The FaceShop New Zealand Volcanic Clay Black Head Clay Nose Pack Review



Used to use The FaceShop's Black Head Ex Nose Clay Mask whenever i'm too lazy to spread Shiseido's Naturgo Mask or White Mask for full face exfoliation. My tube of Black Head Ex Nose Clay Mask was running out and i saw that The FaceShop has another nose clay mask on their shelves!! The New Zealand Volcanic Clay Black Head Clay Nose Pack~!

Initially, I thought that these two nose clay mask are part of two different exfoliation series that The FaceShop is currently hosting. But, after checking their website, The New Zealand Volcanic Clay Black Head Clay Nose Pack is the new replacement.

 Texture-wise, both nose clay mask have white and thick consistency. However, the New Zealand Volcanic Clay Black Head Clay Nose Pack seemed to spread better, covering pores more efficiently giving much better coverage and grip on black heads. Less open pores can be seen on the New Zealand Volcanic Clay Black Head Clay Nose Pack compared to its predecessor. Other than that, the New Zealand Volcanic Clay Black Head Clay Nose Pack contains pore clear agent as well as natural mineral to provide smooth skin after usage.

In terms of performance, i felt that both nose clay mask were pretty much the same. Pity that i did not manage to capture a picture of the Black Head Ex Nose Clay Mask with impurities. The New Zealand Volcanic Clay Black Head Clay Nose Pack does removes a lot of black heads and white heads!! 


 The removal process does pack some punch, so do be prepared, probably a 6.5/ 7 on the scale of 10. The New Zealand Volcanic Clay Black Head Clay Nose Pack comes in a small tube of 1.76 oz (approx 52ml), which will probably run out fast since thick application of the nose clay is required for better black head removal. Price-wise, i bought the New Zealand Volcanic Clay Black Head Clay Nose Pack at SGD 5.90 during a Qoo10 promotion back then. Now, prices have risen to SGD 6.9-7.2 excluding shipping. You guys can also check out prices at local The FaceShop retail stores if you like to see the product for yourself =).

The New Zealand Volcanic Clay Black head Clay Nose Pack does leave my skin feeling superbly smooth, but it comes in such small volume and gets used up really quickly. I would rather invest in peel-mask that is applicable to the whole face rather than just the nose. Would recommend this nose clay mask to individuals with oily T-zone.

Hope this post helps and thanks for reading!!

    1. Hi Duong Vu, i apologise for the late reply! This is a peel-off product. I do recommend New Zealand Volcanic Clay Black Head Clay Nose Pack for as blackhead remover, unfortunately this product does not treat big pore.

      I have big pores too, my current pore care regime usually focus on sebum regulation and exfoliation. Cleansing is also very important, to remove impurities before they start clogging the pores up. Do let me know if you found any products that works in future =)

  8. I'm still debating to buy it, or not... I've tried nose strips and they worked. But it was quite paiful to remove them. xD
