I’m starting to slowly work my way through my TonyMoly mask haul, and the mask I have up next is the Red Wine one. It claims to “tighten uneven skin texture with enlarged pores”. I feel like I have pretty big pores on either side of my nose, so I was definitely curious to see how well this worked!
I was worried about how this would smell – things soaked with wine tend to smell awful and vinegary to me! However, I found that the mask smelled lightly of artificial grape/grape lollies. Like the tea tree mask, the mask was richly saturated in a thin, watery essence.
Here is the ingredients list:
Purified water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Panthenol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol, Xanthan Gum, Phenyl Trimethicone, Red Wine Extract, Carbomer, 1,2-Hexanediol, Propanediol, Tromethamine, Camellia Japonica Flower Extract, Chrysanthellum Indicum Extract, Green Tea Extract, Melissa Officinalis Leaf Extract, Rosemary Leaf Extract, Aspalathus Linearis Leaf Extract, Thymus Vulgaris Flower/Leaf Extract, Jasmine Flower Juice, Dipotassium Glycyrrizate, Caprylyl-Glycol, Illicium Verum Fruit Extract, Allantoin, Disodium EDTA, Perfume
Like the other flavours in this collection that I’ve tried, the mask doesn’t fit me amazingly well, but the thinner fabric allows me to pull and stretch it into an ideal shape. So did it meet it’s claim of shrinking my pores? Unfortunately not. However, it still worked well to hydrate and soothe my skin due to the other beneficial ingredients such as green tea and Japenese Camellia extract. I give this a 2.5/5!
