Beauty Bender Seoul Act 2: Who is Tony Moly

Tony Moly is an über popular cosmetics brand in Korea. In the three days I was in Seoul, I probably saw six Tony Moly shops, packed to wall-to ceiling with some of the cutest freaking packaging I’ve seen in the beauty industry. Normally packaging this cute sets off a red flag in my head: If they spend all of this money on packaging… what are they doing with the actual product?

Turns out, a lot. I’d finished shopping for the day but wanted to get something from TM. I didn’t want to be lured by the little tomatoes, apples, or ice cream packages promising younger this or smoother that. I wanted product, not toys… even though they were what lured me into the store (I’m such a sucker, and apparently a hypocrite…). Then I saw the strangely adorable…egg? Yep, it’s an egg. Meet the Tony Moly Egg Pore Tightening Pack.

Tony Moly Egg Tightening Pore Pack

Get on my face, mystery egg goo.


Results: nothing short amazing—I’m not even kidding. It contains camellia extract and, yes, egg, and leaves your skin feeling virtually resurfaced. You know how they say pores can’t be opened or closed (whoever they are…)? Well, they lied, because this product makes your pores disappear. Apply all over you nose, (any congested area), leave on for fifteen minutes and wash off. Seriously, I have new pores. It’s madness!

They have a whole line for congested skin, designed to remove sebum and refine skin texture. Plus, sigh… it’s super adorable and doesn’t cost 75.00 a jar. You can buy it here.
