TONYMOLY April 2019 Monthly Bundle Review
This box came with some cute little sample packets that I honestly don’t want to ruin by ripping it open (those pandas!).
I’m Real Sheet Mask in Lotus – Retail Value $3.75
I will never turn down a good sheet mask, and this line from TONYMOLY were some of the first masks I ever tried! This is a little basic, but it gets the job done in terms of a little self-care. The Lotus version of this mask helps with brightening skin, and I had no issues with sensitivity while wearing.
I’m Real Sheet Mask in Cherry Blossom – Retail Value $3.75
This is the same mask as above but in cherry blossom, which is supposed to help with hydration rather than luminosity. Honestly, there wasn’t really a discernable difference between the two, but they were still nice.
I’m Layering Sheet Mask in Peach – Retail Value $5
This mask is neat! It is a two-step with peach slices that add extra love and attention to the place on your face that needs it, and then you put a sheet mask on top that covers your entire face. Peach water, in theory, helps with firming the skin and combatting aging, but that’s not going to happen from one sheet mask. I enjoyed using this, though!
Master Lab Sheet Mask in Collagen – Estimated Value $4.50 (buy a set of 2 for $9)
I really like the Master Lab masks from TONYMOLY – the mask is thin and fits the contours of my face well, and my skin always looks happier after using it. I didn’t notice an increase in the firmness of my skin, but you’re not really going to see results like that from single-use sheet masks anyway.
Peach Punch Sweet Foam Cleanser,10 ml – Estimated Value $0.87 (buy a 150ml tube for $13)
This foaming cleanser smells just like peach candy, which may not be everyone’s cup of tea (but I am into it). I used this as my cleanser after working out and getting sweaty, and it didn’t irritate my sensitized skin and was gentle. It has ingredients like peach extract and olive oil, and I think this would be a fun and affordable cleanser for people with dry skin.
Floria Nutra Energy Cream Mist, 20 ml
This is interesting – this mist isn’t for sale on the TONYMOLY website, so I am not exactly sure how a mini ended up in this kit. This is made with argan oil and safflower extract to provide intense moisture, and even though this is a sample I was really happy with how fine the mist was on this spray. This would make a great hydrating toner, which is exactly how I used it in my post-gym routine.
Vital Vita 12 Brightening Ampoule, Full-Size! Retail Value $20
These ampoules are a new release from TONYMOLY, and this brightening ampoule is made with niacinamide (one of my favorite ingredients!), lemon peel oil, and bergamot oil. Citrus can occasionally irritate my skin but I had no issues with this, and I am excited to see if this can give me results with continued use because the price is right.
Mini Vital Vita 12 Ampoules – set of 4 samples – Buy a set of 6, full-size bottles for $20
These cute little baby ampoules are adorable, but it isn’t quite enough product to truly see results. I think these are a good tester to make sure you’re not going to have any negative skin problems before committing to the full size. I specifically used the calming ampoule on my skin after working out at the gym (red cheeks galore!), and there was no visible decrease in the redness if that is what you are hoping for. These baby ampoules had no size listed for me to do value estimates, but they are SMOL.
This Vita Vita kit contains samples of their synergy serum, their all-in-one radiance cream, their synergy skin toner, and their synergy cream. The Vita Vita line contains a signature blend of 12 different vitamins, and all of the products excerpt the radiance cream also have one of my favorite ingredients in squalene (the radiance cream is made with pearl extract!). I didn’t notice any real results while using these, but they were safe on my sensitive skin and made for the perfect post-gym skincare routine thanks to the small size.
I’m Cherry Blossom Hand Cream, Full-Size! Retail Value $6
This hand cream was rich and nourishing, and I only needed a little bit to cover both hands. I do think if you use too much at once you’ll be left with greasy palms, so start small and reapply as needed.
Cherry Lip Balm, Full-Size! Retail Value $10
Fun story: This adorable, cherry lip balm actually came with a rubber stem attached but in my excitement, I pulled on it too hard and the stem came off. Oops. This lip balm was nourishing, lightweight, and it smelled just like cherries while providing a subtle wash of pink color to my lips. Another thing that makes me happy is this lip balm has SPF 15 protection- sunburned lips are the absolute worst.
The Verdict: I thought this curated assortment from TONYMOLY was awesome! I liked that there were some timely cherry blossom-themed products, and it was a treat to get to try some of their new releases. Some of the samples were pretty small, but as a whole, there were a lot of good-sized products included (and a lot were perfect for tossing in my gym makeup bag!). I couldn’t find a value for everything, but I am not quite sure Tony Moly met the promised $90 value. That being said, I still think the value is great, especially if you appreciate fun beauty products and want to try more K-beauty products.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: This box cost $46.50 ($39 + $7.50 shipping) which means you are paying $4.23 per item (counting the mini ampoule set as one and the synergy skin set as one).
