Trying out the Innisfree Cica Pore Clearing Color Mask (+ Pictures!)
Innisfree is a widely known Korean Beauty brand that utilizes fresh and healthy ingredients from Korea’s Jeju Island. One of the more popular ingredients is Jeju Volcanic Clusters. According to the Innisfree website, “These naturally porous clusters are packed with minerals and have the power to absorb excess oil and impurities from pores.” A product of their’s which uses this Jeju Volcanic Clusters and I’ve wanted to try for a while is the Pore Clearing Color Mask with Volcanic Cluster. The Cica Pore Clearing Color Mask in particular.
This line of products can be customized to create your own “facial” mask. With seven different colors and active ingredients, you can use one or seven on your skin at a time! The seven colors offered are: Green (Cica), White (Softening/Jeju Sea Salt), Yellow (Brightening/Vitamin C), Pink (Vitalizing/Pomegranate Extract), Blue (Hydrating/Hyaluronic Acid), Purple (Soothing/Panthenol), Black (Purifying). I chose the Cica Pore Clearing Color Mask for its firming and redness reducing effects. Watch the video below to see how to customize for your skin type!
Details and Review:
Item Claims: With the help of concentrated centella asiatica, this mask will help reduce redness, firm, and revive the appearance of the skin.
Directions: After double cleansing, smooth over skin and wait for 5 to 10 minutes. Then, rinse with warm water.
Review: The Cica Pore Clearing Color Mask is the third clay mask I’ve used from Innisfree. And, compared to the others it was my least favorite. But, that still isn’t bad because I loved the other two. This mask is part of an Innisfree collection that contains seven different “color” masks. I went with the Cica Pore Clearing Color Mask only because it addressed the majority of my concerns (I have sensitive/acne prone skin). After applying and leaving the mask on for 10 minutes, my skin appeared smoother and the redness on my chin and jaw line seemed a bit lighter. However, my skin did feel tight/dry afterwards so it may not be the best for those with extra dry skin. Additionally, I didn’t see any long-lasting effects from the mask either. Although, I partially blame myself. I believe I would’ve seen better results if I used multiple color masks for different areas on my face. Innisfree shows examples of how you can do this here. Overall, I will keep using this mask until I run out but I’m not sure I would repurchase. Personally, I like their Pore Clearing Clay Mousse Mask better. I would like to see how my skin would react to using the Cica along with the Brightening and Hydrating ones as well.
