Review: Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner

Well.. my skin type is oily and I really hate my visible big pores! It's very very annoying!! So, it's the main reason why I tried so many pore care products recently, and one of them is.. Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner. Actually I got this product from mbak Felisia when I did a christmas swap with her~

I've spent a bottle of Etude House Skin Mal:gem in Smoother before, but I didn't repurchase that toner because I need a toner to help minimize my pores (^~^)

Product description~

And as usual, all the descriptions are mostly written in Korean mehh >_<
But I love the motto of this product: "I'm the Wonder Woman for you pores." lol (≧▽≦)

So let's see whether it's true or not~~

There's some cute illustrations on the back of the plastic box~ But unfortunately I didn't understand Korean at all, sorry. (≧д≦)

The ingredients~
As you can see in the pic above, it still contains alcohol! So.. if you dislike alcohol in your skin care products, you might want to stay away from this product as well.
But for me, fortunately I didn't feel a dry feeling in my sensitive skin at all ^^

Well, this toner comes inside a translucent light blue plastic bottle.
It's quite thin and not heavy~

Etude House claims that Wonder Pore Freshner is 7 in 1 Total Pore Solution :
- Deep cleanse pores
- Maintain ph 4.5 +/- 1
- Control a large amount of the sebum
-Minimize appearance of pores
- Refine the skin tones
- Keep the elasticity of pores
- Moisturize inside and outside of skin
I also heard that this toner is anti pore-dex~

I got mine in 250 ml, but it doesn't come with a pump like the 500 ml one!! ∑(゚Д゚)

This toner is watery and colorless, it's not sticky at all, and very easy to absorb in my skin. But for me it smells very bad, too strong and weird!! It's difficult to describe the smell, but I think it smells like 'tapai' (?) * for international readers, you can google it for more info about 'tapai' lol xD '

So, what's the result? ^^

After I use this toner twice a day (in the morning & evening) almost a month, now my pores are still obvious as usual, but I found this toner is slightly minimize my pores and of course it's only for a while *sigh~ Σ(~∀~||;)

The result~

It's true that this toner could control a large amount of my sebum, but my skin looks less oily only for about 2 - 3 hours! My skin also feels so smooth after use this toner. Actually I also have some milia(s) on my face and I guess this toner didn't help to solve them at all!
But it's very very true that this toner could deep cleanse my pores! I use this toner after washing my face, and after tap the cotton pad with this toner, and also rub gently (only on my pores). Then, this is how my cotton pad looks like..

Sorry if it looks so disgusting lol

Overall, I'm quite happy with this toner and this is my favorite toner for now. But I usually get bored easily, so I don't think to repurchase this product.. But I'll consider the result on my face after 2 - 3 months later, or maybe after I spent a bottle (≧▽≦)

 Love :

  5. Thank you very much for this review Lala (really well done btw)!(^^)b
    This toner have been en my wislist for quite long but now I'm hesitating whether to buy or not >__<UUU
    Although my skin would appreciate a good cleaning I have fear that dry my skin(my skin type is combination/dry) and that may not help my blackheads u__u
    Hope you have a nice day and thank you again for the review!;3

    1. You're welcome, I hope this post could help you ^^
      Umm actually I'm not sure for combination - dry skin types, but I recommend you to try the miniature sample of this product first~
      Thank you :) xx

  6. aku masih bingung antara EH Freshner ini atau Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Toner. Kalo Inn seems more promising and g ada alkoholnya, tapi lebih mahal ~o~

    1. iya juga sih, tapi aku jg belum pernah nyobain yg innisfree, maybe nyoba miniature sample nya aja dulu buat mastiin cocok apa gak? ntar kan sayang kalo udah terlanjur beli yg full size ^^

  7. coba say simpen toner di kulkas, efek dingin kan lebih bisa ngecilin pori2, tp aq pernah baca artikel kl pori2 termasuk genetik jd gak bisa total ngecilnya

    1. iya udah pernah aku coba, tapi tetep sama aja >_<
      hehe oke deh thanks infonya yaaa :)

  8. please tell me , where i can see the due date of the product... in my case i bought one but in the bottom of the bottle said the due date ????? please help me !!!!

  9. ak juga udah coba, lumayan ngefek di ak sih hehe

  10. ini beneran ngefek ya?
    jadi pengen coba :)
    bingung deh anatara ini sm skin malgem @__@

  11. aku uda pernah nyoba ini,,,
    tapi ga ngefek ke aku,,,
    mungkin bener karena faktor genetik deh,,, pake apapun ga bisa maximal hasilnya

  12. sis,, punya milia juga?
    bintik" kecil kayak jerawat yg di daerah kantung mata itu khan ya??
