Sunday Beauty Zen 11.8.2015

Starting off the 2nd week of November and I am already missing the greens of spring and summer.  Today’s Beauty Zen is very green and features a couple of my favorite brands.   If you want more information on a specific product, comment below and I will do my best to answer your question!  I most likely would have written about them (or will) here at my blog and if so, I will add those links at the end of the blog post. 

Take photos of your “Beauty Zen” and post on your social media sites ~ use hashtag #unboxingbeautyzen so we can all see the Zenful products you love!

My Sunday Beauty Zen for 11.8.2015

  • Recipe by Nature Green Tea Cleansing Oil  Memebox ~ testerkorea    I have been waiting to try this for over a year!  Memebox, back when it was International, was supposed to have included this oil in the Green Tea box, but it was replaced with a hand cream😦   They just started to carry it again at the Memebox USA shop and I picked it up ~ look, it has green tea leaves in the oil and it actually does smell like tea🙂 I am currently doing a test with several oil cleansers and this one will be included. 
  • Innisfree Green Tea Cleansing Water Memebox   ~ amazon ~ Innisfree   I love Cleansing waters ~ I started to use them last year and really became a convert when I purchased My Beauty Diary Ultra Cleansing Water. I wanted to try a green tea version and where else to turn but Innisfree?  I use cleansing waters a lot ~ first thing in the morning to wipe off any beauty creams from the night before, when I get home from work, just to refresh my face and after  I double cleanse or wash off a face pack (gel or clay), to ensure that I got every bit of the product off my face.   This cleansing water does leave behind a bit of a tacky feeling, that my skin will absorb it quickly, so it isn’t like I have a heavy dew face going on or anything.   For those familiar with Innisfree’s green tea line, the scent is the same in this product as well ~ it is a fresh floral-herbal scent.  I guess why I use Innisfree Green Tea products in the winter time is that a) I need the extra moisture and b) due to the heating in buildings, my nose is always clogged up and I can barely smell anything ~ haha  I also love this product because it has a pump applicator😀
  • Innisfree The Green Tea Seed Serum  Memebox   ~ amazon ~  Innsifree ~ I used this product last winter and when Memebox had it in their store the past month, I picked up another one.   This is a nice serum, it helps me keep my skin moisturized without feeling greasy and it doesn’t break me out (a win right there)  It is a classic skincare product for me.   Innisfree has 4 green tea lines ~ Fresh = oily skin, Balancing = combo skin, Moisture = dry skin.  This serum is good for all 3 skin types as it is the green tea SEED line ~ which is part  of their special moisturizing and nourishing care line.
  • Innisfree #112 Scotland Check from Tartan Check Collection  cosmetic-love ~ eBay ~ testerkorea  No, it is not green tea, but this is a great deep blackened green nail polish with a creme finish.  It is perfect for winter ~ I feel like it should smell like pine trees!   The Tartan Check line has some great shades, I also purchased a deep navy blue and a burgundy shade as well.  I might have to do some of those nail designs when I am feeling bored!
  • The Tao of Tea Genmaicha Green Tea & Toasted Rice  iHerb  ~ amazon   This tea is mild, but you can steep it longer if you like a deeper taste.  I love the nuttiness that the toasted rice brings to the green tea flavor
