[Bellflower] Hibiscus Anti-Aging Serum Review

IMG_5188

 

I haven’t posted a review of a serum for…. God only knows how long. Ages, it seems. So I’m coming to you with the review of this Bellflower Hibiscus Anti-Aging Serum. I received this product from Bellflower’s founder for review purposes but even though I got it from the brand itself, all opinions in this review are mine and only mine. So, with that being said, let’s jump to the review!

 

About the product

IMG_5195

 

Bellflower is a rather unknown brand as it’s fairly new on the market. According to their website, they’re a brand that provides products which are intensive solutions to skin problems with an emphasis on ”naturalistic ingredients of EWG safety grade not including artificial scent and colors” and the ”necessary quantity of ingredients” rather than their number. And all that with a packaging that is simple and eye-pleasing.

When it comes to the product itself- the Hibiscus Anti-Aging Serum– it is a serum that aims to contribute to making skin healthy, elastic, moisturized and smooth. The health and elasticity of the skin are meant to be aided by Adenosine, Hibiscus Flower Extract, 7 type complex of Peptides and Collagen, while the moisturizing and smoothness effect is meant to be achieved with the help of Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice and Acorus Calamus Root Extract. That’s the only information on the serum’s packaging. On the official website of Bellflower, there’s a bit more information on the product (you can also buy it from there, just by the way) so if you’re interested, you can have a look. However, I’ll use some of the information from their website below to address the ingredients and texture so you won’t miss much.

So! Let’s proceed to the ingredients, my favourite part of reviewing skincare products.

 

 

Ingredients and Texture

IMG_5196

Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Glycereth-26, Dipropylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Hibiscus Sabdariffa Flower Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Sorbitan Sesquioleate, Glycosyl Trehalose, Hydrogenated Starch Hydrolysate, Arginine, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Carbomer, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Gardenia Florida Fruit Extract, Xanthan Gum, Adenosine, Disodium EDTA, Sodium Hyaluronate, Tremella Fuciformis (Mushroom) Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Acorus Calamus Root Extract, Perilla Ocymoides Leaf Extract, PPG-26-Buteth-26, Caprylyl Glycol, Wheat Amino Acids, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil, Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil, Pelargonium Graveolens Flower Oil, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Oil, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, Salvia Sclarea (Clary) Oil, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Oil, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Copper Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Tripeptide-1, Natto Gum, Hexapeptide-9, Nonapeptide-1

 

So. The good and the bad. Let’s go.

 

The good:

  • the ingredients in bold are the ones mentioned in the product description above (the ”staple” ingredients) and all of them are in the product, which is a big plus (I’ve seen products which claimed to have/not have certain ingredients and the ingredients list was showing something different)
  • contains Adenosine (supposedly there’s 0.04% of it in the product) which has proven anti-wrinkle benefits (makes the skin look younger and smoother) and Hibiscus Flower Extract (there’s meant to be 15,000 ppm of it in the product, according to the serum’s packaging and the Bellflower’s website) which contains AHAs (gently exfoliating acids), and a powerful antioxidant in the form of vitamin C, helping the skin look fresher, healthies and more evenly in tone. Plus, there’s also Niacinamide (2% in the product) which helps to brighten the skin.
  • contains 4 types of peptides (especially copper peptides) that encourage collagen production helping the skin stay elastic (as we age the amount of collagen in the skin diminishes)
  • contains Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice that has soothing and antioxidant properties, as well as Acorus Calamus Root Extract that’s meant to smooth and help to moisturize the skin
  • there are also a variety of other skin-beneficial plant extracts (e.g. Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract) and oils, such as Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil which has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties
  • there’s no artificial colouring or artificial fragrance
  • almost all ingredients are green-rated on CosDna meaning they’re safe to use on the skin

 

The bad:

  • it contains essential oils and while some of them are beneficial to the skin, others such as Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil can make the skin oversensitized; CosDna yellow-rates Citrus Limon (Lemon) Peel Oil and Cymbopogon Schoenanthus Oil in terms of safety, so although they have the potential to provide the skin with benefits, at the same time they may result in negative effects on the skin
  • there are two ingredients which have a rating of 1 (the lowest but of some significance nevertheless): Butylene Glycol for acne and Carbomer as a skin irritant
  • there’s Hydrolyzed Collagen in the serum which, although it doesn’t have any negative impact on the skin, it doesn’t bring in much either- collagen particles are too big to penetrate the skin to reach the underlying structures and stimulate the new collagen production

 

 

 

 

When it comes to texture, it’s very runny (almost water-like), pink-ish (sometimes it looks more reddish to me) and has quite a strong citrusy smell. It seems to be due to the Lemon and Orange oils mixed with other oils (Lavender, Basil and Clary) so it certainly doesn’t come from any artificial fragrance.  The serum absorbed super fast with every application, even faster than my essence which is more watery. It also didn’t leave any sticky feeling so I could easily apply my moisturizer on top of it.

