ETUDE HOUSE Wonder Pore Range Review

Who has big and clogged pores? *raises my hand*
There are millions of pores on our face. So, to ensure good complexion, pore health is very important! The cleaner the pores, the smaller the pores, the better your complexion.
Also, do you know that our pore size increases in hot weather? And to our pores' demise, Singapore is hot all year round. This translates to people having larger pores, oh man..........
Today, I'm introducing ETUDE HOUSE's Wonder Pore range, with an improved formula! Rest assured that you will be in good hands now ;)
Mint VinegarTM and Anti Pore-Dex Complex are the key ingredients in their ultimate pore minimizing concoction. The duo combination not only removes Dermodex, which are tiny parasite mites that live near or in hair follicles of mammals (eeeks!), but also prevents their future growth! Furthermore, the new formula will be able to balance our skin's pH levels, control sebum output, and remove dead skin cells so that we can have pores that are clean on the inside and tight on the outside. Research has also shown that the number of dermodex in the pores of women aged around 28 years old have been drastically reduced by 57% and 69% in 4 weeks and 8 weeks respectively.
I started my quest for a perfect and clear complexion with the new ETUDE HOUSE Wonder Pore range as I don't want my complexion to be at the mercy of the weather anymore. The Wonder Pore range sounds very promising, being able to control sebum without drying out our skin, apart from minimizing pores, which is exactly what I needed. Furthermore, this range is dermatologist tested, so I feel at ease when trying them out.
Here are more details about each of the six products in the range as well as my take on them after trying out for a couple of weeks! And yes, please use them in the order below:

 Wonder Pore Deep Foaming Cleanser

I expected this cleanser to be very harsh and drying since it is meant to minimize pores and control sebum, but no, it isn't! It foams easily with water to create creamy texture that is very gentle on my skin. This cleanser contains mint beads (mint + eucalyptus particles) that deeply cleanse pores and dead skin cells, giving a very slight minty feeling on my skin which I love! Skin feels very clean, fresh and hydrated after using this foaming cleanser.

Wonder Pore Freshner

The Wonder Pore Freshner (no spelling error!) is actually the most popular product out of the whole Wonder Pore range. It is actually a toner that contains a unique blend of Mint Vinegar and Anti Pore-Dex Complex. It boasts to provide 10 skincare benefits as follow:
  • Removes leftover makeup
  • Lightly acidifies skin to optimal pH 5.5 level
  • Controls sebum
  • Minimises pores
  • Treats uneven skin tone
  • Maintains skin elasticity
  • Hydrates skin
  • Smoothens skin texture
  • Gets rid of impurities and dead skin cells
  • Refreshes and cools the skin
I use this toner with a cotton pad, and wipe it all over my face. It is almost fragrance free and my face feels very clean after using this.

Wonder Pore Deep Tightening Essence

Following their Wonder Pore Freshner, the third step would be Wonder Pore Tightening Essence. This essence contains Mint VinegarTM and Anti-Pore Dex Complex which contracts pores immediately and maintains pH levels for fresh and clean skin all day long. It gets absorbed by my skin easily and it is a pleasure to use on my face.

Wonder Pore Clearing Emulsion

The lightweight Wonder Pore Clearing Emulsion has a water based formula, and it also contains their signature Mint VinegarTM and Anti Pore-Dex complex to create naturally flawless skin from the inside out. Similar to the essence, it restores our skin’s surface pH levels, keeping it refreshed. The texture is a wee bit thicker than the essence, but absorbs as easily upon application.

Wonder Pore Balancing Cream

Here is the last step of my Wonder Pore daily regime - Wonder Pore Balancing Cream! This moisturiser has a gel-like texture and is pretty lightweight; despite being able to ensure that our skin is kept hydrated and supple while our pores contract. It also works to restore the oil-moisture balance within the skin, and this will control the sebum that our pores excrete. I love this moisturiser as it makes my skin very hydrated and plumped up. Most importantly, it does not feel sticky at all! Also, it has a nice aqua scent that I like hehe.

Wonder Pore Black Mask Sheet

The Wonder Pore range also comes with a Wonder Pore Black Mask Sheet to let us pamper our skin once in a while. This new mask sheet contains bijangtan, which is a high grade of charcoal. Charcoal is known to have excellent cleansing and nourishing properties on the skin, and is effective in controlling sebum secretion. The mask sheet is treated at temperatures of over 1000°C for 25 days to fully optimize the benefits of this excellent pore care ingredient. The mask is to be used after the cleansing and toning step for about 15 minutes, and upon removal of the mask sheet, gently pat your skin to let the excess serum be absorbed.

My Review

So after trying the ETUDE HOUSE Wonder Pore skincare range, I am loving it! It caters to my skin concerns well, to make my pores smaller and control sebum in my skin. I like how my face feels clean and yet well moisturised, unlike other sebum control products that leaves my skin feeling tight and dry. All the products in the series are pleasing to use, as they absorb into our skin easily and are not sticky at all. My top 3 favourites are the foaming cleanser, freshner as well as balancing cream. Results-wise, I can't really gauge the size of my pores exactly, but my skin feels smoother and my make-up goes onto my face more evenly than before.
So, if you have the same problems as me - big and clogged pores, as well as oily skin - you might want to try out ETUDE HOUSE's Wonder Pore range. Their products are pocket friendly and effective; I believe you'll love them too! :D
