Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam Review

After a few weeks of using the Tosowoong Enzyme Cleanser I decided I should probably use something more gentle

While I love the exfoliation of it, I was beginning to get a little worried that it was just too harsh. Particularly as I was using it every single day. My skin was red more often than not after use so I started looking for an alternative.

After some research I decided to give an Innisfree cleanser a whirl. Foam cleansers normally don’t agree with me but it had some good reviews and I’m really loving Innisfree products at the moment.

I was shopping for my new cleanser over on my favourite ebay shop. There’s a huge selection of Innisfree cleansers (and just cleansers in general) and I was a little overwhelmed. I try not to overthink skincare purchases too much. I look at a few reviews, but I don’t like to spend hours on a choice. After looking at the selection I gravitated towards Innisfree. From there, the Jeju Volcanic Foam caught my eye as blocked pores are one of my biggest skin concerns.

This cost just £8 for 150ml but if you like it you can get double the size for just £12.

How to use

You simply need to squeeze some of the product onto your hand and then get both your hands wet. From there, you rub them together to get the product worked up into a small foam and then start applying to your face. 

The product itself is actually a thick cream. It’s not what you’d expect from a cleanser calling itself a foam. It’s got a few small beads in it, but very few. Just enough to give your skin a light exfoliation.

It lathers up nicely on your skin, in a soft creamy way. After washing off my skin actually feels squeaky clean. I don’t think I’ve ever had that with a cleanser before. You might think that my skin feels dry if it’s squeaky clean but it’s really not. This is completely different from any other foaming cleanser I’ve used before. My skin is soft, clean and moisturised after use.

So have I ditched the Tosowoong?

Definitely not. I’m using that a couple of times of a week when my skin is feeling a little rough or I’ve got the beginnings of an acne flare up. I then use my CosRX Overnight Rice Mask for a bit of extra moisure on those evenings. So far this combination has been working really well for me. I haven’t felt like my skin has been feeling stripped at all.

I’m continuing to be impressed with Innisfree and am building quite a range now. I’ve recently just added an eye cream and toner to my collection. I don’t have any wash off masks in my routine yet, but I’m thinking of picking up one of the Innisfree clay masks soon. If you have any suggestions, please let me know in the comments below!
