Innisfree – Jeju Volcanic 3 in 1 Nose Pack | Review

We go to great lengths to get rid of blackheads. Most effective methods are often painful so when a brand creates something that offers blackhead removal minus the pain it totally deserves a chance. Ms. Super Consumer introduced me to the Innisfree – Jeju Volcanic 3 in 1 Nose Pack and when a product has “3 in 1” in its name I am more than just happy to test drive it.

Product Claims: 

1. Excellent sebum-adsorption power of Jeju volcanic clusters
-Jeju volcanic clusters that provide better sebum-adsorption power than* rhassoul clay deeply cleanse inside the pores.
2. Multi-purpose item solely for blackhead treatment
-Innovative multi-purpose item serving as a pack + scrub + cleanser.
3. Transforming formulation
-A transforming formulation that creates foam when the dry pack comes into contact with water.

* The use of “than” in the above statement has me confused! Is Innisfree suggesting that Jeju Volcanic Scoria is better than Rhassoul or is this a typo? If you know please tell me in the comments!

Packaging + Fragrance 

Innisfree packing over all is lovely. The graphics and colour scheme all very nice and pleasant exactly like the brand image. The tube is no – nonsense & travel friendly so all good there. The outer card board box has varied elements stating how the brand is heavily invested into their eco-friendly values and I appreciate them for this.

The product has a surprisingly nice scent. I am the kind who hates 90% of scents in beauty and skin care products, so to be absolutely honest I am pleasantly surprised! It’s a mild floral fragrance that doesn’t irritate or overwhelm.

Consistency & Efficacy 

When the pack freshly comes out of the tube it feels wet and I guess attributed to that dampness it also spreads easily over the skin. I concentrated it around my nose as that’s where my blackheads reside. It slightly stung below my nose, on the upper lip but nothing severe.

It dries gradually and as instructed I always wait around 15 mins before washing it. When completely dry it does not tug or pull at the skin like many other clay based masks. To wash it off I initially dampened the area with little water to experience the foaming. But the product doesn’t foam as mentioned in the claims!! When mixed with water it just dislodge’s with a slightly creamier texture compared to other clay mask. Then I used this damp mix to massage & scrub the area around the nose before washing it off completely.

Post wash I noticed the skin was feeling comfortable and not dry. It also seemed clean and had a slight glow. The area that was stinging had turned a little red, but nothing alarming! Unfortunately it didn’t do anything for my blackheads. I have only a few mostly in and around my nose and they are deep-set.

Pros:

  • Mild soothing Fragrance
  • Non Drying
  • Doesn’t tug at the skin when dry
  • Cleans sebum on the surface

Cons:

  • Not effective for deep-rooted blackheads/dirt
  • Does cause slight irritation on sensitive ares of the skin

Closing Thoughts:

Ms. Super Consumer tried this a few times and claimed that it didn’t remove the black heads completely but brought them to the surface, which can perhaps be removed by a second stage cleaning like a pore strip!

If you have a regular skincare routine chances are you will anyway have just a few and not very evident black heads and this product wont work for that kind. But if you have a blackhead situation bad enough to call it a “problem” I believe this will work as a first stage cleansing where like some folks have experienced, it will bring some blackheads to the surface which can then be pulled off by a strip or can be manually removed.

It did not work for me so I am not going to be re-purchasing this but if you have experienced this product differently I would love to hear from you in the comments.

  1. That sounds like an awesome clay mask. I love face masks, to be honest because they do wonders for my skin. Innisfree is a brand that’s highly spoken of, I’m sure this is worth checking out.

  2. Never tried this type of product as I go to my beautician on a monthly basis to do deep cleaning facials with her which include blackhead removal. Tried those “strips” which I found were not effective, I get better results with the facials.
