With summer right around the corner, my skin has been very sensitive towards dust, pollen, and the stuffy air here in South Korea. Seasonal changes always bring changes to my skin as well (becoming dry and having minor breakouts), and I always struggle to find the right skincare to relieve and supplement my dry skin with the right nourishment.
So I recently purchased Innisfree Olive Real Skin & Lotion that contains a lot of natural ingredients and tried it on my skin. This skincare pack uses extra virgin olive oil from Crete Island and real olives that nourish the skin and retain moisture to produce healthy fresh skin. It’s amazing how everything is so organic that my skin feels bare and healthy almost instantly after I put it on!
When I first opened the bottle, the mild scent of olives flowed out of the bottle and made a great first impression. It was more to my taste, since I prefer subtle scents that are more soothing than stronger ones. Even the fruity olive scent was a surprise because I expected the smell to be like extra virgin olive oil that you cook with in the kitchen.
I also liked the simple packaging that was eco-friendly. It is made out of strong plastic material that is very firm and unbreakable. It’s also recyclable! I never thought that recycling was an option for skincare until using this product. In addition, the design of the bottle resembles a healthy beverage (i.e. Fiji Water, Green Tea, or any fruit juice) that you can get at a local convenient store. Even the green container resembles the color of nature that makes it seem even healthier and organic!
After I made my purchase, I have been applying my skin and lotion both morning and night. It’s highly moisturizing and helps eliminate dryness after using it on a regular day basis. I’ve also found that it heals dry and rough patches around my lip area, which also leads to having fewer breakouts. It really does a great job of balancing out the oil and moisture on my skin. I’ve been seeing great improvement!
How to use
Apply the Olive Real Skin on your face after using a toner of your choice using a cotton pad. Tap your skin with your fingers very lightly until the product is absorbed completely. Then apply the Olive Real Lotion. It will soothe your skin and provide a long lasting moisture effect that lasts 24 hours. You may also layer on with any cream or sleeping pack to make it extra moist overnight.
Also keep in mind that you shouldn’t use this product if you are sensitive to any of its ingredients listed on the bottle!!!
