Review: Mini Size U Gift Set (Serum and Astringent)

Last month, I bought Etude House Mini Size U Gift set. Because I have problem with large pores, I decided to give this product a try. The gift set contains 3 items: Mini Size U Pore Smoother Serum, Mini Size U Pore Refresh Astringent, and Facial Cotton. The packaging is made from hard plastic with a flower decoration to open it. The main color for this product is beige/soft orange. I really love the toner's bottle because it comes with a spray (eventhough it is only a miniature size). The facial cottons are different with common facial cotton. It is more high quality and very soft.

Mini size u pore smoother serum

Mini size U is an aesthetic pore care line formulated with fermented rice wine sediment to nourish and tighten pores. Pore formulated serum moisturizes and sudues facial oil with silky smooth finish.
Active Ingredients: Fermented Rice Wine, Vitamin B6, and Banana Extract.

What I love from this serum:
The smell is like baby lotion.
The texture is very light and absorb quickly.
It doesn't give me any new pimples.
Makes my skin very smooth and soft like using a primer.
The sample is in tube 15ml and the amount is last enough for 1 month.

What I hate from this serum:

Mini Size U Pore Refresh Astringent
Mini size U pore refresh astringent removes embedded residues with moisturizing and cooling properties.
Active Ingredients: Fermented Rice Wine Lees and Xylitol

What I love from this Astringent:
Makes my pore slightly tighten after using it.
Give me a cooling sensation.

What I hate from this Astringent:
Smells like alcohol and it is quite strong.

I'm quite happy with the result, because I can see my large pores slowly become smaller eventhough it is only a little (I use this for 1 month). Overall I love the serum and I'm planning to buy again if I run out this sample. Yes, I still have this sample! I only use this at night everyday for 1 month, a little is enough to cover all my face. For the astringent, I already finish it in 2 weeks.

Bad and Good News: The mini size U gift set is already discontinued from Etude House, but the serum itself still available. So if you want to try, you can only try the serum. Me personally think the serum works better than the astringent, so it doesn't matter uf you want to try it without the astringent.

I hope I can help you with my review~~ Thanks for reading, Have a nice day XD

  11. Astringent nya syuuukaaa, enak pas dipake siang2 lagi panas2nya, semprot ini terus adeem. berasa ada cooling efeknya gitu, semprotan nya juga enak+banyak sekali semport 1 muka kejangkau. tapi hasilnya ga keliatan sih, mungkin karena makenya bolong2, cuma 1 minggu doang serumnya rajin pake tiap hari. selanjutnya bolong2 >.<

    1. iya efeknya memang cuman dikit banget, harus rajin pakainya baru bisa kelihatan ^^
