Innisfree The Green Tea Seed Serum Review

Reviewing another bestselling Innisfree product in the world. Other couple of Innisfree's bestselling products that I reviewed are the Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam. You guys can read about it HERE and the Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask (review HERE).

"The green tea seed serum is awarded globally as best moist serum for 19 times!" photo taken from Innisfreeworld.

I received this green tea serum in Innisfree's Best Loved Collection pack which consists of the serum itself, the super volcanic pore clay mask and orchid enriched cream. The collection was gifted to me as a giveaway gift.

A moisturizing and nourishing serum containing eco-friendly Jeju fresh green tea and green tea seeds.

What it is
A moisturizing serum with organic Jeju green tea and green tea seeds that hydrate your skin from deep within! 

1. More moisture and freshness with 100% green tea. 
Rich in amino acids and minerals, green tea from Jeju's own green tea leaves hydrates your skin. 

2. Dual Moisture-Rising Technology™ derived from green tea and green tea seed oil 
The fresh green tea deeply hydrates your skin and the green tea seed oil creates a strong moisture barrier to keep your skin moisturized longer. 

3. The first thing to apply after a face wash! 
As the first skincare product you use, it helps hold moisture in your skin and prevents moisture loss. 

*Product suggestions for the 3 most common types of skin
- oily skin: The green tea fresh line
- combination skin: The green tea balancing line
- dry skin: The green tea moisture line
- special moisturizing and nourishing care line: The green tea seed line

How to use

Pump a dollop of the serum on your hand and apply it on your face and neck.

Hydrate and recharge your skin with Jeju green tea! 

Our green tea products' vitality and deep hydration are supplied by green tea extracts from the fields of Jeju island, renowned for its cleanliness and abundant plant life. Using these products will leave skin feeling smooth, supple, and deeply hydrated.

Full ingredients
The green Tea Extract (75.9%), Propanediol, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Ethanol, Glycerin, Betaine, The green Tea Seed Oil (208mg), Prickly Pear Extract, Orchid Extract, Tangerine Peel Extract, Camellia Leaf Extract, Citrus Aurantium Bergamia Extract, Grapefruit Extract, Orange Extract, Tangerine Extract, Bis-PEG-18 Methyl Ether Dimethyl Silane, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Cetearyl Olivate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Sorbitan Olivate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Cocoa Extract, Dextrin, Potassium Hydroxide, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance

What it doesn't have

5-free system : parabens, synthetic colorants, mineral oil, animal-originated ingredients, imdazolidinyl urea


The serum is clear, not runny, light weight, has a light nice green tea scent, absorbs nicely into the skin without leaving any oily nor greasy residues, it doesn't feel heavy.

My thoughts
The serum came in 5ml in the Best Loved Collection pack, the original size is 80ml. I only get to use it roughly around 2 weeks, I emptied the serum recently. I used it day and night with 2 pumps, applied only to targeted areas such as my cheeks and forehead.

Before I use this serum, I didn't know that the serum is best suitable for people with dry skin, while theres a line for oily skin, which is the green tea fresh line.

Anyway, my oily skin likes it, it didn't break me out. Since it is light weight and absorbs fully and quickly into the skin, it didn't make my skin oilier even during daytime. Hence my skin stays moisturized and hydrated. I can even layer another product on top of it. It is refreshing, gentle and softening too. I am pretty pleased with the serum. So glad to try it out!

My rating: 5/5

Will I purchase?
At the moment no since I prefer serums that have specialty for troubled skin(I know green tea can help with troubled skin too but I prefer a serum with a strong targeted concern) however I can see myself grabbing the serum when my skin is feeling dry.

Will I recommend?
Yes, it is an appropriate lightweight moisturizer for people with oily skin. Dry~normal skin especially may love this serum. I personally think that it suits all skin types. Except if you are sensitive to green tea.....

I swear to God that Purpletale's 5 Steps to Lovely Skin is one of the greatest mask inventions ever. Why? Because it is so convenient for travels when you are worried about bringing bulky full sized products that could possibly leak your luggage. Additionally, you can have more room to store new beauty products that you bought! If this not a convenient beauty product for beauty and travel lovers then I don't know what is, haha.

