Innisfree Green Tea Fresh Cream Review

Hi, belles!

Finally, I found a new best friend for my skin.

Innisfree Green Tea Fresh Cream, this has been working so great on my oily skin I LOVE IT SO MUCH. It absorbs fast, leaves no residue, and leaves the skin feeling good and fresh. I am always insecure whenever I have to buy a moisturizer because it's so hard to find a moisturizer that doesn't break me out or feel greasy. With fingers crossed, I just wish I didn't make a wrong purchase. Well, I apparently didn't. :"

It's the 2014 upgraded version and I guess they've done a good job upgrading it. Innisfree always emphasizes the use of Jeju's natural products as their main ingredients and I think it has been becoming Innisfree's selling point. Anyway, back to the moisturizer, it's a lightweight clear gel texture that I really really like. It soothes the skin and I just like how fast it absorbs on my skin.

Ingredients list (check how safe they are here on cosdna):
camelia sinensis leaf extract, propanediol, glycerin, citrus unshiu peel extract, opuntia coccinellifera fruit extract, orchid extract, camellia japonica leaf extract, eugenia caryophyllus (clove) flower extract, citrus aurantium dulcis (orange) fruit extract, citrus paradisi (grapefruit) fruit extract, citrus aurantium bergamia (bergamot) fruit extract, citrus tangerina (tangerine) extract, tromethamine, peg-60 hydrogenated castor oil, acrylate/c10-30 alkyl acrylate crosspolymer, butylene glycol, carbomer, ethylhexylglycerin, water, disodium edta, 1,2-hexanediol, fragrance.

As expected from Amore Pacific Group products, it's free of paraben, synthetic pigments, mineral oil, animal testing, and imidazolidinyl urea (fyi, imidazolidinyl urea is categorized as preservative that is commonly used together with paraben. Sources and further references, you can read this and this).
p.s. another info, do read my list of cruelty-free Korean cosmetic brands.

I use it as a night-time moisturizer. After reading the ingredients list and found out that they didn't really contain any high irritant or acne triggering ingredient, I knew then why it didn't break me out.
To be honest, if we're talking about ingredients contained in skincare, I still can't find out yet what it is exactly the ingredient that my skin hates and cannot tolerate. I guess I still have a long way to go to save this beloved skin of mine. But for the time being, my skin is loving this Green Tea Fresh Cream so much and I will most likely repurchase it soon.

If I should pick one thing that I dislike, it's the scent. The scent is a bit too much. I've read other reviews and some bloggers also agreed. If only the scent is more subtle (or even make it scent-less), and it'll be perfect!

I highly recommend it, especially for those of you with oily skin!

Now I want to try the green tea sleeping pack


  1. beli dimana sis? aku ikut PO paling bulan februari nyampenya, mudah2an cocok

    1. hm lupa hehe tapi kalo ngga salah 175k

  3. hai sis! mau nanya nih, korea skincare produk yg bagus buat pagi2 sm malem apa yaa? aku gabisa ngebedainnya sis :(
    tipe mukaku oily

    1. halo! jujur aku sendiri belum banyak coba macem macem skincare karena emang jarang gonta-ganti takut aja kalo breakout. tapi ini ada tulisan lain yg cukup informatif

      generally speaking, pelembab buat pagi/siang itu lebih ringan dan lebih fokus ke perlindungan kulit terhadap sinar UV, radikal bebas, etc (tapi tetep lebih baik pakai sunscreen lagi sih). kalo pelembab malam itu lebih berat dan kandungan skincare benefitsnya biasanya lebih banyak karena waktu tidur itu kan waktu regenerasi kulit :)

    Hi, I'm from Brazil and I was looking for a gel or a cream for oily skin. I just wanna buy this one now.
    I tried a lot of brands (clinique, neutrogena, la roche posay) that I can find easily in Brazil, but nothing is that good for my oily skin.
    Thank you, so much.
