Review: Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum

18. October 2015

Large pores are a skin concern that many of us have, especially with raising age the pores around our nose get more visible. Usually, most people just grab a primer and hide their pores instead of trying skincare products that try to tighten the pores. The Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum is exactly such a serum. It is supposed to have moiosturizing and tightening properties and to make the use of primers unnessesary over time. I was really curious how this serum would work on my pores, too, so I grabbed the chance and tried it myself.

Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum

Skinmiso is a Korean brand which is sold on Wishtrend. I tried the Skinmiso Rice Foam Cleanser previously, and it was a good cleansing product, but a bit drying for dry skintypes. The Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum is quite popular product by Skinmiso and I have read a couple of reviews where the serum showed good effects on the pores. The packaging design o Skinmiso products is simple and similar for all their products. They have a white and blue packaging design which looks kind of medical. Also the tiny cross next to the brand logo makes it look like medicine.

On the cardboard box of the Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum you will find mostly Korean, but also some English description. Wishtrend offers the full English description of the product. The ingredients are also listed on Wishtrend and you can find them on COSDNA, too. The Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum contains some irritating ingredients, so be sure to check previously and to patch test before using it regulary.

The Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum comes in a bottle with an included dropper. The bottle contains 30 ml of the product, but you cannot see through the bottle to check the amount of the serum. By holding the bottle against the light you might see a bit of a shadow though. Since it is a serum it is applied after your cleansing step and after toner.  After applying the milky colored serum on the target areas you can tap with your fingers until the serum is absorbed. You will feel a tightening effect on your skin. It is recomended to wait 20 minutes after application to see the full effects of the serum.

I’ve used this serum for 2 weeks now and I can definitively say that I feel the tighteining effect it has on the skin. I also think that it gives a good moisture oil balance on the targeted area (I used it mainly on my T-zone and the area around my nose). By looking at my skin before and after the application I cannot see a difference in the size of the pores. Also not after having used it for two weeks. Maybe it takes longer to see visible effects. Nevertheless, since it helps my T-zone to be less shiny during the day I think that especially people with combination or oily skin might like to try this product.

Since I feel a tighteining effect and I like the oil-moisture balance the product delivers I will continue to use the Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum. If I will see any visible changes I will be updating this post. So far I can definitively say that oily skintypes and combination skintypes might like to try our this serum, too. Skinmiso Pore Corset Serum retails at Wishtrend for 32.99 US$. You can check out my posts on the monthly Wishtrend coupons in order to get some extra benefits when shopping on Wishtrend.

Graveyard: July 2014

31. July 2014

Another month passed, which means another graveyard post for me. Here are the product empties in July 2014:



1. Damoae Therapy Shampoo – Repurchase? Yes! 

I would love to repurchase this shampoo. It worked so nice on my hair and gave me back the shine I missed so much. Also my hair felt stronger during the time I used. You can also check out the before and after pictures in my review for Damoae Therapy Shampoo and Tonic. They speak for themselves. Unfortunatelly, it is a bit pricey…But the shampoo also lasts for quite a time. I used it together with my bf, both of us washing our hair twice with the shampoo, and it lasted for 3 months. I guess for one person it can last more than half a year.

2. Innisfree Green Tea Pure Deluxe Kit – Repurchase? Parts of it.

Also here you can check out my review. I enjoyed using the kit, because it contained everything for a nice skincare routine, but my favourite items were the emulsion and the sleeping mask. I could imagine rebuying these some time. For green tea lovers I can definitively recommend you to try out one of the products from this line, or search for those kinds of kits. It is always more helpful than buying a fullsize and discovereing that you don’t like it.

3. Mizon Snail Recovery Gel Cream – Repurchase? Yes.

I talked about this product more than once and it was in one of my previous empty posts, too. This is the second tube I bought, which was at my bf’s place. Snail mucus newbies should try out this gel cream. You can also read more in my review.

4. TheFaceShop Foot Peeling – Repurchase? Yes.

My first foot peeling! I was doubtfull if if yould work, but it did. My skin is renewed and I’m ready for summertime and sandals XD Review in progress.

