What is it?
It is an essence. Light, but thicker than the most essences. More of a lean cream type of essence that you pump out the nice sea blue 50 ml bottle. The fragrance is another beautiful feature to it. Fresh, ocean-breezy, citrusy at the same time. Nice.
A high-moisture barrier essence formulated with ceramide and Jeju lava seawater that activates the skin’s hydration power for firmer and smoother skin. /Innisfree/
This is actually an anti aging product that promises hydrated and plump, firmer skin.
How to use it?
After skin toner, pump 1 – 2 times and apply evenly to face.
Skin → essence → lotion → eye serum → cream → mist /Innisfree/
I sometimes, when it’s hot and humid, use it as the last step right after toner.
Sea Water (73.8%), Squalane, Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Methyl Gluceth-20, Pca Dimethicone, Hydroxypropyl Bispalmitamide Mea, Cholesteryl Nonanoate, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Orchid Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Mannitol, Sucrose, Stearic Acid, Adenosine, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/Vp Copolymer, Ethylhexylglycerin, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Xanthan Gum, Peg-100, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Disodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance
Star ingredient is definitely seawater (73.8%). This Deep Line is “less diluted” as it contains less seawater than the other Innisfree Jeju Lava Seawater Essence which contains around 85% seawater.
Seawater here is the hydrator and reinforces the effects of the moisturizing factors in this formulation.
The rest of the formula is emollients with botanical extracts. This should really plump a skin at least for a short period of time.
Who is it for?
All skin types. Dehydrated and sensitive.
Does it work?
Yes it does. It hydrates my skin; it makes it plump and firmer looking. The effect is not long lasting, but for a shorter period, it works perfectly.
The thing I am interested the most in is the fact that this essence really, really calms my skin and alleviates redness. It is light enough to think of it like a glass of water to a thirsty skin. It sinks fast into a skin and leaves no tacky feeling, nor any unpleasant residue on skin. True hydrator. That’s what it is. So automatically, redness caused by dehydration and dried out skin gets less prominent.

Antiaging effect claimed to it, also comes out of the good skin hydration. All that seawater emulsified with emollients does its job. Fine lines and wrinkles are less visible when skin is well hydrated and moisturized.
People with good, healthy skin maybe would say “Meh!”, but anyone who knows what I’m talking about (sudden dehydration, redness, angry, red skin, fine lines and wrinkles) would probably understand.
This is also one of those products that I didn’t have change of heart to it. I loved it from the first pat and I can still see that nice, cooling, plumping effect it shows to my skin.

This essence is no joke. It “feeds” skin moisture barrier and does it well enough to feel its doing both in and on the skin.
This is a good product. Not exactly revolutionary, but definitely on my repurchase list.