I carried out my PM skincare routine with Purpletale 5 Steps to Lovely Skin last night. Just a heads up, all products of the routine have similar light nice perfumey scent, it is Purpletale's trademark scent that I love to sniff so much, and all products are enough for one usage at a time.

1. Cleanse with Foam Cleanser
Cleanser is in white cream-like texture that foams well even with only the use of hands. it leaves my face feeling clean, not drying after wash, hence my face feels moisturized. I did some extraction after washing, all the gunks in pores are released so easily!!!

2. Treat with Ampoule
Has a clear texture that is not runny. Absorbs nicely and fully into skin with massage, no waiting needed. face feels soft afterwards.

3. Pamper with Sheet Mask
The sheetmask is a biocellulose mask!!!!! I love biocellulose mask because of its thin nature, non-slipping and has that second skin feel. It is the most THINNEST biocellulose mask I've ever used. Even the separators that 'trapped' the biocellulose mask in the middle was thin, the separators are made out of thin fabric material. the mask prior to using was folded nicely, so it was easy to unfold it. The fitting isn't a problem to me, it fits my face shape and contours accordingly. The biocellulose mask has a clear almost jelly-like essence, theres not much of its remaining essence inside the packet. Kept on 30 mins, dries matte with partial glow, skin feels supple. I feel saddened when I could not take a good selfie with the mask and The Beauty of You headband on. I have a bad lighting and phone selfie quality /cries. But anyway, I will show you guys a mask selfie with the biocellulose mask on when I use it for the second time.

4. Moisturize with Facial Cream
I didn't know which Purpletale cream this was and it turned out to be their Ode to Hydration Facial Cream! I wanted to try out this cream! The cream is rich but not too heavy, doesn't feel greasy nor heavy after application. I think that this kind of cream suits for day-time use too for oily skin. It spreads well and absorbs into the skin nicely. 

5. Nourish with Neck Cream
Love this one, the neck cream featured is their Once Upon A Neck Cream. I posted a full review on the neck cream HERE.

My skin feels so nice after implementing a PM skincare routine that consists of mostly Purpletale products. The next morning, my skin looked glowy(not in an oily way) and just nice~ no breakouts as well, yeay!

My Final thoughts
After trying out the 5 Steps to Lovely Skin, I would really love it if Purpletale come out with the full version of the cleanser and ampoule!!!! My skin and I love them so much. Pretty please, PT? I will be waiting and buying, haha. I also want to get the full size packaging of Ode to Hydration Facial Cream. I love the 5 Steps to Lovely Skin overall!!!

Pros +
- Travel-convenient
- Amazing products all in one, need I say more?

Cons -
- None!

Will I purchase?
Yes with no doubts!!!

Will I recommend?
Ofcourse. If you are looking to try out your first Purpletale product, the 5 Steps to Lovely Skin is the cheapest and a wonderful one. It kinda makes you want to invest in more PT products.

Where to buy?
You can purchase directly at Purpletale's official website at www.purpletale.com HERE is the direct product link. With a price of USD 7.99, the pricing is not bad considering that the routine comes with 5 different products and a biocellulose mask, biocellulose masks cost around USD 5 in average. PT offers free shipping for orders above USD 40 and ships to any countries that offer deliveries via UPS and FedEx. Reaching a minimum of USD 40 will be easy since most of their product prices are close to reaching the amount.

Thank you so much, Purpletale and thank you guys for reading!❤❤❤❤❤

Purple Tale Unboxing + Once Upon A Neck Cream Review

Friday, July 22, 2016

A week ago I received a lovely PR package from one of the brands that I have always been curious about, Purpletale. I discovered about brand when I first saw Ryanraroar's (Singaporean male beauty blogger) Instagram post about it a few months back. My curiosity of the brand developed since then, I just thought that they were unique and captivating in some kind of way.

