I didn’t plan on making many posts about skincare. My skin isn’t “amazing” and my skincare routine is extremely basic:
1. Cetaphil facial wash
2. Custom made vinegar toner
3. St Ives moisturizer (just regular lotion really, until I find something different)
Occasionally I’ll do a facial mask made from natural food items.
I refuse to test out any more skincare brands sold in the U.S.A though. Every time I’ve “tested” a new facial cleanser my face has broken out like it’s nobody’s business, and I really just don’t have time for that!!
I don’t care if it’s going through a “purging phase” or not, I simply refuse. So as you can imagine, like many other people, I’ve tested out many different brands. While I no longer have acne (occasionally I’ll get a bump here or there but that doesn’t bother me), I still have dark marks so my skin overall just doesn’t look how I’d like for it.
I say all that to say:
Since I’m working on getting my skin on point, I might as well share what works for me and review these new products I try out.
Today, I’ll be talking about one of my purchases from Korea. It’s bestseller Innisfree: The Green Tea Seed Serum.
I was a little iffy about the size of the bottle (80 mL) for the price I was paying,
so hopefully I didn’t waste my money.
This is the website to learn more about the brand: http://www.innisfree.co.kr/global/en/eng_main.jsp

Where to buy: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0060DZXW6/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (I’m sure you can also find on eBay or online Korean skincare/beauty sites)
Price: $29.95 (I’ve also seen it go for $23 somewhere else, but the shipping wasn’t free so you’ll end up paying about the same as I did if not more! )
Toodles! I’m off to go and try it now! ;)
