Review: Innisfree - The Green Tea Seed Serum

OH MY… I heard soooo many good things about this product! I was so happy when I received this, i'm talking about the green tea seed serum of the Korean brand Innisfree. This serum is one of their best sellers. I was very excited to try Innisfree products out since they are nature-based and the green tea ingredient is 100% organic and from Jeju Island. Want to read my thoughts about this product? Keep on reading!

It's a moisturizing & nourishing serum with organic green tea seeds from Jeju Island to fill the skin with suppleness and clarity. This serum creates a dewy complexion, without leaving a greasy, sticky feeling afterwards. One pump of this citrus smelling serum will leave you with supple, dewy and hydrated skin. This serum is part of Innisfree's 6-free pledge: free from parabens, pigments, mineral oil, ethanol, benzophenone and animal ingredients.

One bottle contains 80ml. I got this one from w2beauty.com for $29.22 (link to product) including worldwide free shipping.

It comes in a bottle and a pump. I seriously love the green packaging and even the box is from recycled paper ^^! There is also a fitted plastic cap which makes it easy to close and travel with.

The texture of this serum is liquidy and feels lightweight and it also absorbs quickly into my skin. There is no sticky feeling afterwards. The serum has a refreshing and pleasant citrus scent. The color of the serum is white.

One and a half pump is enough for my entire face. Just apply it on a cleansed face and I like to dap it onto my skin with my fingertips to let it absorb better. Make sure to use the serum in this order: Serum - Lotion - Essence - Eye Cream - Cream (Deep Cream)

Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Alcohol, Propanediol, Diethyoxyethyl Succinate, Dipropylene, Glycol, Glycerin, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Orchid Extract, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis Seed Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Extract, DL-Panthenol, Betaine, Trehalose, Niacinamide, PEG/PGG-17/6 Copolymer, BIS-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, C12-16 Alcohols, Potassium Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Phenyl Trimethicone, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Cellulose Gum, Palmitic Acid, Hydogenated Lecithin, Octyldodeceth-16, Dextrin, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance.

I'm liking this product ^^. I've been using this serum for a few weeks now and i am still liking it. I also think that the quality is great for the price, but I gotta admit that it's not an amazing product, i'm not blown away by it. I have a combination dry skin and I like using this product to give my skin a bit of extra moisture. Using this on its own isn't enough of course, a serum isn't made to use it on its own. I like to use it together with my Hada Labo lotion and the Innisfree Green Tea Seed Cream which I will also be reviewing later. My skin always look dewy, feel fresh & moist and smooth as well after application. I only use this in the morning since I think that the moisture level isn't high enough and I like serums with more benefits for the night time. It's overall a nice product for the morning to give your skin a bit more moisture, but you do need to use it together with more moisturizing products.

Who might like this product? I think that people with an oily or combination oily skin type will like this product. To people with a dry or combination dry skin type I only recommend this to use this in the morning.
