About Face: Jeju Volcanic Lava Pore Scrub Foam

Used to be, if you wanted to reap the skincare benefits of volcano lava, you had to hop on a plane and fly to Hawaii, Italy or even Japan. Well, thanks to the latest skincare company The Face Shop, you can access all of the lava-fuelled skincare products you need straight from Jeju Island in South Korea with just the click of your mouse.

Baffled with why you would want to slather lava on your face? Well first of all, it’s not all hot and red the way you picture it bubbling inside of the volcano. Second, it’s an exceptional and natural, purifying ingredient, which means: it works to eradicate excess oil, remove impurities and environmental toxins and essentially, leave you with smoother, softer, clearer skin. And when it’s mix-mastered into skincare lines like Jeju Volcanic Lava and it’s Pore Scrub Foam, you’re getting a bigger bang for your buck than simply washing away the day’s dirt and grime.

Replete with botanicals and minerals like Jeju Sasa, chocolate vine and Jeju Fusiforme, this foaming scrub helps tighten your pores, enhance your skin tone, remove dead skin cells and improve the overall texture of your face. Not only will you feel squeaky clean when you’re finished, you’ll also notice your face doesn’t have that tight, dry sensation other skincare scrubs and soaps often leave behind.  Plus, you can use its gentle, foamy formulation every day. And that is almost as good as a trip to the volcano itself.

Jeju Volcanic Lava Pore Scrub Foam is available in 150 ml for $15 at The Face Shop stores across Canada and online at thefaceshop.ca.
