This product is supposed to help with pore cleansing, skin soothing, and skin elasticity. Below are it’s main ingredients and effects:
Now, let’s look at what I think of the product.
I have experience with some pore masks as well as clay masks, overall, I can say I’m a fan of these kinds of masks as my pores are quite large (which I’m really sad about). To read more about my skin, you can read it here, so you can compare yours to mine and see if this product could give you similar results with mine.
The packaging of the product is simple and sleek. I don’t really have too much to say about it, but it does look pretty nice.
The texture of the product is buttery smooth, so it applies smoothly. Smoother than the ones I have tried before. The consistency of the product is also quite thick and it doesn’t really smell nice in terms of having fragrance and what not, it just kind of smells like an earthy musk. It’s alright to me.
Particularly, when applying the mask on, you get this tingling feeling that is supposed to feel hot/warm on your skin. I do not particularly like this feeling at all as it reminded me of when my skin will feel like it’s burning when I’m using a sheet mask that isn’t suitable for my sensitive skin. I know for sure that the mask is this way as I have asked some friends to try it out too, and they agree with the feeling. This burning sensation does die down after the mask is drying/dried. The picture above shows how the mask is like while it is still not dry.
One the side not, unlike most pore masks I’ve tried, this one doesn’t try very hard. Usually, after using a pore mask, my skin would feel very tight and I won’t be able to move it much. But, this one just feels fine. The picture above shows the mask when it is dried.
After using the mask, my skin does feel a lot smoother and softer. However, I wouldn’t say that the mask worked great. Some excess sebum has been absorbed, but my pore does not look smaller in any way. The mask was a little bit of a disappointment, I was expecting more from it, at least hoping it would do something about my pores. I personally think, if you have oily skin, you can give this a go and try out if it works for you, but I won’t really recommend it if you have sensitive skin.
VERDICT: BYE~ (5/10)
Overall, the product has a buttery consistency that spreads easily. It is very easy to apply, and it doesn’t dry really tight on the skin when dried. It absorbs som excess sebum but does not tighten pores whatsoever. It has this burning sensation on my skin when applied but goes away when it’s dry. I would suggest oily skin types to give this mask a go, but for more sensitive skin, it’s a no go for me. I’m a little disappointed in this product; however, it’s not that bad. It’s an ok mask, but I don’t think I’ll be repurchasing it.
