TonyMoly Egg Pore Steam Balm Review

Hey 👋

Thank you for stopping by 🙂

Hope you are doing great 👍


Today I am reviewing TonyMoly Egg Pore Steam Balm. Before starting the review let me confess something, I only bought this steam balm because it had a very cute egg head packaging.




I've tried several TonyMoly products and they have worked great for me. Tonymoly egg pore steam balm is supposed to take care of the blackheads present on the skin to give a clear complexion. Egg white has been used since ages for tightening the pores, reducing blackheads and firming the skin.


Price- 750 INR

Shelf life after opening- 12 months


Ingredients-

Water, Glycerin, Butylene Glycol, Niacinamide, Alcohol, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Prunus Semulata Flower Extract, Peg-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Hydrolyzed Collagen, Tocopheryl Acetate, Sodium Citrate, Allantoin, Panthenol, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Sodium Hyaluronate, Xanthan Gum, Disodium Edta, Phenoxyethanol, Methylparaben, Fragrance


Packaging-

The balm comes in an opaque white egg shaped packaging. 


Texture-

The balm feels gooey at the initial look with yellow colored granules in it.


Directions of usage-

Take an appropriate amount of the balm and start massaging on the skin with circular motions, focusing on the areas where you experience more blackheads and oil.


My experience with the product-


This was my first time with blackhead removing steam balms. I've never tried anything like this before. I was a bit skeptical about it working on blackheads as I've used several “blackhead removers” in the past but they didn’t work. I apply this balm on a clean dry skin massaging it in circular motions mainly targeting my nose and chin area. The balm initially feels gooey and thick but as it is massaged on the skin it turns into a cream like consistency and starts heating up. You can actually feel it getting warm on the skin.

The steam balm does contain some exfoliating yellow beads but they don't feel harsh on the skin. Tonymoly egg pore steaming balm contains egg shell powder, charcoal powder and sea salt extract to remove dirt, oil, dead skin cells  and impurities from the skin. Frankly speaking after washing it off after 3-5 minutes my skin did feel a lot smoother and brighter than earlier but it didn't do anything for the blackheads. Nowadays i don't get a lot of comedones but I do have a few which were unaltered by this balm. I did notice some tightening of the pores after the first usage itself. It didn't dry out my skin and helped in controlling sebum for a few hours.


Pros-

  • Contains ingredients like charcoal, egg shell powder and sea salt.

  • Gives a brighter complexion.

  • Skin feels soft after using it.

  • Reduction in the size of the pores.

  • Firms the skin and makes it look fresh.


Cons-

  • Contains fragrance.

  • Amount of the balm is quite less for the price offered.

  • Didn't do anything for my blackheads.


Will I recommend it?

If you are just looking for instant pore tightening and brightening on the skin you can give this a try but for me it didn't do anything for the blackheads which was a bummer. So I won’t be purchasing it again.


Hope you found the article helpful.


Take care.

Minimalist Salicylic + LHA 2% Face Cleanser review

Salicylic acid and Capryloyl salicylic acid (LHA) have been gaining popularity in the skincare industry for quite some time now. Salicylic acid is a beta hydroxy acid (BHA) which has keratolytic properties that helps in unclogging pores making it suitable for acne prone skin types. LHA on the other hand is a derivative of salicylic acid which has an added fatty chain to make it more lipophilic and gentle for exfoliation. In today's post I am sharing my experience with the newly launched M inimalist Salicylic Acid and LHA 2% face cleanser . If you have read my previous posts you must know that most of the minimalist products worked really well for me except for the PHA toner so I was pretty excited to use its face cleanser as well. The face wash is sulphate free and contains both BHA and LHA for gentle exfoliation of dead skin cell layers. Clogged pores can lead to the formation of non-inflammatory (blackheads, whiteheads) and inflammatory acne. Hence adding such chemical exfoliator

Minimalist Multi Peptide Serum Review

Peptides are made up of two or more amino acids which are the building block of proteins.  Collagen is naturally present in our body which is made up of polypeptides. As we grow older the collagen starts depleting which can result in presenting the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. Adding a topical peptide serum or moisturiser in your daily skincare routine can delay these signs while promoting a healthy and youthful skin. Whenever you want to incorporate any topical peptide product in your skincare routine always invest in a good leave on product rather than wash off products. The reason behind it is that leave on products are there in contact with the skin for a longer period of time helping to show results more effectively. In today's post I am sharing my views on the Multi Peptide Serum by Minimalist . Minimalist is an Indian skincare and hair care brand that has come up with affordable serums and moisturisers with a good percentage of actives in them
