Dear Diary

Hi ladies, today I’m gonna do a review for this Innisfree Eco Science White C Pore Double Serum. As you know, Asians are generally obsessed with white, glowy skin. I’m not an exception though. I love having bright skin and started using whitening products since highschool. I don’t hate tanned skin. Tanned skin looks great on others but not on me.
It is time to brace yourselves, beauty people at Innisfree . A blindingly brilliant crop of brightening products are poised to hit the aisles soon, starting with a duo of dual-purpose whitening and pore-tightening serums from Korean natural skincare brand innisfree

If the fashion world has its seasonal extravaganzas, consider the following few months a beauty biggie for brightening. Now generally understood to mean an evening of skin tone – no racial connotations here, folks – “whitening” or brightening is, judging by the sheer volume of press releases inundating our reception, still a huge thing for Asian ladies.

Let’s start with innisfree, a relative newcomer in the Singapore market – and a very popular one at that, by way of its feel-good Mother Earth philosophy and, let’s face it, the massive star appeal of its current ambassador and K-Drama king, Lee Min Ho.

Meet the brand’s two new extensions to Eco Science White C, its flagship brightening range. Choose from Eco Science White C Double Serum (shown above) or Eco Science White C Pore Double Serum (below), the former boasting an intensively hydrating, organic green tea-imbued formula and the latter pore-tightening properties courtesy of a dash of refreshing mint.
The citrusy star ingredient of both serums, interestingly enough, is organic tangerine skin, making the green tea and mint serums seem more like bespoke cocktails. Jeju’s organic tangerine zest is said to have at least four times more vitamin C than its pulp – which probably means it would be a good idea for us to eat our oranges whole!
The serum bottle comes with two pump cylinders which dispense just the right amount of stabilised vitamin C, to be mixed with the other ingredients in your palm for maximum potency. To use, simply pump, warm up the freshly concocted serum in your cupped palms, then massage gently into your visage before your usual moisturiser. I really Love the smell and the radiant skin after applying it.
orange and light blue in color and the previous version is orange and white. If you do it wrong, there will see only one type instead of two. Try to distribute the pressure equally on both tubes ;)
I also pictured the ingredients for you girls but it seems very blurr that even I couldn’t read it well. So I decided not to be lazy and type it word by word…
Ingredients: Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Butylene Glycol, Cyclopentasiloxane, Silica, Phenyl Trimethicone, Arbutin, Pentaerythityl Tetraethylhexanoate, Cyclohexasiloxane, Octyldodecyl Myristate, Ascorbyl Glucoside, Mentha Arvensis Leaf Extract, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Orchid Extract, Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Eriobotrya Japonica Leaf Extract, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Inulin Lauryl Carbamate, C14-22 Alcohols, Kaolin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Polysilicone-11, Xanthan Gum, Carbomer, Tromethamine, C12-20 Alkyl Glucoside, Glyceryl Stearate, Stearic Acid, Hydrogenated Licithin, Polyglyceryl-3 Methyl-Glucose Distearate, Subtilisin, Glycoproteins, 1,2-Hexanediol, Disodium EDTA, Water, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance, Blue 1(CI 42090), Yellow 5 (CI 19140)
Wow that’s really a lot. Phewwww, as you can see this one still has “harmful” ingredients in it, like Fragrance, Colorings, Alcohols,… but overall I find it ok since I do not use much products that contain them.
- leaving light-weight feeling on the skin
- doesn’t have much harmful ingredients
- brightens my face a bit.
- it is a little bit pricey,
