INNISFREE - Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask 2x Review
Don’t be fooled into thinking it’s a super drying mud that will make your face crack like the barren soil! INNISFREE - Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask 2x is going to change your perception of clay masks. Yes, it absorbs sebum and clarifies pores, but without the discomfort from tightness or stripping away too much moisture! We have asked our BONIIK team members with troubled, acne-prone, blemished skin to try this mask pack and here is the volcanic pore clay mask Innisfree review you have been waiting for!
INNISFREE - Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask 2x contains Jeju Volcanic clusters that are formed as a result of repeated volcanic eruptions. Due to this, the ash is rich in minerals and has amazing abilities to absorb excess sebum and impurities to detoxify the skin thanks to its porous structure. Enriched with walnut shells and AHA, this mask pack does not only eliminate excess sebum, but it also provides gentle exfoliation effects to slough away dead, dull skin cells, increase cell turnover, even out skin texture and eliminate comedones trapped within the pores.
This volcanic mud mask has a smooth texture that is similar to meringue, and leaves a refreshing, cooling sensation when applied onto the skin. For best results, it is recommended to apply gradually in thin layers as the product is not too heavy. Our BONIIK team members with combination skin found that this mask works well for them when applied on the T-zone especially on the nose where blackheads are often found.
In addition, the volcanic mud mask does not completely dry out or harden which makes it easy to wash off without leaving your skin feeling dehydrated or tight. Our team at BONIIK found that the mask made our skin feel fresh, clarified and smooth. We saw an improvement in the size of pores and skin texture, also we found that our makeup can stay on for longer durations without oxidising or turning ashy! This wash-off Korean mask also helps stop hormonal breakouts in their tracks by keeping the skin clarified and free of impurities.
How to Incorporate into Your Skincare Routine
INNISFREE Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask 2x can be used for 10 minutes at any time of the day. Upon opening the container, you will see a smooth, whipped paste-like texture and may be searching ‘Innisfree volcanic clay mask how to use’. Don’t worry! Here’s how to use our volcanic clay mask. After cleansing your face, dispense an adequate amount and apply an even layer on your face, avoiding your eyes and mouth. Leave it on for 10 minutes to allow it to soak up excess oil and comedones, then gently massage using your fingertips while rinsing it away with water. Once the mask has been washed off, continue with your remaining Korean skincare routine steps.
If your skin is on the drier side, but you suffer from stubborn blackheads that just won’t go away, our BONIIK team has a solution for you! Simply apply a small amount of Innisfree volcanic clay mask on your nose and do the same. After rinsing, use moisturising ingredients such as hyaluronic acid to replenish any moisture loss.
In just a few weeks of consistent usage, our BONIIK team could see visible improvements in our skin texture and the reduce frequency of breakouts. It should be noted however that clay masks in general can be drying, especially when left on for too long or used too frequently. As tempting as clear complexion looks, we would recommend using this clay mask once or twice a week to ensure that your skin’s moisture content is not completely stripped away. Our team loved the deep cleanse and exfoliation it provided our skin with and the visible reduction in excess shine to help makeup stay on longer!
