Their skincare range features 12 unique ingredients from Jeju, each carefully researched about and selected to target specific skincare functions. Apart from their ever popular signature Green Tea line, we guarantee you’ll also fall in love with the other wallet-friendly and eco-friendly products that they offer. We’ve compiled a list of 19 bestselling and highly raved-about Innisfree products (categorised into each distinct skincare and product line for your convenience), so you can keep your skin looking fresh and dewy from the inside out!
Known for its hydrating properties, Innisfree’s best-selling skincare range features its key Jeju-derived ingredient: Beauty Green Tea. This special ingredient was carefully chosen after a study of 2401 green tea varieties, and goes through a “Double Squeeze” process in order to capture the optimum amount of active ingredients and deliver deep moisturising benefits to the skin.
1. Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum ($37)
It’s impossible to talk about Innisfree without mentioning their highly-raved about and bestselling Green Tea Seed Serum. This well-loved serum is a holy grail item for many, with over 10 million bottles sold since its launch. Infused with 16 types of amino acids and Dual-Moisture-Rising Technology™, its lightweight texture is perfect for our humid, sunny weather – it nourishes your skin from within and retains moisture without adding too much shine. Simply apply a thin layer of this formula to your face after cleansing and toning, and you’re good to go!
2. Innisfree Green Tea Morning Cleanser ($16)
Innisfree’s Green Tea Morning Cleanser has a clean and subtle scent and is known for its ability to remove impurities from your pores, while keeping your skin feeling moisturised and dewy. Simply squeeze an appropriate amount of gel and lather onto your face for a thorough and light morning cleanse. Tea-rrific!
3. Innisfree Green Tea Seed Skin ($29)
Another all-time crowd favourite, the Green Tea Seed Skin is a gentle yet hydrating toner that helps to smoothen the skin and strengthen its natural moisture barrier. Gently apply onto the face and neck after cleansing for a refreshing and supple glow!
This multi-purpose portable rollerball packs a punch, and is chock full of antioxidants to help relieve and depuff your tired eyes anytime you need. Its metal ball applicator helps to enhance the cooling sensation when used – simply massage gently around the eye contour to relieve and relax your tired eyes, or other areas of your face you want to revitalize. It’s the perfect item to throw in your bag for a convenient midday pick-me-up!
As the second most popular line after the Green Tea series, Innisfree’s Jeju Volcanic Line is most effective for sebum control, minimizing pores and exfoliating dead skin. If you tend towards an oily/combination skin type, these may be the products for you.
5. Innisfree Super Volcanic Clay Mask ($20)
This cult favourite mask has a clay-like texture as its name suggests, and contains super volcanic clusters that help to absorb excess sebum without stripping your skin overly dry. It also helps to deep clean, unclog and tighten your pores, leaving them squeaky clean – just don’t forget to moisturise after!
This volcanic mousse mask offers similar deep-cleansing benefits as the original clay mask, just in a creamier and lighter texture that does not dry up as easily. What’s more, this soothing mask is formulated with AHA and BHA to exfoliate dead skin cells, leaving your skin clean and smooth in no time. After leaving the mask on for 15 to 20 minutes, rinse it off with lukewarm water and voila, your skin will feel soft and squeaky-clean!
For those of you who are looking for clay masks that provide specific benefits such as whitening, brightening or moisturising, you may want to check out their Super Volcanic Colour Clay Line as well, which has a different coloured mask curated specifically for each function!
Innisfree’s Jeju Orchid Line is one of the most popular anti-aging skincare lines in the Korean beauty realm, which features the elixir of Jeju Orchids known for their vitality and resilience in surviving through the harsh Korean winter season. Infused with other ingredients such as hyaluronic acid from Jeju green beans, this line helps to combat signs of ageing and wrinkles by improving the skin’s elasticity, smoothness and brightness.
7. Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream ($43)
With a slightly thicker consistency, this makes the perfect night cream to add on to your skincare routine. In addition to anti-aging benefits such as smoothing wrinkles, brightening and nourishing the skin deeply, it also absorbs into the skin rather quickly for such a rich cream product – meaning you won’t have to worry about waking up with a greasy face the next morning!
This eye cream has been highly raved about by many (including Korean Youtuber Joan Kim), and is loved for its rich and luxurious consistency that delivers intense moisture and targets fine lines around the eye area. Use this in conjunction with the Jeju Orchid Enriched Cream to firm and smoothen the skin, and achieve that youthful glow!
