I’m back for another blogpost this week lovelies, it’s Thursday and will be another weekend for the month of May. How are things going for you so far? The weather in the south of France is getting better, I’m so excited for summer to come!
Anyway, for today’s post, I will be reviewing this product that I’ve been meaning to share with you since the start of the year. However, I’ve been trying a lot of products lately that I completely forgot about it. It’s never too late like they say, so here’s my review.
Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask
This facial mask is from the brand Innisfree. Innisfree is a Korean brand who create their products from natural ingredients. They claim to be the first natural brand in Korea. They also use eco-friendly containers and harvest their ingredients in Jeju island, hence, the name of the product I’m about to review.
I’ve been hearing lots of good reviews about Korean skincare products, I have a friend that swears by them. Curious and wanting to try some for myself, I turned to Amazon and found Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask. For the price, it didn’t bother me that much, personally I think it’s the right price point for a facial mask.

Is it what it claims to be ?
I can’t really say since I’m not that oily, I have a combination type of skin and if I do have some excess sebum, I didn’t really notice any changes when I was using this facial mask.
This statement might somewhat true, after using this, my skin feels clear and bright, though, that it is not permanent …
Sad to say, in my case this wasn’t hydrating, during the times I was using this, I was thankful that I had to apply facial cream afrerwards, because my skin felt dry and tight.
Absolutely not! (personally). I have no idea why but ever since I started using this I started having small breakouts, all over my forehead and cheeks. It was not that visible but still when I look up close, they’re there. It didn’t help soothe the redness I have around my nose as well.
I’m kind of sad and guilty to give such a bad review about this product, even though I thought I was going to love it. You guys know how I’m obsessed about natural and organic brands, but I guess this one just didn’t work out for me. I sincerely wanted to order other facial masks or skincare products from Innisfree but to my disappointment, the shipment to price is almost half the price of my estimated order… And frankly that’s discouraging. Anyway I’m not giving up on the brand, if I have a chance to try the others, I’d be glad to!
Do you know this brand or this particular product ? How did it work out for you? I’d love to know !
