Review: Innisfree - The Green Tea Seed Cream
In todays blogpost I'm going to review the green tea seed cream of the Korean brand Innisfree. A week ago I reviewed the serum, see my review here if you missed it. I was positive about it but I wasn't blown away by it. Also this cream is one of their best sellers. Let me share my thoughts about it today.
Innisfree products are nature-based and the green tea ingredient is 100% organic and from Jeju Island. The green tea seed cream is enriched with green tea seed and green complex and of course from Jeju island. Green tea pure revives dry stressed skin by supplying abundant moisture.
WHERE TO BUY?
I received this cream from w2beauty.com. It's currently sold out there but they do have a lot of other Innisfree products available, go here. If you want to purchase the cream right away, you can purchase it at koreadepart, jolse, twofacemall and at ebay seller cosmeticmarket2012. The price is between $17 - $25.- including free shipping depending on where you buy it.
I'm totally in love with the packaging, it's recycled paper and it's green! The jar is green and sturdy too but you do need to get the product out with your fingers. Not so hygienic, but just make sure that your hands are clean when scooping the product out, you can use a spatula or just take out sufficient quantity at one go.
INNISFREE - THE GREEN TEA SEED CREAM
It contains 50ml of product, which means it will last for at least 3-4 months if you use this every day. You really don't need much product every time you use it.

TEXTURE & SCENT
It is creamy, light and you can spread it easily. I think this is suitable for the Summertime or at day during the Winter. People with an oily or normal skin type can also use this at night during Wintertime, but people like me with a combination dry skin or if you have dehydrated/ dry skin, you will need more moisture at night. I'm currently using this as my day cream together with the serum and my skin loves it! The serum alone wasn't enough to provide the moisture, but it works well together with this. It absorbs into the skin within a few seconds, it has a bit of a cooling effect and it leaves the face soft and supple. It has a very fresh scent which isn't overwhelming. It has a bit of a green tea and floral scent to it which I really like. I'm always looking forward to apply this on my face hahah (sounds weird huh?) it's just because I really like the scent, texture and it makes my face feel supple, soft, non-oily and non-sticky.

I can see why all beauty bloggers like this cream, I mean just look at all those pros above! What I really love about this is that it absorbs super quick while it leaves my skin soft and supple. And ohhh i just love the cooling effect and the scent of this cream, so fresh! Like I said before, I'm always looking forward to apply this cream on my face in the morning because it feels so good hahah.
