WHERE TO BUY?
I got it from Jolse.com, which is an online website which sells Korean beauty products. I heard a lot about this shop and especially about the massive amount of samples that they give to their customers at every purchase O.O. This is definitely not a joke.. just wait until the end of this blogpost and you will see. Their assortment is huge and their products are sold for a reasonable price too. They sell the Innisfree Calming Cleansing Water (link to product) for $23.38 and offer worldwide free shipping without a minimum purchase.
INNISFREE CALMING CLEANSING WATER
It's a cleansing water with Jeju dandelion and green extracts to cleanse the skin and leave it refreshed, moisturized and soft. They used natural derived surfactant and 95% of natural derived ingredients to reduce irritation on the skin. This cleansing water is from their cleansing line with dandelion and green complex (see assortment below). This line is advertised to be very gentle on the skin, remove dirt, stress and dullness without stripping your natural oil.
This product has a liquid texture, is very runny and comes in a pump packaging which I adore. It includes 300ml of product. It's stated that it's 5-free : free of sulfate surfactants, mineral oil, animal ingredients, colorant and synthetic fragrance.
According to the website it has the following scents:
• base note: woody
• mid note: floral
• top note: fruity (citrus & herbal)
Unfortunately I don't like the scent that much. The scent is unlike the scent from their green tea line. It has quite a strong floral scent to it.
HOW TO USE & HOW IT FEELS
Put your cotton pad on it, press 2 times and your cotton pad will be soaked with cleansing water. It feels calm and cool on the face. It's refreshing, moist and not sticky at all. I usually use this after I used my HadaLabo face wash to remove the make up residue off of my face. It does a great job on removing make up.

• love the pump packaging - makes it easy to use
• does a great job on removing make up/ cleaning the skin
• calm, moist, fresh and non-sticky finish
• lots of product for an affordable price
• suitable for sensitive skin
• the floral scent (personal preference)
• not suitable for traveling
It's a great cleansing water which makes your skin feels calm, moist and refreshed. I'm happy that it doesn't feel sticky and it really makes your skin clean, it does a great job on removing make up too. It just does what it says. The only downside is the strong floral scent, but that's just my personal opinion. People who like floral scented products might love this.
I regret that I didn't get the Innisfree green tea pure cleansing water instead. This was probably perfect for me since the scent is the same as their green tea skincare line which I adore.
Like I said before, Jolse.com is very generous with giving free samples at every purchase. Besides this product, I got 3 other Innisfree products which I'm going to review soon (STAY TUNED!). Check out the amount of samples that I received for this order O_O!!
note: this product was sent to me for review purposes, but this didn't affect my opinion about the product.
