I have recently developed a curiosity for Innisfree products and after trying out a few samples from the brand, I wanted to invest in a full-sized product. Since it was my first significant investment in their range, I chose something that seemed to be better value for money than many of their insanely priced products, and the ingredient list seemed perfect for my skin. The product I picked up was the Innisfree Green Tea Seed Essence in Lotion. After using it for a few weeks, here is what I think about the product.
The Innisfree Green Tea Seed Essence in Lotion is packed with the goodness of anti-oxidants and amino acids along with the essence of Jeju Green Tea. The formula is in the form of a watery lotion that spreads really easily on the skin. It takes a few minutes to sink into the skin and looks a little shiny until then. Once fully absorbed, it leaves the skin looking smooth, hydrated and plump. It is basically like a refreshing drink for the skin that provides a boost of hydration without being greasy. Green tea based products really suit my acne-prone combination skin and this lotion has helped calm down a few breakouts that appeared on my skin but disappeared without flaring up to their full extent.
I basically use this lotion as a serum, sometimes on its own after toning, and sometimes in conjunction with a night/day cream. If you are someone with greasy skin, this product would be the perfect moisturiser for you on its own, and if you have extremely dry skin then you may want to top it up with a cream.
Overall, this lotion is excellent for all skin types, even sensitive skin. It is light-weight yet hydrating and extremely gentle. As a bonus, it helps curb acne too and is paraben free. Also, the price point of INR 1550 for a huge 100ml bottle with a pump is actually very budget-friendly considering you need just a few drops of the lotion every day. If you are someone who has been eyeing Innisfree products since a long time but are worried about the price tags then this lotion will be a great buy for you. Definitely Lipstick-for-Lunch approved!
