Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Black Review

With twice the amount of Mentha Arvensis Extract compared to the Wonder Pore Freshner, the Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Black provides stronger pore care and leaves a more refreshing feeling.

I used to see the original variant, the one in the blue bottle, everywhere. A few years ago, I remember a saleslady from Etude House telling me that it was one of their bestselling products and it was almost always sold out. It was really popular back then, even my sister used it. I didn’t know that they released a new variant until recently.

I believe the Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Black was made for those with oily skin in mind since it seems to target most of the oily skin concerns such as sebum control and pore cleansing.

Contrary to the name, the toner is not black but clear in color. It's light on the skin and very liquidy. It doesn't sting my skin at all and it leaves my skin hydrated. It has a subtle scent. It's quick to be absorbed by my skin and leaves it feeling fresh.

Although it doesn’t sting my skin, I don’t like how it has alcohol since I prefer toners without alcohol for my oily skin. With water compromising a majority of the ingredient, alcohol is listed as the second ingredient which means it has fairly a large amount of alcohol so if you’re skin is particularly sensitive to alcohol then this toner might not work well with your skin.
