[Review] Tony Moly I’m Real Makgeolli Mask Sheet Skin Purifying

Tony Moly I’m Real Makgeolli Mask Sheet Skin Purifying Review:

My Korean sheet mask is depleting so I decided to get some last time. I am still in search of a cheap everyday (or night) mask since Innisfree’s Its Real Squeeze line has failed me. I have been considering Tony Moly’s I’m Real series (I feel that it is a counterpart) for some time already so I did a mini haul of this line. Last night, I have tried my first ever mask from Tony Moly – I’m Real Makgeolli Mask Sheet Skin Purifying.


  • For the benefit of those who aren’t familiar, Makgeolli, the star ingredient of this mask is a sweet alcoholic beverage that is native to Korea. It is made from a mix of rice or wheat and undergoes fermentation.
  • It has a milky, off-white color which is almost similar to what you get whenever you wash you rice.
  • Apparently, Makgeolli can make uneven skin tone look radiant and glowing.

Tony Moly I’m Real Makgeolli Mask Sheet Skin Purifying Review:

First off, I would like to commend Tony Moly for making really attractive stuff. I would have to say that the packaging of this mask is really cute; I bet you can tell because it is equally photogenic.

As I tear the pack, my nose is tickled by a really intoxicating scent! It smells a bit sour and alcoholic at the same time; the scent really lingers, surprisingly, my nose wasn’t really distracted by the scent of it!

The essence of this mask is milky white. I worriedly dip my finger and see if it is sticky –it was slimy, alright, but it didn’t feel tacky at all! The essence is a bit thick so I didn’t get any dripping as I pulled out the sheet. The material used in this mask is of decent quality, it is a little thicker compared with the average sheet mask that I use.

Tony Moly I’m Real Makgeolli Mask is on a roll because I also love how it fits my face! The material hugged my face well and was able to cover majority of my face.

The experience was all good until my face started to get itchy and really uncomfortable –I had to flap-open the sheet to check if I get redness or any signs of irritation.

My skin looked normal so I continued wearing it. The sensation lessened as I wore it longer anyway. Even at 30 minutes mark, the sheet was still wet! I couldn’t wait till it fully dry up or I would really doze off.

There was still a lot of essence atop my face when I took off the mask so I had to massage it until it was fully absorbed. My face feels really smooth but I wouldn’t give full credits on this mask because I used Skinfood Rice Wash-Off Mask(reviewed) prior to this.

However, three things I was absolutely positive about: first, it made my face clean, clear and even out. Second, it left my skin radiant really glowing! And finally, I am in love with Tony Moly I’m Real Makgeolli Mask!

I think this would work with any skin type, I do, however, highly recommend this to people with uneven and dull skin. Although I suggest to patch test first because it contains ferments and it may cause irritation if you’re allergic or got really really sensitive skin.
