Innisfree Green Tea Seed Cream :The first thing I would like to talk about when reviewing Innisfree’s green tea seed cream is that this is my first product I have ever tried from this particular brand. In fact, I had never even heard of it before (at the time of purchase of this product). I purchased this on a whim without knowing what to expect from this product. I have always been using moisturizers from Western brands such as Neutrogena etc etc. This is the first time I purchased this product from an Asian market. I have extremely oily, blemish-prone and sensitive skin. I live in extremely humid conditions on an average day. Bought this by mistake when I was rushing to get the serum instead. However, I did not regret using it. I use this as a night moisturizer, and wake up feeling really moisturized, so much so, my skin was glowing in the morning. The consistency is quite thick, so I do not use too much of it, more like a few dots around my face. Once applied, it feels a bit oily and waxy, but in a pleasant way. I kept using this despite having oily skin myself.
I have already reviewed their BALANCING CREAM. You can find the review of Green Tea Serum HERE.

My Experience with Innisfree Green Tea Seed Cream
I have an oily & acne prone skin with some acne scars. I have been wanting to slowly switch my skincare to Korean products and Innisfree seemed very natural and plus everything looked cute. My skin is very sensitive and I was worried to try this because the consistency of the cream is very thick and also the scent of the cream is bit strong for me but this did not break me out all and moisturized my skin very well. It wears well under sunscreen and makeup. It cools and calm down my skin and my skin feels incredibly soft and supple. I always look for products that don’t burn my skin and provides soothing sensation to my skin. The Innisfree green tea seed cream is very soothing and does not irritate my oily skin at the same time it is gentle on the skin, no burning sensation, no redness at all plus it deeply hydrates and smells wonderful. Although the texture of the cream is quite thick and greasy it is better to use it at night. Since using this cream, I have noticed fine lines on my eyes have reduced. The green tea seed line has more nutrition than the usual moisture line. This one looks thick but it spreads easily and feels awesome on my skin. It makes my skin moist, plump but not sticky at the same time. I love to use it even on summer in a very hot day; it doesn’t melt or makes my skin looks oily. It’s not as light as the gel cream but not as melting as the moisture cream.
- This moisture cream with Jeju eco-friendly green tea seed ingredient is formulated to provide excellent moisturizing + anti-oxidant effects to your skin.
- Moist but not sticky
- Refreshing scent.
- Absorbs Quickly.
- It’s really very expensive.
- Not suitable to use during daytime better to use it at night time. As, bergamot fruit extract makes skin sensitive to light.
- It can irritate very sensitive skin because of the presence of lots of citrus extracts in it.
- Very thick consistency for oily skin.
Would I repurchase ?
I would rate it 4/5. I have to be more careful and thoughtful about when and with what other products I apply with since it is a thick cream and makes me oilier during the day. It’s not an everyday product in my opinion, but for when I need a good boost of hydration on drier days. I recommend it to people with dry skin instead of oily skin.
