10 Best Innisfree Products Review: For Oily, Dry, Combination Skin

Innisfree Products

Korean beauty products have swept the beauty world with their unique and effective products. You name a problem, they have a solution. While I was intrigued by the popularity of those products, I was still skeptical about trying them out on my breakout-prone skin. But then being an avid skincare enthusiast I had to get my hands on them. I slowly started experimenting with sheet masks, and wash-off masks, and now my skincare stash is loaded with Innisfree products. What I love about them the most is, that they are so generous with samples and trail kits, which makes it easy to assess if the products suit our skin before splurging on them.

Coming to the Brand in Focus, Innisfree claims to be one of the first all-natural cosmetics brands in South Korea bringing nature’s natural benefits from Jeju Island. Innisfree is an eco-friendly brand and has a wide range of products catering to different skin needs. This post will feature products that I have tried so far and my personal experience with them. This is going to be a super detailed post, so grab your cup of coffee before going ahead or just skip to the quick reviews in the table of contents tab.

Innisfree Products Review

1. Innisfree Aloe Revital Soothing Gel

Innisfree Aloe Revital Soothing Gel Review

Product Type: It is an aloe vera gel containing 93% Jeju Aloe Vera Leaf Extract, along with Madecassoside, an amazing skin-calming ingredient, and Green Tea Extract, which is rich in antioxidants.

Suitable For: All Skin Types.

Ingredients: For ingredients & texture shots, check out the full review post of the Innisfree Aloe Revital Soothing Gel.

Fragrance: Fragrance-Free.

Additional Info: It is free of alcohol, parabens, artificial colorants, fragrances, mineral oil, urea, and other harmful chemicals.

My Experience:

I wonder why this isn’t as popular as the other aloe vera gels in the market. This is one of the Best Aloe Vera Gels that I have ever used. It not only has impressive ingredients, but it also has a great formula as well. I mean this aloe gel doesn’t sit on top of the skin forming a film/making the skin stretchy, rather it sinks in beautifully and hydrates the skin from within. It gives a soft matte skin and will suit all skin types.

I use this as my daily moisturizer on hot humid days when even one layer of skincare makes my skin an oil factory. I also use this mixed with my oils, as a face mask, mixed with DIY Face Mask, as an aftershave, and also for my hair masks. I only have raves for this aloe vera. If you are into aloe vera gels, I urge you to get this one. You get a whopping 300 ml tube for such good pricing and quality. Highly Recommended.

2. Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum

Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum

Product Type: It’s a nourishing serum that delivers moisture to dehydrated skin and imparts a soft, glowing complexion.

Suitable For: Normal, Combination, Dry & Dehydrated Skin.

Ingredients: For ingredients & texture shots, check out the full review post of the Green Tea Seed Serum.

Fragrance: Strong citrus scent, that’s headache-inducing to me.

Additional Info: Contains Alcohol, high up in the ingredient list.

My Experience:

This is Innisfree’s Best-Selling Product. I have mixed feelings about this product. It’s a semi-thick liquid serum that feels sticky upon application. However, it does dry down to a smooth dewy finish and feels light and comfortable on the skin. It’s super hydrating & nourishing and I wake up with plump, supple skin whenever I use this. However, if I use this serum for more than three days continuously, I tend to get tiny bumps and whiteheads. So I had to give it a break in between whilst using this product. I assume it’s because of the fragrance in it since I don’t see any acne-triggering ingredients. The price point may look expensive, but one bottle will easily last 6 months.


In terms of results, it’s not a miracle product. I can tell that it’s a nice hydrator that plumps up the skin. But that is all! The overpowering fragrance is a major turn-off for me and I don’t see myself repurchasing this.

Rating: 3.5/5.

3. Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

Product Type: Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is a clarifying clay mask that deeply cleanses the pores and reveals brighter skin.

Suitable For: Oily Skin Types. Dry Skin Types can try this too.

Ingredients: Water, Butylene Glycol, Titanium Dioxide, Silica, Glycerin, Caprylic/​Capric Triglyceride, Trehalose, Volcanic Ash, Cetearyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Glyceryl Stearate, Bentonite, Zinc Oxide Polysorbate 60, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, Orchid Extract, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Cryptomeria Japonica Leaf Extract, Bambusa Vulgaris Extract, Theobroma Cacao Extract, Kaolin, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, Pvp, Dextrin, Peg-100 Stearate, Sorbitan Stearate, Cellulose Gum, Xanthan Gum, Lactic Acid, Tetrasodium Pyrophosphate, Disodium Edta, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Iron Oxide.

Fragrance: The fragrance is nice and subtle and not at all overwhelming compared to other Innisfree Products.

Additional Info: Free of Alcohol, Fragrance & Essential Oils.

