Our moringa tree comes into its own; and notes on Jamaica's tea-drinking habits
Our moringa tree comes into its own; and notes on Jamaica’s tea-drinking habits
Over the years, I have posted photos of our beloved moringa tree, and sung its praises. In fact, it’s three trees, but they have intertwined over the years, so I think of it as one. Several years later, how have our trees evolved? Looking back at the pictures I had shared, I realise that their character has changed. They are not as pretty and fluffy as it used to be, fluttering brilliant green…

Discontinued innisfree moisturizers for oily skin that I loved
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Please bear with me while I give a little rundown on my skin type history:
Puberty to late teens – oily and acne-prone (forehead, nose, and cheeks)
Early to mid-twenties – combination to oily, acne-prone (T-zone pimples, enlarged pores and blackheads on the nose; hormonal acne on chin and jawline)
Late twenties to now (early thirties) - normal to combination, dehydrated, still battling hormonal acne plus maskne (no thanks to Covid-19), sensitive and may even be a bit dry, beginnings of brown pigmentation, though thankfully no wrinkles yet.
As you can see, I have to deal with acne well into adulthood. I am also used to thinking I am an oily-skinned gal. Coupled with living in the year-round tropical and humid climate of Singapore, I still prefer lightweight moisturizers even if I could or should use a more emollient one. After all, heavy creams broke me out just as fast as when my hormones went awry.
When I first fell in love with the scent and packaging of innisfree's Green Tea (moisturizing) and Jeju Orchid (anti-aging) line, most of these products were still too rich or unsuitable for my skin. Hence, I purchased the Green Tea Fresh Cream (discontinued in early 2018) and the Jeju Orchid Gel Cream (discontinued in early 2021).

I know it's no news that innisfree frequently discontinue or reformulate and repackage their items. However, it sucks when products you love are off the shelves, forcing you to search for a replacement, and sometimes, in vain.
Let me tell you the embarrassing truth, the reason why I only recently finished both of these tubs months past the expiration date of late 2020. I left my skin to dehydrate and become more sensitive during the WFH (Work-From-Home) season of 2020. I washed my face twice daily but only moisturized and applied sunscreen when I had to get out of the house.
I know, I know, it's terrible of me. So my skin decided to get my attention by breaking out hormonally, with maskne on top of it, after being seemingly healthy (aka normal skin) for quite a period.
Although I realize my skin now needs richer moisturizers than these compared to when I purchased them back in 2017, I still love their scents, how lightweight they are, and most importantly, they do not cause more acne outbreaks.
Tumblr media
The Green Tea Fresh Cream smelled amazing and had an immediate relaxing effect, was soothing and refreshing upon application. I did not try keeping it in the refrigerator, which (I read somewhere that) would increase its cooling sensation. It was transparent, watery and gel-like, much like an aloe vera gel. However, it takes longer than an aloe vera gel to sink into the skin.
In my opinion, it was great for hot and humid weather and spending time outdoor in the sun, but essential to layer a sunscreen product on top of it. It might have been a holy grail (HG) moisturizer for younger, oily-skinned peeps.
Tumblr media
The Jeju Orchid Gel Cream was a light peach-pink tinted viscous gel that applied clear. It had a sweet floral scent and a curious "bounce-back" texture. One's fingers or spatula caused a dent after scooping up the cream for use, but when one opened up the tub again and looked after some time had passed, the cream regained a smooth, perfect shape as if untouched.
It was more moisturizing and firming than the Green Tea Fresh Cream since it was an anti-aging product, albeit slightly tacky. Depending on one's skin type and preference, it may or may not be sufficient or comfortable in either an indoor or outdoor climate. It had no SPF included as well, so using sunscreen on top of it was also necessary. It was perfect for those who have combination-oily skin and anti-aging needs.
My Conclusion
I would still purchase both of these if they were still in production. If my skin got oilier, I would use the Green Tea for day use and Jeju Orchid for night use (since I do not sleep in an air-conditioned room), on top of toner (skin), serum and essence. In my current state, neither of them were sufficient when used as a lone moisturizing product.
While it's too late to stock up on the Green Tea Fresh Cream, I manage to purchase the Jeju Orchid Gel Cream, one full tub in 50ml and another smaller tub in 30ml (part of a set of Jeju Orchid line products). Why do I only stock up one and a half tub? Well, I have a few other moisturizers on hand to finish up, which I will touch on in future posts. Moreover, considering the expiry date, it's not practical to go crazy with the hoarding, as much as I am sad to see it go.

What’s left of our first batch of Kombucha Tea. We started brewing this about a month and a half ago. Small batches at first. The next one will be ready in two weeks.

This drink tastes like the 90's. As if you entered a room where cucumber melon has been spritzed. Yet I keep drinking it.

Among its many properties, green tea can help prevent diabetes because it controls blood sugar levels. There are many reasons why green tea has been part of Asian cultures for centuries. A drink rich in antioxidants and nutrients helps the body in many ways. Green tea also helps in strengthening the immune system and preventing infections.

Our immune system also can get worn down by many things typical of modern life like stress, toxins, lack of exercise, and unhealthy eating. This prevents our bodies from effectively fighting off sickness.
To support your immune to the system, we can eat immunity supporting foods like citrus fruits, garlic, broccoli, ginger, amla, turmeric, spinach, Tulsi, and  Black cumin . Certain seeds and nuts like sunflower seeds, Flaxseed, pumpkin seeds, and melon seeds are excellent sources of protein and vitamin E.
If your immune system is already weak, it is also necessary to take a certain supplement with key vitamins such as Vitamin C, Vitamin B, Vitamin D, and Zinc. You can also eat supplements rich in omega 3 & 6 fatty acids for your daily dose, as immunity supplements.
One such supplement to boost your immunity in the most hygienic way is GREENFIT VITALITY HERBAL DRINK READY TO USE  GREEN TEA CUP, JUST POUR HOT WATER… You may refill the cup up to 3 times for maximum health benefits.
