Innisfree green tea balancing skin | Review

Hey, lovelies…  Some of you might already be familiar with 10 step Korean skincare routine, while some of you are still trying to figure out the nomenclature of these Korean skin care products. I am somewhere in between. I am currently following a 6 step Korean skincare routine from past 2 weeks and Today, I am going to talk about Innisfree green tea balancing skin. “Skin” in k-skincare refers to a toner.  Innisfree actually has 3 versions of this toner and I felt this balancing one is most suitable for my normal-dry-combination skin 😛

Read below to know how I use the product and how it worked for me…

 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION :

Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Skin is a liquid toner made with eco-friendly Jeju green tea to moisturize the skin. It is more moisturizing and refreshing than ever before! It leaves your skin hydrated and restores your skin’s natural balance. With a water-like texture, it applies smoothly and absorbs quickly without any stickiness. The natural moisturizing agent betaine, derived from amino acids, provides intense moisture for combination skin to restore the skin’s natural balance

 INGREDIENTS

 

PRICE AND AVAILABILITY :

INR : 1200/- for 200ml, It is availaible on Nykaa, amazon

PACKAGING :

I feel the packaging of Korean skin care products is most beautiful and is encouraging to use them. The innisfree green tea balancing skin comes in a carton box which is leafy green in color.  It’s name and logo is  on one side. Most of the information on carton box is written in Korean. only on one side  we find  necessary information like ingredients and directions to use is mentioned in English. As you open the carton box, you will find a green colored sturdy big bottle of the actual product. This bottle is indeed non-breakable and quite beautiful. The bottle as has all necessary information on it. It has a bottle green screw cap and is further secured with a small white lid.  It is a bulky bottle.

My take on Innisfree green tea balancing skin 

Koreans generally apply serums first and then the skin (What we use as a toner), I just need 2-3 drops of innisfree green tea balancing skin to cover my face and neck, My skin amazingly absorbs this toner and feels so much nourished and prepped for the upcoming skin care routine. The innisfree toner is actually like a milky liquid, which also moisturizes skin while balancing its pH levels. It has a fresh leafy smell to it. I use innisfree pomegranate essence and pomegranate cream followed by this toner. (review coming up soon)  The innisfree green tea balancing skin has indeed made my skin so much even toned and firm. My pimples started reducing after just 2 days of using it. Now I don’t have acne but just acne scars for which I am planning to purchase a good scar reducing cream from Innisfree. But right now, I am totally in love with this toner, it is just perfect for my skin type. If you are new to Korean skin care routine, I suggest you to start with this range of innisfree toners at first.

Monsoon weather doesn’t suit my skin at all, and you know it rains almost everyday in Bangalore, somehow whatever products I used, I wasn’t much satisfied. Now, I am so glad I invested in this toner. I have used innisfree sheet masks nose strips and hand creams before and I have quite loved them . The korean skin care is certainly expensive but it is actually worth it. I bought this green tea balancing skin at the time when nykaa had an offer, where in I got entire range of pomegranate tester kit free. Wasn’t that a nice deal !! I guess, the offer is still on nykaa and you go ahead and make a purchase.

PROS:

  • Eco friendly, free of parabens and animal derivatives
  • A 5-free product
  • Sturdy and beautiful packaging
  • Made of 100% green tea extracts from jeju island
  • Does what it claims
  • Maintains the pH levels of skin and calms down acne
  • moisturizes skin while toning it.
  • Doesn’t irritate skin
  • Value for money, Works as per claims and big bottle shall last for 6 months.

CONS

  • I wish it came in smaller size as well
  • Contains fragrance  (though very mild)

MY RATING: 4.5/5

FINAL THOUGHTS :

Overall, Innisfree green tea balancing skin is an amazing korean skin care toner, It has suited my normal acne porne skin very well. It has reduced the appearance of pimples, It has never irritated my skin. It in fact helped my skin absorb the moisturizer well. Ever since I started using this, my skin is thanking me, my pimples are gone, my skin appears firm and smooth. I suggest everyone who is struggling with pimples to go ahead and buy this !
