This mask was the first thing I wanted to try as soon as I saw the Pokemon collection in Tony Moly, but I didn’t buy it. Why didn’t I buy it? Because the Pikachu mask (not the other characters’) you can get as a present when you buy any of the other products! Tonymoly Pikachu Moisture Mask Sheet looks different from the one in the collection (this one is rectangular, the other one actually is Pikachu shaped) because they wanted to differentiate the ones you buy from the ones you receive as an extra(gift). This one, the squared one, is the one you receive as an extra. But I should let you know – both masks are the same, the same formula, smell, same everything except package!
So, as soon as I got it I tried it. And kept using it. And now I decided to write about it! I’m sure most of you like this mask, because Pikachu is so cute, even if you don’t care for Pokemon itself.
It claims to moisturize through honey! This is a direct quote of the package: “The nourishing honey provides full vitality to skin as the nourishing honey deeply penetrates into skin”.
For people who wonder what the other masks do, the Fairi (Charmander) mask is brightening, the Kkobuki (Squirtle) mask is hydrating, Isanghaessi (Bulbazaur) is for black pores, and the Naong (Meowth) mask sheet is for nutrition. So, as you can see, there’s masks for all tastes, and with all sorts of ingredients (just like this one has honey, the others promise grapefruit, lotus, green tea and vanilla.
Ingredients: (only for the Pikachu Honey mask sheet)
Water, Propanediol, Glycerin, Cyclomethicone, 1,2-hexanediol, Honey Extract, C12-14 Pareth-12, Acrylates/c10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/sodium Acryloydimethyl Taurate Copolymer, Tromethamine, Xanthan Gum, Pacrylhydroxamic Acid, Disodium Edta, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Parfum
How to use:
- After cleansing your face, open the mask and spread it evenly on your skin.
- 15 to 20 minutes afterwards remove the mask and pat the remaining essence gently, so that your skin will absorb all of it.
My Skin Type: Oily T, dry U, blemished, sensitive, and allergic.
Tonymoly Pikachu Moisture Mask Sheet Honey Review:
So, as soon as I opened it I was extremely happy. It has been happening like this every single time I use it, and I don’t know if I got lucky or if it’s meant to be like that, so I decided to mention it anyway! It opens not in a straight line, as you can see the front and back cover are disleveled by half a centimeter. And it might not seem like much but I always struggle when they open in one single line, I’m really bad at opening stuff so this really has facilitated my job. It doesn’t always look as beautiful as this, but the front and back always separated when I opened, so thank you mask-makers!
The mask is relatively heavy, and is quite soaked in product. I have used masks that were so soaked and dripping, and this is not one of them, but it still has enough product to be on the “soaked” side!
It was poorly folded, as you can see by all those fold marks, but that might be because it’s just an “extra” you receive when you buy something. Anyway, it doesn’t influence the mask itself, it’s just because on good masks (I consider this to be a good mask within the cheap price range) you distinguish them more on details like the mask fabric quality, packaging, and the folding techniques they use. In this one they are all a little sloppy – but for a good mask for this price I’ll accept it.
Although it’s a transparent serum so you can’t see it easily, if you look closely you can see how thick it is. I actually had to squeeze the serum out of the package to get this swatch, because it wasn’t sliding down (like, for example, the Mamonde ones do). Most of the serum was on the mask sheet though, which makes me a little sad since I usually enjoy applying the rest of sheet masks serums on my arms, neck, chest, but this one didn’t give me the chance to (I only was able to apply the leftovers on my hands and wrists).
So, as I said, the serum is thick and most of it sticks to the mask, those are the important points to remember!
Now, the scent. It is nice, discreet, and it smells like honey. But not in a sweet and exaggerated way, in a pleasant way. You recognize the smell if you know it’s a honey mask, otherwise you just feel a nice and gentle, and relatively sweet smell. Very nice.
Honestly, I am just showing this photo because the mask’s serum feels like a real serum. Like the ones you buy for that sole purpose. So, if Tony Moly releases a honey line I will definitely want to try that serum!
This is how it looks like after I spread it, it absorbed, and a few minutes have passed. It doesn’t shine much because it’s not greasy (good thing – good masks aren’t greasy or heavy like a real serum), but my skin is glowing. Literally, it’s glowing as if I had used highlighter!
Now to the most important thing. Did it work? Did it live up to their promises?
It did. I feel my skin as nourished as if I had just applied an ampoule, but without the “extra weight”. I can’t speak for the other masks, but I can tell you that this one is everything they say it is.
I still have a bunch of these masks to use, and I will enjoy each of them. I have also been wondering if I should purchase a 10 or 20 mask pack while they still have them, since I do like them so much.
Will I try the other masks in the collection? I don’t know. I don’t doubt they work, but what I look for in a mask is nourishment and this is the one for that, so…
