Hello there! for my first entry (beside the introduction) i will be reviewing about a product for removing black heads!
What is it?
The product name is Jeju Volcanic Black Head Out Balm from Innisfree and I got this balm when I went to Singapore last time. This Jeju Volcanic balm absorbs sebum and oil by dissolving them and removing them from your skin.
This is how it looks like:
//the packaging is made up of recycled paper and it is written at the bottom part of the box that soy ink was used for the box! :3 this box is really eco friendly~//
//The balm has a white matte color that feels like an oily usual balm when you touch it. The smell is not weird and it is pretty good actually.//
Direction (as stated on the box):
Use this balm before cleansing
- Apply an appropriate amount onto where blackheads are concentrated.
- Use fingertips to massage for 3~5 minutes
- Use cleansing foam/lukewarm water to rinse off
what DID I DO?
After I returned from Singapore, surely I got “dirty” face skin and I really excited to try on some new products as the result may appear more when my face hasn’t got some touch up from beauty products~ So before I used this balm actually I already washed my face with cleasing cream and cleansing foam as well as peeling scrub. But as the product said that it should be used before cleansing, I waited for some a few hours before I tried on the product.
Actually when I used the volcanic balm I honestly did not see anything coming! Even if i also used like a massaging glove for fingers for removing blackheads! So I don’t really know how to react at first. I massaged my nose area within the time range that is recommended by the product but I didn’t see clear result. I know my blackheads aren’t so many and it’s hard to judge this product just based on my experience. But I know there is an exact place where there are blackheads and when I tried to focus on that area, nothing happened.
However, indeed when I rinse the balm off my nose area, I can extract the blackheads out with my black head extrator much easier!
PROS AND CONS
- Good eco packaging
- Smells good
- Make it easier to extract blackheads with extractor
- Smooth skin after using balm
- Don’t really dissolve blackheads
- 3~5 minutes of massaging is enough to turn skin into red colour.
Overall, I rate this product 3/5.
Because even though it doesn’t clearly dissolve the blackehads, it does smoothen the skin and make blackheads easier to extract.
