[Beauty] SKIN & LAB Dr. Pore Tightening Glacial Clay Facial Mask Review

If you're my constant reader, you know that I don't have the habit of doing facial mask every week because I felt that it's very troublesome (although sometimes they are not). 

Few weeks ago, I was once again approached by Natta Cosme to make a review on a clay mask from Korea. I took this opportunity to force myself to feed my skin something better, and then share my review to you guys.

Introducing you the Dr.Pore Tightening Glacial Clay Facial Mask from SKIN & Lab.

About SKIN & LAB

SKIN&LAB is a SPECIALIZED DERMA-COSMETIC BRAND, Developed for Healthier and Clearer Skin based on Long-time Experiences of our Authorized Dermatologist.

SKIN&LAB's Dr. Pore Tightening Collection is designed to minimize the large, open pores & to control sebum and acne-development, sourced with artic ingredients.

This Pore & Sebum Tackling Treatment Mask purifies the skin in & out, as well as minimizes the enlarged pores and firms the sagging pore walls. It has proven to solve the causes of pores and excess sebum secretion.

Act together to treat against potential skin problem. The formula absorbs excess sebum and prevents the appearance of black heads while leaving cooling effect after. It's silicone free and will not clog or fill the pores.

The function of the mask in short:
  1. Pore Contraction
  2. Sebum Control
  3. Acne Treatment
  4. Deep Cleaning
  5. Hydration Balancing

The glacial clay mask is recommended for people who faced these problems:
  • Acne-prone skin with lower hydration level
  • Sagged/wide-open pores
  • Deeply-rooted, dark blackheads
  • Uncontrollable, excessive sebum
  • Cakey look after make up due to dead cells/skin waste

I actually have all of these problems above!! O.O

Main Ingredients

  1. Canadian Glacial Clay - Sebum control, Skin Waste removal, Acne resolving, Calming
  2. Oatmeal - Dead cell removal, Skin softening, Deep Hydration
  3. Tea Tree Leaf - Acne prevention, Acne resolving, Calming

It's just like a lot of clay mask, dries up after 10 minutes (and you will be having difficulty to move your face)


Apply enough amount to cover your entire face or targeted area after face wash. Avoid the direct contact to eyes. Leave the mask on for 10-15 minutes. Rinse with clean water. Follow with skincare routine.

Do note that a minor Sharp-Pain-Like feelings can be detected while the mask activates its pore cleansing effect. It will decrease gradually after.

Do not leave it with open lid after use because the mask dries up easily.

Close up look for the mask on my face.

After 5 minutes

After 10 minutes

For oily skin, it's recommended to use the mask 2 to 3 times a week, and 1 to 2 times a week for dry to normal skin.

My Opinion

The mask is easy to apply, dries up quickly and not too difficult to wash away. It does feel tangling (sharp-pain-like feel) when I apply it the first time, but it decreases on the second time and third time I apply.

Before and after using SKIN & LAB Dr. Pore Tightening Glacial Clay Facial Mask on my first time!

I'm so surprise with the result after comparing  the before and after images side by side! My face gone matte, pores shrunk, scars lighten, fairer and smoother skin, and a better skin tone!

Besides, some stubborn blackheads were pulled out onto the surface after doing the mask, and they came off easily by just lightly squeezing them.

In a nutshell, I'm in love with this mask! It has changed my habit on doing facial mask every week constantly! I strongly recommend it to everyone of you even if you don't have serious acne problem like me!
