Review: Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral Skin and Lotion

I talk about the Jeju Sparkling Mineral line from Innisfree approximately 3 months ago when I discuss how I love their Mineral Essence as a light-weighted yet highly moisturizing essence. Today, I am going to discuss two other items from this line, the Mineral Skin and Emulsion. This would then complete my collection of the Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral basic skincare line. I still have another review on its Cleansing Mousse coming up, but I'll keep that for later.

As discussed previously, the entire concept of this popular line from Innisfree comes from mineral water, which is water in its purest form with all traces of mineral removed. The water molecules of the mineral water are then small enough to penetrate deeper and faster into your skin than normal water. Remember all the stories you heard about people getting medical benefits from bathing in hot spring water? This should be how the theory works.

Intrigued by this refreshing yet highly moisturizing skincare line, something that you really need in a hot climate country like Malaysia, I decided to grab four items from this Jeju Sparkling Mineral line. Let's find out what I thought about them below.

Both Jeju Sparkling Mineral Toner and Lotion have cute, bubbly-looking round-shaped designs. Both comes in twisted-opened caps with a narrow 1-2 cm passage that allows you to pour the contents out. Although you can recycle your bottles easier this way, I always prefer skincare items in pump which is more hygienic and convenient to use.

Review: Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Water

It's not a secret that cleansing is the most important part of our skincare regime. Without properly cleaning your face, skincare actives will be blocked at the entrance and cannot go any deeper into your skin and do their jobs. The same goes for makeup -- your makeup will fit better onto your skin if you have flawless complexion. Like how you prefer drawing on a clean paper instead of a dirty one. And if you don't do your cleansing properly, you will be getting all the terrible consequences -- from premature-aging, dullness, blackheads to acne. So, it's really time to start taking the cleansing step seriously now.

In fact, I have been practicing double cleansing before I know that this concept exists -- the moment I learned that sunscreen should be removed with a makeup remover. You guys know that I hate sunscreen (I have reiterated on that many times before in my previous posts) and anything beyond that including makeups. So, the idea of not properly removing all sunscreen of my face at night grosses me out.

Since I rarely put on makeup, my double cleanse is very simple, it is either "sunscreen-only" or "sunscreen-and-more":

  • [sunscreen-only]: cleansing water/gel + foam cleanser 
  • [sunscreen-and-more]: cleansing oil/sherbet cleanser+ foam cleanser 
  • [no-sunscreen-weekends]: foam cleanser only 

So far, my favourite cleansing oil/sherbet cleanser is Banila Co Clean it Zero. I have a few cleansing water/gel in my favourites list though: Senka Perfect Gel, Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Water, and Nature Republic Jeju Sparkling Cleansing Water. I am a picky customer when it comes to choosing the right cleansing water/gel/oil for my skin. I prefer something watery, non-sticky, easy-to-wash, gentle and will leave my face feeling clean.

Today, I am going to share with you guys one of my favourite cleansing water -- the Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Water.
