My Thoughts on Innisfree Brightening Pore Serum

Looking into the full list of ingredients for Innisfree Brightening Pore Serum, its active ingredients are Citrus Reticulata (tangerine) Peel Extract, Niacinamide, Hyaluronic Acid and 3-o-ethyl Ascorbic Acid. It also contains Vitamin E, Panthenol and Glycerin as well. The INCI list is short but overall it seems promising, the only turn off is fragrance and Alcohol Denat.

Packaging is just beautiful! One of the main reasons, why I wanted to try this, was because of it too. LOL... The design is clean and simple but its dropper was what caught my attention. Instead of the normal press head type, it comes with an auto dropper. Innisfree claims its auto dropper helps use a standard amount every time you apply it and that seems to be true too. I get the same amount of serum for each press. Of course, the metallic brown head caught my attention as well, it is just so pretty. I'm unsure if it is a glass jar or a ceramic one because it feels like it's ceramic. Honestly, I'm no good at telling but what I can tell is this will definitely shatter if fallen down. This serum comes in an eco-friendly packaging box and labels are in English and Korean.

It's a cloudy serum that's very watery making it easily absorbs into the skin without a slight feeling of stickiness. The serum sinks in within seconds leaving a nice plump feeling to the skin.

I'm not surprised with the strong citrusy scent as this serum does contain fragrance.

I've been using this for a week over now and I did not experience any bad reactions during and after application. It feels pleasing to use this, I love using 2 pumps each time and it absorbs pretty fast as well. I usually need some time to wait for serums to fully absorb into my skin before applying the next step, but for this serum, I didn't seem to need to wait. It does seem to be hydrating as well as my skin feels very plump after application. I didn't seem to experience any acne as well even though I'm acne-prone. However, I don't really see much difference with my pores and brightening effect as it claims.

Overall Thoughts
I feel this is quite a decent serum for me, it does give an instant feel of hydration to my skin but I can't really say it made major improvements. Probably I may need to give more time (I'll update this post when I see results) for now, I feel it does nothing much but I'm still going to continue to use it as I like how easily it absorbs into the skin. I'm actually quite surprised that this serum did not cause me any zits because I'm pretty sensitive to Vitamin C but this one didn't.
