My thoughts on TonyMoly I'm real red wine mask pore care
This is a great basic mask and I love having different versions of the mask at home for those days when I just need something extra.
The wine mask has a quite strong smell, but still it is ok since it does smell rather nice. The fit of the mask is really nice as well but if you have larger eyes like me, the holes for the eyes are rather small. But still it is not a big deal. The mask is also rather thick so it won't break when pulling it out of the packaging.
The mask is filled with essence and it does last you a long time on the face without drying out. Which is a huge plus since I am that type of sheetmasker (I know this is not a word, but I really felt it was a nice fit anyway) that were my masks for a really long time, whilst doing something really non-important in bed (don’t get any dirty thoughts now, I am talking about watching something on my computer). Even though it is really packed with essence it wont drip, so it is ok to be moving around while you use it. Why not scare some nosy neighbor while you do.
The claims of the products are: Red Wine: Red Wine Extract reduces appearance of enlarged pores while tightening and purifying skin.
This mask will not shrink your pores, there is actually no product that can do that. The pores on your face are there for a reason and you do need them to produce sebum or your face would be looking and feeling like sandpaper. What a product can do is reduce the appearance of enlarged pores (pores do get larger with age.
After using it I couldn’t see any difference in my pores but my skin felt nice and tighter then before using it. My skin is super dry so I do need to add the rest of my routine rather quickly.
I will always have this type of mask in my stash and if you haven’t tried it yet I really recommend you to.
The first thing I notice in this mask is the smell - it kinda smells like cheap wine, if I can say that? It's a smell I don't particularly like, so that was already a bad start. I applied it and it felt nice, it's very soothing and has a bit of a cooling effect. I left it for 20 minutes, took it off and noticed my face was brighter and well moisturized. The smell sat there on my face, which I didn't really like, but my skin felt nice. The day after all of that went away, my skin returned to what it was, on the contrary of some of the others masks that had stronger effects. The Rice and Makgeolli, for example, had visible effects until the night of the next day.
If I had to summarize this mask, I would say it's nice, but not necessary. You get better results with other masks, the smell is something they could have worked better and there aren't that much benefits. If you're a fan of whine, well, why not, it won't get you drunk at least eheh. But I don't recommend this.
