Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you would have noticed that Korean beauty products have pretty much taken the world by storm- and that among those in the forefront is Innisfree.
A popular eco-friendly company that is made all the more attractive thanks to its reasonable prices, Innisfree has easily wormed its way to my list of favourite beauty brands. Which isn’t very easy, mind, since I tend to only like one product from any single brand and call it a day. But here we are.
So of course, when I was gifted with a generous amount of samples by Innisfree, my fondness for them grew all the more. Which prompted me to type up this blog post.
Today, I’ll be reviewing the Apple Seed Deep Cleansing Foam (RM39.31) from the Apple Seed Cleansing Kit Series.
What is it?
Enriched with “the vitality of apple seeds”, this Innisfree foam cleanser is and looks like, despite its marketing jargon, a pretty standard cleanser. Which is expected, given the fact that cleansers aren’t products that are supposed to be on your face for a long period of time. It’s a cleanse-and-rinse sort of deal, as you should know.
That being said, that doesn’t mean you can just buy any old cleanser off the rack. Effectiveness differs from product to product, and everyone’s skin is different. There is just no one-size-fits-all solution here.
But I digress.
For more information regarding the Apple Seed Deep Cleansing Foam, the official website states it is supposed to do the following:
- The dense and abundant lather helps completely and delicately cleanse any makeup residue and impurities in the pores
- The formulation with apple extract and apple seed oil smoothens out flaky dead skin cells to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy
- Fresh apple fragrance helps you enjoy a refreshing cleansing time
Pretty standard, right? Right.
What is it like?
The cleanser comes in a white, creamy texture that gives off a clean, artificial scent with a hint of apple. Now that I’m getting used to using scented products, I can’t say that I mind it all that much. Still not fond of them, but this one is not overwhelming, at the very least.
As for its performance, this cleanser foams up easily and is able to remove oil and dirt from my face without so much as a fuss. To place emphasis on how well it cleans, my cotton pad catches next to no yellow residue whenever I tone afterwards.
And best of all? This Apple Seed product doesn’t leave behind a tight sensation on my skin. It’s pretty much all a girl can ask for from a cleanser.
The main colours incorporated into the design are smooth white and bright green, which grants a young, fresh impression at first glance.
It’s nothing extraordinary, but its aesthetic minimalist appeal does not matter as much as its functionality, which again, does the job. That creamy cleanser is just one squeeze away, and the cap need only be snapped close once you’re done with it.
A pleasant experience; it’s nice to use a product that does exactly what it says it does. Despite having used it several times, I’ve not experienced any tightness or dryness whatsoever. I’d even go as far as to say it helped with keeping my face oil-free for the most part of the day- and I have very greasy skin.
Quite unlike the nightmare that was the Hado Labo cleanser I tried awhile ago.
However, I would like to add that because I have very oily skin, dry types should probably stay away from this.
Where can I find it?
