INNISFREE SKINCARE & COSMETICS: ESCAPE TO THE ISLAND!
innisfree is the number 1. beauty brand in Korea (amid stiff competition), so you know they’re doing something right! Despite its popularity, the brand remains true to its core mantra: affordable skincare using sustainably sourced ingredients of the highest quality. Innisfree uses natural materials from the pristine volcanic haven of Jeju Island, famed for its purity and efficacy.
Fun fact: In case you’re wondering where the name comes from, innisfree (commonly misspelled as Inis Free, Inisfree, Innesfree or Innis Free) was inspired by the poem “The Lake Isle of Innisfree” by William Butler Yeats. The poet expresses a desire to forsake urban life for a beautiful and peaceful island.
Try the difference! You can find the best of innisfree and its most popular ingredient ranges on Kanvas Beauty. Let’s go through some of them below.
INNISFREE GREEN TEA RANGE: ANTIOXIDANT-RICH PRODUCTS FOR COMBINATION SKIN
All different skin types rock with Innisfree’s green tea range, which features organic green tea from Korea's famed Jeju Island and offers natural protection against free radicals and environmental aggressors. In our humble opinion, it’s excellent for combination skin in particular. Combination skin can be really tricky to manage because it’s on a spectrum - our sebum levels and dry areas can vary and move around depending on what stage of life we’re in, as well external factors like weather and stress. That’s what makes the green tea range so effective, as it offers levels of lightweight moisture (and won’t spark a breakout). For instance, a particularly bad bout of dehydration can be quickly soothed by innisfree’s Green Tea Sleeping Mask. At the richer end, this low pH and ultra-moisturizing mask innisfree face mask is packed with green tea-derived enzymes. It will help you wake up in a more balanced state without that tight feeling. Follow it up with a generous application of the Green Tea Seed Deep Cream afterwards.
Simply looking to maintain balance? Reach for the innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum. Containing a whopping 75.9% green tea as well as amino acids and volcanic minerals, this nourishing innisfree serum will comfortably hydrate dry patches without feeling sticky or adding to your oily T-zone. It works beautifully under the innisfree Green Tea Seed Cream, which is a feather-light gel that hydrates without greasiness. You’ll soon see why these two products are the range’s bestsellers!
If you find yourself in balmy conditions or find that for whatever reason, your skin is going through an oily patch, then try the popular innisfree Green Tea Foam Cleanser with the Green Tea Cleansing Oil to draw out excess sebum. Afterwards, use the Green Tea Balancing Cream to restore the oil/water balance to your complexion.
INNISREE VOLCANIC SERIES: PORE-SUCKING, CLARIFYING GOODNESS
The best seller out of the Jeju Volcanic is without a doubt the innisfree's Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask. Deep-cleansing and creamy, it’s infused with lactic acid and actual volcanic clusters from Jeju island. re finely ground hardened volcanic lava that help absorb excess sebum and impurities from pores. These finely ground volcanic particles naturally absorb excess sebum and make it the most mineral-rich innisfree mask in the pantheon. It’s one of our favourite products for shine-control, and is great on a congested T-zone.
If you’re loving the idea of the innisfree clay mask but want something a shade less drying, then try the peel-off version. Coming in a thinner clay gel texture, it’s suitable for sensitive skin and won’t harden and crack on your face like a traditional kaolin or bentonite mask. The perfect innisfree toner to pair with these products is the Jeju Volcanic Pore Toner 2X for a toite pore-cleansing combination. Light and refreshing, it removes every little trace of dirt without stripping. Nor does it irritative sensitive skin (hooray!). But don’t just take our word for it – check out this glowing innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Toner reviewfrom blogger The Hungarian Brunette.
TIP: There’s also an award-winning Micellar Cleansing Foam if you want to bring that Jeju volcanic magic to your makeup removal routine!
