(5/5 stars) This is the product that started it all. It’s a smooth mud mask that’s meant to purify pores and absorb excessive sebum. It dries smooth, not brittle and it leaves my face oh-so soft! It was originally given to me by a friend and it sat in my cupboard for months before I even tried it. It’s made from volcanic rocks from Mount Halla or Hallasan, a dormant volcano located on Jeju island. Jeju (Jejudo) is South Korea’s largest island which is located southwest of the South Jeolla (Jeollanamdo) province. Jeju is a popular vacation destination that’s famous for its breathtaking nature and hiking trails. The island’s caves are known for being the finest lava tunnels in the world – it’s listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This area is near and dear to my heart and explaining the geography is important because its tells the story of a company that uses locally available and sustainable ingredients.
Summary: I love this product! My extremely sensitive skin loves this product! I wish I knew about it long ago. It worked so well for me that I had to find more … and the rest is history! I just recently bought the full sized tub version – it’s the same product, but in a bigger container. I love this so much, I even got a few for my mom to try (she’s 60 years old) and she loves it! It’s in my list of new faves that will eventually be a tried & true favorite. I highly recommend it!
