INNISFREE - Green Tea Seed Serum - Review

1:00 PM

I bought this serum a long time ago in a one of my Testerkorea hauls and I kind of forgot about doing a review about it, mostly because this wasn't what I was expecting. Read up to know my final thoughts and experience with this serum !

What the brand says

A moisturizing serum with organic Jeju green tea and green tea seeds that hydrate your skin from deep within. Rich in amino acids and minerals, green tea from Jeju's own green tea leaves hydrates your skin. 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 packaging

This serum comes in a cute green bottle containing 80 ml of product. The dispenser has a brown cap which is appreciated and the bottle is clear enough so that you can tell how much product is left. I actually love the color combination of green and brown, giving it and earthly vibe.

The product

This serum comes in a clear watery consistency  which gets absorbed fairly quickly. It has a refreshing feeling when you apply it on your skin.

My thoughts

 I loved this serum when I first bought it, I didn't patch test and I was just using it straight away without thinking much (big mistake !). The serum is hydrating and would be perfect for all skin types, however, dry skin would need other moisturizing products as this won't be enough. I used this product when my skin was all messed up from a disrupted skin barrier and it was dry and really tight, this product helped a bit but wasn't enough. 
However, I quickly realized that this product was breaking me out. It was a nice consistency, the packaging is cute and the effect isn't transcending but it's alright, however, my skin hated it. I broke out in tiny closed comedones and I had to stop using it. I did end up giving it away to my sister who liked it at first but broke out in a similar fashion. However, this product is one of Innisfree's most popular serum and is loved by many, it's not because it didn't work out for me that it won't for you either.

This product is perfect for :

Any skin types will like this product but oily skin type will love it as it gives hydration without being heavy and too much. Because the product is quite watery and absorbs well, it is also a perfect serum to apply before your makeup. If you're looking for a fresh and lightweight serum for the summer, this one is for you !

It was a bittersweet experience, but I've come to realize that a lot of Innisfree products just don't work with my skin.
