Innisfree Jeju Bija Anti-Trouble Facial Foam | Review

Innisfree Jeju Bija Anti-Trouble Facial Foam is a refreshing cleanser formulated with salicylic acid and *nutmeg fruits, which have powerful anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Combined with torreya seed oil which has an outstanding healing effect, it provides an effective relief for skin troubles.
*Fun Fact: The nutmeg is a rare ingredient that has endured 20 years of survival in the wild. It smoothes your skin and enhance the skin’s natural defense system.

5-FREE formula: Free of synthetic colorants, mineral oil, animal-originated ingredients, artificial fragrances, imidazolidinyl urea

It comes in a soft tube bottle with a plastic twist-off flip cap.

The opening is well sealed with a foil, so do remember to peel off the foil prior to use. Otherwise, you won't be able to squeeze out the paste.

It has a creamy paste and has a minty, herbal scent.

And when it comes into contact with water, it lathers up quickly and easily.

Usage: Squeeze out an appropriate amount, make into a lather and massage it on your face. Then, wash off with lukewarm water.

Step: Cleansing Gel — Facial Foam — Skin Lotion — Spot Essence or Spot Patch

Tried and Tested

Let's have a...

"Moisture Oil Test"

Here's the measurement guidelines for you to refer back to later:

*P.S. Analyzing Standards:
The standard value of moisture level is 38%++, 3-5 bars (normal to very moisturized).
The standard value of oiliness (skin type) is 3 bars (normal). - means balanced, which is neither too oily nor too dry.
The standard value of cells (roughness/softness) is soft - happy face.

BEFORE Cleansing:

AFTER Cleansing:

Skin's moisture decreased from 3 bars to 2 bars; from 38% to 36%.
Oiliness decreased from 4 bars to 3 bars.
Skin's cells (.aka. skin texture) became less soft. :x

- *Results shown are prior to toner and moisturizer application.* -

What I like about this cleanser is that it gives a minty, cooling effect during cleansing, which makes my skin feels really refreshing. It cleanses pore impurities, leaving my face clean but doesn't overly strip and make my skin feels too tight. Furthermore, it doesn't irritate my sensitive skin, which is great!

Unfortunately, to be honest, this Bija Anti-Trouble line did not seem to work out positively for my acne skin. I was getting more cystic acne (painful ones) after using the cleanser and toner and I have no idea why.......... FYI, currently I have switched back to Etude House AC Clinic line.

Bear in mind, our skins are different and react to product differently. So it didn't work out well for me doesn't mean that it might not work out for you.

Well, I'm not sure if you have read my post on 2015 January & March Haul. In that post, I mentioned that my friend, who is currently still dealing with acne, raved about this Bija Anti-Trouble line because it worked magically for her.

Here's the BEFORE and AFTER pictures of her acne skin:

I believe you can clearly spot the improvement.

So if you are having troubles with acne and are interested in this skincare line, go ahead, give it a try and see how your skin reacts. Who knows, it might work out for you. :)


  1. hey dont you notice something weird on your product, the text is "bija trouble facial foam" (without "anti-"), but when i seen on the text is "bija anti-trouble facial foam.I also bought product which has same text like yours, did we buy the fake one?

    1. Yo! Don't worry, the one we have is the latest version — 101% authentic. :) It was formerly known as JejuBija Anti-Trouble/Bija Anti-Trouble. Hope this clarifies. :)

    2. Just bought this and was worried about the same thing! Thanks for the review