My Experience:

I love this! This clay-based mask is perfect for my oily skin. It mildly exfoliates, deeply cleanses the pores, and controls excess sebum production.

The mask has a grey-colored thick texture which can be hard to spread. But applying the mask on damp skin makes everything easier. It starts drying as soon as applied and it completely dries in less than 10 minutes. I then proceed to moisten my skin and gently scrub away the mask as I am rinsing the mask. The mask gives a cooling sensation to the skin while washing and post-pat drying the skin as well. I haven’t faced any irritations or allergic reactions due to this mask. 90% of the ready-to-use masks make my skin go red. This wasn’t like that.

My skin felt fresh, clean, and clear. It didn’t make my skin feel overly dry or stretchy. The effect of the mask is majorly seen after a few hours of removal. It enhances my skin tone a bit and makes my pores appear smaller. It was a great detoxifying mask and is considered one of the best face masks.

Rating: 4.5/5.

4. Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream

Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream

Product Type: Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream is a rich, anti-aging cream with Orchid Exlir, a superior anti-oxidant from the Jeju Orchids.

Suitable For: Combination, Dry & Dehydrated Skin. Oily Skin types can be used in winter.

Ingredients: For ingredients & texture shots, check out the full review post of the Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream.

Fragrance: Has a synthetic cosmetic fragrance, but it’s not very overpowering like the Green Tea Range.

Additional Info: Contains silicones.

My Experience:

This is a product that I thought would not work for my skin. But surprisingly this worked really well. I used this during the winters when my skin was craving some serious moisture. The Orchid Cream has a gel-cream consistency with a smooth velvety texture. It gives a balmy feel when applied and takes a while to get absorbed completely. But once absorbed, skin feels comfortable and no greasiness or oiliness remains. It results in silicone-smooth, well-moisturized skin.

I used this as a night cream and my skin would be so soft and plumped up the next morning. It also significantly reduced the dullness and tackled dryness giving a healthy skin. It is a perfect winter moisturizer to relieve tired, dull, and dry skin. I liked this product.

Rating: 4.2/5.

5. Innisfree Bija Trouble Facial Foam

Innisfree Bija Trouble Facial Foam Review

Product Type: Infused with Bija Seed Oil and Salicylic Acid, this is a deep cleansing face wash for acne-prone and troubled skin.

Suitable For: Oily, Acne Prone, Blemish-Prone Skin. Not for Dry & Sensitive Skin.

Ingredients: For ingredients & texture shots, check out the full review post of the Innisfree Bija Trouble Facial Foam.

Fragrance: Refreshing menthol scent.

My Experience:

It’s a thick, cream-based foam cleanser. It foams up abundantly with a tiny doll-up of the product and gives a nice cleansing action. The salicylic acid-based face wash cleans up the skin thoroughly giving a squeaky clean skin. It unclogs and purifies the pores without drying out the skin too much. This is not a gentle wash but makes a great second cleanser. This is one of those instant brightening face wash that removes dullness and awakens lifeless skin. It didn’t irritate my active acne but soothe them.

Overall, it’s a refreshing brightening cleanser that’s great for regulating excess sebum production and acne control. Considering the quantity vs price, this is a budget-friendly face wash as well.

Rating: 4/5

6. Innisfree It’s Real Squeeze Sheet Mask

Product Type: Innisfree My Real Squeeze Sheet Masks are nourishing sheet masks infused with freshly squeezed ingredients using the ‘Cold Brew Squeeze Process” to provide maximum skin benefits.

Suitable For: Depends on the variant. Mentioned on the packaging of each.

Ingredients: Varies for each one. Most of them contain alcohol and fragrance.

Additional Info:

  • Comes in three formulations water, essence, and cream.
  • The sheet mask is made of a durable cellulose sheet made from eucalyptus fibers that adhere to the skin well and deliver the benefits of the essence more efficiently.
  • The fitting is ok on my oval-shaped face.

My Experience:

Innisfree Sheet Masks are considered as one of the most affordable and effective sheet masks in the market.

I use a sheet mask in my PM routine on freshly cleaned, pat-dried skin. Most days, I do not follow up with a moisturizer, since the masks are mostly moisturizing by themselves. I tend to leave it on the skin anywhere between 20 to 40 minutes.