 

 

 

 

My thoughts

IMG_5186

 

I got this serum over a month ago and for a month I’ve been wondering what actually are my thoughts on it. As much as I love the ingredients list that is packed with skin-beneficial ingredients (especially peptides!), I haven’t seen any significant difference in my skin since I started using it. The only noticeable change I noticed is that my skin felt thicker. After a month there’s been no change to my wrinkles either (yes, I do have wrinkles despite my age) but maybe I’ve had too high hopes. Or maybe a month hasn’t been enough for the serum to show its full potential. I’ll keep using it and maybe when more time passes by I’ll see a difference to my wrinkles and will update this review.

As for now, though, I can voice my full thoughts on other features of the product. I love how fast the serum absorbed every time and didn’t leave my skin tacky. It’s quite runny and spreads very well and so one or two drops were enough to cover my entire face. It comes with a small pipette which makes it very easy to get the product out and the bottle itself is made of glass which ensures the ingredients stay stable. I already mentioned that, but I’ll say it again- I’m a big fan of the ingredients in this serum (although some of them may have a negative impact on the skin, such as some essential oils). I’m a dry and sensitive skin type but I haven’t experienced any negative effects.

Overall, I do like this Hibiscus Anti-Aging Serum from Bellflower. It had positive effects on my skin: moisturized it well, made it thicker and more radiant. However, what I counted on the most when I started using it was an improvement to my wrinkles. It hasn’t done much to them but I’ll continue using the serum and I’ll continue having hopes- maybe after two months of using it I’ll finally notice some changes.

Purito Centella Green Level Buffet Serum Review

 

Purito Kbeauty Skincare Review Centella Green Level Buffet Serum

 

This product was provided to me by Purito for my honest review. Affiliate links are not used in this post.

 

I was recently approached by a Korean skincare brand called Purito to test out some of their products and, with the experience that I had with them, I was more than happy to. They showed me their English website which talked about their natural and ‘honest’ approach to skincare, focusing on safe and pure ingredients.

 

I’ll go into that a little further down but basically they asked me to choose a few products and to test them out for at least 2 weeks (and I liked that they seem genuine in wanting to demonstrate the effectiveness of their products). I’ll be starting off with their Centella Green Level Buffet Serum – which is one of their hero products. This is sort of an ‘all in one’ product, meaning that it has a buffet of essential ingredients to help target multiple skin needs at once. This seems really great as a daily serum and you can definitely boost it with a second serum depending on the seasons.

 

I think that Purito products would be well suited for people with sensitive skin or those who just prefer to use natural products in their routine. So, if that’s you (or if you’ll read what I write regardless), let’s get on with the review!

 

Purito Kbeauty Skincare Review Centella Green Level Buffet Serum

 

Brand Description

As I mentioned earlier, Purito is a brand that aims to focus on high quality, safe and natural ingredients. They use EWG green level ingredients (EWG stands for The Environmental Working Group and you can read about them here, as well as their rating system) meaning that their products are also safe for varying skin types.

 

They also have a number of brand promises, which I thought were really great and would be particularly interesting for people who are especially environmentally aware and who have sensitive skin. The following is taken from their website. There might be some awkward grammar due to the translation and language barrier, but it’s all pretty clear and pretty good:

  • Based on the data of EWG skin deep, we will continuously give a challenge although it may be difficult to produce it.
  • We will never put bad ingredients such as 20 types of ingredients that require caution and 26 types of allergic ingredients.
  • Our focus will continue to be on ingredients rather than glamorous containers.
  • We will keep the environment in mind, removing unnecessary packaging and eco-friendly material.
  • We will never conduct tests on animals.
  • We will only make mild, non-allergic products to strengthen natural resilience of skin.
  • Until the day comes when everyone uses Purito, we will keep our price at more reasonable levels to get closer to you.

