Pore prob?

One of Etude House's more popular lines is their Wonder Pore line. They're claimed to be the ultra pore solution. Packaging is super cute + refreshing. As for the scent, it smells very minty and is very cute (to me) haha. Texture is just fine for me heeeeeeeee. Okay im gonna highlight this 3 part: 1. Deep cleanse poresI feel that since this product doesn't have that many beads, it doesn't do that good of a job in exfoliating. It doesn't remove blackheads that well so I find myself using another clay scrub to exfoliate.2. Minimize appearance of poresTo start with, my pores aren't that big. The only times I see my pores are when I wash my face with warm water or steam my face. At these times my pores open big enough for me to be able to see them. I can't really comment on this, sorry~3. Control a large amount of sebumThis product has decent sebum controlling properties. On days when I'm just at home I don't get any excess oil and it manages to get rid of oil that has accumulated during a long day as well. The best, too :) Except that it's quite pricey for mee :( Well, anyway!!!! Hoping it would really make my pore looks smaller heee. Highly recommended!!! Butttt. Although I like the feeling after using this and the scent, I don't think I'll repurchase this anytime soon. The results are only okay okay and I wouldn't mind continuing on using this but the price is a bit on the expensive side. I might get it waaaaaay in the future if ever I need a cleanser and Etude House has a sale or if I can find it anywhere for a cheaper price.

Yadahantittoner100ml

tightens pores

Get this from Hermo. The smell very fresh and mild fragrance,no paraben, no mineral oil.  I have made a research on YADAH before I bought this toner.This brand claims that all YADAH is a range of natural skincare products and they are 100% free from artificial colourings.  Suitable for all skin types,even sensitive and troubled ones. Thats why I bought this toner and keep as a stock in my house once my skin getting sensitive and irrataiting ,then  I will use this.  After cleansing ,I will pour this toner on the cotton pad and wipe  my face gently.This toner is not oily. I felt fresh and not sticky after applied it.My pores getting smaller and tighten. The toner really absorb well into my skin.Soothe my skin when sunburn, less breakout now. I recommend this to those who have sensitive skin problem,even though the price quite high and just only 100ml but it worth it as it really works

Pore cleansing

This is a two step treatment to clear out blackheads and clogged pores. I use this mostly on my nose and cheek as that's the area of my face where I get blackheads. I no longer have major acne concerns, but my nose does get clogged sometimes because I have oily skin. This contains a clay treatment scrub/mask and a light serum that you are to apply twice daily to inhibit blackheads. The first step is a scrub that you leave on your face for 10 minutes. Then you wash that off and put the pore treatment cream on top. After these two steps my pores are very noticeably clearer. It's a similar effect to the Biore nosestrips, but it doesn't pull at your skin. It doesn't irritate, sting or dry out my skin at all but the cream caused my friend's skin to breakout. However, I highly recommend this to anyone who has blackhead/clogged pore issues.

Jeju volcanic pore clay mask original title

Pore Minimizing

What I love about this product is the packaging, where they use 100% recycled paper box. That was so smart. I like the clayish scent which is mild and soothing. I bought this product online and it is very affordable. I use the mask after cleansing my face then gently smooth over my face and wash it after 15 minutes with warm water. I recommend this to anyone who want to minimize their pores.

Etude house wonder pore freshner 500ml 500x500

Pore Treatment

Etude House shop. The blue bottle really attracting but truthfully I don't like the smell. Too strong the alcohol smell not my type but it does wonder to my pore, can see it becoming smaller just a week using it. Since it contains alcohol, it's a bit irritates on my skin, red blotches will form for a few minutes after applying it but no worries it will get back to normal eventually. I won't recommend this to someone with acne problems since it will make your pimples irritates and a bit of stinging sensation.

Tightens pores

To be honest, I didn't expect this toner to whiten. I wanted a toner that would tighten pores and give a smoothness to my skin. I have collected a lot of Loreal products over the years. I got this in a cleansing milk and toner bundle at a discounted price. I apply this over my face after face wash in the morning. My skin feels hydrated and tight but not uncomfortably so. However it is not a must buy toner, every toner gives these results.

Pore Saver!

I bought this product upon many recommendations from my friends and also the Youtubers. It is so much cheaper than the Benefit Porefessional and works the same too! However, the effect does not last long under hot sun. It melts off easily whenever I sweat. Otherwise, it stays for quite a long time when I'm indoor or under a room temperature. Suitable for indoor activities but not recommendation for outdoor events. Besides, it blended with my foundation really well! I do not need to use a brush to apply this. Only need to spread it on my nose pores and cheeks pores using my fingers. Might repurchase this again besides the lasting effect.

