[REVIEW] Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum

One important step in all Korean skincare regimes is serum. If you’re not too sure what serum is, here’s a definition for you:

serum is a product typified by its rapid absorption and ability to penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin, together with its non-greasy finish and intensive formula with a very high concentration of active substances.

Essentially, it’s a product that contains a high level of nutrients that should be well-absorbed by your skin. It sounds fantastic, but not every serum is made equal.

The first serum I ever used was this Innisfree Green Tea Serum. What I tried was a small sample, but I loved it so much that I’ve actually purchased a full-size version of it.


Product description

A moisturizing and nourishing serum containing eco-friendly Jeju fresh green tea and green tea seeds

Official Retail Price in Singapore: SGD 36


Ingredient list

The green Tea Extract (75.9%), Propanediol, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Ethanol, Glycerin, Betaine, The green Tea Seed Oil (208mg), Prickly Pear Extract, Orchid Extract, Tangerine Peel Extract, Camellia Leaf Extract, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia Extract, Grapefruit Extract, Orange Extract, Tangerine Extract, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Cetearyl Olivate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sorbitan Olivate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Cocoa Extract, Dextrin, Potassium Hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance

The first thing that caught my eye (probably yours too) is the 75.9% green tea extract!! That is honestly one of the most impressive % of a key ingredient I’ve seen in any of my skincare products. Some products highlight certain ingredients as their key selling point, but their ingredient list will usually have other ingredients (e.g. water) as their top ingredient. This serum, however, is truly a green tea concentrate on its own.

You’ll also see many other natural ingredients such as green tea seed oil, prickly pear, orchid, tangerine peel, camellia leaf… and all ranked high on the ingredient list! Looking at this already makes me feel like I’m getting my money’s worth.

Packaging: Green for green tea – straightforward enough. I like that it’s not very bulky, and comes with a pump that makes it easy for you to pump a sufficient amount of serum out at one go.

Texture: It has a very thin consistency which allows for fast absorption by the skin. As a hydrating serum, it definitely feels almost like water (lol), and doesn’t leave a sticky feeling on the skin.

Effectiveness: The serum smells strongly of green tea: not too overpowering, but definitely enough to convince you that it contains a strong percentage of green tea extract. I can’t say much about the nourishment, but when it comes to hydration power, I’m truly convinced that this product works.

I used to have very dry and even flaky skin for a period of time because I’m usually stuck indoors in a dry, air-conditioned room, and I was too lazy to even use moisturizer for days (yes, terrible, I know). However, after using this product for about two weeks, I noticed that my skin wasn’t as dry anymore. It is currently visibly more hydrated, and I haven’t had a flaky skin problem since then. My skin also feels more supple and hydrated throughout the day when I apply this – do take note that I usually apply this twice in a day (in the morning, and at night) to replenish the moisture in my skin.

I’ve had no breakout problems with this product, which is great for people with sensitive and acne-prone skin just like mine.


Final Verdict

This is definitely my favourite serum of all time.

It might be a tad difficult to convince anyone that their skin needs such a powerful boost of nutrients, but my favourite part about this serum is its hydration power.

I do believe that green tea extracts have a lot more benefits, of course. One of my favourite ingredients in facial masks is green tea (along with aloe vera) because it always leaves my face feeling clean and refreshed. It’s a little too early to say for now if my skin is truly benefitting from the nutrients in the serum, but I can vouch for its fast-acting hydration properties.

At SGD 36, this serum is not cheap. Frankly, I don’t usually buy such expensive skincare products (at least not in Singapore), but I made an exception for this because it’s been so effective.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Nose Pack

Time for a confession: part of the reason why I purchased this was because I needed to hit $20 for free shipping on Shopee. I wasn’t in particularly dire need of clearing my blackheads at that time, but let’s admit it, everyone’s gotta need a good nose strip at some point in time, right? I bought this in a box of 6, but I think they only sell individual packets in Singapore’s Innisfree stores.


