Don't let the packaging fool you - these Tony Moly creams are pretty good
Tony Moly is famous for their fun, fruit-shaped product containers for skincare. There are blueberries, bananas, peaches, and even bamboo! I recently got to try these two apples, the Red Apple Hand Cream (P378) and the Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream (P528). Just look at these cuties!
The Tony Moly Red Apple Hand Cream contains 30g of sweet apple goodness. This hand cream is formulated with honey and butters, which provide moisture to my dry hands. It has a very thick texture which makes it a bit hard to apply evenly, but it doesn’t leave any greasy residue. The upper half of the apple twists to open, and there’s another cap inside to prevent the product from drying up. The smell of apples is quite addicting! I find the packaging too bulky to carry around though so I leave it on my study table instead. It looks so cute there too!
The description on their website says that Tony Moly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream “maintains skin's natural firmness and brightens the skin as well. It is an effective exfoliator that accelerates skin's natural exfoliating process with AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid). This acid loosens the bind between the skin and the dead cells. As a result, it soothes the outer skin revealing a fresh and silky skin texture.
To use it, cleanse first then apply the cream generously to dry areas all over the face, avoiding the eye and mouth area. Gently massage it for one to two minutes and leave it on for 30 seconds. Carefully rub your face in a circular motion and wash it off with lukewarm water.
Similar to the hand cream, a secondary cap seals the product and keeps it from leaking after the top part of the apple is opened. The peeling cream is very liquid-y, kind of like a body lotion in a tub. This one has 80g of product which smells faintly of green apples.
When rubbing the product onto your skin, you'll see the dead skin cells come off like eraser dust, and even more will be removed after leaving it for 30 seconds. I exfoliate my face often so it didn’t remove as much dead skin cells but when I used it on my foot, grabe, the dead skin cell bits were darker in color and more numerous! It's a nice, gentle peeling cream though, so no need to worry about needing to endure pain or discomfort in the name of beauty.
