REVIEW : Innisfree "The Green Tea Seed Serum"

Because my last post is a 'fashion' related post, now it's beauty time! 

This time I'm going to review a skin care product that have been my savior for this past months! This is a limited edition of the Green Tea Seed serum (only the packaging, they still have the original in the Green Tea Seed line) - comes with 3 colors blue, red, green, because who doesn't love to have choices? I pick up the blue one! (Only the packaging that is different between the colors, the product is the same!)

Innisfree's "The green tea seed serum" - This antioxidant-moisturizing serum creates a dewy and clear complexion as the seed ingredients harvested from the eco-friendly green tea gardens in Jeju island intensively hold onto skin moisture and the natural hydrating betaine ingredients promote moisture synthesis within skin layers.

Or so what it said on the packaging. The staff recommended me this product as soon as she looked into my face. I think it's a good think to show your flaws to the beauty staff so they'll know your problem right away. It's kinda sad, really. I guess makeup is not enough to hide your flaws.

My problem that time were red blemishes, acne scaring and oily face. Also even though I'm on the oily side, in the winter I could see some dry patches around my nose and stuff. Sad really. And the time I started to wear this product (last winter) I am not into skin care, at all. I just moisturize and that's it! 

But then, I tried (really hard) to put on this serum religiously, day and night. And soon I began to use this regularly my skin began to improve, means less visible red blemishes, less acne, and now, I am simply can not not wearing this. 

And, the fresh-feeling you got afterwards applying this product is also one of the reason I can not miss wearing this. 

Serum has the most concentration of good things (yep, anything, good thing, good stuff for your skin) so you have to wear your serum first after you cleanse your face so that your face could completely absorbs all the good things. 

According to the packaging, again, your skin care routine should go in this step :

Serum - Skin (Toner) - Lotion (Emulsion and stuff like that) - (Essence) - Eye Cream - Cream - Oil

Or I have to summarize it, from the less moisturizing, to the most moisturizing.

This is not my snot, this is the product swatch

You can see the product is somewhat liquidy, like most of the serum in the world. I usually use around 1.5 - 2 pumps, scrub it between my hand and massage them into my face. First I'll apply the product where the problems are the worst (like the sides of my nose, and my cheek) and then spread them all over my face.

Green tea is one of the 3 things I wouldn't put in my mouth, or simply I HATE GREENTEA. Even at the smell of it, even its color (yuck). BUT, on the contrary this one does not smells like one! It almost smells like some men cologne, I can't describe it well :s But anyway this doesn't smell like one!! 

I've used the original version (80ml) and it lasts me a good 7 months, and this limited edition are 160ml, twice as big, so I'm good for a year. If you already using the original one, I suggest you to hurry up and get the limited edition one, as it's twice as big, but the price is not! (Original KRW 22.000, limited edition KRW 28.000 + super cute packaging)

Because Innisfree is a very eco-friendly brand, you'll get a handkerchief on every limited edition product purchases (Green Tea Seed serum & Green Tea Seed Cream) to support their less tissue, bring a handkerchief program. I think this is a great move for green, eco-friendly living (Even though it's very cheaply made, but it's cute so it's ok)
