I mean the packaging! OMG these Korean massage masks are just too adorable. Korean brand Tonymoly is one of the best on creating lovely, fun and innovative packaging. I’m talking about colorful and irresistible jars that makes you wanna buy the product at first sight. How about an apple and a tomato in this glossy plastic material with leaves and a stem and everything. The details are spot on. You are immediately curious to hold, feel and smell these products. This is skin care when it’s the most pleasurable and fun I feel. A trademark for K-beauty!

Tonymoly’s massage masks Tomatox and Appletox are both very unique and perhaps somewhat difficult to grasp to be honest. What are those masks really, what type of product are we talking about? One might expect some kind of stinging acid peel or a tearing scrub type exfoliation. But both these massage masks look much like creamy, thick concentrated white smooth creams that you simply massage into the skin. But do they really have any effect on the skin at all?

I’ll be honest, I was very surprised the first time I used and tested the Tonymoly Appletox and Tonymoly Tomatox massage masks. I had expected more tearing, a greater effect or at least something more …
The feeling at first use was like -What have I missed here?
Tonymoly’s massage masks are creamy and concentrated, and the formula is wonderfully smooth and soft. These masks are easy to apply and massage into the skin. These are 2 really gentle facial masks that feel very soft and kind to the skin. Perfect for sensitive skin types that doesn’t tolerate sharp tearing grains but still needs light exfoliation, for example acne prone skin. You simply massage the product into dry clean skin for a few minutes. Let it sit, then rinse your face. There are some shared opinions about these massage masks in various reviews. Some simply love them, but some say they do not benefit their skin at all…

Tonymoly Massage masks contain no sharp tearing grains nor strong acids. These masks are all about incredibly gentle and soft exfoliation.

Tonymoly Tomatox Magic Massage Pack

The Tonymoly Tomatox Magic Massage Pack is all about clear skin and providing new radiance and a brightening effect. Ingredients include tomato extract, centella and various fruit extracts like lemon. A multi functional nourishing massage mask that is soothing the skin, detoxifying, providing new radiance, smoothing out the skin tone, targeting age spots and pigmentation, revitalizing, softening and hydrating the skin. The Tonymoly Tomatox Magic Massage Pack contains high levels of antioxidants protecting the skin against free radicals and external stress.

Tonymoly Tomatox Magic Massage Pack has a natural and fresh scent of tomato. A mild and pleasant scent. I’ve noticed very few small grains in this cream, but it’s definitely not a question about a facial scrub – at all. The cream looks concentrated in the jar but still feels airy and easy to apply on the skin. Even if you massage your skin effectively with this cream for 2 minutes, the cream is still not fully absorbed by the skin. It kinda stays on the surface of the skin, like a white mask. I almost get the vibe of a classic creamy clay mask. No tightening drying feeling at all during the treatment time. The mask feels soft and comfortable to wear. After rinsing off the mask, the skin feels fresh, clean, soft and smooth. I find that the skin is absorbing other skin care products easier after using this massage mask. Very nice! I would describe Tonymoly Tomatox Magic Massage Pack as a soft, creamy, slightly exfoliating, cleansing and refreshing facial mask. Almost like a creamy airy clay mask.

Massage the Tonymoly Tomatox Magic Massage Pack onto clean dry skin for about 1-2 minutes. Allow the face mask to work for another 5-10 minutes, then rinse your face. I would mainly recommend Tonymoly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream for targeting an uneven skin tone, pigmentation, dark spots or tired dull skin in need of new radiance and a brightening effect. The mask is suitable for normal, combination and oily skin types. Also perfect as a gentle exfoliating mask for acne prone skin. Tonymoly Tomatox Magic Massage Pack does make dry skin feel tight and almost stripped after use. Rather go for the Appletox mask if you have dry skin.

Make sure to massage the skin thoroughly using the Tonymoly massage masks to get the best possible results. Otherwise, there might be a “meh” moment with these 2 products.

Tonymoly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream

The Tonymoly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream provides a “flawless” complexion with its revitalizing effect. This facial mask is enriched with vitamins and minerals from apples. In addition to apple extract, it also contains papaya and AHA. The Tonymoly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream is gently exfoliating, soothing, softening and hydrating the skin. This face mask provides new radiance, a brightening effect, moisture and nourishment to the skin.

The apple mask has the most delightful scent of green apples. I love it, the scent is spot on! You almost want to dive into the jar, jummy. The massage cream is white and creamy but at the same time it’s airy in some way. Much like a concentrated lotion. I usually take a quite big amount of product and massage it into the skin for a few minutes, until all the product has been fully absorbed by the skin. Tonymoly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream is easy to apply and massage into the skin. It’s almost like you feel the acids in this product during the treatment. Especially if you leave the mask on your skin for a little too long. You know that somewhat stinging sensation. Let the mask work for 1 more minute after the massage, then rinse. Tonymoly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream leaves the skin soft and supple and not at all dehydrated. My dry skin tends to feel tight after using exfoliating masks, but this one works well on dry skin. I would describe Tonymoly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream as a softening, creamy and refreshing gentle facial mask with the most amazing scent of apples.

Massage the Tonymoly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream onto clean dry skin for about 2 minutes. Allow the face mask to work for another 30 seconds. Then rinse your face. I would mainly recommend Tonymoly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream to tired dull skin, rough skin, acne prone skin and dry skin types. Suitable for normal, dry and combination skin. This one does not feel stripping or drying after application.

Tonymoly’s Massage Masks are super gentle to the skin. These masks provide a refreshing and very soft exfoliating effect.

The green Tonymoly Appletox mask is more hydrating and it exfoliates the skin with gentle acids. The product is absorbed by the skin during treatment. The texture is slightly lighter, glossier and more airy than the red one. The red Tomatox mask is more like a creamy clay mask that sits on top of the skin. It contains very few small grains and the mask is targeting an uneven skin tone and pigmentation. The texture is slightly more dense and concentrated, and the color is bright white.

Use the red Tonymoly Tomatox Magic Massage Pack if you want a detox effect and clear skin with new radiance and a smoother skin tone or if you have normal, combination or oily skin. Use the green Tonymoly Appletox Smooth Massage Peeling Cream if you want an exfoliating, hydrating, nourishing and softening facial mask that refreshes the skin or if you have normal, combination or dry skin. I would think that both of these masks are perfectly suitable for acne prone skin or sensitive skin that needs gentle exfoliation. Make sure to massage the skin properly with these masks to achieve the maximum effect. Otherwise these masks might fall a little flat.
