Anyone remember Tyra Bank’s iconic line on America’s Next Top mã sản phẩm – “I was rooting for you, we were all rooting for you! How dare you?!” That pretty much sums up my sentiment on this product. Most of the đánh giá I came across were either mediocre or abhorrently bad. But I gave it the benefit of doubt because it’s my beloved Innisfree and this is another hàng hóa from their Volcanic line. Now I wish I had spent my 5,000KRW on something else, perhaps another bottle of Sidmool Well Being Green Tea Skin or Lotion. Oh the regrets of bad decision making.

Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm is contained in a brown plastic tub that is incredibly compact & travel-friendly. It comes with 30g of hàng hóa which may seem little but should last you a while as a tiny amount is sufficient per each use. It does not come with a spatula or a silicone pore brush. Just make sure you clean your hands prior khổng lồ using the hàng hóa to avoid contaminating it. You could also use other alternatives such as a clean teaspoon or stirring spoon to scoop the sản phẩm out.

The balm is opaque & solid in the tub. However the texture will melt & become oil-like once you mas sa it over your skin. It’ll feel greasy under your fingertips but I find the texture easy to work with as it doesn’t tug at my skin. And don’t worry about the grease, you can remove it with cleanser and water.


I’ve been using this two lớn three times weekly since late August but I still have quite a bit left since I mostly use this over my nose only.


The instructions provided by Innisfree says lớn massage the balm over your blackhead concentrated areas for 3-5 minutes before cleansing. After you massage the balm over your skin, it’s supposed khổng lồ help loosen your blackheads & dislodge them. You then wash everything off with a cleanser.

So ideally, you do the whole routine for 3-5 minutes, the balm melts once you begin massaging it over your blackheads and the formula works to lớn loosen and remove your blackheads. However most blackheads seem undeterred by this formula. It works, don’t get me wrong, but don’t expect any dramatic blackhead removal. For me, this formula is only capable of removing the blackheads that are sitting on the surface & not the deep-rooted ones. Those guys are still there as I expect something stronger will be required to force them out. The one good thing about this balm is it leaves your skin feeling soft once you wash it off.

I’ve tried massaging this balm with just my fingertips and with silicone pore brushes on separate occasions but noted little difference. There were a few times the silicone pore brushes felt abrasive against my skin (on my ultra-sensitive skin days) but some say it’s supposedly more effective than your fingertips. I’ve also read that applying a steamed towel over your face prior khổng lồ using the balm really helps open up your pores. While I would lượt thích to try that, I haven’t had the opportunity to vì so yet.

I don’t really mind the time required to work this sản phẩm in since it’s not a part of my daily routine. I sometimes even go as long as 10 minutes if I see a bit of blackheads coming out. However, I concur 3-5 minutes is somewhat time-consuming when after all that’s done, your smug blackheads are still there, unmoved by your efforts.


Aside from the fact that this is travel-friendly, I actually lượt thích the way it smells. A lot of Innisfree products smell lượt thích citrus fruit which I’m not a huge fan of, but I quite lượt thích the scent of this. & it’s more obvious than some other products since I have to massage it over my nose for a good 3-5 minutes. I can’t describe the smell but I personally find it relaxing.

Those who dislike mineral oil might want to lớn consider skipping this because it contains a significant amount of it. I’m neutral towards mineral oil even though I have experienced a couple of breakouts after using this. Mineral oil is kind of a controversial ingredient and your stance on it might influence your decision on the hàng hóa unless you’re lượt thích me & don’t really care.

Unfortunately, Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm does not effectively remove all my blackheads, neither does it give me the clear skin it claimed. The most it does is remove a few blackheads and soften my skin texture.


Sad khổng lồ say, the Jeju Volcanic Blackhead Out Balm was a bit lackluster in terms of performance và effectiveness. The thing about skincare is there’s no one form size fits all formula. So even though this was not incredibly effective on me, it doesn’t mean it won’t work for you. The best part is it’s quite inexpensive so even if it doesn’t work, you would have not wasted a fortune. Wait, I think that’s just me trying to console myself.

The good:

inexpensive (5,000 KRW)softens the area you apply it totravel-friendly

The bad:

no dramatic resultsno effect on deep-rooted stubborn blackheadstime-consuming for someno spatula includeda number of flagged ingredients


I don’t recommend this sản phẩm but it’s worth a try if you’re curious. I mean the price will hardly vày any damage so for those curious minds, give it a try. But if you want my honest opinion, I’d say skip it, treat yourself to lớn some nice sheet masks for the same price instead.
