Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo

Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo

Over the last few months I have heard more and more about Korean beauty products and in particular, skincare products but I hadn't ever tried any Korean products myself. When the Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo £30 arrived I was really excited to try it but at the time I was trying out some more skincare to review on my blog so unfortunately I had to wait to try it. 

Over the last few weeks I have been using the Caolion Glowing Duo and have been using it day and night and since I have well and truly popped my Korean skincare cherry, I thought it was time I let you know how I've been getting on. 


The founder of Caolion Cosmetics is Jinyoung Joo who suffered terribly with sensitive skin and had tried every recommended product on the market for a solution but still suffered terribly with her skin. Jinyoung was a woman with extremely sensitive skin who created gentle cosmetic products by tasting each product because she thought that if a cosmetic product could be edible, those with the same skincare concerns as hers would be able to use the product without concern. While other brands were concentrating on fragrance, application and usage, Caolion Cosmetics excluded irritable chemicals used for instant effects and focused on essential moisture and nutrition that promote natural beauty and health of the skin.  

Jinyoung designed skincare even for the most sensitive skin like hers, her artisanship and efforts, even her tasting products, for creating the products was the new beginning of Caolion Cosmetics and Korea's first pure hypoallergenic cosmetics.

I really like the way the duo is packaged with both products in one, the lid is unscrewed to reveal the day cream which has a removable protective plastic cover over it and then the sleeping mask pot unscrews from the day cream pot to reveal the mask, which also has a removable protective plastic cover over it. It is such handy packaging and would be brilliant for travel. Also inside the box is a plastic spatula which makes application more hygienic.

Day Cream - 20g

The texture of the day cream is like nothing I have ever tried before, it feels almost like jelly to the touch but once I had scooped a little out with the spatula it applied effortlessly onto my skin and sank it beautifully. I have extremely dry skin and I was concerned that the product said it controls sebum and balances oil, I assumed it would be more suited to an oily skin, but then it also claims to be hydrating so I was a little confused. 

The first time I used the day cream I could feel that is was very hydrating, my skin felt incredibly soft and hydrated and was left looking radiant, my skin was glowing. I honestly didn't think my skin would look or feel so nice, the cream has such a strange consistency and didn't feel as if it would be as hydrating because I am used to using a rich moisturising cream but this is entirely different in texture to what I am used to but was just, if not more hydrating that other moisturisers I have in my collection. The day cream is also very cooling on the skin which feels lovely, I have been suffering with a horrendous skin condition which leaves me with huge itchy hives all over my face and body so this was lovely to use as it cooled my skin but it didn't irritate it at all. 

The day cream is absolutely incredible to use under makeup, it leaves my skin feeling super soft, hydrated and glowing and my fine lines under my eyes and my pores look so much better, so my skin is perfectly prepared for makeup and my base looks absolutely flawless. 

Night Mask - 30g

As with the day cream, the night time mask has a texture and consistency that I haven't ever come across before, it is a thick gel like formula that is easy to scoop out using the spatula, I was worried the first time I used it that it would pour everywhere, but it doesn't. 

After cleansing and toning my skin, I applied the mask for the first time all over my face and down my neck, the mask felt very cooling and didn't sting at all, it sank into my skin nicely and dried after a while, it does feel a little tacky whilst it's drying but that is standard for this kind of skincare product.  The next morning I used a flannel and some warm water to wipe over my face and remove the mask, my skin looked incredible, it was glowing and looked bright and plump, I was shocked at how good my skin looked after using the mask only once. 

The night time mask is suitable to use daily which surprised me, I have used it everyday and haven't experienced any irritation at all, even when I had the hives on my face. I love the way my skin looks in the morning, and once I have applied the day cream, my skin looks lovely and that isn't something you will hear me say very often because I hate my skin, it is the bane of my life but since using the Caolion duo my skin looks so much better and I have received so many compliments on my skin recently, on every single Instagram live I have done since using the duo, at least 10 people have told me how nice my skin looks and commented on how glowing it looks, and my friends and family have all commented on how nice my skin is looking, my mum even said it didn't look, and I quote "at all dry, it's very glowing" whilst at a recent hospital appointment. 


Considering I hadn't ever tried any Korean skincare products before trying the Caolion Pore Tightening Day And Night Glowing Duo, I 100% want to try more from Caolion and more Korean skincare products and makeup products, because if they are all as good as this, then I will be a very happy bunny. 

I honestly didn't think that the duo would be suitable for my skin, it is so very dry and dehydrated and so much so that until you see me in the flesh, you don't realise just how dry it is and the fact the duo claimed to control sebum made me think it wouldn't be for me, but how wrong I was. 

My skin has honestly never felt so nice, being a blogger I am very lucky in that I get to try a lot of different skincare products and I have tried some incredible products recently and over the years but nothing has ever left my skin looking and feeling so good. My skin is soft and hydrated and my pores and fine lines look a lot better, it is bright and radiant and my makeup applies so much better and looks so much nicer too, I am honestly blown away by the Caolion duo and the way my skin looks because of it. 

I did worry slightly because the day cream contains 20g and the night mask 30g of product that the duo wouldn't last the at least 4 weeks testing period I have to try skincare products but it was longer than 4 weeks I tested the duo for and I still have some product left so there was no need to worry, a little product goes a long way and I think that is down to the consistency of the products, both are like nothing I've tried before but with both, only a small amount is needed meaning the products last a long time. 

I think it's fair to say that I absolutely love this product, I am thrilled with the results and will one million percent be re purchasing, my only negative is that it isn't widely available here in the UK and the same goes for other Caolion products but hopefully that is something that will change in the future but other than that, I really don't have anything bad to say, it is incredible and I urge you to head to Boots and try it for yourself, you won't regret it!
