Review: A:T Fox Tea Toc Water Cream [TesterKorea Beauty Tester]

Hello everyone! Today I am going to share my review about my current favorite moisturizer to all of you, A:T Fox Tea Toc Water Cream, so let's get right into it.

First of all, let me introduce you to my most favorite online retailer for Korean-beauty product hauls; Tester Korea. If you've been following my blog for a while, you may remember me mentioning this online store in some of my reviews before, because I really enjoyed ordering from Tester Korea. They provides an impressive range of products from a lot of Korean beauty brands at a reasonable price, and you can even request them to stock a specific product for you. They offers a large variety of samples and deluxe trial sizes for sale as well. They also ship worldwide, but the shipping fee is based on weight, that's why the weight of each item is estimated on the product detail page.

For your information, this Korean brand originally started out as a tea and dessert cafe located in Hongdae, then they decided to launch their own beauty line, and this brand highlights the benefits of tea by blending it with their cosmetic and skincare products. Interesting, right?

This light gel moisturizer immediately cools, soothes, and refreshes your skin while tightening your pores. The oil-free gel type formula provides moisture while keeping your sebum secretion at bay.

They claimed that their 'Tea Toc' line is free from parabens, mineral oil, and artificial colors. This product also contains fermented green tea extract, aloe vera, chamomile, rosemary, licorice, Japanese knotweed, and centella.

Actually I'm a sucker for any skincare product that contains green tea, because there are many benefits in using green tea for our skin, such as antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antibacterial benefits.

This product comes in a box with a small spatula inside to scoop out the product, and prevent the growth of bacteria. The jar itself is made of glass with a twist-off cap, which is quite heavy and not travel-friendly.

When it comes to the scent, this moisturizer has a nice subtle green tea scent, and it fades away soon after the application. Well, the scent is kinda strong if you smell it directly from the jar.

This oil-free moisturizer has a thick gel-like consistency that applies smoothly without a greasy residue. It has a slightly cooling sensation and feels pretty lightweight on the face. However, it does take a bit of time for the product to be completely absorbed into the skin.. so if you expect to hurriedly slap moisturizer on while getting ready in the morning, this probably isn't for you.

I've been using this moisturizer every morning and so far it didn't break me out. Alternatively, it also can be used as a sleeping pack in the last step of your night skincare routine. My skin looked certainly hydrated, glowy, and brighter when I woke up in the next morning, and this product has helped slightly reduce the appearance of my large pores and redness on my skin as well.

Hope you've enjoyed this review! Thanks for reading and have a lovely day :)

See ya~
