Adorable and effective Korean beauty from Tony Moly

The super cute brand Tony Moly has been all over Instagram for a while so it was with great excitement that I discovered it has landed at Selfridges Birmingham at the Beauty Workshop. There nestled in the stand in the treasure trove of beauty products are a small collection of Tony Moly products including the iconic sleep mask. I was lucky enough to be gifted some items to try for myself.

The Tony Moly Mini Berry SPF15  Lip Balm* (£9.50) is adorable, complete with the flexible little stalk. Inside is a fruity lip balm that smells incredible and feels good on the lips. I’ve been enjoying this immensely over the cold weather and this little cherry pot now lives on my desk for touch ups. It’s slightly addictive with the sweet scent and light texture so perfect for day time use. I love that it has sun protection too as many lip balms that I have don’t.

I have also been enjoying the Tony Moly Panda’s Dream White Hand Cream* (£10.50) that lives inside this very kind looking panda. The hand cream has brightening ingredients, which for me is ideal. I have little marks on my hands from sun exposure over the years. My devotion to sun protection has only crept onto my hands in the past year or so, which means that my hands are in need of care and pampering to keep them looking good. I am always looking for great hand creams and this one has become my latest obsession. First off, it smells great – a light fruity scent. It has a nice thick, almost balm like texture that envelopes my dry skin in nourishment and softens my hands beautifully. This hand cream doesn’t feel greasy though and I can easily type or use my smartphone after applying it without feeling sticky or slippery.

Finally, I’ve been enjoying the Tony Moly Egg Pore Silky Smooth Balm* (£20), which is a primer for under makeup. This smooths out pores and leaves skin looking softly matte ready for makeup. I have dry and dehydrated skin but I found that this has been applying really well, and helping my skin look great throughout the day. This is even more impressive given the changes in temperature from going out into the cold and back inside into heated rooms playing havoc with my skin. I like to use this primer in targeted areas where it is needed. I smooth then pat it over pores on and around my nose in particular. The fruity scent isn’t overpowering and disappears after a short while. I leave this for a minute or two before adding any foundation but that’s just my personal preference to leave things to settle on my skin. I find this personally makes things look better overall and I then avoid applying too much product when I take my time.

If you’re sensitive to scent, the Tony Moly range might not be for you as everything that I’ve tried so far as a strong fragrance. However, if you love trying out Korean beauty products that are cute, work and have great ingredients and technology involved, then Tony Moly is a great brand to start. I really want to try the Latte art Cappuccino Cream-in scrub next! It sounds amazing. If you’ve tried it then tweet me and let me know what you think.

Tony Moly is available at Beauty Workshop, Selfridges Birmingham and online.
