Review: Innisfree Green Tea Pure Lotion

Hello ~
 This is a very brief review of the Innisfree Green Tea Pure Lotion, a moisturizer, which is based on a sample I got.
I have so many samples collected by now, I really need to catch up with the reviews.
The original product contains 160ml, the sample I got has 5ml, comes in a tiny bottle (I just love these samples that you can use a few times) and lasts for quite a few applications depending on how much you use of it - for me it was over a week, so I think the product is extremely efficient.
The official product description of the Innisfree Green Tea Pure Lotion is: 
This moisturizing lotion, contained with organic green tea water from Jeju island, softly applies and rapidly absorbs into your skin giving you a smooth finish, without leaving any greasiness behind. Organic marshmallow extracts provide your skin with nutrients and restores suppleness.
[Directions] After toner, apply an appropriate amount and smooth over face and neck. 


The texture of this lotion is very pleasant, rather liquid and not oily at all.
When you apply it on your face it soaks into your skin within seconds and leaves a nice pleasant feeling, but no real trace of the lotion at all.
Unfortunately, just like the Green Tea Pure Skin toner, which I tried before, the Green Tea Pure Lotion does not smell natural, but heavily (artificially) perfumed.
I had to search a bit to finally find a list of ingredients of this product, and as I suspected there is artificial fragrance in it: 
Green Tea, Ethanol, Pentaerythrityl tetraethylhexanoate, Opuntia coccinellifera, Brassica Campestris Seed Oil, Mineral Oil, Aloe Barbadensis, Althaea Officinalis, Hydrogenated c6-14 olefin polymers, Glycerin, PEG-100 Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate, Carbomer, Sorbitan Stearate, Sorbityl Laurate, Tromethamine, Disodium EDTA, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance
Green Tea is rich in antioxidants and a really great ingredient for your skin. I sometimes just make a cup of green tea and apply it on my face with a cotton pad, like you would use a toner (though only when I don't have to leave the house, because it can leave a yellow trace on your face). For me the greatest effect of green tea is that it makes my breakout heal faster.

During the time I used this lotion my skin behaved pretty well, no additional breakouts, no irritations, even though I have extremely sensitive skin. I think I can't remember my skin ever going without new breakouts for longer than 2 days, so this is a reason to consider a purchase of the Green Tea Pure Lotion for me.


The Innisfree Grean Tea Pure Lotion seems like a great product for people like me who do not like to use facial creams as it, due to its watery texture, soaks in without leaving any greasiness behind. 
The only negative aspect I could find is the artificial smell and that I really dislike it when companies try to fool people into thinking their products were "all natural", just because there are a few natural ingredients in it.
