Because I’m immature, funny packaging make me squeal like this semi-phallic and semi-realistic reproduction of a bamboo section by Tony Moly.
I saw it on cecibeautytherapy‘s Instagram and had to have it. The only thing that could ‘beat’ this is the Phyto Tree Cucumber Gel. I mean just look at it!
Even Roxy wanted to check things out but the back of the rod is in Korean. Usually I would pass on skincare that doesn’t list English ingredients, but this goes on my body so I wasn’t too fussed. It says you can use it for the face too, but I wouldn’t. It also says it’s 99% of something. After using this, I realize it’s 99% WATER =(
The gel is nothing special. It is extremely light and smells slightly like alcohol. It’s exactly like the after-sun care aloe gel that you can get at any drugstore.
After using it all over the body after a shower, it almost feels like I haven’t moisturized at all. I would say this is probably best used as an aloe rub after you’d been at the beach. I will probably put it in the fridge to use as a cooling gel on hot days. At $10 I expected more moisturizing properties but at least it’s cute. I find that Tony Moly really lures the buyer with uber cute package designs but the substance is a little lacking.
Pros: so cute, reusable container if you screw off the top lid and pump aloe in from the top, cooling.
Cons: not really moisturizing, barely does anything to the skin.

Aww ❤ I always love TonyMoly's packaging! They're all super cute!
That’s what keeps me coming back even though I don’t feel their products are that effective.
Yeah same here! Sometimes they work on me but I feel like that’s just a placebo effect
I agree completely about Tony Moly skincare. It’s just okay, but their packaging is some of the wittiest around.
Yah I feel like they use all their efforts on cute packaging and just dump any watered-down ingredients inside.
I’m trying to think of a single TM skincare product that I actually like, and the only one that comes to mind is the fermented snails hydrogel mask–but that one only has 1% of fermented snails! 1%!
(Which they try to make sound more than it is by listing it as 10,000 ppm.)
