Skin Care | Tony Moly Sheet Masks


Okay so, not long after moving my cousin and his wife came to visit us and they bought some bits and pieces with them. Just imagine my excitement when I discovered that they'd left me some TONYMOLY sheet masks! Korean beauty is something that I have been interested in for years and I have done so much reading into it, and of course, TONYMOLY will always be a brand you come across when reading into Korean beauty and skincare.

Alicia kindly gave me two I'm REAL sheet masks; one for clear skin and one for skin purifying. The first one I tried was the Clear Skin sheet mask. Clear Skin is a sheet mask that is infused with rice extracts and natural oils, designed to provide elasticity and brightening effects for the skin. Then one night in bed while feeling a bit shit, I threw on the Skin Purifying sheet mask which is infused with mineral oils and fermented rice wine extracts, that is designed to refine skin for a smoother complexion. So both sheet masks work in the same way; make sure your skin is clean and dry, apply the mask for 20-30 minutes and pat the excess into your skin.

So the TONYMOLY sheet masks are made up of 3 layers that are soaked in three different types of essence; they come in water-type, microemulsion type, and milky lotion type, all of which are designed to maximise the hydration for your skin. I genuinely have no idea which essence I had in either. Both of these masks were freezing cold, which is insanely soothing on the skin and it's something I really do enjoy. TONYMOLY give you the tip to stick them in the fridge for an extra cooling and soothing effect... Unless you like feeling like you've stepped into a freezer I really think you can skip this step. These masks are absolutely saturated so you have so much excess left over when you remove this, now I leave mine to just sink in naturally.

Quick Update: I was worried about the availability of TONYMOLY products in the UK, however instantly I've found that they are available on Cult Beauty, Selfridges or a website dedicated to Korean beauty products!
