Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask.
So, today’s post will be on jeju volcanic lava self-heating clay mask review. Without more delays, let’s proceed forth -Description: The heating pore mask containing Jeju Volcanic Ash purifies skin as a warm sensation opens pores upon application. The Volcanic Lava line contains volcanic soil, a rare natural ingredient that effectively absorbs sebum and cleanses the skin’s pores. This red soil has fine pores of its own, created when lava hardened rapidly after Hallasan Mountain erupted some 6,00,000 years ago.
Price: INR 1,290 (for 20 ml)

The packaging of jeju volcanic self-heating mask is quite unusual with almost all of corners being rounded. It comes in bottle like packaging with an applicator which has soft spiked edges which dispenses the mask, at the same time helps in massaging the skin and taking out any gunk within the pores. Initially, I was sceptical that the applicator might be harsh for my acne prone skin but turns out that it’s the softest thing ever. Moreover, the packaging has a button like mechanism which helps in heating-up the mask. Washing off the excess from the bottle isn’t a hassle as well.
Consistency of the Mask:
The consistency of the mask is somewhat runny and the colour is slightly orange-ish like honey. It tends to drip and a lot of the times it has seeped into my mouth as well. 🤣
My Take on the Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Self Heating Clay Mask:
First and foremost, it’s mandatory for me to tell you that applying this mask takes slight toll on my hands. 😂 I mean, while I massage my skin in clockwise direction, I also have to keep holding the side-button in order to keep the mask heated. As soon as both massaging and pressing the button stops, the mechanism does not produce heat. Therefore, I let the hot content gush out till I’ve covered my face using the mask, after which I start massaging my skin in circular motions. The soft bristles of the brush help in taking out white-heads from the skin while the heated mask helps in closing back the pore. I don’t really think it worked on my black heads. But in case you’re someone who develops a lot of white and blackheads, you can invest into this and use it say twice a week so as to keep your skin gunk-free.
The mask can be left onto the skin for 15 minutes after which you can wash it off using normal or cold water for closing down and reducing the pores further. Unlike other masks that tend to dry up quickly, this has never dried-up in my case and remains more onto the gooey side. Once you splash the face with water, the mask gets off in no second. Post wash, I noticed that my skin felt soft, clearer and slightly brightened. I currently don’t have white heads but one or two blackheads. The mask did not work on the blackheads as I told you before but otherwise it does cleanse out the pores well. In case you have any severe acne onto the face, you can either complete ditch using it for the time being or leave the acne-affected part.
That’s about it for today!
