#RIXREVIEWS: NARUKO Tea Tree Purifying Clay Mask & Cleanser in 1

One of the perks of having attended Glamcon MNL last January 21st was being able to get free samples from participating brands. One of those brands was Naruko.

Naruko was founded by Niuer, whom everyone in Taiwan refers to as the “Beauty King”. The brand was awarded the “Best New Brand 2010” in Taiwan and China, and for three consecutive years (2008-2010), it was considered as “the most outstanding contribution to beauty”.

The brand has established itself as distinctive and highly regarded, so I consider myself fortunate to be able to try at least one of their most sought-after products.

Product Description: This high performance cleanser has a triple-cleansing formula: deep impurity-lifting clay, fundamental cleansing cream, and gentle exfoliation. It clarifies deep into the pores, removing dirt and oil which prevents acne formation. In combination with the hydrating formula, it leaves the skin soft, smooth, and moisturized.

Tea tree is known for its healing properties, and clay masks are really good at eliminating dirt, bacteria, and sebum. I think this will be perfect for combination to oily, and acne-prone skin. But that does not mean it can’t be used by people with dry skin. This product is made for all skin types.

The sachet that I got from the Naruko booth at Glamcon MNL contains 7g of the product. According to the instructions, I only need to use a quarter-sized amount, so the frugal side of me rejoices as I can use it several times more.

This product has a thick, mousse-like consistency that has tiny blue granules, which also act as a gentle exfoliator. So this is a mask, cleanser, and exfoliator in one.

It was not too sticky when I applied it all over my face, avoiding the eye and mouth areas. I focused on my T-zone, since it’s the part we get super oily at. As you may already know (if you’ve been a reader), I really love anything minty. This mask has that minty, citrusy scent and sensation that I enjoyed.

I left it on my face for 5 minutes, rubbed it gently, and massaged it with water until it was completely rinsed off. My face felt really smooth, clean, and refreshed. My face did not feel dry afterwards; it still felt moisturized and healthy.

Naruko Tea Tree Purifying Clay Mask and Cleanser in 1 is also alcohol-free and paraben-free, and contains gentle ingredients that makes it safe to be used everyday.

UPDATE:

The second time I used it, I added more product on my face. I spread it evenly and unlike before, I let it sit on my face longer.

My skin felt so good and relaxed with its cooling sensation. My skin also felt tight, which I loved, because I knew it was going to make my pores less visible.

I waited until it completely dried up. I washed it off after about 10 or 15 minutes.

The next question would be, would I buy the full size?

A 120g tube costs P399 at Zalora, but Lazada is having a Buy 2 Take 1 promo for only P799 for a limited time! You may wanna grab this amazing deal!

The price is pretty reasonable for its quantity, as well as for its quality. Given that it’s a topnotch foreign brand, this price point is something we, as consumers, may consider or view as acceptable.

Now here’s something that might help you decide:
