Skinfood Egg White Pore Mask Review

Clay masks are a great way to freshen up your skin immediately. When you get a combination of clay mask with egg whites it's a must in my cabinet.
Egg whites help in shrinking open pores and make them appear smaller in size. They are rich in amino acids and vitamins that help in nourishing and tightening the skin.
In this post I am sharing my review and experience with Skinfood’s Egg White Pore Mask. Skinfood is a Korean brand which has some amazing skincare ranges. 
The egg white and rice products have definitely caught my attention. 

Coming to the product details- 

What does the product say-
This pore refining mask is made up of egg white extract (albumen) which helps in removing pore clogging oil. When the pores are clear it prevents dirt build up that can cause acne. 

Ingredients- (from the website) 

Water, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Albumen Extract, Glycerin, Bentonite, Cetearyl Alcohol, Kaolin, Alcohol Denat., Glyceryl Stearate, Peg-100 Stearate, Butylene Glycol, Silica, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Palmitic Acid, Stearic Acid, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Glyceryl Stearate Se, Polyvinyl Alcohol, Polysorbate 60, Pvp, Potassium Hydroxide.

Price- 790 INR 

Quantity- 125 gm 

Shelf life- 12 months after opening. 

Packaging- 

The mask comes in a beautiful white and yellow tub packaging.  


Texture and consistency- 

This mask has a thick creamy clay like consistency which spreads easily on the skin. The coverage is really good and a little product is needed for each application. 


How to use it? 

Apply a generous amount on cleansed face. Leave it for 10-15 minutes then wash it off with lukewarm water. Follow up with a moisturiser. 



My experience with the product- 

I do love clay masks for my combination acne prone skin. They help in removing excess sebum and dirt from my skin. Applying a good clay based mask helps in making your pores appear much smaller in size. 

There are multiple benefits of using egg whites for skin. I always wanted to try them out but didn't like to use raw eggs on my face.The key component of this face mask is albumen extract which is a protein found in egg white. 

Albumen helps in constricting your pores making your skin look smoother and firmer.The effects of this extract in a face mask is temporary but it does make your skin brighter before an event. 

The mask has a very smooth consistency and it glides on like a dream on the skin. After ten minutes it starts drying up, giving a bit of a tight feeling on the face. It washes off really easily and provides a smoother and brighter skin immediately.

Kaolin clay and bentonite removes excess oil and makes the skin look fresh.The presence of olive oil and glycerin moisturises the skin. Olive oil has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. It helps in nourishing the skin nicely and making it soft and supple. 

Glycerin is a humectant that relieves dryness and retains moisture in the skin.My pores definitely appear smaller after using this egg white mask. It does not feel dry or stretchy after application. 

Pros- 

  • Contains albumen extract.
  • Kaolin and bentonite control and remove excess oil.
  • Pores appear smaller for a few hours after application of this mask.
  • Glycerin and olive oil moisturises the skin.
  • A little product goes a long way.
  • Easily available.
  • Travel friendly.
  • Makes the skin brighter.

Cons- 

  • Tub packaging does not come with a spatula.
  • Results are temporary. 
Will I repurchase it? 
Yes !! It's a good fun mask to use. 

Recommended for combination and oily skin types.

Hope you found this post helpful.

Minimalist Salicylic acid + LHA 2% Face Cleanser review

Salicylic acid and Capryloyl salicylic acid (LHA) have been gaining popularity in the skincare industry for quite some time now. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) which has keratolytic properties that helps in unclogging pores making it suitable for acne prone skin types. LHA on the other hand is a derivative of salicylic acid which has an added fatty chain to make it more lipophilic and gentle for exfoliation. In today's post I am sharing my experience with the newly launched M inimalist Salicylic Acid and LHA 2% face cleanser . If you have read my previous posts you must know that most of the minimalist products worked really well for me except for the PHA toner so I was pretty excited to use its face cleanser as well. The face wash is sulphate free and contains both BHA and LHA for gentle exfoliation of dead skin cell layers. Clogged pores can lead to the formation of non-inflammatory (blackheads, whiteheads) and inflammatory acne. Hence adding such chemical exfoliat

Minimalist Multi Peptide Serum Review

Peptides are made up of two or more amino acids which are the building block of proteins.  Collagen is naturally present in our body which is made up of polypeptides. As we grow older the collagen starts depleting which can result in presenting the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Adding a topical peptide serum or moisturiser in your daily skincare routine can delay these signs while promoting a healthy and youthful skin. Whenever you want to incorporate any topical peptide product in your skincare routine always invest in a good leave on product rather than wash off products. The reason behind it is that leave on products are there in contact with the skin for a longer period of time helping to show results more effectively. In today's post I am sharing my views on the Multi Peptide Serum by Minimalist . Minimalist is an Indian skincare and hair care brand that has come up with affordable serums and moisturisers with a good percentage of actives in them