The Innisfree Bija line is designed to keep those pesky blemishes away! Featuring bija oil which has antibacterial properties, these products will help to soothe troubled skin and treat blemishes while helping to prevent future breakouts.
9. Innisfree Bija Cica Balm ($35)
Dubbed as the #Eraserbalm, this will be your go-to balm for emergency blemish and spot treatments! Infused with cica and bija seed oil, it also helps to effectively strengthen your skin’s protective barrier against bacteria and improve skin texture.
10. Innisfree Bija Trouble Mask ($19)
Add this to your skincare routine once or twice a week to soothe any signs of troubled skin – this formula contains green calamine in addition to bija oil, which helps to calm sensitive skin and help in acne prevention. Simply massage onto face and leave on for 15 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water, blemishes begone!
11. Innisfree Bija Cica Mask ($5.50)
While some may deem the price tag to be on the steeper side for a single mask, you’ll definitely be getting your money’s worth as this mask is drenched in essence that contains high-purity Centella asiatica 4X (3.6 times more powerful than Bija Cica Balm!) that helps rebuild your skin barrier and improve overall skin condition – a real rejuvenating treat to pamper your skin with every once in a while.
Hallabong, also known as Jeju citrus, is a type of sweet and seedless mandarin orange rich in Vitamin C that can be found growing in Jeju during the winter months. This brightening line stars Hallabong peel extract (obtained through ultrasonic extraction) and 3 other vitamin derivatives (Vit C, B3 and B5), which work together to help target blemishes, dark spots and pores, and brighten up your overall complexion.
Brightening Pore Facial Cleanser is a moisturising daily foam cleanser that contains Hallabong bark extract, which helps to improve skin elasticity and leaves your skin feeling hydrated after use. This works great as a gentle morning cleanser, but do remember to layer on the SPF after use (extremely important especially when you apply Vit C products in the morning) so as to protect your skin and prevent sunburns when you are exposed to direct sunlight.
13. Innisfree Brightening Pore Sleeping Mask ($31)
This soothing yet nourishing sleep mask helps to build your skin’s protective barrier overnight, and leaves your skin looking smoother and more radiant after washing off the next morning. The active ingredients found in Hallabong peel extract also help to improve firmness and overall skin texture. As mentioned for the previous product, don’t forget the SPF after!
14. Innisfree No Sebum Mineral Powder ($10)
This is one of Innisfree’s top-selling products, and its name says it all! If you are constantly worried about your skin being overly shiny after you step out of the house, fret no more. With this miracle powder in a compact size and even a sponge for added convenience, you can bring this gem of a product anywhere along with you, for touch-ups whenever and wherever (especially the T-zone). It’ll keep your skin and makeup looking matte and fresh all day!
15. Innisfree Vivid Cotton Ink ($15)
This long-lasting lip ink is so light (hence cotton), you won’t even feel it on your lips! Dab it in the centre of your lips and smudge it out for the tinted lip look, or apply it on fully to achieve a vibrant and opaque wash of colour. The best part: it’ll stay looking matte all day but won’t dry your lips out!
16. Innisfree My Concealer Wide Cover ($16)
Innisfree’s My Concealer range has quickly become a crowd favourite since its launch, and a great product to try if you’re exploring the range for the first time would be the Wide Cover concealer. It specifically targets the under eye area but is also versatile enough to be used on the rest of the face, and provides effective coverage with a natural skin-like finish. You’ll be going back for seconds!
Don’t neglect sunscreen in your skincare routine, it really is one of the most important steps. Innisfree’s Intensive Long Lasting Sunscreen boasts a SPF50+ waterproof formula that is non-sticky and long-lasting, and even contains centella and green tea extract that provide hydrating benefits. Best of all (to us), it doesn’t have that strong sunscreen scent or white cast that typical sunscreens tend to have – now there’s no excuse not to add this into your daily routine!
Besides makeup and skincare products, Innisfree also has products that help you care for your hair. If you suffer from frizzy and dry hair from constantly being in humid weather, we’ll recommend giving this Camellia Essential Hair Treatment a go! Made with seven kinds of vegetable oils (including Jeju camellia oil), this treatment gel promises to prevent moisture loss from hair to give you bouncy and voluminous hair, sans the typical sticky feeling most hair treatment oils have.
Keep your hands soft and moisturized (especially now that we’ve been washing our hands a lot more frequently) with Innisfree’s Jeju life perfumed hand cream, that makes your hands smell and feel good without any sticky residue. They have a wide range of scents to choose from, but we would definitely recommend Peach for something sweet and subtle!