I feel very grateful and lucky when Purpletale have given me the chance to try out their products. I was asked to choose 2 products that I wanted to review, I choose their Once Upon A Neck Cream - because I thought I need to take more care of my neck and Setting the Scene Essence - hoping that it can help to fade my blemishes since it contains stellar ingredients such as ginseng, peptide complexes, adenosine and niacinamide

As soon as I opened the box, not only it is lightly scented, I also didn't expect to receive more than the 2 intended products! PT wow-ed me with their generosity, especially when I've been dying to get my hands on their 5 Steps to Lovely Skin and the fluffy The Beauty Of You headband!!!! Thank you so much for the generosity, PT. I can't be grateful and thankful enough. I also received a cute mini card, handwritten by PT founder, Young Ji. I love receiving handwritten cards!


Purpletale is not a beauty line.

Purpletale is a movement. 

We believe that when you look good, you feel good. And when you feel good, you can’t help but share goodness with the world around you.

That’s why we only use wholesome, enriching ingredients that nourish your skin and make it easy to feel beautiful from the inside out.

Our products are simple and easy to use, making your regimen feel less like a process and more like pampering. 

Together, we can help everyone see their beauty and share their story.

purpletale: The beauty of YOU.


Our mission at purpletale is quite simple: to empower everyone to discover, love and celebrate who they are.

How do we plan to make that happen?

Why Purpletale:

The name purpletale is a combination of two things that we love the most - the color purple and stories. But more importantly, it represents what we want to achieve with the brand.

Young Ji's Story:

Hi I’m Young-Ji.

I would never have used the word “Beautiful” to describe myself a few years ago.
Not with the extreme expectations of beauty out there today. Not while being bombarded with gorgeous faces and exotic races on TV, magazine covers and all over my newsfeeds, day in and day out. Not in this world where it’s so easy to modify anything that’s wrong with you, whether digitally or surgically.

I was cute. Pretty, at best. But I would never have looked at myself and said “Hi Beautiful.”

Too much of our time is spent in the mirror on a fault finding mission and trying achieve someone else’s sensationalized standard. We focus on what’s not right with us, what we wish were different, and not learning to appreciate the person looking back at us in the mirror.

I wanted to change that—to help other people see the beauty in themselves. That’s why I created purpletale. Wholesome products with effective ingredients for loving the skin you’re in, that help to enable causes focused on boosting self-esteem. purpletale reminds us that the best thing you can be is yourself. Everything we do stems from the basic belief that you don’t need help becoming beautiful, sometimes you just need a little help seeing that you already are. 

That’s my story of beauty. I’d love to hear yours.

Her story is so inspiring! Lets take a moment to congratulate Young Ji eonnie on PT launching~ I do not know her personally but I am proud of her and the people behind PT.

Now after getting you guys inspired, lets get on to the unboxing!

The Beauty Of You headband

This one is unfortunately unavailable for sale yet. Hope it gets available soon! The ribbon is big, wearing it makes me feel like a toddler, haha.


Setting the Scene Treatment Essence - USD 34.99/130ml

The best stories start strong, and that’s how yours should, too — each and every day! Our treatment essence sets the perfect foundation for your beauty routine by improving your skin's texture and clarity.

This lightweight essence starts you off with a hydrating base that instantly perks up your skin, leaving you glowing from the inside out. Is it just us, or is this story off to a great start?

Loaded with ginseng, peptide complexes, adenosine and niacinamide, this lightweight treatment essence will set the right tone for your day. It helps hydrate, brighten and smooth fine lines for that oh-so-coveted glow.  Perfect for all skin types. 

With daily use, this essence will improve skin’s overall texture and contribute to a more beautiful, balanced, and glowing complexion. Click HERE for full information.

5 Steps to Lovely Skin - USD 7.99/piece

When you are looking for an effective and convenient skincare solution, turn to our 5 Steps to Lovely Skin – a complete facial solution that will leave your skin feeling deeply nourished and looking absolutely lovely.

This portable five-step facial treatment kit comes with (1) foam cleanser, (2) ampoule, (3) bio cellulous sheet mask, (4) facial cream, and (5) neck cream in one neat packet so that you can enjoy facials whenever and wherever you want!

Perfect for all skin types. Click HERE for full information.

Once Upon A Neck Cream - USD 39.99/50ml

Your face may be the star of the show, but your neck also shares the spotlight. The skin around the collarbone and neck is thinner and more delicate, and it can quickly start to feel like the ignored, ugly stepsister if it's left untreated. Our revitalizing cream gives your neck the attention it deserves by tightening and keeping wrinkles at bay. No ugly ducklings here; just smooth, perfect swans. 

