Innisfree: Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask 2X (BT21 Limited Edition) | Review

If you are into Korean anything you must already know that BT21 are eight adorable characters created by Line Friends based on the members of popular Korean boy band. The BT21 characters are Tata from Planet BT, who crashes on Earth with Van, and meets Koya, RJ, Shooky, Mang, Chimmy and Cooky. BT21 has already collaborated with brands like Uniqlo and now with Innisfree. My best friend who is a resident of Singapore gifted me this and my can has Cookie – the pink rabbit with a attitude, on it 🙂

I have previously used the Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask which comes packed in the tub way back in 2017 when Innisfree had recently launched in India. Find that post here. I wasn’t quite impressed then! But let’s see if the upgraded mousse variant is any different.

This product is essentially a clay mask in a mousse formula, that claims to clear pores with Jeju Super Volcanic Clusters™ while AHA and BHA dual-ly exfoliate skin. The brand says that it will work for Normal, Combination, and Oily Skin Types while addressing skincare concerns like Pores, Dullness and Uneven Texture, and Oiliness.

I love a great pump packaging because its more hygienic & easy. I was delighted to see this in the pump and it comes with a cap for the nozzle. I thought to myself, that was thoughtful of the brand. But once you start using it, it is a grand mess! The cap won’t close if there is product in the nozzle and it gets hardened there over time. How much ever I wipe it just doesn’t look clean! Moreover its very difficult to control the amount dispensed because the press mechanism is like that of an aerosol can due to which I always end up with excess.

It comes in a mousse formula which might be the best aspect of this product because clay masks tend to harden and aren’t the easiest to apply; but this mousse formula over comes that issue. It spreads well and it is very easy to get an even coat on your face. It claims to have some walnut shell particles but thankfully they aren’t very large and perceivable; this a good thing because they can be abrasive to the skin due to irregular, possibly sharp edges. It also has a slight clay-ey fragrance.

Packaging Flaw | Shot right after product was dispensed. The mess needs to be cleaned before it dries!

I have tried this for sometime and found it feels cool on the skin and is relatively easy to wash off. The skin doesn’t feel stretched when it dries on the face which was honestly is quite nice. Afterwards the skin feels clean, soft, refreshed and not as dry + dehydrated as it did with the jar variant. But one needs to be careful with the timing because once I left it on for too long while watching a movie and my skin felt extremely dry! Also no white cast was observed. While I didn’t see any immediate results but I do think it makes for a great mask if you have oily skin and large pores.

Innisfree: Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask 2X BT21 Limited Edition | Final Thoughts

Closing Thoughts:

Beauty community also believes that this can be used as a overnight treatment over zits and pimples. I have not personally tried it because fortunately I don’t experience too many zits but I can understand why that would be the case. The formula contains a lot of drying agents ie: Clay, both Kaolin and Bentonite and Volcanic ash which are used in spot treatments for pimples. It also contains Sulfur which is commonly used to treat skin inflammation and killing acne-causing bacteria Lastly Alpha and Beta Hydroxy Acids, are famous for their exfoliating property which helps to clear acne.
Folks with oily to very oily skin type will especially appreciate it. If you have large pores and also want to combat acne this should be beneficial. If you have dry – very dry skin I dont think this is for you but if you do try it keep it on for a smaller period of time. Over all it does make for a nice clay mask in one’s skincare routine.
Let me know in the comments if you have used this and what was your opinion of it. Also find me on Instagram for some fun pictures and conversations.

  1. I generally incline towards charcoal face mask and face wash, somehow I trust charcoal more than clays. I do have used volcanic clay mask but the exfoliating particles present in it doesn’t work well on my skin.

    The texture of it looks pretty cool, I also like the packaging they put it in because you don’t have to squeeze an odd shaped tube to get everything out.
