Review: Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

This mask is not just an ordinary clay mask but it contains volcanic clusters from Jeju Island, Korea, scoria and green complex.

Volcanic clusters are the harden lava from a volcanic eruption. Its naturally anti-bacterial, detoxifying, purifying and moisturizes. It a rare and pure ingredient that also helps to absorb sebum and impurities more powerful than red clay and mud.

This mask is recommended for removing blackheads and dirt, uneven and dull skin and troubled skin such as oiliness and acne.

I like the cute stubby jar that contains 100ml of the mask and I won this mask from Korea Cosmetic’s Facebook event quite a while ago. This mask is packaged with 100 % recycled paper, Tamra(another name for Jeju) paper labels made of tangerine peels, recyclable and low-carbon generating light-weighted container.

The information on the label printed is all in Korean except their website and only from the website I’ll be able to understand what the product does more. I can’t read Korean ;( .

When it comes to clay mask, I would imagine that it should be thick and green in color but this is different! This mask is in very light earthy grey-ish color and of course, its very very thick. Although the texture is extremely thick, it wasn’t difficult to spread the mask on my face at all. I use a spatula to scoop the mask from the tub (hygienic method) and I don’t have to scoop too much, just the amount shown from the image above. The width of the spatula is only at 1.4cm, so you could imagine how much I use. It’s economical!

Upon applying the mask, it doesn’t look  earthy colored but grey-ish. Can’t you believe that I only use the spatula to spread it all over my face?  I know its not very even but it proves that the mask spreads easily on face despite of its thick texture.

It smelt like…you know the clay that people craft to make pots, bowls and vase? Yeah it smelt just like that, nothing too funky.

Here’s the result of using it, from the image you can’t really tell the difference but I can say that I love this clay mask so much. Let’s see the close up.Can you see how polished my skin looked on the after using the mask? I notice that my enlarged pores on my cheeks shrinked for a bit and acne scars are less visible. The mask seems to removed a lot of my dead skin, hence the polished looking skin! My skin is less oilier too. It may not the best ever to totally remove all my skin impurities but this is quite a good one! However it doesn’t really remove my blackhead as much but it didn’t leave my skin dry, pretty moisturized.

Currently its not available in Malaysia yet, however if you are interested you could look for it in Innisfree website. They allow online purchasing and if I have not mistaken, it’s selling for 12,000 won.
