Cream mask are my absolute favourite since I started beauty blogging. I know many girls are very much into sheet mask but I cringed at them. Cream mask does not slide down my face when I had it on while working on my computer. Some sheet mask can be a little too wet hence slippery on the face. A big no-no for me. Throw me a tube or bottle of cream mask anytime!
I had this Innisfree Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask for quite some time now. As for the delay in reviewing, you already know the whole story – work caught up, camera spoilt and admitted to service center for 2 weeks. All that thingamajig story. I have also been working on every weekend for the past few months, which I have no complains. I love working. Having said that, work and attending events does took a lot of my time away from really sitting down and photographing products on the weekdays.
The Innisfree Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask is not new new. It was launched last year, if the details do register correctly in my brain. Innisfree is known for the hard clay version namely Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask. And this Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask is the cream mousse version. If you like the clay mask, you will like this too. It comes in a metal can with a pump top. This clumsy girl dropped the can and created a dent on the can the first day she got it 😀 . The pump is rather unique. It has a button cap attachment. It is recommended to always close the button cap and the can lid each time after use, which I understand as the mousse could potentially dries up if you did not.
The clay mask has its pros and con. So does this clay mousse. It is in a mousse form so it is super easy to get the product out to use. However, this is also tricky. You have to press on the dispenser carefully otherwise the mousse will flows out non-stop. A gentle, I repeat…a gentle soft press is all you need to dispense the amount for the whole face. You hardly even need to press. I am not kidding. The mousse is thick so you can spread evenly all over the face even with just a 50 cents coin amount. Another tricky part is the button cap. You have to use one of your finger to tilt the cap back so it does not get all over the mousse. Imagine doing all that while trying to gently press the pump down LOL. It is one chore I tell you 😛 . Oh and the mousse does gets all over the button cap. I always clean it up first before stuffing the button cap back but that also still gives me one heck of a mess. You know me. I am particular with cleanliness of my beauty products. It is really not an issue. Just personal preference.
If you are particular with scent, this Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask might irk you a bit. I am not particular with scent but the strong clay scent is not pleasant for my personal liking. This only happened when I apply (ter-pressed) too much product on my face. I tried a thinner layer and I hardly can smell the clay. So lesson learnt. PRESS GENTLY!
What I like about Innisfree is that all their products contain something from the Jeju island. The Super Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask is formulated with Jeju’s natural volcanic cluster called volcanic scoria, which was formed from Jeju island’s volcano lava flow. It contain twice as much nutrients comparing to other clay and has much stronger sebum control capability than other mud or even red clay.
Once it is on the face, it does not gets everywhere. It does not drip and harden the crap out of your life like other clay mask. It feels absolutely comfortable on the skin, even on my currently dry and dehydrated skin condition. The mousse is so smooth and I heard its molecules are so much more smaller than our smallest pores. With 6,020mg of Jeju volcanic clusters in it, this means the product is able to slide on between bumps of the skin to effectively clean the pores from deep within.
As the mask does not harden up, it is very hard to feel when it is ready to be rinse off. Remember, this clay mousse is supposed to be on the face for 10-15 minutes only, then wash off with lukewarm water. After rinsing, face feels cool to touch, soft and smooth. There was no tingling or tightening on the skin at all. I am impressed.
Now comes the fun part! Following up with a cold Super Pore Tightening Mask. This is a gel-like reusable face mask. Absolute cute! I died when I saw it. The coolness from the mask helped to further tighten the pores. You can have it too FOR FREE when you purchase a Super or Jeju Volcanic Clay Mousse Mask from 15th August to 30th September 2016 😀
