[Review] Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum

Hello dolls!
Today I am going to share my thoughts on Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum.
I have read many people raving about this products.
I have oily and acne prone skin btw. And yeah I read that this product is great for those duo problem (oily skin and acne prone).
I just tried this products about a month ago.
Let's take a look at the packaging.

Brand Innisfree/ 이니스프리
Products name Green Tea Seed Serum/ 더 그린티 씨드 세럼
Contain 80 ml
Price KRW 22,000

This nourishing moisture serum is formulated with freshly squeezed Jeju green tea and green tea seeds to create a dewy and clear skin from deep within.

It comes in a bottle and a pump. The box is from recycled paper. There is also a fitted plastic cap which makes it easy to close and travel with.

The texture of this serum is liquidy and feels lightweight. Absorbs quickly into my skin. There is no sticky feeling afterwards.

One and a half pump is enough for my entire face. Just apply it on a cleansed face and I like to dap it onto my skin with my fingertips to let it absorb better.
Make sure to use the serum in this order: Serum - Lotion - Essence - Eye Cream - Cream (Deep Cream) - Face Oil

Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Alcohol, Propanediol, Diethyoxyethyl Succinate, Dipropylene, Glycol, Glycerin, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Orchid Extract, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis Seed Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Extract, DL-Panthenol, Betaine, Trehalose, Niacinamide, PEG/PGG-17/6 Copolymer, BIS-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, C12-16 Alcohols, Potassium Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Phenyl Trimethicone, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Cellulose Gum, Palmitic Acid, Hydogenated Lecithin, Octyldodeceth-16, Dextrin, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance.

What I like:
  • free from parabens, pigments, mineral oil, ethanol, benzophenone and animal ingredients
  • absorbs quickly
  • didn't leave a sticky feeling afterwards
  • feels lightweight
  • refreshing scent
  • has a cooling effect
  • contains 100% organic green tea
  • only need a little product for your entire face
  • travel friendly
What I don't like:
  • Does nothing on my skin (doesn't improve my skin condition) :(
  • Break me out :(
I already stopped using this product after a month testing it out. Even though I really love the smell and how it applies on my skin, too bad it breaks me out and doesn't improve my skin condition. Maybe this product isn't for my skin. I have tried using another serum and it works great for me. I will do review later.

Hope my review helps you.
See you on my next post


Kali ini aku mau review produk dari Innisfree.
Yaitu, Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum.

Yang aku suka dari produk ini:
  • bebas dari parabens, pigments, mineral oil, ethanol, benzophenone dan animal ingredients
  • cepat menyerap ke kulit
  • ga bikin lengket
  • ringan di kulit
  • baunya enak, seger2 gitu
  • ada cooling effectnya
  • mengandung 100% organic green tea
  • bisa dibawa kemana2 (untuk traveling)
  • cuma butuh sedikit untuk 1 muka
  • Ga ngaruh apa2 di kulitku
  • Bikin jerawatan :(
Setelah make kurang lebih 1 bulan, aku udah berhenti make produk ini. Soalnya dia ga ngaruh apa2 di kulitku, malah bikin kulitku jerawatan. Huhu. Padahal aku suka banget produk ini, dia ga lengket dan bener2 ringan di kulit. Padahal aku banyak banget baca kalau orang2 cocok pake produk ini. Dan banyak juga yang kulitnya kondisinya kayak aku berminyak dan berjerawat make ini trus cocok dan jadi ga jerawatan lagi. Yah namanya skincare ya, cocok2an. Dan ternyata produk ini ga cocok di aku >.<
Semoga review ku membantu ya.

    1. iya. aku udah baca review nya ce rini, makannya beli ini. tapi ternyata ga cocok.
      makasih ce :)

  5. oh man. i was hoping that it would work. its too bad it broke you out and did nothing for your skin! >_< have you tried other innisfree products?


  6. Breakouts are the worst!! Thnx for sharing. gig love


  7. Wow! This serum looked great! So sad it gives u a break out :( Im now using a Dior one that I loveeee!


  8. Looks like a great product..... but too bad it didnt improve your skin condition........ thanks for being honest :) GigLove

  9. I should try this one, since I jave oily skin. Too bad it donlt give any effect for you :(


  10. I love Innisfree products but too bad this broke you out. I hope you find something that works for your skin.

  11. I don't like cooling effect on my skin, especially on my face, so this product might be not for me.
    Thank you for sharing your opinion.

  12. I do too have acne prone and oily skin. So I guess this is not really a product for me to try. =/

  13. I usually really enjoy green tea products, it's too bad this one didn't work out. Thank you for sharing! <3 GIGLove

  14. Kayaknya bagus. Aku tuh suka banget sama green tea soalnya. Apa2 aku serba green tea. Hahaha. Percaya ga sampe obat nyamuk semprot pun cari yg green tea.


  15. this sounds like a great product, i have a similar serum that i use for morning and night and it really helps my skin :D giglove

  16. Too bad it's not working for you. Great review btw! :D

  17. aw shame that it didn't do much to the skin. wouldnt mind trying others within the range

  18. It's such a shame when products don't leave up to its claims. It's great that they've not included any nasty chemicals here but there must be an ingredient that simply doesn't go well with your skin hence the breakout. hope you find a similar product that works well on you.


  19. I'm sorry to hear that it doesn't work for you.

  20. Too bad it does nothing on your skin. =( Else I am sure you will like it much. giglove

  21. hmm pity this didn't work out for you, thanks for your honest detailed review giglove

  22. I also think serums are the easiest to wear. They're very light on the skin and is great under makeup

  23. Halooo ... review ini super membantu!
    saya beli produk Innisfree Green tea series .. dan hasilnya ...

    sediiih banget! muka malah timbu banyak jerawat,
    sekarang bingung mau beralih ke serum apa? ada rekomendasi???

    1. Halo! Aku udah 1 tahun ini pake secret key yang seri snail + egf nya. Aku pake facial foam, toner, sama essence nya. Essence nya udah pernah aku review di sini.
