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.

Parachute Advansed Ayurvedic Hair Oil Review

In today’s post I am reviewing Parachute Advansed Ayurvedic Hair Oil. I’ve been oiling my hair since childhood. When I was younger my mother used to oil my hair on a weekly basis and I did have beautiful hair that time. In the past few years because of a lot of chemical treatments such as rebonding, coloring etc made my hair really dry, frizzy, brittle and unmanageable. Since one year I am again more focused on the traditional ways of adding nutrients to my hair in the form of oil treatments to add an extra nourishment to my scalp for getting long healthy hair. This is for a fact that I've received so many compliments in the past few months that my hair has beautifully grown.  For oiling I always love a good concoction of oils which helps in strengthening the hair from within. The main carrier oil which I use to add any essential oil has been parachute coconut oil for a very long time. Parachute is a brand which is not unknown among the Indian population. Their original

Dot & Key Hyaluronic Acid Serum Concentrate Review

Hyaluronic acid serums have been popular in the skincare industry for quite a few years now. Indian skincare brands have been including various hyaluronic acid serum in their range too. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occuring glycosaminoglycan which is present throughout the body. It can hold upto 1000 times the weight in water. It helps in plumping the skin, restoring hydration and moisturisation to the skin and also helps in plumping it up.   When used topically along with a good emollient cream on top it helps in sucking in the moisture from the cream and also prevents transepidermal water loss. Harsh environmental factors such as sun damage, oxidative stress can lead to depletion of hyaluronic acid levels in the skin leading to a dry dehydrated skin. Adding a topical hyaluronic acid serum helps in replenishing the lost moisture and promotes a healthy skin barrier. Coming to the Dot and Key Hyaluronic acid serum concentrate.
