Before you enter this giveway though, you might be thinking, "What is Innisfree?" Well, this post will answer your questions!

Innisfree is a Korean-based brand founded by Sunghwan Suh. All of their ingredients are from Jeju Island; Innisfree does not use any chemicals or preservatives in their work. Their name comes from the poem, "The Lake Isle of Innisfree" by William Butler Yeats. According to innisfree's website, the poem is about leaving an urban life behind for a wonderful oasis like Jeju island (innisfree).

Innisfree has four main pledges. The first promises "healthy beauty through natural ingredients," and the second focuses on inclusivity: innisfree is determined to make sensibly priced products for all skin types. They also want to provide an escape to Jeju island, much like the focus of the Yeats poem the company got their name from. Lastly, the company wants to "preserve and protect nature's vitality through eco-conscious narratives" (inisfree).

Innisfree's beauty philosophy is focused on all prevention, as Korean culture is as well. Instead of treating "problems," like fine lines, wrinkles, blemishes and more, innisfree hopes to prevent these perceived flaws.
