Serum First Impression: Innisfree Canola Honey Serum

Hello, Guys and Gals :)
How are u today? I hope u're happy and blessed always.
What we got in this post? Well, let see, I won't call it as a review because I haven't got my self trying for long time.
Maybe this is the first time I say about this brand. Innisfree is a famous Korean Brand but unfortunately until this post is written, they haven't opened store yet in Indonesia. So we can only get it via online shop.

Let's talk about it : Innisfree Canola Honey Serum

I took this pic from Korean Cosmetics tgiwholesale 
Anyone speaks korean here? :)

This is the product description:

Formulated with green complex (Jeju green tea, mandarine, camellia leaf etc.), Jeju canola extract 40%
:Provides moisture and nutrition for skin
: Jelly texture.
: Paraben free, artificial pigment free, mineral oil free.

:Apply a proper amount to your face and tap lightly.

(Took this pic randomly from google)
Mine is only sample sachet version, contains 1 ml.
I got 1 sachet as freebie.

This is the full version.
The liquid has honey color.

The first thing I noticed besides the color is the smell. The serum smells like real honey :) Seriously, prove it by urself if u don't trust me, ha ha...
At first I thought, "Well, I seem like putting honey on my face". 
When I take out the serum, it felt little sticky at first. Yeah, just like u got honey on ur finger.
The serum consistency is somewhat jelly-ish like honey.
It felt the same when I spread and massage it onto my face. But don't worry, as the serum absorbed into ur skin, it would not be any sticky feeling anymore. 
My skin became hydrated and more supple after application. No more flaky skin.
I really love the moisturizing/ hydrating effect.
I've finished 1 sachet.
A sachet can go for 3-4 times usage
I used it after toner. I gave little time until the serum completely sunk into my skin. And then I used BB cream. 
It's really nice to use it before BB Cream. Because my BB Cream could be blended evenly easier on my hydrated skin.

I applied it in the morning and night.
After I tapped it to my face before bed time, it did not create any film-like coat on my skin surface. In the morning my skin felt more supple and hydrated without feeling greasy.

How To Use:
Two pics below contains information about how to use this product.

Overall, my first impression on this product is good. This serum manages to maintain my skin moisture level. It is non greasy and works well in preparing my skin before applying BB Cream. This is good as night regimen too.

Thank you for reviewing the Innisfree Honey serum. It seems to be the only one that does not contain alcohol in it. The Green Tea Seed Serum does. Also, thank you for sharing the ingredient list. It is hard to find the ingredients in many of Innisfree's products before buying. I can't wait to try it!
