[Review] Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Nose Pack


Ever since highscool, I have beed addicted to pore strips. I have black/white heads on my nose, and this is way cheaper than having regular facial treatments. Using pore strips is definitely included on my weekly check list.

Today loves, I am reviewing a brand that is becoming popular in the Philippines. Innisfree 😉

BRAND BACKGROUND: Innisfree is a South Korean skin care line which originates from the words: innis(island) + free. It is a naturalism-oriented brand that promises the use of only the purest ingredients and eco-friendly packaging.

PRODUCT NAME: Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Nose Pack

DESCRIPTION: This Jeju volcanic scoria nose pack intensively adsorbs the deeply embedded black heads and clarifies skin pores.

PRICE: 1 box consist of 6 pore strips is PHP160 (KRW3500/USD3.5)

1. After cleansing, apply adequate water onto nose and peel off the transparent film of the sheet and then adhere the smooth surface side to the middle of the nose and gently press, making it attach to nose.
2. After 10~15 minutes, when the sheet becomes completely dry, gently peel off starting from the edge.
3. After removing the sheet refine the nose area with toner.

USAGE: Use 1~2 times per week. This product can also be used for forehead, nose and chin area.

The box I bought has Korean and no English direction. I removed the white film and it’s not sticking, so I asked Google for help. Luckily, I found an English direction 🙂 Continuing with the use, the strip is easy to apply on wet surface. I only use this on my nose, but again you can also stick it on chin, forehead or wherever you need it. lol! The dry Innisfree nose pack is odourless, though after applying on wet skin, I noticed a strong, herby smell. It might be a little off for some, but I can bear it and the smell actually add to the organic effect, which is what the brand aims. It only took a few minutes to dry, yet I waited until around 10 minutes as per direction. After 10 minutes, I pulled it off my nose, and hell, it felt like it strip a layer of my skin. It kinda hurt a bit, but when I saw the used nose pack I was impressed. It did what it promised, and removed a lot of white heads and black heads. I would want to post a photo, but that’s so gross. My nose felt smoother and I can visually see that it is cleaner. I can’t say it is 100% free of black/white heads, maybe around 90% though.

Easy to apply

Strong odour
No English direction on packaging (I’m not sure if it applies to all)
No physical store in Philippines

REPURCHASE: Definitely, and will try other Innisfree products soon.

So there goes my review of Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Nose Pack. Have any of you tried this or other Innisfree cosmetics? Comment and share your experience, lovelies 🙂

Chili’s Crispy Chicken Tacos Review

Chili's Crispy Chicken Tacos

Tortilla with crispy chicken, smoked bacon, tomatoes, cheese, lettuce, honey-chipotle drizzle and ranch dressing. Served with cilantro rice and black beans.

I’ve been in love with Chili’s for years, but it’s my first take on their Crispy Tacos. It is a main course, and can be seen under the Southwest Grill: Quezadilla, Tacos and Facitas Menu Section. According to the menu, it is a new offering of Chili’s restaurant.

So here goes my review: There are 4 regular mouthwatering tortillas. The chicken is really crispy and it didn’t sag even if it’s drizzled with sauce. The honey-chipotle drizzle has a sweet-tangy taste to it, and it really compliments the chicken. I didn’t really use the ranch dressing, because it is a bit salty for me. In my opinion, the tacos can do without the dressing.

I paid PHP410 ($9.50) for the whole platter, and it is very affordable and fair. Four persons can actually share which is one taco per person, but I doubt one taco is enough. It is awesomely delicious and good for two-person sharing.

I don’t have any rants, but eeerr cilantro rice really? Should I put in the rice in the tacos and make it a burrito? LOL

Overall Rating: 4 out of 5

PurMinerals Overhaul


Cosmetics Overhaul! Am I too proud of the price? Nah! These items original price worth around $92 (PHP4,000) are on 70% off. Yes, you heard it right, I got everything: primer, cc cream, exfoliator & slanted brush for only $32 (PHP1386)!!!

The salesperson told me that Rustans will stop selling PurMinerals brand, hence the super mark down sale. The brand is not so famous in the Philippines, yet these are real mineral cosmetics made for normal to sensitive skin. I even had the chance to test these first before buying and I will not buy if they aren’t good enough.

Grab yours now at Rustan’s in Alabang Town Center mall. Only a few items left. There are a lot of eye shadows, but I’m not into it. Sadly, the eye brow kit and lippies were all gone. Will write a blog review of PurMinerals cosmetics and skincare soon.