5. Skinfood Vita Water Drop CC Cream – Repurchase? Yes and no.

This is such an adorable packaging!*_* I’m still in love with it, although it is now time for us to part XD This was my first CC cream and it is not one of those CC creams containing color changing beads, but a fully colored one. It has a light and watery texture and gives you a nice finish. I really like this product. I won’t repurchase it though, simply because I have so many other CC/BB creams which I need to finish up before rebuying anything XD. Here is my review.

6. Skinmiso Rice Foam Cleansing – Repurchase? No.

This foam cleanser made me curious because it contained rice. It is a good cleanser, building up a decent amount of foam with a tiny bit of product. Somehow the scent is not my favourite and considering the huge amount of different cleanser I will try other foam cleanser before I repurchase this one. Read my review here.

Here are all my empty products in one picture :) Time to say goodbye to them :D

Review: Skinmiso Rice Foam Cleanser

9. February 2014
Here is another foam cleanser I’m using at the moment: Skinmiso Rice Foam Cleanser. I’m always curious about skincare products containing rice ingredients, since rice is well known for its skin benefits. This foam cleanser is claimed to be the best facial foam cleanser by Wishtrend, where you can buy it.

The packaging is simple and looks very clinical. It gives the impression of being a medical product. Indeed, the product description says that it contains many natural ingredients derived from plants, so it should be beneficial for the skin.


Here is the description taken from Wishtrend:

The best facial cleansing foam !

SKINMISO’s Rice Foam Cleansing is the best facial cleansing foam ! It uses many natural ingredients derived from plants so that the product is not harmful to your skin. It effectively removes dirt, dead skin cells, and makeup from your skin all while keeping your skin moisturized by regulating the sebum-water balance !

Removes dead skin cells, excess sebum, and cleans deep into pores.
Papaya extracts in this facial cleansing foam gently removes dead skin cells and excess sebum without damaging your skin. 
Effectively removes sun block, BB cream, and other makeup !The fine yet rich lather of this facial cleansing foam has great capabilities to effectively remove all types of makeup that has built up on your skin during the day.

This facial cleansing foam is perfect for :

  • People who have excess sebum secretion.
  • People who have dead skin cell build up on their skin.
  • People who have dull looking skin.
  • People who are concerned about their whiteheads and blackheads.
  • People who want clean but not dry skin.
  • People who want an effective facial cleansing.

Water, Myristic Acid, Butylene Glycol, Potassium Cocoyl Glycinate, Lauric Acid, Potassium Hydroxide, Stearic Acid, Cocamide DEA, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, PEG-6, Diglycerin, Glycol Stearate, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG-100 Stearate, Phenoxyethanol, Chlorphenesin, Fragrance, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract, Disodium EDTA, Allantoin, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Morus Alba Bark Extract, Phellinus Linteus Extract, Paeonia Albiflora Root Extract, Scutellaria Baicalensis Root Extract


The product has the typical moussy consictency of foam cleansers. It is white colored and has a difficult to describe scent. I’m not good in describing scents anyway, but the scent is a mixture between sweet and fresh, but it is neither flowery nor herbal….>_<”’ Excuse me that I’m not able to describe it in a better way…

It lathers into a fine and rich foam. If I use my new Konjak Sponge I only need a tiny amount and I get enough foam already. I think it will be the same if you use a cleansing brush. The cleansing effect is also good. It cleanses reliably make-up. The skin feels clear and soft afterwards and also a bit brightened up- which is probably the effect of the removed dead skin cells. For very dry skin: don’t forget to use moisturizer afterwards, because it is not leaving your skin moisturized. But that’s with almost all foam cleansers. I think this cleanser will work great on oily skin, because of the sebum reduction effect it claims to have. Since I have dry skin mostly, I cannot judge this part. I’ve been using this foam cleanser for 4 weeks now and it didn’t give me any irritations or breakouts.

If you are curious about this foam cleanser you can have a look at Wishtrend’s online store. It is available for US$ 12.99. At the moment it is available with free shipping as far as I know. If you’ve never ordered at Wishtrend you’ll get a one-time free shipping voucher upon registration.
