Tony Moly 5 Day Mask Project: Day 3 Review

By FaFoFi in , , , ,


Day Number 3 of the Tony Moly 5. Day Project! As mentioned previously, the peeling and water glowing masks treated me well. I'll mention the same disclaimer as in my last post. Even though this post is coming much later than the original "Day 1" post, I completed this mask set in the allotted 5 days. 

Since it's been a while, let me refresh your memory on the five masks that come with the program. 

The masks, in order, are:
Day 1: Peeling
Day 2: Water Glowing
Day 3: Toning
Day 4: Lifting
Day 5: Total

According to the pack:

Day 3: Toning Mask

Concept of Vitamin injection (Brightening) / Lightening up the skin tone. With a effects of whitening from niacinamide and vitamin C derivative, the whitening mask sheet lightens up the skin tone and makes skin clear and clean. The cellulose fabric with excellent adhesion and transparency helps lock in active ingredients within skin with its moisture retention ability.


My super tired before face! After you've pulled out all the toxins from your face and restored moisture, day three is entirely dedicated to evening out your skin tone.


I didn't expect this to work wonders (I wish there was a single treatment that could even out my skin), but since the first two masks went so well, I had high hopes for this mask too!


Like the water glowing mask, this mask is made of plant cellulose as opposed to paper or cotton.


The mask experience was the same as the previous mask: cool, refreshing and relaxing.


As usual, I waited longer than the allotted 20-30 minutes and wore it for 50 minutes.


So excite.



Despite the change in lighting between the before and after photos, I do think the cooling nature and the vitamin C lightened my redness a little bit! I don't think it did anything for my hyper pigmentation though.

Between Day 2 and Day 3 I didn't think there was that big of a difference. My skin was certainly happier and my acne was getting better, but I didn't have that "stare in the mirror" moment like I had after Day 1.

Onward to Day 4!

Club Monaco OOTD

By FaFoFi in , , ,





One of those "all club days" with light accessories. I still really love Club and I feel like this is a classic casual summer outfit you can wear without fear. Except the white shorts, be careful where you sit! 


What's your casual go to outfit?

Tony Moly 5 Day Mask Project: Day Two Review

By FaFoFi in , , , , ,


Day Number 2 of the Tony Moly 5. Day Project! I was pleasantly surprised with the first "peeling" mask. I felt that it had visible results on my oily, sensitive, acne prone skin. Even though this post is coming much later than the original "Day 1" post, I completed this mask set in the allotted 5 days. 

Since it's been a while, let me refresh your memory on the five masks that come with the program. 

The masks, in order, are:
Day 1: Peeling
Day 2: Water Glowing
Day 3: Toning
Day 4: Lifting
Day 5: Total


According to the front and back of this package: 

Concept of Hyaluronic Injection / Enhancing the watery protective barrier. Highly purified Hyaluronic acid acts as booster to help strengthen moisture barrier. To prevent dryness and keeps skin moisturized with an abundance of hydration. The Natural porousness of the air puff promotes the absorption of the essence; Its capacity to float keeps the surface moisturized for a long time, showing excellence in flexibility and adhesion


My skin before! You can still see some of the Tony Moly Shocking Lip, Lip Stain I was using lingering on my lips.  That stuff stays! After the "peeling" mask of silk and clay my skin was happy to receive the promised "moisture" from the water glowing mask.


This mask uses plant cellulose to hydrate your skin. According to the back the cellulose holds onto the essence the mask is soaked in and transfers its beneficial properties into your skin.


The cellulose didn't feel too different from a regular paper mask, but, pulling gently on the mask a couple of times, I felt it had a higher tensile strength than paper.


Popping the mask on, the essence was slightly more watery than a usual mask, but was cooling and relaxing to my skin. I think these are pretty common properties of any face mask though.


With masks like these I always try and wait a little bit longer than the suggested 20-30 minutes. After all, it's just a longer period of letting the essence soak into your skin! 


I pushed this mask to 50 minutes, but it was getting slightly itchy on my face. I peeled it off and used the remaining essence in the pack to re-moisturize my skin.


After the 50 minutes, my skin felt hydrated, bouncy and happy. My skin was a tad dried out by the first day's mask, but the "water glowing mask" definitely made up for it. Although the redness in my skin wasn't very diminished, as I finished the rest of my PM night routine, I felt that my skin was smoother and more hydrated.

Looking at my skin there isn't really a visible difference, but it certainly felt better. At this point, I was pretty hooked and excited to see what pack three had in store!
