Real Fresh Foam Green Tea Review
By Marina Jurcic (marinablueeyes)
Hey you! I hope you’re having a wonderful day today! Today’s blog post will be about a product from Neogen, a Korean beauty brand, well known about their innovative products. It is about Real Fresh Foam made of Green Tea. And when I say Green Tea, I mean REAL Green Tea, 100% naturally brewed product with REAL Green Tea leaves in it. A couple months ago I wrote a review about their Real Fresh Foam Blueberry (you can read it here).
There are a few versions of this cleansing foam, each suited for a skin type:
- Blueberry: all skin types
- Cranberry: sensitive skin
- Cereal: all skin types, especially sensitive
- Green Tea: oily, combination, or acne-prone skin.
Now, let’s have a look at Green Tea Real Fresh Foam and my thoughts on it.
Gentle and hydrating foam cleanser formulated with natural ingredients and featuring 100% real green tea freshly delivers soothing and skin refreshing benefits with every cleansing experience. Its hypoallergenic foamy lather smoothly cleanses away all impurities, wastes, and makeup without any irritation, leaving the skin smoother and fresher.
The product comes in a clear plastic 160g/5.6oz bottle with a pump which dispenses the foam. Very user-friendly and easy to use bottle. At the bottom of the bottle there is a part with real Green Teal leaves in it. It retails for $19.
TEXTURE AND SCENT
This cleanser has a nice, fluffy foam. It seems almost delicate. Smells nice and fresh and not overwhelming. I use 1 to 2 pumps and wash my face. If I am removing make-up, I always use an oil-based cleanser prior, but if I am washing my face in the morning, this is the only product I use for that purpose.
Obviously, the main ingredient is Green Tea. As mentioned above, real Green Tea leaves are at the bottom of the packaging (separated by a filter so that the solid pieces stay at the bottom and not became a part of the foam). This makes this cleanser with active fermented ingredients which usually help your skin in case of hyper pigmentation, fine lines or dehydration. Fermentation happens when yeast produces enzymes and product naturally forms anti-oxidants, amino acids and vitamins.
Green tea is powered with antioxidants which prevent free radicals from destroying collagen, fighting signs of aging and calms inflammation. It is also great when it comes to brightening, calming, and hydrating the skin.
As there is a lot of ingredients mentioned, you can find the COSDNA entry for the NEOGEN Green Tea Foam Cleanser here.

Even though this cleanser is described as a ‘must try for oily, combination, or acne-prone skin’, my normal skin loves it. It is mild and non-stripping for my skin. I always continue with my skincare routine after using it, and it never left my skin feeling dehydrated or tight. Both this and the Blueberry Real Fresh Foam became so easily a part of my regular daily skincare and products I always seem to keep going back to. So, if you are on the hunt for a nice, gentle and cool looking face cleanser, I highly recommend trying out this one.
What is your current face wash? Do you love it or not so much?
