Jeju Sparkling Oil Free Gel Cream


I haven’t used or reviewed any Innisfree products in quite a long time (my last Innisfree đánh giá was actually the Jeju Lava Seawater line), và I have such a fondness for this brand as one of the first Korean skincare brands I tried & loved – so I’ve really enjoyed trying out the Jeju Sparkling Mineral line for the past month.

Innisfree Jeju Sparkling Mineral Essence

The moisture essence, formulated with Jeju sparkling thermal water delivers abundant minerals và moisture into your skin while providing a perfect solution for sleekness, brightness và elasticity simultaneously.

The main focus of this line is obviously the Jeju sparkling mineral water of which this essence contains 76.34% of it. (Note: sparkling water refers lớn water that has carbon dioxide added to lớn it, thus making it carbonated, aka fizzy water. This is what makes the chất lượng lightweight, bubbly texture of this particular product and why it is dispensed through an aerosol can).

Ingredients list

Other noteable ingredients include orange peel extract, orchid extract, green tea leaf extract, wiilow bark extract và prickly pear extract – their benefits include a set of antioxidants, anti-ageing, soothing và moisturising properties. I bought this at the over of năm 2016 and I believe it has been reformulated slightly since its first release in 2015 as it no longer contains niacinamide (for brightening), squalene is much higher up the ingredients list (for anti-inflammatory, anti-ageing, moisturising) & there is a slightly higher amount of deionized water.

I love the aerosol bottle this comes in; the gradiant blue-green of it is so beautiful and calming và evokes thoughts of hydration, sea, water and summer. It is also quite quality as you don’t get many skincare products that come out of an aerosol can which is what intrigued me và made me want lớn give this a try.

Aersol pump can

I use this essence both morning and night after cleansing, toner & FTE. I use it alongside other serums/essences so it slots in before or after other products in this category depending on lightest lớn thickest consistency. The directions on the packaging suggest using an amount equal lớn 1.5cm in diameter onto face & neck & then smooth for better absorption. 

This comes with 70g of product but because it’s a carbonated frothy consistency, I think you can easily run through this a lot quicker than other products containing the same amount. It’s so light và airy there’s a tendency khổng lồ assume you need to lớn apply a lot but actually I quickly found after pumping out way too much the first time, that a small lump (half of the amount shown below), can go a long way for your face & neck. If you want this sản phẩm to last a couple months at least, you only need to lớn press down very lightly on the aerosol pump rather than pushing it all the way down.

You only need half this amount for face & neck as it is very watery và a little goes a long way

What I found surprising about this essence compared lớn other Innisfree skincare products I’ve used, is that its fragrance is a lot more subtle & natural. It smells light and fresh with a hint of citrus. People who are usually put off by Innisfree’s heavily fragranced products might want to give this one a try.

I absolutely love using this essence và it has become one of my favourites lớn use this summer. I especially enjoy the consistency. It sprays out the bottle lượt thích fluffy foam (reminds me of the Neogen Real Fresh Cleansing Foams) but then it melts down, liquifies & becomes very watery & spreadable as you smooth it over your skin. It instantly gives your skin that burst of cooling hydration & sinks into the skin so well, leaving it refreshed, soft and hydrated without a sticky, heavy feeling. (If you are heavy handed và apply a lot of sản phẩm at once though, it does take a bit longer to lớn absorb và you will get a slight tacky finish before it completely dries down).

Very refreshing và hydrating – lượt thích a burst of water for your skin

It is disappointing that niacinamide is no longer present in this essence as I love seeing this fantastic ingredient in my skincare, but it doesn’t bother me too much as I use a lot of other products in my routine with niacinamide in it and the main focus for this product is its hydrating and moisturising abilities – which is what Innisfree were likely emphasising by moving squalene up to 5th place on the ingredients list. You’re better off using a separate treatment hàng hóa targeted specificially for brightening skin which contains a larger concentration of niacinamide than the older version of this essence originally would.

