Today’s product review is all about skincare from the brand Tosowoong. This review will cover 3 products, one with of which is a tool for blackhead removal and pore size maintenance.
Tosowoong SOS Repair Clinic Blue Marine Bubble Toner
Most noticeable of all, this is a jumbo bottle (1000ml) of toner that has an attachable pump for easy access in your bathroom; but comes with an additional separate 150ml container ideal for travel or simply dividing the contents of the main bottle. Its the first bubble type toner I have comeby and could simply be mistaken for a foam cleanser if you disregard the details on the label. It contains 5 key ingredients that make this toner multifunctional:
🌿 Spirulina (a blue-green algae) for soothing,
🌿 Seaweed extract for moisture retention,
🌿 Green Tea for sensitivity & skin balance,
🌿 Centella Extract (Cica) also for soothing
🌿 & Tea Tree for tackling imperfections as well as strengthening skin’s barrier.
The full, in-depth ingredients list is available in English here ➡️SkinCarisma.
The bubble formula supplies just as much hydration as a traditional moisturising toner, if not more, but its much easier to apply as it isn’t liquidy. Of course you can use a cotton pad to apply this, which is advised, yet its equally as effective it you adhere it to your skin with clean bare hands: it’s a time saving product. It certainly firms skin without a tightening sensation that is bothersome. If you are familiar with the toner layering method (sometimes referred to as the “7 skin method”*) for dry or dehydrated oily skin, this product helps you to achieve that without fuss. An added bonas is its skin brightening ability: making your skin look revitalised and healthy.
*applying the same hydrating toner 7 times consecutively; never use a toner containing alcohol or mattifying toner for this method as it causes dehydration and irritation. This method is not to be mistaken for the 9 step kbeauty regimen that requires 9 different skincare products.
SOS Tightening pore clinic – Pore Vacuum Cleaner
This is a skin correcting tool targeting blackhead extraction & for overall improvement of skin’s texture. Fortunately I don’t have many skin issues, but uneven skin texture has remained a concern. Since using this product (twice per week) my skin has become less rough in the creases of my nose and chin area. In my opinion it serves as an alternative to abrasive facial scrubs which aren’t good for sensitive skin. As long as you glid the vaccum over skin with the help of a non-comedogenic facial oil to avoid friction, its simple to use.
To prevent skin damage you shouldn’t concentrate it on one area for more than a few seconds as it can result in bruising and broken capillaries. For best results, I suggest you steam your skin beforehand to fully widen your pores in preparation for removing impurities with the vacuum. An added bonus, is that it’s conveniently rechargeable with the supplied USB cable so you don’t need to search for batteries that no one ever seems to have spare.
Heating gel pore brush
Here we have a self-heating pore cleanser. Apply it to your t-zone & wait 5~10 minutes for the comfortable warmth to devlop before rinsing it off with cold water to close your pores. The gentle silicone bristles don’t cause microdermabrasions and can easily be cleaned for future uses. For me I didn’t notice a drastic change in pore size or reduction of blackheads; however the gel helped remove access sebum with it’s detoxifying ingredients:
🌿 Tannic acid,
🌰 Chestnut shell extract,
🌱 Centella Asiatica (Cica) extract,
🌿 a tea tree leaf oil.
As long as you have healthy~moderately good skin, this product will be helpful for nose pore care in particular if used a few times within a week; although it may not be effective enough for major skin concerns.
