My thoughts:

I have received this particular Laneige Pore Deep Clearing Foam sometime early in June this year. However, I am only reviewing it now because I have mixed feelings over it. Don't get me wrong, its not a bad product but somehow it works for me at times and at other times, it doesn't.

During June this year, I was holding a vacation job and I stayed in an air-conditioned place for almost 8 hours everyday. Hence, my skin then was dry, prone to flaking and the powder on my face would crack at times. It was really unsightly. Hence, I put this product on hold for the time being then.

When I went back to school during the semester, the climate in Singapore is very humid and my T-zone tends to get rather oily, about 1 or 2 hours after I leave home. Hence, I thought I would give Laneige Pore Deep Clearing Foam a try.

Unlike the directions given above, I use a face wash net to work up a lather. I find that after using Laneige Pore Deep Clearing Foam, it helps to control the shine on my T-zone such that it only becomes shiny after about 3-4 hours. As I have combination skin with oily T-zone and my cheeks are prone to dryness at times, I realized that if I were to use Laneige Pore Deep Clearing Foam on my entire face, my cheeks would become dry and it feels a little tight. Hence, I tried using it only on my T-zone area and that solved my problem of having dry cheeks! I also realized that by massaging Laneige Pore Deep Clearing Foam not only in circular motions but also horizon and vertical, it helps to keep my T-zone matt for a longer period.

I prefer to use Laneige Pore Deep Clearing Foam at night after makeup remover rather than in the day as it helps to deep cleanse my skin thoroughly. Apart from that, I realized that Laneige Pore Deep Clearing Foam works better in Summer or warmer days compared to Winter or when it gets colder as my skin tends to get a little dry when it gets colder.

I won't be including the usual ratings and whether I would repurchase this product because I really have mixed feelings over it. Whether I like it a not, whether it works a not, it really depends on when I use it.

Who will love it:

- People with oily skin, combination oily
- People whom love the clean feeling that deep cleansing gives
- People living in a country that has a humid climate

Who will not like it:

- People with dry skin, combination dry
- People who experience tightness after cleansing

Laneige Pore Deep Clearing Foam retails at $30 at all Laneige counters.
