As promised, here’s my first Tony Moly product review. I’ve got a looong way to go, and I’m aching to review each and everyone of them (I hope) soon!
Tomatox Magic White Massage Pack is one of Tony Moly’s best sellers. Hence, I gave it a try to kick start my series of Tony Moly reviews.
Tomatox’ main ingredient, tomato solution, claims to deliver instant brightening, massaging and skin clearing mask effect.
To use: after cleansing, apply on towel-dried face and gently massage for about 1 to 2 minutes. After massaging, leave it on your face for 5 to 10 minutes. Rinse out with lukewarm water and pat with towel. You may use it 2-3 times use per week, or use everyday as needed.
Pretty Packaging, Easy Application
Given the product name and main ingredient, Tomatox’s packaging is shaped like a real-life tomato! I love the packaging to bits! It can double as a paperweight or a whatnot display.
Inside comes with a spoon applicator, making it much easier to scoop the product and spread it thoroughly on the face.
Stinging Sensation, Soft & Refreshed Skin
Albeit very bearable, I noticed a little stinging sensation whilst letting it sit for about a few minutes. Perhaps, it may be due to the acid content, which is natural for the tomato’s pH. Thus, I strongly suggest to do a patch test first prior to slathering the product all over your face, lest your sensitive skin might react adversely causing redness and irritation.
I love the cold feeling nevertheless, which made the application such a breeze.
Since it’s a thick mask pack, it took a tad time for me to wash it off completely. I like how my skin felt soft and refreshed thereafter. I’m not sure about the “brightening effect”, but this review may give you some enlightenment (pun not intended).
I really love its subtle yet luscious fruity scent! I found it really relaxing and invigorating.
For me, it’s a perfect mask to soothe dull, tired skin. Thank goodness, it didn’t react badly with my oily, acne-prone skin type!
Price is at Php 548.
Tony Moly is available at major SM stores in Metro Manila.
