Are you one of those people that just gravitate towards all things green tea? Well, you’re not alone. The minute I saw this Green Tea Watery Lotion from Tony Moly, my insides screamed (that sounds quite weird)! I was looking for a face cream that was lightweight yet moisturizing. Then I came across this product and also the Innisfree Green Tea Balancing lotion. But this Tony Moly one was about half the price. So I decided to go for the cheaper one first! I have never tried the Innisfree one, so that may be something I’ll try next.
But let’s talk about this Tony Moly lotion! It contains 100% pure green tea ferment extract (instead of distilled water), hence providing moisture and antioxidants to the skin! I have used this lotion for about 6 months and I must say I love it very much. In fact this was the first korean skincare product I bought.
It comes in a 160ml pump bottle. Cute & compact! It smells like a mild version of a cup of green tea, so if you’re a green tea fan like me, you’ll love it! I love it when skincare products are not drowned in fragrances, this one has the perfect intensity in my opinion.
Application & feel
The lotion is not drippy, but not thick like a cream. It’s very lightweight but provides just enough moisture to make your skin plump. It has a cooling effect after application, which I love!
I’ve had this lotion for about 6 months now and I must say, I do love it lots! When I first started using it, I felt it was a little too lightweight for me because I have extremely dehydrated skin. The first few times I used this, my skin still remained flaky But after a week I can see some slight improvement. Now after about 6 months, all signs of flakiness are gone!
This lotion is free of parabens and according to CosDNA‘s everything is pretty safe! (Click the link for full ingredient list).
How to use
I use it as my last step in my skincare regime. After facial oils & serums, I spread on a good layer of this lotion. I use it mostly at night, but it is light enough to use in the morning too! I just don’t because I have another face cream to use up.
After almost 6 months of use, I’m still left with about half of it, which can probably last me a good 4 more months (or even more!).
I purchased it on ebay from Roseroseau for AUD$14.50. Honestly, I think it’s quite value for money!
Would I repurchase? I’m always wanting to try new products, so I probably won’t repurchase it!
