[REVIEW] Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

Friday, June 24, 2016

Just wanted to let my readers know that my skin is currently purging, Aritaum's Bamboo Charcoal Mud Pack's fault(read about the story on my Instagram - link) ㅠㅠ The product that I am going to review happened before the purging, I used the Innisfree pore clay mask a few weeks before using the Aritaum, so my skin looked happy at that time.

"What it is
6-in-1 Pore care: 
Shrinks pores + Controls sebum + Exfoliates + Deeply cleanses + Brightens tone + Cools 

Winner of 22 Global Beauty Awards 

1. What is the Super volcanic pore mask?

Jeju volcanic clay is made from minerals released by volcanic explosions in Jeju. It's categorized as a preserved alkaline resource and is effective in removing sebum and other impurities. 
(Contains 6,020 mg of Jeju volcanic clay) 

2. Strong removal of sebum thanks to the Super volcanic capsules 
As the capsule bursts, the mask exfoliates and removes dead skin cells. The AHA ingredient chemically exfoliates and smoothes out skin. 

3. Clear, Contracted, and Refreshed Pores! 
The strong absorption of sebum and cooling effect of the clay refreshes the skin and contracts pores.

What else you need to know
Super volcanic clay vs Original volcanic clay 
-Super volcanic pore clay mask: Great for treating pores! 
-Volcanic pore clay mask (Original): Great for controlling sebum!

Ingredients
Wash away pore-clogging impurities with Jeju volcanic scoria! 

Volcanic scoria is a pure, and fairly rare, ingredient formed from lava as it cools after a volcanic eruption. 

It has a powerful sebum-absorbing capacity and washes away impurities while moisturizing skin, leaving it cleaner and healthier than ever before.

Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask on mah face.

Texture: has a thick cream texture that is not hard to spread.
Scent: no scent.

During application
I applied the mask on my whole face, it dried into a darker grey colour within 10 minutes~ my face does feel tightened but not too much. No irritation during application but it can get itchy as it dries. I did feel a bit of cooling sensation too. No great amount of sebum was detected. It was easy to wash off, I still felt a bit of cooling sensation after wash off.

Results
My pores doesn't look tightened but I remembered my face being clean and sebum-free. I do not notice any difference in it toning my skin tone, but probably after a couple of uses. No breakouts the next day. I'd say that I am pleased with this product since it doesn't give me break outs and leaves my skin feeling clean, though it doesn't do much on tightening the pores. I think that the cooling sensation is perfect for those who are living in a hot temperate country like me. I have an unopened 15ml tub of this one which I've gotten from their Best Loved Collection, I'll be using that up and conclude about my experience with this product in a separate post.

Tip
I saw a comment somewhere that a person is using this clay mask as an overnight treatment for spots. I have an acne prone skin and I am curious to see how it will work! I will be trying that out tonight and share about the results on my Instagram.

My rating
4/5. Hope it would tighten my pores after using it several times!

Will I recommend?
Yes, unless if your skin is sensitive to dryness or the ingredients.

Will I purchase?
Maybe, I will have to finish the small tub of it first then I can decide whether to get them or not.
