A rainy evening to you! It’s been raining cats and dogs since the weekend, all thanks to the super typhoon. And because of that I had to go home early from work – I might not be able to come home if it were later since I live in a valley. But I was able to, good thing! I had one path left and it was like my lifeline to get home.
So how about you? How have you been?
And since I just finished my requirements document for a web development, I am free to make a post! Yup, work from home. At night. Gotta love my working vibes now. Rested and energized.
I think I was able to build up so much background on this product I’m going to review. It’s the Intense Care Snail Foam Cleanser from Tony Moly.
And I got this for free from a product haul. Eww. Snail slime on your face!?!?!?! I know, I had that thoughts too. Apprently, skin care with snail slime had been a hit in South Korea.
This is how Tonly Moly describes their product:
This premium cleanser cleanses and moistens the skin, making it look brighter and transparent.
Directions: When washing your face, dispose an appropriate amount on your palms, make enough foam, and gently massage into the face, then rinse off with lukewarm water.
Again, with the snail slime on your product. But I promise you it doesn’t smell yucky nor feel slimy!
This cleanser is housed in your regular big and fat white opaque tube with a gold colored cap. It also came in with a box, which is something not normal to Tony Moly’s facial foam cleansers. A tube is 150 ml. I got this for free for a purchase of P2,000, but if you should purchase it separately, you’d probably get it more or less at P800 ($18.50). It is relatively of higher price as compared to other Tonly Moly cleansers. You might get a better deal from friends or relatives in South Korea.
Nothing new with the cap. Easy to dispense and maintain, good for those who are particular with touching the product! I think it is packaged in gold, probably because it wants to emit the “luxury” look and feel.
The cleanser comes in a milky white foam. It has this strong citrus scent that lingers even after you washed it. Those with sensitive noses might need to think twice prior to getting one of these. On my opinion, it didn’t bother me since I’m kinda use with citrus scented facial foams.
One massaged on a wet skin, you’d notice how much a little goes a long way. It is still milky white, and still has the citrus scent. It is very foamy, just like your regular Tony Moly cleansers.
In terms of cleaning, it did fairly well. Just like your average cleanser. My skin did lighten a little, but after prolonged use. And it is very, very moisturizing. So moisturizing that it didn’t do well with my combi skin. It broke me out with a span of a week (2-3 zits) and on my second week, I just had to stop using it on my face. This is not something that normally happens to me. I still have so much product left! I would use this on my other parts of the body such as neck, arms and legs, and it does well on those parts because I’m really dry skinned there.
Would I suggest this? If you’re sensitive to scents, have combi to oily and sensitive skin, you may opt to skip this. But if you live in cold regions and need extra moisturizing everywhere, this is something you should look at. It moisturizes well, cleanses and lightens skin too! It’s worth a try, if you were able to get past the idea of snail slime on your face. Hahaha!
As for me, anywhere but my face!
