I feel like I have spent the majority of my life searching for a magical elixir to tame my unruly pores. I’ve found several products along the way, with some being better than others. But one thing that I have learned on my quest for perfect pores is that there isn’t one mystical product or a one-time fix. The right skincare routine, paired with proper techniques is how I’ve learned to manage my pores, and I discovered a kit of products that are pretty impressive.
Peach and Lily recently sent me the Caolion Perfect Pores Kit to try. Caolion is a Koren Skincare brand and as you may have noticed, I’ve hoped on the Korean Skincare bandwagon recently. I love how innovative and advanced their skincare products are, so naturally, I was excited to try out the collection of pore products by Caolion.
Caolion Perfect Pores Kit Review
The Caolion Perfect Pores Kit is a carefully composed skincare routine, so while I was testing out these products, I put my other skincare products to the side. The Perfect Pores Kit includes a total of 4 products, designed to be used together regularly.
Here’s what the skincare routine looks like:
Freshly Chitosan Foam Cleanser- Cleansing is the first step in this pore perfecting routine. This cleanser foams when it’s applied to the skin. It’s formulated with unshiu (or Jeju mandarin oil) and antioxidants. It balances the skin’s pH, and leaves your face squeaky clean. A tad bit dry for me, so I always make sure to end my skincare routine with the Pore Tightening Memory Sleeping Mask (You’ll see more about it below) or a moisturizer, but I use this cleanser every day before I go to bed.
Premium O2 Bubble Pore Pack- I’m sure you’ve seen those bubbly masks that have popped up in your Instagram feed. This is one of those bubble mask, or micro oxygen bubbles, as they are properly called. The secret behind this highly-effective mask is charcoal powder. Each time I use this mask, I can literally feel the deep cleaning going on, as the I hear and feel the mask fizzing on my face. Once my face is fully bubbly, I like to reactivate the mask by massaging my skin in circular motions. Since this mask has natural oat grain, it feels a little gritty, while gently buffing away dead skin cells and impurities. This is my favorite step in the routine because my skin feels incredibly clean after I’ve washed it off.
Note: The Premium O2 Bubble Pore Pack is a heavy-duty cleaner and since my skin can be sensitive, I only use it 1-2 times per week.
Premium Original Pore Pack– This step is a little intense and honestly my least favorite. As soon as I apply the mixture of Glacial clay, Alaskan glacial water, and menthol, I feel like I’ve taken a plunge into the frigged waters of Antarctica. You are supposed to keep it on for 10 minutes, but I can only take about 3-5 minutes of it before my face feels frozen. The cool thing (pun intended), is that this purifying formula tightens pores and enhances the complexion. Pores hate the cold, so once I wash the mask off, my pores are nowhere to be seen, which I do appreciate.
Note: I’m a baby cry when it comes to this product, so I only use it once per week.
Pore Tightening Memory Sleeping Mask- The last and final step is this dreamy sleeping mask. It has a thick, gel consistency and it applies like a transparent film. This innovative product uses a shape memory technology. Basically, while I’m getting my ZZZs in, it’s working hard to brighten and tighten my skin while I sleep. When I wake up in the morning, my face is glowing. All I have to do is rinse my face with water and apply my CC cream.
All in all, the Caolion Perfect Pores Kit is a keeper for me. I’m really happy with how it leaves my skin and how my pores don’t stand a chance against it!