Product Description

A nose pack containing Jeju volcanic scoria that removes blackheads and keeps pores clean.

Official Retail Price in Singapore: SGD 1 (for 1 piece)


Ingredient List

VP/VA Copolymer, Water/Aqua, Titanium Dioxide, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Ethyl Hexanediol, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, 1,2-Hexanediol, Volcanic Ash, Silica, Hamamelis Virginiana(Witch Hazel) Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Black Iron Oxide (CI 77499), Red Iron Oxide (CI 77491), Yellow Iron Oxide (CI 77492)

I’m actually quite surprised that this product’s second highest ingredient is water. You wouldn’t exactly be expecting water in your nose strip, but I’m guessing it could be the ‘glue’, which helps the strip to stick on your nose. The fact that there’s more lavender oil than volcanic ash is also quite unexpected, but overall I’m quite happy to see other beneficial ingredients like witch hazel extract.

Packaging: Very consistent with Innisfree’s eco-friendly, natural branding. It’s also very easy for you to tear open an individual packet, so I generally have not much to say about this.

WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT AHEAD

Effectiveness: The photos speak for themselves when I say that this pore strip is SUPER EFFECTIVE. I got a shock when I saw all these gunk trapped on the strip. I’ve seen my fair share of dirt when I use other brands’ but never so much before. It’s horrifying, but also actually very pleasing to see after you get over the initial shock. Of course, I’m extremely happy that this strip is effective because it means a cleaner nose for me.


Final Verdict

I’ve read some reviews online that this product is not good because it peels their skin off. I haven’t encountered this problem so far, and I think a possible reason it could happen is if you leave it on your skin for too long, so the glue (which is really sticky) dries up. My recommendation is not to put it on for more than 15 minutes, or you might not like this product even if they eradicate all your blackheads.

I would definitely repurchase this, but another good point to take note would be doing the necessary after-care (closing your pores using cold water, etc.), because this does such a great job in pulling out the dirt that your pores might be enlarged after that.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Flower Cotton Ink

As I’ve often said, I’ve been on the hunt for my favourite Eco Flower Tint in Innisfree stores for a long, long time. So when I finally saw a lip product that resembled the tint in the 2018 Jeju Colour Picker, I knew I had to get it.

(Can I also just say that the entire collection is gorgeous? It’s inspired by pastel-coloured hydrangeas in Jeju ~ I really wanted to get the highlighter but it was out of stock 😦 Sigh.)


Product Description

For that soft, diffused just-blotted look, our medium coverage liquid lipstick dries matte, doesn’t budge, and feels soft and comfy on the lips.

Official Retail Price in Singapore: SGD 15

Ingredient List

Purified Water, Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Cyclopentasiloxane, Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate, Octyldodecanol, Propanediol, Cetyl PEG/PPG-10/1 Dimethicone, Trimethylsiloxysilicate, Silica, Ethanol, Isododecane, Disteardimonium Hectorite, Titanium Dioxide, Synthetic Fluorphlogopite, Red Oxide of Iron, Methyl Methacrylate Crosspolymer, Red 202, Propylene Carbonate, 1,2-Hexandiol, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Polyglyceryl-6 Polyricinoleate, Dimethicone, Yellow 4, PhenoxyEthanol, Tocopheryl Acetate, Stevioside, Ethylhexylglycerin, Butylene Glycol, Distearyldimonium Chloride, Hydrangea Macrophylla Leaf Extract, Perfumery

The good news: no potentially-harmful chemicals/irritants!

The bad news: hydrangea macrophylla leaf extract ranks low here, there aren’t many natural ingredients used in this product 😢


Having to pick just one colour when all the colours look fantastic is indeed torture. (Un)luckily, this product comes only in five shades, so you won’t have to rack your brain so hard. Alternatively, if you’re feeling generous, you could even buy all 5 shades!

