Innisfree Green Tea Kit Review (Green Tea Serum, Green Tea Balancing Skin, Green Tea Balancing Lotion, Green Tea Balancing Cream)

Okay, this is long, long, lonngggg overdue. Innisfreeworld had a promotion in early 2015 (around March until May) where if you participate in an ordering tutorial you could claim a free Green Tea Kit.

The Innisfree Green Tea Kit contains some items from their best selling Green Tea line and forms one of Innisfree's 8 Solutions. I will also be giving some quick thoughts on products in their order of use:

1. Innisfree Green Tea Serum 5ml
2. Innisfree Balancing Skin 10ml
3. Innisfree Balancing Lotion 10ml
4. Innisfree Balancing Cream 5ml

I was lucky and managed to get two sets of the Green Tea line to try out as I selected some Green Tea samples with my massive mask order. Green Tea is the line for moisturising.

The green tea line has a very distinctive cologne smell. I hated it when I first smelt it, but after using two samples and the Green Tea mask, I have decided I like the scent. Please keep in mind that the Balancing line is for combination skin and that I have dry skin. I also used all the samples as a full line.

Innisfree Green Tea Serum
Counterintuitively, the serum is the first step in the line. It is also one of Innisfree's best selling items of all time. This is a quick absorbing, non-stick and fairly moisturising serum but I wouldn't say it was more moisturising than other serums I have tried (e.g., Skinfood, It's Skin). It is designed to be layered with other steps rather than used on its own but I would be comfortable with using it by itself without a moisturising toner. Good value and I have had serious thoughts about purchasing a full size of this.

Innisfree Balancing Skin
I don't have any special thoughts or feelings about the Skin. It is a thicker type of toner and another layering step. I can do without it.

Innisfree Balancing Lotion
Lotions are thin creams that can be used as the cream step in hotter or more humid weather. It was a light running lotion that I found was comfortable for the day time. I also do not hold any special sentiments for the lotion.

Innisfree Balancing Cream

This cream also has a fairly thin, light, and comfortable texture on the skin. It keeps my face moisturised by sealing in all the other steps. I think this is just enough for me in Autumn. This cream did not break me out or cause any CCs in my skin for the ten or so days I used it for.

Overall, I'm most impressed by the serum. I would like to try the Deep Moisture cream. I think the Skin and the Lotion are unnecessary (and somewhat forgettable) for me.

Bonus: I really liked reading what each of Innisfree's lines are on the cardboard wrapping. I have tried or received samples from each of these available lines except for the Whitening Care line.

The cardboard wrapping can be 'upcycled' and turned into little drawers. Innisfree has a video on YouTube showing how to create the little drawers. Because I'm so late with writing this post, I don't think Innisfree even gives away these 8 Solutions kits anymore. They used to do a promotion where if you spend over a certain amount, you get one in your package, and you can send one to a friend for free.

Here are my drawers. I would recommend using scissors and a hobby knife/box cutter. The process of making something simple is so relaxing.
