Innisfree Green Tea Pure Cleansing Oil Review

This mild, easily washable cleansing oil contained with Jeju organic green tea moisturizing, antioxidant ingredients softly removes point makeup and gives an easy finish just by washing off with water.

I’ve used a product from their Green Tea line before and I thought it was alright. I wasn’t really fond of the smell which I thought smelled a bit like men’s deodorant instead of a refreshing scent that I was expecting. I wanted to get a bottle of cleansing oil and originally I wanted to try the apple one but then I saw the eco-friendly packaging for the Green Tea line.

The Green Tea line is made with 100% organic green tea from Jeju Island. The selling point for me though was that they sell refills! I think Innisfree is moving towards a greener image because they have since added refills for their apple and olive cleansing oils. They’ve also changed the packaging for the refill bag too! The original bottle retails for 16,000₩ whereas the refill is priced at 11,000₩ both with 150mL.

To use this I massage this onto dry skin. Slowly I add a bit of water to my fingers and rub it onto face to emulsify the oil. Afterwards I rinse my face and wash it with a cleanser to remove the oil and makeup.

I really like this cleansing oil. It removes all my makeup in one go. I don’t need to use an eye makeup remover before using this. People that have trouble removing Majolica Majorca mascara (which is known to be hard to remove) don’t need to buy the remover MM makes for their mascaras.

The smell is something I guess I got used to. I will probably buy the apple cleansing oil to see if there’s a difference since they have refills now too. Still I would recommend this one to anyone looking for a good cleansing oil.

  1. Thank you for your review! I just got my first bottle of the Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Oil. I am fairly new to cleansing oils and am impressed with how little product is needed to clean and remove makeup. I have dry, sensitive skin and love the silky texture of the oil. It’s not heavy like Laventine Olive Forte or DHC Deep Cleansing Oil (this is lighter than the Laventine). I’ve also tried Josie Maran Argan Cleansing Oil but I think the grapefruit peel is bothering my skin. So, I wanted to some of the Asian cleansing oils to see if there would be a difference. I’ve tried nature Republic Forest Garden Chamomile Cleansing Oil and like that too.

    1. Yeah I quite liked this one, but I did find it a bit heavier. I double cleanse though so it wasn’t a problem for me. Recently I’ve been using Kose Softymo Speedy Cleansing Oil, which is also an Asian cleansing oil. I actually like this one a lot more than the Innisfree one! But since you have drier skin, Innisfree might be better for you. However, Kose’s Softymo is a lot easier to wash off than Innisfree’s in my opinion and after I wash it off, my face feels clean enough that I sometimes I forget to do a double cleanse. Definitely try Kose’s out too if you’re looking for a light, gentle cleansing oil ::^^::!