I eventually went ahead with no.5 after swatching at a physical store. It’s a beautiful pink – not too much of a bright pink, together with a tinge of coral.

Packaging: Very misleading – I got duped into thinking that it was my favourite Eco Flower Tint, all thanks to the packaging. Personal grievances aside, I thought that this product’s packaging is pretty good. it’s definitely compact enough to fit into any makeup pouch. What’s more, I love this little catch they designed in the lipstick – there’s a soft, satisfying click when you cap it back so that you know for sure you’ve capped it properly.

Usually, when I close the cap back after using my lipstick or concealer, I get a little worried that I didn’t really cap my products back properly and they will end up leaking everywhere. Thankfully this hasn’t happened to me yet, but it’s always nice to have a sort of guarantee and ease of mind, which is precisely what this

Colour: It looks like red in the swatch, but it actually applies pink on your lips. I would say it’s a coral pink?

Colour payoff & intensity: This lipstick’s colour payoff is amazing despite being marketed as ‘medium-coverage’ – just one swipe is definitely enough to coat your lips. It’s not too intense that you might end up having to blot off some lipstick – just enough to look naturally good.

Texture: It applies matte, but feels much softer and more comfortable than usual matte lipsticks. I definitely got reminded of Colourpop’s Ultra Blotted Lip and Peripera’s Airy Ink Velvet, both of which also apply matte while leaving a nice blotted, cotton-like feeling on the lips.

Taste & fragrance: The moment I applied this, I immediately thought that it tasted like a bandung rose drink. It smells and tastes like a rose, which I’m not complaining about because it’s great.

Staying power: With a bold claim that it ‘doesn’t budge’, I put it to the test on a few different days to see if it can survive long hours and multiple drinking & eating. It’s definitely capable of lasting if you’re going without food and drink for a few hours and still holds up very well even if you’re drinking.

However, it does not hold up as well after eating a meal – most of the colour is usually gone after your food is gone as well, with only a very slight tinge of colour left on the lips. It was slightly disappointing because I was honestly hoping that it wouldn’t budge, as advertised.


Final Verdict

I love the texture and colour of this lip product. Colour-wise, I don’t really have anything similar in my Peripera and Colourpop collection, so this feels like a great addition.

The staying power doesn’t bother me so much that I’ll stop using it, mainly because I really like how the product settles nicely on my lips with minimal effort on my part. With some liquid lipsticks, I always have to use a cotton bud to wipe off excess around the edges (because I’m not using a lip liner, oops), but with this Flower Cotton Ink, you don’t have to worry too much about a messy application. The staying power is also not that bad in comparison to most products I use, just that it falls short of its claims :/

Overall, I think this is one good product to try if you’re a big fan of a soft, blotted lip look. I definitely am, so you can be sure that I’ll consider buying the other shades in future.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Vivid Fruit Tint

In my attempt to find my favourite tint from Innisfree, I chanced upon this lip tint that was relatively affordable. It reminds me a little of lip tints from Etude House, but nothing really surprising about that since both brands are under the same umbrella company.


Product Description

A multi-sized lip tint blender with a thin and smooth sensation for delicate makeup

Official Retail Price in Singapore: SGD 6.50

Ingredient List

WATER, GLYCERYL POLYMETHACRYLATE, GLYCERIN, PROPANEDIOL, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, ALCOHOL, PENTYLENE GLYCOL, TREHALOSE, TROMETHAMINE, CARBOMER, RED 33 (CI 17200), GLYCERYL CAPRYLATE, YELLOW 6 (CI 15985), RED 27 (CI 45410), FRAGRANCE, DEHYDROACETIC ACID, YELLOW 5 (CI 19140), CITRUS GRANDIS (GRAPEFRUIT) PEEL EXTRACT, RUBUS IDAEUS (RASPBERRY) FRUIT EXTRACT, CITRUS AURANTIUM DULCIS (ORANGE) FRUIT EXTRACT, ACTINIDIA CHINENSIS (KIWI) FRUIT EXTRACT, PRUNUS ARMENIACA (APRICOT) KERNEL EXTRACT, CITRUS PARADISI (GRAPEFRUIT) FRUIT EXTRACT

I think it’s rather impressive that the ingredient list actually includes real fruit extracts (grapefruit, raspberry, orange, kiwi, & apricot!), although they’re ranked low on the list, meaning that there aren’t large traces of them.

