Hello beauty friends!
Now I am gonna share about my experience from using a korean clay mask which is so phenomenal in 2017. What is it? As you can see from the title, it's
INNISFREE JEJU SUPER VOLCANIC PORE CLAY MASK
If you are kdrama lovers like me, you must have heard about Jeju Island. Yup, the beautiful island with a beautiful sea. If you don't know, Jeju Island is located in South Korea. So this mask is created by some ingredients which contain jeju's volcanic explotion. It contains 6,020 mg of Jeju volcanic clay. Whoaaa.. sounds scary right? But I am so interested to try!
They say it is the best mask that they produce.
It claims that this mask will give you a "Shrinks pores + Controls sebum + Exfoliates + Deeply cleanses + Brightens tone + Cools"
So let's see, does it really work as it says?
Yup, so I have been using this product for about more than a month and this clay mask is really doing a great job!
I have an oily skin and this mask reduce the oil permanently when I use it regularly like 2 - 3 times a week.
I am gonna compare the claim of the product and the experience that I have been through.
"Shrink pores" After using it for a month, I haven't noticed that my pores are shrank. But it's not big either.
"Controls sebum" I agree with this one. The oil production level on my face is really decreasing. It usually takes about 1-2 hours after doing make up til my face gets oily. But lately my make up stays longer (I don't use a primer on daily basis).
"Exfoliates" I feel like it does exfoliate my face. Why? Because I feel like the dark spot and acne scar on my face are slowly fading away. I am so happy with that of course :)
"Deeply cleanses" This mask says that it can clean your deep pores. And I think it does a great job. I feel like my face is really clean after using this mask. And then lately, I notice that there is no whiteheads and blackheads on my face as much as before because this mask really cleans my face til the deepest pores.
"Brightens tone" Since I am using a different products, I don't know which one affect my skin tone. It doesn't tone up but it does look brighter than before.
"Cools" Yes! It really has a cool sensation when I applied it on my skin. So refreshing, I like it.
How to use
After washing your face, prepare your face by using a toner. Then, apply the mask over your entire face, avoiding your eye and lip areas. Rinse off the mask with lukewarm water after 10 minutes. Don't use it longer than 10 minutes because it will make your skin dry. If you have a dry skin, better wash it after 5 minutes.
The texture of this mask is simply like a clay. It's not creamy, oily, or even watery. It's a bit hard. You better take the product with a special spoon for a mask. Avoid taking the product by your bare hands when your nails are long.

I think the price is still affordable for a best mask of innisfree. I bought it about IDR 190.000 (it's a package with the facial wash and toner).
The packaging is solid and cute at the same time. It's like a little barrel made of something hard like a steel lol. I don't know what it is made of but it is so solid and hard and safe.
I am not sure about repurchasing because I wanna try the color clay mask too! It's the same tho, but I just wanna try the clay which have a cute pastel color that I like. But I am sure I will definitely continue using clay mask from this brand.
