Hey guys! Not long ago, I was lucky to be one of the chosen few to review the TIA’M Trouble Drying Pink Bubble Pack! Super thankful for jolse.com for sending this over for me to test out! Although I received the product for free, all the inputs of the product are 100% honest opinions! I used this product a couple of times to be sure, before writing this review. Okay, let’s get this review started!
Packaging: It came in plastic tub with no spatula, simple and clean packaging. Everything is in Korean except the name of the product. Manufacture and expiry date printed on the bottom side of the tub. It comes with an additional plastic lid to cover the opening. The product is coral-pink in colour, which is super pretty! Scent-wise, it smells slightly like soap to me? But it’s not heavily scented.
Ingredients: Some key ingredients for this are Kaolin, Bentonite, Centella Asiatica Extract and Tea Tree Leaf Water. This product also includes pigment, which explains the pink colour. Does not contain any parabens but has fragrance inside. According to cosDNA, does not contain any ingredients with an acne-rating above 2.
Texture: This product looks almost like ice-cream, and it feels very rubbery, jelly-ish in a way? It definitely doesn’t feel like those volcanic clay masks where your finger can smoothly glide across the surface of the product. I tried to get the product using my fingers at first but I realised it’s so difficult! In the end, I had to use one of my spatulas to scoop it out for convenient usage, also it’s more hygienic this way.
Application: Applying it is rather straightforward, just grab the product and create a layer over your skin. One thing I disliked about this was, once you apply the product on to the skin, it starts to form bubbles immediately. So you have strategically apply the product in a sense. I like to start from my nose and slowly move outwards.
Upon Application: I didn’t realize this until my third or fourth time using this, but it’s actually quite cooling. The first thing you’ll notice is the sound of bubbles popping, and you can feel the tingly sensation of bubbles popping on your skin. It’s a very unique sensation, and many times I felt like scratching my face!!
So how you’re supposed to use it, is actually to let the bubbles form and then massage it and leave it on for 5 to 10 minutes. For me, the mask continues to bubble even after massaging it. You can see small spots of “air” on your face after five minutes, I supposed it’s from all the popping of the bubbles.
Results: First thing I noticed is my face definitely got brighter. The redness sort of minimized a little bit but it’s not an extent where I’ll go “this is amazing!” If you look closely, my pores near the centre of the photo sort of diminished in size, so I guess it does help in reducing pore-size! Also, because I used this product on half of my face (one-time), I could feel that after using this product, my face felt tighter.
Conclusion: As you can see from the results, it does help in minimizing pore-size, which is a trouble for most guys, it calms and reduces skin to a certain extent. I would say this product is not bad, it’s also fun at the same time (thanks to the formation of bubbles) I would say it’s great as a gift for someone who’s new into skincare or can be used during sleepovers because it’s fun! However, I think the immediate results can be better, and also a spatula should be included! For that, I’ll give it a rating of 3.5/5
