[REVIEW] Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Nose Pack

Time for a confession: part of the reason why I purchased this was because I needed to hit $20 for free shipping on Shopee. I wasn’t in particularly dire need of clearing my blackheads at that time, but let’s admit it, everyone’s gotta need a good nose strip at some point in time, right? I bought this in a box of 6, but I think they only sell individual packets in Singapore’s Innisfree stores.


Product Description

A nose pack containing Jeju volcanic scoria that removes blackheads and keeps pores clean.

Official Retail Price in Singapore: SGD 1 (for 1 piece)


Ingredient List

VP/VA Copolymer, Water/Aqua, Titanium Dioxide, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Ethyl Hexanediol, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Oil, 1,2-Hexanediol, Volcanic Ash, Silica, Hamamelis Virginiana(Witch Hazel) Extract, Phenoxyethanol, Black Iron Oxide (CI 77499), Red Iron Oxide (CI 77491), Yellow Iron Oxide (CI 77492)

I’m actually quite surprised that this product’s second highest ingredient is water. You wouldn’t exactly be expecting water in your nose strip, but I’m guessing it could be the ‘glue’, which helps the strip to stick on your nose. The fact that there’s more lavender oil than volcanic ash is also quite unexpected, but overall I’m quite happy to see other beneficial ingredients like witch hazel extract.

Packaging: Very consistent with Innisfree’s eco-friendly, natural branding. It’s also very easy for you to tear open an individual packet, so I generally have not much to say about this.

Effectiveness: The photos speak for themselves when I say that this pore strip is SUPER EFFECTIVE. I got a shock when I saw all these gunk trapped on the strip. I’ve seen my fair share of dirt when I use other brands’ but never so much before. It’s horrifying, but also actually very pleasing to see after you get over the initial shock. Of course, I’m extremely happy that this strip is effective because it means a cleaner nose for me.


Final Verdict

I’ve read some reviews online that this product is not good because it peels their skin off. I haven’t encountered this problem so far, and I think a possible reason it could happen is if you leave it on your skin for too long, so the glue (which is really sticky) dries up. My recommendation is not to put it on for more than 15 minutes, or you might not like this product even if they eradicate all your blackheads.

I would definitely repurchase this, but another good point to take note would be doing the necessary after-care (closing your pores using cold water, etc.), because this does such a great job in pulling out the dirt that your pores might be enlarged after that.