  1. Green Tea: Refreshing Watery type. It’s a standard moisturizing mask that leaves skin moisturized. I found it ok.
  2. Tea Tree: Refreshing Watery type. Good for breakouts and adds a bit of glow to the skin.
  3. Rose: Refreshing Watery type. Smells nice and is hydrating. No major effects. Great for a calming pampering session.
  4. Acai Berry: Luxurious Cream type. Intensely moisturizing. Great for dry skin and winters. I found it a bit heavy on my oily skin.
  5. Lime: Revitalizing Essence Type. Very refreshing and cooling on the skin. Has a nice citrus scent. Visibly brightens skin and hydrates well. I liked it.
  6. Rice: Luxurious Cream Type. Great for dry skin types. It’s soothing, moisturizing, and brightening. Most popular among all. I didn’t like its fragrance.
  7. Strawberry: Revitalizing Essence type. Very hydrating and gives dewy skin. Feels a bit too sticky for my liking post usage.
  8. Aloe: Revitalizing Essence Type. Yet another soothing and moisturizing mask. Didn’t find it extraordinary.
  9. Pomegranate: Refreshing Water Type. Loved this. Brightens and Plumps up the skin. Great for oily skin types.
  10. Cucumber: Revitalizing Essence Type. Nothing great.

Overall, these are good hydrating sheet masks compared to other brands. It’s often available on Buy 5 to Get 5 Free. If you are into sheet masks, get these.

7. Innisfree Capsule Recipe Packs

Innisfree Capsule Recipe Packs

Product Type: Innisfree Capsule Recipe Packs are face masks that come in cute little capsule tubs of 4 to 6 usages. It’s majorly categorized as Sleeping Packs and Wash Off Packs, each infused with specific ingredients targeted for specific skin concerns.

Suitable For: Depends on the variant.

My Experience:

Green Tea Sleeping Pack:

I used this in my nighttime routine after cleansing and toning. I skipped a moisturizer whilst using this pack to test its effectiveness. The Green Tea Capsule Recipe Pack is a milky white, semi-thick gel with a faint green tea scent. The mask spreads fairly well and requires a good massage to get absorbed into the skin completely. It has an initial sticky feel which subsides as time goes on.

The pack is highly moisturizing and treats dryness instantly. The masks brought a glow to my skin and balanced it with proper moisture and hydration. I loved the results of this sleeping pack. It visibly brightened my skin after using it for straight 5 days.

Volcanic Clay Wash-Off:

This is a wash-off mask with a semi-dry clay pack. It is quite thick so I had to mix a little bit of water/rose water or apply it on a wet face for easier spreadability. I apply the mask to a clean face and let it dry for about 10 to 15 minutes. Since this is clay-based, it dries faster. I try to remove it before it completely dries to avoid post-cleansing dryness. I use a wet sponge to remove the mask and then rinse my face with normal tap water. I pat dry my skin gently.

Results? Despite being a clay pack, this doesn’t dry out my skin. This pack gives a tightening effect but without dryness. It also reduced tiny bumps significantly. Whenever I use this pack, my skin feels a lot fresher, smoother, softer, and tighter. This is a good face mask that gives satisfying results. I would recommend oily skin types to have this product handy.

Rating: 4.7/5.

8. Innisfree Black Green Tea Mask

Innisfree Black Green Tea Mask

Product Type: Innisfree Black Green Tea Mask is a soothing and hydrating gel mask infused with anti-oxidant-rich Jeju Black Green Tea.

Suitable For: All Skin Types. Great for Dehydrated Skin.

Ingredients: For ingredients & texture shots, check out the full review post of the Innisfree Black Green Tea Mask.

Fragrance: It’s mildly scented with a mix of citrus & floral notes.

Additional Info: This has Jeju Green Tea Leaves that have been fermented and matured for 100 days. Black Green Tea is known to be a great anti-oxidant providing deep moisture and nourishment to the skin. The product is Paraben & Silicone Free as well.

My Experience:

It’s an amber-brown, gel-based mask, infused with lots of black green tea leaves. These are smooth particles and do not hinder the application. I usually apply a generous layer of the mask on my damp skin and let it sit for 15-20 minutes. And then use a wet sponge to remove the mask. If I directly splash water and rinse the mask, it becomes a tedious task as it has a slipperiness and requires lots of water to remove. The mask makes my skin look healthy and supple. It is not drying, rather it’s very hydrating and leaves the skin refreshed and soft to touch. This is a good revitalizing face mask with a nice citrus fragrance that awakens my dull tired face.

I loved using this face mask for its soothing and non-drying effect. But considering the Price vs Effectiveness, this product is not worth investing in. It’s an expensive hydrating face mask!

9. Innisfree Green Tea Sleeping Pack

Innisfree Green Tea Sleeping Pack

Product Type: It’s an overnight sleeping mask that’s infused with amino acids-rich Green Tea Extracts to boost moisture and Niacinamide to brighten skin tone.

Suitable For: Oily, Combination, Normal Skin Types.

