Happy Australia Day Ozzies!
I've been meaning to review this product for a little while, but I really wanted to use it for a few weeks to get a real good idea on it's long term benefits.
An ultra lathering soap with effective pore clarifying and purifying ingredients to clear pores of blackheads, whiteheads and other skin clogging impurities. With continued use, pores appear noticeably smaller with a significant reduction in sebum production. Use white soap during the day to brighten complexion, then use brown soap at night to tighten pores and refine skin texture. By Tony Moly.
I purchased this on YesStyle.com.au for just over $10 AUD. When it arrived my first impression (actually everyone in the rooms first impression) was WTF EGGS?. The two soaps come plastic wrapped in a little cardboard egg carton. Now one of the first things I thought about before purchasing this when I read reviews was why the hell TM, wet soaps with a cardboard storage container? But to be honest it's been so hot here in Perth, the soap is usually practically dry by the time I put it back in the box... and tricky tricky, I lined the tray with a bit of plastic wrap. My box is still as perfect as day one.
So that aside I want to emphasize how much I love these soaps. While I'm aware there's really no way to shrink your pores, you can make them less noticeable, and keeping them clean from gunk certainly helps them not get larger and more prominent. These work especially well on my nose and chin where I get alot of buildup. They also cleared up a minor breakout I had at the time - and I've had no breakouts since!
The white soap has a really egg like scent, and the brown seems to more perfumed. I don't find either to be off putting. After use my skin does feel a little dryer so I make sure to moisturize straight away. I have to say just because of this I haven't tried either as a 'mask' (where you leave the lather on your face for 5 minutes before rinsing).
The ultimate test for these little beauties was my brothers face. My younger brother works for a trucking company and is constantly exposed to desert dirt and sand which get's in his pores. So I got him to try this when he got back from his trip this time. Viola! The white soap totally did wonders really getting those pores clean.
Is it worth it?
Of course... only $10 and I just know these soaps are going to last ages as they don't take much to lather up.
Will I buy again?
Would love to, although I suspect by the time I actually finish with them, my skin will be way better and I'll move onto some other wonder product.
I love when a product doesn't break the bank and still manages to deliver on its claims.... I approve Tony Moly. Well played.
