Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask Review

After trying the Innisfree No-Sebum Mineral Powder, decided to try their Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask that my sister bought. Their website can be read in English, fully!! Something i really appreciate in this booming trend of Korea skincare and cosmetic, it really helps to know what the product do and how it works, some websites has a 'English' function but that only works on their headings whereas their descriptions an directions are in that would help.... Oh well, since Innisfree has provided us with really great pictorial guide in English, i'll be using them today!

The Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is geared towards....

It contains Jeju volcanic cluster which......

The Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is unlike your conventional clay mask, it has different applications! 

how the box looked like

Being environmentally-friendly

The box actually has description, ingredients and application directions in English!! Why can't all the other brands follow this example....*sigh

Surpsingly, the container is not glass, but plastic!! lols....all the containers in the adverts looked so...shiny.... 

how the clay mask looked like

The size of the mask is actually pretty small, 100ml. Take note before buying.

I initially thought that the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore clay Mask is for oily skin only, since most clay mask are meant for sebum absorption and regulation, but it seemed to be more suitable for people with oily, troubled and sensitive skin. Sadly, i don't really see much of its magic on me, no decreased sebum production or brighter skin tone. I think this clay mask would work better on troubled skin i guess? I don't have any breakouts or sensitive, i can't be the best person to give a verdict, so asked my sister about her views on it. She has troubled, senstive skin  with oily T-Zone (who couldn't be any more suitable!!). 

Her Verdict:
  • does not cause any break-outs
  • seen improvements in skin texture....softer skin
  • reduction in redness
  • surprisingly non-drying on the skin....(invidual with dry and troubled skin can use it too i guess?)
  • don't see much improvement in pore reduction
  • but  no reduction in sebum production     

My sister bought the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Clay Mask during a time sale at SGD13.90, but the usual price is SGD15.90. I asked her whether she would repurchase it, and she said she would....but i wouldn't. Well, everyone has their different opinion and so i guess individuals with sensitive or dry skin who are looking for solutions to curb breakouts and redness can try the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask, but if you are looking for oil control, i don't think this clay mask will be your cup of tea. 

Hope this post helps, thanks for reading!!
