I haven't been blogging for the past one week due to my Korea trip and now I am feeling recharged and time to get back my ass for work. For today post, is another ALTHEA exclusives products that I receive from ALTHEA. ALTHEA has been my favorite shopping websites for all K-Beauty products. All of the products are authentic and genuine products all the way from Korea!! For the past few months, ALTHEA has come out with their own product line. Read here to check out ALTHEA exclusives that I've blogged about.

When I first received this product, I thought it was a makeup remover. But when I see reviews from my friends, Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser is actually a face cleanser as well. Each time when I receive new products from ALHEA, their new releases always surprise me in terms of the packaging and also the functions of the product.

Texture and Scent

The texture is really watery and but with Jojoba oil base. It was really hard to describe the texture itself, it just glides really easily on the skin. But it does not feel like any other oil cleanser, you do feel a bit tacky once it dries down after removes any impurities or makeup residues. The scent smells so good too, it is slightly sweet scent with natural tea tree leaf scent.

 Full glam of my makeup look to test and try out this Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser.

As per the two GIFs above, Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser removes all the makeup on my face so quickly and effectively. I can easily use one swipe of the cotton pad and it removed everything on my face.



Here I can see my pores has tremendous improvement after use Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser! It just smoothens and cleans my pores with the mint effect ingredients. Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser comes in a cooling effect that lowers the skin's temperature and calms blemishes. This mint effect has antibacterial properties to keep the skin healthy and soothe inflammation caused by acne. Not only that, it helps removes dirt and dead skin cells effectively plus minimizing enlarged pores.

What does it mean like a serum-like formula cleanser? This is because Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser comes in a dual moisture cell system. This is a combination of water and oil in overlapping layers that gently yet effectively remove makeup and dirt residue. Since it comes in a combination of water and oil, it does not clog pores or drying out our skin. Therefore it is suitable for all skin type, even for those is having sensitive skin too. 

When I use just my hands to wipes over the remaining makeup residues, I can feel my skin are deeply cleanse easily with just a few wipes on my face. Not sure if you encounter any blurred vision during usage of other cleansing oil while removing makeup? I Do! But while I using Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser it doesn't cause any blurred vision when I mix with water. It just creates a protective moisture barrier on the skin but didn't leave any leftover residue which sometimes causes blurred vision when you remove makeup.

Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser helps on skin pH balancing as well. A good pH balance is important for healthy skin. Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser help maintaining the skin's pH levels ensures the layers of the skin are functioning at its optimum levels, preventing unwanted moisture loss and dehydration. This Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser is super gentle for skin, a pH-balancing cleanser that helps the skin stay at its optimum health.

Have you guys notice that this Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser does not lather at all when mixing with water!! It does feel weird when it does not lather while use to cleanse your face. Also for eyes area, it does stink a lil when I use it, it starts to stink my eyes after I take video and photo. But also, if you mix it with water while removing your eyes makeup it does not feel any stink to your eyes. Best if you rinse with water immediately too if you use Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser to remove your eyes makeup.

I have been loving this Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser since I start using it. I will use it before my foam cleanser to remove the dirt and impurities on the surface of my skin especially those nose areas and chin area. After using Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser, I will do double cleansing on the area I want to focus more. Before this, I don't usually remove my sunblock on my skin when I'm back, but with Pore Purifying Serum Cleanser I become more hard working on improving my skin cleanliness as well. Make sure my pores and skin are clean and healthy!
