Green Tea Fresh Toner
Ratings & Reviews
| 20 January, 2021
I started using this 2 weeks ago, and I must say that I think this has become my favorite toner at the moment. This toner is designed for oily/combo skin, yet I find this very hydrating for my dry skin!!! I can also see that this calms my occasional purging and redness from retinol. I think this helps in controlling excessive sebum in my skin. This is also great for soothing out sensitive skin as green tea is known for having Tannins which has anti-inflammatory properties in them. In my opinion, this toner is great for all skin types. 💁🏻♀️✨ The toner has 80% green tea extract which contains amino acids and polyphenols. Other notable ingredients in this toner are Centella Asiatica extract, Allantoin, Beta-Glucan and Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid. Its texture is very watery so it is easily absorbed by the skin. It helps my serums to penetrate better. Also its fresh green tea feeling when patting on my face is everything!!! I am a very big fan of watery toners. I have a thing for them.🤣 It’s really soothing and hydrating. It has a dark tea-like color with a little tea and grassy scent which doesn’t linger too long. I also find the scent very pleasant and relaxing.
I don’t have any bad experience with this product.

I love to use toner in my daily routine. It's usually hard for me to buy a new one because there's a lot of good toners in the market. They have many different purpose and lots of unique ingredients. I choose this Green Tea Fresh Toner from Isntree because I never use green tea in my skin care before, so I got curious and decided to buy and try this toner. I already used this for more than two weeks now, and this is why I would recommend this amazing toner for you! ❇️This toner has a very watery texture. It absorbs super fast and does not left any sticky feeling afterwards! This is actually perfect for you who have an oily skin because it does not feel heavy or uncomfortable at all. ❇️ I really recommend to use this toner with CSM method. This toner succesfully reduce my redness and can helps to calm acne too. Of course it takes time to work, but I can see the result so I'm not complaining. This toner is also great for calming itchiness that I got when my skin is to dry. ❇️It smells like a herbal tea. Kinda remind me of old books too. It's subtle, nice, and calming. I personally love it, but I know some people who don't. It depends on your preference, really. The color reminds me of a freshly brewed tea, so pretty! But don't worry, the color would not leave any stains. ❇️ The formula features a blend of plant extracts to control excess oil and 80% green tea extract sourced from Jeju Island to protect, brighten, and further balance skin. Other notable ingredients include centella asiatica extract to reinforce the skin’s barrier, hydrolyzed hyaluronic acid to hydrate, allantoin to soothe, and blueberry fruit extract to relieve skin stress. ❇️ This product is free of parabens, pigment, artificial fragrance, animal ingredients, surfactants, mineral oil, alcohol, silicone and fragrance. ❇️ You can get this toner (200mL) for ±160.000 IDR. This toner is really worth your money, trust me!
And these are things you need to consider before buying this toner: ⛔ If you searching for a hydrating toner and you have a dry skin type, i would not really recommend this for you. It's great for calming and etc, but it does not hydrating at all in my opinion. ⛔ Because the texture is super watery, sometimes it's really hard for me to get this toner out of it's bottle without the product slips around my finger and just pouring on to the floor, lol.

liked it. It’s not very hydrating, but pretty decent. The ingredients are great and green tea is one of my favourite Ingredients in skincare. It’s got a very light texture, almost like water, but it really helps balance the skin. It feels good on the skin and I noticed some reduction in inflammation from acne.
The texture is too watery for me. I like to apply my toners directly into my skin and due to its watery texture it is a little difficult to apply

🍃isntree Green Tea Fresh Toner (200ml) 🍃 Price Point: ~USD$15 for 200ml (toner) 🍃 Key Ingredients: Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract (Green Tea), alcohol and fragrance free 🍃 Texture: lightweight, watery texture with brownish hue 🍃 Thoughts: The green tea line from isntree is really superb, everything from the texture to the ease of application is really nice. Easily a HG toner, especially for oily skin types! This toner has a brown hue with a strong herbal scent that I enjoy, and left a hydrating yet non-tacky finish. While green tea is the main ingredient in this toner, it is also packed with other really amazing ingredients like centella extract for soothing and willow bark extract for gentle chemical exfoliation. I have been using this toner rather consistently, and definitely have been noticing its sebum control effects, as I feel less oily throughout the day! (must be green tea doing the heavy work!) 💚 fragrance, Alcohol, eo free == great for sensitive skin! 💚 brownish liquid, high % of green tea extract (first ingredient in list) 💚 contains other beneficial ingredients, eg centella for soothing, willow bark extract for gentle exfoliation 💚 amazing for sebum control
🧐 may not be sufficiently hydrating for dry skin types 🧐 strong herbal scent may be off putting for some, but I personally enjoyed it 🌟 Verdict: 5/5 Overall, these are really examples of stellar products with green tea extract, and with all the extensive research conducted on this star ingredient, with benefits from anti-aging to anti-inflammatory properties, this line is really easy to recommend, especially for oily skin types as they are both lightweight.

How refreshing! It's the word that first appears to describe this toner. This is the first Isntree product that caught my heart. Lots of good reviews about this product on Picky so I bought it. The first impression is of course the unique texture of the product which is brown and watery like black tea in general. The scent is no less interesting, fresh as if you smell the morning tea in the mountains. (forgive my imagination) This product contains several antioxidant and soothing ingredients, namely Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract & Beta-Glucan. I've been using it for the last few months, with both palms without using the cotton pad since I'm afraid the product will soak into it and be wasted. As a result, the oil production on my skin is better controlled and my face feels refreshed afterwards.
Since it contains an astringent in it (Salix Alba Bark Extract), I only use this product 2-3x a week. I've tried to use it twice a day or almost every day, but my skin appears redness. I also don't like the texture which is too runny, so sometimes the product spills everywhere when I use both my palms for application. (I'm classified as a reckless person. 😌) Besides, the hydrating effect of this product is not what I expected. It is more refreshing to the skin as I mentioned rather than hydrating.

