Review: Skinfood Egg White Pore Mask

19. September 2013
Hey :)
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.

Here is the description taken from Skinfood’s official web page:

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.

    I like the brand Skin Food, but I’ve never tried an egg white mask before! I’m addicted to sheet masks these days. :)

    The effects take on very quickly which is great because you don’t need to use as much product?!
    Too bad the results don’t last for long :(


    • Fräulein Schnee 24. September 2013 at 12:20

      I think you need a normal amount of product, since it is a mask I tried to cover my skin as evenly as possible. Thanks for commenting :)

    Wow I can see the pores getting smaller for sure! :D
    I tried the cleanser sample from this line, and the scent was really nice too, even though it’s an egg product. xD

    • Fräulein Schnee 24. September 2013 at 12:22

      Lucky these products don’t actually smell of eggs. I ‘m happy the scent is nice instead.Thanks for commenting, Chee ♥

    I don’t do a lot of masks, myself. But I have to agree – I really love Skinfood’s vintage-esque packaging. It always draws me in. ^^

    • Fräulein Schnee 24. September 2013 at 12:24

      Yes, skinfood does a great job with their packaging design *_* I always fall for it….I have accumulated so many masks that I now try to use at least one mask a week :D normally I’m too lazy to do so :D Thanks for you comment, Bethany ♥

    The first time I used a clay mask it felt & looked like I had a bad sunburn. My dermatologist recommended Made from Earth’s “Seal Kelp Clay Mask” and it was perfect for my sensitive skin. It did extract the nasties from my old acne ridden face like nothing I’ve ever used before!

    My husband used the Made from Earth Clay Mask 2 nights ago and LOVES it. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to clear the pores.

    • Fräulein Schnee 21. April 2014 at 1:45

      Sounds like a nice alternative. I will check it out, thanks!
