Spread the love :)

Sale Alert for my readers-

November FabBag is now unboxed. Watch now!

I fall in love with each and every face wash I try from The Face Shop. Their face washes work for my oily skin so well. Every time I try a face wash from The Face Shop, I feel “this is the one…” and then I try another one from The Face Shop, I feel that again. 😃 Seems like their all cleansers are perfect for combination to oily skin.

This time, I tried The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Pore Cleansing Foam and as always, it won my heart. This is even better than the Innisfree Pore Cleanser, I am not kidding!

If I had tried this face wash a few months back, I would have included this to my list of Best 5 Paraben-Free Face Wash for Oily, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin. You probably must have already guessed how much I am enjoying using this face wash. 😃

Review – The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Pore Cleansing Foam

The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Pore Cleansing Foam Review 3

My Skin Type: Combination to Oily, Sensitive, and Acne-Prone Skin

Packaging: It comes in a standard squeezable face wash tube with a flip-flop cap having a nozzle for the controlled dispense of the product. The cap is not tight enough tight to carry it in your bags but not too loose either. Thankfully, it won’t break your nails.

Fragrance: I don’t know how to explain in words the fragrance this face wash has but it’s nice. Not at all too strong or bothering. Kind of refreshing. 

My Experience

I loved my Innisfree Jeju Pore Cleanser. But as I mentioned above, after using this Pore Cleanser Foam from The Face Shop, I am not even looking at my Innisfree one, you must have guessed how great this is.

Being an Oily Skin person, I am prone to clogged pores and tiny bumps on my skin and pimples caused by those clogged pores. That’s the reason, I always enjoy deep pore cleansers

I am a person who loves squeaky clean cleansers and this Pore Cleansing Foam from The Face Shop does exactly what I love. I do not feel happy, or fresh with a face wash which leaves a soapy layer on the skin.

This is muddy brown in color, neither too thick nor too runny in the consistency, and has nice foaming properties.

This is a kind of face wash that does everything my skin needs and wants. This deeply cleanses my pores which over time, reduced clogged pores around the cheeks. This completely washes away the dirt, pollution, and stickiness and oiliness from the face.

This brightens up the skin washing away the dullness caused by dead skin and pollution and also, removes minor makeup traces

I have been using it day and night and I have seen a visible difference on my skin around the nose especially. This not only cleanses the pores resulting in a clear and fresh face but also worked on the existing clogged pores. I am extremely satisfied with this face wash. 

I am using this face wash along with my Plum Green Tea Toner and Mask and I am not getting any more pimples due to excess oil production. I don’t know what magic all these three products did, I am happy with the results. This doesn’t give me any stretchiness post washing on my skin, maybe because I am an oily skin person. But for dry skin, this might be too strong for you.  

If you are an oily-skin person who loves deep pore cleansers with squeaky clean effects, this pore cleansing foam from The Face Shop is an ideal fit for you. It does everything your skin needs to get rid of dirt and oil and feel fresh and clean.

The best part, no breakouts! 

Now, if you will ask me by using this face wash, am I not getting any more pimples? I will say, no, because pimple formation can be because of diet, atmosphere, and hormones. Whenever I eat too much oily or sugary food, I get pimples.

But I am happy that I do not get pimples due to dirt, bacteria, or excess oil production. I have been enjoying the way my skin looks after using this face wash, i,e, clean, fresh, and bright.

Summing Up
