[The Face Shop] – Lovely Me: Ex Pore Ghassoul Mask

imageOOPS! Sorry I missed 2 weeks of posts. I just got lazy the first Sat, and then I was in San Diego for the 2nd, so….I have nothing to say for myself. I am sorry T_T I’ll make it up with fluffy panda pictures next week! I promise! (that probably doesn’t mean anything now T_T)

Anyways, on to the topic at hand. So I got this a while back from ebay for $13.59CND. I won’t recommend the seller though, because I had some issues with the shipping. It took them 3 days to ship after I paid, and I had to email to ask about it.

I had originally wanted to purchase only the Jeju volcanic clay mask, but just can’t resist the adorable packaging!! Can you?

I didn’t have high hopes for this thing. It’s a clay mask, and they never do much except maybe reduce oil. But this mask didn’t even do that. It smelled nice, and was easy to wash off, that’s about all the pros I can give you. It did absolutely nothing for my pores, though from the description it seems like it’s suppose to shrink or at least clean the pores. Nope didn’t do that either.  Definitely not worth repurchasing. But damn that packaging is just adorable!

For those interested, here’s the list of ingredients:

Here’s the texture of the clay mask. Nothing special really.

So a 2/5 for this baby, mainly for that cute packaging.

[Etude House] – Wonder Pore Clay Clear

This was something I had purchased with the collagen massage gel from Etude House. I wanted something for pore cleaning. I am having a lot of issues with my pores lately, so I had been fairly interested in this sort of stuff.

Packaging: it came in a plastic jar with a spatula for hygienic digging I suppose.

The content was a bit foamy, and collapses once you start spreading it on the face and turns into regular clay mask type of texture. But if you leave it alone (in the jar) for a bit it foams up again. I’ve used up pretty much half of the jar, but every time I open it, it still looks the same with the product up to the rim.

The product smells like clay, it’s not a particularly pleasant scent, nor a terrible scent. It dries hard, and is difficult to wash off. Kind of feels like a scrub when I am washing it off.

The effectiveness of this clay is meh. It does dry out the skin (as in take away the oil that supposedly produces blackheads and whiteheads). I don’t read Korean, but the pictures on the box was a bit misleading, it looked more like it would clean out the pores, but I don’t feel like it does. I give it a 5/10 also. Not something I would repurchase. I am, however, looking into “Jeju volcanic pore clay mask” from Innisfree. I think I will try that out too. I wish I can find my Daiso charcoal peel mask though…the Korean daiso does not sell them. If I find a Daiso this time in Japan I will buy one. (oh yeah did I forget to mention I am going to the Kansai area of Japan?)

Until next time 🙂
