Now we all know that there isn’t much we can do to make enlarged pores smaller – it’s genetically determined, so we’re stuck with them, and it only gets worse as we age. And being in humid Singapore, our pores are easily clogged and “pulled wider” by all the excess sebum and dirt we come face to face with everyday.

So our best bet to minimising the appearance of pores is to use a clarifying cleanser, that effectively lifts off all the dirt sitting at the bottom of the pit. Some mousse cleansers are said to adhere better to dirt, and are much gentler than your usual clay mask, making it good enough for daily use.

One we’re really intrigued by is ettusais’ Jelly Mousse, which is said to give a thorough pore cleanse, so much so that it’s comparable to using a clay mask. This cleanser first comes out as a gel from the can, and instantly foams up into a rich, velvety mousse – almost like whipped cream – that feels cooling on the skin.

It also boasts a bunch of skin-loving ingredients – chamomile extract, glycerin, collagen and hyaluronic acid – to soothe and hydrate. Plus, it’s got a very familiar and refreshing soda scent. There’s a general consensus in the office that it smells like a particular isotonic drink, but we’ll leave it to you to discover what it is.

The brand says this cleanser is more suited for combination to oily skin types, but it does not feel too stripping on normal skin.

Can’t wait to get your hands on it? It’s only going to be out in April, priced at $25 at all ettusais stores. But in the meantime, you can try the brand’s Foamy Rich Mousse.
