Name of mask :

TonyMoly I’m Real Pomegranate for Elasticity. Made in Korea. 0.71 oz.

Brand :

TonyMoly is a South Korean brand launched in 2006. There is no animal testing on their products.

Unique Material :

It is a 3-layer pulp sheet cotton mask formulated with pomegranate extract and an enriched with three types of essences – water-type, micro-emulsion type and milky-lotion type. No parabens, talc, benzophenone, triethanolamine or colour additives.

About Pomegranate Extract:

Originally the fruit was cultivated in Northern India and the Mediterranean from ancient times, however, there are claims that it originated from the Middle East. It has two unique antioxidants : punicalagins and punicic acid. Punicalagins have been shown to have three times higher antioxidant activity than red wine and green tea infusion. It not only has antioxidant power, but it is anti-aging with the oil from the seeds helping to strengthen the epidermal layer of skin, preventing wrinkles. Pomegranates repair skin damage by extending the life of cells which are involved with collagen and elastin production – this aids in elasticity and keeps the skin appearing youthful. It also has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties by protecting against free radical damage to heal wounds, treat skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis and to protect from sun damage.

Pros :

Hydrating and Moisturizing

Non-greasy

Cooling and refreshing effect

Non-sticky – was able to apply mask and continue doing tasks

Pleasant smell

Cute packaging

Cons :

Would require more frequent application of this mask/pomegranate extract to see the full effects of elasticity

Review :

4/5 stars.

Packaging –

Really liked it, very bright, colourful and well designed. Striking package that definitely attracts the eye. Also not the typical rectangular/square package that sheet masks usually come in – really unique!

After opening –

Smells very nice.
Very saturated mask with enough left over fluid to spread over entire neck and from shoulders down to arms. Fits well around eyes, nose and mouth
I put it on for 30 minutes and it sticks well to the face so I was able to wear it and do work at the same time without worrying about it sliding off.

After removing mask –

Little bit of a sticky residue leftover- maybe lends to the “elasticity”?
Skin felt very hydrated after
Felt cool and relaxing

Next day –

Not too sure how it improved on elasticity after one use but skin did feel more hydrated.

I would repurchase!

Where I purchased it? Cost?

I bought it at Urban Outfitters in USA for $2.50.
