Etude House's 10 in 1 Wonder Pore Freshner Review

REVIEW. OO, REVIEW.
It has been more than a year since I attempted to review a beauty product.

 I'm more than glad that I have found a product that kept my acne prone skin at bay so I'm sharing this to you. After several months years of using this, I am now concluding that this toner from Etude House, that I bought on impulse last December 2013, is a vital skincare product for me now. I only use two by the way: this toner and dove soap. Minsan bb cream pero iba na 'yon for cleansing, dove beauty bar (dove girl for 10 years and counting!) at ito lang. 

I have an oily, sensitive and acne prone skin. I can't even count how many times I had an acne breakout but then, I realized that those breakouts are because I used products that irritated my skin (such as facial, facial cleanser, excessive oatmeal scrub etc.) Cycle ng subok-breakout-balik dove. This is the reason why I now seldom try products on my face kasi okay lang 'yung paisa-isa o sige, pa tatlo-tatlo (or more minsan pag may topak ang fez ko! haha!) pero wag na ulit breakout. 

Oh, and I have visible pores on both my cheeks especially when it's hot but I've given up on wanting them to appear smaller. Shemay, daming issues sa buhay. Hahaha!

Until one day in December 2013, a friend mentioned that she bought this Wonder Pore Freshner and it worked "wonders" for her.

I, being the impulsive kind, bought one too and the largest size at that worth around P 900.00. I was thinking that if this worked for her then it must work wonders for me too.

I used it daily but my pores didn't appear smaller. Even if I didn't think that it worked, I still used it daily because it's worth P 900.00. Continued because even if it didn't work, there were no ugly effects. Sayang pera pag hindi nagamit eh. 
Until I ran out of the product in the last week of October 2014 and started developing whiteheads and pimples on my face again. Suss. Hormonal lang 'yon that was aggravated probably because I wasn't able to wash my face when we climbed Mt. Pulag (first week of November 2014). The whiteheads were because I only used wet wipes to clean my face for three consecutive nights. Why does this sound so unhygienic now????? Haha. Oh well, because mountain climbing. No need to explain myself further.

Days pass and it was getting so crazy (I
t wasn't the breakout kind of crazy pero bumalik na naman 'yung pa isa-isa or more pa nga ata! haha!) that I decided to repurchase this and from the 7 in 1 product of 2013, the Wonder Pore Freshner is now a 10 in 1 product. It was then that I realized that on those days when I thought this wasn't working, it was. I didn't develop pimples and whiteheads as frequent as I used to while using this.


What made me decide that this is now a skincare essential for me?


Because similar thing happened just recently. I wasn't able to repurchase again because I was busy and I went to Leyte for three days. Gosh, hindi dahil may allergy ako sa lakwatsa! Wag naman sana. Haha. At kung siguro, allergy nga, buti na lang may Wonder Pore Toner (... at dove beauty bar. Dove review din nga pala 'to. hehe)! Anyway, I was only able to repurchase when I got back and those whiteheads that developed on my chin started to disappear and I noticed no new ones were developing. Disappear ba talaga? Parang ang weird ng explanation na may disappear tas developing ahaha pero ganun na nga.
Buying the 500 ML bottle, although worth almost P 900.00, is a lot more economical than purchasing the smaller 250 ML bottle worth around P 500.00.

1st - Free cotton pads
2nd - The pump of the 500 ML container works well in dispensing the right amount of product in one use. 250 ML container doesn't have a pump.

 Isang pump lang para sa isang gamitan, 500 ML lasted around 10 months but the 250 ML lasted only around 4 months and it's all because of the pump.

Wonder Pore Freshner Toner may not have reduced the appearance of my pores but it has managed to make my skin less prone to pimples and whiteheads so I'm definitely buying this again. Kahiya pls. Oo na, hindi naman perfect 'yung skin ko pero ang mahalaga talaga sa'kin e 'yung wala ko masyadong pimples, whiteheads kaya kering keri! 

For pores, primer na siguro, noh?
