innisfree jeju volcanic pore mask review | 이니스프리 화산송이 마스크 오리지널 추천

The Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is a cult beauty favourite back in Korea, as I'm sure many of you already know. I wanted to give it a special shoutout and review today because I've recently returned to this product and have seen such amazing things happen to my dull winter skin! 

The mask is made from Jeju volcanic scoria, which is an ingredient extracted from solidified lava from Jeju-do. The mask is marketed to absorb excess sebum and prevent more oiliness, clarifies pores and draws out impurities.

The consistency is a thick paste, which is on one hand nice because it won't slide off your face, but also slightly messy to use without a spatula. It does dry quickly, though, which is always a pro.

Before and after shot
Before (left) and after (right). As you can see, the mask reduced redness in my skin and smoothed the appearance of bumpiness and enlarged pores. If you tilt your screen backwards, you can see the effects even more clearly. 

I had almost forgotten about this product in my drawers until my skin started acting up recently, and I have to say that I've fallen in love with it all over again. It leaves my skin feeling so soft and shows visible improvements in my skin after just one use. It is marketed as a product that controls oiliness, which it does, as I have tried this during the summer when my skin tends to go oily. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find that it works wonders on my flaky winter skin as well. It doesn't leave my skin feeling overly dry afterwards, which a lot of clay masks tend to do. I will definitely be repurchasing this product in the future.

  1. Love this! My skin has been suffering so much these days from the cold, so I will probably be checking this out.

    1. I feel you, girl! I'm currently living on the east coast and there's still piles of snow, and the heaters are all cranked up :( Is there snow where you live too?

  2. Wow, super late reply! I live in the midwest, so it's much worse here, I bet. It's been getting warmer though! I hope this weather will keep up because I am so done with winter!

    1. Yes, it was also warmer this week over here! A couple days ago it was nearly 60 degrees, which was totally's now back to 40 (but for us folks, 40 is like summer, right? ;-) can't wait for spring (and then summer) to officially come!
