SPOILER ALERT: I don't have my own photos of this product because I ended up giving it away…tells you how I really felt about the product…>_< I'm going to attach stock photos of the product from innisfree's website so you can get an idea of what it looks like…anyways, onto the review!

I bought this from ebay for about $11. The cleanser came in a squeeze tube with 150 mL of product.  The package is matte with a combination of dark and light yellow. There is a picture of a Jeju volcanic rock on the front of the package:

A little seriously goes a long way with this product. This cleanser lathers like a dream! I enjoyed using this product when I first got it. It was gentle on the face, but I could feel how amazing and effective it was at cleaning my skin.  It also smelled really nice too. I honestly haven't been this impressed with a cleanser in a long time!

BUT as you can tell from my spoiler opinion changed after a few days of using this product. Around the third or fourth day, I started to notice one or two breakouts on my face. Now, I didn't think much of it at the time because I would occasionally get a pimple or I kept washing my face with the cleanser. It wasn't til about a week after, I noticed that I started to get more pimples ALL over my face. Not only that, they were the big, red, painful kind... :/ I knew that the face wash was the only culprit because it was the only change in my regimen at that time.  I've read online that sometimes when you use a product, you can break out and go through a "purging stage" before it gets better, but I really didn't want to continue on with the product at this point. So sadly, I had a full bottle of this cleanser that I couldn't use anymore. It was unusual for me to break out from a product, because my skin isn't sensitive at all. I really never had that many problems when using products on my face, but I noticed in the past few months that my skin has been more sensitive than it used to be!

Anyways, because this face wash broke me out, I won't be buying this product again. It really bummed me out that it didn't work out for me because I really did like the product. It's marketed for oily skin and I have oily/combo skin, so I'm not sure why it didn't work out for me. I wouldn't go so far to say that I wouldn't recommend this product, it was a really good cleanser aside from my reaction to it.  I read on some of the Amazon reviews that this product broke others out as well, so if you do want to try it, tread with caution.
