REVIEW: ETUDE HOUSE WONDER PORE FRESHNER

yes, they really spelled it as f-r-e-s-h-N-e-r
hoooray! i found a replacement for one of my all time favorite toners.   i think the competition who used to bottle their pore clear toner has updated their formula and changed the name to some doctor ac something.  but i shall always remember this:
so i had to try out the sample first.  and i am really glad i did.  it really is refreshing, very very very gentle, but still is able to clean off any residue from my soap or makeup.
 and who wouldn't get a kick out of the the line below??
'i'm your wonder woman for your pore'???
 bwahahahah, whatever this thing is, it's gentle yet it works.  doesn't leave any greasy after feel but isn't drying or doesn't have a stinging feel. but let's break it down, shall we?




the promise:


Wonder Pore Freshner is a total solution for pore care, preventing enlarged pores, less firmer skin and skin troubles by eliminating what hurts skin health from within.
Features Seven Pore Effects:
-Maintains ph 4.5 to within 1 ph
-Refines the skin tones
-Keep the elasticity of pores
-Deep cleanses pores
-Minimize appearance of pores
-Control a large amount of the sebum (oil control)
-Moisturize inside and outside of skin
Vol. 500ml (16.90 fl.oz.)


1.) well, i don't carry around me litmus paper so i can't test that, besides litmus paper isn't cheap
2.) refines skin tone :  according to this:

Definition of REFINE

: to free (as sugar or oil) from impurities or unwanted material
ok i guess, i'm down with that.  i produce the oil and dead skin cells so that was once apart of me so using this toner refines me or at least my face
3.) Keep the elasticity of pores - well it doesn't feel like my skin is being pulled to dryness.  you know? that stretching, tightening feeling when using eskinol (sorry tita Vi)
4.) Deep cleans pores, if something can 'melt' away dirt, oil, and grab on to dead skin cells, then yes, it does this purpose, if only for the alcohol content in this product.
5.) Minimizes appearance of pores - nothing short of a true chemical peel and a dimethicone primer can diminish the appearance of pores.  so no, but i do feel clean with just a few drops and a few wipes on my face ;-)
6.) control a large amount of sebum (oil control) - yeah, i would say so.  i've been spending the weekend at home with no makeup just a clean face, this and my skin care and i'm not too oily even with a less than performing a/c (so mainet parin kahit naka aircon)
7.) Moisturize inside and outside - well, outside sure, by not being to alcohol-y but inside? i don't remember drinking this :P and really, if something is topical, then it shouldn't go inside your skin.


So i've broken down the konglish -  but this kind of promise can be seen and found in western brands as well.  it's alcohol  or some sort of basic (as in base the opposite of acid) liquid and perfume the difference would be the percentage of it in the content.  even rhoto eye drops are astringents.
Will I purchase the full size - yep, i found my gentle toner in the same range as the toner i had lost from the competition, nuff said.
Do i recommend? - yes, actually, i recommend this, to ladies and gents with oily and oily combination skin.  i do not recommend anything stronger just because you think you're too oily.  the more you make your skin dry??? the more oil you'd end up producing.  so hinay hinay lang.  
and for the price?  a little goes a long way so your PhP798 for 500ml will go a long way.  and since it's not too alcohol-y, it wouldn't immediately evaporate on you either.
i know this is a quite popular toner, i'm glad i finally get to try this LOL

hmmmm. I'm curious about this product. Do you think it's good for fighting pimples?

gerilen_elinessete said...

i already had this but was hesitating to use it kc oily and acne prone ako lately lalu na ngaung summer, yaw ko na dagdagan breakouts.. thanks po for posting! after reading this review, im uber excited na to use it all up! hearts hearts! <3

Marge said...

be gentle on your skin, if you were to wash, twice a day, and choose a gentle cleanser.
enough to clean but not dry out your skin. so yeah, this is a good toner ^_^

Marge said...

fighting pimples - keep your skin really clean, if you can wash twice a day, try. but don't use a harsh cleanser or toner, so this is good. like i mentioned, if you dry your skin out too much with harsh astringents the more you'll produce oil, the more you might get pimples, sebum is a medium (a home and food) for bacteria

thanks!

I was hurt and depressed when my lover of five years left me for another woman. One friend suggested the idea to contact a spell caster, which I would have never thought of myself. I contacted a few of them but prophetharry@ymail.com was the person I felt good with. he was understanding, replied all my emails promptly and patiently. Then I decided to place an order for his spell even if at that time I was still a bit skeptical about his capacity to bring my man back with me. Only 1 week after the spell was actually cast, he returned to me and since then, it seems that there is no more mistrust and no more lies between us. For that reason, I am gladly leaving a testimonial on this page, which I believe will help persons to chose prophetharry for their case.

I found out I was pregnant just after two week of breakup with my bf. Immediately I knew I had to have an abortion. There was no way I was ready to have a child, by my self without my boyfriend, and I wasn't strong enough to go through an abortion because i love my bf more than words can say. I had to tell him about it but he rfuse to accept and say why must it be after the breakup. I know I want my lover back but how? Because i cant go through this pregnancy alone. From the moment I seek for spiritual help online then I found a woman who do spell her Priestess Ifaa, People were talking good about her on reuniting issues, I contacted her with her email priestessifaa@yahoo.com, I never really have an idea how this things work but she sounds so real and straight forward. She gave me hope that in 3days i would have my bf back to carter for me and love me even more than i ever expected., I gave her what she requested for and Just as she said, 3days later my bf come back asking for forgiveness and pleading that if i dont accept him he would commit suicide. Priestess Ifaa is more than a spell caster. The moment when a woman needs to do what's best for herself even if it's hard for her, and I'm proud to say I did that we are married now with our child.
