Hi Readers. I hope you are well. This month’s product review will be Innisfree’s Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam.
As the weather gets sunnier and warmer in Toronto, I find myself putting on an extra step in my normal routine…a legitimate sunscreen…not just what’s in my BB cream. With that said, I find that I need something a little extra at the end of my day to remove the residual make-up and moisturizers that wasn’t removed by my make-up remover. I had finished the Innisfree Green Tea Pure Cleansing Foam and started using this product.
First off, not sure if it is a typo but in a smaller font on the front it says, “Purify pores and leaves skin dull-looking”. Last time I checked, most people want bright-looking skin, not dull-looking skin. What happened Innisfree editor?
This product has a very generic fresh scent, with a hint of floral. I quite enjoy it. The product comes out like a cream with little bits of red clusters, which I assume are the volcanic-parts. They are very tiny and not too many of them are disbursed throughout so don’t worry about it being a harsh exfoliant. A little bit goes a long way. I use it daily and haven’t felt that it is drying or too rough on my skin.
Once you wet your face, squeeze a dollop (the size of a dime) into your palm and work into a lather then rub all over your face. Finally, rinse off with water and pat dry. I find that this cleansing foam is really rich and foamy, more so than the Green Tea Pure Cleansing Foam. I have been using it for about 3 weeks (twice a day). I can’t say that I have see my pores reduce in size or that it is cleansing my pores. I think you would need a very high-tech microscope to explore deeper, but what I can say is that I really enjoy how clean my skin feels after using this product. I think it is slightly softer because technically I am exfoliating daily (due to the volcanic clusters). I even find that on the days I don’t use a make-up remover, that this cleansing foam does the job equally well. But beware of rubbing the clusters too close to your eyes when attempting to get your eye make-up off. Be gentle. Lastly, I don’t find that this product dulls my skin. Instead, I might actually claim that it brightened it.
I would definitely recommend this foam cleanser 🙂
You know how I’ve recommended washing up before bed? This is a linking-tip. Wash your face before and after working out. I suggest washing your face before working out, especially for those of you who wear make-up. The reason is, as you are working out, your pores are expanding, which means that your make-up and other impurities are melting into your pores. That’s gross. Of course, washing up immediately after your work-out with a gentle facial cleanser will help to wash away the sweat built up during your work out. Thinking on a budget and being cost-effective, this is where I would recommend any generic, affordable facial cleaner to do the job. If you work out as often as I do, washing your face an extra two times a day will make you go through a regular size of your facial cleansers much quicker. Think and spend wisely. If you are only going for a quick clean, go with something affordable and leave the deep cleaning cleansers at home to get into the nitty-gritty.
