[Review] The Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum

We have always been a fan of green tea, Japanese green tea to be exact. These days, we drink a hot cup of green tea plus lemon grass before we head to bed. Green tea has been known for its anti-oxidant properties and health promoting qualities. Naturally, green tea infused skincare would be quite an appealing idea. We were delighted when we were presented by Innisfree Malaysia (here for more) to give one of their Green Tea skincare products a try some time back. 

Famous for its pristine fresh air, natural greens and organic farming, Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum is supposedly a part of the brand's 5-free system: free from parabens, synthetic colorants, mineral oil, animal-originated ingredients and imdazolidinyl urea (read more about it here if you are curious). That sounds awesome. This serum is actually the first step to your skincare, after your facial cleansing. It has as high as 75.9% Jeju Island green tea extract. This is a moisturizing serum with the organic Jeju green tea water and green tea seeds to hydrate your skin from within and what's best is that it is 100% squeezed green tea. Rich in amino acids and minerals, this sounds like one product that your skin will thank you for *_^

The Packaging
It comes in a simple but nicely packaged paper green rectangular box, with the brand's logo printed. Good to know that Innisfree encourages its consumers to recycle empty bottles in return for points collection, it is a part of their on-going keeping the environment clean Green Life Campaign philosophy. The serum is housed in a plastic green bottle with a pump dispenser and a cap. Simple and nice. Innisfree continuous use of 100% recyclable labels and packages made by recycling discarded tangerine peels along with eco-friendly soy oil ink for eco-friendly packaging and design is something worth mentioning. Other creative ideas include making Jeju seaweed paper by recycling the seaweed pushed up to the shores and use them to make paper package or using discarded green tea leaves and turn them into green tea paper.

The Experience
It is lightweight, with slightly runny consistency, super easy to glide on the skin and being absorbsed really well, with a light scent of green tea. We are always a fan of light-weight serum and find them really comforting, this one is no exception. As for how efficient it performs, we can only say that it keeps our skin pretty much hydrated and moist, perhaps due to its Dual Moisture-Rising Technology from the green tea and green tea seed oil. The fresh green tea water deeply hydrates the skin while the green tea seed oil creates a strong moisture barrier to keep the skin moisturized for a longer period of time. Nothing significantly improved sort of skin performance from the appearance stand point but most definitely a comforting and gentle one to be used on a daily basis as it does not feel heavy on the skin.

There are three types of Green Tea range for different skin type and concern though. The Green Tea Fresh Line for oily skin, The Green Tea Balancing Line for combination skin, The Green Tea Moisture Line for dry skin and The Green Tea Seed Line for special moisturizing and nourishing purpose.

The Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum is retailed at MYR90 for 80ml. Here to discover more of the brand and here for the latest updates via Innisfree Malaysia Facebook page. Thanks Innisfree Malaysia for the love! Will continue to enjoy the Jeju Island goodness.

Have a beautiful weekend ahead, lovelies *_^

With love,
