Stay tuned for my Brighter Under Eyes in 7 Days challenge review after a week!
Filters are great, but great skin is better. Agree? When my skin is healthy, I have the perfect canvass for my makeup. And sometimes, I’m confident to just have a bare skin and wear skincare alone. Ever since I’ve learned the importance of having a skincare regimen, especially when I turned 30yo, I’ve always been trying different products, and I’ve never missed a day without skincare!
I’ve recently put a new skincare line to the test, and I’d love to share my review. It’s great for normal skin and even perfect for those with sensitive skin due to it’s mildness.
My Skin Type: Oily
Sometimes I would notice that my skin would respond to environmental changes or even stress, but for the past days of using these Innisfree TRUECARE Skincare Line, I have already noticed a positive difference. The products are filled with pure active ingredients that are mild yet effective.
I will review products in order of how I used them.
TRUECARE Calamine 6.5 Cleanser’s formula contains skin-soothing calamine (500ppm) to control excess sebum and thereby smooth the concerned area and protect the skin from unnecessary sebum. It is a gel-type, sulfate-free surfactant with a pH level of 6.5 type of facial cleanser that has a very light and mild scent. It easily produces a dense foam on my wet face. It cleanses my face off of oil/sebum, yet it keeps the moisture in even after cleansing. It definitely gave me a non-tightening and refreshing cleansing experience. This daily cleanser can be used day and night.
BONUS: It can be used for body skin too! Skin can get clogged with sweat and sebum. So I can use this to relieve skin problems on my back, chest and other parts of the body all at the same time.
TRUECARE PHA Toner Padthat contains mild PHA to clear the skin texture without causing irritation. This pad is soaked in toner that wipes away the flaky dead skin and makeup residue! It’s my first time to use a toner pad and I’m loving it! It’s mild yet it feels like my skin is gently being cleansed of residue that wasn’t removed during my first wash. It’s mild and has a little to no scent.
TRUECARE Panthenol 10 Moisture Skin. It’s a daily hydrating toner. Perfect for my oily skin, and definitely my favorite! I’ve learned that oily skin happens when the sebaceous glands make too much sebum to compensate for the dryness the skin feels inside. Sebum is the waxy, oily substance that protects and hydrates the skin. It is vital for keeping the skin healthy. But, too much sebum can lead to oily skin, clogged pores and acne. TRUECARE Panthenol 10 Moisture Skin is a light but moisture-rich panthenol toner that balances the pH level after cleansing. The watery texture replenishes moisture from the inside without feeling sticky on the outside. It feels refreshing on the face too!
TRUECARE AC Soothing Ampoule contains propolis extracted from beehives and hyaluronic acid. It’s a sebum-control ampoule that exfoliates dead skin to discharge sebum or other waste matter, hydrates skin and strengthens the skin barrier to restore the oil and water balance all in one product. And, if you’re wondering —ampoules are considered to be more concentrated version of a serum. It can be used day and night.
TRUECARE CICA Intensive Balm contains Centella_4X, gained from 30 times the amount of centella asiatica leaves. It’s a lightweight, translucent gel type balm formula that spreads effortlessly as it adheres to the skin. It’s super moisturizing but it feels light and non-sticky. It feels like a rich butter on my skin that delivers extreme moisturization. It can be used as a spot solution — just put on a rich amount on the area of concern, or for the entire face —start from a small area until the skin adapts to the product, then once you find that there are no problems, apply evenly on the entire face. It also has Retinol (vitamin A) which boosts the amount of collagen in our skin that plumps out skin, cutting down fine lines and wrinkles. It also improves skin tone, color and reduces patches. I use this between essence/ampoule/serum and cream, and it’s best to apply it at night and wear moisturizer and sunscreen the next morning.
TRUECARE Moist Recovery Cream contains 10% camellia butter, an excellent moisturizer, spreads on softly and builds an instant moisturizing barrier while quickly penetrating the skin with minimum oiliness in its finish. Other creams I’ve tried felt heavy but this recovery cream is different. It doesn’t have a heavy feel and it feels like my skin absorbs it easily. I prefer to use this at nighttime.
TRUECARE Non-nano Non-comedogenic Inorganic Sun Cream SPF 48 PA+++ is a tinted sunscreen that blocks out UV rays and blue light! This is an inorganic, physical sunscreen free of chemical UV block agents that might iritate the skin. The use of non-nano size ingredients means that the particles are larger than those of the skin so the formula doesn’t get absorbed by the skin. Since we are spending more time indoors and in front of our laptops or phones, TRUECARE Sun Cream has been tested for its ability to block blue light to protect skin against a variety of sources, such as mobile phone and laptop computer. It has a pink tone-up for a foundation-free look esp under face mask. I used this alone without makeup and my first impression was that it has a “metallic white” cast on my skin. I have yet to try this under makeup. I’ll do this and make a follow-up review on that.
Innisfree TRUECARE Skincare Line is dermatologist-tested, hypoallergenic-tested and non-comedogenic-tested.
Overall, Innisfree TRUECARE Skincare Line effectively addresses my skin concerns fastidiously.I’m happy that it is working on my oily skin. It’s mild and gentle. It definitely helps in hydrating and plumping my skin so it looks more young and healthy.
