Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask Review
The Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask* comes in a cardboard box, containing a plastic jar with a seal AND a lid to keep the mask wet and smooth for use. However, it doesn’t come with a spatula so I usually use a couple q-tips to get the product out to use. The clay this mask contains Volcanic Clay from Jeju Island, an island in Korea famous for its volcanic mud healing properties. If you look at the mask closely, you can actually see little black specks of volcanic ash – so cool!
The directions say to leave it on for 15-20 minutes – I found that the mask did dry in this time frame anyway. I found that this mask didn’t oil spot on me either, which I also didn’t like because it made me think it wasn’t working. When I rinsed this off, I realised just how emollient this mask was.
I was pretty shocked that this was actually able to reduce nose and cheek pore appearance, considering it didn’t seem to do anything that my other masks did: harden, oil spot, or dry stiffly. The only thing that this mask didn’t do, however, was to affect existing pimples. I do find that most other masks will draw out excess fluid/sebum from new/recently popped pimples, but this left them fairly untouched.
