[Review] Innisfree - The Green Tea Seed Serum

Hello everyone! :)

As I'm on the journey of searching for the right serum for my skin, I come across this highly-rated  and also Innisfree's best selling Green Tea Seed Serum.

Read on to find how this Green Tea Seed Serum works on my skin. :)

I bet most of you who are into K-beauty would be familiar with this serum. No stranger, this serum has been one of the top selling products at Innisfree's stores ever since it is launched.

This serum I'm having right now is from their old packaging. The newer version has darker green bottle packaging, and that's how I tell the difference from one to another.

Before I decided on purchasing the full size product, I emptied two of their travelling size testers and I found my skin wants for more.

The serum comes in a pump-head plastic bottle packaging (as above). I would say, the size and all are pretty travel-friendly - light and petite size. It even comes with a cap lock to prevent spill (as below).

"Enriched with fresh green tea seeds and squeezed green tea from Jeju Island to deliver abundant moisture and nourishment deep into your skin." -Innisfree.

This concentrated green tea seed serum contains green tea extract and green tea oil that are rich in amino acids and minerals to ensure the skin stays hydrated while preventing moisture loss.

The plastic bottle itself is opaque which you can still able to tell how much product left from the silhouette.

The serum itself has its very own relaxing green tea scent. The scent kinda reminds and brings you back to their physical stores.

Its viscosity is very much like snail mucus, only that it quickly breakdowns into light watery texture when you spread it out on the skin.

Usually I will take 3 to 5 small pumps and apply it all over my face in my morning skincare routine.

I don't find the serum itself has the cooling effect. However, as the serum is spread thinly on the skin and gets evaporated, there is this light cooling sensation to it. For better absorption and higher moisturization, I would recommend to lightly pat the serum into the skin, rather than leave it on to dry.

Have you ever come across when product tester is better than full-size product?

I remember I enjoyed their testers because I noticed my skin became soft and supple in the morning after applying it. However, I didn't feel the same after purchasing the full-size product. It felt... different, and I can't explain why. :/

To note, my skin condition is undergoing a rough transition period where I really don't know how to handle and sooth it down. Not because of this product, in fact, I don't know how it all started. Perhaps stress? I don't know. So I won't blame it on the serum. It may works for me previously, but not for now.

In terms of moisturizing level, it is on the average level for my normal to oily, sensitive skin. I'm not mad at it, because I can always layer it on the skin if I find one layer insufficient. But often, I'm in a rush to get ready for work in the morning, so I like to keep things simple.

This product is available on Althea Korea for RM89.
