My take on the Innisfree Orchid Skin-
The packaging of the entire Orchid range is total love for me ^_^ Everything in bright orchid purple packaging 😀 This comes in a sturdy purple bottle with a screw-on cap & a nozzle mouth through which I mostly end up pouring a bit too much. Easy to use & travel with if you ignore the large 200 ml quantity.
The toner is cloudy white, with a thin, gel-fluid sort of weird consistency which thank goodness, is not at all tacky/sticky 🙂 I usually squirt out some on my palm after cleansing my face at night & pat it on generously over my facial & neck region. My skin instantly feels soothed, calm & hydrated & it gets absorbed completely in a couple of minutes 🙂
I cannot vouch for its anti-ageing claims as I do not have noticeable wrinkles/fine lines, but I have been using it for 3 weeks & I can say that this does make my skin look less tired & stay more hydrated in this cold, dry weather & I love how silky soft & supple my skin feels after my night time routine ^_^
It does not dry out my skin at all despite having alcohol astonishingly & has not aggravated or irritated my sensitive skin in any way 🙂
The toner, like the cream has a lovely subtle floral fragrance which is extremely soothing & it fades in minutes.
Pros of the Innisfree Orchid Skin:
- Cute & sturdy bottle packaging.
- Very lightweight gel-fluid texture- gets absorbed quickly.
- Makes skin soft & supple & leaves behind no tacky feel.
- Hydrates skin well & makes it look revitalized on daily use.
- Lovely subtle floral fragrance.
Cons of the Innisfree Orchid Skin:
I wish it had a pump packaging as I always end up pouring more.
Swatch of the Innisfree Orchid Skin-
My Rating: 4.4/5!
Do I recommend the Innisfree Orchid Skin?
Innisfree Orchid Skin is a lovely lightweight toner with a gel-like consistency, designed to revitalize skin & fight various signs of ageing, packed with antioxidants. I love how it freshens & hydrates my parched skin, making it look supple & alive & definitely plan to repurchase if I manage to finish the huge bottle 😛
