The Pore-Rest collection from Jumiso is a range of vegan skincare products offering pore care for sensitive skin types.
Exfoliation and good pore care can be difficult for people with sensitive skin, as exfoliating acids and scrubs can be too harsh for sensitive skin and cause sensitivities.
The Pore-Rest range is fragrance free and free from essential oils, while using acids that are more suited to sensitive skin to provide pore care products suitable for sensitive skin.
Here’s what’s in the collection, and what I thought of each product!
Jumiso Pore-Rest BHA Blackhead Clearing Facial Cleanser 150ml
The Pore-Rest BHA Blackhead Clearing Facial Cleanser is a lightly foaming face wash that aims to clear clogged pores and blackheads.
Key Ingredient – BHA
BHA (beta hydroxy acid) is a fat-soluble exfoliant that removes dead skin cells and sebum from pores, to make skin clearer and pores look reduced. BHA is salicylic acid, which is especially good for oily skin types.
By clearing out pores, it helps to prevent spots and blackheads.
My Thoughts on the Pore-Rest BHA Blackhead Clearing Facial Cleanser
For me, this cleanser works and is ok, but I feel like it could prove problematic for some skin types.
It is gentle to use and makes my skin feel clear, but it also leaves my skin a bit tight. It’s not too bad, but it makes my skin tighter than my usual cleansers, and I do have quite oily skin. I think this would be too drying and stripping for dry and combination skin types.
Also, the cleanser is meant to be fragrance free, but it does have a noticeable scent. I can handle it, but there are some who wouldn’t want this scent from a skincare product.
Jumiso Pore-Rest PHA 9 Deep Purifying Facial Toner 250ml
The Pore-Rest PHA 9 Deep Purifying Facial Toner is a vegan exfoliating toner.
Key Ingredient – PHA
PHA (polyhydroxy acid) is a water-soluble exfoliant that removes dead skin cells. PHAs are good for sensitive skin as they are gentle and less irritating than other acids. It also offers moisturisation to make skin healthier and glowy.
My Thoughts on the Pore-Rest PHA Toner
The toner makes my skin feel clear and refreshed. It is very gentle for an exfoliating toner, which I appreciate. I find that with some exfoliating toners, it makes my skin too sensitive to use other products, which can make my skin irritated or burn.
This toner is gentle enough to use alongside other products, but still offers a good level of exfoliation.
I wonder how hydrating it would be for different skin types, though. It was enough for my oily skin, but I think it might not offer enough hydration for dry skin types, especially if used together with the cleanser, which was quite stripping.
It also left my skin a bit sticky, although I don’t mind that from toners too much, as I will follow up with further steps anyway.
Jumiso Pore-Rest AHA BHA PHA Blackhead Wipe Toner Pad
The Pore-Rest AHA BHA PHA Blackhead Wipe Toner Pad is a tub of 70 pads that are soaked in an AHA BHA PHA toner to provide exfoliation. The pads have one side textured and one side smooth. The embossed side offers additional exfoliation and helps to remove more dead skin cells.
Key Ingredients – AHA, BHA, PHA
A mix of AHA, BHA and PHA water-soluble and fat-soluble exfoliating ingredients that help to clear skin. The fat-soluble exfoliator works deep in the pores to remove blackheads and sebum, while the water-soluble exfoliator removes dead skin from the surface to make skin feel smooth and look glowy.
My Thoughts on the Pore-Rest AHA BHA PHA Blackhead Wipe Toner Pad
I really like toner pads like this, as I find them so convenient for days when I don’t have the time or energy to commit to a full skincare session.
The pads are saturated enough with toner for me, with enough on one pad to cover my whole face.
I find they do a good job of making my skin smoother and clearer. Out of this set, these pads are probably my favourite.
Jumiso Pore-Rest LHA Sebum Control Facial Cream 50g
The Pore-Rest LHA Sebum Control Facial Cream is a light gel cream that helps to exfoliate skin and control sebum production.
Key Ingredient – LHA
LHA (lypohydroxy acid) offers gentle exfoliation. The cream contains an anti-sebum complex which helps to effectively control sebum.
My Thoughts on the Pore-Rest LHA Sebum Control Facial Cream
I love the texture of this cream, the lightness is perfect for my oily skin and it sinks in so quickly.
It doesn’t make my skin greasy or shiny, and seems to do a good job of keeping my skin shine-free throughout the day.
