Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner


Koreans are known for their pursuit of beauty. They have developed a lot of products to cater different aesthetic needs. Beauty shops are like mushrooms in South Korea. They are found everywhere.

This time, I’m going to review a Korean product. It’s from the Wonder Pore line of Etude House. It’s called Wonder Pore Freshner.

What it’s supposed to do:

  • Restores skin’s pH level
  • Improves skin tone
  • Maintains pore elasticity
  • Get rids  of dead skin cells
  • Cleans pores
  • Lessens pore appearance
  • Controls sebum production
  • Moisturizes
  • Smooths skin
  • Gives cooling effect

How to use:

  • After washing your face, dispense product onto a cotton pad then apply on the face in a circular motion.

Natural ingredients:

  • Sugar Cane
  • Orange
  • Ginkgo Biloba
  • Bilberry
  • Sugar Maple

Price: I got mine for $18 but their website retails them for $8.19

Other information:

  • Korean product
  • Made of Anti Pore-Dex Complex (ingredients for intensive pore care)
  • Liquid


My opinion:

I am on my second bottle now and I really love the product. I use this as a toner after I cleanse my face and before applying moisturizer. It gives a cooling effect which helps me relax. I can’t really say that it cleans pores deeply because while using the product, I still have white heads developing especially on my nose. I have to use nose strips to remove them. Good thing is I never break out using this product. The product has an alcoholic scent too but I don’t mind because I kind of love it. The sebum prevention doesn’t last all day because at the end of the day, I end up with an oily face.


  • Has a cooling effect
  • Acts as a good toner
  • Gentle on skin
  • Contains natural products
  • Doesn’t cause pimples
  • Softens skin


  • Doesn’t totally clean pores
  • Scented
  • Expensive
  • Oil control doesn’t last long

There you go! I hope you find this helpful! 🙂

  1. no wonder why Koreans are all great looking and they have this notable blooming and smooth skin.. “Improves skin tone”.. i think that is what i need.. after hitting so many beaches recently.. my skin tone became uneven na haha


  2. Koreans seem to be obsessed about how the look thus the proliferation of brands and products such as this in the Korean market and now they are slowly invading the local market, too. i could use a pore minimizer, too, to help me get rid of the stubborn blackheads and whiteheads and if this is made of natural ingredients, then i am all for giving it a try. thanks for this informative review!
