Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing Cream Review:
This cream, just like the same line’s cleansing foam, is exactly the same as the previous version, and only the package was updated. As you can see by the package, I have the previous version, but below I’ll post an image of the new version with comparisons for you.
Anyway, this cream, as the name says, aims to rebalance the skin. I really loved the Blueberry cleanser and I have high expectations for this cream too!
+ For all skin types.
+ Watery moisturizing cream, which helps to regain a proper pH balance of skin via blueberry’s powerful an antioxidant activity.

Innisfree Blueberry Rebalancing Cream Review:
(I borrowed the official Innisfree images for this very bad photoshop edit)
As I said, the collection was redesigned. The whole Super Food collection either was or will be redesigned in fact.
But the change in looks isn’t all that happened, along with the Green Tea Seed line each and every product became more expensive. Thanks a lot Innisfree.
Oh let’s increase the minimum wage. Okay. But also let’s increase the prices of everything. Then what’s the point really – sighs. But enough about politics.
This cream used to be 8.000krw (around 8USD) and now is 9500krw (9.5 USD) which is a very big increase in price for a single product. Nonetheless, the superfood line is still one of the most affordable in Innisfree.
The information on both the front and back of the package is also still the same. Low pH, rebalancing the oil-water content of the skin, 500mg of blueberry included, how to use, ingredients in Korean, 50ml.
If it’s like the cleanser change, then on the seal (the seal that you should remove to use the product, the one that makes stores take no returns) the new version should include the harvest batch for the blueberries.
This bottle is so simple! And clean, and effective, and soft enough that I could squeeze every last drop of this cream. Perfect design, seriously.
This old version didn’t have a place to write the opening date of the product, so I wrote it on the lid (as you can see) but I think the new version has a place to write it.
Another characteristic of this package is that it’s slightly transparent, you can at any point easily see how much product you have left.
But all my fangirling over this product ends here. It’s not a bad product at all, but it simply doesn’t match my skin. I’ll give you all the details below.
It’s a cream that has a perfect texture, melts and spreads like an angel touched it. It spreads with the feeling of a watery cream. It also absorbs really well, and you don’t need much at a time to cover the entire face!
It does have some smell, and it’s very light so most people should be fine with it. I can’t quite put my finger on it but it smells fresh and is pleasant enough, while also disappearing quickly enough.
It also was good for any sensitiveness my skin had while using it, and it did reduce the amount of sebum I produced during the day (I guess part of the rebalancing) while keeping me hydrated.
Then why doesn’t it match me? My skin is dehydrated (this cream takes care of that, it’s very hydrating) but it also needs moisture and it’s uh… well, my skin is aging.
This cream moisturizes enough on my T zone (oily) but otherwise my skin feels under moisturized, and in some instances it flaked a little, so if your skin needs moisture you should go for a richer cream.
An aging skin also needs nutrients, and things that focus on elasticity, which are usually found on heavier steps of the skin care routine (such as serums, lotions, and creams) because those ingredients give richness to the products.
To explain it in a simpler way:
This cream is light, hydrating, and moisturizing enough for skins that need lighter skin care (oily to normal skins) or for people who use moisturizing sun creams or balms after the cream.
But… it is pretty much for young skins.
I would say it would be perfect for my 20’s skin – combination with oily T zone, sensitive, with some acne, still with a lot of allergic reactions. The only part that this cream doesn’t match my skin for now at 30 really is the aging component.
If your skin matches my 20’s skin, then I think this cream may be really attractive for you!
If you’re like I am now… definitely skip it. For the right skin, I couldn’t recommend it more since it feels good and it’s affordable.