This hàng hóa overall benefits from being in an aerosol can và dispensing as foam because it makes it fun và interesting to use – but when it comes down to it, it isn’t the most potent skincare hàng hóa since the majority of this essence is made up of Jeju sparkling thermal water. It does remind me of the Belif Hungarian Water Essence, và both products may not sound the most exciting on paper, but they are most definitely effective at flooding your skin with hydration và maintaining it within your skin, without making you oily. This has been super useful for me this summer when we’ve had a really unexpected heatwave và my skin has never gotten dehydrated và tight in the heat when I’ve used this.

Innisfree Oil-Free Gel Cream

This oil-free moisture gel cream, formulated with Jeju sparkling thermal water, replenishes your skin with the moisture it needs & freshly captures the oily sebum. 

This has a slightly higher concentration of the Jeju sparkling thermal water at 79.5%. There is a regular moisturiser in the Jeju Sparkling Mineral line but at the time I bought this, I had younger, more normal-oily skin than I vị now which is currently on the normal-dehydrated side (with oily t-zone in summer).


Ingredients list

Judging from the ingredients list, this is a lot less exciting than the essence; it has Innisfree’s usual concotion of plant/fruit extracts, a lot of ingredients to lớn control the viscosity of the formula & standard moisturising agents lượt thích glycerin.

The gel cream comes in a vibrant blue screw-top jar – I love Innisfree jars và want to lớn collect them in every colour – but as usual it doesn’t come with a spatula.

Like the essence, the fragrance for this is very minimal & smells natural rather than perfumed. The consistency in the jar is a clear gel that looks like jelly but is quite firm and doesn’t fall out if you quickly tip the jar upside down. I find it easier and more hygenic khổng lồ scoop out this sản phẩm with a spatula due to lớn its wobbly texture. When you break down the gel và massage it into your skin, it does become very liquid & spreadable so a little bit feels like it goes a long way – however although it feels very wet and skin-drenching when you first apply, it does dry down very quickly with an immediate tacky finish that goes away after you’ve let it absorb for a bit.

Comes sealed with an inner plastic cover

Clear, firm gel consistency

Lightweight – spreads easily with no resistance & has a watery texture

As my skin isn’t on the oily side, I don’t mind applying a bit more than I would for a usual cream moisturiser. My problem with this gel-cream though is that I don’t feel it hydrates & retains moisture in my skin for very long so if I’m going to lớn be in an air conditioned enviroment for a long period of time or I plan to lớn wear a more matte foundation than I would avoid using this moisturiser. For oily skin I can see this being a great option for the summer. When I use this I barely get any sebum production on my t-zone during the day và what little oil that I vị get on my nose area is very very minimal. This has been the case even on really hot days when I’m out in the sun.

Absorbs very quickly with no visible dewy finish or sheen. Looks as if nothing has been applied và you can’t feel anything sitting atop your skin.

However mid-way through the day, I can feel my skin getting more dehydrated on areas such as my chin & my skin texture starts khổng lồ show through my foundation, which is how I can usually identify my skin is lacking moisture from within. This is bearable for the hot summer months, but I definitely wouldn’t be able khổng lồ use this gel cream in the Autumn/Winter. What I’ve found myself doing on some days when I want that additional moisture is adding a couple drops of the Huxley facial oil lớn this, which really defeats the purpose of this cream being oil-free.

I wouldn’t buy this again because as I get older, my skin gets less & less oily, but for people who struggle with oily skin I highly recommend this one because it does have good oil control.

Overall, I lượt thích these products from the Jeju Sparkling Mineral line – Innisfree skincare rarely disappoints me. Although I vị love the essence much more than the gel cream, that’s not khổng lồ say the latter isn’t a good product, it’s just not really suited for my skin type as I prefer và need my moisturiser to bởi vì more for me to lớn combat dehydration.
