Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream

Today I bring you a much overdue review of one of my favorite new skincare item: the Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream. I am usually more of a lotion or gel-cream kind of girl, but this product is so lovely that I could not resist purchasing the full size after using up my sample.

Basically this is an anti-aging cream that claims to have five different effects to combat visible signs of ageing. The antioxidants in the orchid extract will help smooth wrinkles, firm, brighten and nourish the skin while also tightening your pores. The claims are pretty big, but I found that this cream performs really well.

The cream is a bit rich (hence the name) but it melts into your hands once you warm it up and it applies easily. I have combination skin so, it is a bit much too use in the morning when the weather is warmer because it takes a while to fully penetrate. So right now I only use it at night, but in the winter it was lovely to use in the morning as well. If your skin is on the dryer side, I think you could use it twice a day without any problem. Innisfree offers a gel cream version (here), which would probably be better suited for this season. I am quite tempted to get a jar myself once I finish up other moisturizers.

Now let’s talk about the results I experienced with the Orchid Enriched Cream. I am not at an age where wrinkles are an issue, but the moisturizing and nourishing effects of this cream are so amazing that I am sure they can help minimize the appearance of fine and dehydration lines. I also noticed that my skin looked brighter and felt more plumped in the morning. As for the pore tightening effects, I did not notice any, but the texture of my skin was more refined and any inflammation was soothed.

I was very impressed by this cream, the texture is great and it feels lush when you apply it. The light floral orchid scent is divine, turning my skincare routine in a relaxing spa-like experience. I will for sure try other products from the range (here) and I believe most would enjoy using this product and see positive results.

You can get the Innisfree Orchid Enriched Cream on their website and you can also purchase a sample of it here


  1. Im going to stuydy in Japan this march. Does this intense cream will do a great job since I have dry skin, first time going to 4season country?

    1. Hi, well for me the enriched cream is great on my combination skin especially in the winter, it feels like it really protects it. In the summer however, it's a bit much when my skin is oilier. Depending on how dry your skin is I think it would be good (I really enjoy it anyway), there is also a richer version called the Orchid Intense Cream but it is too much for my skin. I hope this helps and good luck on your studies in Japan!!

  2. hi, can i know this cream can apply for everyday ?

    1. Yes it can be used everyday, it works great at night but it's also good during the day if your skin is more dry.
