With the upcoming opening of Innisfree in Singapore, I thought I should share about an item I bought on my recent trip to Seoul so that everyone here can include it in their shopping list when heading to the store! You can already tell I recommend this product. LOL.
Well, Innisfree products generally can be trusted to do the job since it belongs to the same owner as Sulhwasoo and HERA (and more) which have highly raved products.
So basically, this is a balm you use before you wash your face. You take a little (or a lot, depending on how big the area you want to apply it on is) on your fingers, then rub it into the areas where you have blackheads. I don’t have too bad blackheads, but I get clogged pores really easily have this has really helped to clear it out.
Don’t rush this process..really take the time to rub it in, on your blackheads, white-heads & clogged pores. Then, what I like to do is go do something else for a few minutes so the balm can get “absorbed” a bit more, then I use one of those pimple removers and scrape along all the areas where I applied the balm. Everything just slides out, no kidding. Then, wash your face and do your thing.
For really old/deep impurities you might only get it to slide out after a few times of application and scraping. I’ve been using this product once a week and it really makes my pores feel so clean.
I also like doing a soothing mask whenever I clear out my pores because I feel that it helps to calm the skin and the mask gets absorbed easier since there’s no more gunk in my pores to interfere!
I got this in Seoul for around 5000KRW and I hope the mark up won’t be too high in the Singapore store! If you can’t wait to try this out, you can also try getting it on Gmarket.
Innisfree Singapore will be at Takashimaya B2.
