Spotlight | Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Skin.

I have a growing fondness for green tea-infused skincare products, which stemmed mainly from my continued use of Innisfree's Green Tea Mineral Mist. I love this product so much that I decided to try the other products from Innisfree's Green Tea line and incorporate them into my daily skincare routine, starting with the Green Tea Balancing Skin.
Innisfree Green Tea Balancing Skin.
It's actually a toner, made with green tea and green tea seeds from Jeju Island. It's rich in minerals and amino acids that give nourishment to the skin and keep it moisturized. It also contains betaine, a natural moisturizing agent derived from amino acids, which provides intense moisture for combination skin to restore its natural balance.
Balancing = for normal to combination skin.
And much like any other Innisfree product, this toner is made with organic ingredients, and free from these five harmful ingredients - parabens, mineral oil, synthetic colorants, animal material, and imidazolidinyl urea, an antimicrobial preservative that acts as a formaldehyde releaser.
Product description at the back of the box.
It's also packed in an eco-friendly box, another trademark packaging of Innisfree.
Hangul text on the side panels.
As for the toner itself, it comes in a 200 mL twist-top bottle. Nothing fancy with its packaging, but I do find the debossed text on the bottle cap quite pretty. 
Twist-top bottle.
This toner, however, has a pretty unusual texture. It has a bit of viscosity to it, but it's neither sticky like gel-type toners, nor is it watery like most liquid toners. To apply, simply pour an adequate amount on your palm (two to three drops will suffice), and pat it on your face. No need for cotton pads!
Has a fairly wide opening on the bottle.
I love how this toner has this sort-of cooling effect on the skin. It's easily absorbed, and does not leave any sticky residues behind. It smells wonderful, too! Its scent is a mixture of green tea and zesty citrus notes, the kind that perks you up on lazy Monday mornings. 
Can you see the toner on the palm of my hand?
In terms of effectiveness, this toner does a good job of moisturizing my skin and keeping those pores and blackheads at bay. I started using this product two months ago while I was still in Korea, and my husband would compliment me every so often that I need not put on makeup since my bare skin looks healthy and glowing. I guess it's the antioxidants working wonders for my skin?
Three different lines for different skin types.
Well, if that's the case, then I certainly got my 14000 won's worth. I wouldn't mind spending a few more bucks for the rest of the products in the Green Tea Balancing line if it means having healthy, glowing skin. :)

Really ? no need for cotton pads? that's cool. I'm also an Innisfree user but never try this toner, thanks for sharing ^^

I love green tea infused beauty care products and this sounds like a total find! I'm partial to citrus scents too and I really like the look of the consistency too. I am going to check out this line.

Green tea is always nice for the skin, I'm glad there's a toner that uses it as a main ingredient. I think this is awesome and perfect for the weather!

The Innis Green tea sounds like a great product for the skin and probably also does great in warmer conditions! :)

I have heard that Green tea is so good for skin care & having a product that relates to is awesome. Innisfree's is pretty new for me, but sounds worth trying it out!
