Because I’m immature, funny packaging make me squeal like this semi-phallic and semi-realistic reproduction of a bamboo section by Tony Moly.
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.
