About the product

What Is It:

Ever wonder what kind of skincare a mermaid would use? We think it’s Innisfree’s Jeju Lava Seawater Essence!
Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Essence is packed with precious volcanic nutrients, minerals, and lava seawater from the famous Jeju islands of Korea. This deeply hydrating essence completely revitalizes your skin, delivering encapsulated ceramides to strengthen your moisture barrier.
This popular Innisfree essence contains 84.5% mineral-rich Jeju sea water, which has been filtered by Jeju volcanic bedrock over hundreds of thousands of years. The minerals found within this volcanic rock strengthens three types of moisturizing factors, as well as naturally hydrating factors, to build up a strong, resilient moisture barrier. The mega-dose of this sea water makes for a lightweight formula with all of the punch of a heavy essence and none of the sticky residue, making it a perfect pre-makeup priming product!
Give your moisture levels a boost, help fight against early signs of aging, and dazzle like only a mermaid can!

Our insight:

See what Jude Chao of Fiddy Snails has to say about this “mermaid potion”:

“Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Essence is a lightweight and extremely slippy essence that glides like a leaping manta ray smoothly over my skin, then sinks in without a trace like that same manta ray when it dives beneath the waves.”

How to use:

Pump 1-2 times at the essence step of your skincare routine and gently apply it all over the face and pat into the skin.
