I recently received some products from Isntree through Picky to try out in exchange for my honest review. I loved using each one of these products so much that I thought I would share my review here too. I honestly noticed a difference within a few days of using these products and would recommend them all!
If you’re not familiar with Isntree, they’re a Korean skincare brand that was founded in 2009. They are is focused on green-beauty products with ingredients that are safe for skin and use natural and functional ingredients – dermatology meets nature. Isntree is also eco-friendly, has sustainable packaging. The brand is also cruelty free and does not engage in animal testing. Many of their products are formulated for sensitive skin.
The brand name can be broken down as follows, quoted from their website:
- ISland: a nature island that is pure and clean and not affected by pollution
- Natural: use of pure raw materials from nature
- TREE: a strong tree that bears good fruit and grows with our consumers
Chestnut AHA 8% Clear Essence
The chestnut AHA essence is sensitive skin friendly, moisturizing and helps remove dead skin cells. This essence is very light-weight, refreshing, gentle and absorbs quickly. I have very sensitive skin and used it daily with no issues.
- Gongju Castaneda cremate Shell Extract
- Low-irritant AHA, glycolic acid
- Lactic acid
TW-Real Bifida Ampoule
This bifida serum strengthens your skin barrier, reduces wrinkles and brightens your complexion. It’s light-weight but still is packed with moisture. It also absorbs quickly and isn’t sticky. It left my skin feeling silky smooth and glowing. It also layers with other serums nicely.
- 88% Bifida fermentation extract
- Triple peptides
Mugwort Calming Cream
The mugwort cream is incredibly calming, moisturizing and great for acne-prone skin. It feels soothing upon application. It’s not greasy or too heavy, and a little really goes a long way which I loved.
- Ganghwa mugwort extract
- Licorice root extract
- Artemisia capillaries extract
I‘ve been using these products as part of my night time routine, but this cream absorbs quickly as well and would layer nicely with other products or under SPF.