Ingredients: Green Tea Extract, Propanediol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Glycerin, Cyclohexasiloxane, Dimethicone, Betaine, Niacinamide, Tangerine Peel Extract, Orchid Extract, Camellia Leaf Extract, Prickly Pear Extract, Verbena Extract, Orange Extract, Corn Starch, Grapefruit Extract, Tangerine Extract, Tocopheryl Acetate, Dimethicone/​Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Dimethiconol, Lactose, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Sucrose, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/​VP Copolymer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Polysorbate 20, Carbomer, Tromethamine, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance

Fragrance: Just like the other green tea range products, this is heavily scented too. The scent is refreshing but certainly strong for sensitive noses.

Additional Info: Alcohol-Free.

My Experience:

The Innisfree Green Tea Sleeping Pack is a gel-based product with tiny little white beads. With gentle massage, the beads get dissolved completely adding a thin film of moisture onto the skin. The sleeping pack does not have any sticky feel and is quite lightweight on the skin. I leave it overnight and while rinsing my face the next morning, there’s this silicone slipperiness. The sleeping mask acts as a nice occlusive to lock in the goodness of my toner & serum. With regular use, I found my skin to be a lot clearer, brighter, and even-toned. It even helped my acne marks to fade away slightly.

Overall, my experience with this sleeping mask was pretty good. I liked the formula as it was light and suitable for my oily skin. This neither made my skin oily nor gave me breakouts.

10. Innisfree Green Tea Mineral Mist

Innisfree Green Tea Mineral Mist

Product Type: It’s a rejuvenating mineral mist infused with Green Tea to Provide instant freshness and radiance to the skin.

Suitable For: Dry & Dehydrated, Non-Sensitive Skin.

Ingredients: Water/​Aqua/​Eau, Propanediol, Butylene Glycol, Caprylic/​Capric Triglyceride, 1,2-Hexanediol, PPG-13-Decyltetradeceth-24, Glyceryl Caprylate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance/​Parfum, Menthoxypropanediol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Panthenol

Fragrance: It’s heavily scented with high notes of green tea. It’s on the sweeter side, thankfully it does not intensify and fades away a couple of minutes later. But the scent can be bothering for people with sensitive noses. The entire Green Tea Range has a similar strong fragrance.

Additional Info: The mist doesn’t spray uniformly and I get uneven big and small droplets on my face. Although it sprays softly on the skin and doesn’t spritz sharply like some toner sprays.

My Experience:

The Green Tea Mineral Mist is not only hydrating but very moisturizing as well. It gives an overdose of moisture to my oily skin. Whenever I use this Mineral Mist, I tend to layer up with lighter products. This is a multi-use mist that can be used after cleansing in place of toner or on top of your makeup to give a dewy effect or throughout the day to keep you refreshed.

I prefer to use this only on my clean face, after cleansing and replacing my toner. It gives a temporary cooling effect and calms down the skin. It is super refreshing and light on the skin. However, on some days, I didn’t enjoy it much as it was too moisturizing for me. It’s a decent product but not a must-have.

Similar One Brand Reviews:

Is Innisfree a Good Brand?

(-) Innisfree is not all-natural as claimed! It is seen from the ingredient list that it contains certain synthetic preservatives like Phenoxyethanol, Disodium EDTA, artificial fragrances and some Innisfree Products do contain Alcohol.

However, if you compare with some herbal brands that claim to have aloe vera extract in it and have .001 percentages in them (Biotique?), then Innisfree is much much better as most of the key natural ingredients amount to the major components of the product.

For example, Innisfree Green Tea Seed Serum contains 75.9% of Green Tea Extract and Innisfree Black Green Tea Mask has 55% of Black Green Tea, which I think is not bad. Also, my views on everything Natural have changed over the years, so I am completely fine with safe chemicals in skincare products. Innisfree Products may not be 100% Natural but are free from parabens and other toxic chemicals.

(-) The Speculation on whether the products are tested on animals. Innisfree does not state explicitly that they are Cruelty-Free. So I assume Innisfree is Not Cruelty-Free. It is not vegan-friendly as well.

(-) Most Innisfree Products contain synthetic fragrances added. They are heavily scented, some of which are overpowering that it might be a problem for sensitive and breakout-prone skin types.

(+) The packaging of all Innisfree Products is were very attractive and eye candy. The color coding of each range is were an added advantage. All products from the Green Tea Range are were Green, the Volcanic Range is were Brown, the Pomegranate Range red, and so on.

(Update 2024: Now they have rebranded with all whites – I guess in notion to give a minimalistic aesthetic look – which sadly doesn’t look appealing. Innisfree was all about beautiful colored packaging and I hate the new bland look)

(-) But, most of their creams come in a tub form which might be unhygienic to dip your fingers for each use, unless you use a spatula. They don’t usually come with a spatula.

(+) Price point. It’s not that bad actually. Innisfree is surely not a budget-friendly brand but is definitely within reach. All Korean brands I’ve come across are priced in the same range, at least here in India, so it’s not a surprise for me, and most products last at least 2 to 4 months easily.
