The famous Korean Brand, Innisfree is finally here invading our beloved Indonesian beauty products market and i can not be more thrilled to be experiencing them before-hand! But since i am a good person at heart, i would be delightful to give you all some kind of a mini review, a tour to some of their best-selling products, before you can get your hands on them soonest.
1. Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum - IDR 340.000
I am starting it off with this famous product you might have heard of before, the Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum. This serum is one of their number one best-selling product worldwide. So, what does this product do?
This product is esentially 100% organic, nature-based and created from the island full of goodness, Jeju Island. The carefully selected green tea is harvested at their best moment, then steamed for 30 seconds an hour after harvested to help them retain their natural nutrients. After that, they are then extracted for the essence with purified water for the sake of easy absorption on the skin, then finally packaged for your better skin.
The product comes with a 6-free pledge: no parabens, pigments, mineral oil, ethanol, benzophenone, and animal ingredients, which makes this product practically very safe and natural to use. This product is mostly suitable for any skin types, but works perfectly as a booster for dry and combination dry skin type in the morning for extra moisture.
The bottle package is a travel-friendly bottle completed with a plastic-fitted cap to prevent leaks, The texture of the product itself is fairly liquid, lightweight on the skin, transparent, and quickly absorbing. It creates dewy complexion without leaving any greasy or sticky feeling. The scent resembles some citrus fragrance. For the usage, please use this product first thing on your skin care steps, means after washing your face, and before toner. It is supposed to moisturize and boosts the effectiveness of the rest of the other products applied to your skin. I use only one pump for my whole face because a little really goes a long way with this.
It is fairly priced at around IDR 340.000 per 80ml bottle. So far, i believe the product lives up to its claims. The only thing i kind of get disappointed about it, is the fact that i always like things to be un-scented, but i guess it might be just me. The other thing to keep in mind is that this product contains alcohol, so for those of you who are allergic to alcohol, please do check again if this product is suitable for you.
2. Innisfree Anti Aging Mask Smile Line - IDR 45.000
This mask contains coenzyme Q10, that is known for its best result in creating resilient skin. It is used to nourish and moisturize your smile line, remembering that women smile for more than 10,000 times a day, it is then essential to take care of your smile line so no fine line or wrinkles can show.
This mask solves inelasticity and dryness around your smile line due to aging and stress. Put on this mask for around 30 minutes to absorb all the liquid nutrients.
3. Innisfree Anti Aging Mask Neck and Collarbone - IDR 45000
Priced at IDR 45000, this mask also contains coenzyme Q10, like the smile line mask. It is made of 100% delicate cotton, making the mask really soft and easy to stick to faces. The coenzyme Q10 it offers is used to boost flexibility to the skin of the neck and collarbone area.
After shower, remove excess water from the neck and collarbone area, then stick the mask and leave for 10 - 20 minutes as pleased.
4. Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask Bamboo - IDR 19000
This mask has many variants of the essence used, this one contains bamboo, something that is well known to emphasize moisturization. The mask also contains the famous Jeju green complex, constituting green tea, tangerine, cactus, camelia leaves, orchid, and grapefruit.
The mask itself is a triple layered sheet. Please do avoid eye and lip area, and leave on for 10 - 20 minutes as pleased.
5. Innisfree It's Real Squeeze Mask Bija - IDR 19000
Bija, it is a type of nutmeg, as i googled, that is native to Japan and South Korea only. It is made of Bija seeds that are pretty rare and can only be processed after they survived twenty years in the wild.
This mask has a good result on clearing the skin, meaning minimizing the redness and small marks. To me, it works for about 40 - 50% minimized redness and small marks. Leave on for 25 minutes for best results, according to my experience.
6. Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask Hyaluronic Acid - IDR 33000
The term Hyaluronic Acid is not new to all of us, correct? We at least have heard it once or twice, across many discussion of beauty products. So this Hyaluronic Acid, HA, is known as a deep moisturizer, fighting dryness. The end result of the mask wearing is dewy skin, and it is very cooling.
The mask is transparent and thin, well-drenched in serum. It is to be worn after toner, to be left on for around 10 - 20 minutes. To be honest, this mask does the claims, but it is nothing real mind-blowing.
7. Innisfree Skin Clinic Mask Collagen - IDR 33000
This one contains collagen, another very familiar thing. Collagen is a protein found in our body, connecting tissues. It helps skin to be smoother and elastic. Collagen itself decreases as we get older, resulting in creation of fine line and wrinkles. The mask makes skin more firm, plumper, healthier and more elastic. However, after 30 minutes leave on, results are pretty temporary according to me.
Repetitive uses are recommended for a more permanent result. This might cause breakouts for skins not used to collagen products, but after a couple of uses it should be fine.
So that is the end of the review. I hope it cures your curiosity of this brand that is often related to Korean stars' great skin, and yes, as a good news i promised you about, Innisfree is going to open its first store in Indonesia, in Central Park Jakarta, 24 March 2017, and following straight, its second store, two weeks later in Senayan City Jakarta, so if you are around and you want to join on the fun, please do come!