In addition, I was searching the different chemicals included and found an interesting article on glycerin:

Glycerin is a compound that can be made from natural products such as vegetable oil, or can be synthesized from propylene alcohol. The result is an alcohol-based product that is an ingredient in many skin-care products. Glycerin, also called glycerol, can be used for both cosmetic purposes and as a treatment for medical conditions of the skin. Most people are very tolerant of glycerin, without experiencing irritation. The effects of glycerin on skin are a healthier, more natural-looking appearance.


They only have 2 shades available, which is a real pity. I picked Cherry, since I wasn’t quite too sure about making orange lips work for me.

Packaging: It looks very similar to Innisfree’s nail polishes, but I’m not complaining. It’s simple and clean, with a transparent bottle for you to see the colour (though I have to admit that the dark red is very misleading). It’s small and easy to carry around, which is a plus point.

Colour: Don’t be fooled by how dark red the tint colour looks like from the bottle. In reality, the colour is much closer to that seen on the applicator. I’ve forgotten to snap a swatch, but if I had to describe it, it looks very similar to the official lip swatch given by Innisfree. It’s a bright pink that’s actually very similar to that of my favourite Eco Flower Tint #2!

Colour payoff & intensity: I feel that this tint’s colour is a lot more intense than the Eco Flower Tint’s. I got a bit of a shock when I first applied it because the colour payoff was really strong and I wasn’t looking to wearing such a bold colour. Another con is that the colour application isn’t very even, and often stains my teeth more than my lips, which is really troublesome.

Staying power: I have pretty high expectations for lip tints’ staying power, because it is, after all, a tint. Even after meals and long hours, there should at least still be a visible trace of colour on the lips.

While this lip tint manages to pass the test after one meal, I find that its staying power is actually pretty limited. Although you’ll see hints of colour on the cotton pad after wiping your lips with makeup remover at the end of the day, you’ll see close to zero colour on your lips after one full day.


Final Verdict

While I appreciate the initial colour intensity, I expected a much better staying power from Innisfree’s lip tints, so frankly I was slightly disappointed with this. The uneven application was also quite a let-down.

I wouldn’t say it’s a replacement for my favourite lip tint, but it definitely has its own merits. Its best selling feature is, of course, its affordable price. I think at a price of SGD6.50, this lip tint is worth buying if this is your first foray into makeup, or if you’re a bit tight on cash at the moment but still need a nice lip tint to complete your makeup.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Eyeshadow Brush [Base]

This is my first review of a brush – milestone unlocked! I’ve been meaning to get an eyeshadow base brush for some time because I find that the mini eyeshadow tip(?) that comes with eyeshadow palettes such as those of Etude House and Innisfree a little too small and underwhelming.


Product Description

A shadow brush for base colour that builds the foundation for eye makeup

Official Retail Price in Singapore: SGD 8.50


I love the wooden handle of the brush – it fits the directive of Innisfree being a natural brand, and it makes me feel like I’m actually an artist using a paintbrush to paint my eyelids. It’s a big reason why I chose to buy my brush from Innisfree (strange, I know).

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

On first touch, the brush hairs/bristles are really smooth and fan out nicely. This is important for application of eyeshadow, because this ensures that your eyeshadow will be picked up and spread out evenly.

PC311385.JPG

I took this photo after applying my Innisfree eyeshadows on my eyelids, in case you are wondering why it looks so dirty haha. You can actually see how the brush hairs pick up the eyeshadow particles.