 

Basically, the brand swears by using only skin safe products, focusing on ingredients rather than elaborate packaging, being environmentally friendly, not testing on animals and also being affordable to the average consumer.

 

Packaging

Although the brand states that they don’t put their focus on glamorous packaging, I personally think that it’s important to also keep it in mind – after all, great packaging always makes me more interested in continuing to use a product, and good quality is also a necessity. That being said, even though Purito’s approach is very simple and basic, the quality and aesthetic is still there – they just don’t have any brand gimmick.

 

The serum comes in a brown cardboard box – the actual design of it really suits the brand image, and this type of paper is also better for the environment (it’s uncoated, so there is no unneeded plastic in it). The bottle of this Centella Green Level Buffet Serum is made of a light but sturdy plastic, with a dark green colour. The pump is black and it’s smooth so it’s easy to control how much you want to dispense.

 

With 60mL in a bottle, I’ve been using it twice a day over two weeks now and I’m maybe 1/8 in… so I think that this would last me around 4 months if I continue in the same fashion. It’s a good amount of product, and the price is good too, selling at USD$17.30

Product claims

This product claims to have four main skin benefits:

  • Strengthening the skin barrier
  • Lightening
  • Anti-wrinkle
  • Moisturising

 

According to the website:

  • With collagen, ceramide, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide compounds in it, Buffet Serum will brighten and moisturise your skin
  • The Cica serum contains 49% of Centella Asiatica Extract and Centella Asiatica powder from Asiaticoside, Madecassic Acid and Asiatic Acid
  • With Adenosine and four peptides, the serum will help alleviate deep wrinkles

 

This product is recommended for people who want to target multiple skin problems and people with sensitive skin, especially those who are concerned with blemishes and pigmentation. The serum has a light texture and is meant to absorb quickly. However, since there is no alcohol in the formula, it does not evaporate and retains moisture.

 

According to your skin needs, they also have a recommended skincare routine on the product page. For myself, I worked this product into my normal skincare routine (so that I could observe the changes with only this additional product) but took out my whitening serum as I didn’t want it to overlap.

Personal Results

So following the recommendation from Purito, I used this serum for a total of two weeks and a kept a close eye on my observations during that time.

 

My immediate thought is that the serum has a very light, almost liquidified gel sort of formula. It feels a bit slippery and spreads/pats easily on the skin without any need for rubbing to help it absorb. There is a fresh scent but it’s very light and not noticeable enough to bother anyone. I typically use 2-3 pumps at night, and then 1-2 pumps in the morning (when I have to put make up on over it). Once applied, it leaves no sticky residue or heaviness. Other products are easy to then layer on top of it and I find that it also wears well under make up.

 

Since the formula is a little bit cooling when you apply it, it’s also a good addition to my morning routine.

 

After using it for two weeks, I noticed that my skin was feeling very well hydrated and smoother than usual. I also had a minor break out on my chin when I first started to use this, and it cleared up completely within the week (and it was one of those awkward ones that I had issues with for a while). This is still some scarring, but I’m hoping that longer term use will fade that more. That being said, I’m unable to comment on the anti-wrinkle properties of this product and I didn’t see much brightening, so I will likely add in the Vitamin C serum after this weekend to boost that property more.

 

I don’t feel that this serum is a sort of miracle product that will perform miraculous feats that you see advertised pretty often, but instead it is a gentle formula that is effective over time. This is definitely very suitable for sensitive or problem skin and I think that this sort of slow, nourishing approach will be very beneficial for my skincare in the long term.

 

Purito Kbeauty Skincare Review Centella Green Level Buffet Serum

 

Overall, I really like Purito’s brand philosophy and I’m happy that they gave me the chance to try out their range! I’m going to continue to use this Buffet Serum in my skincare routine, as well as adding in their Pure Vitamin C Serum to see if it will help fade this acne scarring on my chin as well as some of my sun spots. I am currently also using their exfoliation pads, which I will also continue to do, and I intend on writing a thorough review for that at the end of my testing period.

 

So, until then, here’s my verdict!

 

SO WHAT IS IT?

A light, buffet serum that targets multiple skin concerns (Skin barrier, whitening, anti-wrinkle and hydration).

