I like giving my skin a good brush with green tea enriched products as much as I like sipping green tea in the morning. I have used The Body Shop green tea range that gave pretty satisfactory results. So when Innisfree’s green tea products hit Indian market I was excited to give them a try too. I have been using their green tea seed serum (already reviewed and published) for last couple of months, and it is doing wonder on my skin. Going by the serum’s performance, I had high expectations from Innisfree green tea pure cleansing foam as well. Did it fare well on those expectations? Read more to find that out.
My Skin Type: Combination to Oily
My Take on ‘Innisfree Green Tea Pure Cleansing Foam’
It comes in a tube packaging with a screw cap. The tube material is soft so it is easily squeezable, and you can effortlessly get even the last ounce of product out. I like such packaging as it is easy to use, easy to carry and hygienic. The only thing you need to take care of is extract exactly the required quantity – less will work ok but if you squeeze out more product either you will have to use it all up or throw away the excess quantity.
The texture is smooth but not creamy. There are no miniscule particles but still I feel some coarseness when I rub it between my palms. It has mild yet noticeable fragrance that does not bother my nostrils. But if you have sensitive nose you might find the fragrance strong.
It has medium consistency so you can easily force out the product without worrying about spilling. To create lather, you need to mix it with some water. On bare face it will give you abundant lather but if you are applying it after using an oil-balancing makeup remover you may have to wash your face twice to get that clean and fresh feeling. Unlike some face washes that remove makeup residuals, Innisfree green tea cleansing foam does not do much of a job on that front. So you better remove all the makeup before using this cleanser.
You need to be slightly careful while you work with this cleansing foam. Keep it away from the eyes as otherwise it stings the eyes and makes them watery. This has happened with me couple of times when I have tried to get rid of the leftover makeup from my eyelids.
Post wash, it does not make the skin dry. It keeps the moisture level balanced so would be a good option for all skin types especially dry skin. Other than that I do not find it doing wonders for my skin. It does not do much in improving the overall well-being of my skin or controlling the oil that accumulates like I have applied a rich moisture cream on my face. Being enriched with green tea extracts, it is expected to work as an antioxidant but I do not find it working on pimples. They keep coming up now and then.
What I like about ‘Innisfree Green Tea Pure Cleansing Foam’
– Small quantity is required for one time usage.
– It creates abundant lather.
– It does not make the skin dry or stretchy.
– Enriched with the goodness of green tea.
– It comes in a nice hygienic packaging and the tube is easy to squeeze.
What I do not like about ‘Innisfree Green Tea Pure Cleansing Foam’
– My skin does not feel thoroughly cleansed post usage.
– It barely removes leftover makeup.
– If it comes close to the waterline it stings the eyes and makes them watery.
Price of ‘Innisfree Green Tea Pure Cleansing Foam’: INR 600 for 150 ml
BABE Rating: 3/5
Final Word: Innisfree green tea pure cleansing foam is a basic cleanser that does not irritate the skin. It keeps the moisture level balanced so would be a good option for dry skin people. Apart from that, I do not notice any remarkable improvement in my skin tone and its overall health. The good thing is Innisfree happily provides you samples so that you get to see how the products perform on your skin before buying the full sizes. So if you want to see how this would work on you, try the sample first.
