Review: Innisfree Jeju Bija & Tea Tree Capsule Recipe Pack ★★★★☆
Anything soothing/healing shan’t escape my radar! Innisfree is known for their bija products, they’s a whole bija range from cleanser to toner to balm. The entire line is targeted at troubled acne-prone skin that needs healing and soothing. Bija is a seed that helps with skin repair.
This wash-off mask comes in a capsule and there are 6 variants with different colored lids for different functions, which helps alot since the ingredient names are not in English. This bija and tea tree variant has a pretty tiffany blue/green foil lid and contains 10ml of product.
My skin is feeling pretty good today just a few post acne marks that need fading. I’ve cleansed, toned, and exfoliated my skin. Find out how I normally prep my skin for masking.
It was a challenge to tear open the capsule, I was grunting away like a tennis player. The scent that greeted me was herbally and grassy. I kinda like it. The capsule looked to be about half-filled with grayish-green clay.
Smearing the clay on my face was a dream. I’ve never felt such a blendable slippery clay in my life. There was also zero tingling, which I usually get with all the other clay masks I’ve tried, even the popular Innisfree volcanic clay. A little goes a long way so there was enough product for about 4 uses, maybe 5 if you spread a thin layer but I’m going to town with this since it felt so comfortable, absolutely zero stinging on my sensitive nasolabial area.
2 mins in and I started to feel some tightness, it wasn’t as extreme as most clay masks. I had this on for 15 mins as instructed. Rinsing off was also easy peasy, just a splash of water to get it wet and everything slides right off.
The capsule came with a slit for tucking in the lid flap and “resealing”. But it wasn’t air tight at all, so I placed it under my heaviest jar of sleeping mask. The new packaging comes with a plastic lid that snaps shut, which is a huge improvement from this.
There was a very slight tightness after rinsing, though not as much a right after cleansing. My skin felt smooth and calm. There wasn’t any visible difference but my tiny blemishes weren’t hurting as much anymore.
Below is a side by side comparison of the before and after pictures.
I’m going to use this everyday till it’s done to prevent it from drying out. But I’m happy to do that because it’s such a nice product! Check out more Innisfree reviews here.
