I ve been fighting with blackheads ever since I started taking care of my skin. This is one of my biggest problems and for now I haven’t yet found a perfect solution. Tony Moly is a Korean makeup and skin care brand that g ets more and more popular every year. I’ve heard about the famous “Tony Moly eggs” a lot so when we were in Hong Kong I couldn’t resist! There are 3 different ones: a scrub, a mask and a blackhead gel. Of course I chose the blackhead gel – Tony Moly Egg Pore Blackhead Out Oil Gel.

I tried to take a picture of the description and the ingredients but packaging like this is almost impossible to take a picture of. So I decided to type the ingredients over!

Wow what a list! They put literally everything in there, starting from mineral oil ending lemon and orange and egg yolk extract. There are parabens in it and also alcohol.

My opinion:

I’ve used this product up, threw it away and only then realized that I didn’t even take a picture of the gel itself. My excuses for that! It looks like a semi-transparent yellowish gel with rare little particles in it. They dissolve pretty quickly once applied onto your face. The gel changes the color and texture once applied to your face, too: it gets white and more foamy. You’ll have to keep it on your face for around 10 minutes and then wash it off. I’ve read so many good reviews about this product, I was really hoping it could help me…In the end I ended up using it every day until I’ve used it up and I must say, I did use it up pretty quickly. There is not much product in it! I didn’t really see any effect…none whatsoever. It’s just a pretty toy and a decor for your bathroom, but nothing more. Too bad!

Overall note: C.

Where you can buy it:

I bought it in Hong Kong, at sasa store.
