Good morning, all!! So I’ve been sick since yesterday – my voice is gone pretty much and I’ve skipped my morning coffees. I am not completely coherent without that in the mornings, so bear with me if I sound a little crazy, lol!
NOTE: I have normal to dry skin.
Today I’m doing a comparison review of Innisfree’s Green Tea Moisture Cream and their Green Tea Seed Cream.
This cream has 57.4% green tea extract!
HERE is a link for the CosDNA rating and the list of ingredients!
Below you can see the jar itself:
It’s a lot smaller than I thought for some reason, but it’s definitely similar to the amount that you get when you buy a cream from Narüko! Also, a little goes a really long way with this cream. The manufacturing date is printed on the bottom. I just love the design on the lid, it’s gorgeous!
The cream is sealed with a plastic liner and then a plastic rim to seal it tight:
The cream itself is very solid in the jar, and very, very creamy!! Usually, if you wanted (for some reason) to stick your finger in the jar all the way to the bottom, you could – but not with this cream. It’s really thick and has a solid feel if you push down on it in the jar. If you guys have ever used those little tins of Nivea cream, it kind of reminds me of that consistency! It still blends out very easily, though, as you can see below:
You only need a little for your whole face – the amount on the back of my hand above would be enough! Also, I should mention that there is a little fragrance in this one. It’s a light, refreshing scent that doesn’t linger.
And now, the Green Tea Seed Cream:
The packaging is the same, but with slightly different colors.
This cream has 52.4% green tea extract! And it also has green tea seed oil.
HERE is the link for the CosDNA rating / ingredient list!
The manufacturing date is on the bottom here as well. Lovely packaging, again! Simple but elegant.
I personally expected this one to be richer than the other, but it’s quite the opposite. This one is much more gel-like and less thick. It’s more translucent than the other as well. This one has a more pleasant fragrance than the other in my opinion – it smells just like the Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum.
Both creams are very moisturizing, but I do think that the Green Tea Moisture Cream does hydrate more intensely. If you need a strong occlusive, I would highly recommend this one! It was definitely made with Dry Skin in mind, as it says on its packaging. Those with Oily Skin, stay farrrrr away from this one!! Even for those with dry skin, I think this one is best used in the evening.
For the summer, I think I’d probably prefer to use the Green Tea Seed Cream, because it’s lighter but still really moisturizing. This one could also probably be used in the morning as well, without being too heavy. The Green Tea Moisture Cream will be a life-saver in the winter!
Overall, I really like both and they do moisturize my face very well! They are fragranced, but it’s not overpowering or unpleasant and the smell doesn’t linger. They moisturize much better than the Narüko Night Gelly or the Missha Snail Cream that I was using before!! I will definitely repurchase when I’m out and I’m excited to try out more things from this line! 🙂