Think of it as your neck's knight in shining armor -- protecting you from aging and fighting to help bring forth the radiant, more youthful skin that hides within. Apply daily and show off your neck with confidence.

love love loveeeeeeee their description. I am a sucker for fairytales.

How To Use
Using an upward motion, gently massage the cream over your neck and jawline. Best if used both morning and night.

Main Ingredients
Compromised of ginseng, peptide complexes, adenosine, and other key ingredients, this anti-aging formula helps hydrate, firm, and tighten to reduce the appearance of fine lines.

Ginseng saponin: The hero of our story; this revolutionary ingredient of Asian skincare saves the day with nourishing and antioxidant properties to help restore and preserve a more youthful look.

Peptide complexes: This anti-aging powerhouse prompts natural collagen production to reverse the signs of aging.

Adenosine: this ingredient doesn’t believe in reading between the lines, just getting rid of them - and without irritating or inflaming your skin in the process. This yeast derived ingredient penetrates deeply into skin to improve appearance of wrinkles and fine lines while supporting healthy cell function.

Water, Panthenol, Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Isohexadecane, Butylene Glycol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Stearic Acid, Cetyl Ethylhexanoate, Phytosqualane, Sorbitan Olivate, Cetearyl Glucoside, Beeswax, Beta-Glucan, Arginine, Carbomer, Allantoin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Alcohol Denat., Pueraria Mirifica Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Acetyl Hexapeptide-8, Copper Tripeptide-1, Palmitoyl Pentapeptide-4, Ethylhexylglycerin, Adenosine, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Fragrance

Since I am going to review the neck cream, I am going to show you guys more photos of it.

Front view

Back view

"Your face may be the star, but your neck shares the spotlight. Give it a little extra loving with out revitalizing cream that helps tighten and keep wrinkles at bay" oh gosh how I love how this sounds so much. It is just smartly thought out and really convinced me to get this neck cream. Seriously though, imagine having a youthful face but a saggy neck, it just don't match. I never thought of caring for my neck seriously before. I like how PT is attentive towards neck care.

Top view

****sorry for the inconsistency of the backgrounds. I tried my very best to get the best lighting in the house :( someone please sponsor me a lighting setting.

The neck cream comes in a circular box, fancy. I open the box and the neck cream will be sitting there, like on its own throne.

like this~

Underneath the 'throne', there lies a plastic spatula. I like it when companies are thoughtful about having a spatula. Kudos to companies that include spatulas for tub products!

The actual neck cream. it has a hard glass body, need to be cautious when holding because I don't want to break it. The packaging can be bulky for travelling, but you can always store it in a smaller container.

MFG and EXP date can be found at bottom of packaging

Product is protected with a plastic film to prevent the cream from spilling

Taken under natural lighting

With flash

Not too thick but rich, spreads well. Absorbed well into the skin too, it doesn't feel heavy and greasy though I live in a humid area. I compared my hands with and without the cream and my hand with the cream appeared brighter. The cream made my neck brighter too temporarily. The brightening effect is mild and natural. Hope the effect will be permanent after a long use.

it smells so divineeeeeee without being overwhelming. It is hard for me to describe the scent, it smells like a perfume that is appropriate for a house's living room. it just smells so nice.

My final thoughts:
I am a 20-year old and already have 2 very fine neck fold lines, I am not sure if it is visible to others but it bothers me a bit. I wonder is it normal to already develop those fold lines at age 20?

I never used any neck creams before, this is my first. I usually just spread the leftover face moisturizer and essence from sheetmasks to my neck.

I apply the neck cream day and night via massaging, sharing its goodness to my collarbones as well. I haven't observe any changes to my neck lines but throughout a week of using it, its been enjoyable. I love it so much(especially for the smell!) that sometimes I apply it twice on my neck during night time and even at random times during the day. I hope there will be improvements after a long term use.

I do not feel any tightening sensation or might have yet to. Its been gentle to me. No breakouts as well.

The price may be a bit high up but I assume that must've been from their fancy packaging and amazing ingredients. 50ml just for the neck alone is a generous amount anyway, it is worth the money because this product is just delightful.

