If your familar with Korean skincare products and brands, most of you will be aware that both of the Innisfree volcanic skincare collections are very popular (i.e. the Jeju volcanic range and the super volcanic range). Based on their popularly and encouraging advertisments, I purchased the ‘Jeju volcanic pore clay mask’.
According to Innisfree, the mask ‘intensively adsorbs sebum and clarifies skin pores’ with the use of ‘volcanic scoria’ (- in basic terms its a formulation from solidified lava sourced for Jeju Island).
All you have to do is evenly apply the mask to your face, after cleansing and toning. Wait 15 minutes; then rinse with lukewarm water.
After using the product only one time, my face felt smooth, was free of sebum & my pores reduced in size. Despite the fact that alot of natural oils were removed from my skin, my face didn’t lose hydration.
The only downside to the product is that it doesn’t remove many blackheads like most clay masks do.
I found that cleansing, then steaming your face with a hot cloth or over a bowl of hot water enables the mask to work better than cleaning alone.
The product is suitable for all skin types, but it will be mostly benefical for oily and combination skin types.
The 100ml pot may seems small, but it can last a reasonable amount of time if used 1-2 times per week as guided.
I’d rate this product 8/10.
