The Beauty Wonder That Is Green Tea

2:55 PM Chan Zubiaga 46 Comments

When drank as a regular tea, green tea definitely is ahead of the game among other kinds of tea, simply because it's proven to have, if not the highest, one of the highest antioxidant properties.  It also is high in flavonoids, meaning it has anticarcinogenic functions. Green tea can also aid in weight loss due to polyphenols and caffeine. Thus, it's good for the health, and good for the skin, too. No wonder you can now find it in different beauty products.

I have used Green Tea facial scrub and mud mask by Watsons, and a Green Tea facial emulsion by Ellianto, all of which gave me splendid results.


Green Tea mud pack by Watsons
Let me talk about this mud pack first. This mud pack is very inexpensive and it can even double as your
 facial wash. The smell is so soothing eucalyptus, I guess and whenever I use I kind of feel very relaxing. I usually use it as an alternative facial wash, especially after a very tiring day. It cleans the face without drying it, just leaving the skin soft and supple.

Green Tea facial scrub by Watsons

The Green Tea facial scrub by Watsons on the other hand has a cooling effect. It is best to use it at the end of a very hot day when your face becomes so oily, you feel that all the dirt has sticked to every pore in your face already. It also has a floral and eucalytpus scent, however, I find the grains a bit rough, so make sure to scrub very, very lightly only so as not to over-scrub your face.

Green Tea & Chamomile face emulsion by Ellianto

Sad that I don't see Ellianto here in Manila anymore, but this emulsion is actually one of my favorite moisturizers. It has anti-aging effects due to green tea extracts in it, and it really gives my face a real nice glow. It's not heavy on the face, and can be used even on hot summer days.

So that's my list of green tea beauty products, and I hope to seeing more beauty products made of\, or has the wonder of green tea extracts.

I have never tried green tea beauty products but I do drink green tea everyday :) Seriously, I love Watsons beauty products. I can spend hours in the store just browsing around the store.

I am a green tea drinker for years now. I guess I'll start using beauty products with green tea as well. ;)

Pearl said...

I should try these green tea beauty products, thanks for the informative review.

Rae said...

Ang galing ng watsons noh? kung ano-ano na yung private label products nila. Ang ayaw ko lang is, parang rip-off yung packaging ng already existing products.

reese said...

sanna said...

I love watsons. Everytime I go back to the Philippines, i always want to hoard on beauty items! I still find myself better off using beautu products from the Philippines. This green tea line is interesting.

I'm using St Ive's Facial Scrub and I love it.

I remember my cousin who used to have many pimples and daily wash her face with warm water with green tea in it. And I can attest that it is effective.

redamethyst said...

I know green tea is god for the health but I have never tried it for the skin. This looks interesting especially that I am trying to find a more natural facial wash/scrub. I will try this soon.

zoan said...

Green tea is becoming a fad nowadays:) I haven't tried it on my skin yet maybe I'll check out the nearest watson here in my place:)

No wonder why that mud pack is so effectively because of green tea admixture. Who can dispute this claim for it's the wonder of nature: green tea?

based on your words I would love to try green tea beauty products hope it will give positive result for myself =)

ielenna said...

thanks for this info sis.

Samantha Lee said...

I'll check out the facial scrub. Thank you for sharing this.

I have love- hate relationship with Green Tea drinks due to the caffeine which causes Bad palpitations. Di naman Siguro mag palpitate face ko sa mga products Na yan haha!

aby ♥ said...

i love green tea. :)

Gelo said...

Green tea is in demand nowadays because of their countless benefits. Thanks for sharing this post.

Cintamuni said...

I actually agree with the caffeine thing, that's why I don't drink green tea often since it's got more caffeine than a regular coffee weird, but that's for the local or more common green teas in the market. Challenge is to look for a brand that has no caffeine in it, that's what my aunt told me.

There are many green tea products for sale here in Singapore and I personally love green tea. I feel that they are great for the skin.

I love green tea as a drink. I'll still check whether it's good for my skin :) Thanks for sharing!

I love tea. But green tea, di sobra. Hehe. Nice review sis.

shadz said...

So where could I get this Ellianto product? Love drinking green tea, but I dunno if I will want to lather it on my skin for now. XD

Green tea is good for the skin and the soothing effects come from the eucalyptus indeed.
