As you may have noticed, I hadn’t posted anything for the past 2 weeks. That wasn’t really my intention, but the holidays have been so hectic! My 3-months-old demanded a lot of attention, we went on vacation and just before Christmas the Dutch government announced another lock down… And I couldn’t find a moment to blog. But now peace has returned and I’m back with a new blog.
I used to hate it when my mother mispronounced things. For example her phone provider is T-mobile which she invariable calls ‘Teh-mobeel’.
No matter how many times we correct her, it just doesn’t get through to her. And now we’ve just kinda accepted that she’s saying it wrong.
Another example: one of het favorite singers is ‘Robin Williams’.
‘Mom, it’s Robbie Williams.’
‘No Robin was that actor.’
‘Is his name Robin too?’
‘No, ROBBIE is the singer and ROBIN the actor.’
So annoying and how hard can it be? Well pretty hard, because I’ve come to an age when I suddenly remember names wrong and I can’t get rid of it just like that.
I have this problem with the brand name Isntree. I always read and pronounce it as ‘Isn’t it a tree’. Yeah I know… I’m glad I bought the Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Gel Cream online. It would be embarrassing if I asked the cosmetics saleswoman: ‘Do you have the Aqua Gel Cream from Isn’t it a tree?’
I really do my best to pronounce it right. Especially because this Aqua Gel Cream is really good! This is one of those items that quietly does its job. It’s inconspicuous, you’d almost forget it’s part of your skin care routine. And yet it quietly does his work every day!
About the brand Isntree
Isntree is a Korean cosmetics brand. The name stand for: Island + Natural + Tree. Island refers to a nature island that hasn’t been affected by pollution. Natural refers to pure raw materials from nature. And Tree refers to a strong tree with good fruit and grows with their consumers.

What it promises
The Isntree Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Gel is an elastic moisture gel. It contains five kinds of hyaluronic acids to intensely hydrate the skin.
The cream is quickly absorbed into your skin. It’s refreshing, cooling and soothes irritated skin. The cream also refines skin structure and prevent dryness.
This gel cream is especially suitable for oily and combination skin.
What I think about the Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Gel Cream
The first thing that strikes me about the Aqua Gel Cream is that the packaging is quite large and that is uncommon voor Asian cosmetics brands. The tube is about the same size as a cream from a European brand (100 ml/ 3.38 fl. oz.).
I decide to use this cream in my morning routine, although I read that many people also use it as a night cream.
The gel cream has a white and transparent odor. And it has no scent! Which I like very much because of my sensitive skin.
I don’t know why this cream is called elastic, but I think because this cream spreads easily. I only need a little bit for my whole face and it also absorbs quickly. It isn’t sticky or shiny and my skin looks immediately very healthy.
And that’s also the trickiest thing about this cream… I only need a little bit and because it’s odorless I barely notice I’m using it. But this cream is really powerful!
Since I’m using this cream my skin is hydrated. Usually my skin has a hard time in the winter, but my skin is still not dry and irritated. Every winter my skin is flaky, tight and red and this winter it is not. I’m getting used to it. And because this cream doesn’t stand out, I almost forgot I owe this to this cream.
So I have to admit that I’m using this cream for a while now and usually I can’t wait to write a review when I have a new product. But I had kind of forgotten about this cream. And that’s so unfair, because it really does what it promises!
The cream would be especially suitable for oily and combination skin, but I think this cream is suitable for every skin type. I have dry and irritated skin myself and this cream works perfectly for that too.
So if you are looking for a lightweight cream that is very economical to use and at the same time hydrates your skin to the max then the Hyaluronic Acid Aqua Gel is your next bff!
