Beauty Talk | I Heart Green Tea

Friday, 11 March 2016


Yes! Not only the regular green tea that you're usually served at Japanese restaurants but also my selection of beauty products that are based on green tea extracts. 


  • Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Special Kit
I got this trial kit after making a purchase at local Innisfree store in Paradigm Mall end of last year and finally got the chance to try it as I just finished a round of skincare. There are 3 types of basic Green Tea skincare line offered by the brand and Balancing is for those with normal to oily combination skin. I have to say that I really love this skincare line as it's quite moisturising for my skin and I don't think they're sticky at all. Complete with samples of the first serum, skin (toner), lotion and cream, they all went really well with my skin and I do want to purchase the full sizes.
  • Innisfree Green Tea It's Real Squeeze Mask
I have to say, basic sheet masks from Innisfree is probably the best I've tried so far. I used to love the ones from Etude House and the regular TheFaceShop sheet masks but I've been loving these as the essence is much better in terms of the wellness of it being absorbed into my skin, the scent and the paper sheet are much better.
  • Innisfree Green Tea Sleeping Mask
There are days I want to try new products and sometimes I got bad breakouts so during the night, I'll just wash my face and slather this on. I don't know why but these are much better at calming my skin compared to Laneige Water Sleeping Mask or maybe it's just me. Laneige's is indeed good at moisturizing but this is also better compared on those days when I had sunburn, the first treatment is of course the aloe vera gel but at night I'll put this on. 
  • TheFaceShop Real Nature Green Tea Mask
I love these limited edition ones compared to the regular KRW1000 sheet masks from the brand. There are other great variants inclusive this and I definitely will go and grab some more if it's still available by the time I finished the ones I bought during last month's haul. The scent is just great and the essence is much better compared to the regular ones. 

Last but not least, that Green Tea bags! I started to have it in my morning before going to work as coffee in the morning only works in the evening for me and I couldn't feel more awake. When I have puffy eyes especially after a late night binge-watching my fave K-drama, I'll just use two bags to make my drink in my teapot and then just chill them in the refrigerator for like 2 to 3 minutes. Then I'll just placed one on each eye and my eyes will definitely be better. 


That's all from me! Hope you enjoy this Beauty Talk post of the month and have a great weekend!

Until next post, annyeong~
