Review: Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay mask

Everybody loves a clay mask! I remember when I was a tween I used to love sitting with a clay mask in my pjs watching a rom-com and eating chocolate. The unfortunate thing is though, many of them can be drying. Today I am reviewing an Innisfree one that is quite popular.

I have reviewed a couple of other Innisfree products, but I will give a quick rundown. They’re a South Korean brand that focuses on using natural ingredients. I may review quite a few of their products, but I’m a fan of a lot of them. I think they’re a great brand with well formulated skincare products.

Price: 
$18.50AUD from Innisfreeworld

The mask is supposed to help remove sebum and exfoliate the skin (I’m assuming when you rub it off?)

The product is pretty thick but it’s easy to apply to the skin.

These photographs were taken 10 minutes apart when the product had started to dry.

How it feels: 

It’s thick and a little difficult to apply to the skin but it’s a clay mask so you can’t really expect it to be easy! It dries and becomes pretty hard to move your face, but not uncomfortable. It’s kind of fun!

Overall Impression:

I think this product is more suited towards those with normal-oily and acne prone skin. I didn’t really find it beneficial to my dry skin as there wasn’t any excess sebum to draw out. I did wake up with very smooth skin though! I think it’s a really fantastic product and would be perfect as a mask. I think it’s less harsh than a lot of other clay masks as I didn’t get that ‘throbbing’ feeling in my face when I applied it. It also felt like it cleansed my skin very well when I washed it off.

It has some really beneficial ingredients to the skin such as zinc oxide (an anti-inflammatory) and green tea (moisturising and anti-ageing).

All in all, I would recommend this product. I think it’s a great gentle alternative to many of the other clay masks. It doesn’t feel drying it all and waking up with smooth skin was lovely. I think could even potentially be used just on problem areas. I have a little pimple that I tried applying this to for 20 minutes before I went to bed. When I woke up in the morning it was significantly smaller, which was fantastic.
