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!