 

THE GOOD

  • Safe and natural ingredients
  • Environmentally friendly paper box packaging (for those who look for this)
  • No animal testing
  • Very hydrating and maintains that moisture through the day
  • Obvious improvements to skin breakouts
  • Fresh scent that isn’t overwhelming
  • Absorbs quickly and easy to layer other products
  • Works well under make up
  • Affordable

 

THE BAD

  • Not immediate results – product needs to be used over time
  • Brightening/Whitening benefits aren’t visible
  • Average, simple packaging (which some people may prefer and others may not)

 

RATINGS

  • PACKAGING | 3/5
  • PRICE POINT |4/5
  • HYDRATION | 5/5
  • BRIGHTENING/WHITENING | 1/5
  • ANTI-ACNE | 4/5
  • ABSORPTION | 5/5

OVERALL RATING? 7.3/10

 

WOULD I RECOMMEND?

This is a product that would definitely benefit someone is a sensitive skin type. Personally, my skin isn’t very sensitive so I’m used to using stronger and more potent products and ingredients (some of which probably aren’t suitable for all skintypes). For that reason, Purito is a brand that I would recommend people to check out themselves and to see if it suits their needs.

 

WHERE TO GET IT FROM

If you want to get your hands on the Centella Green Level Buffet Serum it is selling on for USD$17.30 for a 60mL bottle. Alternatively, you can also visit the Purito website to see all of the other products that they sell.

iUNIK Tea Tree Relief Serum Review

 

Image-2

🌿TEA TREE RELIEF SERUM 🌿
🔑 Tea Tree Leaf Water 67%.
🔑 Centella Asiatica Leaf Water 19.5%.
• Reviewing this in terms of its claims:
🍃 Powerful Relief: I do find this to be relieving but perhaps not as powerful as it claims. However, it does provide relief every single time I apply this without fail.
🍃 Soothing Care: I find that my skin is less inflamed every time I use this, in this way it does soothe and to some extent reduce pain when I am breaking out.
🍃 Natural Moisturising: In terms of moisture this does not provide a ton but does enough as I have not noticed any dry patches recently. However, I feel this is more down to my whole skincare routine rather than just this one product.
🍃 Whitening and wrinkle care: I think by whitening they actually mean brightening, which this serum hasn’t noticeably done for my skin. In terms of wrinkle care I don’t really have wrinkles but I’ve been using this on my forehead to see whether it’ll help with my frown lines in which makeup sometimes tends to set but it has not helped with that.
💚 Overall I rate this 3.5/5, this serum is just satisfactory, I wouldn’t say I’m disappointed by it but I’m just not wowed. Would I repurchase, not really, unless I notice anything impressive from continued use. I will say I have been using this for 2 months or so and there is still so much left!

Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Serum Review

 

 

IMG-1097

I bought this Elizavecca Witch Piggy Hell Pore Control Serum not so long ago. I was lured by the claim that the serum contains 97% of Hyaluronic Acid which is a really good moisturizer. And it wasn’t that expensive either, so I thought to myself- now or never.

I ordered it from RoseRoseShop and it came in less than 2 weeks (I was really amazed at how fast it came) straight from South Korea. I almost finished the bottle now and I feel it’s a perfect time to share my review on it.

Claims 

So what is this serum supposed to do? According to RoseRoseShop it:

  • ‘captures and continually diffuses water within the skin to restore its moisture balance and leave skin feeling soft and supple’
  • provides ‘enlarged pores care’ (whatever ‘enlarged pores care’ means, really)
  • has ‘whitening and wrinkles functionality’ (I really wonder what this is supposed to mean again but there we go)
  • is a ‘multi whitening and wrinkles sauce (sauce? like- sauce you can eat? Baffled. I don’t know what a sauce has to do with a serum, lol, but anyway) serum and a powerful moisturizer’

The product description isn’t too helpful in making clear what the serum is supposed to do to your skin but I think what can be deduced from it is it’s supposed to be a good moisturizer (mainly due to the high percentage of Hyaluronic Acid in it) and have whitening effects. But let’s proceed to the review.

 

Packaging

The serum comes in this little glass bottle:

IMG-1095

It comes with a small pipette. It’s easy to get the serum out of the bottle and I actually like that the bottle is made of glass- it’s much better to store cosmetics (especially the ones with actives that are unstable) in glass containers as it ensures their effectiveness lasts longer. However, because it’s glass it’s also fragile and I’m always afraid that I’ll drop it and the bottle will crash into small pieces. And the serum will be lost- forever. T^T

 

Ingredients and Texture

IMG-1091IMG-0042IMG-0044

You can see the ingredients list in the photo but I also found it on CosDna. What strikes me the most is that it REALLY contains 97% of Hyaluronic Acid. It’s pretty impressive. There are also other skin-friendly bits like, for example, Niacinamide, Arginine, Adenosine or Allantoin. So for this price, it’s a really decent serum in terms of the ingredients.

