As the name would have you believe, the anh hùng ingredient of this serum is green tea, but interestingly, it’s a little different from the stuff we drink. Grown organically on Jeju Islvà off the coast of Korea, the special plant breed is grown not for taste, but because of its skincare benefits.

Essentially, the leaves are pulled from the plant stem, steamed for 30 seconds, then pressed. The extract is then stabilized and purified so it’s as potent as possible. Full of amino acids và antioxidants, this blend is what goes into lớn the serum, along with green tea seed oil, resulting in a formulation that’s soothing and hydrating.

There’s also glycerin & panthenol (vitamin B5) lớn further hydrate và restore barrier function, making for a gentle, well-rounded serum that’s great for most skin types.

How khổng lồ Apply: Morning and night

The great thing about the Inniskhông tính tiền Green Tea Seed Serum is that you can use it both morning & night, as it won’t interfere with any other actives lượt thích retinol or exfoliating acids. I’ve sầu been testing it on damp skin straight after cleansing, underneath my moisturizer, and can confirm it sinks in beautifully and leaves the skin super plump.

The Results: Fresh hydration

Right when I applied Innisfree"s Green Tea Seed Serum, my skin looked really fresh & bouncy (mission accomplished). It sinks in quickly, but certainly diminishes that crepe-y, flat texture that comes with dehydration. After a few weeks of consistent use, I vì think my face felt slightly softer và calmer. I had actually overdone it on exfoliation before testing, và feel as if the serum brought my barrier bachồng from the brink.

It’s probably worth mentioning that the sản phẩm contains fragrance, which I don’t think is ikhuyễn mãi giảm giá (I prefer fragrance-free), but it didn’t seem to cause me any major issues.

The Value: A good khuyễn mãi giảm giá

At $27 for 2.7 oz., I think Innisfree"s Green Tea Seed Serum is a pretty sweet khuyến mãi. The sản phẩm is pretty simple, but it delivers on the promise of comforting hydration và is a treat khổng lồ apply. Because of the silky, lightweight gel-serum texture, a little goes a long way, as well.
