After having this pack of masks stored in my beauty stash for over five months, I knew this weekend was the perfect time to finally use them. This pore care red wine face mask from Korean brand TonyMoly was exactly what I needed to help my lately unusual problematic skin. I have no idea why (maybe lack of sleep) but my skin has been going haywire on me. Think dry skin, enlarged pores, and even a couple of breakouts which I hardly ever get.
This face mask which is jam-packed with different extracts including red wine, green tea, jasmine, and rosemary not only helps in minimizing the appearance of pores but it also hydrates and tightens the skin. This was my first time trying a sheet mask and I was pleasantly surprised. I imagined it to be a messy ordeal, but the mask fit my oval face perfectly and it was very easy to apply and to remove.
The mask itself is drenched in the serum containing all of the extracts mentioned above and it felt smooth on my skin. I never know how my skin is going to react with a face mask especially if I have to leave it on for 20 to 30 minutes. I left this mask on for 25 minutes and there was no itchiness or burning involved. My skin felt comfortable throughout the entire time.
After gently removing the mask rinsing was not required. As per instructions, I massaged the leftover serum all over my face. My skin felt a little sticky and very cold. But I immediately saw that my skin was definitely more bright and hydrated. I’m not too sure about the minimizing of pores. I guess to see a change in pores you might have to do one of these masks more frequently.
I recommend this product to anyone who is a newbie to sheet masks. These are easy to use and deliver quick and great hydration to your skin. Plus when you buy them at Sephora (which I did) you’ll get two of the same mask in one pack. And let’s not forget the price. These are super inexpensive coming in at $7.50. If pores aren’t your problem area, TonyMoly offers several different masks that targets others areas. I’m already looking into the clear skin, brightening, and hydrating ones.
