I love face masks & packs & Skinfood is popular for their masks! I've only ever tried mask samples from them but from a sample you can't really get properly acquainted/used to the product because there is such a small amount of product inside them.
So I braved myself & purchased a full size mask from Skinfood!~❤
I like Skinfood because they use natural food in their original form to make the products!
For example, egg white, rice, coffee, strawberry, tomato, grape, Aloe Vera, Sugar even Tea Bag & many more.
Healthy skin from using natural ingredients!❤
So today I shall review the Skinfood Egg White Pore Mask!❤
Blackheads are such a bother - They bother me more than spots ㅠㅠ Because I can never really get rid of them easily!
My skin is very dry so my pores are absolutely tiny therefore making it hard to extract clogged oil from them. My blackheads are not very serious & are really small but it still bothers me you know?
I bought this mask mainly for me & my brother~ Me to try to coax out any blackheads I may have when I have a bad skin day & for my brother, to cleanse out blackheads & minimize his pores.
Original Skinfood Price:- 8,000원
KPOPTOWN Price:- £4.40 (now £5.50)
So freakin' close to the original price! (ﾉ*^▽^)ﾉ❤. . .대박? ㅋㅋㅋㅋsorry heh. (´・ω・`)
A pore-refining mask that contains egg white & eliminates pore-clogging impurities.
Egg White Story:- Egg white is loaded with albumin that consists of amino acids.
Food Mania Tip!:- In the claims photo, the photos shows a girls/boys progress with one use of
the Egg White Pore Mask.
'They first washed their face with the Egg White Pore Foam & applied
the Pore Mask with a pack brush. After 15 minutes, she/he finds it cleared
their black & white heads. Also they find the mask improved their skin texture
& skin tone~
Then she/he did a before & after with applying makeup.
After using the mask & applying makeup, it made their skin silky & natural by
clearing white heads more effectively than before (because whiteheads are easily
expressed by makeup right?)
They also recommend using the Skinfood Black Egg Pore Primer afterwards for
better makeup result!~
Egg White Line
Foam >> Egg White Pore Mask >> Toner >> Clean Pad >> Serum ( U-zone & T-zone)
>> Emulsion >> Cream
The claims pictures look like the mask works like magic! But does it really?
Also 100g product! Quite a lot for a mask!❤
Oh my gosh, it's so cute in real life!~❤ My immediate thoughts was that it looked like a ice cream tub (○´∀｀○) hehe~❤ Egg White Ice cream. . . that doesn't sound quite appetising does it? ㅠㅠ I adore the simple colours of white & pale yellow & the adorable little drawing of the eggs! Looks quite vintage!❤
The packaging is a medium sized strong plastic tub in which the screw-on cap holds securely to.
It's surprisingly small at 6.2cm with a cap diameter of 8cm - I can almost cup it in my palm. It's very lightweight too - So I think its ideal if your skin needs a pick-me-up when travelling!❤
I see no problems of it breaking or spilling for the future with the sturdy plastic & secure lid.
I'll definately bring this along with me when I go on my 2-day trips to London~❤
The sticker on the cap is peel-back!
Here you can see the ingredients!~❤
After removing the cap you see this plastic divider that prevents the mask from messing up the cap:-
|It has 'Skinfood Since 1957' in 3D pop-out~|
The small tub holds quite a lot of mask in it!❤
It should last me & my brother ages since a small amount goes a looong way!
The mask is a white with a grey hue colour & has a paste like consistency. It's ever so creamy & soft!❤ *-* I'm trying to think of how to describe it. My mother thinks it has a butter or cream cheese texture eeewww ㅎㅎㅎㅎ It looks very moistfull in real life without being too heavy or at all runny!
At first, I actually thought it was a clay mask. That was until I put a spatula in it to scoop some up!
It truly is like butter!❤
Looks like ice cream now!! ❤
I can eatz? no? k ㅠㅠ
* * *
It spreads on just like butter too!❤ (body butter that is ㅋㅋㅋㅋ I do NOT go around spreading actual butter on me haha ヽ(゜∇゜)ノ )
It really glides perfectly on the skin without tugging the skin. Sometimes my usual western -shhh brand X- mask is a gel & when I apply it, it does not apply evenly - but all lumpy & nasty! sadness.
I'm so glad for the creaminess of this mask!❤
It applies not as heavy as it looks & felt cooling & moistfull to swatch out! ^^❤
It has a pleasant light floral scent! It's not overpowering~❤
I apply the mask with pack brush just like the girl/boy in the claim photo~!
My Pores Before
It looks as if I have none but it's because my pores are tiny due to dry skin - You can slightly see them near the tip of my nose.
I'm also going to wear the mask for this review & show the pictures but for those with more bigger, more noticeable pores - my brother Lewis allowed me to show you his pores.
