I've always wanted to try out Korean skincare/cosmetics. I only really heard of Tony Moly prior, but the products looked adorable. Which begs the question: why isn't America stepping up their cute packaging game?
Here are my first impressions of Memebox's Tony Moly Superbox #66:
Panda's Dream White Magic Creme ($12):
It's a brightening cream that is suppose to moisturize while evening out skin tone.
The packaging is ridiculously cute being a panda. I had hopes that this would be amazing. Unfortunately, not the case.
The product has a whipped texture and super light feeling, but not necessarily moisturizing. It also applies patchy and like a white cast... I'm tan so the cast was very apparent, but didn't show under foundation.
Egg Pore Shiny Skin Soap x2 ($9):
Can be used as a cleanser or pack. Made from fertile eggs and is suppose to provide, moisture, nutrition, deep cleansing,sebum control, and pore care.
I have yet to use this. The concept is interesting and even has a egg carton package.
Luminous Goddess Aura Beam ($16):
Its a luminous gel that provides a supple glow to the skin and minimizes skin imperfections.
I was expecting the product to be more pearly than what it is. It feels very petroleum jelly like in texture, which is where the dewiness originates. The scent is powdery.
Back Gel Eye Liner Long Brush ($10):
Gel liner with a built in brush. Out of the colors that I could have received, I got Choco Brown.
Choco brown is a medium brown with frosty white shimmer. The gel itself is very creamy and the color is long lasting, but the shimmer migrates if you rub it.
Apple Tox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream ($11):
Peeling exfoliate, massaging, and moisturizing cream.
I've never used a peeling exfoliate product before, but was always intrigued by it. It works brilliantly and smells refreshing and fruity. When using it is slightly tingles.
Mini Peach Lip Balm ($7):
Peach and Shea butter formulated lip balm.
This has an intense peach scent, very reminiscent of childhood gum I use to get at an Asian supermarket. The packaging also reflects a peach. The texture is very thin and not the very moisturizing sadly.
Delight Tint Crayon Neon ($8):
UV light reactive Neon lip balms.
Color I received was Neon Orange. I goes on more like a peach, than neon orange, on my lips. I don't have a UV light on hand so I can't test the reactivity, but I'm definitely using this at the next Amine convention rave I go to. The texture feels like a very thick but non-sticky lip balm and smells like gummies.
