Continuing to my obsession with Korean Skincare stuff, today I am going to share my experience with a Face cream from Innisfree Green Tea range, Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Cream.I never get bored of trying out new moisturizers. So, here’s another review of new one. I have heard so many good things about the green tea line from Innisfree so I decided to give this a go. Innisfree green tea range is my favorite daytime skincare, especially at work. Working in an office environment, the air conditioner can be drying for your skin. The Green Tea Balancing range is made for combination skin and is suitable for hot and humid climates. I just Love the Korean natural brand Innisfree, it is my current favorite brand!

My Experience With Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Cream

This is now my daytime daily basis moisturizer. I was able to quit using acne moisturizers with the help of this does really well on my skin. For the most part it keeps my bad acne to a minimum and my skin seems stable and comfortable quite for a while now. I was expecting it to be a little more hydrating than the balancing lotion since this one’s supposed to be a cream but, the texture of it is same. Quite watery but not runny. It’s not enough for the winter weather but works best in the summers. The smell would probably be a little strong for those with fragrance issues, but its fine for me.  It has a very light and fluffy texture, and it is not greasy at all. A little can cover almost all of my face. It absorbs pretty fast and has a light, floral smell. It hasn’t broken me out which is the best thing about it and it really does calm my skin after a long hot day. This might be the most effective moisturizer I’ve used in my view of my skin.  My skin just stayed hydrated and less oily. This is the only cream that works for me. It also lasts for a really good time; I would definitely recommend this product to anyone suffering from oily skin and dehydration. This product is bliss. I have been using this cream for a while now and feel that this product is comparable and fit to the expensive skincare products in terms of quality, efficacy and overall effectiveness. It provides adequate moisture to the skin, leaving it soft with a healthy glow. I can’t explain in words more about how much it has improved my skins overall.  You can feel the same and immediate difference after its first use. It made my skin very soft, moisturized, supple and velvety. Also, it doesn’t make your skin greasy. It just feels like your skin is much softer and nicer than before!

  • Sinks in fast.
  • Keeps oily skin hydrated all day long.
  • Balances oil production on skin.

  • Quite Pricey.

Would I Repurchase Or Recommend Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Cream?

I would rate it 5/5 after ignoring the issue about its bit strong smell. Definitely! I Love this product that I tried, it just makes my skin moist and balanced. The consistency of this product is pretty concentrated so not much product is needed. It just does what it says, which is keeping my skin moist and hydrated all day long!  Obviously repurchasing it when runs out of this container. It is especially for normal to combination skin so I wouldn’t recommend it to people with dry skin and highly recommend for oily & combination skin.

Even I liked this cream but the thing is that when you’re in a hot or just moderately hot environment…like at room temperature this cream makes you sweat a lot…like no joke.
As soon as I apply the cream, sweat beads instantly starts popping up and my whole skin becomes wet. I really don’t know why this happens, at first I thought it’s just me (I have combination skin) but it also happens with my Mom who has a bit of oily skin.
Only con is this.