After months of using tiny eyeshadow applicators, I’ve never been happier to use a product that saves me so much time and effort. I like to use a nude shade as a base colour, but with the tiny applicators, I never managed to get a nice and even application. It was always either too muted or too intense (because I kept applying it over and over again).


Final Verdict

I love this brush for everything from the brush handle to the hairs. It really feels like I’m using a paintbrush, and I think of makeup as a form of art on your face, so the image really sticks.

Price-wise, I recommend this as a good investment if you can’t do without eyeshadow as part of your makeup process.

I think Innisfree has done a great job with these brushes, and I’m really looking forward to getting more of their brushes in future.

[REVIEW] Innisfree Glow Tint Lip Balm

I recently went to Korea and was determined to stock up on one of my favourite lip tints – the Innisfree Eco Flower Tint but to my extreme horror, I couldn’t find it at ANY of the Innisfree stores I visited. I probably searched all the Innisfree stores in Myeongdong and yet there was no trace of the product line at all! It’s still listed on the international website AND the Singapore one, so why is it not sold in physical stores in Korea?? 😦

In my disappointment, I decided to try alternatives. I’m always been very impressed by Innisfree’s lip products, so I felt that it was still worth giving other products a shot. Considering that it was winter and my lips were drying out from the cold & dry weather, I went ahead to buy their lip balm.


Product description

1. Moisturizing lip balm with smooth texture 
This smooth melt-in textured lip balm provides the lips with rich moisture. 

2. For bright and beautifully colored lips 
Gentle colors saturate the lips and give a natural and yet beautiful look. 

3. Moisturizing oil from vegetable for long-lasting moisturizing effect 
Vegetable Oil Complex* provides moisture and nourishment while holing color to keep the lips moisturized and beautifully colored for a long time. 
*Vegetable Oil Complex: macadamia nut oil, almond oil and linseed oil

This ingredient list was so long that I balked at having to put everything in, so I just picked the one for the shade I bought (no.2). Most of the ingredients which differ from shade to shade are mostly just due to the colouring and flavour.

Our top ingredient here is tridecyl trimellitate, which is rated as good by Paula’s Choice. it’s a synthetic ingredient added as a skin-softening agent and texture enhancer, which sounds pretty good for chapped lips. Our next few ingredients also serve almost the same purpose and have been all rated as dermatologically good for your skin, so you can definitely use this without much fear of irritation or swelling.

Packaging: Doesn’t this product remind you of the Eco Flower Tint? :’)

Colour: I bought shade no.2 Camellia, the same shade in which I bought the Eco flower tint in. I find the pink very easy to wear on any day with any look, and it really helps to brighten up the complexion.

Colour payoff & intensity: This is surprisingly pigmented for a lip balm (see swatch above), which is also I guess why Innisfree proudly markets it as a lip tint.

Texture: It leaves a nice, moisturizing gloss on your lips without feeling sticky and gross.

Effectiveness: As a tint balm, I put both functions to the test in Korea – firstly to see how long it lasts, and secondly if the lip balm really helps in moisturizing the lips.

On the tint side, it does not perform as well as I would want. However, considering that it is a glossy lip balm, I think it does a fairly decent job with the lasting power. I find myself having to reapply every time after I eat or drink to get more colour on my lips, but the colour generally stays on (faintly) for a few hours.

As a lip balm, I think it has been pretty good. I always had to reapply lip balm almost every hour because the air in Korea was so dry, but I found myself reaching for this almost every day after I tried it for the first time. If I wasn’t overly concerned about the colour, the lip balm was capable of keeping my lips feeling decently moisturized for a few hours with no reapplication.


Final Verdict

If you live in a region that has low humidity but balk at the idea of having to reapply lip balm AND lipstick every hour, this product is for you. I think it’s priced affordably, especially considering its dual function.

I’ve never found the need to use lip balm in Singapore because of the high humidity, but I changed my mind after using this one.
