My beauty journey with innisfree began last year with its pore-focused Volcanic Clay series and moisturizing Jeju Sparkling Mineral skincare. And now I'm trying out its recently-revamped Jeju Orchid line in new packaging, and it has introduced 3 new items into the line, making it a total of 8 products now in the family of Jeju Orchid.
Well, you may not be aware that innisfree Orchid Line has always been popular since its launch and also made it to the top 10 consumers' favourites. Previously, it only consists of signature cream range that tackles anti-aging and skin firming. But now, it has toner, lotion and essence to complete the regime.
Thank you innisfree for sending me such a lovely bouquet prior to our beauty date!
I heard some say "You are too young for anti-aging!", well it is actually a misconception by many. Skin aging is irreversible, but there is always something we can do to slow down the process. It is mportant to start young before it becomes too late, and therefore I am here at the Orchid Beauty Affair and being pampered with an 8-course purple indulgent "meal" for the skin.
According to Mr. Johnny Nam, innisfree Malaysia Brand Manager, the main ingredient used is the Orchid Elixir, made of the precious orchid flowers grown in Jeju Island, Korea which is known for its vitality and ability to bloom fully even during winter. It is a powerful antioxidant that:
- Strengthens the skin's defense system
- Revitalize overly tired skin
- Makes dry skin radiant and achieve youthful glow
The recommended order for the 6-step Orchid line skincare regimen is
(1) Skin, (2) Essence, (3) Lotion, (4) Eye Cream, (5) Gel Cream/Enriched Cream/Intense Cream, (6) Massage Cream.
Let's begin our Jeju Orchid beauty affair!

skincare regimen. A thin layer of each is sufficient to prep the skin for better absorption later.

After pampering the skin, we had a series of activities prepared exclusively for us, based on the theme of orchids! There I made my very own natural Handmade Soy Wax Candle infused with Orchid 1220 Perfumed Diffuser. Hand-poured with 100% vegetable wax, it is bio-degradable, burns much cleaner with no toxin emission. Totally environment-friendly!
Ta-daa! Here's my handcrafted candle-- Purple and white; beautiful right?
Next was the orchid water color painting! Our names and orchids were painted readily for us, all we needed to do was to complete the painting of the wreath of flowers. I got really nervous when it comes to art, but I guess I had done a fairly good job here. Do you like my painting? :P
To complete the fun day of "purple indulgence", our tummies were treated with a hearty spread of purple-licious dishes from purple mayo sandwiches to deep-fried purple sweet potatoes. I really couldn't explain how delighted we were, looking at the lovely themed dishes.
From the food for skin to the food for soul, innisfree had really done a great job
in winning our hearts during this beauty affair ;)
Amazing products, lovely ambiance, fun activities and most importantly, great companions;
The afternoon just couldn't be better than this!
If you are looking for anti-wrinkle care, resilience, skin tone correction, nourishment and pore care all in one,
then innisfree Jeju Orchid anti-aging solution is the perfect choice for you.
