Skin Game Pore Rescue Mask Review

January 23, 2019

This post is long overdue. This is my first ever PR gift that I get from Skin Game. I've been following their account through Kak Vania, and their Pore Rescue mask has been a long-time wishlist ever since then. So you can imagine how happy I was when Skin Game's team reached out to me and decided to give this mask to me as a gift.

I was going to give this mask a go right away, but I got two small bumps on the bridge of my nose and on my chin as well, aka all the area where I would apply the mask so I had to wait and treat them first before trying the mask. Few days ago I finally managed to gather all the materials and now I can write to you the full review.

Pore Rescue mask is one of Skin Game's products from the Facial Care Series. It's a mixture of mineral powders based face care consists of kaolin claycalcium carbonate, and zinc oxide. Its target is clogged pores, blackheads, and whiteheads. If you're a long time reader of mine and a good follower in my beauty account (@beautywithdummy), you must know that I deal with whiteheads. It's a topic I heavily fight for the past few years. Perhaps it has something to do with having a large pores. Back when I wasn't really into taking care of my skin, I only extract the whiteheads once a year. So you can imagine the damage it took on my pores for letting dirt occupying my skin.

This Pore Rescue claims to get rid of all the dirt, oil, and even dead skin cell that has built up. It also reduces blackheads and whiteheads while unclogging congested pores.

It has the form of a powder, that quickly changes into paste once you mix it with water. I usually mix it with just water, but I've heard people using rose water as well. But I'm good, I'm fine with just water. Kaolin (also known as Chinese clay) is best known as white clay, even though this type can be found in all different colors. Because of the composition of the minerals and others (less absorbent) effects, kaolin is likely to be advised for the more sensitive skin. It also doesn't draw as much oil from the skin.

I get this tips from @adpbeauty to apply exfoliating toner 20-30 minutes before using a clay mask. The chemical exfoliant will dislodge the gunk stuck inside pores. And it will give the clay an extra kick by loosening up all the clogged pores before the mask works to absorb all of the impurities.

I know that picture looks so gross but I've never seen a mask this effective. The first picture of my nose is actually how my nose looked like before I applied the mask. The mask draws out impurities as it claims and make my whiteheads visible so I can rub them off easily.

I will empty out the whole jar to see if there's any significance change on the sebum production because I've seen their demonstration that this mask also holds back excessive oil on your face.

  1. Thanks for your sharing 😊 I'm following your blog if You wanna following back I'm very happy 😊

  2. Wow, It's really satisfying to look when those whiteheads comes out from the pores. But is it really okay to directly rub them off or we can use peel-off mask after use this product?

    1. Ooh, I haven't tried that method to use pore strip after using this mask! I rub it using a rubber face brush like the ones you can find at Miniso and I don't rub it too harsh. The whiteheads naturally fall off the skin!

      Perhaps later I will use the pore strip after using this mask.

  3. looks promising! thanks for sharing!
