[I’M FROM] VOLCANIC MASK First Impression/Review


A few days ago, I was sent this new mask for review purpose. [I’M FROM] is comparatively a newer brand. Currently, they only have a few products in the market and so far most of them got pretty good reviews.
The product I was sent is the  [I’M FROM] VOLCANIC MASK. This product was released earlier this month. I am one of the lucky few persons to get the chance to try it, thanks to Korean Cosmetics Bangladesh <3 <3
 
Anyways, back to review. According to [I’M FROM],
This product contains 8.6% of natural pure volcanic clay from Jeju Island (which is a beautiful place. I googled Jeju Island and the things I have seen!!!)

And what is this Volcanic Clay capable of? 


The press release says,
” -It helps to remove dead skin cells and have a cooling effect on the skin)
  -It absorbs excess sebum and skin waste strongly” 

I found several other information on the Wishtrend link:

  • Total Pore Care Solution
  • Outstanding Serum Absorptive Power
  • Firming by Rich Natural Mineral
  • Skin Purifying, a Gift of Nature

 

Ingredients:

 [I’M FROM] VOLCANIC MASK comes with a long list of ingredients. The major ingredient is of course the Volcanic Ash. But it also has several other good ingredients including the flower extracts, bentonite clay and Kaolin.

Packaging: 
This comes with a simple glass jar with a white packaging. The lid is very tight so your mask won’t get dried out easily.
You will get 110 GMs product in each jar, whereas the Innisfree one has around 100ml products.
I wish it didn’t come with a glass jar, but then again there must be some reason behind the packaging.
 
My experience with the [I’M FROM] VOLCANIC MASK: Truthfully, skin care items take a long time to properly work with your skin. It’s not magic and it won’t work overnight unless it’s made from Unicorn tears. But then again why should you let a unicorn cry? What’s the matter with you? They are magical creatures and they should be adored, like cats.


Anyways, back to the actual review. When I first opened the jar, I experienced something like this, an old lace white gooey thing with buttery consistency.
 
 
 
 

It doesn’t actually have any noticeable smell, but that first time it smelt slightly like yogurt. Today it smelt like iron (I have a weird nose, because my sister says it doesn’t have any smell).

As it is actually fragrant free, so it won’t create any drama in any sensitive skin owners life.
 
How do I use this? 
I use this after my regular cleansing and toning ritual. I take a tiny amount of this mask and spread it evenly on my skin, except the eye and lips. After that, I kind of look like a possessed person. Here’s a pretty picture of me wearing this mask :3
The first time I used it, my skin got pretty dehydrated. But I was also much stressed and had very little sleep during that time. And I didn’t drink enough water too.
After several applications, I noticed some changes in my skins. My pores are noticeably smaller and if I exfoliate after using this mask, then I get twice the amount of icky stuffs removed. For washing this off, use lukewarm water.
My skin looks noticeably brighter after using this. Please note that I said brighter not whiter.
Things You Should Remember:
This will make your skin dry after application, so moisturize thoroughly. It’s very good for oily and oily/combo skin.
 
Price: It comes with a hefty price tag of 28.9 dollars (wishtrend rate).
But Korean Cosmetics Bangladesh can give you a better deal as they buy in bulk. 
 
 Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Clay Mask has the same kind of ingredients with a lower price, but I haven’t used that yet. So can’t comment further on this issue.
 
So, that’s it for today. Hope you found this review useful and don’t forget to comment below. Here’s a photo of a nerdy cat for nothing.
