I’m quite sure most of us are in search of pore refining products, but is there really such a thing? Can pores really shrink and eventually diminish? I recently saw the Wonder Pore line of Etude House. I got curious and I was told that Wonder Pore Freshner is Etude House’s number 1 best-selling toner. I’ve been using it for a few weeks now. Check out my Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Review below.


Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Product Information

This is a total solution product that effectively cleans the inside and outside of pores with its special peppermint extract. This toner balances pH levels, making skin pure like baby skin and preventing skin troubles caused by pH imbalance.


I love Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner because…

  • it comes in a pump bottle (for the 500ml). Although it sounds petty, but the ease of use and the ingenious pump will help you use the toner more religiously – especially if you’re the type who usually skip this step. Also, the pump dispenses the right amount of product – no wastage.


  • it does not sting.
  • it is not drying.
  • skin feels soft and smooth after application.
  • it effectively removes dirt and traces of makeup.
  • it is not sticky. Some toners can feel sticky right after application.
  • it is affordable. It is PHP 898 for 500ml (with a box of cotton pads) or PHP 548 for 250ml. The 500ml could last for almost a year!


  • it did not cause my skin any allergic reaction, irritation, or breakout.

I wish Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner…

  • does not have alcohol content.

Tips on Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner

  • Use after washing the face and before serum and moisturizer application.
  • Use a cotton pad or cotton ball to apply the toner.
  • Two pumps are enough for the entire face and neck.
  • Apply moisturizer after to prevent skin from drying.

Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner Verdict


I recommend Wonder Pore Freshner if you have oily skin, if you don’t mind using skincare products with alcohol content, and if you like plant-based extract. Do not expect for your pores to shrink or diminish. In my opinion, there’s really no one product available in the market that can make the skin poreless. But I believe that Wonder Pore Freshner can minimize the appearance of pores, as it claims, because when pores are clean, they are less obvious. And from my experience, it does a great job in removing traces of dirt and makeup. Also, since pores are left clean, acnes/breakouts caused by dirt are lessened.

Etude House Wonder Pore Freshner is available in all Etude House boutiques.