Anyway, the neck cream is moisturizing and hydrating. It makes the neck look visibly hydrated. Once again, the cream doesn't feel heavy, non-greasy and doesn't make my neck prone to perspire.

Pros +
- Moisturizing
- Hydrating
- Smells like heaven
- Brightening

Cons -
- bulky packaging
- not travel-friendly
- hard glass may break
- expensive
- I still love everything about the neck cream despite all of the above.

Will I purchase?
I knew it when I first started using it that I will be purchasing this amazing neck cream.

Will I recommend?
Oh definitely. The neck cream is just as divine as any of Purpletale other products, I only read good reviews about them so far. Even Julie of www.pdxbeautiful.com is really impressed with Purpletale Ode to Hydration Facial Cream. You guys can read about her review HERE.

Where to purchase?
You can purchase directly from Purpletale website at www.purpletale.com. HERE is the direct product link. PT offers free shipping for orders above USD 40 and ships to any countries that offer deliveries via UPS and FedEx.

Reaching a minimum of USD 40 will be easy since most of their product prices are close to reaching the amount.

Purpletale is a brand that your truly have to look for. They are winning with their products description, naming and ingredients. Reading every of their products description really made me feel like I am in Wonderland. This brand is going places seriously. And if you are a lover of purple and skincare, it is just an obvious reason to get your hands on Purpletale products.

Thank you so much, Purpletale for making me feel like a Princess for having an extra pampering for my neck. You guys, drown yourself into a skincare fairytale by checking out more of Purpletale products at www.purpletale.com. Do stalk their Instagram too at @hellopurpletale because they have amazing photos. The next Purpletale product that I am planning to review is their 5 Steps to Lovely Skin.

[REVIEW] RiRe VVVic Lip Scrub

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

Hello, beautiful human beings! How's everyone's skin condition so far? I am currently having pre-hormonal breakouts since my shark week is around the corner. My face gets oilier at times like this and I hate it. I also avoid to sheetmask (unless using a sheetmask thats for troubled skin, calming, AC control) because I don't want to disturb the breakouts and possibly worsen it. So yeah, basically having a skin MTBD (Mental Breakdown) right now, haha. Hope it will clear up as soon as possible!

RiRe VVVic Lip Scrub Review

I bought this somewhere around April from my previous Roseroseshop HAUL where you guys can read about it HERE. I am a girl that fancies cleaning her lips with a lip scrub every morning. My lips produce alot of discussing dead skin every morning and I like to scrap them off using a lip scrub. I've been getting lots of dead skin when I wake up since I started using the Laneige Lip Sleeping Mask (review here). that lip mask is really effective in moisturizing and cleaning the lips at the same time. I know it is not ideal to scrub every morning but my lips aren't that sensitive now so it is okay. I also like to be prepared to prep my lips in case if I have surprise plans to happen during the day, it helps with my lipstick application as well.

On the packaging, "Rough due to the external environment moist lips a moisturizing scrub"......................the mistranslation though.

The lip scrub comes in a squeezable 10ml tube. its MFG date was dated in 31st Dec 2015.

Ingredients list: retrieved from its box.

Info taken from roseroseshop:


Fix make-up cleanly and neatly Lip remover that helps
fix your lip make-up by RiRe lip manicure anytime and

[How to use]

Apply lip manicure remover a you want
Massage it for 20 seconds
Rinse through water after rubbing.


Has a white creamy texture that is not runny. It has a scent that I couldn't identify, its not perfumey, floral-ish nor fruity, I just don't know how to describe it, haha. But it is not that unpleasant.

Believe me or not, this lip scrub contains ZERO granules at all!!!! Unlike any other lip scrubs.

I take a pea-sized amount and rub it on my disgusting morning lips. It will leave a funny white residue on the lips and it will make you look pale AF since the lip scrub is mixed with the dead skin. Try not to accidentally taste the lip scrub because I think it tastes disgusting, haha.


Oh boy, this lip scrub that contains zero granules at all REALLY does scrap off the dead skin effectively!!! I was amazed at first. Lips really felt clean, dead skin-free and smooth. Lipstick application just made easier.

