Hi there, hope the week has been going smoothly for you!
Today I am back and reviewing another blackhead remover nose pack, I have reviewed the Etude House version couple of weeks ago. It was a OK product but did not impress me too much.
The product under review is the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Nose Pack. I love Innisfree products, my favourite one is the Volcanic Clay pore pack (review here). It is absolutely amazing, it lets my skin breathe after use as it feels like most of my pores are clean and clear! So I had high hopes for this Jeju volcanic nose pack!
It is plain and factual, nothing fancy nor cute for which I do not actually mind at all. The paper packet that the nose strips come in is made of paper and recyclable.
The product is made for nose, chin and forehead use. The company did not add any cutting into this for shaping. I do prefer some shaping so it can stick to my nose slightly better.
The strip does adhere well to the nose but your nose has to be thoroughly wet for this to happen! The beige colour strip looked like a huge plaster (band aid) on my nose while in use.
1. The Jeju volcanic clay treats pores, removing blackheads and impurities
2. It can be used on various areas of skin concerns, including nose, forehead and chin.
3. Lavender and aroma scent comfort your mind and body.
Official description of the scent is lavender but it smelled more like herbal medicine to me. It is not an attractive scent to most.
To use (official usage instructions):
- After cleansing, thoroughly wet your nose.
- Peel off the transparent film on the back of the mask and attach it to the nose starting from the center, gently pressing the sides.
- After 10~15 minutes, when the mask completely dries, gently peel off the mask starting from the edge.
- After removing the sheet, even out the skin with the toner.
(Recommended use: 1~2 times per week on the forehead,nose and chin)
My take on the product
The nose pack adheres well to the nose area, and covers a pretty large area of the nose. But it did not get all the blackheads out, I believe I might need 2 of these instead of 1 of the Etude house nose pack for the job!
Comparing Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Nose pack to Etude House Green Tea nose pack, I do prefer the Etude House as it is gentler but still effective. The scent on the Innisfree nose pack is way too annoying for me.
Innisfree products are kinder to skin, so it could be a trade off? I will stick with my Super volcanic clay pack for unclogging pores and continue with my trusty Biore nose strips for blackheads!
Price: $7 free shipping from Amazon or £0.69 from Innisfree.com plus postage
