This sparkling mineral lotion is a brand new release from Innisfree. I’ve been settling into my exchange program in Denmark. Knowing the air would be dry, I bought this Jeju Sparkling Mineral Lotion just before flying. Now, the humidity in Denmark is a dry 46%, while Singapore’s is a muggy 70% as always.
According to Innisfree, this is follows a 6-free system: Free of parabens, animal ingredients, mineral oil, colorants, artificial fragrance and imidazolidinyl urea. Hmmm!
Let’s see how it has been holding up!
It contains macadamia nut oil and is meant to be a balanced hydrating and moisturising formula. It also contains 61.8% sparkling mineral water from the “UNESCO Global Geopark-designated” Sanbang Mountain on Jeju to “provide deep hydration to the skin with carbonated minerals”.
Haha, well, I say it is indeed balanced. I can feel the hydration, together with a touch of oil which helps holds in the moisture. I find it to be gentle and suitable to use when I have breakouts.
Texture & Feel
The consistency is very light and watery, absorbing quickly into the skin. It doesn’t leave residue behind and sits well under makeup. Comfortable.
Light and citrusy
I like it! Not quite feeling the citrus scent though :P This does live up to its claims of being a balanced moisturing and hydrating lotion. Since it is incredibly light, you’ll have to use a little more than usual. It’s perfect for more humid Singapore, but in Denmark, I find it not moisturising enough for my makeup to go over as smoothly.
I’m still glad I have it and do use it religiously every day. The air here is really dry in comparison!
What are your top moisturisers for drier fall/winter climates? I would love to hear from you!
