Innisfree : Whitening Pore Sleeping Pack & Green Tea Seed Serum & Skin Clinic Mask || Review

Hello bunnies!!

Welcome back to my blog!~
Today I have some reviews to share with you guys of my 1 of my favourite skin care products as well as 2 new skincare products I've been trying (and loving!) lately~

Enjoy! ♡♡♡

Wonder why your skin might be looking dull?
Usually, dullness in your skin is caused by freckles, spots and uneven skin tone
To fight this and achieve brighter and fairer skin - you must first treat your skin with pore care products to brighten up your skin!

Whitening Pore Sleeping Pack
Sleeping Pack [Link]
The brightening seeping mask that takes care of your skin tone, dark spots and skin texture for transparency and brightness.
   1. 6 Types of citrus flavonoids found in tangerine peels make skin flawless.
   2. This sleeping pack brightens dull, uneven skin tone and dark spots by suppressing melanin 
      formation and smoothing out the texture around pore to make skin glow.

Squeezed tangerine solution for more refreshing, brighter skin. 
This squeezed tangerine solution is sourced from fresh tangerines grown on Jeju Island. It contains 6 kinds of flavonoids, which help make the skin look bright, clean and flawless. 

How To Use : After cream, apply an appropriate amount to face in an even layer. Leave on overnight and rinse with water in the morning.

Literally took the photo on the Right the moment I woke up....

My Review : The texture of the Whitening Pore Sleeping Pack is slightly jelly-like but not sticky to touch. It has a light citrus scent (due to containing tangerine peel) and absorbs into my skin with in 2 minutes. I found the sleeping pack to be quite moisturising and I was really pleased that it didn't leave my skin feeling sticky after applying it/while waiting for it to absorb. 
As you can see from my comparison photos, I've only used this sleeping pack for two nights so far and it has made a difference to my skin! I was surprised to find that overnight it left my skin feeling soft, smooth (it made my skin feel really nice to touch~) and hydrated in addition to making my skin brighter and slightly fairer.
The sleeping pack contains squeezed tangerine peels (tangerine peels are high in vitamins and flavonoids) - making it effective in pore treatment, skin whitening and moisturising.
Initially I wasn't sure what too expect from 2 nights of use - but I was really surprised and pleased with the results! I can't wait to continue using this sleeping mask and to see the long-term resultss.


Green Tea Seed Serum
Serum [Link]
A moisturising and nourishing serum containing eco-friendly Jeju fresh green tea and green tea seeds. Hydrates your skin from deep within.
   1. More moisture and freshness with 100% green tea.
      Rich in amino acids and minerals, green tea from Jeju's own green tea leaves - hydrates your skin.
   2. Dual Moisture-Rishing Technology derived from green tea and green tea seed oil.
      The fresh green tea deeply hydrates your skin and the green tea seed oil creates a strong moisture 
      barrier to keep your skin moisturised longer.
   3. The first thing to apply after a face wash!
      As the first skincare product you use, it helps hold moisture in your skin and prevents moisture loss.

How To Use : Pump a dollop of the serum on your hand and apply it on your face and neck.

My Review : I've been using this Green Tea Seed Serum from Innisfree for about 3 years now! It is my absolute favourite - my go-to serum which I use everyday as part of my skin care routine.
I use this serum after applying my toner, then continuing with my usual skincare routine. On my "lazy" days - I usually stick to my toner, serum and eye cream.
Green Tea is a popular ingredient used in many skincare products and is known for it's moisturising properties.This serum is made of 100% squeezed green tea - making it a perfect product to start off your skincare routine with, in order to having moisturised skin.
What I love about this serum is that it is "light", not sticky and it absorbs quickly into your skin.
I use about 1.5-2 pumps to cover my entire face as well as to apply the "extra" to my neck.
If you have dry skin - I would recommend you to try out this serum, as I've been using it for 3 years already and it is my favourite.
I especially love to use this during the winter season, as my skin tends to get a little drier. This serum always helps me to moisturise my skin - keeping it hydrated, as well as helping me to create a good moisturised base for my makeup.
Also, I find the serum to be quite gentle. Even when I have allergy reactions (which results in my face becoming very sensitive), I find that the serum is gentle enough for me to use and it also has a slight cooling effect on my skin.


Skin Clinic Mask

100% Cotton Face Masks [Link]
Vita C - This fine delicate cotton mask with functional whitening improving benefits contains vitamin C derivative to brighten your dull skin, leaving it looking clear and radiant.
BHA - This fine delicate cotton mask contains BHA to remove accumulated dead cells, leaving your skin texture feeling sleek and soft. 
Hyaluronic AcidThis fine delicate cotton mask contains hyaluronic acid to relieve skin dryness, leaving your skin feeling dewy and hydrated.

How To Use : 
1. After cleansing, use toner to refine skin texture.
2. Take out mask from package and remove film. Evenly adhere it to entire face, avoiding eye and lip area.
3. Remove the sheet after 10-20 minutes and gently pat to allow the remaining formula to absorb into skin.

My Review :
The mask I decided to try out first was the Skin Clinic Mask : Vita C.
I was surprised by how thin the mask was! These masks are very thin and light - thinner than the Innisfree "It's Real Squeeze Masks". They are made of 100% natural cotton, making the mask very soft on your skin.
Personally, I found the mask to be very comfortable to wear. It didn't slip around or attempt to drop off my face while I stood up to do my things.
Unlike other masks I've used before, the liquid serum which is used in the mask felt light on my skin and it wasn't sticky to touch. I'm quite happy as it absorbed quickly into my skin and it left my skin smooth to touch.
I will definitely be buying more of these masks from this "Skin Clinic Mask" line soon as I really love how thin and comfortable the actual mask is as well as the texture of the serum.

Hope you guys enjoyed my reviews!
If you'd like to get the serum, mask or pore sleeping pack - don't forget to visit the InnisfreeWorld website!
Also, staring from March there will be an event where you'll be able to get various free gifts upon every purchase of the Green Tea Seed Serum~

    You have such amazing skin and you take such good care of it :). I like Innisfree makeup products! I am testing out the Green Tea sleeping pack atm and I swear it makes me break out :(. I hope the serum doesn't do the same!

  8. I must try the sleeping pack and serum! I've tried the essence and cream from their White Tone Up line and loved the essence, but the cream left my face fairly sticky and even kind of itchy. I don't know if it was an allergic reaction, but decided it wasn't worth keeping around since it gave me that reaction :(

    1. The green tea serum is honestly one of my must-have skincare items!
      oh nooo! If anything makes you feel itchy - wash it off straight away!!
      Don't let it affect your skin or give you breakouts ><
      xx Charmaine

  9. Oh, that sleeping pack looks perfect for acne scarring that shoudl be lightened! I'm pale, but my skin is also super dull and kind of gray, so maybe I'll give this one a try!
    Your photos are so beautiful btw! *__*

    1. awww Evelyne! I love your drawings so much <3 Thank you for reading~
      The pack does help with brightening - so do give it a go ♡♡♡
      xx Charmaine

    I like the sound of the sleeping mask, but qurl, your skin is already perfect so I'm not even sure if that's a fair before + after photo?
