It had been a long time since I used a Clay Mask on my face. Since coming over here in Seoul, I had been comfortably using sheet masks as they are easy to apply and less messy to remove.
Once on an afternoon out with a friend in Myeongdong, we went inside an Innisfree store and she got an Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask. I wanted to try it myself and got one, too:
Company Description of the Volcanic Scoria clay mask:
This pure and rare ingredient, formulated from solidified lava caused by volcanic eruptions in Jeju Island, absorbs impurities and sebum that are deeply embedded within skin pores.
You’re supposed to put this on your face after cleansing and refining skin with toner. Just let it stay on your face from 10-15 minutes and rinse it off with lukewarm water.
I have used it several times already and I am comfortable with it. I can’t really say that it leaves my skin totally light and feeling-free of pores but I do feel cleaner afterwards. More importantly, I don’t get reactions from it.
So, I am sticking with this clay mask and shying away from sheet masks for awhile.