I had high expectations for this toner since it’s one of the most hyped products from Instree. Let’s just say I didn’t understand what the hype is all about. Don’t get me wrong, it has great ingredients and is an overall a decent toner! Very light, watery, and hydrating. I didn’t experience any irritation too. There’s just no “wow” factor for it to be hyped so much. I’m under the impression all skin types would appreciate this one during the summer season.
It doesn’t feel as calming and refreshing as my other green tea toner, and it didn’t control my sebum throughout the day. Oh and idk if it’s just me but the toner smells like soy sauce.

For the longest time, I have been curious about 🤎 𝑰𝒔𝒏𝒕𝒓𝒆𝒆 𝑮𝒓𝒆𝒆𝒏 𝑻𝒆𝒂 𝑭𝒓𝒆𝒔𝒉 𝑻𝒐𝒏𝒆𝒓 (rewarded by @go.picky and @isntree )and 💚 𝑩𝒆𝒏𝒕𝒐𝒏 𝑫𝒆𝒆𝒑 𝑮𝒓𝒆𝒆𝒏 𝑻𝒆𝒂 𝑻𝒐𝒏𝒆𝒓. So, I have been enjoying these two products in my routine to make a comparison. 💧 𝐓𝐞𝐱𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐞: 🤎 Brown and very watery consistency. It stained my white desk but can easily be wiped off 💚 Very mild brown almost to clear watery texture that seems to have been deeply brewed 👃🏻 𝐒𝐜𝐞𝐧𝐭: 🤎 A strong fermented green tea scent. May need some time to get used to it 💚 Mild brewed green tea scent. 💭 𝐓𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭𝐬: 🤎 I absolutely love this toner. It absorbs right into my skin very quickly. For the first 2-3 weeks, I used day and night on my left side of the face. My skin looked softer, calmer, and less red after usage. I think it provides just the right amount of hydration for combi skin but may not dry skin type. I also noticed this calms my breakouts very effectively. It is indeed a refreshing and soothing toner as its given name. 🙂 💚 This absorbs a lot faster than Isntree! I think this is suitable for the 7 skin method, but I have only done 3 layers so far. I used this day and night on the right side of my face. This is not as hydrating as Isntree. With 3 layers, my skin would immediately feel hydrated and moisturised. I think in terms of soothing, it is comparable with Isntree. They both did well on that! With consistent usage, it sure helped in controlling the excessive oil. I would say this is my favourite among the line. At the end of the day, both did amazing and I enjoy both very much. I will definitely repurchase both. I do find myself reaching out to Benton in the morning and Isntree in the evening. But, if I were to have breakouts, I will use Isntree in the morning to go with the @tiamglobal AC Fighting Oil-Free Aqua Cream just because they manage my oily T-zone and breakouts a lot better. The #skincareperfectpair & #perfectduo
Leaves a slight tacky feeling but goes away very quickly. Both have PAO of 6 months but I have no problem with that because I am very generous with toner. I always go in with a few layers🙂

🍵 Notable ingredients and aims: 80% Green Tea Leaf Extract, various extracts such as Centella Asiatica, Willow Bark Extract, Blueberry and Evening Primrose. This toner aims to regulate sebum production, hydrate and soothe the skin while brightening the skin. It contains no alcohol, fragrances and essential oils. 🍵 Texture and scent: This toner is quite brown and watery. It gets absorbed really quickly into the skin with no sticky finishing. It has a herbal scent that does linger on for a while, which might be too strong for some but I didn’t mind it. 🍵 Thoughts: I enjoyed using this toner in my morning routine since it feels really refreshing and kept my skin hydrated. I liked that it gets absorbed quickly even with 2 layers, and I can move on quickly to my vitamin C. I noticed that my skin didn’t feel as oily as the day progressed when I was using this toner.
🍵 didn't notice much brightening effects 🍵 strong herbal scent 🍵 product tends to build up in the cap 🍵 prone to staining clothes/towels 🍵 not super hydrating for other skin types

Key ingredients: This contains 80% green tea extract which is rich in antioxidants and aids sebum control. Other notable ingredients are willow bark extract, centella asiatica and allantoin. My experience: I totally get the hype around this toner especially for oily skin. Excess sebum? We don’t know her. The texture is very watery brown fluid and absorbs within seconds so, ideal for a quick morning routine. No irritations whatsoever and mildly hydrating. By the end of the day, I no longer have oily greasy skin so that means it’s working💅🏻. I have also noticed fewer breakouts since using this. This is also ideal for diy sheet masks, so love it even more
I dont have anything wrong to day about this product. Just love it!!

This toner smells so natural and herbal, like greentea that is so concentrated and rich. It gave me that natural earthy sensation while using it. Colour is brown. This is actually targeted more for oily skin for sebum control but i still enjoy using it. Texture: Lightweight, fresh and very watery. It is brown color. Scent: It has a pretty strong natural herbal scent. Smells like rich green tea! And i like it so much. It gave me cooling and fresh sensation, especially when doing CSM Method. No sticky feeling and it actually feels so lightweight hence the name: Fresh Toner. For dry skin, this might not be enough. But if you are looking for lightweight toner, this is for you!
Nothing bad about this product
