Anyways, Etude House is a pretty popular Korean skincare and cosmetics brand. It's known for its high quantity products sold at affordable pricing~~ More over, Etude House has some of the cutest packaging/designs. I was overall very excited to try the brand's products!
Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner
This is the 10-in-1 benefits version (original had 7-in-1). Similar to a toner, the Freshner should be used directly after cleansing, twice a day. It claims to help clean and minimize pores, refine skin tone, provide moisture for the skin, maintain ideal skin pH, and more!
The Freshner is 250ml, which, for me, can last quite some time. The toner ingredients are quite safe. The only qualm I have with the ingredients list is that alcohol is listed second. Alcohol tends to be drying for the skin, and in large quantities can be harmful for the skin. Unfortunately, Etude House uses enough alcohol in this product to have it listed second...
This product definitely isn't a magical cure. It won't instantly remove blackhead or minimal pores, and I have yet to see much change. Additionally, the smell isn't that great. Unlike some of the other products I've used, the smell is very simple and a little alcohol-y. It definitely doesn't smell like roses. hahaha.
It does, however, do a good good of removing dirt and doesn't leave behind any residue (it's has a watery, toner-like consistency). Lastly, I would say that this product can help control oily skin, as the alcohol helps remove the oil on the skin. My skin has definitely felt less oily after using it. Considering all the alcohol in this product, it's not too drying (leaning more towards the moisturizing side) and leaves my face feeling fresh, soft, and smooth. However, moisturizer is still a must!
