looking for a pore-fect product?
As face mask junkies, we’re always looking out for the coolest innovative treatments that promise skin miracles to blow us away. We recently got our hands on Coalition's Blackhead O2 Bubble Pore Pack and did a live demo on Instagram’s Story (make sure you follow us @altheakorea to check out future shenanigans!) to see how this works. This pore pack brings about a whole new masking experience and we were definitely intrigued to try out this best seller!
the new brand in the house
Caolion was founded and developed by Jinyoung Joo, a sensitive-skin bearer who's set on helping those like her to achieve clear, smooth skin. As the first beauty brand in Korea to be marketing natural skincare, Caolion follows the tagline “it’s not about what’s in it. It’s about what’s NOT in it” and features hypoallergenic products that are free of synthetic dyes, fragrances, and alcohol. These work to restore the skin’s natural beauty via detoxification and enhancing its youthful radiance, leaving the skin smooth, bright and supple. One of their biggest products is the Blackhead O2 Bubble Pore Pack, a charcoal-infused mask that bubbles as it works to remove sebum, extract white and blackheads, purifies and hydrates dull troubled skin. It also contains fine oat and walnut shell particles that exfoliate away dead skin while oxygenated bubbles improve the texture and elasticity of the skin. Phew! That was quite a bit to take in. Let’s get into the cool parts where we show you what it’s like on the skin.

leave on for 5-10 mins
How to use:
Apply onto clean skin and gently massage for a minute or so, then leave on for 5-10 minutes before massaging once again. Rinse off with water after, and pat dry.
The texture and wear of this mask are probably the most interesting part of. It has a light, almost gel like feeling and spreads quite easily, giving off a pleasantly cooling feeling on the skin. Once massaged in, this liquid-y mask starts sud up all on its own like magic! It tingles on the skin ever so slightly (that’s how you know it’s working) and within a minute or two, the once dark gray product transforms into a lighter foam all over the skin.

Caolion’s Blackhead O2 Bubble Pore Pack is both innovative and fun, and ensures that those with sensitive skin types don’t have to lose out too. What do you guys think about this pack?
