Innisfree Green Barley Cleansing Cream Review

innisfree green barley cleansing cream review

Innisfree is a well-known South Korean skincare and makeup brand, known for their Jeju-inspired lines of natural, “green” products. Tree hugging goodness, anyone?

Cleansing foams tend to strip moisture from our skin. If you’ve ever experienced dry, flaky and tight skin after a foam cleanser, you know what I mean 😉 One solution? Cleansing creams.

Anyone else have a hard time finding good cleansing creams? After serious searching, I found this gem. The Innisfree Green barley Cleansing Cream has been my go-to everyday cleanser the past few months. I’m stoked to share this find!

Curious? Let’s check it out!

Side note: I was using and about to review the excellent Minimal cream cleanser from Innisfree, which I’ve completely finished, but couldn’t find it on my last visit to the store.

The Breakdown...

  • Cleansing Power: Good yet gentle. It dissolves light makeup. I would still recommend an actual makeup remover before cleanser though, to be certain your skin is 100% clean and fresh.
  • Texture: Lightweight, bouncy and creamy
  • Scent: Fresh, slightly tangy. Good perk-me-up in the morning

The Verdict…

A good yet gentle cleanser that doesn’t dry out the skin. It leaves my skin feeling clean and comfortable. It gives a feeling of being sufficiently hydrated and still in good balance, that I don’t feel the need to moisturise immediately afterwards. I’ve found it to really get along with my dry and sensitive skin. I hope folks with a similar skin type might find this helpful.

I would recommend this cleanser for those looking for alternatives to foam cleansers, or find other cleansers drying. Or even if you’re looking to experiment with your cleansing routine.

    Sounds so nice! It’s on my wishlist, now. I’ve only tried one Innisfree item in the past, a nail polish 🙂

        It was good, for the price! Nothing exciting, though.

      Hi Jackie, thanks for reading! Hmm, no I have not found any mentions of its pH. Do you have particular concerns relating to its acidity/alkalinity?
