Underrated product alert!💙 This Laneige Mini Pore Waterclay Mask is not new, but there’s not a lot of buzz about it unlike Laneige’s sleeping masks and lip masks. Out of curiosity, I got myself one 2 weeks ago when it was 50% off. And I totally have no regrets getting it on a whim because I instantly liked it the first time I used it😍 I’ve used this mask only a few times but I’m totally sold already. It’s a clay mask that’s supposed to remove excess sebum and minimize the appearance of pores. I like how the mud in this mask is so fine and how it dries down so fast. Make sure you apply a THIN and EVEN layer so it starts to dry down in a few minutes. Once it has completely dried down (around 10 minutes), it reveals tiny dots of sebum, indicating the sebum it had drawn out from pores. I also literally feel its tightening effect, as if it’s trying to really squeeze something out of my pores😂 It comes with a sea sponge that softens once it’s soaked in water. I use this sponge to remove the mask while washing it off at the same time. The result is cleaned out pores, and soft and super smooth skin, but without feeling tight or dry. I immediately apply my toner afterwards, followed by the other steps of my routine (essence, serum, sheet mask, and moisturizer). I have yet to see its full potential or how small it could shrink my pores haha! I’ll definitely give you an update on that next month.
