Let’s test a few Korean skin care products from the Tonymoly Tako Pore line, namely Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack & Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack.
Super cute Tonymoly Tako Pore line targets enlarged pores, clogged pores, blackheads and excess sebum. The Tako Pore products helps to balance the sebum level, absorb excess sebum and deeply cleans the pores as well as remove and prevent blackheads from forming. The products will also minimize the size of the pores. The Tonymoly Tako Pore line includes ingredients like charcoal, rotorua mud, marine extracts from plants, taurin (a kind of amino acid), sea salt from the Dead Sea and natural minerals.
Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack
Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack is a nose strip for deep cleansing of pores and blackheads. The mask resembles a sticker that will helps to remove blackheads and impurities from the T-zone. This is not about a classic moisturizing sheet mask even though the packaging looks similar to that. Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack is supposed to cleanse out pores and minimize pore size, remove blackheads, control excess sebum and moisturize the skin all in one step. The product includes ingredients like taurin, Dead Sea salt and black peat water.
Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack doesn’t actually smell a lot. But a faint scent of something. Doesn’t smell bad nor good. Apply Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack to moist skin. I would actually say, wet the skin thoroughly before applying to make the mask stick properly. A more moist skin at application will make the nose strip stick harder to the skin. The point is to pull out blackheads and dirt for deep cleansing the T-zone. I applied Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack far too low on my nose, but you only get one chance to place the mask, so I went with it anyway. Make sure to press lightly on the nose strip to make it stick firmly to the whole area and all the pores and blackheads.
Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack hurts a lot to peel off, and I’m not getting enough results!
I let Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack dry thoroughly before peeling the nose strip off the skin. The mask becomes hard and stiff after about 10 minutes in to the treatment. It hurts to remove Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack! This is definitely not a nose strip for sensitive skin types. I felt pain in my skin and the feeling lasted for a while after using this mask. I’m not personally suffering from giant enlarged pores. But I only saw a few extracted blackheads stuck to the nose strip. I would have wanted better results after that kind of pain. If you suffer from enlarged pores and many huge blackheads, then I think you would get a better result than I did. There is potential. I would recommend taking a hot steam bath before using Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack to open the pores before applying.
Overall, Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack is like a regular nose mask / pore strip for extracting pores and blackheads, but not providing particularily impressive result unfortunately. The nose strip is easy to handle and easy to apply. But it hurts to peel it off, and it doesn’t feel gentle at all to the skin! The result could have been better in my opinion. The design and concept of the Tako Pore Line is genius and fun. But I have tested other similar nose masks / pore strips which gave me better results. Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack costs from €3.50 / pc. Not a “must-have” type product in my opinion unfortunately. Tonymoly Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack gets average ratings from me.
Tako Pore One Shot Nose Pack Rating 3/5
Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack
Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack is a type of clay mask / bubble mask that absorbs sebum and deeply cleanses the skin and the pores. Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack includes charcoal, rotorua mud and marine plant extracts. The bubble mask exfoliates the skin and removes impurities from the skin. The result is clean, clear and even looking skin.
Well, the packaging is two die for. So cute! I had no expectations of Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack, other than I was very curious to finally try it! Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack is applied to cleansed and moist skin. The product has an incredibly smooth and soft almost mousse like formula which I love. I would describe the texture as a mix between a super smooth clay mask and a mousse. The bubble mask is thick and super easy to apply to the skin. The mask has a dark gray color, something like black lava or ashes. Wonderful fresh skin care type scent and possibly a slight hint of citrus.
As soon as Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack is applied to the skin, the product starts to turn into an airy gray mousse and form a bubbly foam. It doesn’t feel uncomfortable at all. The bubble mask feels nice on the skin. In just 5 minutes, the mask is transformed from a slightly damp dark gray super smooth clay mask to lighter gray foam / mousse mask. The bubble mask can be used throughout the whole face or for example, in the T-zone. Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack is a bit hard to wash off. You have to rinse a lot and it gets dirty and messy in the sink. I would therefore recommend rinsing off this facial mask in the shower rather than the sink.
My skin feels properly deeply cleansed using Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack. And the packaging is absolutely wonderful!
The skin actually feels deeply and thoroughly cleansed after using Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack. My dry skin feels tight though, but not too bad. The skin feels clean and soft. I would mainly recommend Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack to a younger audience. This bubble mask is suitable for normal skin, oily skin, combination skin and skin with excess sebum, impurities, enlarged pores and blackheads. Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack feels too dehydrating for really dry skin types. I would also recommend Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack to anyone who loves clay masks!
Plus for the very cute packaging and that the mask is fast in just 3-5 minutes. Plus for the incredibly nice and fresh scent and that the product feels very inovative and fun. Plus for the lovely smooth and fluffy formula and that the mask is incredibly easy to apply. Also plus for the price which is around €10 with free shipping from Korea, definitely worth buying and trying! Minus because I feel the mask continues bubbling inside the jar, be sure to close the lid quickly and don’t use damp fingers inside the jar. Minus because the bubble mask was somewhat hard to wash off. I would also like you to get some more product than 65gr. On the other hand, i little goes a long way. Overall a super fun and deeply cleansing bubble mask that feels innovative and effective. The skin becomes smooth and clear just as promised, and the airy mousse formula is just wonderful. Thumbs up for Tonymoly Tako Pore Bubble Pore Pack!
