hydration.  Upon application, I immediately felt a “boost” of hydration, you can see and feel it as you continuously massage all over the face.  In my case, I can feel some of my dry patches on my cheeks and chin immediately disappeared.  Don’t mind the redness of my face, I tend to go red from massage or tapping (even gentle movements) because I have sensitive skin.

At this point, I can already see significant improvement in terms of hydration and radiance.(Check out lower right photo from collage.)

Innisfree Black Tea Youth Enhancing Cream

Whenever I use ampoule, I use to stop there and maybe apply a super lightweight moisturizer because of the warm weather.  Since I am doing a full review of this line, I went ahead and tried their night cream once the ampoule is somewhat absorbed by my skin at least 60-70%.

The cream has a gel/cream consistency.  It does not feel super light as gel but not heavy as cream.  I like it that it has the best of both worlds!  The lightweight texture of a gel and heaviness of cream (in terms of hydration).  Innisfree calls this wax-like formula.

This night cream is packed with my favorite ingredient - HYALURONIC ACID.  A very potent moisturizing ingredient that helps hydrate your skin instantly.

I took a photo  of my bare face before and after trying the Black Tea Youth Enhancing Line.  As you can see, my skin looks the same but redness is visibly lessened especially on the sides of my nose and above my eyebrows.  If you check out my my cheeks and forehead, they have more radiance or glow.

I can’t comment on the anti-aging part as of the moment as I believe 2 weeks is not enough to be able to visibly see the effects with my naked eyes.  But having brighter and plump skin is already anti-aging enough!

After using all 3 products from the set, I did not have any allergic reactions like itchiness or redness, which I sometimes encounter when I add new product in between my usual skincare regimen.  I actually starting inserting the Black Tea Youth Enhancing Ampoule first for first 3 days before I go ahead with the Black Tea Youth Enhancing Skin and Cream.  

Since I am more of a lightweight skincare products wearer who “demands” for fuller hydration and bonus anti-aging properties, the Black Tea Youth Enhancing Ampoule is turning out to be my best friend at night because I like waking up with brighter-looking, plumper, hydrated skin!  I find myself getting excited to check out my reflection in the mirror early in the morning after face washing.  The glowing reflection made me continue to use these products.  Added bonus?  I appear to have full night rest but in reality, I only get 4 hours sleep! 

Of course, do not follow my bad sleeping habits.  A full night rest (6-8 hours) is important plus exercising as much as possible, and eating healthy food.  Drinking 8 glasses of water daily is also vital to have good-looking skin.

Overall, I am so happy to be able to test this new line from Innisfree.  Innisfree as a brand that never fail  my skin.  I don’t have to worry about allergic reactions because I have tested quite a number of their products and all of them earned positive reviews from me!