In terms of the texture, the serum is transparent and is very VERY watery. It makes it incredibly easy to spread and it also absorbs quickly so you don’t have to wait too long to continue with the next steps in your skincare routine. That’s a big plus for me as I always want to finish my evening skincare routine ASAP and just go to bed. The serum also has no smell.

 

My thoughts 

After using it for some time I noticed that my skin is plumper after applying it on my face. It’s also smoothe. And because it absorbs fast it doesn’t leave this tacky feeling some sheet masks do. Instead, it leaves my skin moisturized only internally so I can still put on my regular moisturizer without feeling I’m overwhelming my skin with too much stuff.

It also made my skin a bit tighter but I didn’t notice any change in the size of my pores as the claim ”enlarged pores care” would suggest. It’s made my face more even though and it seems it prevents breakouts. I rarely get spots but after starting using it I haven’t got any at all so far.

When it comes to the whitening effect, my face is already pretty white so I don’t think there’s much room for any brightening. The only noticeable effect is that my skin doesn’t look that dull anymore, so maybe that’s thanks to some of the whitening ingredients in the serum.

So let’s ask this important question- is it worth purchasing? It’s definitely a decent serum but it’s not my holy grail. I do like the fact that it contains 97% of Hyaluronic Acid and that it does moisturize my skin without making it feel sticky. And it isn’t that expensive so if you’re looking for a moisturizing serum it’s surely a good choice. I’ll certainly keep using it until I’ve used it up completely and maybe will repurchase as I think it’s a good idea to use it from time to time to plump my face without the tacky feeling that would make me compromise other steps in my skincare routine.

Swanicoco Pore Care Tightening Serum Review

 

Hi guys, happy Wednesday! Today’s review is about a product to control sebum, which I’ve been testing for three months. One of the employees of the brand (Kevin) was kind and contacted me to see if I was interested in trying several of their products, to which I said Yes immediately, because I had previously read about them in the reviews of other girls and they said good things, for its ingredients and all that. Also, I apologize for the quality of the photos, these days the light has been terrible and this was the best I could get. Greetings ^^

 

swanicoco pore care serum

To begin with I’ll tell you a little about the history of the brand:
Swanicoco started his business creating naturally fermented soaps. To produce excellent natural soaps, carefully select the best medicinal herbs, boil them and then ferment them.
Currently, they are the leading natural cosmetics company in the Republic of Korea. Thanks to its corporate philosophy, only what is obtained from nature and not artificial chemicals, are the best. In addition, they give top priority to obtaining high-quality ingredients, participate in incessant biodevelopment research to create a natural biological system,
Swanicoco doesn’t use ingredients that are harmful to the skin, such as dyes, artificial fragrances, chemical preservatives, steroids, alcohol, mineral oil, parabens and benzophenones. Instead, they try their best to use only natural and fermented extracts, they have engaged in relentless research to make sure that the natural components don’t conflict with each other when combined. They have obtained the optimal mixing method. Thanks to their efforts to create natural cosmetics that are safe, hypoallergenic, soft and ideal for all skin types, they have managed to integrate biotechnology into natural organic ingredients so that their cosmetics have the maximum effect of improving the skin.
Product Information
As our skin ages, we lose elasticity, which leads to naturally wider pores. Larger pores allow more sebum secretion, creating oily skin and other complexion problems. So, Swanicoco created the Serum to Tighten the Pores! This serum contains a patented ingredient called Evermat, which reduces by size and regulates the production of sebum. It also helps you maintain a clear and bright skin tone through deep cleansing. As an added benefit, other ingredients found in this serum help promote skin elasticity!

The serum arrives in a white box with silver letters and brand logos.
Around the box you can find product information in English and Hangul.

The serum is packaged in a silver-colored bottle, with grey letters and the logo of the brand. Around you can find product information. It contains 30 ml.

It has a practical pump that is pressed down to get the necessary amount.

