I’ve always been interested in trying Innisfree products because of the hype of their 5 free claim. I really like how this brand seems to really focus on including natural products. Originally I wanted to try the Jeju Volcanic Pore Line, but decided that I wanted to branch out into using products like green tea and tea tree because they’re supposed to be great for blemished skin.
The product is “enriched with squeezed green tea from the Jeju island to deliver abundant moisture and nourishment deep into your skin.” This product also claims that it is “the cleansing foam that shields the moisture of the skin with the smooth lather that contains freshly squeezed Jeju green tea.”

Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Foam Review:
I was actually really disappointed with this cleanser. It seemed to strip my skin and that really made me upset. I usually use the Cosrx Low pH Good Morning Gel Cleanser and there is a huge difference with how my skin feels using that cleanser and using this Innisfree cleanser.
I guess since my skin is oily and acne-prone, a gel cleanser and a foam cleanser have different feelings. I feel that the Innisfree foam cleanser cleans my skin better, but I don’t like the feeling after washing off the cleanser. It really looks like I just put a bunch of hand soap and lathered that on my face.
However, the smell is quite lovely. I can’t put my finger on it but it smells almost rose like and very fresh. I asked my younger sister what it smelled like and she said cucumber. So just really a fresh smell. I never really smell it when it’s lathered and it’s very light, not overpowering at all.
I will definitely not repurchase this cleanser. Not because it’s awful, but I just really don’t like it. If I were to repurchase this, I recommend it to people with normal skin, which is really what this product is targeted for (I think).
Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Foam would be too stripping for people with dry skin and it seems to not be quite that effective for oily skin except that it cleans the skin really well and leaves it completely stripped of everything. I might try to Green Tea Balancing Foam Cleanser by them, which I believe is targeted to people with combination skin. And I might look into getting the Nooni Whip Maker to accompany the rest of the tube of the cleanser I have, to make it more foamy (as it feels like I’m just putting hand soap on my face using this cleanser).