INNISFREE CHERRY BLOSSOM SERIES: DEWY SKIN IN DRY CONDITIONS
With a mention in Vogue, you know the innisfree Cherry Blossom Jelly Cream’s gotta be good! This clear, jelly moisturizer with Cherry Blossom extracts, vitamin E and niacinamide feels like a cool splash of water for tired, dull skin. Its watery hydration is great for dehydrated (rather than dry) skin and leaves a soft dewy finish. What’s the difference between those two terms? The former is usually self-inflicted or an outcome of the environment, and results in a lack of water hydration in the skin. The latter refers to a perpetual condition where skin doesn’t produce enough sebum, and therefore requires an oil-based moisture. For perpetually dry skin, try layering the cream with innisfree Jeju Cherry Blossom Skin toner. This innisfree toner is particular great at reducing redness and soothing dry patches without weighing your skin down.
If you’re looking for a primer or ultra-light natural coverage, try the innisfree Cherry Blossom Tone Up Cream. We love it because unlike other tone-up creams which leave a white cast, the delicate pink colour of this moisturizer offers a more natural finish. It'll brighten, hydrate, give you a more even complexion, and protect your skin from environmental aggressors. It's also a great base under make-up (no pilling!).
HONOURABLE MENTION #1: INNISFREE NO-SEBUM MINERAL POWDER
Is this the best setting powder ever for oily skin? Possibly. Loved by Krave Beauty’s Liah Yoo and named as one of the best Korean makeup products that every K-Beauty fan needs to try by Allure, this is a classified holy grail. This loose, translucent powder is formulated with the brand’s hallmark Jeju natural minerals as well as mint extract to naturally control your skin’s sebum levels. Despite looking white in the pot, it finishes almost clear and matte on most skin tones (sadly, this is not one for deeper skin tones), leaving a soft focus, airbrushed finish. It's perfect in front of the camera and for general, everyday wear. Best of all, it can last for more than 8 hours - it works full time! Just use a wide, kabuki-style brush or puff to sweep it across your oily areas to keep your complexion looking fresh.
HONOURABLE MENTION #2: INNISFREE JEJU ORCHID EYE CREAM
Rich, creamy and hydrating, this under-eye moisturizer is one of the brand’s international best-sellers. Incredibly beautiful and rare, Jeju orchids are a natural source of antioxidants. Add to this peptides and hyaluronic acid, and you have one very luxurious with hydrating moisturizer – without the luxury price tag. It’ll target fine lines and protect the delicate skin around your peepers.
THE FAST FACTS
Q: Is innisfree a good brand?
A: Koreans certainly think so – this is still the no. 1 brand in a country that’s spoiled for choice when it comes to cosmetics! On a more personal level though, the answer to that question depends on how your skin responds. Our experience with the brand is that it’s particular good for oily, acne prone and combination skin. Its key featured ingredients of green tea, clay and volcanic ash are wonderfully cleansing and clarifying. If you’ve got skin that’s more on the dry side, you’ll probably find that innisfree products work more effectively in a layered routine than on its own.
Q: What are the best innisfree products?
A: Again, the answer to this question if fairly subjective. If you browse through the innisfree reviews on Reddit, you’ll see some spirited discussion on what the brand’s best products are! However, we can tell you that on Kanvas Beauty, the best sellers include the innisfree Green Tea Seed eye cream, Green Tea Seed Serum and Volcanic Clay Mask.
Q: Is innisfree made in Korea?
A: Innisfree is made in Korea. It’s one of those brands that managed to be enormously popular in its native country, but also crossed over with a bang into the global market. Today, you can find innisfree stores and concessions in virtually any country. It’s the consummate K-Beauty success story.
Q: Is innisfree really all-natural?
A: There’s no universal standard or definition of what’s considered ‘natural’ when it comes to cosmetics. However, innisfree is reasonably clean in that it is free from parabens, sulfates, phthalates, PEGs or mineral oil. It also employs large concentrations of its featured natural ingredients (all of which are responsibly sourced). However, it does include fragrances in its formulas, which may irritate some skin types. We don’t find it very lingering and kinda dig the cherry blossom scent, but it really depends on the user! If you’ve got sensitive skin, make sure you patch test first just to be on the safe side.