Please no harsh comment about his skin - His skin due to hormones has broken out considerably with his oily skin.
Also please quickly scroll down if you are squeamish about clogged pores or are eatiing! I don't you all all to go hungry because of me!
This is my brothers pores - He & I call it his strawberry nose! ㅋㅋㅋ
His pores are bigger than mine due to oily skin & he has quite of a lot deep blackheads. I know many people have noses like this - I'm going to show you the amazing results from this mask!!
After cleansing, apply to face except the eye & mouth area. Wash off with lukewarm water in 10-15 minutes.
On the Face
Again this mask applies soooo smoothly & lovely on the skin (ﾉ*^▽^)ﾉ❤ It's just like butter & can easily be applied evenly with fingers & a pack brush~ You only need a small amount as it spreads a long way. It's not at all heavy on the skin & densely covers pore areas. It does feel like a treat to apply this as its quite cooling & moistfull to spread on the skin - Especially if you steam your skin before hand.
OH! by the way, me & my brother did not steam our faces before applying. However we did wash our faces with foam cleanser before applying the mask like the directions advised.
|Freshly applied - Lewis' nose|
This mask despite how moist/creamy is it, dries very quickly! - About 10 minutes (｡・ω・｡)ﾉ Yay!❤
Some masks with thick-creamy consistency sometimes take ages to dry up! But this mask, no matter how much you apply - dries perfectly. It dries into a light powder (like baby powder) surface, you can actually feel the mask drying up.
My face did not feel uncomfortably tight - I could still smile & talk (proof for my smile in the photo above <`∀´>)❤ & nor did it feel like it was taking out any moisture from my skin beforehand.
Sometimes my face felt warm (not tingly or uncomfortable!) - I guess its the way the mask coaxes out clogged pores.
The mask kind of cracks when it dries ^^ - Not cracking from talking, moving - But all of it has tiny cracks. It reminds me of when icing on a bun loses it moistness.
Why is it that every review I do, I mention food?!
|Drying Mask - My nose|
|Drying Mask - Lewis' nose|
So after 15 minutes we both rinsed it off. You wash the mask off with lukewarm water. Have you ever had a creamy mask that takes ages to rinse? Well, this mask only needs about three splashes to remove! It rinses off so quickly!❤
My nose after the mask
May not look a lot considering how little clogged pores I have before. But my nose looks much smoother! It removes any whiteheads I had on my nose & made it really smooth~~ ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ❤
It made my nose a little bit red - Because my skin is dry but not irritated~ It didn't leave my skin irritate or dehydrated (´∀`)❤ My skin incredibly baby soft & refreshed. I think it made my pores even smaller than usual - Which can be a bad thing & a good thing for dry skin such as mine.
Now here is the magical part for those with more deeper blackheads than me.
Ready for this?
My brother's nose after the mask!
ISN'T THIS MASK FREAKIN' AMAZING?❤
Much better results on my brother's nose! & this is with first application!❤
Those two big blackheads from before . . . popped out . . . after he rinsed the mask off & the rest of his clogged pores are much clearer & smoother!❤
Redness of recent spots has been eased & his skin tone looks brighter now that the pores were cleared~❤
His pores look slightly smaller than before, but it was just temporary (like a day) effect. But its quite hard to see visible results - Maybe with more use we will find out.
I can't keep from looking at the before & after. We have never got this effect with pore strips or any other pore cleansing products.❤
Second Day of Use
I used the mask again - This time I couldn't do it on Lewis because he was in a group on Borderlands so it's just my nose this time~
Because the mask application is quick & easy & the drying process, super quick as well as the rinsing off. I can apply this mask whenever I like at home without having to wait too long for it dry,
|Yesterday at about 8pm|
|Lipstick - Etude House Dear my Blooming Lips-Talk in OR201|
More & more smoother everyday!❤
My pores looker very clear in real life & muuuuch smoooother~❤
I should posted a makeup before & after but I forgot ㅠㅠ But take my word for it, the mask minimizes pores & whiteheads so no bumpy base makeup!
|Smooth nose with base makeup~❤|
Me & my brother both like this mask a lot!❤ It has a refreshing, moist, creamy texture that densely covers the pores for deep-penetrating of the pores.This mask really works to clear out the deepest of clogged pores & to minimize the appearance of them. Despite the minimizing of pores is just a temporary results - the pores are still cleansed!❤
It eases redness & soothes the skin while leaving the skin look brighter, clearer & smoother. ^▽^
I believes if you use this mask regularly in your routine, your pores & skintone will be clearer & your skin happier with it! (○´∀｀○)❤
We will continue to use this because the results are super good (especially for my brother) & its super good money worth for how much product you get in the tub!❤
