I am back with another Korean beauty product review. I spoke about Innisfree in my last post titled: Korean Beauty Product to the Test: Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Nose Pack Review
This time I am reviewing a face mask from this brand. A Capsule Pack is basically a one time use mask. The concept is genius. You can try out the mask and see if you like it, without investing tons of money. How many times have you gone out and purchased a mask, only to realize that it didn’t suit your skin and now you are stuck with it. The Innisfree capsule pack lets you try out a mask without making a huge investment. This capsule pack cost me about $4.00. There is a lot of product in here, so you can probably use this a second time, if you store it properly once opened. I realized later that you can actually put the lid back on once you have opened it. This product contains Jeju volcanic clusters which help absorb sebum and dirt. It is a clay mask. The product claims to offer solutions for multiple things which sounds kinda sketchy … it claims to be good for moisturizing, soothing, nourishing, pores and skin problems (whatever that means). I don’t think one mask, especially a clay one can set out to do all those things. I generally find clay masks are more targeted for minimizing and cleaning pores, but hey, I am no skin expert! Anyhow, I decided to give this mask a test. It is easy to apply, there is no bad smell, and the texture is not too thin or too thick. I applied it all over my face, focusing specifically on my oily T-zone. I left the mask on for 10 minutes and then washed it off.
So what do I think about it? Well, to be honest, I don’t know. I wasn’t wowed by it. I am not sure if it minimized my pores, or helped clear my blackheads. I feel like this is something that needs to be used multiple times in order to see any results. At the price point, you can buy one every two weeks, and actually see if it works over the long run. For now, I am not overly impressed, I am just meh about this product despite really wanting to love it.
