Innisfree Jeju Cherry Blossom Range Review

October 14, 2019

Hi guys, today I'll be sharing all about Innisfree's Jeju Cherry Blossom Range.


If you guys remember, last month I attended Innisfree's Jeju Cherry Blossom Tone Up Pop-up Store in Mytown. Click here to read all about it!


I've used the products for a few weeks now, and I'm finally going to be sharing my thoughts about each product with you guys.

WHAT IS IT
The Innisfree Jeju Cherry Blossom Range contains Jeju Cherry Blossoms formulated with Jeju Cherry leaf extract for clearer and brighter skin. It also features natural Betaine to help retain moisture for dewy-looking skin.

This line features 1 toner (called a skin), one lotion (moisturizer for dry/normal skin), one jelly cream moisturizer (for oily/acne skin) and one tone up cream (which is a new addition to the line). Innisfree specifically said that the tone-up cream was made to leave no unnatural ashy/grey cast, instantly brightening dull skin and giving a natural tone-up effect for a glowing complexion.



WHERE TO BUY
These products are now available nationwide from Innisfree's stores + website.


I feel like the prices are quite affordable (like how Innisfree's prices usually are), and they even gave away a free hand mirror for a specific time:



PACKAGING
In line with the cherry blossom theme, this line features pinky packaging and faux-stone caps.


The packaging is pretty and minimalist. Each product comes packaged in its own box (which has both Korean and English descriptions):


And all 4 products come hygienically sealed when you first open it:



INGREDIENTS
The toner and the jelly cream are paraben-free, sulfate-free, alcohol-free, silicone-free, EU allergen-free & fungal acne safe. The lotion is the same except it is not fungal acne-safe, and the tone-up cream is similar as well but is not silicone-free.

I took a look at the ingredient lists of these products are was pretty happy to see that they were all very clean. They all feature mostly EWG-green level ingredients with a dash of yellow ones, meaning that these products are very unlikely to cause irritations.

HOW TO USE
You can use these products for both day and night time. You can choose your moisturizer based on your skin type + finish it off with the tone-up cream during the day.


Morning Skincare Routine
Jeju Cherry Blossom Skin > Jeju Cherry Blossom Lotion / Jelly Cream > Jeju Cherry Blossom Tone-up Cream

Night Skincare Routine
Jeju Cherry Blossom Skin > Jeju Cherry Blossom Lotion / Jelly Cream

Since the tone-up cream has SPF/UV protection,  make sure to double cleanse at the end of the day.


MY THOUGHTS
The Jeju Cherry Blossom Skin was a pretty nice toner to use. The scent is quite yummy and light, but nonetheless there. I didn't mind it because I thought it was quite pleasant, but I think it's something to highlight for those who do not like fragrance.


The texture is very light and thin, and I would really recommend it for morning use. It gives a very fresh feeling after application and isn't sticky at all.


Overall I think this toner is quite nice. For the price, the amount you get (200ml) and the effect, I think it's a decent toner. Personally I really like the thin texture and would recommend it to someone looking for a toner with cooling effects. I don't think it made enough visible change/effects on my skin, but I do like how it feels + how it hydrates and tones my face.


The Jeju Cherry Blossom Lotion is made for those with normal to dry skin so I was expecting it to be thicker. It's actually more of a light cream/non-runny emulsion texture which I think those with oily skin like me will not mind.


It also has the same scent and absorbs pretty quickly into the skin. It leaves the skin nourished with this feeling of smooth, buttery softness. It doesn't leave a shine nor is it sticky.


I quite enjoyed using this moisturizer. It's slightly cooling and is quite moisturizing, even with just a tiny amount. It spreads well and I think would be nice to use all year round, both for day and night. As for effects, I used it on half of my face to compare with the Jelly Cream for a few weeks, and I think the effects were pretty similar.


The Jeju Cherry Blossom Jelly Cream is super unique! It has a light, water-gel texture that is super lightweight, supercooling and unlike any other gel I tried.


Compared to Etude House's water gels, it does not smell alcohol-y at all as it contains no alcohol. Unlike aloe vera gels, it does not leave a sticky layer nor does it take some time to absorb. The cherry blossom scent is there (though very minimal) and it absorbs quickly into the skin, leaving no shine or stickiness.


To be honest the only differences I could find between the lotion and the jelly cream was that the lotion was more hydrating, the jelly cream was more cooling and that the scent was slightly less in the jelly cream. Both helped make my skin look slightly more even, and both also hydrated my skin nicely. If you're someone like me who like a bit more richness, I would go for the lotion. If you're all about light, airy skin, go for the unique jelly cream.


The Jeju Cherry Blossom Tone-up Cream is pinkish in colour and has the same scent (though quite light, similar to the jelly cream). It is cooling once you apply it as well and has a milky, lotion-y texture.


I don't think it was very hydrating, but as you're supposed to apply it after moisturzing, it wasn't that big of a deal


It really does help tone up your skin naturally, I would say 1 shade lighter. It did not leave my skin looking gray, however I thought the effect was pretty minimal. I don't see myself making my skin 1 shade lighter just to put on foundation/makeup on top of it, nor do I see myself applying this to my whole body just to be slightly fairer.

To be honest, I didn't really feel this product was necessary in this line haha. It does help to even out your skin tone, but I feel like the lotion/jelly cream does a pretty good job of doing that already.


FINAL THOUGHTS
I think the toner, lotion and jelly cream are solid products that I would recommend you guys to try out. The tone-up cream is more of a splurge/not really necessary in my opinion. If you're someone who is already fair and is into getting a tone-up effect/doesn't want to apply makeup base, this would be an ok fit I think. However, if you have a more tan skin tone, this will help bring up your skin tone naturally, but not enough for me to recommend you to buy it.


And those are my thoughts on the products from Innisfree's Jeju Cherry Blossom Range! If you're trying them out, you can check them out in any of Innisfree's stores nationwide.

And that's it for my review! Thanks for dropping by my blog, see y'all in my next post!