Apparently, they have changed the design of the packaging, I’m not sure if they made any reformulation in the ingredients too, because all the information on their page is written in hangul.
swanicoco pore care serum
I was reviewing the list of ingredients in CoSDNA and it looks pretty clean, most of them are safe, not irritating and don’t cause acne.
I leave the links to the pages of ingredient analysis above, in case you want to read it, I tried to add the product in Skincarisma but the page is not working, when they fix it I will add it and update the post.
[UPDATE] Skincarisma’s page is already working and he let me add the ingredients of the product, I leave the direct link above.
Water, glycerin, dipropylene glycol, butylene glycol, methyl methacrylate crosspolymer, 1,2-hexanediol, enantia chlorantha bark extract, oleanolic acid, allantoin, betaine, sodium hyaluronate, carbomer, xanthan gum, arginine, anthemis nobilis flower extract, lavandula angustifolia (lavender) extract, portulaca oleracea extract, centella asiatica extract, punica granatum fruit extract, and cymbopogon schoenanthus oil.
Its texture is light and absorbs quickly, doesn’t leave a sticky feeling.
It has a white tone, similar to milk.

When I read about the brand for the first time I was very intrigued, I was struck by the fact they worked with natural and fermented ingredients, so when they proposed to review some of their products I thought it was the opportunity to try them.
This is a serum with a light texture, which is absorbed quickly and allows you to follow the steps of your routine, the problem is that I didn’t see the results they promise, it’s  supposed to decrease sebum production and fill it, but being honest I couldn’t notice any of the above.
I have some long pores on the sides of my nose and I noticed that it soften the area and fill a little, but it’s a momentary effect and I think to be a product that costs around $30 should do much more.
Apart from the disappointment with this product, I can tell you that I tried a duo of toner and emulsion of the brand and those are very good (I think the best, of all that I could try of them), just finish writing the review, I will share it with you.

 

Pros:

*  Good for dry and mixed skin

*  Free of parabens, silicones, synthetic dyes, synthetic fragrances, mineral oils.

*  It’s not sticky

 

Cons:

* It doesn’t leave lasting effects.

* Doesn’t minimize or improve the appearance of pores.

Innisfree Jeju Bamboo All-in-One Fluid Review

Innisfree finally comes with the bamboo line. There are 4 products in this line. The All-in-One Fluid attracts me the most because the name sounds like it is a multifunctional product. Usually multifunctional products are more concentrated and can be useful if you’re in a hurry.

The product claims to soothe irritated skin by UV rays, purify, and moisturize the skin for a clear complexion. It contains broad-leaf bamboo from Halla Mountain in Jeju. This All-in-One Fluid can be used as a toner, lotion, and serum.

 

***PACKAGING

This product comes in a 100 ml green pump bottle. This product uses the same pump dispenser type as the Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum. The pump squeezes enough product for one layer application. If you like to use a generous amount of the product, you may need more. The bottle is heavy and thicker than the GTS Serum. This All-in-One product has a plastic cap protector that makes it travel-friendly and simple. The expiry date is 12 months after opening.

***INGREDIENTS

The main star in Innisfree Jeju All-in-One Fluid is 85% of Sasa Quelpaertensis / Bamboo Water Extract. Bamboo is well known for its antioxidant and healing benefits. I have heard that Chinese people use bamboo to help heal their wound faster. It can reduce melanin production, helps to reduce dark spots.

It also contains many beneficial plant extracts such as Aloe Vera, Cantella Asiatica as UV rays absorber, Orchid, Camellia and Licorice Root, Pueraria Thunbergiana Root as an antioxidant, Citrus Unshiu Peel as anti-inflammatory and also Sodium Hyaluronate. It uses no synthetic colorants, no mineral oil, no animal-originated ingredients, no imidazolidinyl urea, no paraben, no alcohol. But this product does contain fragrance as the last ingredient.

***HOW IS IT?

The product is thicker than a regular toner but runnier than a regular serum. It almost has the same texture as the Innisfree Green Tea Seed.  It’s transparent, non-sticky and absorbs immediately. The only thing that I don’t like about this product is the fragrance. It is not that kind of an unpleasant smell, the fragrance is refreshing but it’s just too strong for me. I can still smell the fragrance after a few minutes after application. It can be layered if you have no problem with the fragrance.  It feels light, very refreshing and hydrating on the skin. It will be good for normal to oily skin. If you have dry skin you may need to use a few layers of it. You can feel how it soothes the skin immediately. It makes my skin feel very smooth and it’s great to use under the makeup. It helps to heal acne faster and soothes the skin after sun exposure. This product is perfect for the hot summer!
