This review is based on a sample I got from Skinfood’s Egg White Pore Mask. I’ve been always curious about that mask, since I heard a lot of people do like it.
A pore-refining cleanser with egg white extract that penetrates deeply into pores to remove pore-clogging oil.
[Egg white Story]Egg white, enriched with albumin, promotes firmer skin and smaller pores.
* To UseAfter cleansing, apply to the face except the eye and mouth area. Wash off with lukewarm water in 10 ~ 15 minutes.
I have to point out that I’ve always loved Skinfood’s packaging. They have a vintage kind of design and logo and it really looks nice to me. The sample sachet design is as you expect it to be. Simple colors, but a little drawing on the front and the logo which makes it nice on it’s own way. The full size product comes in a jar.
The amount of product in the sample sachet is sufficient for 3 times use. This is great, because you can try the mask more then once and get a better view on the effects. The product itself has a thick creamy consistency. It can be spread nicely over the face and doesn’t fall off. The scent is flowery and clean, which I prefer over citrus scents :)
After 15 minutes the mask becomes starts drying and you can wash it off. What I experienced was super soft skin. I loved touching it afterwards.*_* The skin feels cleaned and refreshed, too.
Concerning the effect on the pores, they appear to be a bit smaller or less visible after use, but the effect vanishes after some hours. As you can see I got freckles after my summer holidays :D
I didn’t experience any firming, but I don’t know if this effect is only visible after long time usage.
However, I like to repurchase this mask, simply because I loved the softening effect and it is a quick re-freshener. I also liked the scent a lot, because it was a simple and pleasant flowery scent.
