Wonder Pore Freshner - Etude House - Good & Bad Review


Let's get started with this review!

Wonder Pore Freshner by Etude House is a toner that people with dry skin will love because, unlike it's typical counterparts, it doesn't dry the face.

This skincare product by Etude House leaves the skin fresh and hydrated which is great because a dry skin can make you prone to breakouts.

But, don't get me wrong, Wonder Pore Freshner is not just for individuals with dry skin. In, fact, it's perfect for all skin types. Even those who have oily skin can benefit from it's daily use. But, don't expect to see it's result overnight. Just like most skincare products, it usually takes several weeks to months before you notice good results.

Another thing I like about this toner is it minimizes the appearance of skin pores. You know, when you have a cluster of big open pores hanging out on your face, they grab people's attention in a gross way.

One thing I like about Wonder Pore is you'll notice visible shrinkage of skin pores after just several days of application.

Do the math. Smaller pores equals less pore clogs, equals less outbreaks.


It drives dirt out of skin pores, removes dead skin cells, and leaves you with a mild cooling sensation on your face. Overtime, regular application of Wonder Pore Freshner reduced pimples and dark spots. It leaves the skin feeling soft and fresh.


10 in 1 Solution


Wonder Pore Freshner by Etude House claims to solve 10 skincare problems:

  1. Balance skin's ideal pH level
  2. Refine skin tones
  3. Keep the elasticity of pores
  4. Remove skin surface's dead skin cells
  5. Cleanse pore insides with cooling effect
  6. Deep cleanse pores
  7. Minimize appearance of pores
  8. Control a large amount of sebum
  9. Moisturize inside and outside of skin
  10. Complete smooth glass-like texture


If you think about it, these are actually the 10 promises Etude House is supposed to keep, which we can also use as judging criteria.

Balance skin's ideal pH level. CHECK!
Refine skin tones. CHECK!
Keep the elasticity of pores. CHECK!
Remove skin surface's dead skin cells. CHECK!
Cleanse pore insides with cooling effect. CHECK!
Deep cleanse pores. CHECK!
Minimize appearance of pores. CHECK!
Control a large amount of sebum. CHECK!
Moisturize inside and outside of skin. CHECK!
Complete smooth glass-like texture. wait a second, let me just touch my face. Oh, I'm feeling a lot of texture. I feel betrayed! Can somebody speak out about this.

No, you promised me 10!

Yep, making that promise is pretty intense. It raises people's expectations.

Again let's do the math. No pimple, no blackhead, no whitehead, equals glass-like texture. There's got to be something wrong with this formula because I see no pimple here, no blackhead, no whitehead, but I still feel those little bumps.


Wonder Pore Freshner (Etude House) packaging review

Wonder Pore comes in in a cute blue-tinged  plastic bottle, encased in a plastic box.

It comes in 250ml and 500ml bottle. The good thing about the bigger bottle is it will last you for up to 6 months. Some people even claimed, it lasted a year.


The Bad Things about Wonder Pore Freshner by Etude House

Wonder Pore Freshner has a lot of positive reviews, but no one is perfect. This cute thing over here does have it's share of flaws.

If you're looking for a magic formula that works perfectly fine for all people, then you've got the wrong bottle sis!

There's a chance that you skin will react to Wonder Pore Freshner. How would you know? This is one of those things that you just have to try to see the results for yourself. I'm afraid there's not shortcut for this.

But, if you're afraid of how your skin will react to a new skincare product, I suggest you start off by applying a minimal amount at a small portion of your skin. This way, you'll be able to tell if you are allergic or if your skin is irritated to Wonder Pore without sacrificing your entire face.

If you have an over sensitive skin, then there is a good chance your face will reject this product.


Starter pack for a start

If it's your first time trying out Wonder Pore Freshner, then you may want to opt for a starter kit instead of the big bottle. This way, you'll save yourself from the trouble of buying a full-sized bottle which you may ironically find irritating to your skin.


Dry skin

It doesn't mean that when you have a dry skin, Wonder Pore Freshner will be your perfect skin mate. Wonder Pore Freshner contains alcohol which can actually aggravate dryness of the skin in some people.


Nothing at all

There are people who regularly use Wonder Pore Freshner who have seen no negative result, but it's quite disappointing that they did not see any positive results as well.

One of the reason we change our routine skincare formula is when that particular skincare product fails to solve our skincare problem. So, if a skincare product fails to show any skin improvement, then, it's no good. Chances are, it will be replaced.


The Smell

Wonder Pore has a strong smell. For some people, it's unbearable. I can't even begin to describe or point out what that smell is. At first, I thought there was something wrong with the product, but in the end, I found out it's the real deal. How did Wonder Pore end up smelling like that?

I'm just relieved that "the smell" is not something you carry around every time you use Wonder Pore. In fact, you'll eventually get used to it. It's a bit weird but that smell has become my golden standard in determining if a particular Wonder Pore is fake or not. Yep, sounds just about right. If it doesn't have that familiar stink, then it's not the real deal.


You promised a glass-like texture!

A lot of people in the world wants that glass-like Korean face. How did they made it so doll-like?

I don't know about you, but me, I never got the glass-like texture Wonder Pore promised! It didn't help even out my skin texture! It's still a rocky road. Maybe I need a better formula. Tell me which other toner makes the promise to deliver a glass-like skin texture.


Overall, even with these negative feedbacks and reviews, Etude House's Wonder Pore Freshner is a very good skincare product. I guess, you'll just have to try to see.