I thought that it would be great for flaky dry lips to use this since lip scrubs that contains granules may be harsh for them and potentially causing bleeding. This is one gentle lip scrub for y'all.

Also, since it contains no granules, theres no plumping effect to it. This info for some other people's preference. And yeah I do prefer lip scrubs with granules too since I like it when my lips are a bit plumped.

Pros +
- Gentle
- Effective
- Left lips clean and smooth
- Affordable

Cons -
- No plumping effect to those who likes this effect
- Other than that, none!

My final thoughts:

I like how excellent it is. But as I mentioned above, I prefer lip scrubs that are a bit abrasive and make my lips a bit plumped. This is not a bad product, I am just excited get to experience this kind of lip scrub and eventhough I have a preference, I will look for this lip scrub when my lips become flaky dry (which is impossible, unless I live in a cold country haha).

Will I purchase?
Maybe yes when my lips yearn for it.

Will I recommend?
ofcourse! I think it is suitable to all lip types, however I am not responsible if you experience negative effect from it.

Where to purchase?
USD 2.22 at Roseroseshop (exclude shipping) - direct product link HERE

Photos are mine otherwise stated. Product was bought using own money. My thoughts and experience are honest and true.

Thank you so much for reading, guys! I also would like to THANK YOU GUYS for helping me reach my blog's milestone, which is receiving 200 pageviews daily! From 0 to over 200 pageviews daily now! *inserts crying emoji* Thank you so so much to those who have been reading this blog, eventhough it can get boring sometimes, haha.

H A P P Y S U M M E R to everyone at every part of the world!!!!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Summer so far! I live in a country where it is Summer all year long. This post is in collaboration with the lovely Joann, a Canadian based beauty blogger. I thought that writing this collab post is an opportunity to show you guys what my choice of Summer essentials are, especially to you my friends who are living in countries that are experiencing seasonal changes. You can find more Summer essentials at Joann's blog serendipitousjoann.blogspot.ca, she posted Part 2 of our Summer Essentials blog post collab there! Without further due, lets move on to my first pick for Summer;


Sunscreens are not just a MUST, but they are a NEED. Choose a sunscreen that provides a high number of SPF that is accompanied with high PA rankings. For example, the higher the + symbol is after the PA, the better protection it will provide against sun rays. Remember to apply sunscreens at least 30 minutes before going out and reapply after every 2 ~ 3 hours.

Just a precaution, do not stay under the sun too long to an extend that you burned your skin. Believe me, you will have a hard time recovering from the burn, your skin will be dry and experience shedding, and the tan lines might just be permanent, I am speaking from a personal experience here, my arm sleeves appear darker than the rest of my body. I will never go out without sunscreens since then. So, be fully equipped with sunscreen, guys!

Products featured - Etude House Sunprise Natural Corrector SPF50+ PA+++ and Fruit Of The Earth Block Up SPF50 Waterproof Kids Sunscreen.


You are now equipped with sunscreens, the next thing you might want to do is to look good under the sun like a Sun Goddess (Sun Goddess don't exist, hence you can be the Sun Goddess yourself). BB Cushions can be general and has alot of varieties, but I want to be specific for Summer. I've been testing out a few cushions under a hot climate, so far, the Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control is like the best cushion ever for the climate. It provides good coverage without looking cakey, long lasting, has cooling effect, semi-matte finish, has sunscreen of SPF50 PA+++, what else can sound better than this? My second summer essential, it definitely make me look good, too.


Aloe Vera gels are like life saviors at the end of the day, which is why it is in my summer essentials. It helps to soothe any burn, heat, irritation, wounds and redness that you received during the day. It can also provide cooling capabilities that allow your face and body to return to its normal temperature. To maximize the effect of this, simply put it in the fridge beforehand, and you will enjoy slathering some ice cold gel on your skin. I seriously cannot live without aloe vera gels, I need to have stocks of them, I can get panicky when I run out of it.

Sunscreens, Laneige BB Cushion Pore Control and Aloe Vera gels, you guys have to treat them like bestfriends during Summer, because they sure are what you ever needed in your life. I hope this post can help you guys on making your Summer enjoyable while taking care of the skin.