Origins13131

pores solution

I always love to try out any solutions that can help to draw out oil, dirt and etc which causing my pores problem. Origins is always one of my favorite branding, hence i trusted it a lot. This Origins Clear Improvement Mask claims that it is a deep cleanser with deep treatment, it helps in hydrating the skin, improving redness problem and extract the dirt from pores. The texture of it is cold, clay typed and very thick mask. I use warm water to clean out my face before i do the application, so that the pores are opened up and let the mask do the pores cleaning job. It can be applied easily and didn't take very much of the product to cover my entire face. When the mask is dried after around 3 minutes, I can feel the tightness of it. But i still will leave it for another 10 minutes for a deep treatment and cleansing. In fact, i don't enjoy the feeling of tightness but i believe that is one of the effect to make it works perfectly. After washing off, i can feel my dirty skin has been literally lifted of with instant result that i can feel my skin is more cleaner and softer now. I really satisfied with the results so far, and it did a superb job to my pores problem. I can see my pore problem has been improved and lighten after few used of the mask. Highly recommended.

Minimizing Pores!

This is a star product from Kiehl's. I have deluxe size, original size is selling at RM130.  I use this once per week, if i am using together with other mask, which means day 1 using this clay mask and two - three days later I maybe will use the Kiehl's cranberry seed mask. It is grey colour clay mask. Use it on damp and clean face. Apply a thin layer will do and let it dry for not more than 10 minutes (else it will make your skin very dry too!). After that, gently use warm water to remove, I need a towel to wipe away the mask as it can be quite stubborn, difficult to wash away (maybe you can use facial cotton too). Then, use toner to 'balance' your skin. I can see the effect immediately, pores are less visible. It can purify skin and minimize pores effectively.  The best clay mask ever! Small tip: If I am using this mask, I won't use midnight recovery at that night. Just apply a thin layer of oil free moisturizer will do.

Cover pores

This primer use before foundation for smoother complexion. Need to apply generous amount on big pores area only can cover them. First layer cannot, apply second. Usually I apply twice. It is a bit greasy but look fine after apply foundation. Pores will get slightly bigger once face got too oily. So touch up with loose powder.

Etude house wonder pore freshner 500ml 500x500

Tightens Pore

I bought mine from Althea because I wanted to stock up my toner. So, I decided to give this one a try because many people claimed that this product has improved their skin a lot! Also, many YouTubers had listed this as one of the "must-have" products. Personally, I do think it works. It has actually helped to tighten my pores. However, it can be quite drying for my skin, but I'd usually just settle the problem with a moisturizer after that.

Innisfree super volcanic pore clay mask   100ml 1

Pore minimizer

I got this as a free sample in Innisfree store. After few usage, I decided to buy the full size. It's cheaper than the other clay mask, only fraction of the price of Kiehl's Rare Earth Pore Cleansing Masque / Origin's Active Charcoal Mask, but provide a similar effect on the skin. This is a clay mask where you need to wait until it's completely dry. It absorb quickly and become tighter. Easily come off, especially with warm water. It may not minimize your pore on the first usage but it did "detox" your skin, drawing out the sebum.

Unclogs pores

The packaging is just a plastic container (no spatula, a bit disappointed about that). I It smells like clay (obviously) and it looks like a greyish-greenish colour. The texture of the product can be changed by controlling the dampness of your face but if you take it out of the tub, it feels like clay (the clay you use to make pottery).  I prefer to use if after I wash my face, just smooth it across your face, just out of the tub. A thicker layer over problem areas like acne and places you tend to get oily. But my advise is to either wash it off with warm water or rinse if off and wash again with your cleanser. This can be a friend or a foe, it you don't wash it off properly, it is going to clog your pores not clean them. Wait for it to dry properly before you wash it off, when you feel annoyed its time to wash it off (approx 10-15 mins)  Before I got this product, I had a lot more breakouts and much oilier skin. After using this, I found that I had a lot less breakouts and I love to use it right after i pop a pimple where there is an open wound (miracle worker). I would definitely recommend this to whoever has oily skin. You can use it overnight on a small part of your face, ie: on a pimple. It dries out the pimple a little bit.
