Innsifree Skin Clinic Mask – Hyaluronic Acid Review

4

Hi everyone,

     If you have been reading my blog regularly, you would have known that I have dry skin and hence love using sheet masks as they are intensely hydrating.  I have tried and reviewed few sheet masks from Innisfree which you can read here & here that I quite liked.  I also got a sheet mask from Freeman which was quite disappointing.  I also liked the MaskerAide sheet masks but they were costly compared to the innisfree sheet masks though I felt the hydrating effect was the same.  And I wanted to try the skin clinic sheet mask from innisfree which is a bit costly than the normal innisfree sheet mask and they claim to be highly moisturizing and comes in different variants.  I brought the hyaluronic acid one as hyaluronic acid provides intense moisturization, so let’s see how well it fared compared to the normal innisfree sheet mask.

Hey everyone,

     If you have been reading my blog regularly, you will know that I have already reviewed four hand creams & a cuticle cream in a year and that is how much I use them all through the year.  My love for hand creams started after I started living in Finland due to the weather condition here as I never used to use hand creams regularly when I was in India.  Today’s review is on the Green Tea Pure Gel hand cream by Innisfree which I used it during the summers both here and during the vacation in India.  I have already reviewed the Innisfree Olive real moisture hand cream here.

     I have always wanted to try sheet masks which are famous in Korean & Japanese skin care but never tried one as I could not get it in India and when Innisfree opened its first store in Delhi,  I got hold of it.  I chose the Olive & Green tea variant and they have many other variants to choose.  If you are new to the concept of sheet masks, they are like sheets in the shape of the face leaving holes for the eye and lips and saturated with serum.  You just apply put it over your face, leave for some time then remove the sheet and just massage the remaining serum into the skin.  It is so easy to use as there is no preparation required, no washing or scrubbing involved. The sheet might not fit exactly to your face, but you can adjust it and it pretty much covers your face. They also have eye flaps, so you close and cover your eyes, but you can either tear them or fold them down if you do not want to put in on your eyes.  I have oily combination skin, I do feel my skin gets stretched and dry due to the harsh winters and indoor heating system here in Turku, Finland where I live. The sheet masks leave my skin highly moisturized as they are saturated with serum and I usually do not use a moisturizer after this.  It might feel heavy for oily skin people or in winters but you can use it before bed, remove it and it will be a substitute for your night cream.  The olive one felt more moisturizing than the green tea but I think the level of moisturization did not differ so much.  My skin felt somewhat sticky for atleast around 30 mins even after massaging the serum well but the feeling faded completely afterwards.  So, it is best to use it before going to bed.  Both the masks had intense alcoholic smell as soon as you open the pack, but it just goes away in a few minutes and does not bother you after you put the masks on to your face.  The recommended time is 10-20 mins, but I usually leave it for 30 minutes and the sheet do not dry up, it will still feel moist when you remove it.  These does not do anything miracles for your skin, but it just leaves them very much moisturized and you can use it now and then when you feel your skin need more nourishment.  I am planning to buy some other variants  too to intensely moisturize my skin in winters.

     Innisfree hand cream comes in a tin foil packaging with screw type cap.  I do not prefer these kind of packaging as dents appear as time goes by and if you are using it on the go you have to be careful not to lose the small cap.  But, it is travel friendly otherwise as the packaging is intact and the cap shuts tightly.  I prefer the plastic tube packaging with the cap attached to it for hand creams.  The hand cream smells mildly of olives and also have some citrusy smell to it, I am not able to pinpoint the actual fragrance.  I am not a fan of the smell, but it fades away after some time post application.  The hand cream is thick but spreads well and get absorbed easily into the skin.  Hands does not feel greasy and you do not have to wait for the cream to disappear before touching things.  It leaves the hands quite moisturized and hands feel soft even after couple of washes.  But if wash your hands very frequently or if you have very dry skin thegn you have re-apply as needed, otherwise twice a day application is enough.  Very small amount of cream is needed each time and will lasts you for around 3-4 months or more if you apply twice a day.  This is a good moisturizing hand cream that  makes skin supple with continuous usage.

Review on Innisfree Camellia Shine Hair Mist

Hello all,

Today I will be reviewing the Camellia Shine Hair Mist from the Korean brand, Innisfree

ca1

About the product:  Formulated with Jeju Camellia ingredients, this product helps to reveal shiny and soft hair as the silk protein of the moisture layer imparts elasticity to your hair and captures the nutrients absorbed in the oil layer and thus coats your hair twice, presenting a moisturized and resilient wavy hair style.

Directions: Shake well and spray onto wet or dry hair from 10cm distance and style where curling is desired.

     I have heard good reviews about Innisfree products especially about their green tea seed range.  I picked few products in my visit to their store and this is one of them.  It is basically a hair mist you can use on wet or dry hair during styling your hair.  The hair mist comes in a red plastic bottle with a spray.  The particular bottle I got had some problem as the spray did not work at all which turned out to be a disappointment to me.  So, I transferred it to another spray bottle to use it. The hair mist is bi-phased i.e., it has an oil component and a water component and it has to be shaken well to mix the 2 layers before use.  It has a kind of floral smell which is not my favorite though I am ok with it, but people with very sensitive noses might not like it.  I mostly use it when I blow dry my hair as it also acts as a heat protectant.  Though they have particularly mentioned to use it during curling, I use it both when straightening or curling my hair. The spray coats the hair well leaving it lightly moisturized for a couple of days.  It does not weigh the hair down if not used too much and the amount will lasts for at least 8-10 months if you use it twice or thrice a week depending on your hair length.  It is basically a good hair spray that also controls frizz to some extent. You can give it a try if you are looking for a decent hair spray and it is better to smell it before buying.
