Tony Moly Gold Black Sugar Mask
I stumbled upon the Tony Moly Gold Black Sugar Mask in TK Maxx. I don’t normally buy things from there because I find all the kbeauty items generally overpriced, but ths cost of this mask was comparable to what they sell on ebay so I bought it for about £9.99.
I think the product is pretty self-explanatory, it’s a black sugar mask which comes with a gold powder used to help exfoliate and brighten the skin.
It comes in a 100ml tub as pictured! It seems like a small amount but the product is so thick that you really don’t need a lot.
Using the Tony Moly Gold Black Sugar Mask
The Tony Moly Gold Black Sugar Mask is very sticky and thick when you spread it over your skin. The granules feel very big and I was worried that it would be too rough for my skin, but I still couldn’t resist rubbing them into my skin. And you know what? it wasn’t rough at all and completely painless!
And you know what? it wasn’t rough at all and completely painless!
The instructions are to scrub the face with the mask first, leave it for 5 to ten minutes and then rinse with warm water. If you are skin is sensitive they recommend not to leave it for 5-10 minutes,
I have to say I was really impressed with this mask and felt it made a noticeable difference compared to a lot of other products I’ve used. My skin felt so soft afterwards. I really felt that it helped to absorb more product when I was sheet masking. The next thing was my skin looked SO GLOWING and SMOOTH.
There is a downside and that is its ingredients. Check out the COS DNA for it.
It flags up 3 parabens. I can’t claim to be an expert on ingredients. It’s certainly something I SHOULD educate myself about. I put it on my face, I really should care.
I didn’t actually know why parabens were bad. I’ve only noticed a lot of cosmetics and skincare items say ‘PARABEN FREE’ but never felt the need to investigate. Just a quick dig, reveals that parabens are ingredients used to reduce things like mould and fungus growing on products. How does that affect us as consumers? well, there is a big debate linking parabens to nasty things like breast cancer (due to the increase in oestrogen in the body).
SO, where does that leave me? I could have some incredibly smooth and glowy skin with this scrub! But for now, it’s better to be safe than sorry. In the mean time, I’d like to find out more about parabens. What’s your take on it?
