Today I'm going to review something that I actually had for some time now, it's Innisfree's The Green Tea Seed Deep Cream.
Retail for KRW 22.000, it's a new addition to the "Green Tea SEED" line (not to be mistake with Green Tea "PURE" line - which I've mistaken before with my cleansing water, read here!).
The Green Tea Seed line is one of Innisfree's most famous line and I personally have been using their serum for sometime now. But I don't actually own anymore products from that line, until I purchase this!
As the weather cooling up, the daily moisturizer I used everyday is not enough to protect my skin against Busan's super strong drying winds. And the moisturizer I have is too sticky and too creamy to use during the day, plus if double it up with makeup, it will literally suffocate my face (It's NP's steam cream, Read review HERE).
I swatched these on the store, and I was like, finally.....FINALLY! A super moisturizing, thick and heavy cream but didn't felt oily and sticky at all!! I was super excited but a still contemplating on purchasing or not, but in the end I got back there and bought the cream!
In the box it stated :
"This powerful (wow) moisture cream contains Jeju green tea seeds to thoroughly
replenish moisture and nutrients from deep within your skin.
Formulated to create a powerful protective barrier to prevent moisture loss
from your rough skin caused by cold and dry weather conditions
while leaving your skin feeling sleek and dewy"
And as Innisfree is famous for its natural ingredients, I'll just believe that it wont contain stuff that are bad for your skin and health (5-free-system)
Unlike the serum that has a strong scent (that I like, definitely not a green tea scent, floral-and-sweet-with-a-super-little-sprinkle-of-green-tea kinda of scent) this cream almost didn't have any scent at all. It does have a very faint scent similar to the Green Tea Seed Serum but it's not recognizable.
As I said before, this deep cream is very thick. I do need to use this generously because it's kinda hard to spread as it's so thick and also very easy to absorb by the skin! That's the super good thing about this product, even though it's heavy and thick, it gets absorbed to the skin almost instantly and didn't make my whole face felt thick or felt like using a lot of product.
Some of you might be concerned for the hygiene as you have to scoop out the product with your fingers. Feel free to scoop them out with a cotton swap as it didn't come with a scooper / spatula or that kinda stuff.
Overall, this is 5 out of 5 for me! It's puuuurfect for this autumn / winter season to prevent dryness + I'm pretty sure my blemishes decreased after daily usage. It does cost me a fortune :( and I have to scoop out more product than i would usually with my other creams. But, since I only wear it in the day, (still wearing the NP's steam cream in the night!) i think it could last me for months or so! :)
Thankyou so much for reading! :D
P.S the reason I didn't write the review asap is because I don't want my blog to be filled only with Innisfree products :( although I really love them :( haha
