Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay Mask Cica was purchased by Cosmeperks.
This product is part of a brand new collection of colored clay masks aimed at different skin problems or concerns, and launched with the purposed of being used for multimasking.
Since I am an avid user of clay masks and they still cause a lot of damage (even the more gentle ones) I thought this opportunity would be a great one, if the product delivers what it promises that is.
Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay Mask Cica contains Jeju volcanic cluster and madecassoside. The volcanic cluster green mask is for sebum control and Cica care. Cica is a product widely known for caring for sensitive and damaged skin.
Actually, all the masks in the collection are for sebum control, so you can always count on that and just focus on your other concerns.

Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay Mask Cica Review:
The package has a cute note, which I appreciate, on the lid. It says that they use peel of persimmon (5%) and 95% recycled paper to make this package. On the opposite side (on the bottom lid) they say that they printed it with soy ink, which is less harmful for the environment than any metal based ink.
As usual, there’s a small protection which we have to peel off. The product isn’t overflowing in the package, you can see a bit of air in there, which actually makes it comfortable (since it doesn’t just sneeze on your hands when you open it).
Here you can see a simple swatch. I can tell you right away this Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay Mask Cica is way more gentle and way easier to spread than any other clay mask I have ever tried. And you can also see it seems more greener on the face than on the package!
For the first test I will do a half and half application. On one half I will apply the cica color clay mask, and on the other I applied Innisfree origianal clay mask. The reason I chose to do this first is because other clay masks so far always make my skin a little red or bothered on the sensitive areas, and thanks to another product I was using I have a lot of small pimples that will get irritated with harsh products. So I decided to take this opportunity to test just how good this product is on sensitive skin care!
Here you can see in detail how my face is, no filters, big derp-y face, enjoy because I don’t show myself like this often. And on the second photo you can see the application of both products on the face. The green one is the new Cica volcanic color clay mask, the grey one is the old Jeju volcanic mask which I love. I applied the grey one first since it needs to stay for 15 minutes and the green one for only 10.
You can see here that, compared to the normal clay mask, the Innisfree Jeju Volcanic Color Clay Mask Cica dries in a more gentle way and it doesn’t tug on the skin as much as the other one. Actually, it doesn’t tug on the skin at all! At first I thought it hadn’t dried well, but I touched my face all over and it was completely dried. And yet I can talk as easily as if I didn’t have any mask (well, almost). I barely feel any discomfort.
On this photo you can see that the new volcanic mask washes off easier than the classic one. Talk about a time saver! I always struggle to remove these masks since they seem to never leave the skin and to get everywhere. But the new mask (green) washes off in a really comfortable way.
This here is the final result. You can see that both masks tugged the dirt out of the pores (and the sebum to the surface of the pimples – which might not seem like something you want, but you do want to remove the sebum rather than leave it there).
What you cannot see, and this is why I have to write this, is that my skin is not dry on the side where I used the new formula. I can feel this both when I smile and when I touch my cheeks with the back of my hand. My pimples are not mad at me, they are not sore., also in comparison with the normal clay mask. On a non-sensitive day like this one, I didn’t get any irritation, but my skin does feel sensitive to the touch with the normal clay mask.
Next stop, actual multi-masking (as they suggest in the package)!
Do take note that I did this on a separate day. This kind of mask usually shouldn’t be used more than one time per week. And on this particular day my skin was sensitive, so you’ll be able to see a bigger difference between masks.
Here you can see the face map of the most sensitive parts for today, which are the parts I want to apply the cica care on. The comparison between these and the less sensitive parts is what you want to pay attention to in the end result. And I apologize for the photo, I had a major derp.
This is the result of the mapping I did, and these are the masks I applied together. Of course you already knew about the Cica color clay mask, since this review is about it, but the other mask you don’t have any review here to follow, so I decided to show it anyway.
It’s from the same general line (Jeju volcanic, pore care), but from a different collection (other than the new collection with a lot of gentle caring masks, they have the collection of the clay masks previously reviewed on Cosmeperks, and this one in this picture).
In this photo you can see the general result of the multi masking. The area around my nosedrills is redder than the rest of my face, and the area where I applied the Cica clay mask isn’t any more sensitive than it was before.
I will be honest and admit, I want to just use this mask all over my face! It’s so gentle and it doesn’t hurt at all (all the other clay masks hurt my skin a little tiny bit). And my skin feels cleaner after using it, as it feels with the other hurting clay masks. Although, pore wise it doesn’t clean the black ones as deeply, but it cleans normal pores and exfoliates ever so gently.
So, I think I will literally start using it all over my face from now on!
